This might sound like a weird poll but it's an issue I've encountered where a compromise must be made.
In short I've been considering a nicer thigh high solution for some time. Where instead of the thigh high sitting above Naomi's skin it would squish against it. This requires the sock be merged with Naomis model,
You can see an example in the above image where the Left would be the new, and the Right would be the current.
...but this brings some issues.
It's a bit hard to go into details why but the short of it is, specifically in sex sim with the "disrobe" menu "removing" the socks/Legs slot item makes Naomis entire body vanish. This has to do with the method of how clothing removal is handled. So in short I would need to remove the "remove socks" button.
And while there may be a solution for this, in the interest of moving forward and into other features like the main game loop, and the already existing issue of "state of undress". Solving this problem is "out of scope".
So I'm left with a compromise.
- Change the way thigh highs work so that they're merged with Naomis model, but remove the ability to remove socks/leg slot items entirely for sex sim.
- Leave things as they are.
Another benefit of the former is it entirely resolves clipping issues. No longer struggling with the legs or toes clipping through the socks. This also works for transparent socks too with a slightly different model, there's still a clipping risk but slightly more manageable.
I also have a somewhat similar question with the werewolf outfit where I move that item to the "body" slot and remove parts of her arms and leg mesh so Naomi's fingers no longer clip through her paws. If I do the changes for thigh highs this would likely be done too.
But also understand the vote on this poll won't be the final say. There's several other possible issues too, like "skin" items. For example the golden flakes effect likely wouldn't work with this new concept. The golden flakes would sit above the socks I think. So there's a possibility you might not be able to have golden flakes and socks on. And this has broader implications.
One final option is "why not both?", which may solve the "skin" item issue but you still can't remove socks cause while it might work for the current socks it won't work for the thigh squish socks... Unless it's considered a "body" item instead of a "legs" item...Then it won't be removeable but you'd get weird stuff like two layers of socks...?
