The colouring could be extended to leapers with a max. coordinate of 3, using intermediate colours, should you wish to add them for even more complexity! These would be magenta for 3:1:0, orange-red for 3:1:1, mauve for 3:2:0, brown for 3:2:1, gold for 3:2:2, turquoise for 3:3:1, lime for 3:3:2. An article of mine suggesting names for 3d oblique leapers has been submited and should appear in the next few weeks.
