Is there any way to make the fur on dreadhorn armor not red?

I've seen pictures that ESO have that show the fur on dreadhorn armor as a natural brown color, yet no matter what I do all the fur stays red. Any thoughts?

    I'm on a ps4. not sure how to transfer pictures. I am talking about the fur on the heavy chest's shoulder and waist. The fur on the light and medium shoulders. And the fur on light, medium, and heavy feet and hands. All that ugly "champion" red.

    Some materials, when dyed, do not significantly change their color, and VERY often do not change the dyed item to the exact color of the dye. Some parts of armor cannot be dyed, as each item is limited to 3 dyes. That's my guess as to what's happening (that's the reason why I don't use Dreadhorn style much), rather than a technical glitch or something like that.

    To extract a screenshot from PS4, use the share button to take a screenshot at the appropriate time, plug a USB drive into your PS4, go to the captures section, and transfer screenshots from that. Once you plug the USB device into your PC, simply upload the screenshot file to an image sharing site, which should have a forum code or link that you can post here.

    yeah, it seems there's no color bar that changes the fur. Which sucks because every picture of th dreadhorn set shown by Zos shows either grey or brown fur, while in game it's stuck in glossy red. oh well. *** out of luck.

    Are you dying armor or using the outfit system? because the outfit system may set it to the default lvl 1 mats which may drop the rubedite color...

    I think he means the Dreadhorn "Pauldrons", as you can only colour the horns on either side with the fur retaining its red coloration, in my personal opinion, you should try finding a red coloration for your armor which can blend in well with some nice dark colours on the side.

    Tips for how you can be an ESO Community Hero (Written and last edited by ZOS_GinaBruno at precisely 8:56PM, March 30th 2014.)
    Below are a few recommendations and tips to help you become one of the very best community members — a veritable hero — on The Elder Scrolls Online official community forums. These recommendations and tips also reflect the ESO core community philosophies.
    • Agree to Disagree: We have a very diverse community of individuals and groups who have a variety of interests, opinions, and backgrounds. Just like in every-day life, you will not agree with all the opinions you encounter here, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly acceptable to disagree, but please do not put other people down for their opinions, ideas, or suggestions. In most discussions, there is no right or wrong, just different angles, opinions, and interests.
    • Be Civil and Respectful: Being civil and respectful goes a long way, especially when involved in a heated debate. It is possible to be civil and respectful, even when you strongly disagree with someone. Please remember that everyone on these forums is a real person, like you, who is also here because they love The Elder Scrolls Online and want to talk about it.
    • Enjoy Yourself: Have fun, start interesting discussions, and participate in the community activities and discussions that excite you! You, our fans, set the tone and culture of this community. We’re here to listen, help, and foster that growing culture. We want you do enjoy being here as much as we enjoy having you!
    • Ignore Baiting: Sometimes, another community member will attempt to bait you into a response. Usually, this is to elicit some sort of negative or emotional reaction. Please try your best to recognize when this is happening, and ignore it. You may also report it to the ESO Team if the post or thread is violating our Code of Conduct.
    • Post in the Appropriate Area: Please do your best to post threads in the correct area of the forums. We will move any threads that are posted in the incorrect area, and leave an expiring redirect attached to them. We understand that everyone wants their thread to be seen and gets replies — posting them in the proper section is the best way to make sure that happens.
    • Report Violations: If you notice that another community member is violating our Code of Conduct, please report the post and leave it at that. Do not reply, try to correct their behavior yourself, or tell them that you reported them. We understand that our community members are generally just trying to be helpful when they do these things, but they only serve to exacerbate the issue more often than not.
    • Share Constructive Criticism: We want to hear your thoughts and feedback on The Elder Scrolls Online, negative and positive alike. Please consider how you are posting criticism. If you want to share suggestions or constructive criticism about The Elder Scrolls Online, please tell us about it. It is possible to be negative, respectful, and constructive at the same time. When submitting feedback, consider whether or not what you’re posting will be something the Dev Team can use to turn into real change — constructive negative feedback can be a powerful tool to help us improve the game. Remember, we really do want your feedback!
    • Use the Search Function: Please help us keep discussions as consolidated as possible by using the search function before you create a thread. This will help you to identify if there is already an ongoing discussion about the topic you’re interested in talking about.
    • Welcome New Community Members: Please remember that we were all new in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community at one time. Help us foster a welcoming and safe community by being helpful, kind, and considerate to those who are new to our community.
    • When in Doubt, Ask: If you’re unsure whether or not something is acceptable post or thread material for the official The Elder Scrolls Online community, please feel free to ask a moderator or member of the ESO Team. Simply send us a message — we’re here to help!

