So I’ve been trying to think of a way in which to incorporate a color customization option for characters without impacting the profitability of the existing color pallet for players who choose to purchase colors of their liking rather than playing to unlock them. Then it hit me, the unused boosters feature of this game has so much untapped potential.
So here’s my idea…Only once a player has achieved the maximum level with a respective character (lvl 50), the color booster pack will unlock and become purchasable with KI Gold. Once purchased, the color booster allows you to change the color, hue, and saturation of the outfits and accessories for that particular character to your liking. This would be similar in effect to Soul Calibur’s Create a Soul Mode; however it will be limited to the only the ability of changing the color pallet of that respective character.
I think that this is a win/win solution for both IG and community at large. IG will not lose out on any potential profits because this would only be an option for those that have put in the time and effort to bring their character to the maximum level. It even allows for the potential to further profits because let’s face it, who wouldn’t want the ability to customize their favorite character? I think that just about anyone sharing my sentiments would not mind paying for the option to do so. Lastly, it gives players even more motivation to put in hard work and effort to level up their characters to the max. A custom colored character would be a badge of honor and allows for the freedom of creativity without discrediting the work that the artists put
into each character.
Ideally, I would like the ability to zoom and rotate the characters while in this mode. Of course, there should be a feature to save the style created, but I haven’t figured out exactly how to incorporate this into the current costume/color system. Since both the accessories and core outfits are able to be customized, I suppose that simply assigning this custom pallet to color 8 would allow for the pallet swap regardless of the chosen accessories. This same logic could also be applied to the custom accessories by simply having their own tile just like each of the differently colored accessories that we have in game today. A future innovation could incorporate texture as well. Imagine the ability to change Tj Combo’s T-Shirt or Riptor’s stripes. Again, my inspiration for this comes from Soul Calibur’s Create A Soul Content.

@psykkee also played a huge part in my concept. Please check out his Kolor Instinct App. It will allow you an opportunity to express your creativity until when and if IG introduced an aspect of customization to KI.
