Would make an amazing left-hip-only appearance kit option! If you don't know what a gorytos is, they were a combined bow holster/quiver used extensively in the ancient world. Some also had a leather cover to keep the bow & arrows out of inclement weather.

Images for inspiration:

With cover, on horseback.

Mongolian style (cloak option, perhaps?)

Posting from my phone so ther may be auto correct typos.

I do like the idea of having this on a belt slot since we are already soon to implement a quiver as a cloak option. Of course with more added design and layout to make archers look like they are actually archers.

The design itself seems simple enough to replicate. Would essentially be making that quiver and adding a bow model which we already have into it. I’ll see what others from the media team have to say about this idea before continuing. :)

Belt appearance options are incredibly finicky... you have to first use old appearance changer to actually get an armour with a 'working' belt appearance on it (cuz so many have pseudo-belts that cannot be edited), and then figure out how to mod the variety of appearances with the new changer. It's an incredibly laborious process!

I was hoping it could be for left hip appearance (same 'slot' scabbards and swords and dangling crossbows currently occupy as well!) so its easier to apply.

But I appreciate the interest! Thanks!

Noted the request. The item will be placed as a left and right appearance items. Perhaps later down the road when belts within the belt changer are more stable, we can reintroduce the created item to belts.
