The EMCCV is the product of a nerdy obsession that was a Kisekae doll named SailorX...
The Sailor X Generator (aka "SailorX") was created by Diana Thirring (aka Aeryn Martin or "Aeryn Diana"), inspired by Sailor Orion's Portrait Shoppe (offline), and allows you to create a picture of your otaku senshi (fan created guardian) based on the anime/manga Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi.
The focus is on the creation of new characters, rather than recreating existing ones. This is why SailorXv3 and the EMCCV also have randomization features. The interface is of a neutral grey to avoid influencing the color choices of the user.
SailorX has been around since 2002. The first incarnation was just called SailorX and renamed SailorXbasic, after work on version 2 started. It was built for the already existing Kisekae Set System, short: KiSS. The base (body image) of SailorXbasic was created by Emby Quinn and used with permission. The graphics were very limited in quality due to the limitations of the KiSS Viewer's capabilities, as well as those of the author.
SailorXv2 was an improvement. The graphics were prettier and the color and costume options far greater. In fact, no other Sailor Generator had ever offered as many options. However, the project proved a little too big to finish and life got busy so updates ceased in 2009.
In the meantime Doll Divine hired Drachea Rannak for the artwork of a new flash based Sailor Generator, called the Sailor Senshi Maker, which took the number of options to a new level. Inspired by this, plans for a new incarnation of SailorX started to emerge.
SailorXv2 was officially laid to rest when development of SailorXv3 began in summer 2013. Drawing and programming skills had yet improved, so this time SailorXv3 was a standalone program. Items have smooth edges as images are in PNG format, which offers semi transparency.
As is often the case when you work on something over many years, new ideas kept coming in and new desires needed fulfilling. The closure of the otaku world forums invoked a vision where SailorXv3 would fill that void and take on a new form: one that would cater to the needs of the kisekae content creators, support ideas unrelated to Sailor Moon and especially: one where maintaining and expanding any doll (or module as we call them) would be less of a hassle. The idea for the EMCCV was born and now SailorXv3 is available and being developed as a module for the EMCCV!
New features are being added continuously and development happens with the help and feedback from current users!
