Playing on Xbox 360, I have been really getting into the player-made houses, and am currently building a set of "showcase rooms" for my painter.

I have placed 16 2x2 segments of wooden wall to display the base colours, and framed them with stone, to display the deep colours. Everything is pretty much complete. However; Deep Cyan does not appear to paint stone. I know that some tiles can not be painted, but I understood that this was specific to the tile, not the paint. As you can see in my image, I had no trouble painting any of the other frames.

As you can see, Cyan is displaying differently to all its neighbor colours.

I have attempted to paint the stone with Deep Cyan twice. The first time, you could see the tiny paint drops flick out, confirming that I had painted something. The second time, I cleared out my inventory, to make sure I was not accidentally using a different paint. This time, no paint drops, and still no colour.

Does Cyan/Deep Cyan Paint have different capabilities then every other paint, am I doing something wrong, or is this more likely just a bug?

This appears to be a rendering bug that many people have reported.

Not only that but the saturation is incorrect (ie. it's the same as cyan).

However this should have been fixed in version 1.3. So if you are running an earlier version try updating.

  • That makes sense. I believe 1.3 is not live to console, yet.
