So, I recently discovered a mod I've been looking for in the NV nexus for months--turns out it was in the Fallout 3 Nexus. Who knew?--and while its everything I wanted, there's a bit of a snag that I'd rather not get used too if I can help it.

 

You see, the mod in question is a HUD mod, and while that shouldn't be an issue... well... it only works if you set the HUD color to White. Change it to green, to amber, and it changes the entire color scheme to match, which for this particular mod takes away the appeal.

 

My question is this; if I open up the interfaceshared0.dds file and change the color of the pip-boy mascot from white to green, will that change the in game color to green? I'm operating under the potentially very flawed belief that setting the HUD color to white is more a less removing the color filter entirely, and with that train of thought changing the white to green at the source seems like it will leave me with the original, classic-looking HUD while also giving me the default green color I usually play with.

 

I'm not really at a place where I can test this out myself, unfortunately, so I thought it best to see if someone here could give me an answer before I'm able to test it out myself. Anyone know?

So, to answer my own question--since I was finally able to get on and check for myself-- yes! If you change the color from White to whatever color in the dds file, than in game when you set the color to White it will, in fact, be whatever color you made it instead. You'd need to change a lot more than that, due to the fact that there is more in the HUD than the pipboy icons... Anyway, thanks for all th---

 

Oh, I was about to say "thanks for all the help". You know, because it was a simple question, that literally could have been answered with one word if anyone had been bothered. But hey, I get it. That one dude needed someone to find a mod for him, and that other guy--you know, the one who wanted to use assets from NV for 4--needed to be told what he wanted was considered piracy a few times. I guess my question just didn't make the cut in such a competitive environment.

 

Just... god damn.

Dude. Slow down. Would you rather have gotten the wrong answer because someone just guessed without knowing for certain? Given the number of mods on this site and how many do what you asked about, I'm assuming not many people have tried so not many would have that one word answer.

Thanks for answering your own question though. I was actually curious when I first read it because it is something that hasn't been touched on a lot. I genuinely thought it was a classy move till you started going off at people for 'ignoring' the question.
