RE: Missing Ldraw Colors - Willy Tschager - 2016-10-06

We translated Lilac with Purple. See Bright Reddish Lilac, Medium Lilac, therefore this should become Medium Purple. As for the edge the usual #333333 should be appropriate.

BTW, you should also add the original LEGO color name to your chart to ease future identification, see http://www.ldraw.org/article/547.html

Please create new edge colours for the alternative file too, ldcfgalt.ldr

This is a hard guy. Only a few information available. And two opinions on the RGB color. The good thing is, that the 234 is free as ldraw id.

I would love if you could help me out on this since I do not have any intention to get creative.

I'm fine with the name. As for the RGB I'd go with swooshable. Measuring the color in PS I get values close to [size=large]#FBE890[/size] (since it is a transparent part it is hard to figure out what is the gray background and what is overlay). As for the edge use #baab6a

While we are working on LDConfig.ldr, I'd like to see RGB value of main color (16) to be changed to something more "visible" than current gray, which is very easy to confuse with Light Gray or LBG. See this discussion for more details... I suggest to use #ffff80, a color I use for years as default color for LDView.

Other opinions/suggestions?

This means, that I need to change my background from white to another colour too. :-)

Not forced. I use white background. I agree that the text preview here seems overexposed, but with shading it works really well (at least in LDView).

It's close to Bright_Light_Yellow but I think being similar to Light_Gray is much worse. I'm fine with it.

It's indeed difficult to choose a color not close of an existing one in LEGO palette - just need to find one not as ubiquitous as LG/LBG!

We shouldn't be too fast to change this color, it seems to trigger issues with some software - albeit not major ones:
- LDPE does show the modified color in the color bar, but a part in main color remain gray
- In LDCad, unused space in color wheel takes the color of main color and becomes yellow.
