    You know I thought this was in the DebugConfiguration Database, but it doesn't look like it is.

    A nice mod to play with your preferred Color. I like the Poland Color but Poland's Color value was not indicated. Able to add Poland Color value. Thanks

    Glad you are enjoying the new colors. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "Poland's Color value was not indicated. Able to add Poland Color value."?

    I like this mod very much. The colors you chose are nearly all a big improvement over Civ 6 Vanilla.

    My only minor complaint is that it's hard to tell England/Victoria and Greece/Gorgo apart, as in this screenshot:



    The swordsman on the bottom is English, the one in the center is Greek, but they appear almost identical.

    Thanks for the feedback! :)

    I've tried out this bright red on dark red combo for Sparta. What do you think?

    Thanks for that mate, I always play as England and it is a bit confusing at times.

    Hi! Really great mod, but I was wondering why can't you change the colors in the pick-a-civ menu? I saw a mod that changed the symbols of the civs and he managed to change it all the way through
    btw, will you update stuff for Persia and Macedon?

    Those icons have the colors "baked in" in that they are present in the actually icon image not generated dynamically. I basically lack the 2D skills to a great job with this and have many other things to focus on modding-wise.

    Perhaps you'll find someone who can? It just bothers me on the OCD level lol
    Also in the mod description you have the civs icons so you can use them

    @plus The way the color entries are done has changed. You'll need to convert the decimal RGB channels to integer RGBA channels by multiplying by 255, adding the alpha channel (in this case it's always 255-opaque), and then changing the entries (Kongo as an example):

    From
    Code:
    UPDATE Colors SET Red = 0, Green = 0.2667, Blue = 0.2196 WHERE Type = 'COLOR_PLAYER_KONGO_PRIMARY';
    UPDATE Colors SET Red = 1.0000, Green = 0.3176, Blue = 0.0745 WHERE Type = 'COLOR_PLAYER_KONGO_SECONDARY';
    
    To
    Code:
    UPDATE Colors SET Color = '0, 68, 56, 255' WHERE Type = 'COLOR_PLAYER_KONGO_PRIMARY';
    UPDATE Colors SET Color = '255, 81, 19, 255' WHERE Type = 'COLOR_PLAYER_KONGO_SECONDARY';
    I can post an updated SQL that I did if it's OK with @Deliverator .

    @Laurana Kanan If you have the updated SQL that would be great! It will save me the trouble of updating it myself.

    Hey, just thought I'd pop in and say I'm flattered that you took inspiration from my mod.

    I haven't gotten around to purchasing Civ 6 yet, so I had been wondering if someone would take up the slack or if people would be waiting for some kind of color update. I wasn't even sure if the Civ 6 colors were in need of changing, but it seems like you've improved them, so I'm happy with that.

    I'll be sure to give this a try once I do make the purchase. :)
