I want to allow character customization for my flash game, but how can I allow for a lot of possibilities for a walking character? For example 40 different hair styles. Do I need to create 40 different objects and set their coordinates to a skeleton or something? Or would I create one hair object and load different animation frames based on the character choice?
I'm just not sure how I can do this without it being a ton of work and having a ton of objects.
