Ships I made for Astervoid 2000 by Mad Capacity.
Total colour count is technically more than 78, but that is the unique count. Each ship has 16 colours including transparency.

I like that approach, yeah. It can help to nicely separate volumes in greebly ships. It is not unique to DP/DDP though and they are not the first games that used it either.
These look great!
Have you adopted the (Do)DonPachi approach to slightly highlighted edges on big ships? :D
Good stuff. Terrific palette for a dark deep space environment.
I like them, because they look not flat, but solid and it feels like they are really floating in deep dark space.
Really nicely detailed!
