Lame.

I've used white vendor gloves for various outfits, as basic gloves just aren't in abundance in the game's inventory past the starter planets. Guess I'll have to stick with Kreia's and Vao's gloves now.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

My guess is that they still color match (need to confirm) but that the studio closed a loophole where you could apply a item that has no dye slot to a tab and could then apply dye after the fact (which I honestly NEVER do).

There have been a few things about appearance tabs that I think were "loopholes" in the functionality... like being able to apply heavy armor pieces to a light armor wearing character.... so this too may have been one of them and they closed it. I don't know why they would bother though to be honest as they have more important things to be working on... but again.. probably different studio team doing one thing vs another.

Thanks for that.. saves me having to go check.

See.. this change I am fine with as it fits what I think they originally intended a couple years ago when they rolled out appearance tabs. But I agree that it does not seem like something they HAD to go fix. It probably has been in their bug queue since they released appearance tabs and it finally reached high enough in the queue to be assigned to staff to act upon.

This I"m not fine with. I don't think it was a loophole I think this is a bug. They didn't have the time to add dye slots to the vast amount of green gear so they didn't, but since it could be dyed in the Outfit Designer it retained the functionality. (and somewhere along the way they did say removing weight restrictions in the OD was intentional.)

If being able to dye armor in the OD was a bug and they fixed it, well that's just asinine! The very thought that they would remove a significant quality of life feature that hurt no one, not even themselves when this game is riddled with damaging bugs that have been here since pre-launch makes my blood boil.

In fact, it probably allowed them to sell more dye modules. Fixing the bug (if that's what happened) actually hurts the bottom line (though, I doubt it hurts significantly).

Now I'm just glad that I didn't know about this thing that doesn't work anymore.

Was coming to post about this very thing. So disappointed that this has happened. I wanted to use the new Honorable General with a blue chest piece I've been using since launch.

No, he's saying that you no longer can dye them, either directly or by stamping a dye over them in the Outfit Designer. They *SHOULD* still color match. (but honestly, who knows, this patch's SO BUGGY, it'll take them months to take care of things)

Honestly, who are you(or anyone else) to say to me(us) how my(our) character(s) should look like? Some kind of authority?

Why shouldn't a Consular or Agent walk around in Heavy Armor? If someone likes it, more power to them! Besides, Heavy Armor characters have had this exact advantage since 1,0 really. They could wear EVERYTHING in game while Light Armor users could wear LA ONLY! How's that fair?

This would be a very bad thing.. Hoping it is a bug.

Calm down. I was stating my thoughts as to why I think they did what they did (and I also state multiple times that I really do not see the priority for them to change this) ... nowhere in this thread have I stated what you are accusing me of. Sheesh.... you need to relax and stop with the phony accusations. Your issue is with the studio for making this change.. NOT me.
