Title: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Kham-Ryn Kurios on December 31, 2011, 10:00:47 AM
Here is a little guide to help answer some common questions.
This thread can also be used for any and all discussion of said topic. So please feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Dark Violet Amethyst - DVA

(https://i.imgur.com/gGsPxb2.jpg)
Bane's Heart - BH.

(https://i.imgur.com/MeBQqAm.jpg)
Pyrestone Orange - PO.

(https://i.imgur.com/4428B3b.jpg)
Sentinel Yellow - SY.

(https://i.imgur.com/AaCMOgE.jpg)
Emerald Green – EG.

These are the five "Forum" colors. They are all variations of colors available to the public.

(Someone please correct me if i'm wrong.)

DVA - Made by tuning a VA to a more indigo.

BH - I think it's made by tuning a VA to make it MAGENTA. (Sorry for the caps but you can argue with me all day about what color it is, so if you don't believe me google magenta.)

Pyrestone Orange - Made with red and green courtesy of an RGB led (much like Violet Amethyst is made with red and blue).  Blood Orange, Red Orange, w/e you want to call it, it looks like FO with more red.

Sentinel Yellow – Another mix of red and green with an RGB led, but this one turns out yellow.  Golden Yellow, really IDK how i'm supposed to describe it and not sound biased.......because i am.  It's just yellow and it's awesome.

Emerald Green – A mix of green and blue, essentially a modification of Sunriders Destiny with a higher resistance on the blue diode to give a greener hue.


These five colors can be ordered very easily.

First - When you are making your color selection, you MUST choose one of the "Premium" 5$ extra Colors. Such as, Violet Amethyst (VA), Arctic Blue (AB), Sunrider's Destiny (SRD), etc...

Second - There is a $5 ADDITIONAL charge for "Forum Only" colors.  Purchase a quantity of 5 (so $5) in requisitions charges from here: http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm (http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm)

Third - After you have made your selections and are ready to check out move to the checkout page. Here you will find a small box labeled "Order Comments", specify IN HERE that you would like to have the color chosen changed to W/E color you write in the box.


===============================================================

Please remember that the pictures of these colors do not do them their justice.

Other than Bane's Heart, the other 3 are so similar to the other colors that it just overwhelms the camera.

UPDATE:

PO, SY, BH and DVA are made using an RGB LED.

I am not sure if the same is for DVA.

Hmm, I actually thought there would be more than the four.  Still though they do look very nice. One thing I've seen though is neither Orange seems very photogenic.

Before they started offering these as secret colors, the originals were VA and SRD, then AB was the secret color.

No, FO looks yellow and PO just looks red in photos; which leads to personal opinion being the big decider. Some people do get some good pictures sometimes.

I can vouch for the awesomeness of the colors though. I'm a huge fan of the Oranges and of course Yellow.

Back in the day, there were only the five main colors (green, red, orange, blue,and silver) and Sunriders Destiny was the "secret color."  I remember those days...

Essentially, these forum exclusive colors are all made using RGB leds, along with Violet Amethyst, Sunriders Destiny, and Arctic Blue.  Pyrestone and Sentinel Yellow are created using a combination of red and green light, while the DVA and Bane's Heart are produced by tweaking the Violet Amethyst color (which is created using red and blue).  Meanwhile, the Arctic Blue and Sunriders Destiny are made using a combination of green and blue.

Just figured I'd throw that out there ;)

I'm more of a 5x5 kinda guy. But I have question on the forum page there in the member online box at the bottom each User's name is in almost a different colour, why is that?

The color of the name's change when your "Title" changes; which happens when you hit "Milestones" in the posts.

The posts kind of act like XP in a sense.

It makes the members feel more involved. ;D

I personally have always wrote the full name.

Just as a precaution, so you're comment is clear.

Not they wouldn't understand it but I would really fracking hate for someone to not get what they wanted because the abbreviation was accidentally missed.

Just write the full name to be safe brother. ;D

But SY is so much easier to type then Sentinel Yellow xD has there ever been a mistake where you've order a Forum colour and not receive your colour and instead a different colour?

So, aside from just bumping this I was wondering, how did people stumble on the forum colours?  Did someone one day just put in the comments "Hey can you make it yellow/pink/cream etc." or did they post up one day "Hey we were playing around with an LED and discovered blood orange!"

My first encounter with them was when I got my first US in FO because they didn't have Yellow.

Then I came to the forum and Master Nero was like "Oh yeah, they have yellow." then I lost it.

Once I started raving about sY the other color names started getting tossed around a lot more.

That's what I remember. ;D

Ah, I remember that now.  I'm very glad I could introduce you to your favorite color  ;D

It's pretty mysterious how they come about, although ultimately it comes down to people asking Ultra and Deep for specific things and them tinkering with RGB leds to meet these requests.  For Dark Violet and Bane's Heart it was just created when people wanted more blue or red in their Violet Amethyst sabers.

I believe Amanita was one of the first to get Sentinel Yellow, so she might be the one to answer about that origin.  Likewise, the first one I remember getting Pyrestone was a guy called Darkhorse V, though there very well could have been others before.

Keep in mind some of the modern "standard colors" started out as "forum colors."  When I first started buying from them they only had the standard five, with Sunriders Destiny as the "secret color."

So does that mean that these Forum colours maybe become apart of the Norm and new Forum Colours may come?

It's not outside the realm of possibility.  I can't say for sure (I'm not an employee) but from previous experience it wouldn't surprise me.

The thing is, when they offer a color as a regular selection they want to have 100% confidence in it.  RGB mixing is a tricky thing and it's hard to get a consistent color that makes everyone happy.  They typically wait until they have the perfect mix before introducing it into the "regular colors", and even then they sometimes tweak it down the line.

This is true.

My SY Shock has just a tinge more green than my wife's. (They are both the same yellow.)

I don't think every forum color is the same as the next, VERY MINOR differences because like Master Nero said they have to tweak it till it's right.

Either blade is awesome; Talking from a normal Mid and Ultra Edge blade.

The UE will give you a more Lightsaber look since it brings the color all the way to the edge of the blade.

UltraEdge Heavy Grade. I have one, and when I put it on my Green Saber it looks almost the same as if it were just UltraEdge. They're withstand duels. My UE fights my UEHG all the time.

The Shock does get the UltraEdge Heavy Grade blade. Although the DIV3 doesnt. I would suggest UltraEdge, like I said it can take quite a beating and still duel. My friend banged it against a school counter and no big deal. And to say fairly we were dueling pretty hard.

No, no. they're awesome just, heavy.

It's a personal opinion, Lightsabers aren't supposed to be blade heavy.

Go with Heavy though if you plan on dueling hard.

the link is probably going to change but this is a ring switch from customsaber and i am wondering it will work inside my shock and dark initiate v3?


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Master Nero Attoru on February 23, 2012, 05:58:39 AM
Yeah linking to other sites is a little restricted here.

That said, I know there's an option to buy a switch separately and send it in to have Deep install it in a saber.  Email him for details.

Also, I wouldn't be afraid of a midgrade or Ultraedge blade breaking, they're incredibly durable.  The heavy grade is fine too though, still very bright but weighted differently (twice the weight of a midgrade) and more stiff.  I've found a 32" heavy grade gives a nice weight if you're really set on the HG blades.

Oh no, Kham-Ryn would be so upset if everybody started doing that...

It'd be cool if there were somehow a Sentinel Yellow and a Sith Yellow, but I can't imagine what those would be.  Perhaps the Sentinel Yellow is more of a yellow while the Sith Yellow is more of a deeper gold?

Btw you know what's a great Sith color?  Pyrestone.  Perfect for a Sith saber IMO.

I'm sure you could e-mail them about it and send it back to get the LED color you wanted. They're good with stuff like that.

It's not much of a problem, to be honest. I was kinda hoping it wouldn't so I could get a Raven with sound in SY,

Ok so you got the VA instead, which isn't bad because now you have something to base your next purchase on.

There is no such thing as a yellow sith saber xD Its just a general colour.

Next one will probably be blue, Perhaps Arctic Blue so I can give it another shot for Yellow

I really want to see a Black Saber. Like uber special edition kinda thing.
since there's no way to make literal black light. they'd have to make it look like the Force Unleashed black sabers with a black center and white light around that.


I feel like they could put a reflective black bar inside the blade then use AS led...?
I bet they've already tried that though and it would pry increase the price by 10 or 15 bucks.

I ordered a DVA blade with BH FoC.  Made sure to specify that in the order comments.

Somehow I missed the part about paying the extra fee for forum colors.  *sigh*

Not sure what's going to arrive on my doorstep tomorrow.  Hoping it won't be VA with SRD FoC.

Awesome to hear! Enjoy them, Pictures when you can. ;D

PS - If something like that happens again, don't worry just check your card statement.

When I just did our last order for my friend, I added five of the Requisition Charges to reflect the extra $5 forum colors cost; Short Version, that $5 on your statement would be the forum color so you can put your mind at ease.

Nope!

I myself have a huge affinity for Yellows and Oranges and Browns and that area of the color wheel.

Anyway, a while back there was a lot of talk of using filters to achieve those sort of colors.

IDK about copper but someone was able to make a Salmon color. lol

So I just got my saber back today. I had sent it in to have Sound added, a red illuminated AV switch and to swap out my Fire Orange LED for Pyrestone Orange as I was looking for increased brightness in my blade color. I've seen examples posted here on the forum and I can say definitively that my sabers color is not Pyrestone. I'm not sure if it's an issue with the LED or the lens or something but the bottom of the blade near the emitter is very green and the Orange color doesn't start to come through properly until nearly halfway to 2/3rds the way up the blade.

Has anyone encountered this before? Is there are simple fix for this? I am heading out to San Diego Comic Con tomorrow and I really wanted everything to be in order before I left. I busted my ass getting a costume finished and sadly now it appears my saber is going to look at little strange ... as though it's having an identify crisis.

Sample images linked below;

I have a Pyrestone MLS , it originally had that happen when my li-ions were getting low. Then it went to just the yellowish green permanently. I love Pyrestone so I sent the MLS back in and now it's a even shade of reddish orange.It Could be the RGB led going bad, or just the way it was mixed . I must say the color of your blade looks wicked. I'm sure US would correct it for you. But your saber definatly has a unique and sinister look to it. Did you have quick disconnects installed? If so you would only need to send the MLS unit in.

I don't suppose there is anyway to tweak the RGB settings on the LED manually? I'll likely just leave it be, but if adjusting it was fairly simple I would be willing to give it a try to see if I can ease out the level of green.

I do not know anything about how they tweak the LED's.

Was there a specific color you were looking for?

Post by: DJDace on July 11, 2012, 12:06:28 PM
Well it's supposed to be Pyrestone Orange but the Green appears to be a little too bright and it's washing out the blade color. The Orange doesn't even really start to show through till about halfway up the blade and near the emitter the blade is almost Green. I was just hoping that maybe modifying the color intensity on the LED was a simple matter of using a screw driver to tweak a few small knobs or screws. Oh well, either way the saber looks and sounds incredible. I can always tweak it after SD Comic Con.

That's actually somewhat peculiar.  I mean I've seen things like that before, they tend to happen sometimes with certain RGB mixes, but never that severe.

The way they make an RGB color is applying resistors to select leads in order to provide a specific amount of voltage to each diode.  The RGB models are named for the Red, Green, and Blue diodes that they each contain, and therefore they use a specific mix of those colors to produce things like Violet Amethyst, Pyrestone, etc.

For instance your Violet Amethyst and variants use red and blue, while Pyrestone uses red and green.  In your case, the green appears to be quite potent towards the hilt, though it fades as it goes up.  Like I said, RGB colors sometimes do have this issue (VA hilts will be more blue towards the hilt and more pinkish towards the tip), but I don't usually see it to that degree.

Bummer. While it's kind of neat that it's unique, it's a little odd as a Sith saber. I was really hoping for that burnt Orange firey look. I guess I will have to see about sending it back in for tweaking. Oh well, it was fun swinging it around at San Diego Comic Con this week in full costume at least :)

Add the 5 charges.

It's what I've been doing since I found out and telling everyone else to do.

that way the extra $5 for the color won't look out of place, you will know why it's there.

