-> Documents -> CRE palettes and their uses

Hey Hey, its me GF_Kennon, and there is always a little confusion about editing the CRE pallets, the Pallets 0-3, most people say to leave them be, but if your smart, you can use them just as easy as me.

In example pallets (the ones from crateria) and numbering them, this way, you can use my details below to stay clear of breaking the HUD with random colours, as well as to edit the HUD colours



Pallet 0
