Themed costume templates?

Postby Banished Archangel » Wed Feb 08, 2017 9:02 pm

Would it be feasible to include costume templates that players can share with others for ease of costuming their own characters in a similar manner?

I'm talking about groups of players who want to easily adopt the same costume regardless of body type for purposes such as a SG with uniform requirements or to, oh, I don't know, maybe establish a skydiving club or a police department with little fuss. Otherwise, each player would have to painstakingly waste time selecting individual costume parts.

Perhaps an option for the "original" creator to download the costume file and share it with others to upload into the creator and they can personalize the final results?

I'm curious about this, too. My SG had uniforms for the various ranks. That would make things easier.

How about a "Display" pod at SG bases that show the "SG Uniform" - once you click on it, it gives you the option to load it into a spare uniform slot.

This would give the options of having specific "RAID Uniforms" as well:

Pod One: "standard" SG Uniform
Pod Two: "Stealth" Raid SG Uniform (Dark Colours gives the team a boost in stealth)
Pod Three: "Wild West" Raid SG Uniform (Equipping this gives you access to the "Wild West" raid)

These are all good ideas, and we will keep track of them. The first thing we did to enable players to coordinate costumes was to add the RGB spots into the CCT color wheel. This means that if you like a particular color, you can identify it precisely and re-create across your characters, or with your guild buddies. That feature is in the game right now.

Being able to share clothing choices somehow with friends doesn't seem like it would too challenging, and we would like to do it, but I always try to check with my coders first, before I commit to any specific mechanism. Checking with them is part of scope control, and we can't let the game be delayed because I agreed to something that is really hard to code, when I could have agreed to something easier, that also gets the job done. :)

But it is a key point that we are making a game that you can play with your friends. Coordinating costuming options is part of the fun! I guess you could say that your raid leader gets the red pants, and the fighters get blue, healer gets green (assuming there are pants involved, that is). That strikes me as sort of cool...Hmmm, would controllers get purple?

Controllers get no pants at all!

This is why all the enemies stop and simply stare, unable to perform any kind of basic actions...

Timmy says, "Dad, where are your pants?"

Timmy's dad replies, "Pants are for squares!"

So, Controllers have the Flash power inherently?