For me it was from Emory. I had tried to order a SY and it came out in SRD. I asked him to look into it, and I had written so much in the comments box that they didn't see the SY specification. All was taken care of, but he told me to use the req. charges to be safe and double sure.

Post by: JdiKnhtJMH on August 04, 2012, 01:48:58 PM
That's true, but its not US' fault. I talked with Emory about that in an email and was told that LEDs naturally lean one way or the other, so when I got my first VA LED, it leaned red and I ended up with magenta so you have to know a bit what youre looking for. To get a really good Mace Windu color, you need a blue leaning purple LED, or one with a resistor added to the red side. I've also had trouble with an AB LED I bought being more Sunrider's Destiny. I didnt complain, I just went in and cut the green wire so it's just a Guardian Blue, and that works ok. Only time I sent something back was when the LEDs they sent me were busted.

I would suggest not getting an Ultra Edge, my first saber was an FO Liberator with an UE blade. I loved it but it wasn't until I put a mid grade in, that tthe color really was able to stand out; the white walls of the UE kind of dumb the color down.

Everyone likes different things but everyone seems to agree that the UE and Fire Orange aren't the best of friends.

lol Perhaps someone will be kind to me at christmas, but there is only one other saber I will be buying this year.... and that I probably shouldn't but it's a hilt I'm simply in love with. Nobody is going to expect it to be the hilt it is either. lol

But yeah, me and my bro have a habit of picking our own christmas gifts, so there's a good chance I might end up just asking for another saber. I did that last year. lol I may not though, just because I've already picked up what technically amounts to 4 this year, and that will be five with the new one. (Arbiter, Shock, Phantasm V2 so far) Have to keep the habit in check ya know. Or at least make the pitiful attempt to. XD

So I'm curious, would you say this color is closer to Luke's second lightsaber before it was remastered? I remember it being more of a bluish green than a true green, but SRD always seemed too blue. Of course, those are small child memories talking, and it might always have been the CG.

The Lux Rebel Star Deep Red would be a good choice, I got one and it's a very bloody red.
When Ultrasabers does acquire this color, we should call it "Bloodshine Ruby". ;)

I presume you mean get it on LED modules or MLS units, so that you can have alternate colors to swap out of QD-compatible sabers?  If so, then yes!  You follow the same process as you would ordering a saber (pick an RGB color, add charges, put the note in the comments)

Just about! I have a feeling that the silver clash may have made my EG somewhat blue-ish, but that could also be related to the Li-Ion batteries. I guess it's best to get experimental colors without FOC ultimately, even though it's a cool feature. Either way, I'm proud of my saber (and the most valuable emeralds tend to be more turquoise in color  ;) ).

Ack, sorry if I went off topic. I just love talking about my saber!

BH is Magenta.

On the first page of this thread there is a picture of BH, it looks more pink because cameras don't capture the light very well; too much light.

Nope. RGB colors use a single activation box. The only thing the RGB saber bodies are for is to accomodate extra switches so you can switch colors on the fly.

Has anyone had experience asking for a color to be tweaked more?  For example, if I am interested in DVA but I want it to look as close to indigo (or blue jean color) as possible, what would I ask to be done?  Does anyone already know the resistor values that would need to be applied?

Thanks.

Post by: jjpprob on November 29, 2012, 03:50:35 AM
I know you can, for example, ask for SY to be a golder yellow or a greener yellow, so I imagine they'd do it. I'd guess if you don't know the resistor values (I have no clue how to calculate them) it might be best to find the RGB hex values and give those instead? So for a blue jean colour, something like #0088FF. I'd guess that'd be what they'd use to figure out resistor values anyway.

When ordering extra MLS units for hilts with quick disconnects, what is the proper procedure to order these if it is not included in the drop down menu, say for instance, PO, BH, SY etc.?
Is it in the comments section where you state what you specifically want, including FoC?
Any other extra charges involved here?

Unless I'm mistaken I believe it's the same as if you were ordering one of those colors with a saber. Purchase 5 Requisitions ($1 each, so $5) on the Accessories page, and when you purchase your MLS unit select one of the premium colors (Violet Amethyst, Artic Blue, or Sun Rider's Destiny). In the Order Comments area during checkout say which one of the Forum colors you would like.

Post by: Darth Servius on December 22, 2012, 09:23:52 PM
Let me just be clear, I meant add the 5 Requisitions ($5) to you overall order DO NOT purchase them separately. The total amount of your order should be $40 ($75 if you plan to get flash on clash).

I just found out about Ultrasabers a few days ago (lucky me) and I'm in the market for my first lightsaber. I just want my first saber to be really great, and I was having trouble deciding between colors. Then I noticed this forum post, and I had a few color related questions about the "forum colors".

As I am particularly partial to red/violet/blue color spectrum I was wondering about those color variations of VA. Is DVA as bright as VA, or as bright as GB? Is it more of an "ultra-violet' look? Also is BH a more "pinkish" magenta or reddish (I know the picture is pink, but I don't trust cameras to capture the true glory of lightsabers).

Oh yeah, I was also wondering if the PO is red-red, red-orange, orange-red, orangyish, fiery red, fiery orange, dark red, dark orange, or any combination thereof.

Thanks in advance you guys.

It's a bit tough to answer really, since you're talking about colors that aren't nailed down to a specific mix at this time.  For DVA, VA, and BH, you're looking at pretty equivalent brightness, with DVA looking like more of a deep purple while BH is definitely a magenta color.  Pyrestone can vary a bit more from what I've seen, ranging from something slightly deeper than Fire Orange all the way to a very reddish orange.  In general though, it's a deeper orange hue, if that helps at all.

I personally like DVA, it's a pretty neat color from my experience.  They're all great though!

SOTJ's BH is more pink than red.

Sorry, just to clarify:  there is a $5 requisition charge for each MLS unit?  Say for instance I wanted to buy 2 MLS units, I'd have to put in a total of $10 requisition charge (plus an additional $35x2 if I wanted FoC for both)?

If you wanted a "Forum Only" color on those MLS units (i.e. one in Sentinel Yellow and one in Bane's Heart) then yes. Anytime you purchase a saber or an MLS unit with a "Forum Only" color you must purchase the 5 requisitions ($5). I assume it's because it is considered additional work for them to create the MLS units with those colors.

No.  RGB allows for 7 colors and the forum exclusive colors are not among those seven.  The Forum Exclusive colors are made with RGB LED's but they have resistors added on top of the Buck Puck or Resistor setup of the saber.  These resistors determine how much power a specific die receives from the batteries and therefore how much color is added to the mixing process.  They are specially designed to give a certain color and are in the process of being perfected before being offered to the general public.  It is a nice way to have a unique color that others do not have access but one has to keep in my mind that the colors offered to the public are pretty much done with experimentation and 99% of the time you will not see variation in colors or shades as you might see with forum exclusive colors. 

One other interesting piece of trivia.  You don't get Fire Orange with an RGB saber.  The RGB sabes produce Red, Green, Blue, Light Blue, Yellow, Purple, and a pinkish white.

Actually you can, but only in a couple of sabers, and only without sound. The reason is the different colored switches used are the latching type not the momentary type and they are only on the graflex and Malice(with activation box) due to the switches' lengths. here's the graflex without sound so you can see the switch option http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/stunt-graflexse.htm (http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/stunt-graflexse.htm)

Please note that I'm not trying to detract from your theme, but yellow represents freedom, wisdom, and unequited love.  It's association with fear came about after the bombing of pearl hardor during the internment of the japanese.  It was developed because of the racial association with the color yellow and the dosile nature of those interned.

It doesn't matter what color you select, so long as it costs an extra $5. Don't forget to add the additional $5 as well.

If I want a Led Module in DVA, do I just pick one of the rgb colors, add the $5 requisition charge, and tell them in the box? I was wondering cause the rgb colors don't cost more in the led modules.

Just pick one of the premium colors that are normally more and add the 5 requisition charges. Then specify what you want in the comments box when ordering.

How about Hot Pink

We make pink sabers ALL the time.  Just use the same method as ordering a forum only color and request "HOT PINK"

And yes, it is made differently than Bane's Heart, same two colors R+B, but different.

So suddenly there is Hot Pink? Why did nobody tell me this? I have not seriously considered ordering a Pink Saber before, though I've often been curious as to if I would like BH. Now I have another color to ponder. *ponders* Perhaps I should give in and order a saber with QDs, just so I can play with the forum colors. *ponders excuse for a new saber* I'm getting into trouble here, aren't I? :P

This thread was extremely helpful for me! I just ordered an MLS for my D. Arbiter in SY and I'm awaiting its arrival!!! Yellow is the color of fear after all....

in "riptide" Jaden Kohr constructs a yellow saber and the book says that in ancient times yellow was the jedi color for the sentinel= a jedi whose knowledge of the force equaled their fighting abilities ..... so in the star wars universe it is also a color that represents balance

Okay so I've yet to order my first ultrasaber, but have done tons of research. I want to order dva. I'm wondering: I'm considered part of the forums right? Also, for the extra charges, it says only add to cart if told to by U.S...do I still add it? Also, you said order $5 worth, since I only want 1 of the colors, do I get $1? Thanks any feedback would be EXTREMLEY appriciated.

You have to buy a specialty color in your order (VA) $5 extra on the order page
Then (Doesnt matter which color) Add $5 of requisition charges.

Leave a comment in your order saying the color you want.

As long as you buy a $5 color and add the $5 of charges, that's it.  And I believe that if you ask nicely in the comment box, they'll cut it down for free.  Not 100% though.

So it Hot Pink gonna be added the the front of this topic?  Because it seems pretty well established.

I understand the procedure for ordering a forum color blade...add any +$5 blade color, specify that forum color in the comment section, and add an extra $5 in requisition charges.

What if I order a forum only color Flash on Clash color such as Banes Hart Heart as well? Do I need to make the requisition charges equal a total of $10 for the 2 colors or is that not necessary? I'm all for tipping but only at restaurants  ;)

Thanks

Yes, if you order a forum only color for your main color AND for your FoC you will need to add the $10. Also be sure the color combo you choose is possible by using the chart or by emailing them or they will likely give you silver FoC.

And yes if you use a standard color for the main color and want a forum FoC you would add $5. Again make sure it's possible.

Thanks for the topic Kham!
You did send em this link a week ago when I harrassed you about my obcession with a KOTOR yellow bright blade ^^

SO I will ask again to the community: the SY in the picture looks very dimed. The AS +Lee filters is another solution to get my special color.
In your opinion guys, what would be the best way to get a amber yellow blade but so bright it will be hard to stare at it.
Also is it possible to add a pulsating effect to thi scolor AND a FOC...?
I 'm a pain of a customer I know XD

Thank you for your patience and yourhelp.

( it's the last step before I order my USaber, can't wait^^)


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Vex on May 08, 2013, 12:40:34 PM
The filters can get just about any color but they don't come out near as bright as a RGB led.  I have SY MLS units and they look great!

Post by: Regulus on May 08, 2013, 02:40:30 PM
Oh yeah!!!

thank you so much for your advice, now i can order my Reaper with a sentinel yellow pulsating blade and FOC in AS !!!!!

Another question ( I will edit if it's off topic)
I am a huge fan of case rapiers and sideswords (one in each hand) thus I want to get a pair of US that can also be connected together to form a dual bladed lightsaber.

Aside of the already designed for double bladed sabers here, can we couple 2 regular sabers( through the open coupler adaptor)?

The diametre of the 2 sabers have to match , obviously  but does any one could recommend me 2 nice sabers that could connect?
(yes Deep I'm looking at you XD)


I have a pair of Maul Force FX but as usual the LED sting is half dead and you don't do retrofit anymore (T_T)
I was looking to get a similar handleling( not too wide in hand) and a quite warrior look to it.

My character is a Grey Jedi, someone that walked both sides in search of the true form of the Force, so I thought of 2 War gladius( a silver and a black)
 that I could put together.
Also for that purpose, maybe taking only a AS color for the blades +Lee filters to get that incredible lime green color that I tottaly love, could be one of the best choice?

Thanks guys

Post by: James Casey on May 08, 2013, 03:09:17 PM
The v2 Initiates, Aeons and Dominixes can all be coupled together with their special coupler.

All other 'sabres can - so far as I know - be coupled together - Bellicose to War Glaive, Prophecy to Graflex, Standard Issue to Liberator and so on.


