Some people are asking what else needs to be done to have this complete and it's the female version. Been a little busy so won't be done anytime soon (I also found it quite hard making the boobs look right :lol: ) I'll still try to complete it, but if anyone out there wants to give it a shot, go ahead! :D

Just a draft of what you could be doing:
Image
Most people just add boobs to a piece of armor designed for the male character and call it a female version. But as every fashion designer will assure you: men and women dress differently. In my opinion male and female version don't need to be identical - the cut can be varied for fashion reasons.

Yes, perfect example how you should not remodel a male armor for the female sprite.

Almost every other armor in TMW is the same.. why not stick to the format. :P

We'd like to change it?

Better variety, even if subtle, is a good thing.

Well I don't want to start the fashion revolution.. someone else is better suited. Here's my last try at trying to make it a bit different, I still think the one above is better and can be used.. but here's the female version without sleeves.

I think I prefer Crush's female version.

Let's just push it in for now before someone bothers to fix it?

So the shirt is the same for both guys and Gals? Has anyone tested it on both player sprites?
Cause right now it looks like the womans chest is sticking out on the side views.

You're right Don and it doesn't look good either. I'll change it back to WIP and redo the whole female set and make it look similar to Crush's. Don't know when it'll be done, hopefully in less than a month.

Good work Goku! Can't wait to see this armour in the game. Now, I do have something to say: the item that you have in your inventory is this shirt, say. You're a guy, and so you put it on, and it looks like this. And then you give it to a woman, and she puts it on, and suddenly - sproing - it looks different. I'd say make a Man's Version, give it Male and Female Sprites. The Female Sprite looks the same as the Male but has boobs. Then make a Woman's Version, give it Male and Female Sprites... the Male Sprite the same as the the Female, but doesn't have boobs.

~though actually, that sounds a bit overboard for a MMOPRG...

That's a gameplay desing annoyance we're going to avoid at the cost of minor visual silliness.

I did say it sounded a bit overboard, but I hate erasing words. When I write something I always keep it and if I want to rewrite it I make a new file.

~so I decided to post it anyway...
