Generally, a few more standard clothes meshes for older characters.

I make most of my own props and sets so what i would like to see are children and dogs and horses, animated of course and additional animations. Of course the character morphing feature in 1.4 is going to be very useful. A few of the modders are doing attachable usable props and animations in Milkshape and importing them into Moviestorm so you all should check out the modders section of the threads and look at what people are working on. When I get the time I will learn Milkshape too and be able to do animations but right now I am just too busy.

That's available in the restaurant pack I think.

Yes I know, but then the character has to sit at the dining table.
I'd like a character be able to drink while standing - and with the empty glass it just looks weird tongue.gif

Various sports would be popular I would think, including:

Hockey (of course this is top on the list, I'm Canadian)
Baseball
Soccer
Football
Bowling
Boxing


Also, a camping pack would be nice, including a backpack accessory.

I'm not sure this is what kkffoo is asking for, but I'd also like some more "normal" clothing for the female characters. There are a few "just wearing this around the house" outfits, but it's hard to dress folks for professional productions in what's here. Either the cleavage is too low, the skirt is too high, or the blouse is too short and results in the young (or not so young) lady's tummy showing. I get it that some find this appealing -- and indeed it's appropriate for a lot of productions, but when I'm trying to populate a scene for a safety demonstration, the fact that the majority of female outfits make them look like little trollops is a bit disconcerting. There are lots of just basic contemporary clothes for the guys that don't show off their navels, or make you think that if they step just the right way you're going to get a little show....

Also, I'd like some more matching clothes for the two genders. Aside from the safety videos I'm using Moviestorm for in my professional life, I'm putting together a little sci-fi project, and I'd LOVE to have something that could work as a matching uniform for both genders, but that doesn't look like they're about to run out into the desert (or jungle) and start shooting. The one-piece jumpsuit for the guys would be great as a unisex uniform, if only it were available for women, too. (And, now that I think about it, why can't we have women dressed in cover-alls? Don't women work in garages, too? And as house-painters?)

Also, I'd LOVE to be able to keyframe objects in the directors view using the gizmo. Great idea, KV!

I agree with sfdex.

And it would be awesome if somewhere in the future we could combine upper body clothing, lower body clothing, and shoes separately according to our needs.

(Hehe, the MS Staff is working hard to get 1.4 out, and we're giving them already work for 1.5 and 1.6 tongue.gif)

That is difficult to do because the clothing is part of the body of the avatar so when you are adding clothing, you are also adding another body. When they get to the point where clothing is separate from the body,it would be possible though.

I agree that it would be great to see more traditional hairstyles and clothes...but I guess my short answer to the original question is: everything! lol

I wonder how difficult it would be for them to create white templates of those type of clothes? Then we could add our own textures to them. That would be pretty easy to do once the structure of the avatar and clothing were done. Other than Wonder Boy and now Vautrin, all the scripts I do are contemporary but you never know what some writer will have me do next. I am supposed to a sci fi movie for a fairly well known sci fi writer when I get The Man and Vautrin finished.

I'm having flashbacks to the hair debate. All we need now us for Jorge to go snap some photos in a parade.

I love a parade!

But I digress... Kkffoo, I've never heard the term "chawy," but less "chawy" is exactly what I mean. I'm also in favor of the ladies having pants. Here in San Francisco, not a lot of women wear skirts or dresses every day.

@lucindamac, I doubt they'll start handling clothing as different objects. Yes, DAZ Studio and Poser do that, but those intersecting and overlapping geometries are a big part of why DAZ Studio and Poser don't work in real time. Lightweight models are what make game-engine rendering possible. I think we're likely to only be able to tint different parts of outfits for variation. But I doubt I'd ever be able to put a skirt on "Famous Mark." (Unless Moviestorm decides to release "Urban Styles: The Drag Edition.")
