Player-owned Clothing Store Businesses. Very similar to the LTD 24/7 business script wise.
Not sure if this has been suggested or considered before, this might even be in development already who knows. I thought I'd give a pretty solid rundown of how it could work anyway.
So, player-owned Clothing Store Businesses, that script-wise, would work very similar to the system that LTD 24/7 shops have. For example, like businesses already available in the game, the player can apply to request/lease one through the UCP or even in-character business/negotiations with owners(?). The player would have to set the coordinates of a store that isn't in use by the server of course.
Once the player's application has been accepted, they can then officially start their business ICly, and with map icons, here's how it could look (I use an IC company called 'Sevencz' as an example throughout this post).
So how would the purchasing system work? Well firstly, like all scripted businesses, the player would press 'Y' to bring up the menu and be greeted with the different clothing types (t-shirts, jackets, pants, shoes etc.) that the business has available. While flicking through the different options, the script could change the player's visual appearance (set by the business) matching the highlighted option as shown below. The player would then be able to purchase the item of clothing and then asked to overwrite an outfit slot, similar to the server ran clothing stores. Once purchased, the item would be placed in their inventory through a 'Clothing' option... Here's how some of this could look:
Opening the menu (Y)
Changing the player's appearance
Player inventory slot
Commands to add:
/bjoin (to be employed at the business like the 24/7 stores)
/shop (instead of pressing Y to bring up menu)
Items to add:
Clothing items - visual and scripted (t-shirts, pants, shoes, accessories etc.)
How would your suggestion improve the server?
Would guarantee to bring more RP scenarios and jobs to the server, therefore creating more committed players. This addition would also allow players to flaunt merchandise created by other players, as well as the addition of luxurious high-street clothing chains so that rich characters can flex expensive clothing.
I also created some RP scenarios that could play out if this system was added:
Again, not sure if this has been suggested or considered before but I thought I'd give a detailed rundown of how it could work anyway. There might even be a massive flaw in my idea that couldn't possibly work in the server. Regardless, I thought I'd share this idea with you all. Think this would be a very neat addition to the server, and I'm sure many others would agree. Thanks ❤️
