Re: Unobtainium?

@Avatar PDM
A late clarification here: In CoH there was a mid-level mission 'Get the P.L.O.T. device' - it really wasn't great content writing.
You can find a brief mention of the mission here: http://cityofheroes.wikia.com/wiki/Ingame_References

Re: Consequences of being defeated

I sort of agree with Inkaris on this, but maybe for different logic. OK, so you've been defeated by a mob and teleported to a hospital or otherwise had a delay of game... so if you defeated 25% of expected for that time allotment, you're already at a 75% loss of xp, to throw debt xp on top of this s...

Re: Unobtainium?

I really am astonished how much emotion a single word unlocks, which most likely will disappear pretty soon after the launch of the game. Can please somebody explain this to me. I mean, ok not anyone likes any idea and some might be a real reason for offense because that is what they might be - off...

Re: roleplay areas

Roleplay is critically important, before COH added SG bases, I made one from a mission. I kept a low level COT large base map until I reached 50, and when I'd team up with the SG leaders we'd go in there for meetings. Actually, several of my toons did this for roleplay purposes, then bases arrived a...

Re: Top 3 things you want included

1. Unbelievable amounts of costumes and character customization at creation 2. Wide array of powers and powersets during gameplay, preferably able to be customized with a differing color pallete 3. Tons of character slots. As a note, I love PVE and PUGs, so I'm taking these for granted that there wi...

Re: Names for Types of Groups

"Campaigns"? I'd imagine a lot of game-players would understand that to mean a series of linked missions pretty well. To be less militaristic, simply calling them a "Series" would suffice. Descriptive and familiar. Or if you want to keep more to the theme of the ship, and super-powered individuals ...

Re: Things I want and don't want, what about you ?

OK, one time I was logged in and witnessed some GM event or whatnot, and I earned a special title. Although I was glad to be there, the special title, for a one time world event... I'm going to say no. Have the events. Offer a monetary reward to the players for being there for world events, or some ...

Re: Character Ratings to be viewed?

Man I loved collecting those Marvel cards as a kid! What if these were not real cards, but like - in game awards like trophies! "You manage to get the fire safe open in the ashes, and you find a Sword Blossom collector card" From there you go to like a "View my Trophies" screen, select "Collectors C...

Re: What PC would be needed

Consultant's 'old' laptop is a 6th gen i7 with a GTX 970 video card built on. Based on other games made in UE4, I would say a baseline unit would be a 2nd gen i5 with 4-6GB RAM and a dedicated DX11 ready video card with 2GB VRAM. ::In a yelling voice from accross the room:: Hey Consultant, can I ha...

Re: Just what I was worried/talking about.

I was huge into a World of Warcraft emulator back in 2007 - I don't think it threatened Blizzard though... people do this kind of stuff and it's OK, but when things go wrong you'll find support next to none.... and even on populated 'servers' of emulated games you'll find a different tone. I just do...

Re: Unobtainium?

I hate to admit that this bothered me so badly that my first communication about Ship of Heroes wasn't on this forum, it was under the 'Contact Us' link. I forget exactly what I authored to the Ship of Heroes team, but man, it was scathing. I remember anger and rage. It's out of my system a little n...

Re: The best things about CoH

My favorite thing was by far the ability to fly, sure the other travel powers were cool too, but flying was amazing. I also loved the community, besides the, unfortunately, dying Champions Online, how many other MMOs have costume contests all the time? Being able to see other peoples creations was ...

Re: What was your travel power of choice, and why?

Flight - I still log into icon or p-chat just to fly around sometimes. I actually scripted a version of fly in LUA for a <game> (you don't want to know what game) but it was never equal to CoH. I loved the stability of City of Heroes flight, it's not like DCU flight, or Champ flight, or any other fl...

Re: Be Honest - COH comic book

I thought the first run of the COH comics was alright, but not great, and the later ones after the second company took over were rotten. I thought it was a really novel ideal, but might have been less of an expense to maybe have a once a year graphic novel release ~ like maybe a 90 pager where the c...
