Newbie needing some help on a preset

I've finally joined the ranks of the XH-A1 owners. I just got mine, and started testing the various presets from the custom preset library. As a newbie to this level of customization, it's going to take me some time before I'm ready to start seriously tweaking individual settings.

In the meantime, I'm looking for something that is in-between Preset #1 (the default setting) and the latest VIVIDRGB setting. I like the later, particularly outside when it's sunny. However, when it's cloudy or when I'm indoors, it's a bit too vibrant (such that the colors aren't true enough in a way that is too noticeable). If Preset #1 is 1 on a scale of 10, and VIVIDRGB is 10, I'm looking for something closer to 7 or 7.5. Can someone give me some advice on how to tone down VIVIDRGB in this way?

I tried to download it, but the link is no longer working. Do you know somewhere else I can find it?

The settings are there in the post. Why not just manually apply them?

I just added this preset manually. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Thanks!
