    First, let me give major compliments to Mythic, and specifically Sakkarah, for the implementation of the staining system as it stands. It's a very nice addition to UO that allows us to customize all of our armor and clothing to match. It also gives a GREAT boon to gardeners, making gardening not only viable but profitable once more.

    All of this said, I was reading that berries and such were considered for the staining system, and which may yet happen in the future, and I was thinking about an additional resource that would be nice... I really like the metal ore colors as well, and right now, we can't make a verite armor piece match a valorite armor piece. What I propose is that you can mix 1 plain pigment with 1 crushed ore (made by alchemist with mortar and pestle) -- or for simplicity sake, 1 ingot -- and you will receive a metallic stain in one of the original 8 additional metal colors (obviously it would be pointless to do "iron" because it's not a color, it's just not hued).

    This still requires plants to be part of the system so it doesn't devalue the existing stain system, but it would give access to those 8 colors.

    Just a thought, but it would be nice to match those colors as well.

    Add the wood colors and berries to the idea.

    Actually, come to think of it, wood colors and leather colors would be a good idea, and yeah, definitely I'm thinking of this in addition to the berries.

    there is a "metal" color now (you mix black with plain) (not sure what it colors out to be ingame) - perhaps add your crushed ore to that to make the colored metals of the ore

    really do like the idea - would be a great expansion on the staining system (which does seem really popular - I know us gardeners are loving it hehee)

    I agree this would be a most excellent addition to the staining system which is by far one of the most wonderful additions to come into game in a long time.

    Thank you Sakkarah!
