How to how to add more empire colors
« on: October 25, 2014, 05:16:19 AM »
I don't like the colors that we were given to choose, so i added a few colors that were more appealing to me. The reason i'm posting this is so that other people that want these colors, but do not know how to add them can.

In order to add more colors you'r going to have to get the hex value of the color. Just type in the color you want with hex color after it into a search engine such as (grey hex color). Once you have the hex color open your star ruler 2 folder, go into data, then empires. There you will find colors.txt open it, do not run it, display it.

 In order to add the colors, just type new lines that look like the ones already there with some different text. There are some examples below, you can paste them over to your .txt if you want.

//Grey <Color name goes here
Color: #808080 <Hex color goes here
        Background: emp_bg_grey <Color name goes after bg_

Color: #363737
        Background: emp_bg_darkgrey

Color: #fffff0
        Background: emp_bg_white

You also won't be able to edit these colors within game like the others, but they will appear when selecting you'r empires color. The colors.txt folder should be in Steam/SteamApps/common/Star Ruler 2/data/empires
