I mentioned this during the last update of ldconfig.ldr, but unfortunately did not receive an answer.

There have been a significant amount of changes to standard colors last time the file was updated, and I'm wondering if all of these changes were intentional. For instance. The color tan (19) has become very gray-looking:

Previously (#F4DC96):

Latest (B0A06F):

The colors are now less cartoon-like, which is good for realism, but not as good for distinguishing colors in building instructions.

Sure. The changes have been documented here:

The new train-wheels (38340) are listed at BL as Black, however it is a different black than the ABS Bricks, IMOH it tends to be slightly grayish or even dark brownish. It is a duller material.

Thanks. That explains from where this change comes, but the reason seems to be "Colours were compared with Ryan Howerter colour list.". Does that mean that wherever a color deviated from their list, the LDraw color was simply changed? That seems to have been a rather significant impact. Going back to tan (19) as an example, the previous color seems more accurate when you look at parts in this color.

228 - Satin White
223 - Satin Trans-Light Blue
224 - Satin Trans-Dark Pink
222 - Glitter Trans-Orange

Are these the colors we are looking for?

Yes, I think you're right. But these are the Bricklink numbers. Why should we use them when we know the correct TLG numbers?
228 - Satin White,  seems to be a Bricklink invention. It is not present in Ryan's Colorlist.


We are also missing some Transparent Rubber colours:
This part, 21987/35583
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...138630#T=C
is made in:
Rubber trans bright green
Rubber trans light blue
Rubber trans red
None of these are in ldconfig.
IMHO, Lasse is right.

Ryan's list is not flawless.

Edit:
Maybe it is. ldconfig is not flawless.
Could you make two new images, using the same rendering engine, but with only different rgb values?

Even better. I can use them both in the same image by modifying my local ldconfig.ldr:

Before I dive into the new rubber colors here's my proposal for the new colors:
