Gas Masks?
« on: October 27, 2008, 07:41:26 pm »
Alright this isn't really a necessity, but i would like to see the customization option of giving your guys facial covers, like a gas mask or a shee mog(is that how u spell it?) or a fighter pilot helmet. it would be sweet in the sense that clans could then have matching faces and thing like that. also, maybe just the option to add like a colored vest or backpackk to your guy would be cool. just thinking about it and thought i would get other people's opinions...

As a gas mask enthusiast, I wholeheartedly support this.

That being said, MM once stated that there won't be any additional customization features... but with new coders, who knows?

General attitude torwards suggestions like this is its a good idea, but when there are all kinds of bugs and stuff to be fixed, its probably not going to happen.

F12.

Make it an additional option for registered users, so that more people will register, I really can't believe MM wants more people to register when the benifits are outragously low.

Personally I think when it comes to player customisation thingies like this, we need dropdown boxes per section as opposed to bullets.

So you would have a gostek folder for hair, face, chest etc. Then when you go to face options, select gasmask out of the face dropdown box.
Physical bodypart gosteks would remain the same. The gfx for these remain static as normal.

Now the problem is that you cant add more stuff into those folders (each player needs the same files in a server for others to see your custom gosteks). So the alternative is to have as many gfx in these gostek folders as possible in the first place [on the install].

So /face/ <blank>, gasmask, ninja, jason hockeymask, splitter paint, sunnies, goggles, beard. Just a gostek the size of the head graphic that is overlayed on top of the head.

/chest/ <blank>, vest (not kevlar), backpack, bulletbelt, space invader.  Just a gostek aroughly the size of the torso graphic that is overlayed on top.
Chest is a bit unnecessary, but interesting.


Were not talking bout difficult stuff, and it means that with little more content, players feel a bit more satisfied. Makes your avatar a bit more unique, and can be fun when it comes to modding.

Could even make such Soldat 'avatar' options reg only.

F12. I'd like to see beard also.

And that's also a good idea.

Can you add a poll? Maybe if there would be a lot of positive votes in poll it would convince developers.

I doubt polls help convince developers, as they are only supposed to consider it if -about- 90% or more are for it, negating the need for a poll, not that it doesn't help, particularly with more than two sides or views to discuss.

Still, this could be modded (by turning the Hat into a Gas mask is possible I believe? or even the helmet) but it would be real nice to see more customization features. But don't give it all to the registered users.. should leave more functional items for them imo, and not to let it turn out like combat arms :)

What about a poll with 94 votes for yes and 18 votes for no? :) Even if this isn't 90% support, the fact that almost one hundred users voted for yes would be impressive and I think devs would consider implementing such idea :)
In general there are usually more votes in a poll than posts in the thread containing that poll, so polls are more precise.

F12, very interesting and I support this idea 100%. Also maybe Dark Glasses (Night-Vision Goggles?), belts or Thieve/Robber Balaclavers could also be implemented.

Good point. Everybody's wanted all kinds of extra customization since Soldat has been around at all, and MM wouldn't budge, though I can't say I blame him. Supposedly, the gostek programming is just extremely inefficient to try to modify, but maybe there's a chance now that it's a multi-man project. Maybe.

If so, heck, I'm always a big fan of customization, so I'll support this.

mmm, it's not a bad idea, but I just think Soldat should be more gameplay-based then the looks of the men...
Still, I support for the heck of it.  Would be pretty cool.

Where's the poll?

Anyway, I'd say its a F12. I agree that the feature is pretty useless in the sense that it is only for appearance and modding can be done, but I'd still support greater variety.

Nothing special, but makes the game cooler. Not much time needed making it either, so f12. Though in the mean time we can do it with modding.

Make it an additional option for registered users, so that more people will register, I really can't believe MM wants more people to register when the benifits are outragously low.

The point of registering is (and always has been) to support the game.  It used to be that the only benefits of registering were that you were able to change the color of your jet flames... you don't really think MM is stupid enough to expect people to pay $9 for that, do you?

The little things that have been added here and there over the past few years as benefits to registered players are intended to allow those people who registered to customize their game, they're not intended to be the driving force behind registration.

That's why I registered, but what I'M saying is that he can't expect to get anymore than fanboys (like me) that play the game every single day (like me), to register, the only way HE'S gonna get the money he wants is to add more features for registered users, he put up a poll asking people if they registered yet or something, he can't expect to get lots of people if he doesn't give benifits, over 30% (38) people said that they didnt see enough benifits, that's what is leading in that poll...

Now, almost every single person in the thread said F12, that's more than 90%...

Yeah, if within next few days there will be no one against this, we should add this idea to public demands.
