    I'm working on a custom race, and what I'm trying to figure out is which of the following things to use to get my race to recolor properly:
    My race's design has "hair" that contains both the body's color and a secondary color also used somewhere else on the body. I'm also trying to give them recolorable underwear. If I understand correctly, altOptionAsUndyColor, headOptionAsHairColor and hairColorAsBodySubColor should achieve the secondary color being both recolorable and usable in both the hair and the body sprites, and the underwear being recolorable, but do I need to add anything else to be able to use their body colors in their hair? I looked at the novakid species file and didn't see any such thing there, but I'd like to be sure.

    Add "altOptionAsHairColor"
    set your "bodyColor" to target the underwear
    "undyColor" and "hairColor" should be interchangable with this setup.
    Let us know if this works!

    I figured it out eventually. All I needed to do was do things the way the glitch do, using their detail colors for the body, their paint color for the underwear and their lights for their secondary color. The glitch, incidentally, use
    "altOptionAsUndyColor" : true,
    "headOptionAsHairColor" : true,
    "altOptionAsHairColor" : true,
    "hairColorAsBodySubColor" : true,
