Here's another skin for you guys.





Well how about this...

Skins can't be pieces of equipment the player wears in their current backpack/head slot, I mean what hat/armor could WX wear to look like that? In my opinion skins will be an option at the character selection screen and will simply change the look of the char you select from the moment you spawn in the world.


Nice WX skin either way!

In my opinion skins will be an option at the character selection screen and will simply change the look of the char you select from the moment you spawn in the world.
 mainfunctions.lua supports this:
local function OnUserPickedCharacter(char, skin)    local function doSpawn()        TheFrontEnd:PopScreen()        TheNet:SendSpawnRequestToServer(char, skin)    end    TheFrontEnd:Fade(false, 1, doSpawn)end

I believe the current skin-related items may each fill one of two roles:

  1. a pseudo-equippable that occupies a slot unless something else is in it (this is kind of how the top part of Wilson's hair works, for example, it gets hidden when a hat is worn). There was a recent change to the symbol names used to hide/show hats and hair on equipping and unequipping hats -- before it would hide/show HEAD_HAIR, now it hides/shows HEAD_HAT. That seems to suggest this kind of skin "item".
  2. A reskin of a normal item. E.g. Mad Science Wilson's axes look like bonesaws. Maybe he'll even have a separate animation for sawing down a tree.

I'm not seeing a good fit for the treasuremap or stemcell in that model, though. I'm still hoping treasuremap is map-related rather than skin-related... stemcell might be a general-purpose item that allows one to change skins.


welp... now that I wrote it I made a nice dichotomy and then said it was false. but maybe it helps picture how the other skin-related stuff may work, e.g. Military Wolfgang's hat could be either of those roles.
