yes tommy, those are your shoes. for now. one day i'll change it because i don't prefer your stuff, but for clarifying the future, it does for the moment.
The bandana and flannel hoodie are ports done by myself in a rule that I will only break here, if only to explain my avi away to those who care (and especially to those who call it an inksona when it isn't jfc stop with that nonsense)
I'd remained with pinksquid for a number of reasons. Back in 2015, we obviously only had inklings. When Squidbot made his gear packs, at the time, in-game, I was using the zekko hoodie and the hi-tops. He later ended it with the bobble hat and that was the set I had then, I repeat, I had THEN.
Since that point however, I'd made many changes and adjustments, however I wasn't fully gonna change my avi to an octoling if they were to remain as they were originally, not that og octolings are bad (hello, arie?) just that I still preferred pinksquid. But when the octo expansion came to be, I was exploding.
My story that I'd made with arie could finally come to a close, along with everything I'd written about that society, which I still want to bring to light, don't get me wrong.
But as more info about the new octolings came out along with the personality that was to the surface I began to relate more and more with that versus the pink squid I'd had since 2015. They're serious-natured, adore technology and also sit in a crouched hunched fashion. I'm extremely serious-natured, my adoration with technology lead me to gmod and modelling and stuff, and I also sit in that crouched fashion. Octolings in splatoon 2 are essentially me personified.
Along with the fact OE itself is just amazing and I adore it and its story and how creepy it is and the lot of it.
I'd been thinking of changing it for some time and then I came across someone having ported a version of them, and it took me a while to actually get to see them and they're ok, the eyelids are just really crap.
The gear I've chosen now are for a number of reasons.
The fishfry bandana looks really good on octolings, plus, the fishfry bandana is broken in-game, actually. The UVs of the tcl texture (the tcl texture is what colours the model in your team colour, tcl means team colour) do not match the albedo texture on the girls. Underneath the left flap of the tied knot (from the persp of them wearing it, their left), you can see this discrepancy in-game, only on the girls. This is due to, and I investigated this when I ported my unfinished version, probably the developers confusing themselves when they changed the design.
In version 2.3, in the top left of the texture, there were what used to be shell swirl patterns (which align with underneath the left flap according to the uvs) on the biscuit bandana on the girls and the boys kept the current design. You can even see this in the icon, underneath the left flap there's nothing there (must've been using the girl's one), then, in version 3.0, when they introduced the black one, the girl's fishfry bandana changed designs to match the male one so that it was basically the black fishfry bandana but colourable, but they forgot to change the tcl texture, so now the colour is bleeding out of the lines, while simultaneously, the star design underneath isn't coloured properly. You can see what they're aiming for since the boy's one isn't broken, in that the colour stays within the lines, but the girl's one is broken and will remain broken for until nintendo notices, which i've pinged them about it but obviously i'm just some random in australia, so i've been wearing it in-game and will continue to for until it's fixed, so this represents my glitchy hacky side i guess. They're close to what they are in-game, I really like turquoise, and that's close to the inverted colour of probably a light blue
there used to be a third headband, it goes HBD006, HBD007 and HBD008. 7 is the fishfry, 8 is the black one (plain texture, no tcl), and 6 must've been some unused one because in 3.0 it's kind like a more shaded version of the black one. They made themselves a maze with the alterations between 2.3 and 3.0 and these 6 versions of the model (they each have gendered variants).
If they were to fix it, i'd pick the knitted beanie because its shape and light pastel colours are a joy to witness (should be proof enough that most of my charas wear it)
I like the annaki flannel hoodie a lot, really loose-fitting, like how I'm generally lazy, and it's also red which is visually similar to the zekko hoodie in a way, so I particularly like it. I'm more of an everyman type though, so I could pick anything else as well really. Like how I pick anything in summer it wouldn't solely be the flannel hoodie everywhere I go
and I liked the red hi-tops originally because they had ink resistance up. Since any piece of gear can have any ability now to their type, it's just a matter of what do I like visually. Blue, light blue is my very favourite colour equal to if not more than pink. In-game, I also use them often, a splatnet 2 version of ink resistance up with ink recovery up sub abilities (only on my american save).
also in-game my main weapon is now the neo splash-o-matic, since splatoon 2 is far more heavy on the splatting elements and also is much more focused on that than the wild-ness of splatoon 1. While for early game, including my new jp and eu saves I will continue using the 89 as a weapon I can fall back on, the neo has proved itself a new friend in my 100% save file, since I enjoy relying on bombs.
if you want to continue using pinksquid especially if you don't have access to this stuff yet ok, fine, i'm not about to go promoting everywhere with this since I have things to do like making maps, but after caring about them so much and playing as one in-game, I think it's about time to change it
besides sad pinkolol was made because user betrayed and backstabbed me and that was in october time for change
so here it is
hopefully i can continue to get maps out because again i'm sick of posting nothing here and i really didn't want to have to do this next but if i put it off any longer it's never gonna happen
and i say that knowing nothing will happen anymore thanks jerks
enough with that there's the update
also the pink's the same lolol as if i'd change that when i like it too much, same with the skin and eyes (only it's skin 2 on these models....)
