Evolife colours


EvolifeColourNames = ['grey', 'black', 'white', 'blue', 'red', 'yellow', 'brown', 'blue02', 'pink', 'lightblue',
            'green', 'green1', 'green2', 'green3', 'green4', 'green5', 'green6', 'green7', 'green8', 'green9', 'green10', 'green11', # 21
            'red0', 'red1', 'red2', 'red3', 'red4', 'red5', 'red6', 'red7', 'red8', 'red9', 'red10', 'red11', # 33

These colours are displayed vertically as small coloured dots, to the right, on the Evolife window. They can be designated by their name or their rank in the list. The function:

Shade(x, BaseColour='green', Min=0, Max=1, darkToLight=True, invisible='white')

returns gradual colours in the greens, the reds or the blues, depending on the value of x between Min and Max.
