        You can add custom colours if need.
        Run mod first time and you will get Configuration\MenuConfig.json file.
        Open it with text editor and add lines per samples.
        «White» is special colour, do not remove it.
        You can use CamelCase standart .NET colours (case-sensitive) or colours in hexadecimal format (like «#12AB90», case-insensitive).

        If chests seem too dark, you can increase brightness of tint sprite (Resources\ChestTint.png).

          This is an indicsive person's wet dream ;)

          Just curious though (but colors are awesome enough already) and to save people from asking later:

          If someone wanted to change the look of the chest do they edit the chesttint.png? Or would they have to edit the vanilla craftables.png/xnb.?

          Could this somehow lead to having multiple different looking chests people can use at once?
          • Also would it be possible if someone were able to put individual little labels on chests like [a cherry for fruit chest, carrot veg] the space is really small, but you know

            Now need change both files. But I can control full process of drawing, so it's no hard to use custom sprites.

            Main problem is to save additional information about type. I really want to save compatibility with in-game saves. I will think of this.

            Same trouble as the above.
            Can you create an example for picture label? I will try to implement this.

              For the images, something like this:
              The boxes' labels could be cusomizable with whatever little image the player wants to upload to make fit

              Edit and it would just overlay on the top of the chest cover [with w/e color] n.n

                Finally, a way to know what's in the chests before I open 5 of them!
