I wanted to keep it subtle. Are you using ReShade by any chance?

New planet classification

That depends on whether or not you consider tholins to be biological molecules, because whenever you see red or brown colors on an ice world, that's usually what you're looking at.

Gameplay concept

The game set will be in a real time. Building a large city from scratch takes decades. So it will not be possible in SE. Wait a minute, didn't you say that you wanted nanotechnology to be part of humanity's technological capabilities? If the player announces that a planet is suitable for colonizati...

I've also modified the blue desert color in the "Contrast colors 5" palette so that it looks less like water when viewed from space:

I've modified palette.cfg so that the "olivine mountains" styles of desert planets have less saturated greens:

I don't know! This is probably going to take someone who actually knows how to write GLSL.

Rodrigos Terrain & Clouds Mod

I know Rodrigo can't do it himself, though, but do I wish in the near future there could be several versions of the various landforms, like there is now for hills. It might be possible to add code to Rodrigo's mod that generates an invisible fractal noise pattern over an entire world's surface, and...

Rodrigos Terrain & Clouds Mod

Rodrigo, the technique you're using to generate rivers now looks very interesting, but sometimes it becomes obvious that one riverbank has rounded terrain, and the opposite bank has ridged terrain. They're like two halves of a mould.

Yes, but even the sample you have doesn't have as saturated of a green as some of these palettes do.

Do the green colors on the "olivine mountains" textures for desert planets need to be toned down? It looks weird to see this much green on a planet that doesn't have life.

Qr Bbpost Will the new raymarched nebulae still allow you to use cubemaps to define the shapes of catalog nebulae?

No, they are completely procedural.

So does that mean catalog nebulae will still consist of sprite particles in 0.9.8.1?

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

Will the new raymarched nebulae still allow you to use cubemaps to define the shapes of catalog nebulae? I realized from looking at LifeLive42's "Stellar" video that dust clouds in galaxies are still using sprite rendering. Are they going to be changed to raymarching in 0.9.8.1, or will th...

I don't like "jovian" and "neptunian", because they are adjectives. This will make my grammar code even more complicated. And then we must change "terra" to "terrestrial" as well as and all other classes. In Russian, is it possible to use the same noun for &q...
