But when you’re in a character creator and you hit ‘randomize’, maybe behind the scenes they are actually being skinned and reskinned (deskinned?)
sidenote: anyone ever think of the real life equivalents of different customization scenarios in games?
Changing the paint job on my car in Midnight Club
Me: “Okay, that Dark Blue is decent, but let me see it in Orange.”
Body shop employee: sighs “Alright, gimme a couple hours…”
hours go by…
Me: “Hmmmm it does look nice…could I actually check out the Medium Blue?”
Body shop employee: “GODDAMMIT”
Changing my character’s hairstyle
Me: “Just chop off everything, I want it super short.”
Barber: “No problem.”
Me: “Mmmmm you know what, can I see what I look like with cornrows instead?”
Barber:" You don’t know how hair works, do you?"
