Some new interview with Matt Higby + character customization



The way Matt stresses that the key thing about customization is the way you progress through the extensive skill tree suggests that there will be no actual visual customizations. Which I think isn't really a bad thing, considering visual gizmos matter even less in an FPS than they do in MMORPGs. Also, customization = more assets = a hit on framerate.

Yay! New video!

Glad we got a little more clarification on leveling up your skills.

As far as your bit about visual customization, Higby said in one of the panels something along the lines of if you were to be an outfit that specializes in aircraft, when someone sees your armor they're going to be instantly be able to identify that you're some badass pilot.


If that's not the case from the get-go there's still plenty of time down the line for them to develop it.

I haven't been this excited for a game in quite some time. I'm always checking everyday for new PS2 things and reading the forums constantly trying to get whatever little bit of information I can to fill my craving. I fear that this is going to continue on up until PS2 finally gets released and it will be so surreal I might actually go into cardiac arrest.

My views on the armor customization: I believe it won't necessarily be about the shape of the armor, as much as the color pattern on it. Obviously the variations of colors need to stay empire specific but going into darker/lighter shades of red (TR), as well as streaks and splotches on the uniform. (i.e. a common TR player would have two red stripes on his torso armor, but Outfit X will have an "X" across their torso).

More over to the video... when Matt says something along the lines (regard to the Command tree) "ridiculous amount of progression" (around 4:30) down the squad leadership tree... kinda scares me... YAY for leadership roles!

I'm sure the location of the recources the towers will be placed on will define the distance between towers.

Am I the only one that watches True Blood and thinks The Higby looks like a young Bill Compton?

Good stuff.

I love how higby is just zipping his mouth and throwing the key away when release/beta date and buisness model is coming up at the end.

Damn, that video made me - yet again - crave for actual details on the skill tree. I am interested how they achieve a year long progression, maximum training time of 24 hours per skill and maximum 15-20% differential to an untrained newbie. One of these three thing's got to be a little bogus ..

Hopefully it won't be "Firepower +0.00001% Upgrade #32/2312 23:58:32 remaining.."
