I made some tweaks and deleted duplicates, after combining the last file on the last page with what I currently had on my system.

I also noticed that the planet palettes application 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. :)

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.

Yeah, it does seem a little weird, but the color itself is basically right.  For reference, this is what a rock made entirely of olivine (dunite) looks like (my own find).

► Show Spoiler


A big portion of the mantles of silicate planets is made of this stuff, and it can be brought to the surface by tectonic processes, so it can cover large areas of the surface.  This rock came from an entire mountain made of it.  In the presence of oxygen it gets an orange coating to it though, so the mountain itself is orange instead of green.  But on a desert planet with no oxygen in the air?  Maybe it's not that unrealistic.

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

It is intentional artistic license when some of us add less realistic colors. ;)

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

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

Finally found an example of a "Contrast colors 5" world to do a before and after comparison:

I don't have HIP 56078 in my catalog, but could you go into the editor with this planet selected, check what its SurfStyle is, and see which StyleRange in your palette that value falls into?

Julian, its surface style is 0.914, but I'm don't know what to do with that other step, I'm very new at making palletes.
