I've never noticed my sims reacting any differently to objects that were their favorite color as opposed to ones that were not.  Is there really any benefit to making things exactly your sims' favorite color?

I've read that if rooms are decorated in the exact hex code of your Sim's favorite color, that he/she will get a decorated moodlet from it.  Personally, I've never been able to make it happen.  However, I use the hex codes of my Sims' favorite colors for clothing and cars, just for fun.  I also thought this would be good information for anyone who likes to build and participates in the building contest.  For example, Sarah Jones' favorite color is violet, so having the hex code for violet will make it easier to decorate for a contest.

I've read that too, on the Sims Wiki.  I haven't seen any in-game evidence to support it.  A wiki is only as good as the last person to edit it, and unfortunately sometimes people post information there that they've heard somewhere or read in the Prima guide (which is not always accurate), but that has not been confirmed or tested or discovered by looking at the code.

I do use my sims' favourite colours, for fun, like you do, and not just for clothes or decorating.  In one neighbourhood (just for something different) I use their favourite colours for their hair, with their skins from the red, green or blue palettes.  It gives the game a very cartoony look.

While on the subject of colours, here's some non-sim sites that can help with coming up with colour schemes when you're decorating.  They're easy to use, put in the hex code of a colour you want to use, and then you can see some colours that might work well with that colour.

I'll give that a try, although I always get the well decorated or beautiful vista moodlet anyway.  Thanks Pam.  I only was able to come close in my house building contest entry.

Yeah, we'll go lenient with this first building contest because of this.  It's still a work in progress.  :)

My purpose for sharing Sarah's favorite color was simply to provide additional inspiration.  That's why it wasn't included under Requirements, but rather shared in the description.  Basically the entire Contest is designed to boost your creative thinking, rather than provide a formula for what kind of house to build.  :)

And it certainly has done that!  I keep seeing all kinds of different things to do and ways to think.  This first house is a basic, starter house built on the cheap.  Something I have never done in the past, so it really stretched my thinking.  I wasn't even totally happy with my result but felt it was acceptable for a first try.  Now I'm itching to try my hand on my own to build more starter houses just for fun and experimentation.  No time though. 

I really appreciate the fact that this contest exists, and certainly it wouldn't be here if not for your efforts.  Thanks so much for doing this, Ariagirl.

Ha, I love the codes for white, yellow, and black. So original, hehe, though I know the codes are generated by the computer, they're still funny.

Well the hex codes are not exactly computer-generated. Each code is based on the amount of red, green and blue contained in the color. White is "ffffff", meaning  255 255 255 in hexadecimal, that means it has the maximum amount of red, green and blue, while black should have been "000000", meaning that there is no color at all. So the black used in the game as a favorite color would be in fact a dark gray. That's funny.

True, but it's not a number made up by the developers is what I meant. Though that is funny, why isn't black 000000? Unless, they're using the pigment colors, not the colors made by light.

This is awesome! I was wondering what the heck spice brown was when I saw it as one of my sim's favorite colors.  I'll have to make some modifications to his bedroom now.

Wish I would have seen this post before I put up my house for the July building contest!  I had no idea violet and purple were different colors lol.

No worries about that, Tommy.  Your house is spectacular!  It's my fault this wasn't published sooner.  I didn't really make the connection of how helpful it would be until the contest had already started.  So sorry about that.

Has anyone had any success with getting any kind of increased mood from surrounding their Sims with a favorite color yet?

Now that I am thinking about it, I believe so.  I had built a small room for my sim to sculpt, it wasn't anything fancy.  I always put a radio and at least a couple of nice things in there, well, I put one of those wavy lights in there, from the wedding set.  My sim went in the room to look at the sculpting table, his mood was about half way, just under the mark.  His favorite color is geen and I have pretty much always made their lights the same color as their favorite.  Anyway, I changed the light color to green and put nothing else in the room, he went back in and I noticed his happiness bar had gone up, almost to the top and then when I turned the radio on, it hit the top, so, I assume that colors affect their mood somewhat.  May not be much, but added to favorite music or anything else and at least it helps some.

I tested it with a blank four wall room and nada. Nice to have the codes though, wasn't sure what spiceberry was. It's kind of a plum color.

I am going to assume it has an effect that is just not so easily seen. Because if not then really what it the point in them having a favorite color?

I've never been able to prove that the colors do anything.  And I agree, it seems pointless if they don't do something.  I've been using their favorite colors for clothing and cars, just to have some sort of organization.

I've had trouble getting the hex codes to stick when I've customised the furniture etc.  I would set it and save the change but if I went back to that piece of furniture the hex code would often be one number different eg. spiceberry has a 1 at the end (can't remember the whole string offhand) but when I went back to some of the furniture the hex had a 0 at the end.

Has anybody else noticed this and do you know if it decreases the chance of a decorated moodlet by not being exact?

HelenP,

Once you get a color "just right" (either Hexcode value or it "looks right") do you save it to the "Favorites?"

You know, that little heart-thingy on the customization palette?

Like you, Pam, I've never seen any in-game benefits from color-coordinating stuff to match a Sim's favorite color. But I've found saving stuff I've customized (and saving color schemes or modifications I've made to patterns I see in-game) helpful in organizing / sorting things.

And with the "moodlette" concept, it'd be very easy for EA to (at some point) add a buff like "Favorite Color! +20 Mood" sometime down the road.

I have this happen fairly often.  I've just thought that the game makes minor adjustments to the color for some reason beyond my understanding.  I gave up on getting the decorated moodlet long ago.
