Now anyway, it applies an enchantment glow to those blocks because of the armor.
I was thinking you could abuse that and make 16/17 enchantment glow textures with transparency of 50% and apply them to any block in game by attaching it to the block. Than the main idea is if you drop a dye onto block you want colored, it'd apply the enchantment glow of that colored dye onto the block of choice. This could eradicate creating 100+ colored textures. For things that aren't full block, you would have to make another enchantment glow for that specific block, but that is only like 128 textures all just one solid color that is transparent plus affecting all blocks in game. Imagine a colored anvil, a colored crafting table, a colored plank, and it would work with other mods as well except for full block colors on those mods.
I dunno, just a thought for people who make colored mods, might be an idea anyway.
