    Hey, everyone!

    With the launch of Hollowed Woods, we released over 50 new items, 30 of which were all-new clothing items. This was a big step for us. Each of these items had brand new textures made exclusively for TLOPO.

    Outside of the three new outfits we've made for Hollowed Woods, we've also developed a few for Peddlers. These will be released down the road when we're ready. You can preview one of the outfits, French Privateer, here and here.

    The next logical step is to get the community involved in what we're making, and that's where this thread comes in! You can suggest new clothing designs to us directly! This is no guarantee that the ideas submitted here will be added to the game, but myself and the rest of the content development team will certainly take a peek at stuff submitted here for inspiration!

    Unfortunately, there are some limitations to the types of clothes we can make at this time. For now, we can only do retextures of pre-existing clothing models. Now, this isn't as limiting as it sounds! For example, these two vests share the same model, but look completely different:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We hope to be able to add new models in the future, and if you have an idea that you really love that requires one, feel free to leave it below! Just know that it won't be considered until we've cracked the current issue.

    Any model in the game is usable, whether worn by NPCs or pirates. Although some NPC clothing styles like what gypsies wear may be a tad glitchy. Feel free to check out the wiki page on clothing for some inspiration.

    TL;DR:
    • Suggest new clothing items!
    • Either individual items or a full set.
    • We're limited to retexturing, no new models right now. You can suggest new models, but it won't be possible for awhile.
    • Not a guarantee that your suggestion will be developed, but we will look here for inspiration.
    • Please be as clear and descriptive with your idea as possible.
    Please note that any designs you make and submit in this thread may be heavily edited if they are chosen to be added to the game.

    That should be about it! Have fun coming up with some great new styles!

    Aye. I agree with both of these good gentlemen. Some honorable, law abiding outfits would be lovely.

    We have certainly considered the option, but it's unfortunately not as simple as it seems. EITC and Navy pants have the shoes attached as part of the model. This would need to be changed.

    In addition, the pants models clip with other clothing items such as shirts and vests. Not to mention that the female versions of both the EITC and Navy outfits are extremely bugged and would require an almost complete overhaul of the models (with the exception of the EITC coat which works perfectly and was retextured by Disney for the China Seas Warrior outfit).

    Overall the EITC outfit is most requested along with the EITC Admirals hat. maybe the developers can add a EITC Thug vendor that sells these outfits at fort Charles

    We understand that, but getting it functional, getting it done right and with quality, would require editing the clothing models, which we can't do at this time. When we are able, we will certainly look into it. We know how much players want this.

    Perhaps dresses (and additional colors) for the ladies. Perhaps like Swann's?

    The bonnets, and the long skirts the female NPCs have would be really cool to have added!

    How about we just release the EITC and Navy outfits just for men, and not worry about the boots and pants thing? So whenever you put in the Eitc/Navy pants it makes the shoe section go invisible. Easy, meaning anything in the boot slot would be disengaged and not have an overlay clipping issues between the boots you are wearing and the shoe pant one, model problem of the Eitc and Navy outfit.

    Bright long coats would be very neat to have. Something that has the model of a long coat, but is textured like a cotton jacket so it can be made into brights would be awesome.

    Also, more space to hold all this new clothing (current and future) would be a good addition :)

    A broader selection for male pirates' Shorts. That would be great!

    I know this is incredibly vague, but how about some male and female clothing items inspired by the Flying Dutchman's crew? I mean a retexture of something you guys can work with, not exactly like what the crewmen on Tormenta are wearing. I finally have a heart scar thanks to the Haunted Hollow, so something with a bunch of barnacles that looks very weathered would be neat. There's many crew members--each with unique designs in the films--so it would definitely be a good source of inspiration should you guys decide to make it.

    I love this! Something I would like to see is loot only ostrich hats that are black with bright feathers, one of each of the bright colors.
