Technology Level Edit

For the first story arc players will be rebuilding the technologies of the old world and getting back up to what would today be considered modern technology. In future story arcs Fallen Earth get into more fanciful things. So armor in the initial story arc consists of things like leather jackets, scrap metal plating, reinforced synthetic clothes, nomex, sandworm hide armor, motorcycle helmets, kevlar, ballistic plates, etc. [1]

Faction Specific Items Edit

Each faction has numerous pieces of clothing and armor that are specific to their faction, from Lightbearer robes to CHOTA bone armor to Enforcer ballistic plate. Some of these outfits will simply function as armor, such as the aforementioned Enforcer ballistic plate, while others may have different functions. Each Faction has pieces for a variety slots, with each Faction having at least its own chest, foot, glove, belt, and head pieces. Most of these slots have 3-5 different pieces for each Faction, denoting different ranks or membership in subfactions. Faction-specific clothing and armor can only be worn by members of the appropriate faction, so if you're a Traveler trying to disguise yourself as a Vista, best not wear your Traveler-specific gear into a Vista town. Players can learn to make Faction-specific clothing and armor if they have the appropriate Armorcraft skill and a really high Faction rating. [2]

More Than One Way to Wear a Hat Edit

There's more than one way to wear a hat. Not every piece of clothing is modifiable, but many pieces are. For example, there’s not a lot you can do to change the way you wear a t-shirt or a bullet proof vest, but many of the jackets, pants, baseball caps, etc have modifiable elements. Generally these clothes have various options that can be selected through the gear window or by clicking on the appropriate piece of clothing on your avatar. [3]

Clothing Slots Edit

There will be 22 clothing slots (positions where clothing can be worn):

  1. Shirt
  2. Pants
  3. Torso
  4. Legs
  5. Head
  6. Eyes
  7. Ears
  8. Mouth
  9. Left Glove
  10. Right Glove
  11. Belt
  12. Shoes
  13. Left Shoulder
  14. Right Shoulder
  15. Left Upper Arm
  16. Right Upper Arm
  17. Left Lower Arm
  18. Right Lower Arm
  19. Left Upper Leg
  20. Right Upper Leg
  21. Left Lower Leg
  22. Right Lower leg

Some pieces of clothing will take up multiple slots. For example, if you find a pair of football pads it will take up both shoulders, while a gas mask will take up eyes, mouth, and probably head.

Eyewear Edit

Aside from glasses and eye patches, there will be all sorts of items that can be worn as eyewear / headgear: 3-D glasses, visors, gas masks, safety goggles and monocles. Currently, bandanas or other cloths cannot be worn over the eyes.[4]

Underwear Edit

It was possible to customize underwear earlier in development, however this feature was removed as it never seemed interesting enough.[5]
