Script body type help!

So, I would like the reader to pick what type of body and although the choices show up, the plus female keeps showing up in the new scene when I picked the other ones and in the wrong name.
HELP!

You can’t change a plus sized character to the different body type options. You’ll need at least two characters (One plus-sized and the other one the other chosen type), if you want that.
You can use @/Dara.Amarie template for that, it’s easier and everything is explain there too!

(Probably just copy the body type part, if you only want that part)

I’m still confused. I used those templates and added the male choice too. I don’t want to change the plus.
I just want to give the reader a chance to choose what character they want to play as

Well, probably if you want an choice where the readers can choose their gender, you’ll have to add two story lines. One with the male and the other one with the female (If these’re the only options your giving)

So what you’re saying is that I have to make 2 stories one for male and one for female?

No, one story, but with duplicated lines. Like: With for example the male character, you’ll write the story normally, just how you’ve planned, and that’s the thing that’ll appear only when it’s the male option. For the female option you copy and paste that (so that you’ll have to exact same thing twice in one script), but you’ll change the male character to the female character only!
Another option would be, you write one part and use whenever the character appears the if command to say, if the character is male or female (But that’s a bit annoying if it’s an important character, which appears quite often.)
In the end you’ll need two characters (Three if you want an plus sized body type choice for female) one female and one male.

But how will I know their picked character will stay like that? Because with the opening scene, the plus is in when I chose the generic female

You need two base choices (Male & Female)
After this one was chosen, you can ask for the body types (Depending on the previous choice, you give female/male body types)
For plus sized you have to create a plus sized character, but that character only works for the plus sized option, so for female generic, soft and athletic is only for the not plus sized female character.

For saving those options you can use gains

If you give me some time, I can code you a basic example of that!

Sorry for the / behind every @ but otherwise it wouldn’t have let me post it :sweat_smile: Just remove them in you script!


Here’s the script. I noted a few thing down behind #, please read them. And please credit @/Dara.Amarie if you don’t add a cc ('Cause she isn’t added to the script yet!)
You have 3 characters (MAMC= Male Char.; FEMC= Female Char.; PLFEMC= Plus Sized Female) here, just replace them with ctrl + H to the names you want! (PLFEMC must be a Plus Sized character)! You can change the outfits to the ones you want (Just take care that for the body type choice the outfits show their stomach, so that you can see what body type it is). You can change the narrator text and the animations if you want ofc!

AND!
For outfit choices for the female char. you have to make an ‘if’ option (You have a gain above, for the plus sized char.) That’s what an outfit choice would look like:
if (MC_plussize) {
@/PLUSSIZE changes into PLUSOUTFIT_NAME
@/MAINCHARACTER becomes PLUSSIZE

} else {
@/MAINCHARACTER changes into OUTFIT_NAME
}

If you have some other trouble with the plus sized stuff you can read this:
Dara-Amarie Plus Size Body Type Choice

or you can message me on this topic or via PM!


Thanks for the templates, @Dara.Amarie!

It’s still not working for the female character. It’s still popping up as plus in every option

Could please you send me a screenshot of the script you have?

Mya is a not plus sized character, and you it a plus sized character?

And have you checked if Mya has a char. point? Mistakenly maybe…

And the line at the end of the female customization must have the ‘if (MC_plussize)’ command so that whether the plus sized character appears or not, depending on the choice.

And I recently noticed, the male body type choice is wrong (It’s an old version, before you were able to change the body type with ‘changes into’), replace it with this (Between the label Male_Char and goto Story:

You is the plus size and Mya is the generic and I’m still getting the same error

This is actually very simple as I have done it before. All you need to do is put the Dara MC gender picking template then you add her plus and generic template and then do the same in the male branch but with the male body selecting template. If you read what she has wrote with the templates you shouldn’t be getting any errors.

While previewing the different options, before choosing, is the character still generic?

Nope

That actually means that the character called Mya is a plus sized character, because I tried the exact same template out currently and it’s working
