MultiplayerColor ColorBlack
RGBColor = R:100 G:100 B:100
RGBNightColor = R:100 G:100 B:100

Add this code to the bottom of the page.

MultiplayerColor Color(Name of color)
RGBColor = R:(#) G:(#) B:(#)
RGBNightColor = R:(#) G:(#) B:(#)
TooltipName = Color:(Name of color)

Replace the "(Name of color)" texts with the name of your color. RGBColor is what the color looks like. R is how red it is, G is how green it is, and blue is how blue it is. Keep RGBNightColor the same as RGBColor. Replace all the "(#)" with your desired numbers.

Preview Color
To see with the color looks like, open MS Paint and go to Color>Edit Colors. Click on the "Define Custom Colors >>" button. Add what number you put in R:(#) in Red, G:(#) in Green, B:(#) in Blue. There should be a preview to the left.

Save all changes if you're done. See the link below for a list of colors.
