Hi, I would like to request a proper paint color for the ALPINA Blue metallic. I just cannot seem to get it right and would love to have someone hel me out on it.
Link to some photos of the color I'm after for my cars in FH5:

Would be very greatful if anyone can manage it because there is no real clean reference photo I have not been successful at making a colour that looks similar to this in FH5.

Edit: Added more pictures for a better understanding of how it should look outside, maybe it helps.

I also have another request, if anyone could help me to get the "Champagne Quartz" from BMW right in FH5 that would be great.
The values in the spreadsheet seem to be inverted somehow and even if I flip them it doesn't look like ones in the pictures below.

Spreadsheet values for BMW Champagne Quartz:

Metal Flake

Lowlight
Hue: 0.08 L
Saturation: 0.24 R
Brightness: 0.42 L

Hightlight
Hue: 0.60 L
Saturation: 0.85 L
Brightness: 0.20 R

These setting just don't come anything close to the pictures attached:

52de279798e85464f46a469ea0bea703.jpg


I don't know what it is, but I just adore this colour so much and I want to put it on some of my BMWs in FH5. You're a hero if you can find the actual formula to make this color look as close as possible in FH5 as in the pictures.

I’m not sure if you read what I wrote above you but I already edited it earlier and the version I did is staying on the chart.

Question for JaCor and Madarax - if I'm picking a refrence photo, is it not advisable to pick one like this?

Acura/Honda (Inquiry and Request)
Milano Red - I'm confused. (for the record, Milano Red is listed as R81 from Acura and Honda)

Acura: Normal - 0.99 R, 0.93 L, 0.80 R (which I think is more accurate IMO)
Honda: Normal - 0.96 L, 0.98 R, 0.84 L

I thought when both colors share the same paint code, they would be the same overall? Or am I just missing something here?

Requests:
Flamenco Black Pearl (Acura Integra Type-R, Honda Prelude) - NH592P
Camellia Red - R86P

Nissan (Feedback)
Platinum Mist Metallic - 673 - SlowJRN verssion
Lowlight: 0.58 L, 0.10 R, 0.83 L
Highlight: 0.58 L, 0.06 L, 0.92 R

I might go back and try this again. Something doesn't look right here.

Isn’t Flamenco Black already on the chart? I could’ve sworn I did that already. The same with Camellia Red. Or someone else did. Also, I did the Honda version of Milano Red. Also, is it just me or are you redoing colors that I’ve already done? :/ :( I really want to say that this is a game and things aren’t going to be 100% accurate to real life. Please keep that in mind. Also factor in that everyone has different types of displays as well.

Edit: Yep, I was right. Flamenco Black Pearl is already on the chart but someone named it ‘Flamenco Pearl Black’. I’ll change the name.

I must have missed it.

Whoops.

Also, no - I genuinely thought Platinum Mist hadn't been done - my bad.

The Milano Red example was what confused me (because I thought they were the same in principle, not in practice)

I’ll take another look and see about the Platinum Mist one and see about Milano Red as well. Idk how long ago I did that.

So I looked up Porsche Nardo Grey color that is not on the spreadsheet.

Normal-
Hue: 0.55
Saturation: 0.07
Brightness: 0.55
This isn’t going on the chart. Nardo Grey isn’t even a Porsche color, it’s an Audi color. Porsche’s PTS uses colors from other manufacturers. Nardo Grey has been on the chart for a long time. You should really check the chart before trying to add stuff. We tell this to everyone because so many things get requested that already exist on it.

So I just came up with a color that is not a Porsche color then why is it on a Porsche in the picture?
It wouldn't be the first time a customer of an expensive car got a sample painted - Porsche's Exclusive Manufaktur and BMW's Individual (to list a few examples) programmes use a sample to paint theme in which customers (for a hefty price) spec their car to an individual color.

Which is sort of like this chart - I mean, one time, I used McLaren's Amethyst Black on a '21 GT3.

I use the colors on different manufacturers all the time 😊 That way you’ll have truly unique stuff that no one else in the world has.

Request for more skilled colour makers 🙂 I need Nord Gray from 2nd Gen Honda NSX and Charlotte Green Pearl from 1st Gen Honda NSX.

I could find  Nord one here in thread but it doesn't look good in Horizon 5 and for some reason it's not listed (it is now) in spreadsheet. Charlotte Green is not on this thread and spreadsheet too so i'm guessing nobody done it before.
Thanks.

Edit : corrected myslef 😅

Charlotte Green Pearl? From what I remember about Acura/Honda literature, Brooklands Green Pearl is fundamentally the same color (although why they've given it a different name, I've no idea) that you could get away with.

Both are listed as G70P, if I'm not mistaken.

As for the gen 2 NSX, for the sake of clarification, you've attached Nord Gray which is on chart.

Yeah sorry i had something on my mind at moment of writing and changed Nord to Storm Gray 😅

As i said i found Nord here in thread but not on sheet at that moment. I'll try it out but if it's same as one here in thread than i guess nobody will redo it to FH5 😞 it looks off in 5 lighting.

Have you tried Brooklands Green yet?

As Madarax says, these colors aren’t always going to be 100% accurate to IRL. But they are pretty damn close.
