    The Forza Color Chart is back! I have borrowed liberally from T-12's original thread for this first post. And I have learned a few tricks after posting this on the official forums, namely to write a disclosed and a new way to get the colors faster.

    Ok first off Mr. T says it later on but it needs to be repeated
    THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED SOME COLORS WILL BE OFF JUST A TOUCH AND IT IS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.
    Especially now that Horizon has a dynamic lighting system, I can bet that the first time you leave the paint shop your car will not look exactly right because these codes are generated using the best case scenario pictures I can find. This mean if you leave the shop at dusk/night/dawn it won't look exactly right, give it till its bright noon-ish to decide.

    Recent additions:

    Total Color Count:
    530

    Tips:
    If you want a metallic color [denoted on the sheet like this: Name (M)] to really pop use the special color and use color 1 as the color on the chart and color 2 almost the same but take out maybe (subtract) 3 numbers of saturation (second bar) and add about 2 numbers to the brightness. Even if you use exactly the same code it looks more metallic-y than the metallic section.

    Requests:
    I will do requests, and as a bonus I will do them a little quicker these days. But I have a request for you valued customer!
    Bring me at least three (3) photos of the color you are looking for. Ideally they would include one in shade and two sunlight ones but lets not get too picky. If you don't leave me at least three photos don't expect your color to be on the chart anytime soon. It is such a PITA to track down some of these colors you guys find.:lol:
    Oh except for Nissan Midnight Purple III I have tried and tried but that color is just too awesome for Forza to handle.

    Just added the new BMW Frozen paints. New color name designation to go along with them (F) represents flat / matte colors.

    Tweak Brown (Audi)

    Color 1

    Hue: .05L
    Saturation: .50M
    Brightness: .19L

    Color 2

    Hue: .07L
    Saturation: .31L
    Brightness: .75M

    ---

    Simpler: .07M, 29R, 30L. Simpler takes into account how the color would appear in a selection catalog, not how the color would react to various lighting scenarios. Simpler is a 1:1 recreation as it appears in these circumstances, and only these circumstances.

    Thats a pretty ugly and undercolored photo.. You might have to do better then that. All that grain would make it hard to pinpoint I would assume.

    I wish there was a way to view the colors without having to google them :( I kind of hate how they took out Metallic swatches.

    Me too. How flipping silly. Trying to blend colour shift or metal flake is a pain in the butt.

    I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate this resource. I am having so much fun recreating these colors for my cars. I see you have AMC's Big Bad Green on the list. How about doing the other two colors, Big Bad Orange and Big Bad Blue? Hopefully this will help.

    I wasn't going for that color exactly, but I might have created it accidentally? I'll have to check but I'm pretty sure I made it a metallic as well.

    I'm curious. Exactly how do you work these numbers out? It can't be a simple as eyeballing it? Do you feed a representative color sample into photoshop?

    Read Frizbe's OP. All of the original information is there and served as the starting point, and once I did it enough I was able to get it down to a basic science of knowing when to compensate values, the ideal circumstances for sampling a color, and getting the tint as accurate as possible.

    Having color charts obviously makes the process much easier because all of the information is right there, but there have been more than a few instances where I've had to use several pictures for one particular color in different lighting environments just to have a better sample than what I had beforehand - I can't say I'm particularly fond of them but it works out eventually.

    Thanks for the response. I'll definitely read Frizbe's OP.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, the link to the original thread is a dead link to the old ForzaPlanet website. http://www.forzaplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=239 Now it just redirects to GTPlanet's front page.

    Check the original thread then. eek5's source thread is likely lost but the focal point is linked there and here so you're not missing out on anything past that.

    I can't make any promises just yet but it seems like my burnt out feeling with racing games is coming to an end, which means I'll be posting more. :p

    Don't you ever get bored of driving around in a white 595 essesse and wish we had more vintage FIAT factory color options in-game? No? Just me. Oh, well. Will mix and upload all the various whites and greens tomorrow. The blues too, if there will be enough time left in my day.

    I will start putting those colors on my cars as soon as I've finished watching Agents of SHIELD tonight.
