Summary0021505: Color picker for trim-only AI minor factions doesn't work
DescriptionI set the AI Hunters to have a bright pink border so I would see them better and I only see them as having a white border like the generic AI ships. The AI Wardens have a distinctive orange border so I left it as default and I do not know if changing the border color as no effect like it seems to have on the AI hunters.
TagsNo tags attached.

I've noticed this with the Praetorian Guard as well.

I'm suspicious that the "Set trim colour" doesn't really work for Hunter/Warden/Praetorians

So what's happening is that for updating AI minor factions (warden/hunter/praetorian) we set those colors by setting fields (PraetorianGuard_BorderColor,HunterFleet_BorderColor) on the associated AI faction; we never interact with the ConfigurationForFaction for the minor faction itself. Then in ProcessFactionConfigCustomFields() we call faction.GetNextFactionOfSpecialFactionData( "PraetorianGuard" ); and set the center/border color for those directly.

However, SyncTeamColorToAndFromOthersIfNeeded() looks at the ConfigurationForFaction for the AI minor factions, and those never get set. So we always wind up overriding with the default values.
