Changing appearance

The player's appearance can change throughout a characters' life through different means.

Over time, the player's hair and beard will grow slowly. Beard growth can be seen after 5 days, and hair growth can be seen after 20 days. Both hair and beard length have a maximum size. Beard options are only available for male characters.

The player can modify their appearance using different items such as scissors, razors, hair dyes, and hair gel. The player can customize the style, length, and color of their hair depending on their current hair style and tools available. Hair can be 'tied up' into different styles without requiring any items.

Hair dye can be used to change the color of the character's hair by right clicking the color dye and clicking dye hair.

Make up can be applied by right-clicking either eyes makeup, foundation makeup, or lipstick and clicking the 'Make Up' option. This gives the user a UI box where they can select different styles of makeup and camouflage to add to the player's face. It can be removed in the same way. Washing the player will also remove makeup.
