Endless hairstyles possibilities with minimal effort !

Recommended Posts

Some of you might remember that I already made this thread on the old forums. With LO taking over APB, and the game finally looking like it might become something, I think it is time to share this idea (again), which is still relevant in my opinion.

 

Every now and then I see people complaining about how there are only a few hairstyles that everybody is using, and asking for more alternatives. I’m pretty sure that no matter how many new hairstyles you can come up with, they will never fully satisfy them.

 

Or could they ? You know how car makers sometimes claim that their car can be customized with “X million possible combinations”. The idea is more or less the same : Building hairstyles from different layers, just like you can make your own outfit from different jackets, trousers and shoes.

The idea came to me after playing a certain game (we’ll call it JinGaku), and realizing that it allowed me to easily create almost any character I could think of by combining a handful of elements together.

 

Searching for other threads on the topic before (re-)creating this one, I found Yekaterina’s post about a similar concept. To give you a preview of how it could work, including the UI, here are a few screenshots that I took from a translated version of JinGaku’s character editor :

 

1st LAYER – FRONT HAIR
(With possibility to mirror the selected model, which is nice !)

2nd LAYER - BACK HAIR
(Note how there is actually only a few styles to choose from – about 30 I think ?)

4th LAYER – EXTENSIONS/DETAILS

Combine all this with APB’s ability to choose width/length of said hair, and you basically get one of the best character editor ever available in a multiplayer game. Instead of creating one new possibility at a time, you multiply the number of possibilities for each new element added to the game. From about 90~100 “parts”, you can easily get 250.000 combinations !

 

I’m sure you could even find a way to sell those as packs or individual items, and I’d definitely buy it if it allowed me to make the character I have in mind.

 

Cash in the bank + Happy players + More customization (which is a great selling point of APB) … It’s a win for everyone !

Hairstyle customization in apb is already pretty good for its time, i feel like they could greatly improve on it if the time for development was added.

 

but ye this is pretty cool too, like a mix match of different styles. I think that new souls like game, code vein had something like this, but a bit more advanced ofc...

So this is a porn game, isn't it? What's the game? I swear I won't tell your mom.

 

OT: I've always liked this kind of system, so I wouldn't mind something like it being added
