Also take a look at Holoraphic Pip-Boy 8000 by turetu, i helped him develop the modification of the color in-game and added a  Compatible Version with Pip-Boy Customisation Framework.

Ireally, REALLY love this mod. I like playing different faction characters, and being able to customize my Pip-Boys to match the different factions SO EASILY, without having to download multiple mods, and enabling/disabling them for the different characters I play, is completely awesome. - LE102071 03 February 2016 - 06:46 PM
