New added Character Customization added on version v 0.014 is the first step to create a system that allows creating patches and modding.
On this first version it lets you customize the textures of the hair,shirt,pants and shoes.
To Change the way your avatar looks you need to go the your house on the first town ,
and go to the room where you first started after finishing the first tutorial ,
and go to the closet with the particle effects and press interact "E".
After Interact with it a new window will open with the options you have to change and it will set the camera to "Free Camera Mode"
and you can move the camera to the angle you want so you can see your avatar better,
in the future i may add more but for now it only has the option to change the textures/color of the hair,shirt,pants and shoes.
After Changing the look of your avatar you can just walk away or press interact "E" again to close the window.
And now i will show you how you create or modified textures so you can use them in the game.
First you will go to the Game Folder
And open the Wolrds_Data folder and then the "StreamingAssets" folder
Then navigate to Characters\Players here you will see the male and female folders.
Enter the one you want to change or add
For this example lets say i want to change the color of the shirt ,i will have to open the "Torso" folder and inside of it i will find the textures and the loading file like this
I can just change the existing textures and they will be loaded next time i load the game.
But i want to add a new one i will have to go to the loading file and add the name of the new added texture to it.
The loading file is on json format so you can just type in name of the new texture to it and then it will be loaded in game.
To add a new one just add a "," at the end and then in the next line add the name of the texture you want to add make sure to add the extension of the file type i use png so i add the .png as well .
Here i just duplicate the Chest_1_12 and change the color to pink and name it "SomeNewTexture" just like in the loading file.
After that you just need to load the game and change to the new look!
This and everything else may change in the future since the project still on alpha.
Saying that hope you like it and any feedback is always welcome!.
