Missing color in LDConfig - Vincent Messenet - 2020-05-27

I'm going to post two new patterned tiles 1 x 1 which use Metallic Light Blue color.

This color is missing from LDConfig so, for now, I will submit both parts with simple Light Blue color and will modify them as soon as the new color is available.

This color has so far only been used in printed patterns. Never as a material colour on parts. That's way it can't be found on those places.

It is actually very common in printed patterns.

IMHO the Metallic Light Blue (code 10045) is a metallic paint colour, not pearlescent plastic. It should be moved.


RE: Missing color in LDConfig - Takeshi Takahashi - 2021-08-27

"Metallic Pink" colour is also needed.
I'll submit these parts in DOTS sets

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=25269pb012&idColor=11#T=C&C=11

This colour appears as printed patterns (not material colour) AFAIK.

Metallic light blue will use code 10045. A corrected version should be included in the next part release.

IMHO the Metallic Pink (code 10046) is a metallic paint colour, not pearlescent plastic. It should be moved.

It should be placed after Metallic Light Blue, code 10046

No, according to BS and Ryan Howerter this is not paint:

Is it really? We all thought the gold on the Pharoh hat was the part color but it turned out to be a full part paint. Since the only pic I can find the the one you linked I'm not convinced.

Ok. Scratch everything I wrote above. That said, the color linked in the examples is clearly an ink, not a plastic color.

I say we might have 2 different shades of metallic pink then.  And both are metallic paint, not  pearlesent plastic.

Why color list lists Silver Flip-flop as Flat Silver, and Cool Silver, Silver and Silver Metallic as a single color named "Pearl Light Gray"? Lego Silver colors is a bit convoluted topic, I know it, but current listing of those colors seem to be pretty incorrect with merging 3 of silver colors, and calling one of them "Flat Silver", putting it into similar name with very different color Flat Dark Gold, more typical pearl color unlike Silver Flip-flop (which has it's own copper and gold counterparts)


RE: Missing color in LDConfig - Magnus Forsberg - 2022-03-24

As you said, this has been discussed before and we all agree on those three being the same shade of coloured plastic.

Okay, makes sense about timeline, but I can't agree those are same shade. There are two shades of original 131 Silver, one used by the ABS parts, and another one by parts made of softer plastic (like minifigure weapons), and first looks similar to Cool Silver, while second to Silver Metallic.

By the way wouldn't it be better to rename Flip-flop Silver into something that is not "Flat Silver"? It is a bit confusing for very unique pearl color to be named same way with the another one, that is pretty normal pearl, and also minding it's the name BL uses for Silver Metallic/some parts of 131 Silver.

Also, I think inclusion of Flip-flop Red and Flip-flop Yellow would be good.

Well BL calls Flip/Flop colors Bionicle Copper/Gold/Silver. I doubt that those sound much better.

BL doesn't have name for them actually, it just includes them in other colors (which is very normal thing for BL, it merges colors all the time). But I think just calling them Flip-flop would be enough. It's a name everyone knows if they're aware of existence of those colors

Upd. Oh wait they do now. Didn't know
