ZmasterBen's Colored Lamp Gallery! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I am putting together a gallery for colored lamps, to help people decide before they buy.

ZmasterBen's Colored Lamp Gallery!


Forum Version

Colored Lamp Pictures:
Normal
Red
Tan
White
Black
Grey
Yellow
Pink
Violet
Purple
Navy
Blue
Aqua
Lime
Green
Orange
Maroon
Brown
Gold

Notes
-I still need a black and gold colored lamp for my gallery. If you have either of these lamps I will pay you 500 PoE to let me borrow them and throw them on my basement wall
-Someone stated earlier on the forums that the black lamp caused a black out. This is false, the black heavily dims the room but it does not cause black out like candles.
-Some people have had trouble with the pictures being too dark. I have found that the angle you look at the pictures may cause issues, so if you are having trouble seeing them, adjust the position of your monitor, not your brightness.
-Although the pictures are Jpegs and the quality is worse, I have found that the glow of the lights represent the real thing just as well as the bmps.

Color Comparison Pictures
to compare similiar colors (lighter color on the left)

Normal/White
Red/Maroon
Aqua/Blue
Blue/Navy
Lime/Green
White/Grey
Tan/Brown
Violet/Purple

What's next?

I will continue to work on the split screen comparison images and will entertain any requests people have for them. Also, I had a request made by someone to do some screenshots with painted walls, so I am working on how to get that done and collecting lamps again.

Special thanks too:

Pjotr, Vistr, Mousebeard, Misery, Featherfin, Fannon, Sirlansolot, and Hogwash.

If you have any comments or opinions I don't mind hearing them along with any requests or suggestions you may have. Feel free to ask and I will see what I can do. :)

Thanks to all of you who have already helped me out and for those that do in the future. Enjoy my gallery!

I would have used JPGs in this situation as well, but for future reference, PNG images look identical to BMPs but are a mere fraction of the size (I saved a 1.65MB BMP image that someone posted and got it down to 297KB simply by saving it as PNG).

Nice. I have a black lamp on Viridian if you would like to borrow it. No cost, just find me there.

Each light works as though you've laid a cloth of the appropriate colour over the light. This is why many of the darker coloured ones seem quite dark. And why the white cloth makes it dimmer.

Yes you can. Let me dig out a screenshot of the hemp maze with Prometheus' black lamp.

EDIT:



I'm sure if you asked the OM on duty nicely, they would magic up one and place it for you.

TY so much. :-) The aqua seems to make the walls stand out a bit. that is what I was curious about with the lamps and walls of the same color.

It is also great to see the other style of town house too. I haven't seen that type yet. : )

Any filter in front of a light will make it dimmer, unless it's totally clear. I think the white light is more akin to a frosted filter than a clear one in this instance.

Bump-Tastic!

This is fantastic. Have you considered putting these images in the Wiki? Lots of people are sent there first with furniture questions. Also, you wouldn't have to worry about the questionable hosting from other free servers.

Finally, if you petition an OM very nicely during off hours, they might put a gold or black lamp on the walls for you so that you can take the screenies.

Ahem; Mind the 2+ year bump.

Requesting Lavender, Light Green, Magenta, Mint, and Rose examples? (edit to clarify: Either from ZmasterBen himself, or someone else with a similar setup for such.)

Ooo ... thank you Bethany! I just ordered a rose colored lamp and was wondering exactly how it'd look when turned on. Sweet - I won't be disappointed!

Geocities is closing down in October, so would this info be worth putting in the wiki? I confess I haven't searched to see if it's there already, but I'd hate to lose this color chart. Very handy stuff.

(I have several Geocities accounts, so that's how I know Yahoo is going to shut them down and delete the sites.)

I've put together a quick page to preserve ZmasterBen's resources combined with Ynahteb's contributions. It allows users to compare any two colors of lamps.
