About this mod

A completely customizable set of recolours (plus original addons) to all elements of the menu background. Over 20 million potential combinations!

Permissions and credits
I was sick of looking at the cute pastel Overgrown Flowery Interface by Amaryn and getting my eyes blasted by the vanilla neon blue sky in the menu background, and thus the idea for this ridiculously overscoped mod was born. 

Rather than just making a cute recolour or two of the sky in the menu, we ended up deciding to make a mod which lets you change the following background aspects using an extensive catalog of colour options (and more):

- sky
- clouds
- mountains
- trees

I also made a couple of custom overlays which go on top of the trees to add mist and sparkles for additional ~vibes~.

The default settings randomise all these aspects every time the game launches, so you get a new configuration whenever you play!
This standard randomiser is set up with some of the more fringe options like greyscale removed to aim to give you a cute background every time, but you can use the true random options if you want an extra injection of weirdness.

If you don't like the idea of a randomised background (even the filtered randoms look weird sometimes) you can also pick and choose the exact options you want. 
I've included comprehensive text and visual guides to explain all the choices you have as an optional download to make this as easy as possible.

Hopefully the excess of options I came up with has something for everyone's tastes, but if there's something you want to see just let me know and I'll do my best! ^-^ 

Goes great with Natural Color by Illuzio if you want a more pastel look overall.

Only requires SMAPI and Content Patcher, but I highly recommend an interface mod like Amaryn's (linked above) - this is the one I use in my screenshots.

Not compatible with other menu background mods, is compatible (and pairs well) with mods that only change the interface.

As always, an enormous thank you to my lovely datefriend seitanicbean for sacrificing most of their winter break helping create this monster with me.
