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. :) )

I highly recommend using the Planet Palettes utility, created by SolarLiner, found here. 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. :)

The only other 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)
 ...
}


Anyways, share your creations! :D

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. :(
