In this case, Jupiter has a halo ring, a main ring, and two gossamer rings, Saturn has rings lettered A-G in order of when they were discovered, Uranus has most of its rings named after Greek letters, and Neptune has the Galle, LeVerrier, Lassel, Arago, and Adams rings. At the very least, Jupiter's rings would be retextured so that its halo and main rings are slightly more visible, and Neptune's Galle, Lassel, and Arago rings are added and are also slightly more visible.

I was curious about, I reminded the 3d clouds development blog, and I was curious about the gas giants appearance, how do they would look?

Thanks a lot for all this work !
 In your blog you say you have to work on other stuff, could you tell us what's your next target please? 3D clouds ?

I still think Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune's ring textures need to be updated so that they look more elaborate and slightly more visible.

SpaceEngine is all about realism not about preferences. The real rings actually look like that. Is not the most photogenic image we have in mind but it is the way it is. In fact this (in my opinion) is a great feature of SE; you can really learn on our missconceptions about space just by playing around in your computer and then wonder why we are so fixated for certain expectations we have about reality.

Then how come Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune have more elaborate rings in Celestia Origin?

Celestia Origin is nothing to do with Space Engine - why they decided to make rings look a certain way is up to them. They're done realistically in SE though.

Celestia Origin is less realistic and its lighting is much simpler.

Celestia Origin's rings are incorrect.

I found glitch for volumetric rings effects observing from outside rings:

The dude that is front of the ice rock, is a Moon right? If so, this should not happen, take in count that they're in development yet (the rings).

Depth in SE is broken atm. To be honest I'm not sure it's gonna be fixed in a long time.

it's acknowledged in the blog post presenting the beta rings that is part of the current known limitations:

Known issues and limitations
There are a few issues and limitations with the new rings currently; they are still in beta, after all. Some of those issues/limitations were listed in the post above. A few additional issues to be aware of:
[*]Moons orbiting inside the rings only sort correctly with the rings when looking away from the parent planet; when looking toward the planet, the moon will render in front of the rings.
