i do apologize if this has already been discussed, but i haven't been on in a while, and i have seen the poll for dress sets, which kinda covers a part of my question.
i remember when the forum first came out that i made a long winded post (i have forgotten my username, ill probably pull it up later), and at the end i mentioned something about alternate clothing styles. as ive seen from the poll thread there seems to be some cosmetic customization in the works, but i decided to make a thread for my question since i don't know if that's fan based cosmetics, as seen with nsfw options (which in my opinion seems unnecessary. i mean there's already gonna be r34, and i don't think it fits the character, and we all know what a lood woman looks like, why need a small 3d model of it running about in a castle? imo it doesn't really add anything, and the libido high from seeing a naked woman is common all over the internet, so why bother really? i know what girl parts are, you know what girl parts are, and her body type is common (wouldn't call it "thicc", but nubile i guess), it just detracts form the character. to me its detracting from the art all for "aha, scantily clad/naked woman, doesn't that please my mind". also i guess the major face changes, like elf versions, seem unnecessary as well, as you guys got an artstyle going on and replacing it with a common long eared 3dcgi face doesn't fit imo. although i can see from a multiplayer standpoint how customization like that can help distinguish players, it just that it looks a bit silly to me to have something like "generic elf reskin". although it doesn't bother me much, just thought id comment on it).
anyways, my question is will there be visual changes regarding armor equipment, not just cosmetics like hats/masks. it doesn't have to be for every armor in the game, although that would be cool, but maybe enough to distinguish if the armor is tanky or whatnot (maybe a different look depending on def stat thresholds?). i don't know how min max-y or how hard the multiplayer is gonna be, but having the option to see what kind of defense your allies are packing would be a good gauge on what to expect form them/what their tanking ability is. also it would be nice to have some functional looking models as well as a bit of aesthetics. i dunno about anyone else, but short skirt, nubile girl (although you guys didn't go for the open breast option and added a nice looking plate so you can still have the gem(? i don't remember what curse she exactly has) rose showing, which is nice) from Japanese media seems worn out/overdone/too safe of a character design to me (im not sure id say it doesn't fit, because im not knowledgeable on the fashion of the period, but considering the idle animation and how the hips sway/skirt poofs it does seem a bit fanservice-y, although the pose does have an air of... posh? to it. i don't know what to make of the pose, but it does make me think about it, which speaks well to the design), and having the choice to wear something else, without leaving the realm of the aesthetics and setting, would be a nice touch, at least for me. it isn't something that will make me burn the game on the stake, but just something that's been on my mind.
i do apologize if my prose is too obtuse, im not good at neat/concise writing. no bulli