For balance, matching 'sabres will work best. A ying/yang approach with an Aeon and a Dominix will be fine, but if you pair an Initiate with a Malice, that'll throw the weight way off the coupler, which is probably where you want it.

Even a relatively even pair like a Guardian and a Consular could be off balance.

Might I suggest a pair of Shocks? A very nice hilt, and by all accounts easy to handle. Or, I really like the Dark Standard Issue and it makes a fine staff when paired (plus it's cheap!)

I'm trying to do an updated colour chart including all the forum colours, what colours they can flash, and what colours they can flash from.

I'm assuming, for example, that Emerald Green and Dark Violet Amethyst offer the same flash options as Consular Green and Violet Amethyst - but I don't know for sure.

So, the forum colours I know about are:

Sentinel Yellow
Bane's Heart
Pyrestone Orange
Hot Pink
Emerald Green
Dark Violet Amethyst

The top three are covered in the existing chart (For example, yellow will flash orange and silver, and is a flash option for red), but I don't know if there any new combinations with the existing colours, or even if there's any forum colours I haven't picked up on.

All help gratefully received!

Hi, I want to order a saber with DVA and FOC in BH (the chart shows this is possible). Does anyone know if I have to add $5 for the BH too? For a total of $10 added. Or is the additional $5 in requisition charges enough to cover the DVA and the BH FOC?

Thanks. This is my third US, but my first forum colors order.

EDIT: Nevermind, I read back a few pages in this thread and the question was answered: I will add a total of $10 for both DVA and BH FOC.

I am interested in ordering a replacement MLS unit to upgreade a saber. US says the buckpucks should only be used for LEDs requiring 1000ma. I am interested in the Bane's Heart color specificly. Is there going to be any compatability issue using a 1000ma buckpuck with this MLS?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

All of the LED's used by Ultrasabers function with the Buckpucks they sell.  Fire Orange and Blazing Red can be overdriven safely to 1000mA.  This has been verified by other sites as well. 

If you purchase an LED from a different supplier that also sells 1W and 3W LED's, the 1000mA Buckpuck sold by US may be problematic. 

I have Buckpucks in 3 of my sabers and Bane's Heart is in 2 of them.

I remember hearing a while back that the forum colors were being tweaked here and there with the intent that they would eventually be offered as standard colors. For all I know, that might be true for the most part, but I have reason to believe that this isn't the case for the color I desire most, Sentinel Yellow.

Earlier this year, I sent an email to ask if, whenever they released a consistent SY as a standard color, I could send in a non-MLS compatible saber (with SY as a forum color) to have its color swapped out for the new "official" yellow. Deep wrote me back, and along with his responses to my other questions, he said this on the subject of SY:

Quote
We don't have ant plans to offer a standardized yellow color on the website.

I was a little sad to hear it for fairly obvious reasons, but I also found that there were some fantastic silver linings. For one, I know that I can get SY in a non-MLS saber without any concern about what it might cost to send it back in, which otherwise would probably have resulted in me just waiting forever and never actually getting the color I wanted most.
On top of that, though, I realized that I kind of like the idea of yellow always being kind of special.

I'm pretty embarrassed that it took me four months to realize that this information might be of interest to anyone else, but I hope that this is of use to someone.
If you've been holding off on a yellow saber, now's as good a time as any to finally go for it!

Has anyone tried, or know if US does custom 3-color sabers? e.g. instead of the regular RGB set up, you get RBR, where there are 2 very differently tuned red LEDs in there (e.g. one regular one at 13 ohms). That way you could possibly create something like BH, a deep red, BP, and other variations. So instead of mixing RGB, your saber has 7 shades of red and blue (mostly red, in my example).

Just wondering if this has been done before. :)

I have not heard of this being done in the past.  It never hurts to ask though.  Shoot them an email at info@ultrasabers.com and let us know what you discover.

I tried searching for the answer to this but could not locate. I am assuming that since the DVA is just a tweaked VA, you can get Red with a DVA FoC. Anyone know if this is correct? If it is, has anyone seen it to say if it looks good or not?

IIRC, everything on VA for FOC is the same for DVA.  Since DVA is more of a Bluish Purple, Red would look great.  It is a great contrast effect.  Now I will caveat by saying I have not seen it in person, it is just my opinion in dealing with Blues in the past.

DVA is VA with added resistors on the red lead to make a richer blue color.

It is written elsewhere in this thread I think, but since I confirmed it with Emory I thought id note it here.

if you are ordering an MLS in forum colours the same process applies. So you select silver (since that has the +$5), choose your other options, add $5 req charges and add to the comments field what forum colour you want it changed to

Nice@Sky. Good pictures. I'm kind of interested in EG at the moment. Me and my bro want some green sabers but he wants CG. Is EG still that pasty color or does it really depend on what blade you get? We will probably both get standard mids like always since we don't duel hard or much. For EG, still get SRD? Might do this for an Overlord still. Color choosing is hard for me. Lol. Same with saber choosing.

They don't really have a nailed down, consistent color mix - otherwise they would be available on the regular site.  I know the forum colors are available as defaults for any Emerald saber though, so maybe you could try emailing the folks at Ultrasabers to get the values they use.

When you connect your saber to the obsidian software it allows you to select a set color box which is preset, they are very close to what the original colors are including the forum colors...can't stress enough to watch the video emory posted about emerald driver and he takes a second to actually show this very box

Hi Kal-El, I did watch the video, but the box I saw in it looked like a normal windows colour selections box, not a list of basic and forum US colours. Still, since I can't play with the colours until my sabers arrive (due Friday), I'll take your word for it.

But... I just opened up MS Paint to compare the edit colours list with the dialog box image in the video at 6:45 and it look like the same list of colours to me.

Forum colours are not consistent enough (as in SY can look gold or more lime green, etcetera) to be offered on the website (or maybe too confusing, in the cases of DVA and some others), so only people on the forum know about them, let alone how to order them.

I'll probably be able to do a video review of the software sometime soon,  as I just got my Manticore and want to do some color changes. But it would be alot easier with a four channel...the color boxes are just that preset colors that represent the standard colors you could have...you select the one you want and then select test color (so you will need a saber connected) and this will turn on your saber to show you what the color selected looks like when lit up, it also will show you the number values for rgbw and rgba respectively.

(I have only read like 7 or 8 pages though). It says on the page "these units currently fit into the Bane, War Glaive, Dark War Glaive, Arbiter, Dark Arbiter, Consular, Archon v2, Bellicose, Shock LE, Dark Shock, Manticore, Overlord and Raven.". So I cant buy a hilt from TFCC and use the LED there?

Red and green make yellow

What is TFCC? You can order a sentinel yellow led unit to put in your ultra saber. The emerald LED units are designed to work with the emerald driver.

Ah, thanks for the clarification! So would I add $5 for a forum colour then?

Greetings!

I am considering letting the will of the Force have sway, and getting another grab bag, with the only stipulation being Pyrestone Orange (and maybe a covertec wheel) I noticed though that the colour pricings seem to have changed! ALL colour choices are between $5 and $10 (Premium colours being $10) and I wondered what that would do to how to order a Forum colour on a grab bag?

Any thoughts advice?

Same rules order the most expensive color then add 5 US dollars in requisition charges then specify Pyrestone orange in your order

It seems like Adegan silver is the only color available for aditional $5(?) for both LED module and modular LED module.

edit: are there any fysical differences in the housing for the Emerald-drive compared to the ordinary LED/Modular LED-drives?

Oddly enough, I'd asked in another thread about this.  The answers I got pointed to yes, so I went ahead and placed the order tonight by selecting arctic blue, adding the 5 requisition charges and then requesting pyrestone orange in the order comments.  If you're not in a hurry, I'll share my own results, and anything I hear from Deep (who I'm pretty sure is in charge of active orders and shipping).

In my opinion I would say that sentenal yellow looks best with the ultraedge hevy grade blade. In the standard hg blade sy will tend to look More green at the tip in the ultraedge the colors seem to be More evenly mixed
As for foc its only avaible with silver witch to Me looks More real or true to canon

I have orange on my yellow blade, so that should be an option. I thought red was as well - I may be wrong.

I agree that ultra-edge is the better option for a yellow blade - at least in my opinion :)

Has anyone out there gotten definitive confirmation about how to order these colors now? I read through the previous poars but they pertain to grab bags.

I want to order an MLS unit in DVA. Do I order an AS unit and add $5 making the total $45? Or do I order any MLS unit and add $5 making the total $40? Or is there some other procedure now? I guess what I am really asking is how much these forum only colors cost now and what do you need to do now to order them.

Thanks

For the MLS unit, you just need to select a color (I usually select the one closest to what I want, but I doubt it matters) other then AS and add $5 in requisitions to the order with the color you want in the comments for a total of $40.

I've seen a few mentions around the forums (and occasionally on certain menus when customizing saber options) of a Hot Pink color.
Could pics of this color perhaps be added to the original post? Or is that particular color no longer available?

Right but you would also need to choose one of the premium colors like adigan silver.
And for a deep blue ask for dark violet amethyst it's very much like an indigo

How can I go about ordering this color?

Which saber are you going with?
Here are the ordering instructions from the first post:

Quote
First - When you are making your color selection, you MUST choose one of the "Premium" 5$ extra Colors. Such as, Violet Amethyst (VA), Arctic Blue (AB), Sunrider's Destiny (SRD)

Second - There is a $5 ADDITIONAL charge for "Forum Only" colors.  Purchase a quantity of 5 (so $5) in requisitions charges from here: [url]http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm[/url] ([url]http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm[/url])

Third - After you have made your selections and are ready to check out move to the checkout page. Here you will find a small box labeled "Order Comments", specify IN HERE that you would like to have the color chosen changed to W/E color you write in the box.

The closest saber that resembles her's is the Phantasm V3 Double Blade.  I wasn't sure if that would be an option with that particular saber.  I would like it to also have sound but, again, not sure if they can do that.

You can order a Phantasm V3 with sound here: http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/sound-phantasmv3.htm (http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/sound-phantasmv3.htm)

You can also request a forum color on any saber.  Be warned though, they are only available by special request because there is color mixing involved and the results are not 100% consistent.  You may get a really nice yellow color, or it may have a green tint to it, or it could start out yellow close to the emitter and turn more greenish towards the tip of the blade. 

One way to guarantee a consistent color is to go with the emerald driver.  It is a costly option but you don't have to worry about getting a bad color mix.  You would not be able to get the Phantasm with sound though as there is only enough room in the hilt for either sound or emerald, not both.

Is there a way to mod 2 Catalyst with Sound (Emerald) to connect or would I have to create my own mechanism?


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.

You could connect them with one of the couplers US offers here: http://www.ultrasabers.com/category-s/87.htm (http://www.ultrasabers.com/category-s/87.htm)

Just stay away from the V2 couplers.  Those are for older sabers and would not fit the Catalyst model.

I have a question: when adding the $5 extra charge for the Requisition Charge, the description says:

"Do not add this to your cart unless you've been told to do so by Ultra Sabers Staff."

For the forum colors, would I still be able to add the $5 regardless of the description or how would a staff member contact me?


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Molina00 on September 15, 2014, 10:55:58 AM
You can add the requisition charges to your cart regardless if you have contacted the staff or not. 
I think contacting them is more for if you are having a saber upgraded where you would need a price quote.

I don't contact the staff when I order forum colors.  I just add the $5 and put a note in the order comments what it is for.

My preference is VA in UE and DVA in standard. UE tends to blend the colors more for the mixed LEDs.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Ziran Le on September 22, 2014, 09:45:51 AM
Generally, UE tends to "lighten" the colors up a bit, or to make them look more "pastel."  It tends to make some colors brighter in appearance as well which can be helpful.  I don't have a saber with DVA (yet) but I bought my wife an Aeon LE V3 in VA with an UE mid blade, and it looks...pink.  Still not a bad color and not quite as pink as Hot Pink clearly would, but in UE it doesn't look like Mace Windu's saber color.  Several people have seen her VA blade in UE lit up at night, and EVERY single one of them has said, "oooooooooh, a PINK lightsaber!"

I picked up a few extra grab bag blades last month and most of them were UE mid.  From now on, I'll only order standard mid grade blades with my sabers, as I prefer them.

