You can't have too many lightsaber colors, can you? No, of course you can't. As long as they're not something downright ridiculous (like brown or black - though technically that's a shade, oh gods those are awful), extra colors can help personalize whatever Jedi has them a lot.
Anyways, this edit of JCarter's adds in a few new saber colors and alters the existing ones. As reiterating what's already explained in the readme would be pointless, I'll just quote it:
This mod alters the lightsaber colors, and adds four additional colors. The yellow, orange, and cyan lightsaber colors now look like yellow, orange, and cyan (as opposed to some orangish color, Heart of the Guardian, and Mantle of the Force). And all colors have been modified so that the core is a bit whiter. New colors are pink, bronze, Heart of the Guardian, and Mantle of the Force (the latter two have bonuses similar to the ones in K1).
The differences are hard to spot at first, but if you compare them to screenshots of the default saber colors you'll notice a difference. I think it's a pretty good improvement myself, and the extra ones are another plus.
Note: Please remember to give the author of the mod feedback, as the download count isn't particularly verbose. Written comments tend to be much more useful and encouraging.

INSTALLATION ____________________ Extract the zip file and copy all files from the SaberColors folder into your Override folder (if you do not have an Override folder, make one). If you already have an upcrystals.2da file in your Override folder, then you'll have to do some .2da editing. Otherwise, just drop it in the old Override as well. .2da editing the upcrystals.2da: Open up the upcrystals.2da you already have in your Override, and edit the HEART, BRONZE, and MANTLE lines to match the ones I have in my upcrystals.2da. And also create a new line for PINK, copying the line I've made in my upcrystals.2da. (These lines are in all caps in my upcrystals.2da file.) ____________________ 2. Description ____________________ This mod alters the lightsaber colors, and adds two additional colors. I'll explain it by color. Blue - mostly the same; the core is a little whiter in order to look more like the prequel sabers Green - Same as above Red - same as above Silver - same as above Violet - same as above Viridian - same as above Orange - instead of the Heart of the Guardian color, it's now actual orange Cyan - instead of the Mantle of the Force color, it's more of a bluish green Yellow - it's more yellow, as opposed to the orangish color that it is in the game Bronze - new color; sort of brownish Pink - new color Heart of the Guardian - uses the "orange" color from the game Mantle of the Force - uses the "cyan" color from the game, modified a bit to look more silvery The Heart of the Guardian and Manlte of the Force lightsabers have added bonuses like they do in KOTOR 1. To get the new color crystals, you'll have to use the cheat console or the KOTOR Savegame Editor. The crystals are w_sbrcrstl_51 (HOTG), w_sbrcrstl_52 (MOTF), w_sbrcrstl_53 (PINK), and w_sbrcrstl_54 (BRONZE). To uninstall, remove all the files from your OVerride folder and undo any changes to upcrystals.2da if you made any. I suggest keeping a backup of your upcrystals.2da for easy uninstallation. ____________________ 4. Bugs ____________________ None that I am aware of.
