Anything to entertain friends. It doesn't have to be quite fire pro wrestling level character creation, but with these sprites I would think you could do a lot of variety. I think I'll second the idea of protective clothing, too. Kind of Warriors 1979 with hockey masks and S&M looking gear. Chainmail would be pretty funny like you can walk 1-1,000,000th of the speed but can't be bitten except for in the face. It could be craftable lol. So I imagine my friends getting decked in ridiculous gear to draw them off but ultimately failing often enough. A moment we always have on my server is coming back as someone after dying so if I can climb up the sheet rope to meet my friends dressed like an Elvis impersonator, I think that would be tremendous.

I have something else to suggest, shoes:

- Sport shoes to make you run faster/longer

- Football/soccer shoes to make more damage when stomping zombies

- Boots for better insulation

 

Feet injuries if you walk/run for a long time with unadapted shoes like city shoes/heels or even bare feet or with destroyed shoes.

 

And of course socks being finally equipable for better insulation and comfort

Just some outfit ideas I can think of on the spot

 

Pilot (general airline and military variations)

Hospital patient (hospital gown etc)

Nurse

Trucker

Hazmat suit soldier (I think this is in but not sure?)

Hunter (camo pants and hat + high vis, found in forests)

 

Also as another person mentioned a ghillie suit. Will it be possible to have special outfits like this give you + to sneak or are we going to far RPG with this?

This may be off-topic, but where are the mullets? It's the early nineties in Kentucky, right? I want my character rocking a glorious "Kentucky waterfall" and a cutoff shirt.

Some clothes to add to the list (hopefully)

 

-Nun outfit (You don't know, maybe a nun was taking a stroll in Muldraugh when zombies happened!)

-Fur coats and jackets for the survivors who want to be warm and fancy while they run for their lives

-Riot helmets (maybe in the future armor updates)

-Business suits (both for ladies and laddies)

-Clown costume (honking nose optional)

-Swimwear (bikinis, one piece swimsuit etc...)

 

Also, since the apocalypse started around July would Halloween costumes be out of the question? like those skeleton costumes and Dracula capes?

I like every idea in this thread, but I feel that leather, kevlar, and denim clothes counting against scratch/bite chance in particular would be game-changing.

Maybe safety gear in general ie dust masks, leather gloves/aprons/boots, etc could be worked into the occupational and hobby items and loot?

 

More period-correct clothing (and also decorations) could add a heap of flavour too.  T-shirts, flannel, vests, boots, too much denim, long shorts, hoodies, and cut-off camo pants were all staple.

I recall there being quite the flower-power resurgence at that time too, but I didn't like in Kentucky.  Lennon shades, tie-dye, white linen clothes, bell-bottoms... ugh.

Obviously you don't want to step on any toes in terms of trademarks and the art and IP of others in general, but there are certain images and styling that could bring on the vibes without causing too many issues.

Eg a white stick figure on a black and/or blue background with red impact lettering underneath might not be appropriate, but there are a lot of other ways to reminisce:

Lots of bold black and white lettering, black and white portraits (particularly of sporty-looking gents wearing jewelry), long hair on everyone, cartoons, cut-up effects, squiggly lettering, gritty and washed-out sepia images, and of course skulls absolutely everywhere.

Nobody owns that  : ]

I thought about some prison jumpsuits with different colors for different inmate before they turned into a zombie.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prison_uniform#Color_designations

 

Dark red: supermax, or "worst of the worst"

Red: high-risk

Khaki or yellow: low-risk

White: segregation unit or in specific cases, death row inmates

Green or blue: low-risk inmates on work detail (e.g. kitchen, cleaning, laundry, mail, or other tasks)

Orange: unspecific, commonly used for any status in some prisons

Black/orange and white stripes: unspecific, commonly used for any status in some prisons

I haven't seen much hunter clothes (camo/orange vests, hats, etc).

 

Will we expect some?

 

We have a lot of different camo stuff (including hats), orange vest are coming too :)

Bear in mind we didn't show all the outfit (i have currently 75 male outfits & 64 female :D) and a lot of your suggestions are in! Keep 'em coming tho, there's some wonderfull ideas in there, most of them added to the pipe or has been done!

A game set in the 90s would be incomplete without bucket hats, baggy jeans, flannel shirts and dungarees (though I'm fairly certain I spotted the latter in a recent video).

Something that'd be interesting to see, is a  Combat 'Press' Outfit, pic related.

i'd think this would be nice to see, you could justify it as one of those journalists who were covering the exclusion zone ended up getting infected when the zone collapses in the early days of the outbreak.

Love that there's a suggestions thread for this! Can't not throw some ideas out there:

Bomber/flight jackets (The leather ones with the white fur collars and cuffs)

  • Pilot uniforms (Not sure if suggested/needed. Commercial, military etc. Maybe helicopter pilot uniforms for news crew members a-la frank west's dead rising crew?)
  • Journalist uniforms, cameras around the neck and such maybe.
  • Those multi-colored jackets in pastel checkerboard patterns, like bright green on red on blue in random square sections that were all the rage.
  • Reflective pants, I remember those a ton.
  • Newsboy caps, flat caps and such. Blazers too, college professor style.
  • Hip bags? Not sure if possible there, satchel sort of things.
  • Wrestler costumes, superhero costumes, etc.
  • High school bomber jackets, varsity stuff. Maybe those graduate gowns and caps for the fun
  • Plaid was a big thingimage.png
  • High-waisted things like jeans, skirts etc - while on that topic:
    • Sundresses, skirts and such that aren't tight to the skin - haven't see any of those previewed yet! Without their own models these items look kinda strange
  • Over the top rich people outfits. Giant fur coats, tuxedos and the like.
  • Mechanics jumpsuits?
  • Secret service uniforms perhaps. Could suggest government cover-ups.
  • Sequin tuxedos, yes please.

That's all I could think of for now, long enough list for one person anyway! Hope some of this helps :)

Some early video-game/computer systems t-shirts would be nice to have, Amiga/C64/Sega (i remember seeing them in the 90s).
