Any thoughts on the colour of the stripes on Vargr ships?

What Ewan said, but turned up to 11. Something that would give Chris Foss pause because it was so gaudy.

The only color reference I can remember for Vargr is the color of 'The Flaming Eye' which was a black and yellow job. Or at least I think it was a Vargr ship, I don't actually have the module and I'm going by memory, which can be dangerous more often than not.

Actually, the 'Flaming Eye' was a Vilani symbol, contextually equivalent to the Jolly Roger.

Yeah, I was thinking black & yellow. Or maybe dried-blood-red instead of black...

Well - if one goes with their, um, 'predecessors' as indicative, they would have dichromatic vision and suffer discrimination impairment similar to that of red-green color blindness in humans.

Optimal color at 429 nm and 555 nm wavelengths would yield a vivid violet and a neon-ish green to humans, but in their color spectrum it would appear blue and yellow (they would only see yellows, white, blues and gray colors)! That should not only be quite, um, loud (and tacky) - it also has an ingame 'rationalization'. Plus, a Vargr should be suitably put out when his ship is referred to as 'purple and green' instead of its rightful 'blue and yellow'!

Try these approx RGB values => 118, 0, 255 and 209, 255, 0:

Quick update on the Z80 turret rebuild.


z80wip02 by nezach_hod

It still needs some cleanup on the turret and then I need to split some corners on the hull so I can get some fat gloss on the edges there.
