    Why is red paint so expensive?

    Post by WhiteBonne on Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:12 pm

    In the Misadventures Tron reveals she had planned to paint all the caps of the Servbots red, but couldn't afford it.

    They spent a million Zenny on a huge airship...

    How could she NOT afford it? Is red paint really that expensive?

    I don't really know how to answer this. At least she painter her favorite Servbot's cap red.

    However, it is true that they were in debt...

    It probably is. Remember the curator in Legends 1? If she wouldn't buy any more red paint after she ran out, it mustve been because the price was too high. Razz

    ...omg... Skybane, I never thought of that! You are on to something. Two pieces of evidence of the rarity of red paint.

    Must be because they generally have difficulty cultivating whatever plant produces red dye—actually, just cultivating anything would be a problem with such lack of land, lol.

    Buildings and cars—wait, that complicates things.

    Red paint can't be very expensive if large objects are painted with them, yet red dye is expensive for Tron? Perhaps it was just inconvenient for the Curator to haul her ass to the paint shop, and Tron was being irrational again.

    Roll, lol.

    I think the car you used was remodeled to red, or was it orange? And also, part of the flutter was red.

    That paint shop the developers couldn't put in due to deadlines and rendering issues, lol. It was back in the day, the era of wrestling with your own hardware.

    What if they made their own paint? It would be a why it's so expensive: It's lacking on Terra and people tend to overprice it.

    We don't over-think things in Legends for a reason, guys—now we're talking about finding the paint shop!

    Maybe Reverbot Eye is used to make red dye? Maybe that's why the shady guy was selling it?
