Hi,

 use ConvertStringToColor and ConvertColortoString, then you can save color as regular strings in playerprefs or anywhere else.

Thank you so much Jean, this is what I figured also.

May I ask, I think I saw somewhere that strings can be a performance issue is that a thing or am I just tripping, sorry I figured ide ask someone with experience just to be sure...

Hi.
strings should not give performance issues.

Things like create/destroy are heavy on performance :)

Hi,

 Well, PlayerPrefs is a performance issue to begin with. So use saving and loading ONLY when required and not within the game loop, only inside menus or after the game is done or loading.
