Re: Top 3 things you want included

Some of these top things are in the game already: 1. We have done, and will continue to do, everything we can to enable people to play, even if they have older or graphically weaker computers. You may not be playing on Ultra settings (we can only do so much from our end), but we've done a lot in thi...

Re: Donations to Ship of Heroes

This is probably going to sound a bit premature, but yesterday in our marketing meeting the idea was floated that perhaps we'll have some sort of a Halloween event. We're definitely not promising this, but it is a good idea in many ways. So we're looking at it, to see what cost is -- that is, what w...

Re: Do you prefer detailed graphics models, or more flash?

Agreed. I've told this story before, but I made a rad/rad defender who could cast resistance buffs on people. When I made the character I thought it was so cool to make the buffs a persistent light blue flame, which played over the recipients of the buff. At the first Rikti raid for this guy I buffe...

Re: Do you prefer detailed graphics models, or more flash?

We think that hardware and software and Internet connection speed all matter. That was one of the reasons we did the Login Test -- so people could test with their real computers, see the results in terms of FPS -- and share results with other people. We thought that was much more accurate than any "...

Re: Do you prefer detailed graphics models, or more flash?

First off, this is a great poll question. I'll get it organized and queued up shortly. Thank you! With regard to whether this is a false choice...no, it isn't. Every game that I am familiar with has a "budget" for ms or FPS. So much for the characters, so much for the environment, so much for the po...

Re: Body types. Limbs & Heads: Yes, plural.

If it is radically different skin colors and appearances (on the human basic model, two arms, two legs, upright, etc) that you are looking for, no problem. You'll find a universe of options in SoH.

Re: You guys should be very proud

Thank you -- we do too. :) Even though I'm not personally playing on the private servers out of concern over the silence from NC Soft, there is certainly a huge quantity of video on YouTube, and that can be kind of addicting too. So much fun. We think we have a good balance. We're making a new game ...

Re: Donations to Ship of Heroes

We're working as quickly as we can, but we don't want to give up on our internal quality measures. So the answer is, we don't know for sure. However, we have seen that in the last year or so of development, everything seems to take longer than we want it to. If we are unable to launch at the end of ...

Re: Are consoles the way to go for MMO?

Do these consoles allow for a subscription pay model?

I'm thinking they may not.

Re: MORE ON COSTUMING...

Right now we make the costumes one at a time, and therefore specific to a single model -- male, female or big guy.

But we do have costumes that transcend all three models, so it would be possible for a player or group of players to costume their character similarly.

Re: Cutscenes to tell a story

You guys are right -- cutscenes would be awesome, and we have actually made some progress in planning for them, codewise. It is so tempting (as a developer) to promise stuff like cutscenes that will make the game better, but we really are on a budget so cutscenes may need to wait a while. However, e...

Re: The leveling, augment and infusion video on MMORPG.com

I saw that we had a lot of support in the MMORPG comments. Nice! I'm a bit surprised that one of the private servers did not offer the extra service of slow leveling everyone on it. That might have been popular, especially with a subset of players who want to re-live thier first expereince with COH....

Re: Body types. Limbs & Heads: Yes, plural.

The whole idea of non-human characters would be much easier if the desired non-human characters, skeletons and animations could be purchaed in the Unreal Marketplace. That would not solve everything, but it would make the time to complete a lot shorter. Since new stuff comes out all of the time, we ...
