I'm in need of some simplifying. I've made a "Slime Race Mod", and I felt like making a visual variant of the Spike Sphere to go with the theme. It looks perfectly fine, but I'd also like to have a color to match whatever palette a person chooses to use. At the moment, the only thing I can think of is to create 64 recolors of the same tech, which is nuts, but I'm wondering if there might be a wizard here somewhere who would know a simpler method. Also, I'd like to have these techs appear on the console at the outpost, but it's not happening at the moment. Am I missing something, or is that just not possible to do? ... I feel like I should learn about this "effectDirectives" bit in the .species file.
