And at this point I am 100% sure, almost no one on the forums plays the game anymore. cause topics that people in game think would work and think are good ideas the forums think is crap.
Huge disconnect from the forums and the game, makes me think that anything here is invalid as almost always the forums opinion is completely different then people in game.
Also from experience it does not take much work to make reskins of item like 30 to 40 minutes max for items as low detailed as in this game.
100% sure is a pretty big claim, are you ready to back that up? Because I'm a very active player so your 100% per cent is already wrong. And you play too. So don't be silly.
What I think is that it is a very small per cent of players that write on this forum but the ones that do are the very ACTIVE per cent also. So, in that way what most have to say on this forum have a good handle on the game. That includes you.
The thing is that we all have a very different view on what is necessary or cool. I'm a very visual player too and even though the basic idea of having more variety in the cosmetics of the survivors would be nice, the way you suggested of doing it by creating a completely new armor (taking time from devs, taking inventory space which is an issue for many etc) is not the way to do it. And I'm basing that on my view of the game.
Maybe the disconnect between the game and the forum is the fact that most here have much more experience what is a good idea, suggested before or game breaking. The fact that a random small group of people in chat agree with you has no value here. Or anywhere for that matter.
On the fact that it wouldn't be a huge issue to make re-skins might be true. But you are not the one to make that assesment. Con is. It is his game. And it has no bearing on your argumnet that you have experience in game development. You are not the developer of this game. They have much more experience developing THIS game than you so your word doesn't really have any value on this. Not to me at least. If Con thinks this was important or useful it would already be in the game. It has been suggested so many times already (the basic idea of reskins, that is)
And that is an outright lie, and you know it.
It is his (or her) opinion. Not a lie. I don't think your EVERY idea is horrible, if that is important.
