Support my thread about adding more baby animations for Ink:


Yes and also need to change the section choose body design instead of seeing hair and with all colors then there was a picture of hair then selected color by picture and also need an option for a body man with muscles and body injured as a scratch and a full person and children faces more young and if you can add an option to put some Music you want Oh and hip hop dance moves and props to eat and drink they sit and option that the figure will be straight on a bed and not right left and also that the background image will not be small and then around black For example I want a deep background and precisely where the background is already small


You can make your own feature request threads for those. Make sure to follow the guidelines when making them. :wink:

I think also unbuttoning and buttoning up shirts and jackets would be a cool animation for you list

You should make a thread for these to get them more noticed but by the Episode Team. :slight_smile:


I think they’re forcing to write in Limelight on us.
How many things we asked for INK long time ago and it was updated for Limelight, and we still don’t have it? :frowning:
H&V contest? These adorable Superhero outfits only for LL!
Writing Fantasy? You have to use LL, because INK doesn’t have a proper clothing.

These are just examples.

In my opinion, once they add different body types to LL, the INK is dead :sob:




OMG, i would like to have more clothes, animations, etc. Please episode notice us <3


Yes! Especially for the males, they literally have no clothes :joy::sob::sob: we need more sitting animations! and more female clothing like limelight!


I swear if they ever get rid of Ink for good, as in no longer allow to feature Ink stories or add any updates at all, I’ll likely rage quit Episode. Call me a drama queen, but that’s simply how I feel.

According to the large amount of members still loving and using Ink over Limelight, it needs to live. :sneezing_face::triumph:


I’m with you on that one!! :crossed_fingers:t3:


I live for INK!!! :heart_eyes_cat::heart_eyes_cat::heart_eyes_cat::heart_eyes_cat:


You’ve got my support :hugs:

More Ink clothes: Ink Beach Day Part 1 :tada:


Hey everyone, we’ve addressed this before on the old forums. I’ve reposted our response here for your reference.

UPDATE: The last Ink update was released in September of 2018. There are no more Ink updates coming.

"Hey guys!

We understand the community’s love for Ink is immense, and we appreciate the dedication to the style. However, Ink is built off of older tech that we just can’t keep supporting as we grow and improve Episode. Limelight is a newer, easier system to work with that allows us to make new clothes and other assets more quickly.

“Are you discontinuing Ink and shutting it down?”

Nope! Ink will still be available for your stories and we will still have our own Ink stories to finish. We do need to stop developing new features and community art specifically for Ink as a style. This isn’t the end of Ink and we aren’t shutting it down. We are continuing to work through the existing closet and will release everything that we can moving forward. In order for our platform to advance and improve the way we write stories, we need to focus on developing Limelight. With the help our community we hope to improve Limelight over time.

“Are you ignoring our requests?”

We love Ink too and we hear all your love and concern about its future. The decision to stop developing Ink is one instance where the voice of some of the community is not in line with the long term goals Episode has as a platform. To continue to develop Ink would prevent us from adding to Limelight and improving our platform in the future.

“Can you give us all the hidden stuff from Ink?”

We’re working on it! We’ve gone through every Ink asset we have and it turns out the list is longer than we thought. Previously we told you that we would be releasing Ink items until at least the end of 2017 and we are happy to say we still have more sets in the queue for the coming months.(UPDATE: The last Ink update was released in September of 2018. There are no more Ink updates coming. ) Unfortunately we can’t give you everything that has ever been made for Ink. There are certain pieces in the catalog that we just aren’t able to release and they fall into three general categories:

  1. Any item that was ever in a gem choice has to stay restricted.

  2. Anything that was created as a part of a celebrity likeness or specifically for an IP story (Demi, Mean Girls, Clueless, PLL, Dolan Twins, etc) has to stay restricted due to the terms of the agreements we had in order to make those stories.

  3. Some items we make never really work correctly (the male athletic body and face are examples) and can’t be released because they can break your story, cause crashes or generally give readers a bad time.

Lastly, some of you have mentioned items in stories like PLL, Clueless and Cameron Dallas that look like they are part of the Ink style. Unfortunately, they are not. In addition to being assets created for IP stories (and not eligible for release) they are also not actually Ink assets - they just look like they are. For a brief period of time our internal team was working in a style that was a hybrid of Ink and Limelight that allowed us to speed up our story production. This style was never intended to be released publicly and the items won’t work on Ink or Limelight characters.

“How is Ink outdated?”

As a mobile platform we have to innovate and update our technology to stay current and competitive. Ink was built on a more technologically advanced system than Classic and Limelight is more advanced than Ink. Each of these art styles is accompanied by an underlying (if behind-the-scenes) technology upgrade allowing our storytellers to do more. These updates also make it easier and faster for us to create more assets. With each new style our artists learn more and are able to improve our production pipelines. Several of the most requested features from our community, like different body types or freckles are simply not easily achievable on our older styles - to move forward we need the freedom to expand and change so we can grow.

A good analogy for this is the development of animated films over time. Early animated feature films were hand drawn as was the standard at the time. Then later on films like Beauty and the Beast or Aladdin started using a combination of hand drawn animations and CGI because that was best tech available at the time. Now films like Moana or Coco are done entirely in CGI, the new standard for animated films.

This is analogous to what is happening with Episode art styles. We don’t stop loving our styles, but we have better tools available to us. Our goal is to always be expanding and updating the underlying technology for our platform to stay current. Our art will always be storytelling, but the tools we use to tell those stories will continue to change and develop.

Thank you!"

UPDATE: The last Ink update was released in September of 2018. There are no more Ink updates coming.


Thanks @Liz. I’ve never seen this thread before but I understand now Episode has to develop and move on, although it will be devastating to let Ink go. :frowning:


I 100% agree with this! Limelight get second and third trimester pregnancy outfits and we have one HUGE belly and that’s it! It’s hard to make pregnancy stories realistic!! Ink is my absolute favourite out of the 3 styles!!!


I appreciate you addressing this and I get that it’s outdated but I still prefer INK. It is nice to hear that you will still be releasing some other materials but I hope that you can make Limelight a lot better than what it is now


100% Agree on this!!!
