'This item does not support dye modules'

It would seem that Bioware has added a new unnecessary restriction. Before the recent patch it was possible to dye white and green items by adding them to an outfit and subsequently dying the outfit. It allowed you to make cool combinations with simple outfits like this.

This is a completely unnecessary restriction, please fix it.

However, since this new patch launched they have made this impossible. Now, when you try to add a dye to a grey, white or green item to an outfit you are unable to open the dye tab. Instead you get this: https://i.imgur.com/SiXZczt.png

And while this is not necessarily a big deal, it is a pointless and annoying limitation. Especially since a lot of these vendor items had some of the simplest designs in the game, enabling you to – for instance – use them like the inner tunic of a robe. Such as this: https://i.imgur.com/FLCJNcf.png

However, you can still match colours to outfit with these items. Now, you just can’t colour them for whatever reason.

I hope that clarifies what I’m taking issue with.

This is not good.
There is NO reason to why this should happen, and I hope this is something they will fix ASAP

Are you saying that greens no longer do the color match thing?

That cannot be true.. as I have characters with green items in their appearance tabs which in fact looked normal yesterday when I logged in to them. I guess it is possible that they changed code such that any item that cannot be dyed will not color match... but that runs counter to how it has worked in years past.. so it needs to be verified not just taken here-say.

I have not done a new appearance tab since the patch, so I cannot confirm what the OP is saying. I'm guessing though it is either a misunderstanding about how it works, or there could be a bug. I'm going to do an appearance setup today and check this... as we need more information then has been presented so far.

Green and white from what I have gathered, whereas you could dye these items by adding them to an outfit before and then add the dye to the outfit: https://i.imgur.com/SiXZczt.png

I can confirm this. I got a white item dyed on my Imp-side character too, but it won't let me do it with a new character now. The items have an 'This item does not support dye mdoules' text and won't let you add a dye.

Agreed. I'll have to check the next time I log in. That would be a really weird thing for them to do, since color match works even without dye modules. Something for me to ponder at work today...

I'm confused. Are you trying to add the dye to the item, or just color match?

Oh.

Since when were greens dye-able? I thought they could not be modified. I think it's working as intended.