    Eso Forum Community Rules. (Adhere to it at all times & note it is a bit long if you go to view it.)
    Below is a brief explanation of the community rules and expectations for specific topics and situations. If you have any questions about the Community Code of Conduct, please email The Elder Scrolls Online Team at [email protected]
    Abusive Language and Disruptive Behavior: Zenimax do not tolerate abusive language or disruptive behavior on our forums. This goes for abusive and disruptive comments and behavior that are directed at a ZeniMax Online employee and ESO community members alike. Please remember to be respectful and constructive at all times on the forums, and help Zenimax maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all.
    • Advertising: We do not allow advertising on our forums. This includes, but is not limited to advertisements and promotions for the following:
      • Outside businesses and services.
      • Other games.
      • Any venture that results in monetary profit.
      We do not consider the promotion of guilds, fan sites, and fan groups, or the activities and content thereof, to be advertising. Please feel free to let The Elder Scrolls Online community know all about your guild, fan site, or fan group! Simply keep in mind that you may not promote your guild, fan site, or fan group if you are looking to turn a monetary profit by doing so.
      • Bashing and Slanderous Comments: We do not permit the bashing of individuals (including ZeniMax employees), groups, or other companies on our forums. We believe that doing so is neither constructive nor in spirit of our game and community.
      • Conspiracy Theories and Misinformation: We do not tolerate the deliberate and malicious spreading of false info or conspiracy theories about ZeniMax Online Studios, its game(s), or its employees. This does not include honest mistakes; rather, this rule pertains to those who go out of their way to spread harmful or malicious rumors about ZeniMax Online Studios and its employees, or The Elder Scrolls Online.
      • Copyright Infringement: Names and Material: We do not allow copyright-protected names on our forums. Copyright-protected names are typically from well-known original characters in books, games, and movies. We also do not permit discussion about the illegal distribution or use of copyrighted material, such as private game servers or pirated movies, music, and games.
      • Cursing and Profanity: Purposefully circumventing our forum profanity filter or otherwise cursing or using profanity is not permitted on our forums. Our forums have a profanity filter in place for the purpose of keeping profanity off our forums — please help us keep the ESO community constructive and profanity-free by respecting that filter.
      • Demands and Threats: We encourage you to share feedback, suggestion, and requests with us, but we expect all of our community members to refrain from resorting to demands or threats. We believe that demands and threats are not constructive. Threats of real-life violence, in particular, are something we take very seriously and do not tolerate in the ESO community.
      • Deliberately Disobeying a ZeniMax Online Employee: Deliberately disobeying a request or action by a member of the ZeniMax Online Studios/ESO Team is not permitted at any time. As an example, if we close a thread you created and leave an explanation stating why it was closed, you may not re-create the thread.
      • Discussing Disciplinary Actions: If you ever have questions or concerns about a disciplinary action or decision we have made on the ESO forums, or wish to appeal a forum warning or infraction you’ve received, we ask that you please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to do so (please specify that you are contacting about a forum-related inquiry or appeal). We are happy to discuss and review specific moderation-related actions with you, but we do not allow discussion of any moderation actions or decisions on our forums. If you have questions or concerns about an in-game disciplinary action, please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to ask about a suspension or ban, and any other support-related feedback. We cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums.
      • Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
      • Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave the ESO community, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
      • Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the official ESO community, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
        • Race.
        • Creed.
        • Color.
        • National Origin.
        • Gender.
        • Age.
        • Disability.
        • Sexual Orientation.
        • Lifestyle.
        • Any other personally identifying factors.
        Please help us ensure that everyone feels welcome and free to participate on the official ESO community forums.
      • Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official ESO community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are a ZeniMax Online Studios employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
      • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official ESO forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the ESO forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
        • Extreme violence
        • Illegal substances and activities
        • Pirated copyright-protected material
        • Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
        • Real-world religion and politics
        • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
        One specific term we’d like to call out, as well, is the term “gay.” It is never appropriate to use “gay” as a derogatory term.
      • Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, but also includes links to private game server sites, phishing scams, and sites that sell in-game currencies and power-leveling services.
        We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading ESO-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official ESO forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/.
      • Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of ZeniMax Online Studios employees or ESO community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
      • Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves an in-game situation and/or Terms of Service violation, which the ESO Community Team is unable to assist with. A certain amount of rivalry and competitive razzing is healthy for any game community, especially one with PVP elements, but naming-and-shaming goes well beyond that. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don't feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in spirit of the game or our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them in-game via the support interface — do not bring the situation onto the official ESO community forums.
      • Personal Information: For the sake of your own identity protection and personal privacy, we ask that you please do not share any personal information in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. This also goes for sharing another community member’s personal information — doing so is not only considered malicious behavior, but it is a violation of our Terms of Service and something we take very seriously.
      • Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
      • Role-Play/Fan Fiction God Modding: We support the fan fiction and role-playing communities on the ESO forum, and ask that you please respect your fellow writers and role-players by not “god modding.” God modding is the act of forcing another community member’s character into a situation they have not agreed to. If you wish to involve another person's character in a story or role-play scenario, please respect that individual’s wishes and get their permission first. Failure to do so is considered “god modding,” and is not allowed on the ESO forums.
      • Rude and Insulting Comments/Commentary: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and ZeniMax Online Studios employees alike.
      • Selling, Trading, and Sharing Game Accounts: The act of selling, trading, or sharing your ESO account is a violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we also do not allow discussion about selling, trading, or sharing game accounts on our forums.
      • Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official The Elder Scrolls Online forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
        • Posting the same message more than once.
        • Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content.
        • Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation.
        • Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the ESO Team.
        Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed.
      • Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
      • Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It’s okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll—please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the ESO Team, and leave it at that.

