Precision Dyes 1.1

Adds new dyes to fine tune your armor colors.

  1. MaxShadow09
    This mod adds new dyes that slightly modify the colors of your armors and clothes.

    There are 12 new dyes, which allow you to increase or decrease the following properties:
    • Luminosity
    • Saturation
    • Hue
    • Red Component
    • Green Component
    • Blue Component

    These dyes can be crafted at a spinning well. They use basic resources like petals, coal, bones, empty flasks and water.

    • These dyes are not meant to be used to make custom colors, but to slightly adjust the color applied by another vainilla dye.
    • Using one dye and then using the opposite will not give you the same color you had before applying both dyes.
    • Using too many dyes on the same armor piece will start washing out its colors. If they look too messed up, just use a vainilla dye to reset them.
    • This is multiplayer compatible. The dyes will show as Perfect Generic Items if you don't have the mod, but any color applied to an armor piece should be visible for everyone.
    To install just decompress the zip inside your Starbound/mods folder. Tell me if you find any problems.

    Perfect, about time that I could make my Moogle's tunic red-orange without having to hijack color pallete data the hard way!

    Excellent resource to mod colors, I wonder why this wasn't included in the game.

    Hello, this is what starbound really needs, but I' have an issue: i perfectly craft any new dye the mod adds, but when i use it on "pond armor" i crash out of them game. Any new dye does the same thing. I check the logs and it says: Error: could not load exception precdye.lua

    So apparently its a script issue, how to fix?

      Hmm weird. That's the main script. It either can't find it, or it can't execute it for some reason. Can you post your entire log in the forums? (Click on "Discuss this mod"). By the way, make sure you're using the latest game version, specially if you're using the GoG version.

    Good one,It is just perfect, but is multiplayer compatible?

      The dyes will show as Perfect Generic Items for players without the mod, but any color applied to your armor should be visible anywhere. It is already possible to make custom colors in the vainilla game, but there isn't a practical way of doing it. I'll see if I can add a GUI with sliders to adjust the colors more precisely.
