Colourful ESO
Version: 2
by: Dolgubon [More]
Tired of a drab ESO? Brighten it up with Colourful ESO! This addon will change make many different strings in ESO have a different colour.

(Does not individually colour words)


This addon was the 2017 April Fools joke that was in Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter. However, the method it now uses to change colours is much safer and should result in a lot less conflicts, if any.
Version 2:

Changed how the addon inserts colour into the game. As a result, many things that were previously coloured may no longer be coloured. However, some things that were previously not coloured will now be coloured.
Also, API bump.

I'll try to get that quickly, as it shouldn't be too difficult.

Colourful ESO Update

After 10 months, this finally gets another update!


The addon no longer unilaterally rewrites hundreds of localized strings. Instead, it changes various UI controls so that they colour themselves. This means that there is a much, much lower chance of the addon conflicting with any other addons, and also that it is much easier to resolve any conflicts that do show up.


The UI controls that it does change are largely manually added. If you are interested in adding more UI controls to the list, feel free to check out the github here: https://github.com/Dolgubon/ColourfulESO

It's still working for me. It's possible that a few things won't work anymore, due to changes in the game's code, but some things still work (e.g. the skills window)


Unfortunately, this addon is rather unstable, since it overwrites a lot of things, and for that reason I'm not really supporting it.

This addon would be AWESOME if it gave players the option to pick color hues and individually alter text strings to our liking.

I realize this feature could take a lot of effort to implement, so for now I'll track your addon's progress and install it if and when the text color better reflects the different aspects of the game (health = red, magicka = blue, stam = green, etc). In all aspects of the UI: tooltips, char screen, etc.

Unfortunately, I will not be doing that. There are over 6000 strings, and I need to be very selective in what strings I choose to specifically treat. Also, I will not be giving players the options to pick colours, because as I said, there's a ton, and I doubt anyone will want to go through them all.

Hoping this can be fixed as I really like both addons and don't want to have to choose between them.
Thanks for the direction, at least. I'd love if you could send me the whole list of your addons though. There could be more than one causing the problems.

I was crashing on April Fools Day and don't run Lootdrop, Continued, so it might be more than just 1 addon. I will send you a list of my addons when I get home from work.

Thanks!