Post by: Ziran Le on September 22, 2014, 12:37:53 PM
That's the way I would go, Yiggy.  Be aware though that the HG standard blade will mute the brightness of the blade just a tiny little bit, and it's A LOT heavier.  I don't know if this is your first saber or whether you are experienced at this, but unless you are going to do some serious, hardcore dueling, the HG may be overkill.

Personally, I prefer the midgrade due to the weight and the overall "feel" of the hilt with the blade in.  In swings faster, feels better and more maneuverable etc.  But my dueling has only been with my wife and neighbors and the contact is fairly light.

Yeah, it is actually my first blade. Although I am planning on heavy sparring I'm also planning on combining it with freerunning/tricking. A HG would probably be harder to handle than a MG during high paced fights with flips and stuff, but then again I might land a few heavy hits. Not sure what to go for, maybe the MG is a better choice?
Any thoughts?

You could order a heavy grade blade with your saber and add a mid grade grab bag blade to your order.  You can get a clear (regular) mid grade blade for an extra $13.

I was under the assumption they are usually 36", but I got a 40" one once and I have seen others say they got other lengths.  In order notes you could try specifying if you want 32" or 36" and see what happens.

Okey. Not sure if I'll add a grab bag blade, depends on if I can afford everything. Living in Sweden, shipping adds a bit to it... x)

There are many examples of these colors available in the forums, try using the search feature.  Or, just go back to the first page of this thread.

Bane's Heart looks more pink as it is, I believe red mixed with resistored blue.  DVA, I believe is the opposite, blue with resistored red mixed in.  Neither is a "true" purple, in my opinion, but neither is VA which also looks a bit pink.

Are you wanting pink?  If so, there is a "Hot Pink" forum color that should be right up your alley, but Bane's Heart is very nice.

What exactly do you mean purchase a quantity of five for a $5 requisition charge? Does a requisition charge get added on for it being a forum exclusive color?

Hi, and welcome to the forum!

You have to add the requisition charges to the cart yourself. Each requisition is one dollar. You can find them at this link: http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm (http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm)

I didnt knew about the Hot Pink color. So now we got two pink colors. Bane's Heart and Hot Pink.
I wonder if anyone have got both, and could share some info.
BH is more redish pink, and HP is more neon pink.
I don't have a pic of my Manticore in BH (gonna have to fix that!), but here's my HP Initiate.



UPDATE:  PB pic removed.  :)

I checked out the requisition charges but not sure what they are for and that it said no to add to the cart unless someone from ultrasabers tells you to do so. Just a little confused.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Racona Nova on October 28, 2014, 07:30:25 AM
Requisition Charges are some kind of compensation for any additional work US has to do, e.g. converting a premium colour to a Forum Exclusive or for paying repair/upgrade work.

It's correct that you have to check first when you need them and how much you need. In case of Forum Exclusive colours it's already said in the thread that you need them, so when ordering such a colour (and writing in the Order Comments field what colour you want for the Requisition Charges), US knows what the Charges are for. But for other work you have to contact US first to know the exact cost. They will tell you how you have to pay - I didn't have to do that so far, but I'm pretty sure that you have to use the Requisition Charges for that.

I hope that I'm right with this :D

Anyone like Emerald Green at all? Been wanting one for awhile. Wondering if the color has gotten better looking lately. What blade does Emerald Green look best in?


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Racona Nova on October 31, 2014, 11:24:22 AM
Funnily enough, I initially ordered my Emerald Saber in EG. I know, it's a bit different when having it mixed via the Emerald Driver compared to the "normal" EG, but I loved it. I would recommend it in non-UE blades, I have the impression that in UE it comes rather close to SRD than a nice green. But these are only guesses since the colours from the Emerald Driver are always a bit different (more subjective) compared to the pre-configured LED modules. And I don't have the appropiate LED modules to compare the colours...

Banes Heart is by far my favorite color.  I have a Phantasm V4 staff with both blades in BH, its pretty awesome when you start spinning and that pink is just so bright.  My other sabers are DVA and VA, which are also pretty cool, but I think BH is definitely my favorite.  I may have to try a new forum color for my next saber, maybe Emerald Green...we shall see.

I'm curious and want some opinions. If I want a golden yellow colored blade, like amber lights on cars for turn signals kind of yellow, or construction vehicle lights kind of yellow. Should I go sentinel yellow, silver with color discs, or fire orange?


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Zren Tobas on February 07, 2015, 01:03:13 AM
Probably silver with Lee Filters then if you want that kind of yellow. Use like 2 medium straw filters I think is what I tried once and was a nice shade of yellow


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: TateSkywalker on February 09, 2015, 12:09:08 PM
Ok, thank you. I could always order an amber led from the custom saber shop and install it if that doesn't sauté my golden yellow blade need. I will try the silver with lee filters first then. Hopefully the filters won't dim the brightness. Much appreciated :)

Shouldn't be an issue. Email Emory info@ultrasabers.com. He can walk you through what you need to do.
It's a small upcharge for forum colors, but so worth it to get the color you want.

No it doesn't. It's only a $5 upcharge from Adegan Silver. So worth it.

I wanted to know if there is a color that is more or less closer to yellow. From what I saw there is no yellow options and SY looks more green than anything. I was looking at a few reviews and saw that fire orange was as close as it got to yellow,but I'm not sure if it just looked that way because of the camera.. Is there maybe an actual yellow color option to choose from that i missed? if there isn't what would be the closest to yellow?  :)


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Racona Nova on May 10, 2015, 11:43:40 AM
If you want a really nice yellow but no SY (FO is a real orange, it just looks like yellow because of the camera as you said), then the only reasonable solution would be the Emerald Driver - either R+G or the full 4-channel RGBW/RGBA Driver if you also want other colours.

Thanks for letting me know :) But I think i'll just get one simple color because I think the emerald sabers are a bit too expensive.. I'm little disappointed though because they have a yellow illuminated av switch but no yellow blade option :l


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Racona Nova on May 11, 2015, 10:55:23 AM
The problem with SY is that it's still experimental and thus, not consistent like other mixed colours (VA, AB etc.). Once it's been optimized it'll be more consistent throughout most of the setups - you'll always have a little flaw from time to time, but much less than at the present time.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Molina00 on May 11, 2015, 10:58:33 AM
It is possible to get a really good yellow out of SY, but there is also a chance of ending up with a greenish-yellow LED.  A cheaper option would be to go with Adegan Silver and buy a Lee or Roscolux filter book.  There are some really nice yellow Rosco filters that I like to use.

Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Dauntless Seven on May 21, 2015, 05:59:58 PM
Yes.  Instead of ordering BH ask for Hot Pink instead.  James has posted some photos of the slight color differences between the two.  He calls it Barbie Doll pink.  I think that it is more like pink bubblegum.  Either color is sufficiently striking pink.

Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Dauntless Seven on May 24, 2015, 09:00:47 AM
The UEMG is the best with UEHG second choice.  However it really depends upon personal preference as some will side with the standard MG blade.  To further clarify the pink color difference.  BH can illuminate a pink-magenta-rose while the HP is a neon pink.   The main color down the blade shaft is similar but the cast off light hue is different.  :)


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.

Thanks.  Light point to you.

Can anyone confirm if they've now done away with the "extra" $5 required for a forum color (above the $5 already required for premium colors)?   I saw that mentioned a few pages back somewhere, but wasn't sure if that was official or not.

Post by: Racona Nova on May 24, 2015, 10:33:19 AM

Does Sentinel refer to anything specific in the SW universe?
How about Sunrider's Destiny?  If it weren't for seeing pics I would not have been able to guess what that color looks like from the name.

Bane is a Sith from three books of the Extended Universe of Star Wars who started the Sith tradition of Rule of Two where there can only be two Siths at a time.

Those books in order are:

Path of Destruction
Rule of Two
Dynasty of Evil

Sentinel Yellow refers to Jedi Sentinels that wielded yellow blades.
Sunrider's Destiny refers to a unique aquamarine lightsaber crystal.
And "Adegan" refers to a commonly used lightsaber crystal.

Bane's Heart... Who's Bane?

Blasphemy. Bane is THE Sith. More specifically the Sith-ari - The one that will reform the Sith by destroying them. I think he came to power in about 1032 BBY. He's the reason Ki Adi Mundi said "the Sith have been extinct for a millenium". Not so, he just wiped out all the competition and then took on Zannah as his apprentice. Bane had a special crystal in his saber known as Bane's Heart. (you won't often, if ever another, hear of a saber crystal that is named) I'm not completely up on the lore, so points for info assists, but the Bane's Heart crystal was an exceptionally powerful synth-crystal. I was forged by Bane's will and power in the dark side, which was considerable, making it far superior to average blades. It is said that the blade it generated was so strong that it could break lesser saber blades.

Jedi Sentinels were one of the three options in KOTOR.

Jedi Guardians were the more martial of classes- all about the Lightsaber combat.
They wielded blue Lightsabers.

Jedi Consulars were the more cerebral of classes - focused more on various Force Powers.
They wielded green Lightsabers.

Jedi Sentinels were the middle ground, in between the two.
They tended to be the intelligence side of the Jedi, working in the shadows.
They wielded yellow Lightsabers (sometimes Saberstaffs)

Yes I got Hot Pink on my last saber and it's a great stunning bright pink color! Bane's Heart on the other hand is much further towards the red end of the scale. Also a great color, but I personally wouldn't describe it as "pink" at all. So if your niece wants pink then Hot Pink is definitely the one to go for in my opinion.

I took a photo to compare. Bane's Heart at the top and Hot Pink at the bottom.

Nah don't be silly! The notion that pink, purple, etc are "girly" colors is so old fashioned. All the colors look great on lightsabers. Hell, I have a staff in Hot Pink / Dark Violet Amethyst and it looks epic! I don't own a "pure" Bane's Heart saber but I often set my Emerald to the Bane's Heart that UltraSabers preset for me. It's a very nice color indeed :)

Old logic from my days playing paintball. Never underestimate a player with a pink gun. They may just like the color, but you can't assume that they aren't just so badass that they don't care what color the gun is.

Bane's Heart is a great color. It does lean more magenta than pink, but I classify it as hot pink. I had Hot Pink (forum color) for the FoC that originally came on my Emerald Mantis. I was not impressed. That was a girly pink.

Order Adegan Silver. Then go over to parts and order $5 worth of Requisition Charges. Then when you check out, put what Forum Color you want in the Order Notes section.

Although, it might be $10, because the dropped the price of the AS by $5. I'd ask Emory to be sure on price, but the process I stated is how it's done.

Nah don't be silly! The notion that pink, purple, etc are "girly" colors is so old fashioned. All the colors look great on lightsabers. Hell, I have a staff in Hot Pink / Dark Violet Amethyst and it looks epic! I don't own a "pure" Bane's Heart saber but I often set my Emerald to the Bane's Heart that UltraSabers preset for me. It's a very nice color indeed :)

I have an Emerald and would like to set it to Banes Heart. What are the settings for it?

Check out this thread: http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=17602.0

It has settings for most colors, you will just have to divide the numbers by 255 to get the percentages.

Close. Take the %s as a decimal (i.e. 65% = 0.65) and multiply by 255.

Not presently.  The colors available for the Tri Cree LED are the primary colors of red, blue, green, orange and silver/white.  Emory has said that orange and white show the most difference in lumen brightness.  :)

Unlikely. Since Forum Colors are made from mixing 2 LED colors out of a 4-LED cluster. Either RGBW or RGBA. These also usually involve adding a resister to one of the colors.

The easiest way to describe them is:

PO = R + A

SY = R + G

AB = B + G

VA = R + B

SRD = G + B(w/ resister)

BH = R + B(w/ resister)

DVA = B + R(w/ resister) [assumed]

HP = R + W [assumed]

ETC.

With Tri-Crees, 3 of the 4 spaces in the cluster are all the same color. RRR, GGG, BBB, WWW, AAA.

Hope this helps.

I think it's just part of their process. That way the builder sees the added line item and knows to read on. With this much money being spent on high-end toys, you want them to get it right.

And It really depends on what hilt you're looking to get. I've seen two variations today. One has AS as a standard color (no upcharge), the other has AS +$5. If your hilt specs AS as standard, you'll need to purchase $10 in Req. Charges. If it has the +$5, then you'll only need to buy $5 worth.

Hope this helps.

