Thanks for that info. Personally, it looks more like a bronze than a gold.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, mind you. What I don't like is that I was checking and it only has a single color slot. It's all red, or all green or purple or whatever you choose. At least the material showing on the side of the dress should've been the secondary color, not primary too (IMO).

Do you like the actual gold colour? It’s so different to the other gold shades in the game. I find it repulsive (as you can probably gather from my description of it)

One thing I forgot to add is when you match the top with white pants, they go the colour of that dirty yellow crafted dye that looks a bit like spew. Which would explain a lot if they are using that yellow as a basis for the gold in the outfit.
As far as I know, nobody in their right mind uses that dye because it really is a disgusting yellow (not sure what they were thinking when they created that dye). I tried crafting some once to see if I could sell them, no one would buy them (cant blame them). Not sure what I did with them.

I can only imagine that sales aren’t going to be as good as they could have been on this outfit if they’d used a better yellow base for the gold or if they’d just left it unlocked so we could apply any colour.

I know there will be some “strange” people (LoL) who will like it, but many won’t. The easiest solution is to remove the “locked” dye colour for those parts of the outfit and let us use the yellow we want to give it a real gold affect.
I wonder how hard it would be to unlock it?

That’s the thing that really pissed me off. I checked the gold in the preview and their own picture before I purchased it,
At first glance I wasn’t going to buy it because I didn’t like that the colour was locked.
But after some thought on how I could use those gold parts with out outfits, I decided to buy it. Only to discover the gold didn’t look anything like the preview or the picture.
I was already on the fence as to wether I’d buy it. So when I discovered the gold wasn’t what it should be and I wouldn’t get it to match the other “gold” on other outfits, I was so annoyed.
That’s why I came straight to the forum to warn other players so they wouldn’t fall for the same deception.

In future, please allow us to modify ALL parts of the outfits with a different colour, I don’t particularly want a gold skirt or gold plated breasts. The skirt being locked to gold means 50% of the outfit is unusable for me.

Edit: decided to buy it. And now completely regret it.

WARNING TO OTHER PLAYERS BEFORE YOU BUY THIS
EVEN THE GOLD ISNT GOLD, ITS SHINY GREENISH POO BROWN COLOUR (like baby poo).
IT’S NOT EVEN THE COLOUR OF THE OTHER GOLD ARMOR ITEMS IN THE GAME.
THE GOLD COLOUR LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO THE PREVIEW SCREEN OR THE PICTURE ON THE WEBSITE.
ITS A TOTALL MISREPRESENTATION OF WHAT YOU ARE BUYING.

This means you can’t even mix and match with other gold items because they are different golds. And you can’t add a yellow or orange dye to the gold part to try and get them all the same colour.
All of this has totally ruined the whole outfit for me.

Therefore, because I was sold something under false pretences. I would like a refund of my cartel coins please and you can have back this outfit that showed so much promise, but has been a complete and utter failure in its execution.
Eugh. I was thinking of getting this but now I think I'll pass. At least your sacrifice is saving some of the other forum-goers/readers.

The festival dress is okay to me, the dull gold feels realistic, I can see people in this thread have already complained about not being able to dye the gold parts so I'll skip adding my rant to the pile, I'll just say I agree.
What I would like to see, however, is a version of this dress where the gold parts are SILVER. It would make it a lot easier to match with stuff.

Quick update for the article, both the Dashing Rogue Armor Set and Gambler's Luck Blaster Pistol were added to the Cartel Market yesterday. I've updated the article to reflect this.

The Festival dress looks very appropriately "Life Day" to me - very festive and appropriately colored (although I think it looks better with a darker red dye). The gold parts on the chest are very much like the gold effect you get on a lot of Christmas ornaments and wrapping paper.
It may not look that good after Life Day, but by then it will be time for a new outfit anyway. 🙂

While I understand you don't like it, I don't think stating "strange" is very nice if someone likes it. Everyone has a different opinion but w/e.

But not a mention of what the actual topic was, the horrible gold/not gold colour.....or the fact it's only primary dye....gold also isn't dyeable, and ofcourse, the biggest problem, it doesn't look like what was previewed.........
No Idea if people use these, but if so, here's my referral link

have to say I'm a bit disappointed you didn't fix textures on the Dashing Rogue set before releasing it
