    Metal is a combination of natural and black pigment(i think), and off white is white combined with natural pigment too.
    I dont think u can get ice from plants.

    Edit: Ah... seeing the chart bellow, i see u call ·ice· all colours mixed with white. :p

    I honestly had no idea you could mix the staining dyes. *goes off to experiment*

    You can't mix the dyes, you have to mix them while they're in pigment form, then turn them into dyes :)

    Full details are here:

    http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/show_content.php?content=31012

    Found by following the link 'Staining (Dyes from Plants)' listed in the left hand menu of the main page under the 'Stygian Abyss' section of the 'Expansions' Menu.

    Someone tell me why I bother?

    You bother because you rock.
    And because not everybody needs to invent the wheel for themselves.

    Because you want people to be able to find things, and Stratics to be organised in a way that people can find things?

    Thing is, we're a bit slow sometimes, and we're sort of used to not being able to find anything (or maybe just expect not to be able to find things, so don't even think of looking) - and let's be honest, if you ask something around here you get instant answers from people keen to help, so it's taking a while to get used to the idea of working searches and navigable index pages... we'll get there eventually though ;)

    It's important to keep in mind that
    stratics is a very messy website with alot of information so it can be difficult finding what you're looking for, and most of the times the info turns out to be outdated.

    Which is why I've been knocking myself out for over 6 months to try to organise and update it. However, the new content isn't searchable by google, you have to use the index menus to find it.
    That isn't my choice, isn't my doing, and isn't within my power to alter.

    I guess I may as well give up. The current trend seems to be 'if it can't be googled it isn't there'. So basically, I'm wasting my time.

    I suspect the tone of that is more a result of, as you say, 'knocking yourself out' getting this place into some sort of order, and your current mood of 'tired'. You need a break from the work you are doing, and a rethink of what it's about..

    Yes, it needed to be made better - and it's appreciated what you have done, and are doing, and it's massibely improved - but can you imagine what this place would be like if we didn't ask each other stuff? Knowing people will understand the reasons why we ask, try help, and explain or discusss what they know is one of the core elements of the 'community' we keep mentioning. You know you're not trying to replace that, just to make what is here easier to use, and slowly it's getting there, and people are beginning to use it more - but there's no 'failure' in people not using that first, always and only alongside them talking things over and asking people in the forums....


    Basically - you need a holiday from constantly rebuilding and moderating Stratics. It's turning into a 'job', rather than a fun side to your hobby. :(

    Those, along with black, white and fire are from seeds you get from the Naturlist quest :)

    Petra remove the expand option on some parts. I think that would help alot.
