    --------------PROJECT ATLAS GENERATOR:PROCEDURAL COLORS OVERHAUL FOR NO MANS SKY VISIONS-------------

    --------------------------FULLY PROCEDURALLY GENERATED MOD. NOTHING MADE BY HAND--------------------------

                                                                                          -------------ABOUT:------------

    This mod adds color palletes tables to the game , that are generated using carefully controlled procedural generation. It adds color diversity to the game on a scale never before seen,and provides infinite and endless discernable(visually distinguishable) color combinations.the mod after "VISIONS" update is fully overhauled ,big thanks to hello games for adding new feature to control color assignment and hence does not include any more RNG based color generation.

    This mod is part of my Project Atlas Universe Generator for No Man's Sky. To know what Project Atlas is , check this reddit post that contains details about it.

    The mod affects colors of all stuff that are generated on a planet - trees,terrain,creatures,rocks,stones,planet rings etc and also affects space background colors.

    The longer / more planets you visit, the better are your chances of finding really rare and awesome colored planets. it offers a incentive to actually explore and find that rare planet with example gray grass and yellow trees!!!you never know what the planets will look like till you actually visit them.

                                                                               -------------FEW FEATURES------------

    1) completely overhauled for visions update. now every color is carefully generated and no more RNG is used. hence any form of ugly/garish colors are removed from the mod.
    2) Biome specific colors now added.planets will have colors that suit their specific biome type. (only possible since hello games added a feature for this with visions update.)
    3) very colorful and varied multi color planet rings are possible too.
    4) millions of distint shades, now added after visions update.

    and more unlisted features
