Hey everyone 

 

as you may have noticed we do have a trend to build user interfaces to interact with more complex systems. The number of those will increas with the next release, at least by 2.

 

With that in mind I started looking at how UI's are build and I realized that they were colored by a redefined set of colors. once I got directed to that It was quite easy to see that it was in kind of a mess: Most of the colors taht were originally planned still have placeholders. I'd like to change that.

 

Now since have not the slightest experience in mixing up colors I'd like to turn this over to the public or someone who has an idea of whst he/she is doing (like guys that have made their own LCARS-Grapic)

 

Feel free to contribute here: https://docs.google....V3pkQnRQZ1RiRmc

 

For the Record: Any modification that we do on the color table will esentially render every UI and every 2D-Draw untested. So if we do change the color table some time might pass before we can show it ingame.

Hey Harry,

 

There are a few "lcars" color tables around the interwebz like these here: http://www.colorhunter.com/tag/lcars/1

 

I've found more in the past but i dont remember where. Also, have a look at will and ants maps, they contain a lot of nemesis style lcars with correct color scheming.
