Thank you! Color palette correct now. I still have the issue with my home grown races being not valid. Do you have any idea there? They worked well before the installation.
Did you make them with any other mods active? They should work. "unable to validate" ... "unknown appearance" when the game loads??? this error is down to not having a race appearance, which is odd if you made your factions with the vanilla assets.
I know one thing, they will not be of any use in GST, you will have to remake them using one of the GST Races as a base. Reason for this is down to the way I have built the GST Races, they have custom starting systems, Traits and Tech trees that make them far more powerfull than the default races. if you use a faction that is not created with GST active they will be well under par
Check your mod folder, make sure you have Star Trek - Colors mod in there. It required.
It should look like this:-
