Jesus Christ - I seriously hope they're not planning to use any colour other than white or pale/decent looking blue for the lighting...certainly not that ******* horrid green or purple!

I really like the purple lighting scheme Maybe they're planning it to be multi-coloured, too? That would be neat.

I really bloody hope not.

What's wrong with what they have now for the lower part of the tower? It looks ******* fantastic.
