The True Color Of The Empire. by AggeIw The True Color Of The Empire. by AggeIw
LED Power! Never seen before a shot comes alive with a few adjustments. Red has no purpose to the empire. Blue, Cold, and modern fits the theme. Extra bonus to the yellowish sun :)

I agree with the other who've said that the red is better: its more menacing! But then blue is more ergonomic.

Red is a color that should not appear in empire

Don't ignore the physiological impact of colors Agg.  Blue is representative of tranquility and calm....it just does not fit the Empire IMHO.   www.ramtco.com/wp-content/uplo…

Oh yeah i know those things. Still, if you notice the color patterns of the empire from ANH to ROTJ they become more blue and blue all the time. Blue walls blue fighters  blue symbols blue lights etc. ANH has the tendency to add Red for stress and oppression even torture (see leia's cell or garbage room etc) plus the effect i did simulates the LED that appear on lens= more high tech.

The interior of the tie fighters is just one of those iconic things to me and your change just instantly screamed WRONG in my brain the moment I saw it.  Like a Stop Sign painted green.    I'm just honestly not following the logic that blue = Imperial.   Red, White, and Black is what immediately pops to my mind when I think of the Empire in Star Wars.

Ah i see where you come from.
Indeed i have constantly these moments in my head saying "dont change this its too iconic, it might damage it".
But yet again i decided if you craft something good as a piece and as a whole then you can create your own little iconic moments.
Do you still think that Red, White, and Black is Empire as a whole in the Original trilogy?

I think you have missed the mark big time with this one AggeIw.   Just you reconsider....

By RotJ, almost everything computer-related about the Empire is blue. The consoles in the Emperor's throne room being the most obvious.

Also, the "tranquil" blue with the evil Empire creates some beautiful cognitive dissonance. After all, Palpatine's main goal is, after all, peace. But peace through the brutal submission of all enemies. It's powerful and symbolic.
