New weather icons added in #5065 are "samey" and hard to distinguish from each other

      Description

      w/r/t https://github.com/jenkinsci/jenkins/pull/5065

      I appreciate all of the new icons, but the new weather icons are significantly more difficult to differentiate at a glance than the old weather icons, since they're all the same color.  Apart from fixing all of our builds (who's got time for that), would it be possible to add some color variation (preferred), or at least have an option to re-enable the old icons?  Maybe make the sun yellow again and the clouds light gray?

      Example:

            As there hasn't been much movement on this I have created a theme for the Simple Theme Plugin which will replace the blue icons with some which have more colour.

            Wouldn't it be better for all if you can file such a change as PR for Jenkins core?

            Amit Dar fairly simple to do:
            Copy the contents of this file:

            https://raw.githubusercontent.com/APEdevelopment/jenkins-colour-weather-icons/main/src/jenkins-colour-weather-icons.css

            Then on the Jenkins machine go to the "Manage Jenkins -> Configure System" page and under the "Theme elements" section add an "Extra CSS" section and paste the contents of the file into the box (requires that the Simple Theme Plugin is installed).

            thanks APE, but I think you are missing the png file in your explanation... isn't it required for this to work?
