Seeing as how it was removed, why not make it drop from soil, so it would be the most common color?

I think cocoa beans are going to implemented once more, but this is a nice idea. Maybe a 20/30% chance of it dropping from dirt? And you'd need a shovel for it to actually drop? I think having multiple ways of getting one type of dye is nice.

coco beans don't come from dirt O.o

Would be more logical if they came from special trees in the rainforest biome.

That would be inaccurate. Mixing all colors would give you Black.
Instead, Mix Orange and Magenta maybe?

Yes, the Cocoa Bean item has a sprite and a use, but it wasn't implemented, and then removed altogether.

It's not removed, it still exists and an be hacked by putting damage 3 to any dye.

Have a read of this suggestion that I made regarding dyes. If you follow this example, you would make brown by either mixing red, blue and yellow or by mixing a secondary colour (orange, green, purple) with the colour not used to make it (i.e. orange and blue, green and red, purple and yellow), just like you would with real pigments.

I meant brown dye would be obtained from dirt. Cocoa beans would be able to be harvested from some sort of tree and refined into brown dye.

I say stick with the cocoa beans and also give them the ability to make CHOCOLATE CAAAKE.
My lack of signature is disturbing.

Maybe brown sheep could be made? Or maybe, like chickens drop eggs, maybe pigs should drop...

no, to get black you remove all colr, adding all color gives you white

You are all getting very confused. Minecraft dyes are supposed to be virtual "pigments", consider it like mixing paints not mixing RGB pixels. If you mix the primary colours together you get brown. You cannot get black or white by mixing coloured pigments, only by using black or white pigments (ink/bonemeal in this case).

Oh god I have to answer this.

If you mix all the colors of a dye together you get black.  Not white.
If you mix to colors opposite on the color wheel you get brown.

I feel the need to teach some people about colors.

First of all, there are three primary colors of light, Red Green and Blue.
http://www.trianglep...or_triangle.gif

But we're not talking about light, we're talking about pigments, which get their color by what colors they aborb and what ones they reflect. Of the three primary subtractive colors, Magenta absorbs green and reflects red and blue. Cyan absorbs red and reflects blue and green. And finally, yellow absorbs blue and reflects red and green.
http://www.huevaluec...om/pics/5-6.png

But what happens when you mix these colors? the above color triangle should give you an idea, you can end up with colors like red, blue, green, orange, violet, and a whole bunch of desaturated messes. There seems to be some controversy about what happens when you mix all of these colors. Do you get black, brown, or white? Well you get white when all of the colors of light are together, so basically when the object absorbs no light and reflects it all. Black is achieved when the object absorbs all the light and doesn't reflect any. But you can't get either of those by using magenta cyan and yellow, pigments, you would need black or white to mix into it. As for brown, you can get that by mixing a mess of colors, but it's not perfectly balanced. The perfect mix of magenta, cyan and yellow would yield a neutral gray, as all of the colors cancel each other out, absorbing equal proportions of each color but not all of it.

I think it would be nice if minecraft colors worked more like this, then we would only need 5 different dye colors to achieve an infinitely vast color spectrum. However I think using simple and more well-known colors makes it easier on the average user, but I'd like to be able to mix any number of my pigments together to achieve my perfect hue.

When working with acrylic paints I found that mixing black and orange produced a good brown.
