Pick a color
« on: March 08, 2009, 12:39:53 am »



This thing is purple. It can be something else. Vote. Most popular color wins.

Update: Voting is closed. See this post for the result.

I like purple. Looks like an energy burst. What is it?

It's the projectile of Vindicator's second weapon, and its explosion, at max zoom level.

Purple. (yeah, so I like it the way it is Tongue)

Still, it might be weird having the Vindicator fight Thraddash ships with both having projectiles that look the same Lips Sealed

Purple is an acceptable answer, though kind of boring.



Black.

Not viable. Black would be black in the way that the Kohr-Ah Marauder is black. Dark grey, and with a lot of gloss. I can't do that with such a tiny projectile and have it look good.

Blacker than the blackest black times infinity! Grin

Otherwise a bright green looks quite nice (brighter than just a hue change on the purple one).

It could be several colors. For example, explosions are not yellow. If they were, the darker pixels would be half-bright yellow which about the ugliest color ever (next to half-bright cyan).

So, it could be rainbow colored, flashing, etc. At any rate, it's more interesting with a hue shift going along with the value ramp.

He probably meant "0*∞" as short for

lim[ f(x) * g(x) ]
x->a

where

lim f(x) = 0
x->a

and

lim g(x) = ∞
x->a

And then it is not necessarily undefined.

(Okay, I can't believe I just wrote that. Please forgive me everyone.)

Would a deep red or orange make it look too much like a Hellbore Cannon? If not, that would probably look good.
