We’ve updated the ARKPaint Converter (Link here). From now on, you can select which colors the converter will use. That means you won’t have to spend any more time crafting miniscule amounts of each color that in the end aren’t noticeable anyways.
Additionally you can now use it to modify the warpaint of various items.
Warpaint Modification Tutorial
Export a nearly empty (maybe just one dot) Warpaint of your dinosaur or whatever you want to create a template of the dinosaur you want to paint. Of course, you can also save an existing skin that you just want to modify.
Upload the PNT File from your directory (Steam/steamapps/common/ARK/ShooterGame/Saved/MyPaintings) to the converter page (link) to create a normal image.
Download the image from the last step and edit it with the tool of your choice (MSPaint, Photoshop, GIMP, …).
Upload the image in this tool
Make sure you import it as “DIRECT”. This way it will not get resized. You also can change the colors used to generate the image in this step.
Download the PNT file. Rename it to the same filename the original file had (the file you uploaded in Step 2). Move it back to the same folder as in Step 2
Load the PNT file onto your dinosaur in ARK.
If you need a more detailed insight – how to load a PNT file in ARK – just use this tutorial from Step 4. It’s basically the same as with signs.
