Ldraw Dark Flesh color


Ldraw Dark Flesh color
#1
Hello all,

Opening this thread because of a debate we have with Magnus on the PT for the part I submitted 6126972a.dat and the color I used.

I went with Ldraw Medium Dark Flesh (84) because having the part and its sticker in front of me this looked like the best color. However, Magnus rightly reported that this part is Lego Medium Nougat which corresponds to Ldraw Dark Flesh (86).

The reason I open this thread is that I believe the hex code for the Dark Flesh is too dark when compared to other websites and also my part. Here is a color comparison between Ldraw, Brickset, Bricklink, and the color I took from a photo of my part:

   

The comparison was based on the color links done by Brickset: https://brickset.com/parts/colour-Medium-Nougat

Then I went further and compared other colors from the same "family" and noticed the Lego Dark Orange is linked to two different colors in Ldraw LDConfig.ldr maybe there is a good reason for this but I was not able to find it after looking on the forums. Here is a larger color comparison:

Also, I found out on https://rebrickable.com/colors/ that Ldraw Medium Dark Flesh (84) is linked to Lego Medium Nougat which for me looks more logical when compared with other websites.

What do you think?

Vincent,

I looked into this and the main problem is that when we did the conversion we considered the LEGO color chart as well as BL's. At the time BL had already the color LEGO Medium Nougat linked to BL Medium Dark Flesh and since we tried to link where possible to BL to ease shopping we went with BL and it's HEX.

However I cannot see where the problem is. According to:

https://brickset.com/parts/colour-Medium-Nougat
http://ryanhowerter.net/colors.html

312 - LEGO Medium Nougat is 150 - BL Medium Dark Flesh is 84 - LDraw Medium_Dark_Flesh

Consider also that if we change the HEX all patterns using Medium Dark Flesh change color.

As there are no comments on this I guess we are done.

This is exactly where the problem is, if 312 - LEGO Medium Nougat is 84 - LDraw Medium_Dark_Flesh why does LDConfig.ldr contain the following mapping:

312 - LEGO Medium Nougat = 86 - LDraw Dark_Flesh
38 - LEGO Dark Orange = 84 - LDraw Medium_Dark_Flesh

I see. I linked:

0                              // LEGOID 312 - Medium Nougat
0 !COLOUR Medium_Dark_Flesh                                    CODE  84  VALUE #CC702A  EDGE #333333

0                              // LEGOID 128 - Dark Nougat
0 !COLOUR Dark_Flesh                                                 CODE  86  VALUE #7C503A  EDGE #333333

0                              // LEGOID  38 - Dark Orange
0 !COLOUR Dark_Orange                                              CODE 484  VALUE #A95500  EDGE #333333

Tweaked:

0                              // LEGOID 283 - Light Nougat
0 !COLOUR Light_Flesh                                          CODE  78  VALUE #FFC995  EDGE #333333

The LDConfig.ldr has been updated accordingly.
