Have you ever been bothered by absolutely unrealistic approach of Factorio to the look of ores? Did you cry in the corner because the Internet is laughing at us?
THIS TIME IS FINALLY OVER! Ignorance of the devs about reality will no longer be an obstacle to making your dreams come true.
Now, you can fill your eye sockets with the entirely new experience of correct ore colors.

Fixing map preview

This mod should update the map after every update that may change color of some ores.
However, there may be situations when the map stays outdated, e.g. after disabling this mod.
To fix that, simply paste this command to the game chat:

/c game.forces.player.rechart()
