Vanu aesthetics buff incoming (colour and camo)


Following on from several threads last week here and on Reddit discussing how the Vanu aesthetics may be connected to their current population issues, we now have this from Higby yesterday:


It appears just to affect colours and camo coverage at the moment, no changes to models. Any thoughts? Will it help? Will it be enough?

Sonny

EDIT: We now have an album of the before/after colour changes of each Vanu class, look here

Plus the new camo coverage can be seen here

And just after I posted this, TRay now says there will eventually be model changes for each faction to better match the lore:

Please no glowing bright shinny stuff, especially on the Infiltrator.. emphasis on Camo! Look forward to seeing the new looks.

The way I read the higgers twitter was that the base suit's and camo coverage were bieng changed .

We'll see soon enough I guess one way or another its a welcome change for the VS's infantry design .

I'm pretty sure it's colour specifically too and not just camo changes. From a follow-on tweet from TRay:

It's sad. I wish it was a some basic class models re-design.

In one of his tweets PS_Tray mention "more color as in more dark grey"...
Does it mean we won't be wearing purple and teal armor in the future but purple and grey?

It will help. The teal is particularly insipid. As to whether it is enough; only time will tell.

Hopefully we'll get some model changes too; the MAX in particular looks stupid.

And please get rid of the stuffy academic voiceovers!

Re: Vanu aesthetics buff incoming (colour and camo)


I seriously doubt Ray would remove our purple and teal colours, all he's doing is just adding a bit more bad ass dark grey on our suits to make us more appeling to the new players.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks, it should come out very soon since it's just a few new grey textures.
I'm also wondering how the new character models for all three sides will look like in the future.

I acutlly like the VS voice actors, the TR and NC ones kinda sound like douche bags, specialy their taunts.
I also love the VS announcer , he sounds like a wise old man which imo is awesome. Not all FPS games need to have some annoying general screaming down your ears while you're playing.

The NC have an annoying girl which is trying to act bad ass but fails
And the TR have a generic general which loves to rape your ears

One of the reasons that I especially like to kill Vanu.

I do have a VS char, currently around BR6, which I created to try out Dual Comets, and I have to say that I find the old fart really irritating, especially when he's chastising me for failing to defend a base.

I have to say that VS announcer voice reminds me of Leonard Nimoy voice as Spock... One of the reasons I choose to play VS

Permission to call the general a douche bag is denied.
