I'm doing a set of fantasy/medieval cash registers/cashiers on Woobsha bases. Because they only come with one NPC attached, I'm doing a clone for each skin tone, 'cause I like variety.

My question is: they all have the same hairstyle and clothing. Should I give them each a different colored outfit, or leave them all the same except for skintone? They look slightly clonelike to me, but maybe that's not a bad thing....

I'd say at least do variations on the theme (like the MM gypsy outfit - green for light, but red for medium and blue for dark). That way they're similar enough to feel like they fit together, but different enough that they don't look like an 80s sci-fi movie.

I'd be happy to hack cash register for you so it picks one of the three at random instead needing 3 registers. It wont be EZ clone anymore, of course. (Well, not "of course". I do have an idea for an EZ clone version but I have not actually tried it out yet so no files are ready to be used as a base)

Since you do like variety I'd vote for varying the outfits a bit (I am assuming they are not meant to be A Uniform)

Only if you feel like it! hug I've got them all done, it's just a question of changing the bitmaps, which I think I will indeed do.

I'm actually not sure how to send the NPCs independent of the registers. o.o Do I need to re-clone them?
