Could you please upload or describe pallete for buildings? I want to make some plugins with buildings and I think it's mindless without agreement with genuine palette.

You do not have to use a color palette.
TheoTown use a 32 bit graphics engine. So you can use alle colors ant transparency.
The box label said, "Requires Windows 10 or better.", so I bought an Amiga Computer.

But without palette it may looking ugly. You can see that in neighbour forum, where people shows mods which made by themselves. In pixelart, it's usual to use one palette for all project.

That is the reason why we do not use pure pixelart.
I create most of the buildings with a mixture of pixelart, drawing tools, textures and special effects functions.

Most the buildings in the plugin forum, where users can show their own houses, are "ugly" because the user are not trained to draw buildings.
It is not a matter of having a color palette or not. It is a matter of drawing skills and training.
I am doing pixel art graphics since 1987 :wink: , but I am still learning with every new building.

Thank you for so explainable answer :)
After your answer, I only want to say that all the graphics looks in one style and I cannot explain that else if was created with using the common palette.

Well, I used random mixture of colours too, so it gives me a freedom of imagination and creativity on creating a building