First choose one of the add $5 colors (Arctic blue, Sun Riders Destiny, or Violet Amythest ) finish up your saber and add it to your cart. Then go to the  parts menu and choose parts and accessories find the $1 requisition charge and add 5. or follow this link
[https://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm][/url]

Then in the comments box at checkout simply tell them what color you would like.

Hope this helps.

You don't bother at all! Especially when this is your first saber it's very important to ask whatever question you have so that you're doing it right. After all, it's quite a bunch of money you will spend :) And DarthBoneTD did a good job in explaining how to order a forum colour, point for that!

Blade Option:UltraEdge Heavy Grade

Post by: Dauntless Seven on January 07, 2016, 12:41:22 PM
Hi Clatter Tatter.  The total amount for purchasing a Forum Color is $10.  You would have to first choose one of the mixed $5 colors such as Violet Amethyst or Arctic Blue.  Then get an additional $5 in requisition charges.  Clearly indicate in the order comments section that they are for the Forum Sentinel Yellow LED.  You have to be a Forum member to access these colors and the general buying public is not aware of these bonuses.

So you have done everything correctly and the above was just a detailed walk through for other members.  +1 point for you.   :D

So am I to assume these 5 forum colors can be ordered at any time, so long as you follow the three steps listed on the front of this thread? And if I wanted a forum color as the main blade color, could I still have another color for flash on clash? For example, an emerald green blade with a sun rider's destiny flash?

Hi.  The Forum colors are a mixed blend and are not offered in Tri-Cree.   :)

This combo I am not sure of.  On the FoC option chart the Emerald Green as the main color is matched to the SRD.  Therefore the two flash color choices are silver and AB.  I think the EG and SRD would be a good but subtle combo.  I have the SYD and AB flash and I really like it.  There is a noticeable difference between the two colors.  You would have to check with Emory for approval on this one.   :)

As you know they are extremely busy so response to emails are not up to their usual speed.  Unless you are planning on purchasing your saber in the near future, it will be best as a courtesy to wait until that time and for their reply to your sent email.  The contact info is the one to be using for this question.   :)

I'm new to this and I was planning on ordering a couple of grab bag sabers soon, and I was curious I would be able to add Sentinel Yellow to one? If so, obviously there is a slight price selecting a normal color is $5 and a specialty color is $10, so I assume I would have to order a $10 upgrade color and the $5 reqs and put it in the comments?

Thanks in advance for any info you guys can give me!

EDIT: I did some more searching and went back digging through all the pages in this thread and it seems you do have to order a premium ($10) color and then ad 5 reqs and comment on a grab bag. Sorry for jumping the gun. I should have searched more before posting.

People have said they can't even tell a difference between MG and UE, and if there is, it's very slight. I wouldn't base judgement on Logos' photo, since cameras don't pick up the colors very well, especially in a well lit room. Unfortunately, the only thing you really can do is see for yourself in person what the difference is

Hi.  I recently addressed this question on this thread so suggest going back one page.  The total extra cost will be $10.00.  $5 for the initial order of a mixed color of VA, AB or SRD.  Then $5 in req. charges to request the SY Forum only LED.  Place instructions clearly in the order comments.   :)

I ordered my saber from UltraSabers almost three years ago, and have loved it! It's been a great saber... but I wanted a yellow blade, but didn't know there was such a thing as "forum only" color. So settled for Adegan Silver and have been using yellow gel filters.  :P

I ordered my saber with quick disconnects on the LED module, so hopefully I could swap it out later... would it be possible to just order a Sentinel Yellow LED module with Red flash-on-clash? How much wold that run?

Thanks!

I'd imagine you'd purchase the LED unit from here: https://www.ultrasabers.com/category-s/91.htm

And then do what you'd do for a whole saber (5x requisition charge and color in the comments). It'd be $45 ($35 LED + $5 'premium' color + $5 charge).

Correct me if I'm wrong though.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Racona Nova on January 12, 2016, 12:36:30 PM
No, that's correct. Quick Disconnects and Flash on Clash would add to the LED costs, though. So it's actually $75 instead of $35...

And make sure you choose the correct LED module ;) If you have a MLS, then get the MLS. If you have a normal module, get the normal module.

Yes, there are two ways to do this.

First, order a saber with the Emerald board.

Second, when you order Pyrestone Orange, put in the notes a request to make it slightly more Orange.  One of three things will happen:  they won't do it, they will do it, or you'll get what basically looks like Fire Orange.  If they do it, you'll be stuck with whatever they get you, and the reason these aren't standard colors is because they can vary from saber to saber, i.e. not all Pyrestone Oranges are the exact same shade of orange.  If you really want a specific color, get the Emerald driver and you can create exactly what you want.

There is a Blood Orange color that has been created, I believe JediXIX has it, and it is a touch more red than orange.

Wow..so is the Dark VA better looking than just VA?? Planning on getting a staff in VA, but want to get the right color ... I also reallylike the Sentinel Yellow!!

Better looking is completely a matter of opinion  ???  Personally, I don't care for either color.
But what exactly are you looking for as "the right color?"

Second, when you order Pyrestone Orange, put in the notes a request to make it slightly more Orange.  One of three things will happen:  they won't do it, they will do it, or you'll get what basically looks like Fire Orange.  If they do it, you'll be stuck with whatever they get you, and the reason these aren't standard colors is because they can vary from saber to saber, i.e. not all Pyrestone Oranges are the exact same shade of orange.  If you really want a specific color, get the Emerald driver and you can create exactly what you want.

There is a Blood Orange color that has been created, I believe JediXIX has it, and it is a touch more red than orange.

Points. I didn't look at it that way. I assumed he was asking about just getting a single color MLS.

Yes, but only with very few colours, Adegan Silver being the standard one. I think Fire Orange is also a compatible colour, but I'm not sure about other colours.

First, as a forum member who has acknowledged the rules thread (which you have, thank you), if you have a question, always feel free to ask it, no matter what it is. You're not being "needy," you have a question, and someone around here will have an answer. 

I'm 99% sure you don't need to tell them your forum name.  The "Forum Only" colors serve two purposes:

1) the colors are not "standardized" in terms of how they are created.  So, Sentinel Yellow from one saber may be a touch more Amber (making it look more Gold), and another may be a touch more Red, making it look a tinge orange. You might notice is you held two up side by side that there was a very slight difference.  Making the only available to forum members insures that people know that there may be color variations.

2) rewards people for being part of the saber community here, making those of us "in the know" a little more special.

Now, like I said, I'm almost positive you don't need to include your forum name if you did all of the payment steps correctly (which it looks like you did).  If it will help it your mind at ease though, shoot them an email at info@ultrasabers.com with your order number and forum name, and let them know that you wanted to make sure you did it right.

No need. I ordered the BH saber at the top of the last page and all that was in the order comments was the phrase "Make the LED Bane's Heart". No special confirmation, just 5 extra dollars, some time passing and a pink lightsaber.

If I order a saberstaff in a forum color, will they make the colors on both sabers the same? I would hate to order one and then for it to come with a slightly noticeable color variation between the sabers. (To clarify, the manufacturer eyeballs the color, so will they do the sabers together so the color is the same? Cause the forum colors do slightly differ from saber to saber.)


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Vivectius on February 04, 2016, 12:02:21 AM
They will make them as close as they can, and I've never heard of a forum color saber staff that had the blades be noticeably different when shipped (which is not to say that it's never happened).

If you want an absolute guarantee that the colors will match, get an Emerald driver in each (which I know drives the price way up).  Otherwise, trust in US to get it as close as they can.  Their QC is usually very good so I think it's safe to trust them to get the colors close enough that there is no noticeable difference.

Like the other guy said, they'll do their best get them as close as possible. They'll turn them on next to eachother as a test and then adjust if they need too I'm sure. That said, you may notice a difference as the batteries get lower, especially if one gets more use. That's not a big deal though because the same could be said of any color that is made with the 3-color LED.

They'll do their best.  My staff is in SY, and the two sides are different enough that you can see it side-by-side, but SY is notoriously hard to mix well.  If you're going to go SY the best-looking option (IMO) is to order AS and filter them with a Lee LED filter insert to a nice SY.  They'll be 100% consistent and the same that way. 

That being said, the differences are extremely minimal and I doubt they would detract.  If anything a slight difference in the two blades adds to the realism in some ways.  :-)

If one were to get the tri-cree AS and make disk color mixes, how would the brightness compare, in contrast to HP and SY?

Ok thanks, I didn't mean to impose on the conversation. I was just curious the difference in the shades of the two colors.  I would prefer a deeper  shade of purple as to a violet or pinkish color. Like a Mace Windu color, is that considered VA or DVA. Thanks for the input though I appreciate it.

You didn't impose (I don't think, I mean, I certainly didn't take it that way).  I was wondering what the "right color" was that you were looking for.  To answer your question, if it hasn't been already, the Dark Violet Amethyst is probably closer to Mace Windu's, although neither of the Violet Amethysts, regular or dark, are quite it.

Ok cool. I am just new to this all. That's what I was looking for just the closest color to Mace's. Both colors are great, I personally just wanted a more purpleish color for the staff. I think  I think I will go with the Dark Violet Amethyst!  Thanks again! Points to you!

Left and right won't light up without LEDs.  Generally, you can only choose the basic colors for the left and right LEDs, although if you sweet talk Emory enough in email you might be able to convince him to put mixed color LEDs in the sides, BUT...it's sometimes really tricky to get consistency or match those mixed colors, particularly the "Forum" colors, and yellow is, by all reputation, one of the most variable, so I sort of doubt Emory would go for it without a explicit acknowledgement that you get what you get, and no guarantees.  As it is, they're still so busy I doubt they have time for that much custom work right now anyway.

Now, you could get white/silver side blade LEDs and use filters to try and match, but if you do there'll probably be a lot of trial and error in finding the right filter or mix of filters.  I still haven't found a great match with LEE filters and an Emerald driver for yellow, which is too bad, because some of the LEE yellows give absolutely fantastic, rich yellow colors to the side blades.  MAYBE white/silver for all three blades, and filters, in spite of the dimming issue that is inherent to filters, and yellow is one of the few colors I'd want to try it on, as that's the color our eyes are MOST sensitive to, which would mitigate perceived brightness issues.

In short, I'm afraid I really don't have a perfect answer for  you, sorry.

The best way to do this would be to order the Renegade LE in Adegan Silver, then get TWO Lee swatchbooks.  Why two?  Because from my experience you can only make two filters per swatch, and you're going to need three.  :)

Once you get the swatch book, find Oklahoma Yellow in both and cut three filters, then filter all three blades with the same filter - you should get matching blades.

Here's a picture of my Dominix V4 LE in AS filtered to SY with the Oklahoma Yellow filter.  Its color-accurate.  As a side note - my original staff was SY as forum colors, and it was close but not exactly the same and one blade was slightly green at one end and slightly orange at the other.  The second was perfect, but the inconsistency in it has led me personally to prefer AS and filters for SY since.  I would also recommend the Tri-cree LEDs, the extra omph in the output helps the filters to brighten that little extra.  :-)

Karmack that is one awesome SY blade! When I do order my SY it will be this way, but where do you get the filters? Can you get them at a local store or do you have to order them? Just curious. And of course a point for that Saber! WOW!

I found the filters on the web.  Look for either Lee filters or Duralux (I believe).  Just google "Lee LED filters" and find their website, then order a sample swatch book.  I costs a couple of US dollars.  I do not believe you can get them locally, I don't think they have local shops anywhere.

To Tag off of Karmack. Apollo filters offers a free swatchbook. Completely free. You don't even pay shipping. They're pretty good quality and you can get two filters out of each. You can get one free book per email address. It's their way of trying to hook you on their filters. They pay shipping and send it to you (can take a few weeks). Although the Lee filters may be a bit better, those end up being $7 of shipping for me with the $.01 for the book itself.

To save me reading through 39 pages, I'm hoping someone can answer this.

Are the $5 "premium" colours just and RGB LED module hard-wired to a particular colour using just two of the LEDs?  So I'd be able to re-colour it myself if I wired in the third LED and adjust the resistors?

I've got a Sunrider's Destiny hiltbut I've only just got it so I'm a bit scared about cracking it open to check!

