Q: Coloured synth materialsFollow

I'm just wondering, can you swap in coloured materials into any synth and make a custom final piece?

I'm asking because lots of recipes specify a coloured material, but i'm wondering if that's not just a placeholder to mean (any colour) and can be chosen freely.

Anyone have tried this yet?

Not a "custom" piece no, because certain items can currently only be made into specific colors. You couldn't, say, combine the two synths of the red and blue versions of an item and come out with something completely different. Even though most pieces of gear have several variations, the crafting system is pretty specific on how you obtain each one, at least currently.

You didn't answer my basic question though which is can you swap out the coloured material for another colour, or can it only be made in the colour specified in the recipe?

Ex : Can you only make Kecks(Grey) and not swap in brown to make Kecks(Taupe)?

You can't invent a color if that's what you're asking.

Some recipes only have one ingredient that controls the final color and you can change that to get a different result as long as the color you want to make is a possible outcome. However, let's say for example an item has a pink, a blue, and a red version you couldn't make a brown version by swapping the appropriate item if "brown" wasn't already a predefined possibility.

It gets worse when some recipes have more than one ingredient that controls the final color and you normally can't just substitute one at a time to change the result you get (you'll get an error saying the ingredient combination isn't possible).

Making this all a bit complicated for the answer I think... most recipes that have color variations can be changed (In fact they are mostly in the database already). But you have to keep in mind to switch of all the colored items. So All (Grey), for all (Beige). For a rough example. Really it's usually just easier to look up that item by name and color variants will show up.

I will answer your question with the example below

mole-brown hempen cloth
hempen yarn
sheep leather
copper buckle
result: Sheep Leather Subligar (brown)

lead-grey hempen cloth
hempen yarn
sheep leather
copper buckle
result: Sheep Leather Subligar (grey)

Sand-Beige Hempen Cloth
hempen yarn
sheep leather
copper buckle
result: You can not synthesize anything with this recipe
