Colourful ESO
Version: 2.2
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 2.1:

Added a nil check so that if some addon attempts to use SetText with nil as the text, it won't cause an error.

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.

Not everything is colourful. I can't programatically make everything colourful without causing game crashes or issues, and as a result anything that is colour changed needs to be explicitly said to be colourful in the code. If you look at your screenshot, you'll also notice some stuff in the top left, and additionally if you check the skills screen or quest journal you should see more stuff, as well as various things in other places.

It seems Elderscrolls of Alts is setting the text of some UI control to nil. I've added a nil check so if some other addon does the same thing it won't be an issue.

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.
