Armour Dyes Colour Suggestions.

Considering it looks like the Armour Dye system won't change to something with a bit more choice/versatility any time soon. I thought it wise to start a thread to at least compile a list of colour combinations that the player-base in general actually want to see.

For the sake of a big wall of text we'll imply that each colour has a light / medium / deep / dark variation. I'll also start with the most obvious...

Black + Red
+ Blue
+ Green
+ Yellow
+ Orange
+ Purple (the 2/3 missing variations)
+ Gold
+ Silver
+ Pink (personally I hate to add this one but for the sake of completeness)

White + (all of the above not already available)

Gold + Silver
Silver + a sort of gun-metal grey.

Anything else?

Give us the ability to mix and match colors as we please. It isn't too much to ask.

All they have to do is provide all the colors as primary and secondary and let us load the colors into a dye module as we please.

I'm in total agreement tbh, the current dye system is silly beyond all sense and reason other than as a money making exercise. The idea behind the thread is that if they don't listen to the up-roar they've created with the system, then we can at least suggest viable colour combinations in the hopes that they'll at least make it through instead of something trully awful like pale olive green and pink.

I fixed it for you.

Make no mistake, this system was analyzed and analyzed and metric'ed and analyzed again to extract MAXIMUM profit out of the playerbase while the company can hide behind the "it's optional, so it doesn't matter" shield.

I wanna be able to dye the armor sets that you can get in the cartel market....ya its cool to have the original color but what if half your guild gets the same armor? you have no way to diverse yourself....for an example ive seen tons of people with the revan armor getting it soon cuz i liked revans armor alot and ive been with the white on red color scheme since the dye system came i was hopeing it had a dye slot wich it does not so getting cartel market armor dye slots would be awesome

If they want to make money at this, there is a BETTER system....2 or 3 dye slots per armour piece that can only load a PRIMARY - SECONDARY - TRIM.

That or give the players that can create DYES the ability to mix the colors themselves through a system similar to the Matrix Cube(which in itself is another matter of controversy). Where the Dye makers would have to purchase a special dye maker or purchase from another player that has the ability to make the DYE Converter (cybertech??). A great way to boost the GTN economy some more.

Just a thought

"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Black and Dark Green

Black and Neon Green

Yes, let's get some neon colors in the mix.

All dyes should be trainable for crafting, and not bind on pick up after crafting. PERIOD!!! I will NEVER get a Black/Black with how things are now. Bioware utterly ruined dye's for me doing this to Black/Black. I always had black dye in my other MMO's and never had to pay ridiculous prices for it. It is utterly infuriating.I pay 15 bucks a month and can't get a little dye pack because it's 2+ mill on the GTN when it should be learn-able to craft. NOTHING in this game is worth paying 2 mil...NOTHING.
