A change will be turned on this Wednesday (11/6/2019) which will make it so that an unidentified, moderated, or otherwise bad shirt or pants asset id specified in a HumanoidDescription will result in the avatar getting a fallback default shirt and/or pants applied. This is when using the HumanoidDescription with Player:LoadCharacterWithHumanoidDescription() or Humanoid:ApplyDescription().
I was wondering when this would be added and I was surprised it wasn’t already a thing; though I suppose it does raise a question of whether or not this is as easily bypassable (content deleted clothing/pending clothing) as it is by default.
Will this be implemented in Lua, or directly into the aforementioned functions? Furthermore, are games required to apply these fallback clothes at all times (even if it would make sense to not have them, such as if the character is wearing a morph of some sort)
This is a great idea, it blocks inappropriate outfits via moderated assets.
But on the other hand, I generally believe that only “human” skin tones should have this implemented. As I have seen many people only use white, black, gray, red and other body colors to make outfits. Are other skin tones even considered inappropriate? Or are you the people who do want to dress in one skin tone need to purchase a solid colored shirt
Mind you that this market already exists, but by forcing default clothing onto Robloxians, you basically push those who want to customize their character to having to buy “transparent” shirts or solid colored shirts.
I think this update is being taken out of context.
This update does not say that it will apply clothing to characters who are not wearing any,
It is saying that characters that are wearing clothing that has been content deleted, that it will replace it with a default clothing item. Why? because loading deleted clothing will have the clothing just not appear, often deceiving people. May also be used to exploit nakedness? I don’t know.
It should not affect classic or ‘undressed’ characters at all.
I think its nice you did something regarding the “weird naked” skin coloring, but kind of forces us to buy 1-colored pants for torso and legs so that we can use the classic looks. I get that some people are dressing somewhat inappropiate but, its all just blocks, no shapes of any kind. Please, if there is any way you guys could do this without breaking the old avatar looks, that would be great. If not, this is better than nothing I guess…
