    Well, identity theft is becoming a problem on servers.
    So an identity code will be nice! Your ID Code is
    your color code. Shirt, pants, undershirt, skin, shoes.
    This is EXTREMELY HARD to copy.
    The code is very long!

    The order of the code goes:
    Shirt
    Skin
    Pants
    Undershirt
    shoes
    Hair
    Eyes

    An Example:
    22225513925515390189230159219255116160105601851578314699236

    This is the combination of the numbers used to identify your terraria
    color code. Its Shirt, skin, pants, undershirt, shoes, hair, and eyes from left to right.

    Keep this code safe! Otherwsie, people can just use your color and get you into trouble!

    Idea by me. This will add security!

    Character/Inventory editors can change your clothes, hair color, etc. Also, the code would be way too long, I don't think it's really needed.

    Or, chat would work like so
    (+)Charname: asfafgdasg

    and clicking plus would show the steam name, much simpler& convenient.

    I know, but good people don't use invedit!
    It's impossible to duplicate a code by looking at it!

    Rofl.
    You lack even the most basic understanding of how codes of that sort are made.

    And would most likely remove the lan functionality which would seriously make me rage.

    What is exactly what do you want to protect with this code?

    Do you realize there are...

    *glances around*

    /whisper Mods that can make your character COPY SOMEONE ELSES COLOR!!! :OOO:O:O:OO@!:ODJKAIOFJOAINGOIN#!

    I bet you didn't think of that. Nor the fact that lots of people just click start with the basic character.

    If you want to use colors as data source, you should first convert them to at least hexadeximal format to save 1 third of the stringlength.
    Then it should be encrypted.

    And thats the most basic encoding.

    Even then thats not a good method to fight impersonation.

    If a code was going to be used, wouldn't it be way simpler to just generate a GUID for each character when the character is created?

    I don't agree... they will use a Character Editor and they will change just the hair color from 255 to 254... nice idea but won't work.

    This is hard to improve and to control, since characters' data are stored in the client not the server.
