Trick or Treat Cloth - How many colors are there?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Lustig als'Holle, Nov 11, 2010.

  1. Since Mesanna stated that the trick or treat cloth is legal, does anyone know how many different colors there are? Or if a dev could confirm how many colors there are (or even the hue range), that would be even better!

    Did she write somewhere that it was legal? I heard from a friend that it was legal, but curious if she posted that somewhere. Thanks!

    Jesus... I was beginning to wonder as I approached 120. But I got enough to make like 100+ Skirt/tunic outfits so I think I'm probably good for now. :p

    There are twelve base colours, each of which has twelve highlight colours. For some of them one highlight is the same hue as the base, so there is not a "special cloth" look to the cloth.

    When you get tricked and your whole paperdoll goes hued out is the deal. Best be on a hgih level tailor and be in cloths to cut off paperdoll with scissors. Got to hit the clothing before it wears off and returns to color. Non tailor just make some fancy color bandies. Sad fact is the new crafted mask don't hold the color when making them with the new cloth. With all I wear and hit the right combination before it reverts I get 47 cloth from one trick.

    fur boots
    fur sarong
    half apron
    tattsuke-hakama
    gilded dress
    cloak
    jester suit
    cloth ninja jacket
    wizard hat

    Bear mask be one more cloth just have to make sure the new cloth not in your pack when making. Mask crafting doesn't ask what cloth to use and just uses the last cloth to hit the bag.

    Make sure as many wearables and things to hold as you can. Theese items are not recycled but help delay the revert of items you want to recycle. so metal gorget / sleeves / gloves and an item in each hand. Don't forget the ring braclet and earrings.

    Have four days to gather. And hitting the garg refugees at server up is the best. They are in a mob before they start to wander

    This is almost correct.

    There are 12 base colors and 12 highlight colors, but all the highlight colors sit between the base colors. If you look at it as a color wheel, the base hues are at the integer multiples of 30 degrees, and the highlight hues are offset by 15 degrees. The pure red base hue will have two highlights that are close to red, but one will have a little more blue in it and the other will have a little more green in it. The difference is difficult to see just applied to a piece of cut or folded cloth, but when made into clothing (the higher contrast the better) the subtle variation is easier to see.

    These hue maps are also higher contrast than the dye tub hues, so they bring out more of the detail in the artwork.

    They were initially created in a search for an iridescence effect to use to re-hue fish (and some of them are used on fish), but as it turns out they look really nice on clothing -- and other things as well.

    doubt it was intentional... but rather another bug that was overlooked and easier to say have fun with it than fix it. Haopy it is there and happy they will leave it there but don't fool yourselves.. this was a error on their part.
