Hey, Wes. I think we fall into the backlog category but our question is whether there’s a specific form to use. BTW is “backlog” the agile development term or just ordinary English?
of course it most cost thousands of dollars to implement it and of course it must cost even more dollars to those wanting their jersey in-game…
and here it is haha just a simple tool …
Backlog is software development speak for “the long list of things we want to consider if and how we do them”. Think of it as a todo list but not everything on that list will ever get done.
Sadly the tool to create a jersey is just one part of a larger puzzle of how an asset gets into a game.
the engine/code is just to chaotic then.
I was being snarky. Before I retired, our agency went whole hog into Agile methodologies. Started with scrum but that started to mutate. While I was still there, they couldn’t produce the new online benefits tool to replace the four 1980s mainframe systems.
I was on the logistics end and tried to convince my crew that Kanban was the way to fulfill orders. I got mostly blank looks with the columns-and-stickies version. The online tool was pretty cool but I couldn’t even get looks on it. Oh, well.
speaking on Behalf of owayo - we could open up an option to a Zwift designer. This would allow Zwift users to create jerseys using our tool and also open up a new monetization option where the users can the jerseys they created
O. M. G!!! high pitch squeal that is amazing and what I would expect from any modern game. Why hasn’t Zwift pushed this out yet.
Actually I’m going to stop whining. They finally put some effort into Richmond and it’s awesome, like I knew I could be.
Next step is to stop manually entering (and screwing up) events.
Yeah, scrum can work but it depends on the team, type of work and it’s not the best fit for all teams. I’ve used scrum (and am a certified scrum master), but while many of my colleague’s teams are scrum, I use a Trello-based kanban style approach for my team. Works for us.
I’d absolutely love to create my team’s kit and it definitely feels like a kit editor usable by riders is just the thing to make this feature sustainable. Totally agree that Zwift creating kits for everybody that wants one would be a nightmare amount of work. Here’s hoping for a kit editor, maybe even like Rapha’s custom kit editor: https://www.rapha.cc/no/en/custom/customise/CUS005X-RCC
More selection of jerseys for free would be nice. Let riders stand out a bit
I totally agree. A custom jersey will be so nice to see!
There is any way to make my own custom kit or edit the in-game file so I can make the kit look like what I designed? (I have a team)
Not at this time. If you search the forum you will find other (lengthy) threads on this topic.
You could have a set of “Zwift approved graphics and then submit your graphics to them for approval that would then 'appear” in their design garage once approved. this could also be a Pay to play feature. and make it the cost of a regular jersey ($25-$100). then allow others to “sell” their jersey designs for Points. And allow manufactures (IQ, Craft, Asos, Castelli, etc) to sell their jersey’s… Zwift would make money, we could have the jerseys we want!
I run a social cycling group in Cardiff and we have several hundred members (even though we are not a club in the sense that people pay to join us). We do have our own kit though and lots of. Our riders have taken up Zwifting due to the virus so have asked if we could get ours on there. Personally I’d happily make it free to everyone, as we are a social group after all.
Is there any news on when or if we could get ours into the game?
This was posted by Eric of Zwiftinsider the other day on a Facebook thread, not sure how far off the implementation will be:
If you listen to the latest Zwift cast where Wes explain the process of creating a jersey. It take the developers many hours to creat a jersey.
