Public modded hairstyles
« on: July 16, 2007, 01:14:37 pm »
Inspired by Justin's "afro" topic, I came up with this.

Hairstyles that you have modded should be downloaded to the servers you join. A hairstyle is like a 15x15 MAX picture, it would take a fraction of a second to download. It would eliminate the restriction on hairstyles, plus you can be more unique. Eh?

These sort of things have been suggested a lot, and they're not really necessary. They may make your soldier "prettier," but it's really not worth MM's time when it is easily moddable. And what happens to the people who don't want some crazy afro every time they join a server?

sorry, f11

well - this is going too far now imo,
I'd say the afro is the limit.  Next thing you know is people are gonna want to be able to spray custom logos like in CS - it ain't gonna happen in soldat.

Can't think of anything original to put here...

lol.

People won't magically join servers with afros. You join a server with the hair you choose. Possibly, there could be a server option to disable custom hairdos.

I only suggested it because I think it would not be terribly hard to do, and not use hardly any extra resources or time. Think about it, the hair is a pretty small graphic.

Yeah!  Like braces for your teeth, perhaps also some grills up in there, and a nosering and earrings!

Lol, fine. There are always more important things to do, but sometimes maybe MM wants to take an easy day when he's designing lol.

might not cause lag at all if done right(hair gfx are small), but the game might have to reload graphic everytime.

What's the point of modding it if you are THE ONLY ONE TO SEE? There really is no point, if custom gosteks could be seen by EVERYONE, which would be AWESOME, then yeah F12!!! I still don't get why this isn't implemented. If someone cares about lag,  there could always be an option "download custom gosteks y/n" if no, then only default gosteks would shot up.

Because you know squat about game programming.

F11

i dont need to say why...  modded hair is just a bad idea.   
if it is such a small graphic, why should you even care about it?  stuff like thats just gonna ruin this game.  imo it'll be around for a few more years at the rate this is going.   all this should be saved for when link-dead comes out.  for now, just leave the game alone, PLEASE.

edit: oops :# i diddnt see how old this topic was :( sorry
