    Question Dyed Spring Fairy armor: Is this what I am supposed to look like?

    I recently made a set of spring fairy armor and dyed it slightly differently than my other set. Usually it looks like the straps are pink (hey I'm not opposed, although I prefer the brick red that I used), but upon logging out and viewing the login scene, I noticed the color was spot on! See below:


    Pink
    ------------------------





    Red
    ------------------------



    Odd thing is, the color of the leggings is exactly right in both scenes, it is only the chest piece straps that differ. I've always had difficulty dyeing the spring fairy top, as some color combinations seem to show up with differing intensities (and hues, apparently). Is this a known bug? I tried searching the forums but could not find any threads concerning this. As always, please chime in if you have had this problem, or if it applies to other armor sets as well. Thanks!

    Yuck @ Abercrombie, haha! I would certainly hope this does not rank anywhere above "lowest possible priority" on Citan's list of things to do/investigate, I just found it perplexing. It also looks "not pink" in some dungeons, I guess? I'm not sure where else.

    I have noticed before that Serbule and Serbule Hills have a lighting scheme that makes some of my armor look different. It's been several months, but I used to have this metal breastplate (undyed) that looked white with a slight pink tinge in Serbule and red in other locations. (Or the other way around? Nah, pretty sure the lighter coloring was in Serbule. It was definitely different between zones.)

    Yeah, lighting, but shouldn't two pieces the same color have the same tinging problem?

    Unless they're different material, and even then it shouldn't be so dramatic.

    The color is always the same, but the lighting in the area makes it look different. The dye is applied to an underlying grayscale texture, and the part of the texture that's the "straps" has a slightly different shade of gray than the leggings, so non-ambient light sources show up at a slightly different shade. (Probably exacerbated by some outdoor areas having slightly yellowish or reddish light.)

    So it's an art issue, basically, due to how we added dye support. This suit of armor was made early on, before the dye-map technology existed, and it was retrofitted after the fact. It will probably never be perfect.

    If we ever have this armor set remade, though, we'll make sure that dyes apply perfectly.

    @Citan Thanks for the info! I had no idea colors were so complicated, but that does make a lot of sense once lighting is taken into account. It's almost like I'm a color-changing stripper or something!
