That's something I have wanted to do, but not in high enough priority to do so far ;-)
Thanks for selecting the colours.

Note that I'm not very fond of comical alien ruleset nations in general. They're just somehing I could quickly invent to be used instead of default nations (default nations were even worse in alien ruleset)

I like nations to have particular colours associated with them (for borders, etc), especially if they have distinct traits; it adds to their character and the general atmosphere, and you can have different shades for normal players vs barbarians (dark colours), etc.

Clearly impractical for our huge default nation set, but the set of nations in the Alien World ruleset is small enough that this would be practical.

In file #16384 (woo) I put an example patch. I didn't think about the colours terribly hard (although IIRC they are picked from the carefully-distinguishable set added in bug #19778), so I'm not wedded to them.

However, I leave the decision to cazfi since it's his ruleset; feel free to Wont Do.
