About this mod

NOW WITH REALISM VERSION --- Changes arrow feathers/fletching to bright colors so you no longer go insane looking for them after you shoot.

Permissions and credits
Donations
You shoot 13 arrows, one of them hits that stupid hare. Good luck finding the other 12. This mod tries to help that by making those arrows POP in the vegetation. Plus, it adds color to such a "shades of brown" game, and it looks cool.

CHANGELOG

1.1
Added REALISM version
Added BARRED RED version
Added SHADES OF BLUE version
Added SHADES OF RED version
Simplified installation
 
CHANGES MADE
 
Better Piercing = RED
Piercing = PINK
Quality = CYAN
Wounding = BLUE
Better Long Distance = YELLOW
Long Distance = YELLOW
Better Hunting = YELLOW
Hunting = YELLOW
Tournament = YELLOW
Broken* = YELLOW

(*) When your arrow breaks, it becomes a broken arrow with yellow feathers. Which means your pretty blue arrow will go yellow. There's nothing I can do about that tiny immersion break.
 
PS: Those are the arrows I could test. I'm sure there are more.

For even easier-to-find arrows that GLOW try herpderp2332's mod
 
HOW IT WORKS

 
The game has 4 different ARROW FEATHER texture files, 3 of which have 2 different feather types - the other only 1 - which it then assigns to each arrow. Therefore, I cannot change EACH INDIVIDUAL ARROW, as they belong in one of 4 categories. In theory, you can have 7 different colors. I added ORANGE, but I could not test it in game as I could not find an arrow that used it. GREEN was not used because I believe it would blend in to the forest vegetation.
 
INSTALLATION - THIS STILL WORKS WITH 1.3+
(I'm not going to upload a bunch of new files just because of a new folder format - will only do so when I actually update the mod soon)

(revised - thanks hellstorm102 and rudy88)
 
1) Go to your DATA folder
IE: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\KingdomComeDeliverance\Data

2) EXTRACT zzz_ColoredArrowFeathers.pak HERE

3) NAVIGATE TO KCD’S _FASTLOAD FOLDER
IE: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\KingdomComeDeliverance\Data\_fastload

4) EXTRACT zzz_ColoredArrowFeathers.pak HERE

5) Play the game.
 
UNINSTALATION

1) DELETE zzz_ColoredArrowFeathers.pak from your data folder and your _fastload folder

BUGS (not really)

1) Arrows inside buckets and other things don’t look good because the game renders lower quality textures on those. The feathers look more like flaps.
2) Quivers have arrows with yellow feathers in them. This is because quivers use a single arrow texture. So your arrow may have blue feathers, but your quiver won't. You can simply not use the feathers_diff.dds file in this mod (which will make the feathers tan like in the original game), but other than that, this can't be fixed. You will lose out on the yellow arrows if you do this.
