Not sure if this has been posted or not, but here's a thread for everyone to share their custom planet palettes. :) You can either paste them in code boxes or upload them as palette.cfg's.

Old thread from the old forum.

To install palette.cfg's that have been posted on this thread, go into your Addons folder. If the "textures" folder inside does not exist, create it. Now go into that, and create a folder named "common", if it does not exist. The palette.cfg will go into that folder. So in the end, the file structure/location looks like this: "<spaceengine>\addons\textures\common\pallete.cfg". :)

Anyways, here my modified version of a huge palette.cfg compiled by Toty on the old forum. I tried to remove duplicates from each planet class, but if you spot one feel free to post about it here or upload your fix. :) (Personal preference, I don't mind three different planet classes using the same color palette, but several duplicates for one planet class is what I aimed to remove. :) )

Finally, share your creations! :D

Once you share your creations, I will add a direct link to your post to this OP for better visibility. Let me know if I missed yours! :)

I highly recommend using the Planet Palettes utility, created by SolarLiner, found here (Important: Click on the 2nd download link, the one that says "Planets Palette v0.972 Windows", NOT the "click once installer" thingy!). However it was designed for 0.971/0.972, with 0.971's folder structure. But I manually created a SpaceEngine 0.98>textures>common directory, and SpaceEngine doesn't crash (for me anyway) since it won't try to read a textures folder in the root SE folder. :) (Note: The software requires .NET Framework 4.0, available here.)

Another drawback to the utility is that "StyleRange" only goes to two places past the decimal point ("StyleRange (0.91, 0.93)", for example), so if you see multiple StyleRanges displaying (0.10, 0.10), just add a 5 to the end of the second number, and then add another 5 to the end of the first number on the next StyleRange, like so:

// Planet Color Example 1
Palette
{
 ...
 StyleRange (0.10, 0.10)
 ...
}

// Planet Color Example 2
Palette
{
 ...
 StyleRange (0.10, 0.11)
 ...
}

Turns into:
// Planet Color Example 1
Palette
{
 ...
 StyleRange (0.10, 0.105)
 ...
}

// Planet Color Example 2
Palette
{
 ...
 StyleRange (0.105, 0.11)
 ...
}


Important: The final drawback of the application is that it has a habit of resetting some parameters to 0.00 on all four columns. It is a good idea to make backups of palette files before running them through the planet palettes app, so if a parameter gets reset, you can just copy and paste the backed up data onto the new file.

I just created a script to check for duplicates in the config file (programming script, not SE script). As it turns out, there are three cases of exact duplicates. Here they are:
BrownDwarf      (0.75, 0.79)    (0.83, 0.88)    (0.92, 0.96)
BrownDwarf      (0.79, 0.83)    (0.88, 0.92)    (0.96, 1.00)
Terra           (0.87, 0.89)    (0.95, 0.97)

(the first entry is the palette class, and the consecutive numbers are its style ranges)

There are also some palettes that are not exactly equal, but have very similar color scheme. Some might be intentional, but it's still worth checking them out. Here I list some of them, ordered from the most similar and excluding ocean palettes:
Titan           (0.865, 0.87)   (0.91, 0.915)   (0.96, 0.965)
Desert          (0.84, 0.85)    (0.90, 0.91)
Titan           (0.655, 0.66)   (0.66, 0.67)
Titan           (0.06, 0.065)   (0.23, 0.235)
IceWorld        (0.18, 0.19)    (0.94, 0.95)
Titan           (0.00, 0.01)    (0.145, 0.15)
IceWorld        (0.25, 0.26)    (0.28, 0.29)
Terra           (0.74, 0.76)    (0.76, 0.79)
Selena          (0.93, 0.95)    (0.95, 0.96)
Oceania         (0.50, 0.60)    (0.60, 0.70)

I hope you find it useful. ;)

I wonder what is the StyleRange and what is the purpose of StyleRange ?

When you open the planet editor for a planet in space engine, you'll see "SurfStyle" and "OceanStyle". Those parameters tell what color set the planet or ocean should use.

So If i make a purple-ish set of colors, and set the Style range to (0.9,0.95), Ill get a purple planet with those colors if I move the "SurfStyle" slider to somewhere between 0.9 or 0.95 in the planet editor.

An important thing to note is that if a previous StyleRange was (0.8,0.85), the one after it must begin at the same number as that previous one. So StyleRanges should go like this: (0.8,0.85), (0.85,0.9), (0.9,0.95), etc.

Thats just the basics, IIRC. :)

Oh my god thanks you so much, I tested with the colors and I saw it's the same numbers, very USEFUL, THANKS SO MUCH Plutonian ^^


Sorry I forgot to tell you about the "red purple" planet. I tried to put the red purple (0.38 to 0.40), I don't see the real red purple :(

Plutonian I ask you for 8 differant colors on palette. Can you add the new colors ?
1 White, green and red planet
2 entirement green a little like Jool planet
3 White and green 
4 Red and white
5 Lilac white, dark and dark blue
6 Pink or fushia planet
7 Green and dark
8 Red blood and white a little like my planet called splendor (for palette there are no red blood and white :( )

I hope you like my beautiful colors (sorry I don't have the program for making news colors for palette)

Actually, the program is here: http://en.spaceengine.org/forum/17-2217-1 . Hope this helps. :)

Also I modified my OP to remove the spoiler tags, to make the link to the program for others. :)

hmmm well the programme is a bit complicated to me because it's needed to get net framework. (net framework, I don't know how D: )

but I prefer someone can make 8 new colors for me. :(

Just tested the new palettes. Wonderful.
As far as I see the issues StarStuff shown were already corrected.
This is a "must have" thing.

I have one question. Why selenas always have that terrible zones of poo color? This can't be corrected by the palette, I've already tried before. These areas are added above the script color. Why? What physical law says selena must have such thing?

The selenas are having randomized browning, a feature added by SpaceEngineer and announced on the old forums in the old 0.974 development thread.

Also, I finished adding Roswell's requests on Wednesday, but forgot to upload it. They have been added to IceGiants and GasGiants, as requested.

To install, download and/or copy the palette.cfg file into the addons>textures>common folder, and delete the cache folder from Space Engine's main folder. Designed for 0.980, but it might work with older versions of SE.

Here are the new colors themselves:

If you have the Planet Palettes application, the style ranges will adjust automatically. :)

Thanks for new version.

Nope, I'm afraid the duplicates are still there. Here I posted the name and color of the duplicates, instead of their ranges, since ranges could change with additional palettes (didn't think that through):
BrownDwarf
    Pink-black-grey colors | #423933
    Pink-black-grey colors | #91765A
    Pink-black-grey colors | #9B7B5E

Terra
    Rocky (DoctorOfSpace) | #28C1AF
    Rocky | #28B5BB

BrownDwarf
    Like hot gas giant (gray colors) | #C18668
    Like hot gas giant (gray colors) | #A77F61
    Like hot gas giant (gray colors) | #95795C

PlutonianEmpire, why the duplicates are still in the recent update? Are they actually intentional? Btw, you should update the palette config file in the OP, just my two cents.

Unfortunately, I never made a corrected version. I was simply running a programming script on the config file to find the duplicates.
