Introduction
Hello everyone.  I decided to modify the gradient values of the character generator hair colors.  Due to this, I was able to produce more realistic-looking hair color.
 
How to Install
Simply backup your current gradients.png file in the RPG Maker MV program folder.  Then import the new gradient file and name it gradients.png.

Very cool! This definitely looks a lot more natural than some of the default choices. I love the concept of swapping around different gradient sets to suit our particular projects.

I don't really dislike the default colors, but the ones you provided look way better! Keep it up.

Also, what are your terms of use?

These are REALLY nice. Thank you.

I was wondering if you could maybe do another one that has the basic colors like blonde, brunette, black, red, etc. But also has a couple fantasy colors like Blue, Green, Purple, White?

Thank you for your time.

Doesn't the real file name is "gradients.png" and is located in the Generator folder?

Yes, the actual filename is gradients.png, but I forgot the s and just left it be since I assumed it was easy to find out that they are the same.  So, yes, you're correct.

I apologize for any confusion. I'm looking for one that has a mix of both.

So, Blonde, Brunette, Redhead, White, Brown, Etc, but also has some Blue, Green, Purple, Etc.

Thank you for your time.

Making test maps is really illuminating when it comes to figuring out how the real maps should be. It's like the outline that one writes for the story before writing the actual story.
I am adamant about not having missable quests, which means having to write entirely new scenes at each plot progression that takes into account that time and events have passed since the quest could first be accepted while still having there be a quest to solve in the first place. It's worth every second.
Surprisingly useful and thought provoking
