RSC 7352-193-3-173-101 10 is the greenest Titan I've run across.
The orange tornadoes, large blackened moon & blue cyro-volcanoes are nice additions I feel.

COLORFUL WORLDS: PLANTS ON OTHER PLANETS. What would the alien plants look like on SE terran planets while utilizing sunlight for energy? They would use different photosynthetic pigments like chlorophylls, carotenoids, anthocyanids, and phycobilins. The plant scientists generally regard the wavelengths of between 0.380-0.780 microns as the region of "Photosynthetically Active Radiation" (PAR). The plants would absorb certain wavelengths from blue to red under spectral types of main sequence stars.

Blue-Purple Plants with A-type star, on HIP 17325 7, using Chlorophyll a, Bacteriorhodopsin & Retinal. ~0.4 microns

Blue-Green Plants with F-type star, on HIP 26879 4.4, using Chlorophyll a & b, Anthocyanins & Carotenoids. 0.3-0.5 microns

Green Plants with G-type star, on Earth, using Chlorophyll a, b & c, Carotenoids & Phycobilins. 0.4-0.6 microns

Red-Yellow Plants with K-type star, on HIP 80043 3, using Chlorophyll a, b & c, Carotenoids & Phycobilins. 0.5-0.7 microns

Black-Red Plants with M-type star, on HIP 44295 4, using Chlorophyll d, e & f, Bacteriochlorophyll & Melanin. 0.7-0.9 microns

Fantastic input and info skywalker66. I can't believe I never made the connection that this was implemented already. On my way now to explore different star types and see the corresponding flora colorations! I am certain even "living rocks", as a hypothetical life-form, would behave similarly, absorbing and reflecting the same wave lengths of light you have noted. Crystal structures would be obviously utilizing the suns radiation in some form of energy conversion the same way vegetative material we are familiar with does here on Earth. It makes me wonder if other people have seen textures of "plants" on the Oceanias with life, all over the sea floor... I'm honestly too scared to dive deep underwater in Space Engine, I get the creeps. Kinda like how others say Black Holes give them the heebee-geebees. lol

I am unlucky, both diving deep underwater and black holes are creepy in my opinion  :)
Space is too big to understand, so do not try to understand.

Black holes aren't creepy!  They're just overly cuddly.

A lot of people seem to report senses of fear and unease when using SE, I don't experience it even in VR :(
Only time I have ever experienced unease similar to what people describe was when I drove through the foothills and mini-mountains of West Virginia and there was nothing around me except for dark valleys and a bright starry sky.

Beautiful Terra I found, RS 8474-944-5-16668-958 8. 2nd picture is a view from a beach. 3rd beach is a Strait leading to a much greater version of the great lakes. 4th photo is that much greater lake.

That sounds amazing. :)  The closest thing for me was probably kayaking through a dense fog on a perfectly calm day.  Reminded a lot of flying through galactic voids in Space Engine without boosting the magnitude limit -- just all alone in a vast isolation with zero points of reference.
