Where can I find the latest, most complete list of LDraw colors? I've noticed that the different editors do not share one common list.

Here are some (incomplete) lists I've found:

http://www.ldraw.org/article/547.html
LDConfig.ldr
lg_colors.lst

Thanks.

 The only official source of LDraw colors is LDConfig.ldr. Anything that isn’t in line with that list is out of date or not official.
Indeed you are correct.

There are a few discrepencies however:

334 lg_gold_chrome
998 lg_medium_orange
999 lg_undefined

These are missing from LDConfig.ldr.

334 is present in LDConfig.ldr. The latest version can be found at http://www.ldraw.org/article/547.html and was also distributed with parts update 2017-01.

Oops! I forgot that 334 was misnamed in LGEO, but that it was later fixed.

I did notice however that LDCad has an color 382 (and possibly others that I did not check for) which is not in LDConfig.ldr.

Not really. LDCad defaults (not a good idea imho) to give the possibility to use "dithered colors", not in LDConfig.ldr. To disable this, as it can be misleading (and clobbers colors palettes), Prefs -> Ldraw -> Calculate missing dithered -> disabled and Prefs -> Ldraw -> Calculate missing transparent -> disabled

I am creating scripts to switch back and forth between L3P, LDView and LDCad color palettes, and these dithered colors are causing me problems.
Remember about BrickLink Catalog
Exclamation  there already is a "sticky" thread in this forum which collects all color lists:

https://forums.ldraw.org/thread-305.html

please don't duplicate that thread here

LDCad seems to assign ldMat382 to parts in a model I created in MLCad. I don't understand why it does that, since I did not set this color manually.
