How I Would Adore the Customization System to Work
So my suggestion is nothing mind blowing new but something warhammer fans should be able to relate to.
It’s very simmilar to this:
[Materials 1-4] You have a few customisble slots for example: armor, main clothing, secondary clothing/s and fancy lining/s.
Every slot can only be filled be pretailored fitting colored fabrics. Meaning no clothing on armored parts etc. The Waystalker would have different barks to choose from in the armor slot while the Footknight has some metals.
[Badges] There should be a slot (in my wildest dreams) that changes the most visible insignia and maybe parts of the fancy lining.
Footknight for example proudly wears the emblem of Taal’s horn keep (I imagine at least) he could wear the one of Ostland or his vanquished old corps, Reikland, Helmgart, Uberskeik, Ussingen, Bögenhafen, Stormdorf, etc.
Witch Hunter has a fancy lining that reads: SIGMAR SIGMAR SIGMAR… you could do KARL FRANZ - KARL FRANZ - KARL FRANZ … or non text deco.
[Patterns] This would be +ultra changing mainly how main and secondary fabric is applied. I do not expect this.
Hats obviously use this system as well and will automatically match your clothing.
Vermintide 1 skins won’t use this system just like they can’t wear hat’s.
What happens with the unlockable skins and drops?
They are changed to unlockable insignia and fabrics.
Why do I propose this? I mean isn’t this just feedback containing only solutions that obscures the underlying problem?
Because your skinning system is incredibly lame. If you would have actually created matching skins containing at least one change in every module listed above this would not even be a thing. You could have made really awesome reskins that were not bound by anykind of rules like this but the fact is you didn’t you choose recolors with small fabric changes here and there. So I am proposing a way that you could take from this point onward that would reap the best results in my opinion.
You also have already done a similar thing for hoods, you have probably done something similar internally in order to properly create the different skins up to now and you really need to do this for the hat / skin combination anyway (If you are being honest) so doing this is not such a stretch.
I am not demanding this has to be done.
The game is great and fashiontide is not the most important part of it but it is a part of it unlike keep decorations.
It would be appreciated if any of the devs would contribute his subjective and liability free opinion.
