TEMPLATES: Gem Outfit Choices

Hey everyone. Since returning, I’ve noticed a lot of people are using gems in their stories now. So I thought I’d make things easier for authors by giving them some templates for the outfit choices, as a lot of people are getting confused. For support the author gem choices, I’d recommend using @Dara.Amarie template on her website. Otherwise you can use the alternative ways below.

ONE GEM OUTFIT
This template is your basic outfit game with 1 gem choice.

Script
INT. GYM BASKETBALL SEA SPARKLE - NIGHT
@NAME enters from left to center

label OUTFIT_GAME_1

&NAME is idle_shiftweight_neutral_loop
NARR
What would you like to wear?

choice (Outfit_Game_1) 
<PREMIUM> "Premium Outfit" {

@NAME previews outfit Premium_Outfit
goto GAME_1_GEM

}
"Standard Outfit 1" {

@NAME changes into Standard_Outfit_1

}
"Standard Outfit 2" {

@NAME changes into Standard_Outfit_2

}

NARR
Is this what you want to wear?

choice
<PREMIUM> "Yes, I look great!" {

goto STORY_START

}
"No, let me try something else." {

goto OUTFIT_GAME_1

}

label GAME_1_GEM

        NARR
    Do you want to buy and wear this outfit?

choice (PREMIUM_OUTFIT)
<GEMS:5> "Yes, I look great!" {

@NAME changes into Premium_Outfit

}
"No, let me try something else." {

@NAME unpreviews outfit Premium_Outfit
goto OUTFIT_GAME_1

}

label STORY_START

OPTIONAL GEM OUTFIT
This template gives your readers to option to spend gems, without limiting their choice. I highly recommend using this template.

Script
INT. GYM BASKETBALL SEA SPARKLE - NIGHT
@NAME enters from left to center

label OUTFIT_GAME_1

&NAME is idle_shiftweight_neutral_loop

        NARR
    What would you like to wear?
    
choice
"Outfit 1" {

@NAME changes into Outfit_1

}
"Outfit 2" {

@NAME changes into Outfit_2

}
"Outfit 3" {

@NAME changes into Oufit_3

}

        NARR
    Is this what you would like to wear?
choice (Outfit_Game_1)
<GEMS:5> "Yes, and I want to support the author." {
readerMessage Thank you for your support! with messageTitle From [AUTHOR]
}
<PREMIUM> "Yes, I look great!" {

continue

}
"No, let me choose something else." {

goto OUTFIT_GAME_1

}

GEM WARDROBE
This is what you see in many Episode Originals where they give you a wardrobe and you can then use it during the story. This uses gains. If you are not familiar with gains/if/elif/else, I do not recommend using this template.

Script
INT. GYM BASKETBALL SEA SPARKLE - NIGHT
@NAME enters from left to center

label OUTFIT_GAME_1

&NAME is idle_shiftweight_neutral_loop

        NARR
    What is your aesthetic?
    
choice
<PREMIUM> "Trendy" {

@NAME previews outfit TRENDY_1
&NAME is flirt_wink_atcamera

goto TRENDY

}
<PREMIUM> "Edgy" {

@NAME previews outfit EDGY_1
&NAME is primp_neutral

goto EDGY

}
"Basic" {

@NAME changes into Basic_1
goto BASIC

}

label TRENDY

        NARR
    Stun everyone around you with your trendy style!
    
@NAME previews outfit TRENDY_2
&NAME is admire_happy

        NARR
    This wardrobe unlocks (5) gem outfits to use throughout the story!
    
@NAME previews outfit TRENDY_3
&NAME is primp_neutral

        NARR
    Would you like to buy this wardrobe?
choice (TRENDY)
<GEMS:12> "Yes, I want to be the trendsetter!" {

@NAME changes into TRENDY_1
gain TRENDY

goto STORY_START

}
"No, I want to look at my other options." {

@NAME unpreviews outfit TRENDY_3

goto OUTFIT_GAME_1

}

label EDGY

        NARR
    Have everyone's eyes on you with your edgy style!

choice (EDGY)
<GEMS:12> "Yes, I want to be smoking hot!" {

@NAME changes into EDGY_1
gain EDGY

goto STORY_START

}
"No, I want to look at my other options." {

@NAME unpreviews outfit EDGY_3

goto OUTFIT_GAME_1

}

        NARR
    You won't be able to access the other wardrobes again.
    Are you sure this is what you want to wear?

These templates can all easily be changed back into dressing games without gems simply by removing the < GEMS > section before the choice name.

Using gems in your story is 100% up to you as the author. Just please be aware that many people don’t like gem choices at all, please use at your own discretion.

If anyone has any questions, or requests regarding these, please let me know.

Thanks a lot Lyra! Even though I stopped using it, it would be really helpful for other authors! :100: :raised_hands:t4:

For some reason this did not work for me. I keep getting warnings like “Edgy label is never used” Or "Edgy label doesn’t exist " When I made the outfits?

It should work if it’s a direct copy from what I’ve posted here. Have you renamed any of the ‘goto’ or labels?