    Are you dying armor or using the outfit system? because the outfit system may set it to the default lvl 1 mats which may drop the rubedite color...

    Yeah, using the outfit station. doesn't change the fur coloring from red even when it changes the rest to lvl 1.

    also light shoulders, the waist on heavy chest(which is wierd because the waist is a silvery grey fur on the female, but red on male). the shoulders on heavy chest, and the hands and feet. And I do not want my armor to be a red coloration, if I did, there'd be no problem here. I want leather to look like leather, steel to look like steel, and fur to look like fur etc.

    Sadly, most fur on ESO armors stay same color when dying. Why is this so is unknown for me. I do not use most of costumes with such features as well, since fur remain color I dislike after I dye the rest.

    It's because, unlike many games, dyes do not change the color of the texture applied to the object, rather, they apply a layer, or filter, over the texture. On some textures, like cloth, this achieves a slightly off version of the dye color. On others, like metal it might apply more of a sheen than the dye color. Some dyes also are meant to be more translucent or opaque, or give off a specifically flat or shiny appearance when applied. This is likely meant to be a more realistic mechanic (and in some ways easier implemented), but it can annoy if you like consistency. I tend to just think of it as a restriction that, if you can work around it, shows some skill with some outfits. I, for example, pride myself on using different gold dyes on armor pieces of varying motifs in order to get a consistent gold color, because applying the same dye across all pieces changes the color from bronze to yellow to gray depending on the piece.

    I get that, but in all pictures that zos has that I've seen shows the fur as a fur-like color, not a shiny metallic red.
