Good job!

@JemU776 did you try the new (?) skin color in avatar? Are we able to use it in the portal? It’s called White Mannequin I think.

No, I haven’t tried but I’ll check it out :nerd_face:

Although that skin tone doesn’t exist in Characters (I can’t find it amongst the other skin colors on the web/portal)

I’ll test it out :smile_cat:

Almost forgot one more thing!

Freckles

Available in Limelight:

Male

  • Freckles Heavy (00-03) [for skin tones of all families 00-03]
  • Freckles Heavy (04-07) [for skin tones of all families 04-07]
  • Freckles Heavy (08-10) [for skin tones of all families 08-10]

Female

  • Freckles Heavy (00-03) [for skin tones of all families 00-03]
  • Freckles Heavy (04-07) [for skin tones of all families 04-07]
  • Freckles Heavy (08-10) [for skin tones of all families 08-10]

How to use the new freckles: You’ll notice that after each set of freckles exists a number range. What this means is that the freckles are designed to work on skintones within that number range only. An example of this is if you have a character with the skin tone Rose 05, you will need to use Freckles Heavy (04-07) or else the freckles will not be easily viewable on the character.” -quote from this thread: [Limelight] Freckles, Clothes, & Hair, Oh My!

And another thing: When you go to your script, on the right side, under preview you can find CC templates to add into your scripts.

Limelight

You’d click on Avatar - Limelight Female1 if you want a CC template for a Limelight female. If you want two females customized do NOT click on Avatar - Limelight Female1 for both of them since they will have duplicate labels-you need to use Avatar - Limelight Female2 for the 2nd female. Same goes for males. There are up to 6 CC templates for each gender so there’s room to customize 6 different girls and 6 different guys. Hope this makes sense ^^

INK


For ink, you have only two CC templates available (one is meant for a girl and the other is meant for a guy). You can click on Avatar - Female if you want to add a CC template for a girl into the script or you can click on Avatar - Male if you want to add a CC template for a guy into the script. You can add more CC templates but this would require you to change their labels and corresponding gotos. Also, the templates in the Writer’s Portal are limited in features so you can either add in all the missing features to complete it or use the full CC templates above in the first post, that I linked. Remember to give credit to the person who created those templates if you use!

Thank you so much for reading xoxo :black_heart:

Hi,
I am struggling! I’m pretty sure this is related to customizing characters but IDK. Maybe it’s just me but my character is not updating on outfits when I change her. Yes, I click save. Every. Single. Time. Despite this, I am having some serious issues. On outfits, it won’t save.
This so weird. Pls help!

#20

*This IS so weird (grammar mistake).

#21

Hey welcome to the community!

And it could be because of an outfit glitch :thinking:

#22

An outfit glitch? This has never happened before…
What do I do if I have an outfit glitch? I checked the coding like a million times. Is there like a right or wrong way to write outfits?

I did this:

@PERSON changes into Funeral_outfit_dress

I don’t see what’s wrong here.

#23

This is the glitch I’m talking about:

Oof, thank you! You’re a lifesaver!
