To create more content for people so that they do not get bored with designing after getting all the items from the store, I am planning on adding a new system to the game, called Fashion Events.
You can unlock fashion events if you have the right amount of tailoring experience, as well as enough gold. Each fashion event has levels, where you will have to create a piece of clothing and style up your avatar to pass the level. Each level has different requirements.
From now on, every (or at least, most) item will have a fashion style attached to it. These can be styles such as elegant, cute, sexy or cool. Combine them together to create different fashion styles.
Eventually you will have to dress up your avatar to compete in this level. What you wear, combined with your hairstyle and even shoes – will count when competing in that level. So if the level asks you to wear the colour blue, but not the colour green, you’ll have to make sure you style yourself up like this!
Each level you complete will earn you a piece of clothing. These together form a themed outfit (think Halloween or Christmas or whatever). So basically each fashion event has its own set of clothing, and you have to complete all levels to score the entire outfit.
I am still brainstorming about this and figuring out how I’m going to make it all work, but there will definitely be something new and exciting to come! Eventually the goal is that I can keep adding more outfits as I please, giving the player more levels to complete.
This in turn allows me to create a gold sink for the player (players were earning too much gold with nothing to spend on), as well as giving the player a reason to create clothes (to collect the outfits).
Of course, I still need to work on this a lot! :D
