    The current state of our store is not very unique when it comes to player cosmetics, specifically hats, accessories, bodysets, etc. To resolve this, I want to propose some ideas I would like for all of us to consider and provide feedback before the release of the annual Halloween or Christmas event, though it won't be a definite guarantee.


    SET GOAL:
    • Remove unused/low quality models
    Here's a list of accessories I would like to get rid of and refund because of several factors, a few being that they're impossible/extremely difficult to adjust (make fit on most models), not utilized or simply garbage out of the 99 available. Players who previously owns these or future items will automatically be refunded of their tokens.

    1. A funny sign
    2. All armor pieces (sorry Donkie)
    3. Horse Figure
    5. Minifig Head
    5. Combine Mask
    6. Top Hat (would possibly be replaced instead)
    7. Rocket
    8. Birdmask
    9. Pumpkin Hat
    10. Doge
    11. Detective's Hat
    12. Carrot Nose
    13. Evil Eye
    14. Elite Helmet
    15. Headcrab Hat
    16. Airboat Gun
    17. Clown Nose
    18. more to consider

    • Add a full range of new cosmetics to encourage players to want to buy them
    Adding new cosmetics from TF will further branch our store collection, @kanari.himawari213 helped with this. Other cosmetic suggestions are also accepted.

    Currently in queue: 81 (not all cosmetics will be added in one release due to certain circumstances)

    • Replace our Store UI, which can come at a much later date
    Redesigning the store interface so that it supports tabs, collapsible categories and a inventory system without having to use a Filter

    • Increasing cosmetic costs to encourage price varieties
    Increasing prices based on the popularity of the model would suffice. Currently, 10 of the unique models costs the same (either 50 or 60 tokens).

    I'd like to use my veto to stop you from removing the doge mask.

    Also I never liked the armor pieces, not sure where you got that idea from

    I hope you're accepting suggestions, if so I want to list a few:

    I didn't fully read your list, but I think these would be pretty cool additions as in accessories:

    And I don't know how the pet system works in flood, but I think having one or two of these would be cool as well:

    We may also consider porting these models to the BR server as well :)

    Its a great idea you should try keep the store UI simple an easy to use and inventory idea is swell.
    I would suggest to make it so that not all of the most expensive models are anime related (If I recall correctly the last time I checked top 13 most expensive models all were anime models) although there is a huge request for them I think you should add a couple of models that aren't related to anime to the top 10 most expansive models in the store. (Dunno like 3-2 at least) after all not everyone likes anime and a bit of diversity could be good I think.
    Can't wait till all the new models will be added. :p

    I’d very much like to see the new store based on the ideas presented, I’m all for a removal for props like armor pieces etc. (Unless this has already been implemented and im a month late? :thinking:)
