I’m always sick and tired of this sort of argument.
“Oh, so you want to see nude characters in your video game?”
sticks nose in the air
“Clearly you must be immature and touching yourself.”
It is the most BS form of argument one can make. It has nothing at all to do with maturity just because you think female slaves should be topless.
This is an IMMERSION issue. These are slaves. They have no rights. The only privileges they get are the ones they earn from their Master, the one who owns them.
Clothing is a form of privilege, in modern society it would be a form of humiliation to be put on display without a covering. In the lore of Conan, it would probably be less so.
Regardless of that, nudity is not always a ■■■ thing, and should not be treated as such.
I think everyone can agree, most of the ones here have the option of ■■■■, if it comes to that. Nudity is a part of life in Conan, much more so than it is in the real world.
The option to have nude slaves should be available as equally as clothed ones.
Ideally, the fix I think would work best is a slider in the options. Nude Craftsman, under the Thralls area.
If this is turned off, the craft station thralls have a default outfit they wear.
If this is turned halfway on, and the nude option is also enabled, the default outfit they wear is a topless one.
If this is turned fully on, then the craftsman has no clothes at all.
It isn’t as perfect a solution as being able to dress them any way you like, but it seems MUCH easier than the effort to put that into effect.
My response to this thread is primarily because I’m against censorship. This is an adult game, rated M and meant for people over the age of 18. The players are supposed to be adults and capable of seeing a boob without having giggling childish fits.
Censorship cheapens that, and is wrong in this instance, because children aren’t supposed to have access to this game. On the off chance we have players with kids who may witness it, that is what the Nude option is for in the first place. As a fast way to conceal things young eyes shouldn’t see.
But I have always felt very offended when people label a stand against censorship as immaturity or some sort of perversion, when it is nothing of the sort.
