Heyo! So, I’ll try to make my introduction as brief as I can: I’m a flash veteran and grew up using it mainly for dress up games. Love, love, love them! Kids love them too, and always asked me how I made them(sorry Timmy, it would take a few hours to teach, and several hundred dollars to buy the program needed). As creative as I was with it, I’m not a full-on programmer. I basically googled specific tutorials for the actions I wanted and would adjust the coding to my own needs to create super customizable “dolls” in my games. Over the years though, Flash programs have become too expensive to own for the amount of work it takes for me to create my games, and hearing that they would no longer be supporting it stomped out my interest in sticking with it.
Then I found Wick! I absolutely love it! I started playing with it and was delighted to find that I could create a basic dress up with it. (I wasn’t sure where I could upload .html files, so I just have it on my dA stash if anyone wants to see: https://sta.sh/0iab51mhxzp The download button is to the right.) I already have a project cooking in my brain that I can start creating using what I’ve learned to do in Wick so far.
Alright, sorry for the paragraphs, but I tend to be a long-winded person.

The second thing would be something like a color picker component to use in your game that could be customized? Maybe it doesn’t need to be super fancy. I would honestly just be happy with the ability to make a hex code picker that would change the color of a clip with a button press. My flash coding is a bit rusty, but I think I used something along the lines of a bitmap retriever that used an image, and when clicked, it changed the color of another clip to the color of the pixel that was clicked on. I used a “current color” clip as a setup, then whatever color the clip was, when you clicked another button for a specific part of the doll, that doll piece would change to the current color of the “current color” clip. If you’re curious to see what I mean in action, here’s a few of the games I made using the color picker components: (1)http://fav.me/d2ytg7v (2)http://fav.me/d5yqawm (3)http://fav.me/d8o33cl
People like convenience and customization, so you can kind of see how I evolved the picker and improved it by figuring out how to combine different types of pickers that all worked together. You can pick from a palette of rainbows, a set amount of colors, or simply use hex codes.
And then there’s just one thing about the Path Cursor. I see that you can add a new point(yay!) but I can’t figure out a way to delete a point if it’s available. Double-clicking a point causes the adjustment arms(I have no idea what these are called, sorry!) to disappear, but I’d rather be able to delete the point entirely.
