Modifying existing game object textures

Using Gimp we can modify texture files that our game object materials rely on to achieve different colors and effects.

After opening an existing texture you wish to change the color of, click Image > Mode > Grayscale.

Last, click File > Export As and choose PNG from the file types.

Now we can use the color picker in unity to modify the color.

This works best with textures that have 1 color, or a color and grey to black accents.

Rinse and repeat for all of the other yellow materials in our project.

Now our scene is filled with grey assets which we can modify to our hearts content using the color picker right on the materials.

That’s all I got for this one folks.
