blue berry is mispelled, since the IGN is blue berries, in plural.

There are a few missing dyes such as Black and White Dye, Silver and Black Dye, and Bright White Dye. There may be more, but I know it is missing these.--24.23.226.117 12:36, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for catching these. I've added them to the page. --Setheral (talk) 17:47, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Crafting Every Dye[edit source]

I reciently got done with trying to craft every dye following the numbers on the page i did not have enough items to craft 13 of every die (i got down to flame and black and flame and silver and ran out of dyes.) Also we might consider updating the math to include the 14th dye slot the desktop has available. (due to expert mode)

Merging Dye Pages[edit source]

I think the dye pages need to be merged with this page, since it's kind of messy to have a different page for each one. Gamablaze (talk) 03:58, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

I agree. I've been putting it off since it's a bigger job than some other merges -- there are a lot of dyes, and there may be some actual info on the individual dye pages that could warrant moving over. Feel free to start though and I'll help. Equazcion (talk) 04:46, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
Note that due to the complexity of the crafting options I'd merge the crafting lists on each page into a big one here, if we are going to be doing a merge. This is one of the reasons it could be a more tedious job than say paints or statues. Equazcion (talk) 04:48, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
As soon as I figure out how to do what needs to be done, I can start on it. Moving the recipes is the main thing I need to figure out. Gamablaze (talk) 04:55, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Also might as well mark the dye page as Under Construction. Gamablaze (talk) 04:58, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I can make each dye page into redirects using a bot when ready, so at least that part won't need to be done manually. If you get stuck with the crafting merges let me know, I know a bit about how that would be done -- it's just tedious. Equazcion (talk) 05:08, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
I feel silly for not waiting for a reply on this before adding redirects. Gamablaze (talk) 05:12, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem :) Just leave a note when they're all ready to be mass-redirected. Equazcion (talk) 05:14, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
I think I've redirected them all manually. The recipes and update history seem to be the only thing left. Not sure how to do those. Gamablaze (talk) 05:26, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to undo those redirects for now -- the information should be merged first so that it appears somewhere, before the pages are redirected. The major issue is how to merge all the information together and present it, while the redirecting itself can be done automatically via a bot afterward. I do appreciate the effort you put in though. Equazcion (talk) 05:39, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I didn't think it through very well. Gamablaze (talk) 05:41, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem. On second thought I'm not sure about the merge. Right now if you acquire a dye you can go to its page and see all the other dyes that can be crafted with it. It seems like it might be simpler to keep it that way rather than having to search through the dye page for all the various recipes involving the dye you're looking for. I'm not sure though. I can't think of a way to merge it all on one page while still keeping things that easy. Equazcion (talk) 05:47, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess that makes sense. I acted faster than I thought. I thought the dye page already had all the recipes on it, so it seemed redundant at first. Gamablaze (talk) 05:50, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I removed the under construction notice for now. We can always try this again at some point if someone comes up with a good idea for the layout. Equazcion (talk) 05:52, 18 Sep 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. I guess that's what I get for trying to edit the wiki at 1am. I better go to sleep. Gamablaze (talk) 05:58, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I think this should be brought up again. While having the dye pages all merged on one page might be a pain, I think it would be better to have separate pages like "Primary Dyes", "Silver Compound Dyes", "Black Compound Dyes", "Bright Dyes", and "Gradient Dyes". I'd be able to start working on it now, but I'd like to hear others' opinions on this first. --KM100 (talk) 21:56, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
I know I'm responding late, but I do think this should be done still, but with proper planning this time. Is it possible to use tables to display the combination dyes? For instance, if you wanted to know what to mixed dyes make, you'd look in the top row for the first dye, and the left column for the second dye. I'm not to familiar with wiki code (or anything wiki related, really,) so I'm not sure of it's capabilities. Gamablaze (talk) 02:50, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
I too missed this comment at the time. I think a merge to a few separate list pages would be a good solution, if you still want to do that (@User:KM100). Equazcion (talk) 02:56, 7 Jul 2015 (UTC)
By merge, do you mean separating the page entirely, or simply creating new pages for each section and leaving this page as-is? Personally, I like the page as it is now. It may be long but it lists all the dyes and explains how to craft/obtain them in a concise and fairly well-organized manner. I think leaving this page alone but having separate pages for the current sections with tables, as mentioned above, would be a good idea. --Setheral (talk) 20:01, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
The intent of merging the pages would be to make it so each individual page wouldn't need to be managed despite conveying nearly identical information. This central Dye page would not be changed, but the individual pages (Red Dye, Blue and Black Dye, Yellow and Silver Dye, etc) would changed to redirects. I've already made a Bright Dye page to test the idea, so feel free to give your opinion.–KM100 (talk) 20:17, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah, okay. The sample you linked is pretty much what I had in mind from my previous response, so I'm all for it. Let me know if I can help in any way if you decide to go through with it. --Setheral (talk) 17:53, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

This really need a table[edit source]

All the new dyes really fkd up the page, it's all clumsy and very hard to read, it would be lovely if someone makes a table with the GIFs effects of each dye, it would be a much cooler page. --Frenchiveruti (talk) 23:54, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Found a new dye[edit source]

It's called Twiligh Hair Dye. You might want to add it.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.74.69.222 (contribs) at 10:16, 20 Jul 2015 (UTC)

See Hair Dye. Equazcion (talk) 10:22, 20 Jul 2015 (UTC)

Horrible jpeg images[edit source]

Someone should get better player images so you can actually see what color it's supposed to be. 73.4.14.108 13:46, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

All the jpg images need to be remade into png files. I keep meaning to redo ALL these images. Maybe Monday. – Ferretwings (talk) 21:06, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
