So this is an idea that’s been running through my mind a bit. I’m not active on these forums so I don’t know if it’s been discussed before at all. My friends and I play games like Warframe and Team Fortress 2, both have a big focus on bringing in Community-Made Cosmetics (hats, armor pieces, weapons etc.). With MCC becoming this sort of “Almost-Live-Service” sort of game with it’s flow of retroactive content, I was wondering about the possibility of running contests where fans get to make weapon/vehicle skins, or the potentiality of some kind of armor modeler SDK for the same purpose?
Personally I think custom armor like that would be really hard given certain limitations the games might have, or replicating the style of the armor (and making an SDK while constantly working on the game would be tight to schedule in as well), so I’d see skins or ID nameplates being a lot more realistic for fans to make.
Obviously I’m not saying “oh just get the fans to make armor for the game” or “let anyone upload their own stuff” (although client-side would be kinda cool, admittedly) but I think it would be really cool if Community-Made Cosmetics made it in somehow.
Anyways, that’s all gamers. <3
