    Will this work on clothing added by other mods?
  3. MrMagical

    It will work if the clothing exists in the basic game, but needs the mod to be created.

    If the clothing was added by the mod, it will not work unless support for it is added. This means using the dynamic coloring system and adding recipe files for each color. It's not terribly difficult to do and I could make a small guide for it if necessary.

    Disclaimer right off the bat makes your mod sound sketchy.

    A guide would be cool.

    Adding support for an item

    Part 1, Dynamic Coloring

    All dyeable items use Starbound's system for dynamically replacing colors.

    Here's an image file for the silver armor (/assets/items/armors/other/silverarmor/icons.png):
    Note that the armor does not look silver, but orange.

    Next, at the bottom of the properties file for the silver grieves (/assets/items/armors/other/silverarmor/silverarmor.legs) we find this:
      "colorOptions" : [
        /* GREY */
        { "ffca8a" : "e5e9f1", "e0975c" : "c4c7cd", "a85636" : "72767f", "6f2919" : "4a4d52" },
        /* BLACK */
        { "ffca8a" : "838383", "e0975c" : "555555", "a85636" : "383838", "6f2919" : "151515" },
        /* GREY */
        { "ffca8a" : "b5b5b5", "e0975c" : "808080", "a85636" : "555555", "6f2919" : "303030" },
        /* WHITE */
        { "ffca8a" : "e6e6e6", "e0975c" : "b6b6b6", "a85636" : "7b7b7b", "6f2919" : "373737" },
        /* RED */
        { "ffca8a" : "f4988c", "e0975c" : "d93a3a", "a85636" : "932625", "6f2919" : "601119" },
        /* ORANGE */
        { "ffca8a" : "ffd495", "e0975c" : "ea9931", "a85636" : "af4e00", "6f2919" : "6e2900" },
        /* YELLOW */
        { "ffca8a" : "ffffa7", "e0975c" : "e2c344", "a85636" : "a46e06", "6f2919" : "642f00" },

        /* BLUE */
        { "ffca8a" : "96cbe7", "e0975c" : "5588d4", "a85636" : "344495", "6f2919" : "1a1c51" },
        /* PURPLE */
        { "ffca8a" : "d29ce7", "e0975c" : "a451c4", "a85636" : "6a2284", "6f2919" : "320c40" },
        /* PINK */
        { "ffca8a" : "eab3db", "e0975c" : "d35eae", "a85636" : "97276d", "6f2919" : "59163f" },
        /* BROWN */
        { "ffca8a" : "ccae7c", "e0975c" : "a47844", "a85636" : "754c23", "6f2919" : "472b13" }
        { "e0975c" : "a96a44", "a85636" : "804424", "6f2919" : "532612" },
        { "e0975c" : "757575", "a85636" : "515151", "6f2919" : "252525" },
        { "e0975c" : "cf5b36", "a85636" : "a32c1a", "6f2919" : "721706" },
        { "e0975c" : "358ec7", "a85636" : "1f5a91", "6f2919" : "112766" },
        { "e0975c" : "dedb57", "a85636" : "968b32", "6f2919" : "6f6421" },
        { "e0975c" : "815892", "a85636" : "5a3d65", "6f2919" : "291c2e" },
        { "e0975c" : "83d358", "a85636" : "529634", "6f2919" : "306e23" },
        { "e0975c" : "e3b21c", "a85636" : "9d7319", "6f2919" : "735212" },
        { "e0975c" : "dda1dd", "a85636" : "9c5f99", "6f2919" : "663b5f" },
        { "e0975c" : "aaaaaa", "a85636" : "6f6f6f", "6f2919" : "494949" },
        { "e0975c" : "d8d8d8", "a85636" : "8d8d8d", "6f2919" : "636363" }
    This is a list of color sets that are used to replace the colors of the image, depending on the dye.
    The color sets have comments describing what dye they correspond to.
    The default set is at the top and is often duplicated because the other color sets must always come in the same order.

    Color replacements are separated by commas and the color on the left side of the colon is replaced with the one on the right.
    All images associated with the item, including inventory icon and appearance when worn can use this system.

    Most items use an orange palette of colors to replace and if you use this palette you will almost only have to edit the image files.
    Just make sure that the normal color sets are still in the file and replace the top set with another if you want to change the default.

    However, you can use any colors you want and even color part of an item red when green dye is applied, for example.

    Once the item has a set of colors that can be changed, we can continue with the nest step.

    Part 2, Recipe Files

    To make an item work with this mod, it also needs recipe files for each color.

    1. Copy the entire /mods/DyeingBucket/recipes/starter/dyeingmachine/other/testarmor folder into your mod.
    2. Rename the folder to something similar to the name of the item if you want.
    3. Replace each instance of the word testarmor with the itemName of the item. Check the properties file for the item for this.
    4. Repeat for all items you want to add support for.

    Please ask if there's something that confuses you.

    How did you have multiple inputs to a single output? I've been trying to do this and was told it was impossible. Can you do it in reverse?

    Annoyingly enough makeshift greaves can be dyed, but doesn't show the changes when worn... I just wanted orange makeshift armor to match my favorite rocket launcher.
    So rare when a mod preforms better than the game it's for.
  13. MrMagical

    MrMagical Subatomic Cosmonaut

    I've been relying on the game's existing textures and features to make this mod and some items have issues.

    I could do a manual fix for the makeshift greaves. They weren't set up correctly for dynamic coloring, but some custom color sets could fix that.
    In the next version, you'll be able to dye them again and it will work.

    If anyone knows of other items they would like to see added or improved, let me know.

    I would like to tell you that dyeing a hazmat suit with yellow dye makes it green. Also, before you updated this, I tried dyeing a wizard hat, didn't work. Is it fixed in this version or ?
