Kustom Crew Color Requests

Recommended Posts

JRebbert512

 

 

So after much tooing and throwing (< intentional misspelling because its literal) I managed to finally settle on a decent take on Corvette Flame Red which is the General Lee's Color. Here is a quick Gif to show how its different from the darkest Orange.

Here it is in game in different light settings, please do bare in mind that this was not for a General Lee replica for myself so the wheels are not incorrect, its just not meant to be a General Lee.

 

This colors Hex is #6A1001

I'm having some trouble understanding this entire post, and I believe my confusion stems from your repeated usage of the name "General Lee". As a name for a car, the General Lee is one very specific car: the character car from the television show Dukes of Hazard. That car was a Dodge Charger. The Dukes car in GTA is mainly based on the Dodge Charger and its name is an homage to the television show. To refer to any Dukes, or any other Charger, as "General Lee" is inaccurate. Is that what you were doing, using the name General Lee generically for the Dukes? As I said, I'm a bit confused over how you meant it.
I was making a reference to the General Lee because this is the color of the General Lee, I was saying it as if this were a replica of that car, many people have made a Dukes as close to a General Lee as possible using various shade of orange and Mecenary wheels, and in some cases the Scottish flag as I bares an overall similar resemblance to the rebel flag. Your confusion confuses me, I don't understand how a simple post can be so misconstrued.The source of my confusion is your mention of the General Lee in reference to a red color.

 

The General Lee is orange, not red.

 

It is true that some of the many Chargers used in the series were painted Corvette Flame Red, but even that color was a very orange-ish shade of red. Nothing like the strong red you're showing on that Dukes.

 

You may have found one source for a color called Flame Red and you may have matched that color. However, the same name is sometimes used for more than one color. I saw that myself when researching Ontario Orange for my Coquette Classic, as you may remember. In the same source I found two distinct different colors, both of which were called Ontario Orange.

 

Other Chargers used for the General Lee were painted Hemi Orange. The cars used in the Dukes of Hazzard movie were also all painted Hemi Orange.

 

Regardless of the name of the color, if you ask anyone who's actually seen and remembers the show what color the General Lee is, "orange" will be the overwhelmingly most common answer. The color you've come up with is quite nice, don't get me wrong; I've made a note of it for my own future reference. But it's the wrong color for the General Lee.

Pfft the movies sucked ass and didnt do justice to the series

 

1975 Corvette Flame red 70 cannot be mistaken as more than one color. Because the 70 clarifies it. Go to any paint manufacture for paint color and u ask for 75 vette flame red 70 they will match it.

While it is true 4 or more paint colors were used for the duration of the series. The reddish orange was more common. In gta corvette flame red jusr shows as a red

I don't know which Flame Red he is trying to match, or even whether or not there's more than one. This is why I did not say "you've got the wrong Flame Red".

 

Ultimately, regardless of the name of the color, the fact is that the General Lee is not the strong red color shown on the Dukes. Yes, it was a reddish-orange, OR orange depending on which paint was used on the car--and LOTS of cars were used, sometimes several per episode. But none were just red, not like on the Dukes above.

 

Also, I know the movie is not popular with DoH fans, but the point of me mentioning it was to show that even they knew the General Lee is orange.

They always default brighter, regardless of saving his way or or using inspect element.

This is correct, which is why to get the right shade you should put the hex you want into a Hex color picker and make the shade lower, i recommend using this site as its the one ive been using and its been very good.

 

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp

 

My tutorial was meant to show how to stop the Crew Color maker from changing it to a brighter color, but if you enter a hex as its written and shown on a computer it will go super bright when entered into the color creator and it wont be anywhere near the shade you see in the picture you got the hex from.

No worries about the late reply by the way.

 

I've been using Colorpicker.com and just lowering the brightness by 25% or so but your link is better so I'll use that instead, thanks :).

 

I'm still confused though. Sorry if your basically spelling it out for me and I'm still not getting it :D, the way the crew color picker works just confuses the life out of me. I get that you have to make the shade lower when first entering it but, I learned that the hard way when I first tried to replicate Pacific Blue for my Elegy.

 

What are you saying in paragraph 2 though? After the comma I just get confused again.

 

Again sorry if I'm being a pest but I still don't understand.

Could you quote the part you are confused about so I can get a better understanding of where you are going wrong.

 

No problem.

 

"but if you enter a hex as its written and shown on a computer it will go super bright when entered into the color creator and it wont be anywhere near the shade you see in the picture you got the hex from."

 

After this I just get confused again.

 

 

 

 

Right i see what i mean here is when you see a color you like and it was has a Hex value next to it, that will be the color in the real world, not GTA. for example if you see a nice bright red that claims the Hex is #FF0000 and it looks bright but not super bright and then you try and type the hex into the color creator it will brighten by at least 5x which is why you have to shade it down so it looks the same shade in the GTA world as it would in the real world.

Oh I see now, thanks for clearing that up for me :).

 

Any idea how much the colors get brightened up in GTA, I've been darkening it by 25-30% but I don't know if I'm doing it too much or too little.

 

BTW nice job on your take on Corvette Flame Red, it's a shame GTA's colors are so f*cked up.

Oh ok, thanks.

 

Personally, I don't understand the logic of only giving out color codes by PM request. If one wants their color to be private or secret, that's their perogative, but if you're going to offer to give it out by PM to presumably anyone who asks for it, then why not just post it publicly in the first place?

