Re: Music and FX question

I personally love the sound fx and musical score. It's the greatest part of immersion for me. I regularly listen to orchestral arrangements from games in the car. Fear Not This Night from GW2 and CoH: Freedom Menu Theme are two of my favorite tracks on the playlist due to the instant flood of nostal...

Re: How about a fishing temp power?

This is a really neat idea for a side feature. I wouldn't personally sacrifice anything else to have it, but if it made its way into the game I think it'd be great for RPers and other casual social players. Also, I don't personally think it would hurt if occasionally an inspiration popped up on the ...

Re: Inspirations?

FWIW, I like Sparks instead of Inspirations, and Augments instead of Enhancements. These are great! I'd add "Boons", "Surges", "Catalysts", and "Amplifications (Amps?)" to the list. Catalyst in a more poetic sense, for describing the various items that may improve a characters abilities. I suppose ...

Re: Sci-Fi Environment Under Apotheosis City

Space in space is not at a premium. Materials are not actually at a premium. Something like this ship would be HUGE . The spaces could be cavernous with no problem whatsoever. I strongly disagree with this. Besides, the lore has already established that resources are scarce requiring ship and plane...

Re: Trade, materials, crafting, and story

Wow, did I say craftable costume pieces? What was I thinking? We think the costume options need to be open for just about everyone. It has been suggested to us that we could have a cash shop with special costume options. I always wonder how that will look to people in a game where costumes are so i...

Re: Sci-Fi Environment Under Apotheosis City

I think I understand the observations about space/ volume in the ship being at a premium. Think of a submarine -- then the observation is certainly quite true. But the Justice is a generation ship. It was produced to have a 50,000 year (or more) life. We've never had a nation on earth with anything...

Re: Trade, materials, crafting, and story

This is not a crafter's game. I know how one plays, I played in one for a long while, and ran one, and coded for it. It can work, if the audience is right for it. But I greatly doubt that the audience for a superhero game is really the right audience that will make enough use of a complex resource ...

Re: Donations to Ship of Heroes

Question about the donations - is this a one time donation or will additional donations we make be added up to come up with the donor level? I am more than willing to make additional donations on a monthly basis. Waiting for answer to this question and to the earlier one about whether it will be po...

Re: Sci-Fi Environment Under Apotheosis City

These are the first completely interior spaces we've shown in Ship of Heroes. So issues like lighting, general size and feel, color palette, and a host of issues relating to the operation of the game in a true client/ server situation were tested here. This video was created in UE 4.13, so some thi...

Re: Character Creator question

I feel like these reference models may be useful for anyone looking to do rough sketches. These are not my art, I just googled for them. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e0/a0/0b/e0a00b5655a1b2ca9ecc7944e1ad13d7.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/e6/94/84/e69484d28c30ce0780866f9f...

Re: Accuracy, Resistance and Limits

While I'm in general agreement that "artificial" stat boosts are...well...artificial, accuracy is a weird thing psychologically (and mathematically). Going from 50% to 75% accuracy halves the opponent's chance to dodge, but doesn't double your chance to hit. And people really hate missing - it feel...

Re: Buffing Poll (Dec 11) is a Dangerous Poll

Nerfing is dangerous that kind of nonsense was the only time I ever moved to quit COH. Maybe if we started seeing giant mushroom clouds on the horizon destroying Bosses and minions with one hit. Then ok adjust it a bit. ;) I mean we don't to turn into "One-Punch Man". It's an inherent part of runni...

Re: Top 3 things you want included

I find the worst part of unlimited levels is meaningful progression. Agreed. Kill things to become stronger so you can kill differently coloured things to become stronger so you can kill... Adding levels doesn't really add anything to the game that replaying an alt doesn't. I liked the incarnate pr...

Re: XP @ level difference question

With a level cap of 20-25 to start, there is really no reason to power past everything. I personally think that something like the baby sewer trial is good as the game matures, but at first I would think that doing the content would be a better way to enjoy the game, especially with most endgame co...
