4-3-1

there is 2 things that you must check:
- chart settings // check box "new bar when exceeded "
- data / trade service settings // " intraday data storege time unit :" must be 1 Tick

to me its seems 98 % the same that your chart

sorry that TV is on , to laze do make/upload new charts

Help! I can not get the Renko look I want on Sierra Charts even after changing the parameters above, which I did.

My NinjaTrader UniRenko settings are :
Open Offset=5
TickTrend=1
Trend Reversal=5

Here is a screenshot for comparison with the SC Custom renko set to 5-1-5 Time is within a minute of each other.

@longboat

My NinjaTrader UniRenko settings are :
Open Offset=5
TickTrend=1
Trend Reversal=5

It was long ago when I used NinjaTrader and UniRenko but try settings :

Open Offset=1
TickTrend=1
Trend Reversal=5

Keep Open Offset =1 and TickTrend = 1.
Change only TrendReversal 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.... till you chart looks good for you.

Sierra Chart uses different nomenclature for each of its Renko settings, so you must use different values to achieve an approximate replication of NT UniRenko's 5-1-5.

Try this:
Go to Chart >> Chart Settings
-set the Bar Period Type to Flex Renko
-use the settings 5-4-5
-check 'New Bar When Exceeded'

To color the reversal bar, add the Color Bar Based On Alert Condition study using this formula:
=OR(AND(ID0.SG23[-1]<ID0.SG22[-1],ID0.SG23>ID0.SG22),AND(ID0.SG23[-1]>ID0.SG22[-1],ID0.SG23<ID0.SG22))

Wow Thanks Tomgilb! That looks perfect even without adding the color change alert! Cool now I can switch and stop paying for NT. Thanks for helping out!
