Customised Outfit logos


Will planetside 2 allow customized Logos for there outfits? Instead of the premade ones.

Like EvE online Alliances, It will add another dimension to the game. And certainly bring some ownership of being in a outfit.

Only down side, it takes dev time to add them in. EvE online takes about 6 months for a logo to go through a full check list.

I hope to see this.

I would be a fan. And it would be a good revenue source - surely the larger outfits would pay cash to do it.

It does seem like a good avenue to make some money. I know our outfit would chip in to buy a custom logo.

I really hope they consider this.

Re: Customised Outfit logos


I keep mentioning Flying Labs Studios' system for user submission in SOE-published game Pirates of the Burning Sea. It's effective, efficient, and works great at giving the community self-policing tools during the submission process to take the load for vetting submissions off of developer shoulders.

The planetside developers should totally go over to FLS, club their guys over the head with a few E3 Best in Show plaques, and make off with the system wholesale.

Higby has mentioned they do want to do this although I think it would probably be an after release thing.

I was going to mention this as well when I saw the thread title, it worked really well and for making outfits feel unique it would definately add a lot.

Higby also said he had reservations because of the obvious abuse of trust & power at adding custom decals and the need for monitoring.

I can only imagine the technical challenges of loading 500 outfit logos into GPU memory alongside all the other textures the game and various customizations use.

This is why something like what Flying Labs did with Pirates of the Burning Sea would be needed.
You would create your logo and submit it to the system, players would then vote yes/no to it. Once it receives enough yes votes an SOE staff member would give it a final check to make sure it is suitable content and either ok it for addition to the game or delete it as needed.

Or like someone else mentioned for money making purposes they could make it a function the outfit would need to club together to buy for a reasonable fee and then a logo can be submitted to SOE for approval. I would hope in that situation that people having paid for the privilege of having a custom outfit logo they would only be looking to submit things that would be suitable for approval. Of course you'd get idiots either way, you always do, but for the sake of a CSR checking things as they're submitted it would add so much to being in an outfit.

I totally agree, we need to have custom logo for our outfits, I would enjoy drawing my archangel for ours. Add to this a reasonable price or something and bam, great system to give a welcome customization and a sideline profit.

But it still need an efficient way of filtering those... akward content...

Cocks and Swastikas on day one. Perhaps even a combination of the two. A "Cwokstika" if you will.

The hindou "swastika" logo is white with black outlines, not purely black. So yes there is a difference.
