Re: re-spec poll

For testing power sets i have a different idea: Make a special zone, lets call it testing arena, where everybody can make max level characters from scratch that only work in that zone. The zone can have "real" mobs or just test dummies, whatever is easier to develop. That arena could be explained as...

Re: AE Theory

What i am worrying about is the potential for user created missions to generate a lot more XP than standard missions, making them the easiest way of grinding XP. A lot of COH missions were like that, leading to an empty world. What i would do to prevent this: Make an arena where people can create mi...

Re: Regarding for special achievements/perks, what kind of specials would people be interested in being able to attain?

It seems important to me that those perks are not perceived as a must have, so they should not impact game play very much or at all. So i am all for visual things, costumes, fireworks power or something like that. It can be cool but it really should not be vital.

Re: P2P or F2P?

You could allow free to play for all for a limited time on a dedicated server that is used only for that purpose. Nobody would farm on such a server as it is pointless.

Re: July 2018 Milestones

I am curious if the game can run (with low settings of course) on intel integrated graphics.

Re: July 2018 Milestones

2. Recording the FPS from a bunch of real people's computers -- devs tend to have high-end rigs. I don't think that you will get good input on that issue from alpha testers. Alpha testers are the most committed people who are able to donate a good amount of money, so they will not be poor. Alpha te...

Re: Levels of the Ship

Please consider messing with gravity on some levels. Gravity is artificial anyways on the ship, so it should be kinda easy to change on the ship. And it presents so many possibilities. Lower gravity, higher gravity, no gravity...

Re: New Poll Questions

Global enhancements: I have no idea if you want those or if you already have some ideas about them. You could make a poll about what the people might want. Options are what i can come up with, you probably have other ideas already... 1) No global enhancements. Keep it local. 2) Keep em relatively we...

Re: New Poll Questions

I will suggest a poll on the nature of possible respecs. What kind of respecs do you want to be in the game? 1) Just respec inside your chosen power sets (CoH classic option) 2) Possibility to change secondary power set, don't change archetype 3) Possibility to change primary power set, don't change...

Re: rebirthing characters

You may even consider a progeny system like pantheon will have, so that you get rewarded for retiring max level characters with small perks to a new character. totally against this. mostly because I'm a one character guy. Doesn't take anything away from you. And i am really talking *small* perks. I...

Re: rebirthing characters

I don't like the idea of being able to keep your level while changing archetype or even subtype for the following reasons: 1) Such a character won't have "earned" their powers. This leads to players playing at a high level while being unfamiliar with their powers. High level teams will suffer, the a...

Re: Creating pets

Pet ideas that are efficient from a dev time point of view, most efficient first: 1) Anything human (pirates, ninjas, soldiers, gangsters...) 2) Zombies, mummies, vampires, ghosts... can use a lot of human assets, but some minor animation work is needed. 3) Robots, drones, glowing orbs...: New model...

Re: so many negative comments on Youtube

Let's not forget that SoH will be a niche game. You can not expect only positive comments for something like that from people who won't neccessarily share our niche.

Niche MMORPGs are the future. Catch all MMORPGs like WoW will slowly die out i think.

Altered carbon => cloning

I recently watched the "altered carbon" show on netflix. Earlier i already read the commonwealth novels of Peter F. Hamilton. In both of these fictions, the characters have a device in or near their head that records all their thoughts so that they can be relived whenever they die. Since SoH is set ...

Re: Friendly Fire?

You would have to build your character around the idea of friendly fire. You would need single target powers and cone powers, blasts would be very situational. So if this would be an option i would like to have it as a special server ruleset, since you would need different powers to be good with tha...
