on paper, this might not seem like that much of a good idea, but hear me out;


don't starve already has color codes for objects in the game, and there are already commands to temporarily recolor objects

so it might not be too difficult to add paint, and being able to recolour stuff would make base building and map making way better, and more fun! it would also add a lot more possibilities to base building.

a megabase would look great, a rules board could have rainbow signs, and if you add skins to the mix you can make tons of new build ideas and make building (both in creative and in survival) more fun overall.

to not make paint frustrating to make, it could be simple recipes for multiple paints (or maybe it could have durability like the bucket-o-poop?)
(or, you can craft paint with slurtle slime and make that more useful!)
an alternative to multiple paints, could be one bucket that allowed you to cycle between colors

the paint could be restricted from certain objects, such as mobs, items, fx, and other stuff, such as farm debris, ponds or the fuelweawer's fossil spikes.

you could even use the color codes to make a paint that makes everything look like nightmare fuel! (0,0,0,0.3)

i know this is a lot to ask for, but please consider it klei!
