MYSTERY PAINTS - BLACK & WHITE

Postby Rufmeister on Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:18 pm

Hey everyone,

I am far sure this has been suggested many times, but I thought I'd bring it up again because I still find it an awesome idea, or a good concept to base off of...

Far too often do I see the coolest car customization come from external modifications to Rocket League for car colors/designs not present in the game. One of the most common having black or white as a primary color for a players car. Although the colors can be obtained and seen through external modifications, I find it more satisfying to having obtained the items in the actual game and using mods is sort of a 'cheat'. The color would be highlighted with the 'Mystery Decal Purple Glow' in the paint selection and could either be selected as a primary color or secondary. Hopefully there could be a few more other than black and white added but those two are by far the best and most suggested and it'd be awesome to see them in a future crate. Here are some examples of black and white paints:

Problem 1:

It would make it more difficult to tell which player is on your team if they have black as their primary and a blue color secondary for orange team or an orange color primary.

Potential Solutions:

If a player selects one of the Mystery Paints as their primary paint color, the secondary color options could then be restricted to the typical primary color options available for each team color. Although this would limit a lot of customization, we would still have many cool options available. However, if Psyonix took a different approach and allowed all colors, players may just have to rely on the players names in-game (which doesn't seem too much of an issue in my opinion).

-------------------------------------

Problem 2:

How would this affect Mystery Decals?

Solution:

Mystery decals could be equipped how they normally would and the color of them is determined by the secondary car color. Since standard black color is already offered as a secondary color, there would be no need to have the Mystery decals function as a secondary color, unless the paint itself is noticeably different than the secondary available to allow better customization and matching.

Feedback is always welcome. I'm sure there's things I missed or things that could be potential problems that I am unaware of..

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: For those who think that it would still be confusing to distinguish players just by their secondary color if their primary color is black or white, think of the Batmobile and how its secondaries, although very subtle, can distinguish the team. With the colors being restricted it would be even easier so any car could be used with Mystery Paints.

EDIT 2: For those who think it would be easier to make them their own mystery decals: I feel it would be a bit bland and not really similar to the idea of design and animation that Mystery Decals have. Each Mystery Paint would be a plain color, or something similar to a plain color, with no animations, of which Mystery decals could then be added onto the car.

suggestion: we should only be able to set the black/white main color for one team. For example black is only available on the blue team and white is only available on the orange team/ or turn around. So it would be not confusing for the team at all.
i really like the idea and hope this will come!

I like the picture with the white Dominus cause the wheels look nicer.

This would be the best way to implement it I think

It’s a good idea, although the whole point of Mystery stuff was it was supposed to be universal.. To me it wouldn’t make them as cool if they were team specific.

No we don't; please understand that there is a difference between needs and wants. You want this, but we definitely don't need it. That said, I do think we need to expand the primary color options (but not including black and/or white) - for example, adding more purple to blue team.

There's a site called alphaconsole.net and on the site you can actually have Black and White paints let me explain it to you.

So for example on the site you select your wheels as Alpha Wheels so if you went in a 2v2 match you would see the Alpha Wheels but the other people will see your normal wheels. It's pretty cool,right?

Are you new to forums? The whole point of them is having discussions, not agreeing with everything or stay silent. You are showing disrespect by telling him he's not entitled to his opinion.
And he makes a good point; there is a difference between need and want. I would like black and white too, but I'd much rather have all shades of blue, green orange, purple, red and yellow, which ARE available as secondary colors but not as main.

I appreciate all the feedback, wish it wasn’t really an argument though... I do agree that more paint color options in general should be added, however the point of this topic was about creating special Mystery paints that could be earned through crates in unique colors such as black, white, chrome, or chameleon type colors (look up for images). Thank you everyone!

Yes I am new to the forums I joined a month ago. You also don't have to remind me what they mean because I've actually seen massive fights on the forums before and that was on ROBLOX forums they have been removed now.
