Thread: Creatures that don't ALWAYS look the same

  
  1. #1

    Default Creatures that don't ALWAYS look the same

    I just joined and I read something about whether skeletons should have shields or 2 H swords. Can't they have both? Wouldnt it be beautiful if time was taken to make the minions individuals before I slap them to them because they are to slow? Some ideas would be like warlocks with randomized hair color, hair styles, clothing trims, Or whether theyre gloved or gloveless.

    If that's too much then at least make level 10s look different than their lower levels (like a level 9 would look like a scrub and level 10 would be a total beast)

    This would have a big influence on the Lair Design of the character. Wether they have a 2h sword or a shield. Since so far, the idea is, the equipment would be at the lair, whenever it is occupied. And eventhough it is great with a lot of unique and different things in a game, you gotta look at the aspect, that things take time to create and the more you have to create the longer it takes. So far we already have loads of characters - so it will might be something we can add later on, when more of the game is done.

    I would love that to be the case - but it would extremely lengthen the time to develope the game i guess. Maybe after they've finished everything else, and if they aren't already to exhausted to do so they may add it last thing.

    Something like this would be something I absolutely love to be in the game. It does get dull to see the same thing over and over.

    But, as MeinCookie stated, it might unnecessarily increase development time. I suppose it could be some sort of 'patch' later after the main game is complete.

    Firstly, 'human is not the same'. You missed out a word there. You see, there are girls and boys. And different people have different hair and eye colors, and builds and even hairstyles. Walk amidst a crowd and say 'human is the same.' The world isn't populated by clones and neither should my dungeon be ',=/

    Read the first post - honestly. If you are going to argue with it than at least come up with a valid argument rather than stating untruths
