Re-entry discoloration/scorching mod?

Something I've always felt that's been missing from KSP since the implementation of Re-entry effects, is the lack blackening/scorching/discoloration resulting from re-entry heating. 

Seen here on the Apollo 11 capsule after splashdown:

So I'm just wondering; is there a mod (WIP or otherwise) that provides that visual effect?

Not sure if it is a mod I have installed or if it's stock, but my heat shields turn black as they deplete alblator. Perhaps look at their .cfgs to see how that is handled, you might be able to implement it on other parts. Just going to guess, it may require alternate textures.

i think that may be a mod, because i've never had the heatshields change color in my games. and unfortunately i no nothing about how to create mods :confused:

Hmm, damn, I'm sorry I can't tell you which one it is specifically, I've got about 200 mods installed at the moment. I'm guessing it would be something like firespitter or bd armoury though, they contain modules to add animations to parts.
