Dear friends, we need to speed things up a little bit, so in this thread, we will discuss several finishing aspects of the dial:
- dial lettering
- luminiscent material
- dial colors
1. Dial lettering
We have the font and now we need to know what you want to be written on the dial. I don't want to limit your imagination by providing some strict guidelines, but please keep in mind, that we are designing a cockpit instrument and these need to be clean and uncluttered, so please think twice before you post...
2. Luminiscent material
We have almost finished dial and we can safely decide what luminiscent material we want. Here are some options to start with:
Here is relative brightness:
Here are standard colors (Greenline):
Here are standard colors(Greenline) charged in daylight:
Here are standard colors (Greenline) charged at night:
Here is Blueline:
Here is Blueline charged in daylight:
Here is Blueline charged at night:
C1 vs BGW9: (remember, C1 is not the brightest!)
3. Dial colors
This is related to the lume material and we should consider it together: we are designing a cockpit instrument, therefore strong lume is desirable. Some details do not need to be lumed and these can be of any color we choose. Some details must be lumed and color is a trade off for... What do you think?
Please, make my life easy and mark your post accordingly:
- use a numbered list, where you will follow the structure above
- use bigger, bold font to mark you post with proposal
- if you do not propose anything and just want to comment or discuss, do not use big bold fonts at all
Here is what you post should look like if you want to propose something:
1: Dial lettering
This is what I want to propose: asdjasjd alsd asdoiasodad asdad ioihjrwedf asd,nje fasd kjearpiqjafas dalskdfnaeirj as asidjpaie rasp cpsjfpaiejf as.
