Why, yes, that is still a terrible pun. Thank you for noticing.
Note: This mod is not Outdated. It was updated on August 27th, 2016.
[COLOREBOUND] adds a very subtle glow to several of Starbound's in order to help you find what you need while digging around in the dark without just having to pick a direction and hoping for the best.
In game, the effect looks like this (stare at the image for a few seconds):
[COLOREBOUND] adds a glow to the following ore types:
aegisalt - copper - crystal - crystalgrass - diamond - erchius - ferozium - gold - iron - moonstone - platinum - plutonium - prisilite - silver - solarium - sulphur - titanium - trianglium - tungsten - uranium - violium
HOW [COLOREBOUND] WORKS
In Starbound, glow is added to an element via direct RGB value. For example, to add a pure white glow to an object, the value of the glow would be [255, 255, 255].
In giving the ores their own glow, I sampled the second lightest color of the ore (from the ore png files) and the reduced the exposure of that color by a factor of eight.
For example, the second lightest color (of which there are four) of uranium is [255, 163, 254]. Using this RGB value directly, however, would cause uranium to glow bright pink, which is obviously far too glaring and would illuminate everything underground too much.
Taking this color, I reduced the exposure of the color by -8.0, arriving at an RGB value of [5, 26, 0]. This gives uranium a glow this is just a few shades above black (which is also the color of the darkness of the underground!) without making it stand out too much.
That's really all there is too it.
Note: the glow of ores will vary per monitor brand and individual brightness / gamma settings. In addition, the darkness of the room that you're in, how long you focus on a particular area, and how bright the area surrounding the ore happens to be, will all mess with your eyes.

Adds a very subtle glow to several ores to make them easier to find (without them becoming beacons).
