Craftable Dye by Mr Esturk

NOTICE: Ughh, I don't believe this version of the mod uploaded right (correct me if I'm wrong anyone who has subscribed to it). If you can't get it to work try downloading it from the Nexus:


There is also a new version that adds helmet dyeing. If anyone can confirm this version (1.0) of the mod works I'll upload 1.1 here (no point if this version doesn't work, since I'd just be uploading another broken copy). Otherwise you can get it from the nexus link.

Craftable dyes mod for Divinty: Original Sin

Created by MrEsturk
Version 1.0

This mod allows you to craft dyes using easy to find ingredients.


- Includes recipes for all 6 default game dyes

- Uses relatively easy to find crafting materials.

- Can be made compatible with existing saves.


Place the Pak file into your /Libraries/Documents/Larian Studios/Divinity Original Sin/Mods folder. If you got this from the steam workshop that part should already be done for you.

Start the game, activate the mod and either use a new game or use the merging process I'll list below if you want to use this for an existing save.


Simply delete the Pak file from /Libraries/Documents/Larian Studios/Divinity Original Sin/Mods


- Step 1: Make a backup save in case you mess something up

- Step 2: Start a new game with ONLY this mod activated. Make a save of it.

- Step 3: Find your savegames folder. It should be /Libraries/Documents/Larian Studios/Divinity Original Sin/PlayerProfiles/*YourProfilesName*

- Step 4: Copy the "meta.lsb" file from the new game save you made over the "meta.lsb" file of your existing save.


NOTE: These recipes where intended to be easy to make, not to be 100% logical.

You must use a character with a crafting level of 2 or higher for these recipes. None of these recipes will destroy the bucket used.

- Red Dye: A bucket + a bottle of wine

- Blue Dye: A bucket + a bottle of water

- Yellow Dye: A bucket + a bottle of beer

- Green Dye: A bucket + a poison flask OR yellow dye + blue dye

- Purple Dye: A bucket + pixie dust OR red dye + blue dye

- Black Dye: A bucket + a cup of oil

- White Dye: A bucket + bone dust

Remember you can fill empty bottles/cups by draggin them over a barrel of the liquid you want. Beer/Wine barrels can be found pubs. Bone Dust can be made by combining most bones/skulls with a mortar and pestile.


- This mod will not likely work with other recipe mods such as "Fixed and Missing Recipes" by default. You could however possible merge it into another recipe mod by pasting the file contents of my "ItemCombos.txt" and "ItemComboPreviews.lsx" into the another recipe mod's equivilant files. A simple text editor such as wordpad could be used for that.

- The usual pain in the butt issues with using mods in Divinity.


Wish mages wore normal clothes instead robes? Wish the sarongs didn't display? Just wish the armor for either gender showed more skin? Check out my mods at the Nexus:

(Sorry, can't upload those mods to the workshop just yet due to their format.)

Additional Credits:

-dragonsong: I used his "Fixed and Missing Recipes" as reference on how to set up a recipe mod.

-Larian Studios: For creating the game.

take that back its 3..
(having to use the editor just so i can get the black dyes,,,
as i havn't got a clue how im suppose to get a cup of oil :S
1stReaper. May 15, 2015 @ 3:09pm 
the black,,, and i think white dyes need higher then 2,
would it be possible if you could lower it ?,
as it takes a very long time before i'm able to dye my thieves clothes black :<
and if possible could you change it so that the dyes stack ?

I downloaded it from Nexus and followed the "TO ACTIVATE THIS MOD IN AN EXISTING SAVE" directions....when I opened the save, my characters were on Cyseal beach (they had been in Silverglen in the save I copied the meta file into)....but it seems as if the game is at the same progression point and the mod is working fine so it was just a matter of running back to Silverglen and it seems as if everything is good......Does this usually happen when incorporating mods into old savegames?
