The Paintbrush is used in combination with Dyes to paint Structures and Items.

The Paintbrush can also be used to apply Warpaint to your Creatures, other players or yourself.

Usage[edit | edit source]

To use a paintbrush, you first drag the wanted color on the paintbrush in your inventory. After equipping the paintbrush, you can "hit" (Left Mousebutton, Xbox: RT, PS4: R2) the structure or dinosaur you want to color with the brush.

When dying structures, you can now select which part of the structure you want to dye. Creatures, players and certain objects (like the War Map.png War Map or Single Panel Flag.png Single Panel Flag) don't have any paint regions to select from, but instead you can freely doodle on them.

The brush contains 10 charges of the selected color, so you can paint more than one structure part or with more than one color.