I'm not sure why you see this color as Red, on my screen it looks like Reddish Orange but definitely not just solid Red.

The car in the photo I included was an actual stunt car from the show. It's not a replica. That means the color on it is not wrong.

 

If I had to pick one of your four samples as the color that's correct for the General Lee, I'd pick the bottom-left sample. If I could pick ANY color to paint a replica car, I'd pick Hemi Orange, because that was the other main color used on cars used in the show, and it is more like what I remember the General Lee to be than the red-orange of Corvette Flame Red.

I know its an original car, but there were not many General Lee's painted in this shade of Orange, they were mostly Corvette Flame Red, but because they had to make many General Lee's for stunts they painted the car a similar Orange to previous seasons, both are correct colors but the Flame Red was more common amongst the many cars made for filming the show early on, they were then using the brighter Orange towards the end of the shows run.


As the show went on the builders of the cars became less consistent in making the car's color the same as the first versions were, which is why those who replicate this car now tend to paint it different shades of Orange, because there were many shades used which are all technically correct but the brighter Orange was used less frequently than the darker ones.

Ugh, not trying to derail this thread farther than it already has been, but this car is General Lee 1. The car shown doing the long standing world record jump shown in the intro to the show. It was restored using the build specs from George Barris. It is not red. at all.

The mentioning of the word 'Red' In Corvette Flame Red does not mean that it is Red, its also a shame to see that those who repainted LEE 1 made it the wrong Orange.

LOL

That's just it, it isn't "the wrong orange" when George Barris created the original General Lee 1, he didn't paint it using any pre-existing factory colors. Yes MANY shades where used on the General Lees throughout production. They even admitted to just mixing together whatever colors they had lying around. Plus if they bought a Charger off the street (which they did a lot of) if it was already any shade of orange, they just used it. But the original car was the shade shown in the picture above. And can plainly be seen in the intro of the show to NOT be the red-heavy shades used on other show used cars. (including Flame red, Hemi Orange etc)

Ok im going to get this back on topic, we are arguing about something that was proven and disproven years ago, can everyone who has posted about my Corvette Flame Red post simply edit their post saying 'Edited by request of OP'

 

All i did was post a color, use it if you like it, don't use it if you don't like it.

 

Thank you

Well I don't know where my post went I was half asleep. But I have seen with my own eyes a charger from dukes of hazard plus watched every episode as a kid. Some cars were a faded orange others were a richer orange, it was never red or anything close to red. Hemi orange is close enough imho. And just because thats the right colour to use all things considered. The general Lee was supposed to run the hemi motor by the way. I still remember when they bought it on the show and remarked about the motor when they opened the hood. :).

I'm not editing my posts. The discussion happened, and I think trying to hide it after the fact is silly and pointless.

 

As an experiment, and mainly for my own curiosity, I made a post on my Facebook page asking people to comment with what they think the General Lee's color is. I asked them to give an answer based on their memory of the color, and to not look at any photos or do other research. Just to post what they remember the color was.

 

That was about an hour ago, and so far, I've gotten these answers:

 

1. Orange-red

2. Peachy, bright-orange

3. Orange

4. Bright orange

5. Orange; how bright the orange was depended on the TV set it was watched on.

6. Orange. Is this like that "what color is the dress" thing?

7. Orange

8. The tires were black

 

I think that perhaps the one thing this proves is that often, the color we picture in our minds is not the color we actually saw. I will admit that I, for one, would have said the General Lee was "orange"; I would have never said red-orange. Yet if I do a Google image search, I see more photos of red-orange General Lees than just plain orange ones. I assume they're the Corvette Flame Red ones, and the more straight orange ones are Hemi Orange.

 

I've tried to replicate many real car colors myself, and one thing I've seen time and time again is that I can get the color to look right in the game, meaning that I look at it and think it looks correct...until I compare what I've got against a photo of the real thing. I don't think our memory for color is particularly accurate. I think if we see a color that's close to so,etching we've seen in the past, our mind plays tricks on us to make us think it's the same color. Only by direct comparison can you truly tell.

 

It is also worth pointing out that our perception of color is an extremely variable thing. It depends on both the light hitting the object as well as the colors of other objects around the one whose color we're judging. For example, for me, a few of the General Lees I saw in photos today did look more red than orange...until I looked at the Confederate Flag on the roof, whose red part made the body color look more orange by comparison.

 

In this game, ultimately we're making cars to please ourselves, so we can make them any damn color we want. In that sense, I agree with the final sentiment in the quote: "use it if you like it, don't use it if you don't like it". Or, more to the point, if YOU think it looks right, then go ahead and use it. If the color in question here, the hex code given earlier for Corvette Flame Red, is the color you remember being on the General Lee, by all means use it!

Yeah the guy who posted that is quite a joker!

 

Anyway, since then, there were four more answers that simply said "orange", and one that was "orange and black".

 

I think all this little informal survey does is show that regardless of the facts, people's perception and memory of the car is that it was orange. In my opinion, any attempt to replicate the car should therefore err on the side of orange--but that's just me, anyone else can do it however they want. Just don't be surprised if nobody recognizes what you're doing if you lean more towards red than orange.

My bad, I didn't bother to check the link you posted. I just assumed it was the same one mentioned previously in the thread.

I have not, mainly just jesting with reference to the previous discussion.
