    I would suggest (for us Lovecraft fans)
    • R'lyeh, forces of Cthulhu, primary Great Old One
    • Deep Ones, forces of Dagon, secondary/other G.O.O
    • forces of Nyarlathotep, global alien organization, primary Outer God
    • forces of Shub-Niggurath, secondary Outer God
    • forces of Yog-Sothoth
    • forces of Azathoth, all-powerful alien force
    • Shoggoths
    • Elder Things, primordial aliens

    cracks knuckles for spacey nerdiness, with friendly reminders from Drex's scheme (thanks mate ;) )

    So, what to add...

    If @Drex will allow it, I'd suggest looking at his space section for the alts to add to that what you have for the planets but Drex, must say it dude, you did a great job with adding alts for the specific examples, especially the solar system's planets;).

    But anyhow

    Planetary and Lunar systems
    -Pallas/Primary Asteroid Belt State
    -Juno/Secondary Asteroid Belt State
    -Vesta/Tertiary Asteroid Belt State
    -Minor Asteroid Belt State (Make the current one Other Major/named Asteroid Belt State)
    -Minor Moon of Jupiter/Primary Captured Asteroid
    -Minor Moon of Saturn
    -Minor Moon of Uranus
    -Minor Moon of Neptune
    -Primary Moon of Pluto/Secondary Captured Asteroid (Pluto can also have a secondary of Major Binary Planet, with Charon being Minor Binary Planet)
    -Asteroid Mining Colony
    -Primary Comet State
    -Secondary Comet State
    -Hot Jupiter/Tidally Locked world
    -Superearth
    -Carbon/Diamond Planet
    -Iron Planet/ Discarded planetary core

    Star Types

    -Sol/Generic Main Sequence Star
    -Dyson's Sphere/ Artificial Stellar Scale Structure
    -Orange Dwarf/Gliese 710/ Apocalypse Star
    -Sirius should be white and also as a White Dwarf (also if we make it Sirius B, that would work, Sirius A is a main sequence star like our sun)
    -Proxima Centauri should be alt'd with Very Old fuel burning star
    -Black Dwarf Star/Dead Star
    -Not sure on necessity for Barnard's star tbh
    -Brown Dwarf/Not quite a Star
    -Likewise unsure on Tau Ceti, besides it's similarity to the Sol
    -Neutron Stars/Extremely dense body
    -Pulsars/Magnetars
    -Black Hole (could even split this into two for Schwarzschild and Kerr black holes (the first is stationary, the second rotates)
    -White Hole

    Galaxies

    -Milky Way/Barred Spiral Galaxy
    -Messier 49/Elliptical Galaxy
    -Lenticular Galaxy/Cartwheel Galaxy
    -Spiral Galaxy/Pinwheel Galaxy
    -Large Magellanic Cloud/Major Dwarf Galaxy
    -Small Magellanic Cloud/Minor Dwarf Galaxy
    -Irregular Galaxy

    Larger Structures
    -Local Group/Minor Cluster
    -Virgo Cluster/Major Cluster
    -Laniakea Supercluster/Primary Supercluster
    -Secondary Supercluster
    -Primary Universe
    -Secondary Universe
    -Multiverse
    -The Beyond/Void

    @ST15RM I see a lovecraftian has joined us, I hope he isn't mad
    @Riley Uhr , you ain't blind, somehow the suggestive eyes have missed that important state ;)

    Only thing I can think to suggest is that make the Airbender and Firebender more distinct. After all, recall in the show the big colour of the fire nation is Red, so perhaps switch the Gerudos colour with them. Otherwise, nerd out :p

    I was hoping someone would notice that ^^

    Can't believe I forgot that, Caymans appears to be missing too. I'll have to add those in when I update Space and Sci-Fi/Fantasy

    Why wouldn't I allow it? IMO this colour scheme world is based on taking other's job and doing your own version, it's not like everyone copied the first original colour for England and had to ask for permission to use it, public dominion.
    IMO I'd use TOAST3R's solar system, it's more complete than mine, except for the alts.

