I have a different idea (pet dyes)

    How about a temporary dye that could be applied TO OTHER PEOPLES PETS and a PERMANENT dye the pet owners can use on their own pets.

    (and maybe the temporary dye is a fel only, flags the user type thing)

    A "one week dye" is hardly worth the effort, unless they drop like Sosarian Sap.

    Instead when the dyes are released I hope they will extend how long it lasts. Maybe even have the dyes permanent?

    I think that was the point of his post :) The bit about it being for other people's pets was meant to be sarcastic...least that's how I read it.

    Yeah, she's right. This was a "knee jerk" reaction to reading the release about "only the pet owner can apply to their boded pet" :wall: and the it will only last a week :loser:
    I mean, so what, it only lasts a week who TF cares who applies it, if it's only going to on my pet for a few hours of playing then wear off in the stables.

    I am about as excited about this as I am about the Melisandra Molotov Cocktails as a weapon for spawns.

    Sorry for the confusion, I'm better at speaking my meanings than they turn out in type.

    My "jist" is, hey, how about permanent, or 6 months worth of coloring?

    If it's only going to be a weeks worth, make the Sosarian Sap and a bundle of feathers for "tar and feathering" pets.

    Hmm, well if it was sarcasm then I didn't pick up on it.
    Of course sarcasm isn't easy to pick up on here, lol.

    But yeah, the dyes need to have their affects extended to a longer time if not permanent :p

    Great, even better make all dyes permenent.
    So now I can screw up people's little blaze cu and make it gray or something. :thumbsup:

    I hope there's a permenemt dye for owner's pet with limited color selection. e.g. leather dye tub color selection.

    Yeah, pet dye tubs would be nice. Make it a fifth year reward. Taming seems to take five years anyway. :bored:

    I mean come on, it's not like we're asking mongbats to drop ornies (that's the next thread).

    A forest green, black, gold, or Ruby Red dragon isn't going to effect game balance in PvM or PvP, so why so stingy with the duration? :coco:

    no pet dyes at all ... UO woll look lie candy-world

    everybody is thinking, hey cool, finally i can get my black dragon etc.

    but the deys work for all pets, so how will UO look after a while, pink, blue etc horses will be around, so llamas etc., do we really need that?

    UO that looks like toys r us? maybe the dev could implement barbie and ken too?

    or make a drogon dye, that would make more sense then purple horses
     
  9. First of all, I don't want someone else changing the color of my pet if I don't want it changed. Secondly, your description of "a few hours" looks like will be 168 hours of play time. For me, that will be about two months of real time.

    Is the 1 week 168 hours of game time or 168 hours of real time? i.e. Does the timer stop when you log off or stable the pet?

    It'd be like the reverse of PETA: throwing paint on people's animals, instead of on their animal skins.

    It is game time. The timer starts and ends when your character logs on and off - seems that stabling it will have no effect.

    What I am REALLY against is the TAG saying : "dyed".

    This is absolutely ridiculous for pets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I'll never apply whatever colour on any of my pets that would tag it "dyed pet"!!!

    Apart from that, and if they really implement this, of course it must be permanent (only removable with the toxin-bleach, just in case you make a mistake).

    And, it should be given as a pre-order reward for buying SA.

    Have you even read the original thread? Pink is not even a choice for pet dyes. It is not as though it is a tub and people are picking their own colors. ALL of the colors except white - which we already have on things such as white wyrms and cu sidhes - are dark, muted, desaturated hues. Yes, purple is an option, but it isn't lurid or pastel My Little Pony or even Violet Courage. It's like a black grape. There are no pink and cutesy colors here.

    As long as I can kill whoever flings crud on my pets, and regardless of facet, I'm up for it.

    My friend, I was typing a "snap reaction" to reading about the one week real world time duration.

    I was trying to emphasize that the time duration was to short, and point out the silliness of emphasizing who could apply dye to further emphasize that.

    I apologize about how it reads initially. It is easy for me to see how the original post can sound without the proper voice inflection - I should have added a "roll eyes" to assist the readers.

    I would change the first post, except it would have a chain reflection on responses, and break continuety of the thread.
