Vanity items are used to make your Townsfolk more distinguishable. These items are purely for cosmetic purposes and the wearer gains no added effects. Although, in some cases, vanity items dropped from dead enemies have suffixes and prefixes which give the item the described bonuses.
Colors are made at the Color Mixing Bench. Six colors are currently available. Three 'base' colors, and three 'mixed' colors are available. Colors are primarily used in the production of Hats and pavement roads.
The mixed colors are green, purple, and orange and can only be made by mixing base colors. Yellow and blue colors create the green color, red and blue colors creates the purple color, and red and yellow colors create the orange color.
Hides and materials
The only currently available vanity items are hats. Oddly enough, hats require no bench or zone be present for construction.
Colored hats are made out of an animal or unifallow hide and a color. Blue, red and green hats may be crafted using their respective gels instead of colors.
These hats do not require a color to craft. Badger hats use only badger hides, while feathered hats use an animal or unifallow hide, and a skootenbeeten feather.
