Dear PyMOL users,

I build 100 chains of polymer in a box. Residue number is different for every chain. Chain 1 has residue no. 1, chain 2 has residue no. 2 and so on. I want to color each chain differently.
So, I wrote a script which generates a pml file, and opening this pml file with PyMOL should color each chain differently.

##color.pml
load 128md_c.pdb
select 1, i. 1
color  1, i. 1
select 2, i. 2
color  2, i. 2
select 3, i. 3
color  3, i. 3
select 4, i. 4
color  4, i. 4
select 5, i. 5
color  5, i. 5
select 6, i. 6
color  6, i. 6
select 7, i. 7
...
...
color  125, i. 125
select 126, i. 126
color  126, i. 126
select 127, i. 127
color  127, i. 127
select 128, i. 128
color  128, i. 128

I have 128 chains.

What I find that mostly green or black dominates the coloring. 
While displaying color by the numeric code, what is the maximum no, after which the color repeats?
