  • Added custom color palettes for dota2hpbars with some color presets.

Chat command “-preset #” , where # is number from 0 to 5 will enable following:
0 will use palette from your config
1 will use standart palette
2 for bright experimental palette with different colors
3 uses LoL colors (blue, violet, red)
4 uses olive and sea shades
5 uses metal shades
6 simple RGB colors (enemy-ally-neutral)
7 simple CMY colors (enemy-ally-neutral)
It’s unnecessary to change anything or even have enabled dota2hpbars in config – they will adapt.
Enough to just write in chat “-preset #” with number, what can be done anytime in game

For customizing palette and for enabling this forever, need to write in config:
CustomBarColorsEnabled = true
CustomBarPresetNumber = 1
CustomBarFixedSides = true
CustomBarAllyPlayerColor_Hero = FF00FF00
CustomBarAllyPlayerColor_Unit = FF00FF80
CustomBarAllyPlayerColor_Struct = FF00FFFF
CustomBarEnemyPlayerColor_Hero = FFFF0080
CustomBarEnemyPlayerColor_Unit = FFFF00FF
CustomBarEnemyPlayerColor_Struct = FFFF00FF
CustomBarNeutralPlayerColor_Unit = FF6600FF

, where
CustomBarPresetNumber – from 0 to 5, and 0 will use full custom palette from config.
CustomBarFixedSides – makes colors fixed for Sentinel an Scourge instead of allying dependency.
Colors are used only with full custom palette and written as:
First FF number for intensity, RR red, GG green, BB blue. Numbers can be from 00 to FF each.

And, of course, enable them if disabled:
DotA2HPBars = true
