Dark (grey and yellow on black) color scheme based on on torte.vim
([vimscript #111][1]), motus.vim ([vimscript #1393][2]) and
metacosm.vim ([vimscript #985][3]).

Designed for gvim to be used with vim plugins for KRL ([vimscript #5344][4])
and Rapid ([vimscript #5348][5]). Should work fine on console as well.
It started as a copy of torte.vim and drifted away more and more.

tortus.vim gets quiet colorful.
If it's too colorful for you try tortusless.vim.

See github for screenshots.

Credits goes to Thorsten Maerz, Sergei Matusevich and Robert Melton.

## install details
install details
Unzip and copy tortus.vim and tortusless.vim to `~/.vim/colors/`,
Windows users copy it to `c:\Users\<username>\vimfiles\colors\`

Put the following lines in your .vimrc for using this color scheme:

    colorscheme tortus " or tortusless " a bit less aggressive version

If you use this color scheme with krl.vim or rapid.vim >=1.3.0 and <2.0.0 put

    let g:krlNoHighLink=1
    let g:rapidNoHighLink=1

in .vimrc as well.
