Well I do, hard to have those demi-humans without the optional parts.

(Some bunny ears might also be useful but I assume someone would tackle that while making a second mature pack...)

I've been doing a lot of work around the house today, and I realized MS doesn't have a work pack. It could be simple things like sweeping, vacuuming, raking, mowing, etc. or more dedicated things like using a jackhammer, a drill, a hammer....

Oh. I didn't realize it when I started typing this, but some of those would be handy for horror animations.

Yes that would be great. In Marshall's Agency I had a guy using a chain saw. The way I made it work was to use another animation for the man and then have the chain saw mobile and move along with the man. It came out pretty good too and looked like he was holding it. Actually he was using it to cut a pineapple for the scene of the chain saw cutting the pineapple, I didn't need to show the man at all but just the chain saw moving up and down and show the pineapple split. But definitely more hand held props and more animations are a must. This I know is more difficult for them to do because to make a prop attachable and usable for a puppet it has to attach to the right bones and that is very time consuming.

Sports and fitness animations. Kicking a football would be especially nice. Swinging a racquet, lifting weights, bending and stretching, even throwing a dart...

I don't know why MS puppets are so slender. Their exercise routines seem to consist of a bit of running and jumping, and sitting cross-legged on the floor in an 'I'm too unfit to get into lotus' position smile.gif

LOL!
Yeah I think they stay slender because all they can do is run, fight, dance and OTHER things... blink.gif and to be honest, maybe that's all anyone has to do to be fit wink.gif

Seconding the hospital pack. Definitely needed.

Plus we should be able to drive the other cars now... especially the cop cars.

A high school pack. I know the pack with the cat ears has a lot of hats in it so I know a Tiara would probably depend on the code that is holding that pack up as well.

Prop wise perhaps:
A locker that can be opened or at least have an "open" "not open" variety for cut shots.

A chalkboard.
Student desk.
Teacher's desk.

And perhaps a wall texture or two for schools.

Then student and student-sports costumes that can be tinted for school colors.
And matching face paint for crazy people into the sports team whatever.

1000 MS?

A working sports team would have to be a separate pack with it's own animations and cost but the above would pair up nicely with your "goal" of the dark romance pack, hahahaha 8^)

Multi layer actors would be useful. I tried to get a skeleton inside a bathrobe once, with partial success. I know that in iClone they have puppets that have a second (even third and fourth) layer which can be mapped with diffuse, cut with opacity, etc. It makes fashion design something the end user can do to a much greater extent.

I really like the MS costumes, but making entire bodies underneath them and sorting out the z-buffering for transparent parts could go a long way.
