new appearrance slots in bike setup

Post by BcMxKx37 »

Hello, I know this must have been brought up 1000 times or more, but I was thinking about the good things about other game that could be used in mxsim, and the big thing that came to mind was that all the boots and gloves are all connected to one png you select in the setup, what if you made it so it had a Gear page and a Boots page, as well as a Gloves page. So they are saved out seperately and you can mix and match your setup without having your pack be 10GB. Also goes with the helmets and goggles. Dont know if this is possible but would love to get some input

For gloves and boots, I think it's really easy to do it (for JLV and Creators).
For Creators :
- Cut the 3d model at the top of the boots, make legs a little bit longer to not have transparent space between boots and legs if boots are smaller, do the same for the gloves.
For JLV :
- Link the new boots and gloves to right bones on the game.
Well done, boots and gloves are separeted.

For goggles, it's a bit harder due to all helmets doesn't have the same size. So, the goggles will not have the same position and the shape of the strap are different too.

Sounds easy to me, but it usually isnt ever that easy :D

Drawing it all in one mesh/texture is faster. If anything I'd want to merge the helmet in with the rest of the rider.

Please, don't do that ! Team packs are already higher than 1Gb ... if you merge helmet, they will be a lot of bigger ...
I think other features could be optimized to allow separating mesh for riders (use multi core, optimise cache, generate LOD, ...).

We don't care if its faster we just want to have more customization so we dont have to save the same gear set multiple times

Why does everyone need 25 kits each? Just make 2-3 kits and be happy.

When your racing 17 rounds of SX me at least I’ll go through 10+ Sets of gear and be bored of them before SX ends

Shit I'd run what I ran in 2016 if it wasn't for TM_Infidel hooking me up with new stuff. Y'all too impatient.

Before I learned how to make gear I'd be fine with running 1 set for years but once you learn how and you start loading your personal folder with custom stuff, you get bored so quickly with certain setups. I can't even run the same bike brand for more than a season it's just too boring. Plus, getting fresh new setups that look new keep me interested in the game.
