What about making another model for minineptunes (3 - 5 earth masses water planet with a hydrogen layer). Instead of the same cloud look as gas/ice giants. I suppose it should look like a cloudy layer more or less similar to Venus' clouds. I mean a sort of a foggy grey sphere wrapped around the water planet. As you might already know, gaseous/water worlds form at the farther part of the protoplanetary disk, where ices, H2 and He are located. If there are no large bodies, giants can travel closer to a star and when they do it way too much they simply get puffy. Their atmosphere looses mass because of intense solar winds. First, the hydrogen is lost and is helium. Later it all goes to the point of the complete loss of atmospheric layer. The only what is left behind is a dense superfluid water core (500 - 600 C) with silicate-some innards. This is a chtonian class planet. The point is that the atmosphere must be completely lost after getting to the methane stage of atmospheric evaporation. But some things I find are freaking out...
Coordinates: RS 10549-946-0-0-541 1, RS 9067-282-0-0-348 1, RS 0-4-995-1376-14-0-0-126 1. Is it a bug? It must be!
