Answered by Willie Powers

To make tangerine dye in Ark, you will need a few specific ingredients and tools. Here is a detailed guide on how to create this vibrant dye:

1. Gather the necessary materials:
– Amarberry: These can be found by harvesting the small orange bushes that grow abundantly in various regions of the Ark.
– Tintoberry: Similar to amarberry, tintoberries can be obtained by harvesting the blue bushes found throughout the Ark.
– Narcoberry: These can be gathered by harvesting the purple plants scattered across the Ark.
– Gunpowder: To create gunpowder, you will need to combine charcoal and sparkpowder in a mortar and pestle or an industrial grinder.
– Waterskin: You will need an empty waterskin to mix the ingredients together.

2. Collect the berries:
– Start by gathering a good amount of amarberries, tintoberries, and narcoberries. The exact quantity will depend on how much tangerine dye you wish to make. It’s always a good idea to have a surplus of berries.

3. Create the dye mixture:
– Fill your empty waterskin with water. You can do this by standing near a water source and pressing the action button. Make sure your waterskin is equipped in your hotbar for easy access.
– Open your inventory and select the waterskin. Then, add the amarberries, tintoberries, and narcoberries to the waterskin by dragging them onto it.
– Once the berries are added, you will see a crafting progress bar indicating the creation of the dye mixture. This process may take a few seconds to complete.

4. Add gunpowder to the mixture:
– After creating the dye mixture, you will need to add gunpowder to give it the tangerine color. Open your inventory and locate the waterskin containing the dye mixture.
– Drag the gunpowder onto the waterskin to combine it with the dye mixture. Again, you will see a crafting progress bar indicating the process.

5. Craft the tangerine dye:
– Once the gunpowder is added, the dye mixture will transform into tangerine dye. You can confirm this by checking the waterskin’s inventory, where you will find the newly created dye.

6. Applying the tangerine dye:
– To use the tangerine dye, equip it in your hotbar and select it like you would with any other item. Then, approach the target object or item you wish to dye.
– Press the action button to open the radial menu and select the option to dye the item. You can now choose the color slot you want to dye with tangerine and apply it.

Remember, tangerine dye can be used to customize various items in Ark, including clothing, structures, and even creatures. Experiment with different combinations and applications to create unique and personalized designs.
