when using the wavelength selector hud to select a new color, all attachments recolor correctly then after a few moments recolor white. the main unit stays the color that was selected.
on channel_lights the following commands are observed:
color 0.836432 0.822778 0.822349
followed shortly by:
color 0.8 0.9 1

For very deep historical reasons, the canonical value for system color was handled by multiple scripts (_foundation and _arabesque) and could also be affected by _ambiance after 8.0.4 because of the post-TP flashing effect. Support for the wavelength HUD has continually atrophied since 8.0 came out because it works by directly sending a light bus message instead of the more polite system command approach. 8.5 will probably need an updated color-tweaking HUD.
