Fewer colors in SU 2016?


The colors palette in the materials window seems to have shrunk with SU 2016. I count 106 colors in the new version, but there were 308 in SU 2015. Can anyone explain why the palette was cut by two-thirds?


much higher quality images are used so I ‘guess’ they needed to keep the size of the installer down…

I moved copies for some of the ‘old’ materials into my User/…/Materials folder with a modified name e.g. Bricks >> v15_Bricks…

It’s worth prepending all the filenames to avoid name clashes as well…
