Blue better than Green

Description
This is a simple modification to the item colors in the game, which switches the positions of the blue ones and the green.

Throughout my playthrough I always felt excited when I discovered a blue item, while the green ones didn’t spark this interest at all. (Even though they were better.) This is almost certainly World of Warcraft’s fault where blue items have a higher rarity.

Thus, an item which would normally be green will now look like a blue one instead, and vice versa. The mods rarity order is as shown below.

White - Green - Blue - Orange - Gold

----------

To activate the mod on older save files, follow these instructions:

1) Find your savegame directory "\Documents\Larian Studios\Divinity Original Sin\PlayerProfiles\....\Savegames". (Make a backup just in case.)
2) Activate the mod.
3) Start a new game and save it. (We use "newMod" as example.)
4) Find the new "newMod" savegame and copy the "meta.lsb" from it to an older savegame you want to have the mod active on.
5) Load the old savegame.

I found this solution in the comments section of another mod. Thanks to user Feel - Malfrat, or whoever came up with it first. It worked just fine on my own end game save. (With the exception that I spawned in the middle of the Cyseal ocean afterwards.. Nothing a quicktravel couldn’t fix though.)

Sad thing is : Green - Blue - Purple was not invented by Blizzard at all... there where RPG's (including Divine Divinity) wich already had that collorisation long bevor.

Thank the gods of Blizzard that World of Warcraft exists to tell us how things ought to be done in every game.

Borderlands teaches us a good way to remember item rarity and the corresponding colors.

ah i see,
not got far enough into the game to test it as i havn't looted anything good yet :<
was just curious because the dye mod and the 4 player mod doesn't seem to work :S
(the 4 player mod with the anime char on it i forgot how to spell her name :<)

but if someone can beat me to the testing that'd help xD

1stReaper: Hello! I'll download the game and see. I have not tested it in a couple of months, but no one is complaining, so I hope it works well. :)
