No pre set outfits
This might get too tricky to get it working right but I’m gonna write it down anyway.
Don’t give the people pre-made clothing sets but just separate items.
Let’s say a person has 2 jeans and 4 tops, let the AI figure out what to wear that day, pick a random bottom item and random top item. Maybe give the items tags to let the AI know which items look good together, or give a wardrobe customization window where a player can check boxes to let the AI know what’s ‘allowed’ to combine.
Example: first jeans can only be combined with shirt 2 and 4, second jeans can be worn with shirt 2 and 3. Shirt 1 will never be worn because its never checked in outfit combos, the player thinks it doesn’t look good with jeans 1 or 2 and decides to send the Paralives character out to the store to buy a suitable skirt instead (just like real life).
Or tag each item with a season, could be implemented together or instead of the original idea.
Example: you have a short jeans, you can uncheck the box for “winter” and “autumn” to avoid weird random outfits which are unrealistic for cold temperatures..
Added a quick sketch for clarification.
