About Colour:
....\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircrafts\Uh-1H\Cockpit\Scripts\materials.lua :

line #74:

fonts["font_general"] = {fontdescription["font_general"], 10, materials["GENERAL_INFO_GOLD"]}

can be changed to a RGB value like this '100% Red' example:

fonts["font_general"] = {fontdescription["font_general"], 10, {255, 0, 0, 255}}

Here is how to simply "calculate" the needed RGB numbers for a certain colour:

Or - instead of putting RGB values you can use a pre-defined "MATERIALS" RGB expression like it is done in the original line.

You find pre-defined colours starting at line 3 and you can add your own as long you keep the syntax intact.
