    Hello

    Is it possible to show a system color picker when the game is running?

    This is to provide the user with the ability to colorize objects at will.

    Regards,
    Andres

    It's possible, but there are problems, such as not being able to use it in full-screen mode. I went through this with trying to get a system file requester to work, and ended up writing my own in Unity.

    In the Unity manual, under the GUI scripting guide, there's an example in "Extending UnityGUI" of making a RGB compound control, which might get you started. If you wanted a color wheel, you could make a texture and use ReadPixels to get the color, plus a slider to brighten and darken it.
