I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt
Man I am laughing my ass off ahaha.
I did this same paperdoll kinda thing a long time ago, I don't remember what I was programming, mebbe I done it more than once, but whatever, there's gotta be some of you out there that done something like this, where you gotta figure out how you want it to layer and make sure your boots look right with all your different kinds of pants and shit, its a total pain in the ass and I got a lot of touch-up work to do, but some of it actually came out kinda cool on the first pass, even though I was just sorta blundering through it as quick as I could.
I got forty different weapons and like eighty-something different pieces of clothing or so, so far, and I know I forgot some stuff I'm gonna want eventually, y'know, like Turbans, and I didn't even bother with Ringmail and all the different kinds of armor that you can't splash down some paint and whip up in a couple seconds, y'know, like, chainmail is easy 'cause you can bucket fill with a pattern and get away with it but junk like ringmail and studded leather is practically pointillism man you gotta put some time into it for it to come out looking right heh.
Damn my bowler hat is a little fuxxored up ahaha.
Mmm, I think I'm gonna get rid of my shoulder slot.
Its one of those "if its there, then you gotta use it" thingies, and the stuff in the shoulders slot generally covers up practically everything else, y'know, its where I got stuff like trenchcoats and pressure suits and biker jackets and cloaks and crap.
But if I combine it with "body," then you'll be able to pick out how you wanna look a little more, and it won't matter to the shoulder slot thingies, they all cover up whatever you got in the body slot anyways.
Only bad thing is that I won't have anywhere for capes to go, y'know, that's like, oh boohoo, no capes ahaha.
Dude, capes are like a curse AHAHA.
Yah, I'll have to combine platemail with surcoats and "suitcoats" and "dress shirt with no suitcoat" and "dress shirt with vest" and junk like that will all be separate thingies, too, but that's no big deal, I kinda had to do a little of that already anyways, might as well go all the way with it.
The important thing is that I got the ancient roman shit and Lovecraftian bowler hat dudes and all that other junk in the end, insteada everybody being stuck wearing trenchcoats and hazmat suits and stuff heh.
