Don't give me any politically correct crap about not making a Color Mod for any other holiday.

I'm actually rather curious about what you can make... Since there are lots of colors to use and OP2 colors aren't really easy to change... Good luck if you start on it!

Would be very nice. Even a edited christmas header would be good.

Ok where is arklon shouting about having walking santas like a noob :P

Color schemes eh.  I think that would be more done with maps then any thing if you make your own tilesets for a winter and a Christmas.  Player colors themselves are fine as they are and dont change in the minimap very well.

You know, I was going to do this, but then I realized nobody would be around to use the mod, so...
I'm not going to waste my time on something nobody will use.

Edit: Don't worry though.  I spent my time working on something much more useful.

A year later, I'm making it!  I don't know if it will work because of the way mods are set up with 1.3.5, but what the heck!

And I think I CAN make a Christmas-themed UI!  I can work with the silver borders, at least!  That has to count for something!

Here are the colors:
Santa Red (Red.  Not too bright, not too dark.  Just... Red.)
Snow Whi- Err, I'll just name that one "Snow" so I don't get sued by Disney. (Will be slightly cyan simply so it will show up cyan and not white on the minimap.  Otherwise, think white.)
Evergreen (A very deep green.)
Icicle Blue (Will be a lighter blue, but dark enough to show up as dark blue on the minimap.)
Gingerbread (A brownish gingerbread color.  Yellow on the minimap.)
Holidays (A warm pink color!  I couldn't think of a better name though.)

Now I just have to make it!

It's "Christmas" in the secular sense you fool.  You'll notice "Virgin Birth" and "Resurrection" aren't available as colors...

Edit: I finished the "Gingerbread" color and am working on the UI/border now.  I'll probably be finished the border tomorrow.

I say "why bother?"  It's a pointless thing that takes up time that could be used working on something more useful.

Too late; I've done too much work on it to give up now.

Sometimes the answer to the question "Why Bother?" is a simple Emphatic "Because I want to!".
