[Limelight] Plus Sized Female Character!

Hello Episodians!

You may have seen our new plus-sized female character featured as the lovely Prija in Don’t Call Me Angel… and now she’s ready to be a part of your stories! Our team is ecstatic to be able to share something we know you’ve been asking for. Being able to add characters and assets to our library that better reflect the diversity we see in the world is important to our team, as we continue to build out the Writer’s Portal so that you can tell the stories you want to tell.

You’ll see the distinction between our Limelight characters as Generic Female, Plus Female, and Generic Male throughout the Portal, to make it easy to identify what kind of character you’re creating, or what sort of outfit they’ll be wearing.

These new stock characters will be the defaults to represent our plus-sized character when you create one, but every option available for skin tone, facial features, and hair that is currently available for our Generic Female character is available for our Plus Female character.

In addition, we’ve released three new faces we’ve created for both our Generic Female and Plus Female.

The release of our Plus Sized Female character also comes with a capsule wardrobe, which we’ve tailored to be versatile for the endless possibilities on Episode, whether she’s at the beach, in the office, hitting the club, or chilling out at home.

This release also includes every animation and prop that is currently released for our Generic Female character, so she can easily become a part of your stories!

We’ll be continuing to release clothing for her regularly, with a monthly Plus Female art release. Due to technical limitations, we will not be able to convert every piece of clothing that exists in our catalog, but we want to make sure our Plus Female character has a wardrobe that allows her to fully participate in stories of all genres.

We’d love to hear from you on this release. If you encounter any issues, please let us know by writing to our Support team about the problem as soon as you can!

Our team has been so excited to share this with you, and as always, please let us know your thoughts below.

With Love,

The Episode Team

Our art team also wanted to shout out @writingspirit for pointing out the neck shadowing issue in the first thread, which you should see fixed with this release! :slight_smile:

Amazing! I wasn’t planning on releasing my story until you guys came out with this feature. My MC is plus-sized.

Wow, thank you guys for the shoutout! :open_mouth:

I was thinking the neck looked different from those earlier screenshots. I’m currently looking at it in portal and personally think it looks much more natural than it did in the initial release. Nice fix. :art:

How will this work with customization? Will we need to go the extra mile by coding if/else/point systems to allow the readers to choose their body type??

For a moment, I thought you said not very body positive.

I love Limelight because of the diversity in skin tone and hair patterns, so thank you for making even more diversity available to us! I hope to see some user stories where we can select which body type represents us best when we’re customizing! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Melani3, could you tell us the names of these three new faces please? I think I know at least one of the three you’re talking about, but I’m not seeing any of these new ones in Generic Female.
