The new paint feature is great! I think it looks nicer that it tints the wood, instead of completely changing the wood color to neon. But the tint appears over windows too, which I think look strange. The windows should be excluded from the color change.
I can already see the new crew chatter being implemented! :D
I like the new wood color (even the GUI looks nicer in that color), and I like the sky gradient. Clouds look better, I think coal looks nicer, and suspendium is mostly the same which I'm fine with. But the sky is still purple. Also, I think the dirt looks too red now. It should be more brown than anything.
Here's an example.
Also, trees could be more saturated imo, but I wouldn't mind some background variation with different colors. Pine trees maybe?
Also, the sky and clouds on the logo screen haven't been changed yet.
And fire could still be more saturated imo, and smoke from fires darker. Unless you're waiting for the smooth lighting update to make it look even better.
That's all I have to say for now, good update overall. This is just nitpicking. (Except for the sky thing, it's really bugging me.)
