Hey everyone!

I wanted to let you know about a known issue that is coming with our Opportunist Bounty Pack this week. There is a new color crystal in the pack called the Advanced Yellow Blue Crystal. When you preview the item it looks very yellow and blue, very. However, when you equip the item, depending on the lighting the yellow can look a lot less distinct.

We wanted to make sure that you guys were aware of the color differential in case you want to "chase" after the item. We will also be placing this on the known issues list.

Thanks everyone!

All of the crystals actually look different in "real life" versus in the preview screen. It would be nice if we had a better or more natural lighting system in place for previews, for dyes as well as for crystals.

Other than that, thanks for warning us

Does it work better if you turn bloom off in the graphic settings?

This crystal will forever be known as the Swedish crystal, awesome but a bit pale around the edges.

Eric, ALL Cartel Crystals preview extremely poorly. The lighting effects in the preview is bad, the grey-blue background makes things look indistinct, and bloom is disabled within the preview which for whatever reason completely alters the colors. Bloom needs to be enabled in the preview window if the client has that setting enabled, so that the preview matches the "live" version, at minimum. Ideally the non-bloom color of the crystals would also be radically adjusted so that they look half decent.

You know what would fix this issue? Fixing the preview screen in general because ALL colors look off.

I take it your CM devs made a bet that they could make a crystal even uglier than the orange-yellow?

Given that the "hot orange" crystal (which I think is amazing) is actually a red/yellow crystal am I going too far by hoping that blue/yellow will be a truly amazing GREEN?
