colors in horizon.dat
Bernd Klemt Jan 31, 2018
I implemented a circular area of 30 deg diameter located at the zenith at the
beginning of my horizon.dat file (without the empty line in between):
0 90 30
That works fine. But when I try to use a 6bit hexagesimal number for the color I
get arbitrary colors, no color at all (perhaps black) and sometimes Guide crashes
My goal was a color like 996633 which I choose from this site for example:
>. But with this color number
Guide doesn't respond anymore.
A description of the .mar files is given here at chapter 25 "marking":
> And also "objects.dat" uses the
hexagesimal color numbers.
What I'm doing wrong?
