More about Colour

Every colour or formatting tag, has a dollar sign in front of them.   The effect is applied to the text to the right of the dollar sign.

Colo
r
This uses the Hex Coding System which is a way of expressing values from 0 to 15.  It's range is: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F.

The Dollar sign is followed by 3 Hex Codes.  For example $F00.    '0' is the smallest and 'F' is the largest amount.
The first code represents how much Red you want in the colour.
The second code represents how much Green you want in the colour.
The third code represents how much Blue you want in the colour.


Examples:
$f00Boatname  >>>   Boatname
$0ffNADEO       >>>   NADEO


How to code a gradient:
This is done by increasing one colour and decreasing another from one letter to the next.
If you want a gradient from red to blue, you have to decrease the red value (the 1st code), and increase the blue value (the third code) for each letter.

$f00
$d02
$b04
$906
$708
$50a
$30c
$10e
$00f

This example has changed the values by 2 each time.  Of course you have to follow each code by the letter you want coloured.
If you want a gradient from dark to light but with the same colour, then just increase or decrease one of the three codes from one letter to the next.

Example: (Dark to light green)
$0a0H$0b0e$0c0l$0d0l$0e0o   >>>    Hello

------------------------------------------------------------------

Format
$i: italic
$s: shadowed
$w: wide
$n: narrow
$m: normal
$g: default color
$z: reset all
$t: Changes the text to capitals
$$: Writes a dollarsign

Examples:
$iElephant$$   >>>    Elephant$
$wantelope   >>>   
a n t e l o p e

You can have colour and formatting tags together:
$i$d00Boatname   >>>  Boatname
$00fBoat$iname   >>>  Boatname

 

The Colour Charts

This is the Hex code system that is the basis for the Colour formatting used for the names in VSK.   When you use it to change the format & colour of your Nickname, preface it with $ sign (not the #) and use only the 1st, 3rd and 5th character.

So for example the light blue shown top right has the Hex Code of #99FFFF.   But in VSK, you should type $9FF.
