As you might know we will be moving to the new palette of block colors with the next big release!
I made a few comparison shots in @the-moebius’s workshop: * cough *
Firstly I’m really happy about the move to that new palette and that the stacking issue will be a thing of the past.
But I’m a bit worried about the conversion of some block colors that look a lot different then their live server counterparts.
Homeworld’s Twisted Wood & Elopor’s Lustrous Wood: The saturation took a big increase and it looks really orange now. Homeworld’s Twisted & Lustrous used to work really well together, now they clash.
Homeworld’s Igneous Rock & Nasharil’s Metamorphic Rock: These blocks went from purple to dark grey. I don’t think it will mess a lot with current color combinations, I’m just really sad that the purple is gone.
Homeworld’s Sedimentary Rock: The saturation went down a lot and it lost it’s sandstone appeal, almost looks like metamorphic rock now.
I know, I know, I know. It will not matter at all with 1.0 and of course we can get the colors we want from the new planets. But it will be a lot of work the replace a complete set of materials in a big build, just to fix a previously working color set.
So my questions are:
Will this be looked at again before it goes live?
- Has anyone else found block color conversions that will screw up their builds?
