Color Palettes (Color Palette Store? Color Combo suggestions)

Need opinions and hope this topic might start conversation.

I have been obsessing about color palettes lately and wondering if there are any stores that highlight building materials and specific potential color palettes. If not, would this be a store of interest to the community?

I love all the colors, and all my builds go with an all the colors palette; so it was easier for me to find pre-made palettes and then try to match boundless colors to those palettes. I’d love to see others’ favorite color combos!

Extra brainstorm: would a color palette contest be of interest? ie. choose a palette of x colors for a build that highlights… color!

Just thoughts. (shared impulsively!! :crazy_face:)

Extra extra: I love this community. I lurk in the forums and rush around in-game with my to-do lists, pretty much a loner in game… but I see and appreciate the amazing community that plays boundless together (and shares so much knowledge in these forums, and etc):heavy_heart_exclamation:

I recently was looking up color palettes actually. Wanted to generate a feeling of luxury in my shop and wanted to see what colors Google recommended. The first palate that came up was basically the one I already had (neutral subdued tones of sepia/mustard).

But generally - I’m interested in color theory and would be down to help create a palate showcase or something. Like an ikea showroom, or color design/boundless interiors. Idk

I’ll be following this one. I feel color blind these daze. Sometimes I think it’s the lighting of certain atmospheres… I dunno but a shop set up with color pallet examples would be kudos! Like farm school…

That would be a lot of fun! I would love to work on that project with you! Have you discovered the internet palette generators? I have been having fun with those. Might combine it with the internet art piece name generator and then develop pallets based on the weird names I get. My last randomly generated art piece titles were: 1) Nun Desecrating a Staircase; 2) Mind-Bending Idealism; 3) Torqued Demon of Desire. I could work with those! LOL (actually, this could be worked into a palette contest).

When talking about color, and when I first started playing the game I built a huge car called the galaxy cruiser it was my store. It was very bright and colorful basically wood. Then I moved rebuilt but not a colorful palette and I have to say I did not have near as many sales. So my input in color: the more colorful and warm a place is the more money you will make at your store! I spend more in a bright cheerful environment versus a dark one.

I really like the heart of the earth palette and the one below it.

From looking at your profile pic of that painting…were you the one that does all of those really crazy awesome paintings of the home worlds? I remember seeing one quite a long time ago of possibly biitulas colors I think it was?

This is good information! I like the idea of using pallets to hone my skills at combining and thinking about color combos. Pretty much all my builds use a rainbow theme, with as many of the colors as I can find :crazy_face: All the colors make me super happy, but I would also like to get more intentional and try to work with more limited palettes to create “moods”.

Yep. LOL. That was me. I haven’t painted through COVID for some reason… but boundless has been a great creative outlet. :slight_smile: I made a creation video of the Biitula painting back in 2018.
