Building ships as much as I do, I can't tell you how useful any one of those features would be, let alone all of them. This would be amazing! Devs, please!
Good luck, and good hunting.

I second this idea. It's such a pain to remember what color I used on a build, especially after a week break from building.

Color of the selected block is now visible in building mode

WOO, it's not the three suggestions I made but it's better than nothing!

... But then its still a pain to search the color in the palette, since colors offset randomly when new color are picked up.

Even without the function for tagging favorite colors, it at least would be fine if the colors already used in the build are highlighted in the palette.
Universe is but the energy floating in space with a set velocity. Everything on top is basic geometry.

Yeah, this would be quite useful. Atm I mainly memorise a few favourites and re-use those and some close off-shades of them; but if it's a ship I haven't touched in a little while with some random colours, it can be a bit difficult to remember the exact shade.

Some kind of tool to favorite colors would be nice for sure.  Eyedropper as well for when you want to modify other's masterpieces. +1
