Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - DoubleDust - 02-10-2019
Just finished gathering references for alternate colors for the elements - the list is viewable here. I'll go through it later and suggest colors for each in RGB format. I ran into a similar problem as Marvin - the pure elements are mostly silver metals, the salts are mostly white powders and the ores are mostly gray rocks, but with enough exceptions to add a bit of variety. Some of the ores have cool shapes too. RE: Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - Marvin Herbold - 02-10-2019
Thanks for doing this! When I try to open the doc up it says I need to ask for permission, and I clicked on the button to do so. I think you need to go into sharing settings for that doc and make it public so anyone can view it without asking for permission. RE: Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - DoubleDust - 02-10-2019
Done - first post has been updated with a working link. RE: Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - DoubleDust - 02-17-2019
Still working through the list, but here's my first set of recommendations in (r,g,b) format. From these I'd recommend using the ore colours for aluminum, antimony and copper. I recommend salt colours for chromium and cobalt. Aluminum Metal: Base: (128,128,128) Specular: (224,224,224) Ore: Base: (165,42,42) Specular: (255,128,0) Salt: Base: (224,224,224) Specular: (255,255,255) Antimony Metal: Base: (96,96,96) Specular: (224,224,224) Ore: Base: (96,96,96) Specular: (160,160, 160) Salt: Base: (224,224,224) Specular: (255,255,255) Chromium Metal: Base: (128,128,128) Specular: (224,224,224) Ore: Base: (96,96,96) Specular: (192,192,192) Salt: Base: (102,0,255) Specular: (204,153,255) Cobalt Metal: Base: (126,131,126) Specular: (224,230,224) Ore: Base: (178,73,46) Specular: (199,139,117) Salt: Base: (51,153,255) Specular: (153,204,255) Copper Metal: Base: (255,128,0) Specular: (255,204,153) Ore: Base: (0,102,51) Specular: (0,153,76) Salt: Base: (0,204,102) Specular: (0,255,128) RE: Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - Marvin Herbold - 02-19-2019
I'll be updating all of the colors when the rest of them are done. Looking forward to it! RE: Alternate Color Scheme for Elements - DoubleDust - 04-07-2019
Here's the completed list, with my personal recommendations marked by asterisks. Sorry for taking so long. It may also be possible to differentiate ores by giving them unique shapes (like the long rods of stibnite, magnetite's octahedrons, etc.) Hope this helps!

I'll be updating the colors when the SF remake projects gets going again. I am taking a short break now to give full attention to the big contract that my company just won.
