Abstract: A large project for the computation of stellar tracks and isochrones covering an extended region of the Z-Y plane has been undertaken to allow people to model stellar populations for different helium enrichment values. TP-AGB computations are included with variable molecular opacities adopting low-temperature opacities properly evaluated for the chemical mixtures of evolving TP-AGB models, instead of usual scaled-solar ones. We evaluate the effects of a significant helium enhancement on bolometric corrections and Teff-colour relations.
