Okay - i know that there are a ton of posts on .pats out there already but i have another question.

 It relates to the fire ratings somewhat but is a general question on creating .pat files.  I have tried and tried to mess around with creating a new .pat file with a repeating number or letter - numbers/letters are of course created using lines).  i have gotten really close but nothing really is working the way that i want it.

 Has anyone else attempted this?  I would like to hear everyones thoughts/comments...

I haven't had much luck with making my own .pat files, especially with complex shapes like numbers and letters. Now as for the graphics of highlighting fire rated walls, I have tried a few different things in the past.  Are you trying to get a fill pattern that your rated walls will take on when shown in a life safety plan?  I have used a Filter in the past to override the cut pattern graphics of all walls with a given Fire Rating value, but I haven't seen a fill pattern that works in the way you describe here.  I wish I could be more helpful.

Good luck!
