Educated_Beast Posted October 20, 2014 Share Posted October 20, 2014 (edited) EDIT BASED ON FEEDBACK BELOW: There is confussion based on "lore" that I have never seen. Apparently, the gold on weapons and frames is supposed to be "alive" and not just decoration. If that is true, there is still no reason not to allow coloring. Here are some points to consider: -- There are many different colors of gold depending on purity (red, yellow, green, white, blue, purple, etc.): Here is a link with adequate proof http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colored_gold -- Even if the gold itself is not an intermetallic compound, even todays technology can paint it! Imagine how much better the paint of the future is. Dont like paint, anodized metals come in all colors imaginable. But I'm just asking for the basics (black, red, white, chrome, silver, bronze, copper, nickel, etc.). http://inmyownstyle.com/2013/08/spray-painting-metal-hardware-brass-to-nickel.html -- But wait, some people below claim the lore states it is not actually gold but some Orikin living metal, a genetic material that has a gold appearance. So? There is no way to back yourself into a corner when it comes to fantasy lore. All we need here is a genetic prime color template. This color template actually changes the organic structure of your frames / prime weapons to allow editing the base color by altering DNA. -- To do this modification, you would have to purchase a color template from DE. Set it to 100 platinum, I don't care. I'd pay 200 to be able to change my prime frames colors. Regaurdless of the price, it will get sales, it will benifit DE, and it will benifit players who enjoy the customization. It is win/win, there are no losers here. -- The base color would stay gold. If you like the disco / gangster bling bling look, you get to keep it and do not have to do anything. For the players that enjoy freedom and customizing each peice of gear, they will be in heaven. ORIGINAL POST __________________________________________________ Please allow all prime weapons and warframes to toggle their base gold color. I am not a fan of all the bling bling. I know some people like it so I am not asking for it to be removed, but just have the ability to tweak. Prime weapons greatly out power non - prime so you have to use (I personally think boltor looks way cooler than Boltor prime).It adds more variability and would encourage purchasing color packets. Heck, you could even release a prime color package to swap to other metals (silver, chrome, bronze, red, black, etc.).Now even warframes have boosted stats that give slight advantage over non prime. We are being forced into a cookie cutter look. Please give us options.I'd be happy to buy a prime color package!P.s. paris prime is hideous (IMO), not to mention completely illogical to use gold as a metal for a weapon...
