Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Let me give another update on the CCT Beta. Right now we are waiting on one thing to be fixed by Unreal, which is their interaction with TrueSKY, which is broken at the moment. We've diagnosed it and it all rests with Unreal at the moment as far as we can tell. So there could be a couple of weeks st...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

Unfortunately, two parties saying they are working something out is not as impactful as three parties (including NC Soft) saying the same. In my view, we still do not know what is really going on, or what is going to happen in the future with the COH IP.

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

I don't know anything about NC Soft, but GladDog's thought process seems plausible to me. But if we assume that he is right and the C & D letters will fly beginning in January of 2020, then NC Soft ought to be letting people know their plan now, to minimize the negative marketing impact of what is s...

How Much Time...per Character

Interesting, it seems that the general consensus is that we we spend 1-3 hours per main character, and also about the same for each alt. I had guessed that the alts would receive less attention. Although, I don't know why I expected that. It's not what I actually do in other games. Also, now that I ...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Actually, we have maybe a dozen hero costumes for each model. but if you think about it, it is relatively easy to add more costumes now that we have a system and templates and examples. But relatively hard to add morphs because they need to affect all of the player files, not just the particular one...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Here are some answers to the questions: 1. On whether there is a decent black color for costume parts (that is what I understood the question to be), I think the answer is a definite yes. In order to confirm this, we will make one of our next videos with the Sorceress (a favorite of our lead coder) ...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Progress on the CCT continues. We've been experimenting with how to solve the dilemma we've created...we're giving players so many choices, so many options, that no other MMO character creator we're aware of can match us. But this also means that an individual player could literally spend weeks tryi...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

During the upcoming character creator beta, we're going to give participants an option to run around the city and explore. Some buildings will be open, including one building in the Warehouse District, and of course Ivar & Sons Auction House. But also we'll allow people to jump into the hospital lob...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Creature features will not be too much in this CCT Beta. But behind the scenes we have made a bunch of features that should allow us to add them later without too much difficulty.

We're sticking with our plan to get something really good launched, and expand from there.

Re: The ONLY thing I care about.

Here's the current update (monday morning, eastern US time). We just finished some testing on the FPS for the CCT Beta map of Apotheosis City, and it looks pretty good. As always, we have a few spots with lower FPS that we're looking at. And we added emissive windows to the City Hall and to a large ...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Just to give a minor update, one thing that is happening is this: We reviewed the hair models for the female characters and we spotted a couple of places where, from certain angles, you can see through to the scalp. So we were fixing that yesterday, and have a couple more hair fixes for today. Anoth...

Re: The ONLY thing I care about.

SweetSugar, I'd like to offer a few thoughts about the launch date. I do not know if this will help you or not. First, sometimes we get people (not you) asking why we don't post the launch date, with the apparent belief that we know the launch date with absolute certainty, but we're just withholding...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Right now we are planning to continue with our previous process, and not require NDAs. The Beta is for donors, so everyone involved has helped us. We generally do not object to people advertsing our Alphas and Betas. IF something goes terribly wrong (and it might), we don't hide it, we admit it and ...

Re: Update on the CCT Beta

We actually have kind of an issue with the CCT. A player can make so many different kinds of characters with different faces, differenet sizes and costumes, that it becomes an issue to explain the range of the possible for us. We made an internal video just showing the preset faces for the female mo...
