[ Editing the colors and icons ]
Using a hex editor search for the the following hex in the epv with the desired color of your choice.
Monster drop is gm000_014.epv3
Slinger ammo is gm000_030.epv3
Bandit mantle drop is gm000_120.epv3

epv default colors:
Monster drops - FE FE FE
Slinger ammo red - FF 41 41
Slinger ammo green - A1 FF 61
Bandit mantle drops - FF FF 91

epv vibrant colors:
Monster drops - FE FE FE
Slinger ammo red - FF 01 01
Slinger ammo green - 01 FF 01
Bandit mantle drops - FF FF 01 (the 2nd one, it is followed by another FF)

It uses RGB for the colors and the last byte is brightness

Using A better MHW Texture Converter you can create your own icons by replacing either paw for the paw version or mat, amm, and zny for the unique version
The images are located in nativePC\vfx\dds\custom

The gifs for the version 2 are jittery because it was captured with 24 fps gif creator
The images are 128 x 128 but can be bigger (256 x 256 works)
For your own custom images you should do the same but bigger images may work. I just didn't try testing myself
To get the outline effect I used photoshop, using the quick selection tool on an image with transparency I then went to Select, Modify, Contract and contracted by 2 pixels and deleted the selection (it worked for the 128 x 128 image, if you use a different size you'll need to adapt the size for your image)
