Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I always hated the original colors of the chess pieces, so I decided to find a way to change them. ;D I think these are much prettier.

This is a default replacement, so all chess pieces will look like this regardless of the chess board you're using. To install, place the file in your downloads. To uninstall and revert to the original chess piece colors, just remove the file from your downloads. Don't use another file that default replaces the chess piece colors at the same time. Although, I don't think I've actually seen any before. xD

Speaking of that, though, feel free to use my file as a base and upload your own version. Just send some credit my way. =D
