Since it's "art week", do we want to play along and ask art-specific questions?

Re: Twitter QnA Question list : ART WEEK


NC LOOK

* What is the art inspiration for the NC's new look?

* Can we get some better images of that new look?


WEAPONS

* Pix of the Jackhammer or it ain't real.

* Pix of Phoenix please.

* Renders of just the weapons would be good and fansites could use them for other purposes I'm sure.


TANKS

* Would like to see a tank image of the Prowler (seen the other two, haven't seen prowler).

* Would like to see a tank image with both primary and alternate secondary guns (like a mortar or flak cannon).


STRUCTURES

* Would like to see some base, tower, and bunker layouts.

* Would like to see images of interior of base and tower and bunkers.


MAPS

* Would like to see a continent map image.

* Would like to see the player's view of available missions and how they interact with them.

* Would like to see what the create-mission interface looks like.

* Would like to see the resource view of the map and territory control.


OUTFIT

* Outfit management interface would be nice to see.


CUSTOMIZATION

* Got images of class select screens?

* Cert tree view?

* Picking any other customizations, like implants?


MUSIC?

* I think music falls under art, but you might disagree. Is Don Ferrone the composer for PS2 music? (Any answer other than "yes" is considered epic fail.)


SOUND

* Does each weapon and vehicle have its own distinct sounds? It was great in PS1 how you could tell the difference between a gauss, cycler, and pulsar by its sound. Same with HA, tanks, pistols, shotguns, AV, etc.

Re: Twitter QnA Question list : ART WEEK


A followup to that would be to show us renders of one particular weapon and show how each variant differs from the others.

While he might be able to tweet images, I'm not so sure. I suggest one of the first questions be:
"Can you tweet images, or just answer questions?"


More questions:

How many different in-game models of the Mosquito have their been? What vehicle/class has had the most?

Does your concept->"in game" pipeline involve pencils or real models, or is it all on the computer?

What fraction of the art staff has formal artistic training?

What will we see that you personally designed, textured, modeled, and/or animated?

Which of your accomplishments from PS1 are you most proud of?

Re: Twitter QnA Question list : ART WEEK


I'm wondering if they plan on allowing any player generated art content at some point. Ideally we could create our own logos or skins, approve/upload them.

But it could start just with outfit logos. Having a predetermined list like PS1 isn't the way to go. How CoD Black Ops did their Playercards is a good example. It's still a list of items to choose from, but you can modify the color, size, angle, multiple layers, all with hundreds of symbols to use. Occasionally you see the strange gorilla-unicorn sex, but the game is all ready gonna be rated teen I bet, so vulgar things can be expected, but it can also be monitored.

This would be a great thing to sell at the cash shop. Verifying logos takes real people time, so let us pay for it. You could even make it moderately expensive (20 USD +/-), and make a relatively rare Prestige Thing.

Re: Twitter QnA Question list : ART WEEK


Napalm it ain't an interview. If you don't like my questions move on. I want to see some of the UI design. If they dont' show it they don't show it.

I've edited my initial response to your post to take the edge off. Apologies.

Re: Twitter QnA Question list : ART WEEK


All shortened to be up to 140 chars with "@planetside2 " at the beginning.

NC design is focused on old tech. How does that and resources fit the "we use nanites to summon stuff out of thin air" concept?

If vehicles always (?) use their faction's colors, will the NS color scheme only be seen on guns and crates, but never on vehs?

The Lib was put under the NC art description. Coincidence or will there be empire-specific design elements in common vehicles?

That Mosquito (TR only?) looks like a gunship. Does this mean the Reaver is NC, and a "gunship" is an AV/AI-customized fighter?

Will the Magrider even have a secondary gunner? It doesn't look like there's enough room for a small turret on that model.
