Possible to remove/mod empire colors effect on ship color?
« on: April 05, 2015, 10:11:55 PM »
Something that's been bugging the hell out of me is how an empires color affects the color of their ships.
For example, choosing cyan as your empire color results in orange ships, green results in purple, and so on..
Is it possible to mod that out, or at least control what color you get?

You can override the ship shader in data/shaders/source/pbr_ship_ps.txt which controls how the ships look. Within that shader file there are a series of commented-out lines that control the look of the armor. You can comment out the pair of lines we use (compliment of the empire color) and go with one of the other preset pairs, or create one of your own.

Thanks. Using the silver preset now, looks great.
