Dwarf planet label color

Post #1by SevenSpheres » 26.10.2019, 02:36

Question for the Celestia Origin team: What should the label color for dwarf planets be in render.cpp to match the orbit color?

Art Blos, I'm asking for a label color. If you look at the file render.cpp, you'll see label colors are not exactly the same as orbit colors.

Clear. This file is not included in Origin. We did not create or edit it.

But color of label I know:

I know, but you did choose the dwarf planet orbit color.

That's too similar to the label color for major planets, and not close enough to the orbit color for dwarf planets. If you haven't chosen a label color I guess I'll just reuse the orbit color.

So what? For convenience, we choose our own color, but did not embed it in the program code.

As far as I understand, all these colors are identical (or very similar).

Well the developers did, so now I'm asking for a label color to match.

This: 0.556863 0.235294 0.576471 is purple.
This: 0.298039 0.321569 0.835294 is blue.
They are not similar.

The purple color of orbit our team adds only to SSC.
The blue color of label we did not change and could not change. It is identical to the standard color of big and dwarf planets, which is exactly what I meant.

Let me try to be more clear.

The developers have changed the color of dwarf planet orbits in the source code to Celestia Origin's purple. I want to make a pull request changing the color of dwarf planet labels, in the source code, to match the orbits. I was asking what label color I should use.

Since the Celestia Origin team hasn't chosen a label color, I will just make it the same as the orbit color.

I suggest that dwarf planet labels are something around red to brown, because that is the color of most dwarf planets and minor planets observed so far.

They have already been made purple. I see no point in changing the color again.

OK. But I think some dwarf planets may be purple; VG18 (FarOut) is estimated to be pink
