vim-colors-nobold is a collection of Vim color schemes, with "bold" attribute removed in GUI and terminal, but not in text console. I wasn't entirely happy with how fonts, which I use in Vim, looked when rendered in bold, so I decided to create modified versions of my favourite Vim color schemes, with "bold" attribute removed. At the same time, I didn't want new color schemes to look different in text console, compared to original color schemes.  In some cases, I also changed colors of some of the elements - for example, to make active and inactive status lines look different.

The collection is split into two parts:

* base:
  * Contains color schemes based on the 18 standard schemes shipped with Vim.
  * Requires standard Vim color schemes to be present locally.
* extra:
  * Contains additional color schemes, based on schemes created by Vim users.
  * Does not require original color schemes to be present locally. This is because "extra" color schemes include code from original scripts, with permission from their authors.
