Nixie number set

Sadly, Affinity Designer files are not supported on this forum. If you want the original Designer file, I’m hoping you can download from here - Share-facer-affinity - Google Drive.

In the Designer file, there are five layers for each number, so its messy to work with. :smiley:

You know you’ve lost your mind when you look at that last image (with digits all off) and you see a Minion standing behind it. :crazy_face: :rofl:

This is the Refrence I used to get started with this game. I think BradC added the 12/24 Hrs option.

Sadly I could not get the @bradtc 12/24 hours to work .I have to do things the Grunt way . My little head can only cope with one conditional per line . It needs a few more lines but if you are going to do this sort of thing you must be prepared to put in a few Hours .Thanks again to Rich @richiebee for the Beautiful Resources .

Yes, with pictures it is a pain… Here’s a “cheap” version of it… But just realized the glow effect does not really do it on the watch itself…

Yeah the Text Glow option does not work on a lot of watches.

btw - how they’re made… The Art of Making a Nixie Tube - YouTube

Looking good there @russellcresser. If you want the hours to be compatible with both 12 & 24 hour format, simply use the following transparency expressions in the hour images:

For the Hour 10’s digits:
0: $(floor(#Db#/10))==0?100:0$
1: $(floor(#Db#/10))==1?100:0$
2: $(floor(#Db#/10))==2?100:0$

For the Hour 1’s digits:
0: $#DTIMEFORMAT#=12&&#DhZB#==0?100:$$#DTIMEFORMAT#=24&&(#Db#-(10*floor(#Db#/10)))==0?100:0$
1: $#DTIMEFORMAT#=12&&#DhZB#==1?100:$$#DTIMEFORMAT#=24&&(#Db#-(10*floor(#Db#/10)))==1?100:0$
2: $#DTIMEFORMAT#=12&&#DhZB#==2?100:$$#DTIMEFORMAT#=24&&(#Db#-(10*floor(#Db#/10)))==2?100:0$

9: $#DTIMEFORMAT#=12&&#DhZB#==9?100:$$#DTIMEFORMAT#=24&&(#Db#-(10*floor(#Db#/10)))==9?100:0$

Then just ad a text element for #Da# with a transparency of $#DTIMEFORMAT#=12?100:0$

And I thought I’d have a go as well (stole @russellcresser little blinkers though :shushing_face: :laughing:)

Yeah @bradtc what I came up with is compatible with user preference. I could not get the double conditional to work. I just doubled up on the lines instead. Thanks for the Outline. Will have another go soon.
