I tried searching something within the Feature Requests sub-forum, but I didn't find anything, so I apologize if this does actually happen to be a duplicate-like post.

As far as I know, to this point, taiko-mode specific skin elements can only be skinned for actual skin sets, unlike standard skin elements, which can be customized for individual beatmaps.

In other words, to this date, any skin element under the name "taiko-<element>.png" cannot be customized for an individual beatmap. This is somewhat troublesome and disappointing, especially if you're using a song that has the potential to have its own custom taiko skin.

My request is to make the taiko-mode specific skin elements skinnable for individual beatmaps. I mean sure, you can just create a separate skin and force the player to use that specific skin, but that requires an external download which is utmost unnecessary, in my perspective.

The taiko skin elements I wish to be included for customization are all of them, if possible.
So basically anything that falls under the following skin element names

Again, I'm sorry if someone did request this feature before, but I just find it silly how osu!-Standard and Catch The Beat elements can be fully customized (as far as I know), but taiko-mode is forced to use whatever is available is in current skin set applied to the game universally.

Thanks for reading! :)

Edit: I also noticed that custom score-bar skin elements are not applied on taiko-mode too... So yea, It'd be nice to see if the custom score-bar skin elements were to be applied on taiko-mode too.

My troll taiko scrollbar for Grace Kelly can't be seen in game at the moment :(
All lines in my mod posts are just suggestions if and only if you can give me a good reason why you didn't apply it. "No" is not a good reason.

How about no, it already pains my eyes to play some skins on osu!, and now you want to uglify taiko as well? No thank you, please spare my poor eyes, they had enough of playing pink music on a pink background with pink approach circles.

obviously you've had some bad experiences if you think that any change with 'uglify' it.

Full support for this. Though... eh, nevermind, gogogo.

Looking at the custom skin elements for individual beatmaps in other modes, most of them are not ugly at all. The only people who will be making these custom skin elements will most likely be those who know how to design something which isn't absolute crap. And until osz2 is implemented, you can still delete any custom skin elements you don't like in the maps, so fair's fair.

What the hell kind of maps have you been playing?

You sure those files aren't song-skinnable? I was under the impression that they would be. The plan was that they would be, anyway

They aren't, but there's no reason they shouldn't be.

Also the I don't want my beautiful taiko ruined argument kinda doesn't work, since exactly the same issue exists in standard play. Mappers shouldn't be limited in Taiko skinning just because some mappers are awful at skinning. Even bad skins should still be at least reasonably playable, and I'm sure guidelines regarding hitbursts and circles can be enforced if necessary.

I was under the impression that they would be too, but after testing it out on osu!'s latest build, no luck; so this is definitely a missing feature.

Lack of song-skinnable taiko elements makes me a sad panda.

...I'm not sure about this... Are you sure that taiko elements aren't skinable per beatmap? I was under the impression that Osu's use taiko skin option overrides custom elements...
Never mind. Osu just hates Taiko for some reason.

I don't believe in the star priority voting system; not for Feature Requests.

I support this, but i also wanna recall an old feature request where each player could set a specific skin to play in each mode.
That way we can always use a taiko skin without the need to change and uncheck the original skin always :3

Definitely would support that. (But that's a different request from this thread, but still; would support it easily. Image)