They are actually only two LED's with resistors to control the color produced by each.  You can find more information on them and rewiring suggestions/instructions in the Technical forum.

It's easy to check. You just have to pop the LED out of the saber and unscrew the bottom of the module.

That was the theory I used when I wired this up http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=27654.msg409171#msg409171


US use resistors to mix SRD, VA, DVA, EG, BH, HP, SY & PO . . . all I did was test a few resistors to the individual LED's in an RGB module (or RGBW, RGBA) and put them in line with a small dip switch at the pommel end inside the hilt instead of the emitter end. . . I'd collected all 14 LED module colours (and a few custom ones as well) and it was always fun to change them over with quick disconnects, but having many colours with an in-hilt switch is just so much more fun . . .

If you want some advice on these RGB LEDs, let me know . . . I've done some research and experiments, lol . . . . cheers   :)

No, all of these colors are made by mixing LED dies on a multi-color star mounting.  The Tri-Cree is three lower powered LEDs on a dedicated LED star mounting.

They are plenty bright, though.

Exactly this. The single LEDs are still insanely bright enough to look god when mixing. Except FO. Amber LEDs just aren't as bright.

The emerald driver is a single LED like these forum colors, so it will be as bright as a standard setup, single LED.

I wouldn't call it a "single" LED. It is a cluster of 4 (or 2 in some cases) single LEDs. RGB and a choice of Amber or White.

Yes, you can equip the double-bladed sabers with the Emerald Driver, too. But be aware that the v2 models (Aeon/Dominix/Initiate/Dark Initiate) can't be equipped with it!


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: Landen Se-Sentien on June 27, 2016, 01:56:46 PM
It is not listed as an option, so you may want to contact US on how to do it, but RN is correct, anything labeled v3 or v4 can get it. A v4 saber can also come with sound.

You can also buy two emerald sabers and a coupler to join them.

The Dark Prophecy that I ordered in BH at the end of the summer raffle got no urgent messages from US, and I just did the normal "pick a mixed color, add $5 req charges, add text in order notes" procedure...so if that's any evidence, it's still the same cost.

I'm quite looking forward to it.  Dark Prophecy, black AV switch, V4 sound, Consular pommel, BH blade.  It should look fantastic.  I've always felt that pinks (or magenta, for those that want to insist when it comes to BH) looks great paired with black.

So I just missed the previous sale - and I had "built" my sabre that I wanted - and one of the options was "Sentinel Yellow" in the drop down of colors.

Now I am going back through - and no longer seeing that option.

Forum Colors can also be ordered in single color MLS units for a $5 upcharge.

Not at all. When I was researching these sabers I probably bugged Emory out of his mind with my questions. I wanted to make sure I understood exactly what I was about to buy. I didn't know how to use the forum at that time, so I went data mining at the source.

Definitely getting an Arbiter in yellow now. Did not want to spend $400+ on an Emerald for a yellow, so its nice to know I can get the color another way. I would rather have more hilts with separate colors than have fewer hilts with color switching. Yellow was my main color in KotoR 1 and 2. The Scorpion would probably look great in the DVA.

Post by: Master Medwyn on August 03, 2016, 08:39:04 AM
The best way to do this would be to order the Renegade LE in Adegan Silver, then get TWO Lee swatchbooks.  Why two?  Because from my experience you can only make two filters per swatch, and you're going to need three.  :)

Once you get the swatch book, find Oklahoma Yellow in both and cut three filters, then filter all three blades with the same filter - you should get matching blades.

Here's a picture of my Dominix V4 LE in AS filtered to SY with the Oklahoma Yellow filter.  Its color-accurate.  As a side note - my original staff was SY as forum colors, and it was close but not exactly the same and one blade was slightly green at one end and slightly orange at the other.  The second was perfect, but the inconsistency in it has led me personally to prefer AS and filters for SY since.  I would also recommend the Tri-cree LEDs, the extra omph in the output helps the filters to brighten that little extra.  :-)

That's exactly how my AS Prophecy came out today!
I managed to aquire a Lee swatchbook today for free (which equals a lesser miracle here in the UK, I'd like to thank you again, Bob! :)), cut the circle out and now have a SY saber ;D
I have US's colour discs too but to get a SY-like colour I need to use the yellow and amber filters together. The loss of lumen is somewhat noticable through the 2 thicker plastic discs but with one really thin layer of Oklahoma Yellow Lee filter it's a beautiful and bright result on the blade. I think I can buy more AS sabers now and the "manual emerald" is here to play with :)

Thank you Karmack for the info, it settled my inner debate whether I should go for the forum colour on my next purchase or not.

First, check your batteries. Second, if you have an ultra edge blade it has a white lining that defuses the light more evenly but tends to mess with the color slightly. I would suggest using a regular blade or a regular heavy grade. BTW, which color did you order?

A few questions.

1) How thick are the colour filters? Either US or Lees? I ask because I have an Archon v3 and the disc can't go at the base of the blade. I had assumed it could just go over the led module, but that was assuming we're talking about the paper thin lighting gels sort, Anything thicker than that I think definitely wouldn't fit.

2) If I don't got for AS + filters, what I want right now is a Sentinels Yellow Tri cree - does that cost $5 more or $15?

The Lee filters are as thin as paper. I just received my booklet of Lee filters and will be testing them myself. Eventually I'll probably do a quick review. I have the TRI AS to go with them.

1) What Bladewraith said.

2) Since Yellow is made by mixing two colors, there is currently no Tri-Cree Sentinel Yellow.  Your best bet is to go Tri-Cree Adegen Silver and find the filter you're happiest with.

Just to note, none of the forum colors are currently available in Tri-Cree.

1) US filters are effectively Tiddlywinks,
(https://mrchips.net/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/3TMXBG30.jpg?itok=06Nu-x41)

and are roughly .050" thick.

2) Yes to what Viv said. SY is a light combo of R+G.

$20 would be enough for 4 forum colors, assuming you picked one of the premium colors for $5 extra each as your blade color during configuration of the saber, like Arctic Blue, Violet Amethyst or Sunrider's Destiny.

Ooh. I normally don't bother with FoC, but I would imagine that since DVA is wired just like VA only with a heavier resistance on the Red LED, your only options are red or blue. I think GB would make a good FoC for DVA. In fact, it may be your only option.

I know that Guardian Blue sabers can have DVA flash on clash (not sure about the reverse though). This was confirmed to me by US yesterday because I have a back order reaper that I am considering having them do that instead of Tri Cree as currently ordered. 

Here is a post by JC that I found useful for forum color FOC options not included in Deep's chart.

http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=24691.0 (http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=24691.0)

I would really appreciate any opinions or insights on whether to sacrifice brightness of tri cree for coolness factor of FOC in the saber I have on order.  I also am wondering if not going with tri cree would have any measurable benefit to battery life since my saber also will have an illuminated AV switch and obsidian lite, which my understanding is suck up a good amount of juice themselves.  But then again I want my saber to be bright even during the day and be flat out blinding at night...so conflicted here...decisions, decisions.  :-\

As far as I know, its unlikely that your saber will ever be bright enough to outshine the sun unless you somehow master fusion and plasma energy and create an actual working lightsaber. Flash on Clash, to me, is better than the tri-cree option because it adds a lot of fun to duels, which along with training, is what I primarily use my sabers for. If youre getting a saber for display/to show off at cons, go tri-cree, but if its to be used, go with FoC. A compromise might be to get FoC with a buckpuck so you use all that energy most efficiently and the saber will be somewhat brighter while still having FoC.

I was just wondering, is there any specific reason why sentinel yellow is an option for other sabers but not for the stunt sabers? Like when you special request it, is it dimmer or something? Yellow has always been my dream color, but I don't want to sacrifice brightness at all.

Also can you request yellow in tri cree?
Thanks

It is what we call a "Forum color". Basically one only knows how to order them by going onto the forum. You can order SY as a preset color on Emerald or Diamond. For a $5 adder, you can get a standard LED configured to SY, you just need to make this request in the Order Comments field when you place an order.

Short answer: No. SY is a mix of Red and Green LEDs, which result in yellow. (Don't ask, it's some weird physics thing. The difference between generated light mixing versus reflected light mixing.) And TRI-Crees are all one color. So your only options are for colors that can be formed by single LEDs: Red, Green, Blue, White (silver), Amber (orange).

Hope this answers you question.

Ok, thanks a lot, that really helps.

Can anyone tell me about the brightness of SY, its obviously hard to capture in photos, some pics look very bright and vibrant and some look pretty dim. As I said, I love the yellow but would rather not sacrifice brightness. My other option is tri cree arctic blue.

The Tri-Cree arctic blue on my reaper is two blue leds and one green one.  Does anyone know if US sells a Tri-Cree with two blue leds and one red one?

Ok, I have my first saber order coming up, probably for two sabers, one being a Dark Standard Issue with Vertical Grooves and a Silver AV Switch, and the other will probably be a grab bag.  I am one of these crazy people who thinks it's a good idea to dual wield, both lightsabers and actual swords(long story). The Dark Standard Issue I am leaning towards FO or PO in for the LED.  Does anyone have a photo comparing the two?  I have heard the FO tends to wash out to a Yellow in UE blades.  Help would be appreciated.

Yes!!!!!!!!

There is an advantage to using li-ion AND buckpuck (yes, you have to have both) for any color, but even more so with the mixes.

You get a brighter, fuller blade.
In a mixed color blade, you will not have one color fade, so a purple blade will not turn pink or red until the very end of the charge.
You get that bright blade for the life of the battery charge, so your blade will not gradually dim over time.

SY is pretty bright. In fact, the only color that I've come across that isn't very bright is FO. The amber LED is actually capable of being looked at (I wouldn't recommend for long periods) without instantly burning your eyes. The other single color LEDs (R, G, B, & W) will actually cause pain to look at directly.

I've never had this. I always prefer UE blades, and the FO always comes out as a light orange. But as previously stated, FO is not as bright as others.

Adding to this...

I'm not sure about the Li-ion setup on stunts, but for w/ sound sabers, the color and sound are consistently powered throughout the battery life. Brightness doesn't taper off, it just reaches a point where there isn't enough power, and then just shuts down. But this is at least half an hour of continuous use. I haven't yet experimented with the V4 sound to test the battery life on Mute.

I'm delaying my DSI until I have a grab bag in hand first(the DSI may be a good gift to myself with my upcoming birthday in August), but it's good to know about the Fire Orange.  Not sure if I want to choose my color or go random.  Just not wanting red really, due to being a grey jedi.

Sabers always make great gifts to oneself. ;) I got an Emperor's Hand this year.

I keep reminding people unschooled in the OC; Luke had a red shoto. What matters is not the color of your blade, but rather the color of your heart. But if you're set against red, I think you can request "not red" and still get a random color. You might want to enquire about that: info@ultrasabers.com

I have no problem with the red as a color itself, but people do tend to see a red saber and automatically think Sith.  Few people are aware of Grey Jedi, so it makes sense to try and keep my character in tact by giving them no reason to think otherwise.  Especially when Disney went and screwed things up by basically making it so the EU doesn't count, which explained a lot of background info.

My complaint is that it gets rid of the rich history of both the Jedi and the Sith.  But, Disney has always been control freaks that want to own their franchises in full, though this is a little off topic.

Bane's Heart has about 60% less BLUE in it than Hot Pink, so it's basically a "warmer" pink. Here's a color grid for making the most well known Ultra Sabers colors:

(http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f332/computingguy/UltraSabers/IMG_5692_zps2kcpxbqe.jpeg)

I don't have any pics of an LED in hot pink, but the background of my profile pic is a good representation of Bane's Heart.  Throw some more blue in there and it becomes a brighter, yet cooler hue of pink getting a bit closer to white, like this pic of Jedihunter's saber staff:

Hope that helps a bit  ;)

Give me some time, I'll try to remember to get a shot of my HP Dk Ini.

Also, how many of these colors are equally, if not better in combos with the Amber LED?

Plus, IMO, the best SY in 100% on both R and G.

Yeah I should've mentioned that this is only meant as "guide" and there's a lot of range you can move around in to create these colors.  This is a basic recipe for those colors, so you could mix'em up according to your "taste". 

The RGBA can definitely create better reds, oranges and yellows.  Honestly, it adds a bit of vibrance to any color on the spectrum.  I prefer the RGBA now on any saber unless I am specifically wanting a cooler color gamut or white, obviously, where the RGBW can be superior.