    - Avian Aliens
    - Other Arthropod Aliens
    - Molluscoid Aliens
    - Plant Aliens
    - Fungal Aliens
    - Parasitic Aliens
    - Hive-minded Aliens
    - To'ul'h/Muuh/Other Aliens with an incompatible biochemistry
    - Droids/Other non-biological Aliens
    - Eosapiens/Na'vi/Other primitive Aliens
    - Transapient Aliens
    - Unbidden/Other Extracosmic entities

    Hehe,

    Anyhow, with Drex's suggestion to look at TOAST3R (tbh had forgotten XO had done the space section tbh)

    Here are some further suggestions, after I looked over TOAST3R

    -Vulcan/ Trans-Mercurian Object/Really close to star planet
    -Secondary Lunar base/far side of the moon/Research Station
    -ISS/Primary Space Station
    -Mir/Secondary Space Station
    -Earths twin/Mondas
    -Theia/Alderaan/Planetary remains
    -Haumea/Elliptical World

    @Crazy Boris : I am not as well-versed in fantasy or types of aliens as to make suggestions here.

    But I would add:

    - Homo erectus
    - non-Hominid Hominids (e.g. if a Hominid-like species develops from Platyrrhini)
    - Homo habilis

    And in the Space section, I would add:

    - far-left United Earth
    - far-right United Earth/Weltreich
    - Earth-in-exile on Mars
    - Earth-in-exile on Venus (e.g.: Earth was destroyed/apocalypse happened, and then we went into exile)
    - Earth-in-exile in Space
    - if the Mars colour is intended for an independent Mars, you should add at least a far-left and a far-right colour.

    @Crazy Boris , could you register an imgur account and upload your file there? Then, you can link it directly here. The same is possible with DeviantArt.

    So, the latest three sections are each way too long. I suggest partitioning them as follows:

    Space = Solar System / Extrasolar

    Scifi&Fantasy = Scifi / Fantasy

    Religion = Abrahamic Religions / Other Religions

    Also, thanks for listening to... apparently all of my suggestions.

    Also, in the Religion section, you should add:

    - other anti-Trinitarianism (below Arianism)
    - Manichaeism/Dualism
    - Atheism
    - Agnosticism
    - irreligion
    - Cult of Reason
    - Cult of the Supreme Being
    - modern "Animism"/Evolution Cult (something like Dawkins wants to spread - a belief in nature and evolution itself being the highest, without a deity involved)

    Just saw that on a youtube video. But it could well be that I am interpreting Dawkins wrong. If you want to state your own opinion, answer me in some religion thread in Chat or in a PM.

    The Languages Update

    This was kind of a pain to do. Its not easy to find 100 shades of the same color that are different enough to not fade into each other but similar enough to be clearly related (looking at you, Austronesian, Indo-European, and Niger-Congo families).

    Up next: The Political Supplements! Ideologies, Political Systems, and Economic Systems!

    Alright, so the political and environmental supplements are done! (I also added Sanskrit to the languages section because I somehow forgot it and overhauled the Americas)

    We're not quite done, since the main part of THICC will be getting some more additions, courtesy of @ML8991, but, THICC will probably be 100% done within a few days. Until then, Here is the full THICC 1.0!

    @Crazy Boris ... would you allow me to upload this scheme to my imgur account or to my DeviantArt? So that we are even safer?

    Or do you have a DeviantArt account?

    That's another lovely addition.

    On the Ideologies subsection, you should add:

    - All non-regional varieties on this list
    and, if not on this list:
    - Left-wing technocracy
    - centrist/apolitical technocracy
    - right-wing/fascist technocracy
    - timocracy
    - plutocracy (rule of the rich)
    - kakistocracy (rule of the worst)
    - nom-communist Ergatocracy
    - Objectivism to Anarcho-Capitalism
