    Green: Economic
    Blue: Factories
    Red: Strategic
    Yellow: Defensive

    Color is more intense on T2 buildings. Confirmed working normally with Better Build Bar.

    Extra thanks and credit to Corang for packaging up my images into this mod and to trialq for fixing it for the latest patch!

    What you need to do is make a simple shadowing mod. I've uploaded a template you can use, just open mod,json and fill in the details. Then paste the folders and files you have in your download into the pa folder and rename the top level folder to match your mod id.

    The version on PAMM was broken so I updated it to v1.1:
    • Fixed to work with latest patch by moving shadow location from 'alpha' to 'main/game'
    • Removed images that didn't need to be shadowed (I think they were unaltered)
    • Optimised remaining images

    This mod is for highlighting buildings. To highlight units, get 'fabulous selections'. The only units this mod highlights are orbital radar, don;t know if fabulous selections does and if there is a conflict.

    I have fabulous selections, it changes the selection bar. I'm talking about the build bar. this mod only works when an engie is selected, not when a factory is.

    I always had trouble finding the teleport in that mess of icons before I used this mod :)

    This mod is awesome!
    it is one of the reasons that I dislike the balance mods, they disalign with this mod :(
