Customised HUD colours without XML changes

As you know, Elite has a pretty awful default orange HUD. Over the years, CMDRs found a way to alter the HUD via an XML modification.   However, the XML method has widespread unintended effects on many other important elements, such as the colour of ships on the radar, and pilot portraits.   This mod enables precise colour changes to almost any element on the HUD without the annoying side-effects of the XML method.   It also functions to change the cabin lighting to any colour, or even bi-colour if you prefer. We've also dimmed some of the dashboard lights that shine directly in your face, to reduce eye fatigue.
