      The bug

      I shot a regular arrow on the ground and reloaded my world, the arrow now has particles as if it's a tipped arrow, yet when I pick up the arrow it gives a regular arrow.

      Code analysis

      Based on 1.11.2 decompiled using MCP 9.35 rc1

      The Color tag is only written if the arrow has a custom color. The problem is that the game calls the method net.minecraft.entity.projectile.EntityTippedArrow.refreshColor() when an arrow without Color tag is loaded. This method sets the color to the water color.
      This could be fixed by always writing the Color tag to make sure tipped water arrows keep their particles as well. Additionally the check if the Color tag exists when reading the NBT data can be removed then.
