Color Crytheria of Euroscope: how it work?


Recommended Posts

Hello guys, I would explain a strange fact that I had found with ES: I got the SMR colors applied in real life from ENAV (the Italian Agency of ATC) and I decided to apply these layouts over my ES sectorfile. However i found a very singular....problem: with colors from image the color indicated for the background is #143232 (Hex Format), which converted in decimal, is  1323570.

If I try to upload this color, however it appear the region with a color which is something in the middle between dark gold and brown (the hex color that I had identified is #2F2900 for this strange color). I decied so to applied the color with a modify of the color applied for inactive sectors to find the code that I would applied for the background on SMR.

I found the code for the color desired after these modifies on Symbology.txt (decimal 3090688), and I tried to upload the decimal format on the sct inside [REGIONS]. Now the color is correct, and I have a dark green sea color, but if I try to find online the same decimal color that I had insert on sct file to insert this green sea on ES,  with different websites the code 3090688 is correlated with the previous dark gold-brown color that it was appeared wrongly on my map....

At this point someone can explain me how it work the decimal format on ES and why there could be these problems? thanks in advance!

Hey Andrea, to obtain the Euroscope-equivalent code, use the following formula, where RED, GREEN and BLUE are values from 0 to 255:

 (BLUE x 65536) + (GREEN x 256) + RED

Cheers,

Use our colleague @Jonas Kuster's website https://webtools.kusternet.ch/color, pick the color and just take INT value.
