It’s not that easy, they can’t just copy and recolor assets, they need to develop them and test them. Even if they just change an outfit’s color, it could still have glitches and things they need to fix.
I also don’t think it’s fair to assume that’s there’s “only one” person working on creating outfits, as all outfits are produced a quality that I don’t think only one person could produce. And if they is only one person, it’s not really your place to “suggest” how Episode should run its company.
You’re right, it can’t be easy and it must take a lot of time and work for just one item. Even some of the stuff that does get released occasionally still has little bugs (like stuff that disappears behind hair when it shouldn’t).
We’ve also got to remember that they’re not just creating items for the clothing updates that we get almost every week, but also clothing for both released and currently unreleased featured stories that the community users don’t have access to yet.
Usually when we get huge clothing releases, it’s a backlog of stuff from featured stories that wasn’t released to the community (like the police uniforms for LL. Hint hint👀)
I think they should stop releasing clothing for featured stories and start on community ones. The reason @CoraMae said only one person is working, is because we still haven’t even received sneakers for females. Something as important as that. And about changing color, there’s always something called hue & saturation.
I think we’re getting enough content, it’s just that sometimes WHAT we get seems weird (maybe there are reasons that we as users don’t know about for why they make what they make first, though).
Like, as you say, we’re missing a lot of basics like sneakers and flats for female characters. Also cheerleader uniforms, sports wear, police uniforms, and other things that are commonly used in Episode stories.
…but we DO have ~Easter wear~ and ~floral suits~ for men!
