    It's funny to run around for a while like a Smurf but right now i don't like that ugly Blue anymore on my Armor. So why of the Hell, can't i dye this Armor in a new Color? It would be even fine just to undye it, but even that works not. Please make those Armors dye and undyeable. It would be enough if only a normal Leather Dye Tube would work on this Armor.

    I don't want to run around like a Smurf for the rest of my Life, in my ugly Blue 30 Million Armor! :(

    Its because the armor recolors itself anyway when combined, and that color overrides others.. it would only show up the color you want if not all of the pieces were on, and without them all on it makes it near worthless.

    That Armor is ugly Blue when you don't wear it and it is ugly Blue when you wear the full Armor. This Armor don't recolor when it's combined.

    Yes, this is by far the most unattractive armor set in the game. NOt only is the color horrifying, but the hat, which shows up as a circlet on the kr paperdoll, just looks like one of those silly wizard's hats from every other view.

    On the other hand, it still looks far better than any other mismatched all 70s suit with full lrc i've managed to cobble together for a reasonable price, never mind the insane prices for tok dyes these days.


    Still, it would be awesome if this suit were dyeable to a color that makes me NOT look like elvis's shoes.

    It does recolor, you just can't see it because its already the same color normally. Recoloring is part of how the armor-combining is programmed.

    You can achieve more or less the same effect by bleaching virtue armor.. i'll look like its combined all of the time.
     
  6. I second this request (well, I have been complaining about it for a while now)!

    We have Tokuno dyes, and there is no good reason not to be able to dye this armor...in part, or as a whole.

    Black Sorcerer's Suit would be hawt!

    Smurf blue is different, trust me.

    I have Smurf issues from childhood.

    I have a scout suit which is not the hideous blue color but even more problematic when I die and have to dress myself (if you rez yourself using sacrifice you cannot click your body to dress)!! Trying to find BROWN pieces in the bottom of a BROWN pack while running around trying to stay alive is not fun! Well sometimes it is funny though ;) So I would love to be able to dye it a more visible color even if I had to farm 1-use random-drop dyes (*mind bogles*) that are not for hair!

    You know, I love the dev's but sometimes I just have to wonder what are they thinking? *shakes her head*
     
  9. I agree, I have a few sets and the only colours I found that go is the new light blue totIII dye. I used to use a shroud of umbra with it but mw have this horrible black event cloak.
