Extended Vanilla Palette / Colors

Compatibility Addons
Dark UI Fix
UI Overhaul Dynamic Fix

This mod builds on top of the existing color palette.

• This should be forward and backward compatible with any version of the game.
• Multiplayer*, Ironman, and preexisting save-file compatible.
• Incompatible with any other mods that edit the color data or palette UI.

Retains the Game's Natural Colors
This mod builds on top of the existing color palette for empire generation. This will add missing areas of hue while still working from the original color palette. Every new color should work alongside the preexisting colors.

Larger Map Variety
With now 52 colors, this will more than quadruple the number of permutations of empire color you can encounter in a new game. No more encountering color clones on the map!

Filling in Missing Options
There are several new brown and grey colors for a wider selection of muted tones: in case you want a nice trim color for your emblem, or if you want a more subtle color for your empire. Spectral colors between green and orange have been thoroughly fleshed out; as has the space between green, blue, purple, and red.

An Organised UI
Color options on the empire creation screen has been sorted into proper color ramps, and divided into warm and cool colors; so it will be easier to find the color you need. The swatches have been made into circles for aesthetic value.

* You can use this mod in multiplayer but no one will be able to see non vanilla colours unless everyone has the mod installed as well.

The original mod stopped working with Fallen Empire's and hasn't been updated for over a year by the author. I have fixed the mod and modified the colours file for my friend but decided to upload it for anyone else who liked the mod. If the author ever updates it or wants me to take this down just leave a comment or DM me on steam.

Its not better than this mod AT ALL. Sure, there are plenty of color choices, but they all result in the same tiny handful of colors in-game. Pick yellow, golden-yellow, yellow-orange... it doesn't matter. Your ships and stations will always be sickly pure yellow. Same with any other color family. Dark blue, ocean blue, light blue... your ships are blue. I thought it was a bug, but since they aren't fixing it...

I mean it took the Devs way too long to add in more colors, more emblems and more flag backgrounds, lol.

Thanks. I figured I would let you know, since some modders do not play anymore.

Yep, a good thing too. It makes sure more colors are compatible with other mods because it's the standard now. I fixed this mod up for a friend and made it public for others to use, but now something better has come along :)

ok it's probably my mistake or games because for some reason some mods just turned off in my mod patch.

Dunno if this is an issue the others are having but when using other mods like Just More Flags or Crest Materials with this it borks the scroll slider for both flag options and emblems.

I'm having issues seeing what's broken with the mod. It appears to be working fine with the UI overhaul compatibility mod in the description and in vanilla. My friend who plays modded isnt having issues as well.

If anyone can provide a screenshot it'd be appreciated
