How do I change the background tab color? It's too subtle

Nice work, guys. :)
This actually gave me enough motivation to mess with the theme files myself..

Turns out I really liked the tab stretching effect.
Here's an example (even though this isn't a good use of this.. doesn't really fit the Soda theme) with modified hover and selected tabs:

Quite a beautiful gradient for a simple couple-of-pixels modification on the Soda theme!

These tab graphics vastly enhance the interface. It would be great if they were integrated into the main release so everyone would get the benefit.

It would be even better if there were a way to make the green line red when a tab contains unsaved edits.

I've got this problem too of course... But I can't seem to find directories within the Package directory and I can't find any images anywhere in my sublime directory. Maybe this has something to do with the fact I'm using sublime 3 instead of 2?

Can anybody give me some input on how to replace those images in sublime 3?

this looks great. i'd also like to see a solution for ST3.

Is there still no solution for this in ST3...? :-(

Simple solution for SublimeText 3 - change active tab title font color:

1) copy Theme - Default.sublime-package from /Packages folder to other place
2) rename file - add .zip extension and extract archive to some folder
3) find Default.sublime-theme file and open it in text editor
4) find // Tab Labels section
5) for each tab_label entry with selected attribute change "fg" color from "255, 255, 255" to e.g. "255, 216, 0"
6) save file and pack folder to Theme - Default.sublime-package.zip (be careful - don't create subfolder level)
7) remove .zip extension and put Theme - Default.sublime-package into /Packages folder (rename original file for backup purpose to e.g. Theme - Default.sublime-package.bak)
8) run SublimeText and enjoy!

Probably is possible to replace tab backgrounds (in archive Theme - Default.sublime-package.zip you can find all needed files), but it's embarrassing without documentation.
