Overview[]

Armor dyes can be purchased or crafted. The purchased dyes have a very basic color selection. Recipes drop from enemies for creating various dyes, such as Purple, Azure, Red and so on. All colors have 3 varieties; Bright, Neutral and Dark.

Additional dyes exist, but cannot be obtained in the same way. The Limited Collector's Edition awards players 4 exclusive dyes. Black dye can only be created by GMs and white dye can only be created during character creation.

Usage[]

Sample Armor Dye Menu

Dyes are consumable items. Upon right-clicking them, a window with a ragdoll of the player, a set of 25 colors and a list of worn armor pieces (Head, Upper Face, Lower Face, Torso, Hands, Legs, Feet) is shown. The player can then preview the appearance the dyed armor piece will have.

Upon clicking the [Accept] button, the armor immediately displays the new color and the dye disappears from the backpack. The dye isn't consumed if the process is canceled.

Crafting[]

To create dyes from recipes, look at the ingredients for the dye. This will require a combination of pigments and a bonding agent. These are sold at Crafting vendors. Next, proceed to a Crafting Station. Drag and drop your recipe into the recipe slot window and if you have all the correct ingredients in your backpack, you can create the item.

All regular dye recipes create 10 dyes. Special dyes create a single dye but can be traded to another player.

Tips:

  1. To obtain a brown color, use Neutral Yellow or Neutral Orange.
  2. The closest to white you can get is the AFS Blue's top-right dye. It shows up as a extremely pale green.
