Ooh, well done!

Why is it too late to use for you?

Because I already have all the tiles set, can't use a new palette now can I?

Well, from the tiles I can see, light red could be changed to a reddish orange. This would certainly improve the lava tiles and almost everywhere else it is as a shading, blending in with red okay.

Brown could also be changed to a lighter (or darker) variant without causing much trouble.

The darkest shade of blue could be made lighter, since often it is used as a shade.

Just a thought...

Isn't there already a patch for this? I'm sure there was.

I was just scanning down the Keen2 forum, no colour patch there, unless it was not put on the forum.
