The Change Dresser Mod adds a dresser and wall mirror that can be used to change a pawn’s apparel color, hair style and color, skin color, body type, head type, gender and age in-game!
The dresser can also store apparel and be used as a second outfit storage for each of your pawns. For example, you can set a “on drafted clothes” and your pawn will automatically wear that when drafted.
Both the dresser and the mirror can be found under the Furniture menu. A dresser costs 40 wood/stone/metal and 40 steel, and a mirror costs 20 wood/stone/metal and 20 steel.
Change Dresser Mod features
- New furniture: Change Dresser, Change Mirror and Mending Attachment. If a pawn is told to interact with these – via right click – the pawn can change his Hair Style, Hair Color or Body Type. Additional interactions are available with the Change Dresser: Change Apparel Color and Store Apparel.
- Selecting the Change Dresser will give some additional functionality:
- Manage Apparel – View what’s stored in the selected dresser and drop selected apparel on the ground.
- Assign Outfits – Assign outfits to pawns for both when they are not drafted and when they are drafted. When a pawn has outfits assigned to them, they will be able to instantly switch between outfits when selected – button will appear at the bottom that can be selected by the user.
- Empty – Place all the stored apparel on the ground around the dresser.
- Include Apparel In Trade – Designates whether to include the apparel stored in the dresser in trade deals.
Example for Assigned Outfits
The pawn Mina has multiple outfits: Everything, Worker, Light Armor Range and Heavy Armor Melee. Everything and Worker are civilian outfits (non-combat) and Light Armor Range and Heavy Armor Melee are combat outfits.
When Mina is not drafted, she can change between Everything and Worker. When Mina is drafted, she will change to the last combat outfit she was wearing – we’ll say Light Armor Range in this case. She can then switch to Heavy Armor Melee and back to Light Armor Range as needed.
When Mina is done in combat or is incapacitated/killed she will switch back to the last civilian outfit she was wearing.
Note: The apparel worn prior to an outfit change will be removed from the pawn prior to the change – this allows apparel that was being worn to be put back on if applicable. There must be a change dresser available for the previously-worn apparel to go to otherwise it will be dropped on the ground around the outfit-changing pawn. Consider having an extra change dresser which allows all apparel with a Low Priority setting if the other Change Dressers have restrictive filters.
Stored apparel will be available for caravans. Until the pawns in the caravan either exit the map or are told to cancel the caravan, the apparel will remain scattered around the dresser. If something goes wrong and the items are not collected, let me know and click the “Collect” button on the change dresser.
As of now if the Cancel button is used from the Form Caravan window, the apparel will not be collected. This will likely remain the case for the time being due to limitations in modding tools. This can be fixed by either using the Collect button or forming another caravan and either allow it to leave the map or cancel the caravan
Will detect if apparel within attached Change Dressers needs to be mended. Each Mending Attachment can only mend one apparel at a time. More than one Mending Attachment can be attached to one or more Change Dressers (many-to-many relationship)
All Outfit Assignment/Apparel actions are available to Alien Races. Body and Hair attributes can be modified depending on the alien race. Not all alien races can have hair, different head types, etc.
Species changing is not available (can’t change from a human to an alien). This is a code limitation and not a design decision on the author’s part.
Can be assigned to a specific pawn. Example: Pawn ‘Yuuka’ has an awesome cowboy hat that she wants to wear with power armor. She doesn’t care about which power armor, just that she wants to wear the cowboy hat in battle.
Yuuka can create a Custom Outfit with the legendary cowboy hat included and the ‘Soldier’ outfit as the base. When she is drafted she will put on the cowboy hat first then all other apparel like normally (from the previous Change Dresser). Note: It is not required to have a base outfit selected. Leaving it as [None] will make it so only the selected apparel will be used.
The Mending Attachment will first repair apparel that is used for Custom Outfits before moving onto other apparel.
The Change Dresser Mod is available in English, French, Russian, German, Japanese and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).
Change Dresser Mod
The Change Dresser Mod gives you the chance to modify those ugly looking pawns or recolor their apparel. Who knows, maybe you want all your colonists to wear the corporative colors. But the best feature of this mod is being able to switch an outfit completely whenever you draft your colonists, no more going one by one to put them battle clothes on.
