Use this website to make use of CC templates

You’ll probably have to use the same method with Gain or Label

Such as If/Elif/else
If I’m right I’m not sure though !

At the end of customization you can display a set of choices:
NARRATOR
Which of the following describes your character’s skin tone the closest?

choice (SKINTONE_CHOICE)
“Light” {

NARRATOR
Thank you : )

} “Medium” {

NARRATOR
Thank you : )

} “Dark” {

NARRATOR
Thank you : )
}

Whenever you want to make use of a limb overlay matching to the choice of skin tone all you have to do is use the if/else/elif code, like so:

if (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Light”) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_LIGHT create
etc.

} elif (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Medium” ) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_MEDIUM create
etc

} else (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Dark” ) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_DARK create
etc…
}

do you have a limb overlay of all the different types of skin tones available or do you have the generic light medium dark kind of skin tones? if you have more than 3

you can use plenty of if/else/elif repeatedly

if (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Light”) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_LIGHT create
etc.

} elif (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Medium” ) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_MEDIUM create
etc

} else (SKINTONE_CHOICE is “Dark” ) {
@overlay LIMBSKINTONE_DARK create
etc…

} elif ((SKINTONE_CHOICE is “FAIR” ) {
SCRIPT DIALOGUE ETC…

} elif (SKINTONE_CHOICE is "etcetcetc) {
SCRIPT DIALOGUE ETC
}

To answer your question, No these codes are not just for 3 remembered choices, if that makes sense, you can use the same code after each other as many times as you want, My instagram is @uroojxx.episode if you need help or have questions in the future my DMs are always open :sweat_smile: :relaxed:
