Reposted from the Screenshots Forum

Recommended Posts

Because this may be of interest to other modelers who don't know, I've copied this over from the Screenshots Forum for wider dissemination:>>Unfortunately, dynamic numbering in FS2k2 is like Henry >>Ford's Model A, available in black, black, or black... >>>Hey Bill! >>That's actually wrong answer ;) You can change the color of >the text by adding this into aircraft.cfg: >atc_id_color=(color in html code I guess) Thanks Mikko! Although your answer isn't quite accurate either, using my faith in you as the basis, I did a dogpile search to arrive at the absolute factual answer... :)1) This "feature" is totally undocumented in the official SDK's.2) The entry does work, but the format is misleading!3) The entry is actually hexadecimal, but hex is typically written as #FF00FF, whereas the format 0xffffffff typically is used to represent BCD... 4) The entry must be made as a combination of the two formats, i.e., 0xffFF00FF, where the "capitals" represent the color in hexadecimal...5) In order to duplicate the color of the stripes, I used Photoshop's eye dropper to sample the color and determined the RGB values to be:R=152G=0B=8This will 'translate' in hexadecimal to:9800086) The completed entry for atc_id_color would therefore be:atc_id_color=ff9800087) A handy RGB to Hexadecimal conversion chart is available at:http://www.cyberbits.com/Backgrnd/hexcolr2.htm
