Now that KCP 2017 is coming to a close, I'd like to give some feedback to the KCP app itself. But first, let me put this here from another thread.

KCP Suggestions!

- A randomizer option to randomly pick a style (random skin colour, random eyes, random clothing, etc.). This can help people who don't have any ideas, and people can have a developed base to work off of.

- Just like you can't share names with other KCP creators, they should block all the names of the existing customers along with names with numbers, so there isn't a Kayla, Matt, Allan, "ujhsdf46ds4fdsfj" and so on. There are so many good looking customers, but they have names that either match actual customers or have horrible randomized names.

- A colour wheel, so you can choose your colours down to the exact hex/RGB code that you want it to be. There can always be defaults on the side, along with slots to save your own colours to colour coordinate, therefore helping you to have more options.

- An in-game spotlight where voting would usually be before the voting starts, constantly changing every time you click on it. It helps you see what others created, along with knowing if one of your WIP-customers look like other people's entries, helping you create something unique and special.

- Some info about your customer that you can pick for yourself. For example, favourite holiday with a selectable menu of all the holidays from Cupcakeria to Sushiria, and everything in between. Potentially a favourite colour, favourite food, city that he/she lives in, etc. There can also be a short section below, like others suggested for a biography of the character. It helps breath life in to the character and helps with creating Flipdecks, and picking orders afterwards if the owner is unable to get into contact with Matt/Tony.

- Bring back the Kingsley's Class photo at the end of the tournament from KCP2013! It was really cool to see everyone standing side by side and really getting to compare all 32 of the entrants. Hopefully it comes back this year, it'd be awesome if it did.

That's pretty much it, the things I suggested were less clothing and customizable options, and more suggestions to improve the KCP game/system itself and ideas to allow people to have their own one in a kind characters.

And here are my own suggestions:

- A skip button for the voting. Sometimes the 3 characters shown don't look good at all, or maybe people just don't feel like giving votes for that particular group. As it is now, you have to go back to the main menu and enter the voting part again. A skip button would be most convenient. If I remember correctly, this feature was in KCP 2016, and I'd like to see it again.

- Vote counter. The current KCP only shows you your average rank, not vote count. I'd like to see how many people voted on my characters along with the average rank.

- A better UI for the eye look, eye type, and mouth picker. Make it look like the hair picker. It's neat, and you can see what you want to choose instead of scrolling through until you loop around.

- Separate color picker for secondary hair option. Sometimes people just want to go crazy.

- A standalone app for the character builder feature. Dressing up games have their own audience, and I think a standalone character builder app could work. It also allows people to practice making their characters without having to play the gamerias.

* I fear the randomised entries can sometimes be so bloopy they would be so loved by troll entry creators.
* This and not allow the name not-capitalization.
* I think that would work against some parts of colouring a character similar and would also create messy FCs you can already see on Deviantart.
* Achieving total uniqueness can be hard sometimes, don't you think?
* YES! And to make yourself a Style B. Either from the wardrobe or how do you want to dress up. (Preferably to choose nothing from already existing fictional characters and troll looks.)
* Also yes! It could be like a school picture or something.
* Also also yes! It's tiring to go back to start everytime.
* Maybe by bringing the vote count back people would feel the bias coming towards their entries? Sorry, just saying.
* It could work but I don't think they'll have enough space for it.
* See above. + Add piercings! How can Wylan B have one when no one can too?
* Can be nice I guess

by that order of the way the first post posted all the innovations that are being suggested

yeah... another year without my FC competing in KCP

In my opinion, the voting system is fine the way it is. They tried adding numbers in the year before last and that wasn't really successful. Rather, it gave people high hopes to find out later that it wasn't at all what they expected.

I definitely agree that there should be a skip button. Also, the thing about changing the height of your customer without making them look like giraffes or people with no necks should happen too lol.

But for now those who are cookie pros can save their toot from getting deleted.
