Hey all! I made this simple XML tuning mod a while back and figured some other people might appreciate it.

I was always underwhelmed by the purple color of the needs bars for vampires, then mermaids came along and I was equally disappointed with the dark blue motives they have. So, I dug around and found that these are pretty easy to change! Now, vampires will have motives that are a dark blood-red and mermaids will have ones that are more of a cerulean blue. It's entirely for aesthetic appeal, but nonetheless, enjoy!

(P.S. This will NOT change the names of the special Thirst/Hydration motives. That is from another mod entirely!)

This mod makes changes to the Motive_0xf8d47557a2e45d9e XML file from gameplaydata.package and will conflict with any other mod that changes the same resource. I haven't seen any mods that alter this file, and have yet to experience any conflicts in testing.

Was this updated for the Sulani mermaids? I noticed the motives in the picture doesn't say Hydration for mermaids.

Small but welcome change if you think some races did not have enough differences over normal Sims.
