Dinnerbone has seriously been giving us awesome stuff for 1.4. You could customise your houses with Display Cases and Plant Pots, now you can customise your armour with dye!

EDIT: Dinnerbone just tweeted about dyeable wolf collars! Could it be?

@anthonyjmoeller Nope, but they have dyable collars instead!

Do not suggest Vertical Redstone, Emerald Tools, Obsidian Tools and Skylands. They will be burnt in a hole.

Or at least Leather, which makes sense.
I can't see being able to die Diamond, unless you need to craft it with wool or something to make it dyable.

Another reason to use leather armour? xD

I don't think it would be out of place to name this update the Decor Update. I love every feature that's been added so far. =)
No, I will not click your dragon egg. I hope it dies from hypothermia.

Awesome. I dislike using my ore for armor, so I'm almost always in leather. This'll be a neat little addition.

You can put in any combination of dyes you want? Awesome! I'll still use only black armor though :P

This reminds me of the dye system in guild wars

Cool. I have been collecting a lot of leather from my cow farm too, so it'll be nice to have this functionality to make a whole wardrobe of coloured clothing.
Kinda wish it'd be possible to dye iron armour as well though so it's a bit more functional. Maybe you can... I guess time will tell.

This is good for team based games, it would be useful for that capture the flag gamemode that's possibly coming soon.

Capture the flag won't be added, it was one of Notch's ideas, that are gone now with Notch.

So, I'm really curious. Why do they have a bunch of different dyes in the crafting square? And what color is that supposed to be?

Edit: Holy crap, dinnerbone stated that we have 0xFFFFFF colors....

...but that's just like, my opinion, man.

I'm guessing it takes the colour codes from the dyes, mixes them, and applies the output colour code as an overlay on the item.

This could be amazing for PvP.
Dye it to look like diamond and people will think twice about attacking you.
