    Just no. I hope this request never gains traction with the devs. For every player that actually wants this for cosmetic preferences there will be ten others that use it in an offensive way. There are already outfits and armors that are "seductive" enough. The game absolutely does not need bikinis and speedos.

    if you can find me any clothing that is even remotely "seductive"in this game i applaud you.

    There are a few pretty sexy ones.

    Flamekissed armor for example shows A LOT of skin. Human cultural tier 3 light armor is known as THE boob top in the game..

    There are a few more but sadly I don't know the names of the armor sets or outfits.

    I rather choose death.

    We have armor sets that are one step away from a nip slip but a bikini is a no? I would adore it if they added bikinis and speedos in the game, it makes me want to go swimming and have fun on the beach.

    I will be happy if they remove all the back flabs from armor.

    I know that. But if a huge majority of all armors is basically covering every little bit of it there is a certain allure to any bit of skin you can get.

    Laughed my kitten off at this. You know it’s true as well. They’d find a way to add a trenchcoat to bikinis, and I wouldn’t know whether to be upset or downright impressed 😆

    To me sexy means suggestive, someone in a skintight suit with just a low zipper does more then a naked body, in GW2 the only thing i see is the childish kind of sexiness.

    the truth is harsh, my opinions are too.

    But the sound of the words I picked up from the twitter (hate reading twitter is a mess that I can't figure out), sounds like "Southsun Project" and included fishing. So from a guess it sounds like a sort of activity area where you can use this, and do some various new mini games. If so it sounds like a good idea, I would support that.

    Guys, it's coming! Or at least being worked on. Who knows what twists and turns this project might take in the future, so don't get your expectations up until it's on the GW2 frontpage.

    I'm seriously intrigued by this Southsun Project. I always felt that GW2 needed a nice place for some relaxing activities. If Southsun became the holiday-resort the Konsortium marketed it as, I would be really happy.

    OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD WERE GETTING STUFFFFFFF! IT NEEDS TO BE ARMOR SKINS

    Yeah, swimsuits should be available everywhere. The design is great. It should start with an underwear armor vendor at southsun imo.

    Magic glowing armor tattoo outfits, designer swim suits for water map/cultures. please no plain bikinis or Speedos, Fashion is the mirror of our dreams.

  • There's something to be admired by simplicity, though. If you put a whole bunch of streamers and rhinestones on a swimsuit it just looks garish and tacky.

    Anyone remember the years people kept requesting mounts, and kept getting backlash from naysayers declaring it'd break their immersion? Despite the game's artwork including mounts? Despite the fact that we had people riding around on flying broomsticks and magic carpets already?

    Anyone remember the years people kept requesting swimwear, and kept getting backlash from naysayers declaring it'd break their immersion? Despite the game having characters already in them? And characters in Southsun walking around in swimwear that is most assuredly NOT standard undies?

    To be fair, I've not seen a lot of the "but my immersion!" argument on here yet. What I have seen is pretty surprising (and kind of hilarious - the ratings? Seriously?), but just as silly. I could anecdotally say that between all the games I've been on that involve swimsuit options (including Secret World Legends), they haven't been "abused" - though that term seems wildly inappropriate here. But you're welcome to disagree with either of the following statements that I WILL make. They're subjective.

    1.) Swimsuits are fun and provide content.
    2.) Fun and content are what we're here for.

    Here's one that isn't subjective, however:
    There's an interest and market for swimsuits in the community. It's been here for years.

    So bring on the swimsuits, guys. Power to you. And let them be usable wherever, dye-able, and so on. Outfits or armor, either is fine by me. The rule of fun is more important than sparing a prudish authoritarian a case of the vapors.

    Look, it's not an issue of swimsuits being too revealing. It isn't a case of it being inappropriate. It's a case of, "does this make sense for the game?". And speaking in terms of how characters should look, then the answer to that question is no.

    I personally believe in limiting the creative choices of players. I don't want to be rude, but frankly, many of you make truly terrible fashion decisions. This is already a huge problem with inappropriate style items in game. Things like pretty much any given SAB skin. Things like the Starbound griffon. Tacky garbage which hurts the theme and style of the world and only makes it feel more "game-y". Honestly those things are actually worse than swimsuits.

    But any tool that will allow players to make ugly, immersion breaking characters gets a no from me.

    We're way past that argument being valid though. Revealing clothes like what is propose do would be less intrusive than many items already in the game. Ultimately, everything does have a lore explanation, however weak.

    I conceded they were less intrusive. But they are still intrusive. Just because some items are already visually offensive, I don't like to think there's no point protesting the addition of more.

    Honestly items like this cheapen the aesthetic of the game. They're an insult to the artists who made great items and environments for the game's world.

    I'm sure the company would find it insulting to see all the money flowing in. haha

  • Atomos.7593Atomos.7593 Member ✭✭✭✭

    As long as this gives Anet more money to develop the game I wouldn't mind it, since like people have said there is already pretty revealing armour in the game. Cosmetics seem to be the only way Anet makes money besides expansions so I can't really see why these shouldn't be added if people will buy them.

  • The comments about Anet being afraid that we will dye outfits skin-tones. I assume they expected this, i thought the magician's leggings were deliberately designed so that they could be dyed flesh tones. I ran around for several days in a flesh tone starborn outfit and saw a few others as well. Metal bikini while wearing body glitter? Seemed fun! Then the novelty wore off and I moved on.
