So the new Designer Dreams AC scratch mentions being created by ARKS operatives:
This next AC Scratch collection, Designer Dreams, is for all those Arks who dream of some-day having an outfit or layering piece of their own design in the collection, as the designers with looks featured in this lineup were once just like them. That’s right, these budding phashion moguls were once fellow ARKS Operatives, so show your support by strutting your stuff in these creative and eye-catching pieces!
Specifically, these operatives are players on the JP server. There, from 2014 onwards, every year sometime between April and July there is a contest called Winners Design which allows players to submit designs. The winning entries have featured in their own AC scratch set; from 2015 onwards there have been enough winners for two sets called Side A and Side B, and this year they added a third set called Side C.
Designer Dreams is not a carbon copy of any one of these sets, however: Instead, it is a selection of various outfits from different sets spread across most of the years. For those who take an interest in this, here's a list of all the outfits and outerwear, and the JP set they came from with links to bumped:
|Winners Design set||Item|
|Winners Design 2 Side B||Charteria Courent|
|Winners Design 3 Side A||Rappy Suit: Knight and Beltpunk M and F|
|Winners Design 4 Side A||ARKS Sadeenian Suit and Rakshasa Binding|
|Winners Design 4 Side B||Progressive Raiment M and F|
|Winners Design 5 Side A||Frigid Floral M and F|
|Winners Design 5 Side B||Pop La Sorcery M and F and Frilly Goggle Camo|
|Winners Design 6 Side A||Maidenly Ogre|
I think the CAST parts might be an exception; from what I can find, the only CAST parts to ever appear in Winners Design is the Brave Spirits set from 4 Side B and that's not what we've got. They probably threw in some non-Winners Design CAST parts to ward off further complaint.
The accessories are also from Winners Design. I haven't found them all but they seem to be spread about between 3 and 6:
|Winners Design set||Item|
|Winners Design 3 Side A||Photon Scarfs|
|Winners Design 4 Side A||Fantastical Waist Capes|
|Winners Design 4 Side B||Loose Socks, Hexashields, * Jumbo Twinder and * Cookie Bag|
|Winners Design 5 Side A||Gradient Wings, Snake Tongues, * Blitz Horizon, * Blue Crystal Sword and * Arkuma Starcleaner|
|Winners Design 5 Side B||Pop La Hood, Pop La Scarf, Pop La Ribbon, Simple Face Mask and Redome Unit|
And for further detail, this is not the first time we have had Winners Design content. That I am aware of:
The Xbox One only (and mistakenly also called North America only) Closed Beta Test provided the Photon Halo accessory set from Winners Design 2 Side B. To date these are the only Closed Beta rewards not to be revived; the others have both been revived twice and both now have permanent acquisition methods too.