I really wish there was a way to get a 5-color MLS, then we would have to choose between RGBW and RGBA. I think the added cost would easily be justified.

I don't think it's a cost issue as much as it is an issue with optics.  The more diodes you have on an LED star, the tougher it becomes to maintain brightness and color mixing.  Beyond that, it starts to become much less energy efficient.

I'm in complete agreement though, it would be nice if we didn't have to choose!  Amber and White both have major benefits when color mixing...

Damn, I forgot these were all on Photobucket.  I'll see about fixing this thread, so people can see the pics again.

Just as a reminder until we get it fixed, here's a rough description of the colors.

Sentinel Yellow - Pretty much exactly what you'd expect, with some variation from greenish hues to more golden ones.
Dark Violet Amethyst - VA but with more blue, so closer to an indigo shade.
Bane's Heart - Oppposite of DVA, it's VA with more red for a more magenta tinted blade.
Pyrestone - Deeper shade of orange compared to FO, it's a red/green mix with a heavy red influence.
Emerald Green - My personal favorite, a greener version of SRD that gives a nice mint green color.

You could always look down the emitter when the saber is off.  If the LED has three diodes, then you either have Tri-Cree Fire Orange or Pyrestone.  If it's only one, you have regular Fire Orange.

Select a premium color that already has +$5 in the description (AB, SRD, VA) then add 5 of these to your cart as well:

https://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm


In your order comments copy and paste the following:

Blade color: BANE'S HEART. Requisition chargers have been added to order for "forum only color" BANE'S HEART please.


If you are buying more than one saber just say which saber it's for. Make it as clear as possible even if you think you sound condescending so as to avoid any miscommunication.

I am sure its been already asked but i couldnt find it.. I was looking at the  pulse effect... in the ordering section i ticked flash on clash silver/white but what to choose for pulse if i choose red for example as a main colour i want it to keep with that colour theme but i want the pulse to be obvious so what do i pick ? cheers in advance people :)
I like Bane's Heart or Hot Pink. BH is actually more what I call "hot pink" and HP is roughly the same color but with more blue in the mix. I think either one would look really good as a pulse from BR.

Is HP actually considered a "Forum color"? If so I can get some pics of it on here since Photobucket messed everything up.

Yes. I ordered one at the end of September. I don't have a solo photo of it apart from this blade plug shot. I'll see if I can get the owner to take a couple for you if no one else posts any.

Yes. Here are some comparison pics. The Hot Pink is the more purple-ish of the two. I actually have both, as seen in my sig, and out of curiosity I ordered my Emerald Mantis in BH with HP FoC.

Are you asking how to do this, or simply commenting?

BH is simple enough, but I think the closest your going to get via Forum Color is Pyrestone Orange, which is like an orange-red. If you were looking for something deeper, you may have to shell out for an Emerald/Diamond board.

It is a lovely color. My personal bias leans toward an even mix of R + G. The forum color MLS is slighting tipped to the green side. :-\ But, the Emerald/Diamond mix of 100%R + 100%G is beautiful.

Personally I've had the best luck with SY using a silver LED and inserting an LED filter.  Lee Swatchbooks, either Yellow 101 Lee Yellow 765 or Oklahoma Yellow 767.  All three are awesome, 101 is the most "lemony" with 765 and 767 shading a bit more toward golden.  

My Dark Catalyst is a Tri-Cree AS with Lee 101 filter:

(https://i.imgur.com/vn6GLoi.jpg)

And in this picture the Dominix V4 LE is sporting AS with the Oklahoma Yellow 767, next to an Initiate V4 with Fire Orange.  

(https://i.imgur.com/pUty4za.jpg)

My very first saber was a Dominix V3 with mixed Sentinel Yellow, ordered as a forum color.  It was not bad.  I actually had two (they were a staff).  One was nearly perfect, the color was virtually the same as the Yellow 101 filter.  The other one, though ... the mix was just a tad off, and it greened a bit at the end and oranged at the hilt.

My Emerald saber does a pretty good yellow, too, but I can't get it all the way to true yellow.  Its always just a bit more golden than I like.  

And just for fun...  those same Dominix V3s with yellow LEDs with filters.  I don't recall exactly what colors they were anymore, those sabers and filters have been gone a while, but we managed to get a really neat orange and aqua-blue color out of the yellow.  They were a bit dim, however...

(https://i.imgur.com/Oyhehfq.jpg)

Filters can be fun!  There's a great thread on Lee filters around here somewhere...

Your Dark Catalyst with the Tri-CREE AS and Lee 101 Filter look amazing! Probably better in person, I imagine. The Dominix wasn’t bad either but the DC is definitely my favorite.  I may look into those filter options. Thanks Karmack, point for you!

Hello and welcome to your favorite new hobby.
As for your question, pulse is only available on emerald and diamond sabers which you can change to whatever combo you like via the UltraSabers Launcher on your computer, half the fun is playing with colors on these. If your just going for premium sound or lite soundboard they have the compatible colors in the pulldown menu on the website or use this topic: http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=3652.0 that includes some of forum colors. Don't forget the $5 requisition fee for the forum flash color if you go lower than emerald setup 

Silver flash is good with almost any color

With Red Blades, I personally like a silver or yellow flash.
With Blue it looks good with most of it's compatible colors with the exception of Artic Blue imo.

As for pulse, play with the timing and colors in the launcher. If you go that route and still need advice, come back and ask.

Hope this helps

Hey folks,

Got a problem:  the last few times I've gone to the US site to order something I haven't seen the Customer Comment box where we would normally ask for the forum color we want, or add our forum name for raffles etc.  Am I somehow absolutely blind and just missing it?  Is it somewhere else now?  Has the procedure for ordering Forum Color sabers changed?

Post by: Edon Bluewolf on September 16, 2018, 11:07:24 PM
DVA with a blue dayblade is the deepest blue I have been able to make.  The blue of the dayblade filters out almost all the red making it a dark blue color that is very nice.  When I ordered the DVA saber from US, I asked them to try and make it as close to Indigo as possible and they did a good job because I didn't want it too purple, I wanted indigo.  I guess you could try a dark purple dayblade with a GB LED too, I'll have to test that out but I suspect it will be a blue core with a dark outer purple tube effect.  The only picture I have readily available at the moment is my Tri-cree GB azure reaper with a blue day blade, and that too makes the blue richer and deeper (in real life it looks like the color of the aura in the second pic below).

(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4333/36503115011_b447363e43_z.jpg)
(https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4335/35806113754_d88e7163c0_z.jpg)

US Guardian blue is essentially what others call Royal blue leds, there is no darker blue readily available that I know of.  In fact I got a "deep blue"  Quad Cree saber from the other guys and it turned out to be exactly the color of US Guardian Blue.  It turned out to be a little brighter than the single LED GB from US but not quite as bright as the Tri-Cree GB from US, because from what I read the focusing lense used is better suited for a 3 LED arrangement but I digress. 

So you are just left with adding other colors of light or filters/dayblades to tweak that Guardian blue.  The available colors of light are red, green, amber, and white.  Of course white is not going to darken anything, adding green to blue actually brightens it towards an arctic blue color, adding amber to blue makes a lavendar that tends to pink the more you add so I'm sure that isn't what you are looking for.  So all you got left is red which will make it indigo then purple then violet as you add more.   You can always use filters to get a darker blue but you will get just that, a darker blue as it will affect the brightness. 

So again I was personally surprised and happy with the affect of DVA with a blue dayblade to get what I consider a truly deep blue.  If I remember I will try to post a pic of it but I have a pretty hectic day tomorrow and the the rest of the week looks like it won't be any less busy for me unfortunately.

Edon, the saber with the day blade alone looks sick! Looks like it's just one piece and at first, I thought you turned it into a single bladed staff.  That day blade does make give ti a really nice dark blue.  Great comparison and play with colors.  How's the Indigo on your DVA look?  I just gave you a point in another post so can't do so now but I really want to!

So here are the two options I was talking about (the Dark Sentinel in DVA with blue dayblade and the Azure Reaper in Tri-Cree GB with dark purple dayblade):

(https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1867/44075580264_7d77bbbc1d_z.jpg)

Although it may be difficult to discern on camera, both give a nice darker deeper blue than GB alone.  Both options look very similar in color actually with the Tri-cree being fuller of course.

Here is a little guide to help answer some common questions.
This thread can also be used for any and all discussion of said topic. So please feel free to ask any questions you might have.

([url]https://i.imgur.com/htGXrIK.jpg[/url])
Dark Violet Amethyst - DVA

([url]https://i.imgur.com/gGsPxb2.jpg[/url])
Bane's Heart - BH.  Amazing colors and so bright in light, the orange was my favorite

([url]https://i.imgur.com/MeBQqAm.jpg[/url])
Pyrestone Orange - PO.

([url]https://i.imgur.com/4428B3b.jpg[/url])
Sentinel Yellow - SY.

([url]https://i.imgur.com/AaCMOgE.jpg[/url])
Emerald Green – EG.

These are the five "Forum" colors. They are all variations of colors available to the public.

(Someone please correct me if i'm wrong.)

DVA - Made by tuning a VA to a more indigo.

BH - I think it's made by tuning a VA to make it MAGENTA. (Sorry for the caps but you can argue with me all day about what color it is, so if you don't believe me google magenta.)

Pyrestone Orange - Made with red and green courtesy of an RGB led (much like Violet Amethyst is made with red and blue).  Blood Orange, Red Orange, w/e you want to call it, it looks like FO with more red.

Sentinel Yellow – Another mix of red and green with an RGB led, but this one turns out yellow.  Golden Yellow, really IDK how i'm supposed to describe it and not sound biased.......because i am.  It's just yellow and it's awesome.

Emerald Green – A mix of green and blue, essentially a modification of Sunriders Destiny with a higher resistance on the blue diode to give a greener hue.


These five colors can be ordered very easily.

First - When you are making your color selection, you MUST choose one of the "Premium" 5$ extra Colors. Such as, Violet Amethyst (VA), Arctic Blue (AB), Sunrider's Destiny (SRD), etc...

Second - There is a $5 ADDITIONAL charge for "Forum Only" colors.  Purchase a quantity of 5 (so $5) in requisitions charges from here: [url]http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm[/url] ([url]http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/requisitioncharge.htm[/url])

Third - After you have made your selections and are ready to check out move to the checkout page. Here you will find a small box labeled "Order Comments", specify IN HERE that you would like to have the color chosen changed to W/E color you write in the box.


===============================================================

Please remember that the pictures of these colors do not do them their justice.

Other than Bane's Heart, the other 3 are so similar to the other colors that it just overwhelms the camera.

I just got my 2nd Saber.. it was a $75 Mystery Box. It came today and I'm finally home and just opened the box up. It's a beautiful Sentinel LE v3 w/ Premium Sound. The saber is beautiful, it looks a lot like my Apprentice LE v4. As you can tell the Hilts are different sizes as the Sentinel is about 3 inches longer.

I was ecstatic to get a saber with Premium Sound... it's pretty amazing. I was a little confused by the color, it just looks "white" or "clear"... is this the Silver color or am I missing something?

I am expecting my Dominix v4 Blazing Red w/ Lite Sound Stunt coming tomorrow.


Here are pictures of my first 2 Sabers, I am hoping that I could possibly add color to the "white/silver" Sentinel LE v3 one day... I am pretty new and need to learn more. I wouldn't mind taking the soundboard out of the Sentinel and putting it into my Apprentice if possible... but I'm tired it's been a long day (up since 5am and it's almost 9pm hehe).


Here are some pictures, the Consular Green on my Apprentice (no sound), and the Mystery Box's Sentinel LE v3 (White/Silver).

Hi Jayryan, That would be the Adegan Silver color option. It isn't a forum color but it is a very pretty color nonetheless.

and congrats on getting sound from a 75 box. I have a sentinel V4 LE and Apprentice LE V4 both in BR (no sound) from the 75's. Glad to hear about your amazing score!

that pretty much hit it on the head. the only thing I want to add is that because it is white light, many different color filters (US's color discs and LEE filters) can be used to make any color you want. basically, a poor man's emerald/diamond as someone so eloquently stated a while back.

