    Talked to Damon on this for confirmation, but looks like its just the lighting on the item. I'm getting white snowballs in areas with more natural or white lighting. Probably gonna be an intended feature as colored lighting would apply onto white objects fairly readily. Thoughts?

    @Elgarion Thanks for discussing w/ Damon.

    I placed one in Festival which is a Snowy POT - and they look much better there. Anywhere else, they seem to pick up the lighting and refract it, almost like a metallic material .
    Maybe the material can be switched to something that looks more like snow? Otherwise, maybe the fix is to change the name from 'Snowball' to 'Iceball' - since that seems how they are behaving in game re: the lighting?

    Here's a closeup in Festival - notice how metallic it looks.