Thanks GF! I was just checking to make sure I wasn't missing something lol. I noticed that the inside of the sabers have a wrapped plastic, sort of like the material used to tint windows. Has anyone ever tried putting tinted plastic wrapped inside their sabers?

I am wondering if it would give off the appearance of the sabers from the MMORPG PC Game Star Wars The Old Republic. Here is a picture of my absolute favorite saber I always duel weld in the game, The blue and black was probably my favorite at least and a huge favorite, as well as the yellow/black combo since both were rare. I may have some time this weekend to try it out in my green saber, I do not think I will try it in my Dominix, although the red/black did look great as well in this video game.

I'm not sure about tinted blade film, but many of the other guys have "Day blades" that have tinted outer shells. most of them look pretty nice.

Any film other than white cellophane will dim the LED. Day blades are recommended if you’re trying to change the physical blade color.

I am not to familiar with the day blades. I have a lot of old window tinting film, from 20%, 50%, and 70%... I may still experiment with a small sliver stuck inside the center of the cellophane. But yeah, obviously tinted cellophane which is basically all window tint film is, blocks sunlight, 20% is the dark stuff you see on limos (illegal in mostly every state for windshields/front windows). 70% is a lot lighter. I would probably try a small piece of 70-80% to see what it does, I am hoping it will dim the middle but still illuminate all around. Meh, worth a shot hehe.

I will have to look around for the LED's, I think I posted the cheapie discs I found online... they look like left over parts from an old board game lol.. but I won't judge until I try them.

Day blades are basically colored tube blades that are made to make your blade the correct color in bright lighting, such as direct sunlight or the bright lights of a convention center. They can be used to change the color of a saber, but I wouldn't consider them a primary method as they're quite pricey compared to different color LEDs or filters.

Even then, I've seen Day Blades that still can't beat the power of direct sunlight hitting the blade so there's that as well.

Well, the idea of the day blade is, even if you can't see light filtering through the blade, it's still the color you want it to be. IE: with a red day blade, your saber will have a red blade no matter what.

It is AMAZING!! It is by far the most comfortable of my sabers. (The pre-mentioned Dominix V3 LE, Aeon v2, Sentinel and apprentice LE V4, and my Prophecy V3) the lower choke point fits my hand perfectly and is an absolute beauty.

Heavy-grade clear

Post by: scifidude79 on October 28, 2018, 05:25:49 PM
Heavy-grade clear

In that case, the color is probably coming through accurately. VA and DVA should be in the lavender/lilac range. If you look at the color example on the first page of this thread, you can see the color it should be in the cast-off closest to the blade. Though, I don't own the color myself, but I do have regular VA and it's on the pink side. I'd imagine DVA is in the same range, only more to the blue side. You're not going to literally get the color indigo from LEDs unless they weren't very bright. That's how light works. Most "indigo" LEDs I've heard of for sabers are described as being lavender.

Now, if you had an ultraedge blade, I'd have said that might be affecting the color.

I have a VA but with an UE midgrade blade and it looks really purple. I have a HG blade that I can try it on but it's not an UE so anything that it attaches to, looks like a tube within a tube so I'm not a fan of it

Hi, I bought a saber a few years back and was wondering if I could change the color of it. I saw that you can but color discs but the led color should be silver and I have purple. I have a INITIATE LE V3 body can I change the led to silver. If anyone can assist that would be great.

you can change the color if you have quick disconnects, but it will void the warranty.

Post by: scifidude79 on October 28, 2018, 10:52:17 PM
If it's a few years old, it's no longer under warranty. Nor will changing the color with quick disconnects void the warranty, even if it was still valid.

Your options for changing it to silver are numerous. The two quickest/easiest would be to either replace the LED yourself or send it in to Ultrasabers to do it for a fee. To change it yourself, you can simply order LED unit from Ultrasabers and do the work yourself. It's only a couple wires to snip and solder together. Whether or not you have sound may complicate things, but not overly so.

Hello, do you have any background with soldering?  The Initiate/Aeon/Dominix sabers have really short wires connected to all electronics so you literally have to cut the wires from the battery pack to the LED to get the unit out then it would be wise to solder a QD into the positive and negative cables within the body so that the LED unit you're going to replace it with will be plug n play since it comes with a QD but keep in mind that there's limited space within these types of sabers

If you don't have any background with doing that, then I'd contact UltraSabers and ask how much they'll charge to do so for you.

I haven't had the free time to try the tint inside yet, but maybe tomorrow.

I did order a set of discs for my Sentinel in A. Silver... I just really wanted to pop some color in it.

I think the Orange disc came out the best, the pictures look a little better taken in the dark with a black background... the blue and purple come up rather light, I forget which color now but one looked like bubblegum hehe.

I think I am going to stick with the Orange disc mostly, the green was too light, it looks nice but I think the orange really pops the most.

I did order a LEE Book, maybe tomorrow I will use the ol exacto knife and cut them them to size, the book was cheap and has a huge amount of colors.. I just haven't had a chance to cut one for the inside of the hilt yet.

Anyway, here are a few pictures... You guys know better than I that unfortunately once they hit the light/sunlight they fade.. the purple looks great in the picture and holds up well... Not sure if the slides from the LEE book will be any "brighter".. but I'm pretty danged happy I ordered the discs for $4 and they came within 2-3 days from TX to NJ :)

Yep, you can get them right off the US site which is what I did for $4 under the Parts Section and they ship FAST. The pictures I posted above are a few of the discs I've tried...

No I do not believe so if your saber came with a pre-existing color that emits. The color discs are generally meant for the Sabers that come in the Silver (white looking) color. My $75 mystery box was the Sentinel w/ Premium Sound in the Silver color. Since it lights up somewhat bright/white you can disconnect your saber by loosening the retention screw on the hilt, then taking out the saber and drop one of the discs into the hilt... I would imagine that if you have orange you most likely cannot change it :(

But if you like your saber I am certain you will buy another eventually, I got 3 and I love them all.. I am going to save up for another soon. I would really like to get one with the Clash/Flash option, and the Diamond/Emerald Sabers (high end) are beautiful.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: scifidude79 on November 02, 2018, 07:54:18 PM
Color discs will alter the color, but not likely to anything that's going to look that great. Your options would be sending it in to Ultrasabers to change the LED color for a fee, or doing it yourself/having someone else do it for you. There are many options as far as changing it, including a white LED with the color discs or Lee filters. Then there are RGB LEDs, which can be used with some kind of controller to change the colors. Though, anything you or someone you know does to change the wiring will void your warranty.

The other option is to buy more low end stunts in different colors, or white with the color discs. As alluring as the mystery boxes are, those and the grab bags aren't meant to be a primary purchase option. I bought a few grab bags a couple years ago but haven't since, as I now prefer to know exactly what I'm buying. You could buy something like an Aeon or Sentinel, Standard Issue, etc. with a white LED and the color discs. I bought a Dominix LE V2 last year in white with the color discs. The discs are a lot of fun, though I usually leave the saber white. However, some of the colors you can get with the discs and a white LED are really nice looking. (others leave a bit to be desired)

My mystery box was my Sentinel w/ premium sound but the Silver color and I just got my discs today, the orange and one of the blues look pretty cool, but they don't compare to the real thing, my Apprentice in Consular Green is my favorite. I got a LEE Box today as well and haven't had a chance to try it any of the slides out. Nothing beats the real deal though, they seem to not fade off. My green saber lights up my whole room I love it in the morning hehe.

Post by: scifidude79 on November 02, 2018, 08:38:21 PM
Anything the light has to pass through will dim it slightly, so the filters of course do dim the light. And, yes, Consular Green is super bright. Tri CG is insanely bright. :)

Also, a quick follow-up to the orange with color discs question, don't waste your time. I tried color discs in my tri FO Dominix, and none of them do much. FO (or tri FO) is just made from orange LEDs, there's no color mix to make it orange. Putting filters in it can alter it to slightly different and dimmer (and ugly) shades of orange and yellow. That's all they can do. And, I tried all of the colors. That's because the color discs filter out most of the color data except for the color you want. White light is a combination of all light colors, so you can filter out all of the light except a single color. However, orange light is just orange, so there's no blue, for example, to display. So, putting a blue filter into a saber with an orange LED won't give you blue, it will just give you a muddier looking orange.


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: jayryan84 on November 04, 2018, 10:38:12 AM
I tried a few different LEE Filters, by cutting them to roughly the best size of the color discs. Then simply placing them in above the hilts light and placing the saber back on.

(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/johnrburn84/IMG_20181104_120014741_zpscmfc9ksq.jpg)


One of the purples came out really great actually. Medium Purple.

(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/johnrburn84/IMG_20181104_115848081_zpsceyfa1in.jpg)


I had one of the blues looking pretty nice, there are quite a few colors inside the LEE Filters book and using and exacto knife (or razer blade safely) to cut them to size to fit in the hilt.

This one was called "Electric Lilac" or something lol.

(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/johnrburn84/IMG_20181104_120259734_zpsj6v22b9h.jpg)

I tried another blue color and it came up very faint, like that "bubblegum" type color.

There are quite a few colors to choose from in the LEE Filters book, I've only tried about 4 or 5 different shades... As I mentioned the Purple looks really good, but as for everything else I haven't had much luck yet... I may mess around with the greens a little later.

They compare pretty similar to the discs, I personally would be a little afraid since these film shades are very thin compared to the color discs.. the inside of the hilt where the light emits can get rather hot. I am not sure if it would get hot enough to melt one but I wouldn't want to risk it.

I am hoping to try a few different shades of blue since there are so many. I don't think any of them are going to look amazing but they certainly do add some color...

Here was another blue... named "Double TC Blue" which did not look too bad, similar to "Light Blue".. not much of a difference from 2 other shades of blue.. but there are a whole bunch more.

Hi jayryan84,

Lee filters are designed to be used over long periods in theatrical lighting. Here are the Maximum heat values each type of filter can withstand.

The maximum operating temperatures for LEE lighting filters are as follows: Polyester Filters 180°C, High Temperature (HT) Filters 220°C and Glass Dichroic Filters 371°C.

Chances are you will be safe, though over time the filter material may fade and begin to wrinkle up. More info about the Lee Filters can be found using the link below.

https://leefilters.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/23048-what-is-the-heat-resistance-of-lighting-filters

Obviously dedicated LED colours and LED modules from Ultrasabers will be better. 
(Hope this helps and I studied Theatrical/Performance Arts to be a stage/lighting technician and used these filters a lot.)

Post by: jayryan84 on November 04, 2018, 11:35:04 AM
Very nice to know... each filter slide has an information card with Wavelength NanoMeters or something, I am not too familiar with any of that. I just ordered a Stunt Initiate v3 in Violet Amethyst since I wanted a real "Purple" saber that I hope to possibly do some custom work to.

The next (5th) saber I get will most likely be something on the higher-end in Guardian Blue. I love every saber I've gotten from Ultra Sabers, I just started mounting my sabers in different spots on the walls as they make great "night lights", at least in the morning when I don't want my bright ceiling light on but still want to maneuver around the room hehe. I'm going to save up for The Chosen One I think... or maybe put it on my X-Mas list :)


Title: Re: "Forum" colors and how to order them.
Post by: jayryan84 on November 08, 2018, 06:39:28 PM
I received my 4th saber today, a Stunt Initiate v3 in Violet Amethyst. It's pretty beautiful, I plan on customizing the hilt a bit at the shop we have at work.

I put it next to my Sentinel that I toss in the color discs and LEE Filters in, I put in the Medium Purple LEE Filter and put them next to each other.

I love both sabers (probably my Sentinel more so as it has premium sound and came from a $75 grab bag hehe).
I noticed that the colors are pretty close but not the same, I believe I had another LEE Filter that was a closer match. But obviously my new Initiate in VA is brighter (maybe not as bright as the Consular Green). What I really like about the Sentinel is that the saber appears thicker/darker.. it just does not emit as bright of course.

Just thought it was a cool comparison, I will probably throw back in the Fire Orange disc or another LEE Filter now that I have a saber in VA (purple).


(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/johnrburn84/IMG_20181108_201227751_zpsv8jyu6au.jpg)

Initiate Hilt is on the bottom right... a few inches shorter than the Sentinel Hilt on the bottom left. You can tell they match up pretty well, but once they hit the air/light that is when you truly see the VA shine :)
