  1. Hello everyone! It's now been just over two years since Torchbearer, the very first Homecoming shard, came online, and 17 years to the day since City of Heroes first launched! It's been a very difficult year for all of us, with the pandemic impacting our lives in so many ways. Despite this, we're happy that City of Heroes has been a much-welcomed escape for many of you during this trying time, and we're incredibly proud of how the Homecoming community rallied around our [email protected] initiative to aid in vital Coronavirus research. Our [email protected] team is currently ranked #71 wo

  5. In fact, if you start playing again, you will the community is every bit as helpful and friendly as it was before, and probably even more so. We have the help and general chat channels in game on all servers; we have the Homecoming Discord, and we have these forums here. All of these are filled with people ready to answer questions, give advice, solve problems, hold hands if needed, and even help you get good names and design costumes. Just about the only thing we cannot do is get your characters from Live back again. Many of us dearly wished we could resurrect ours as well, but it

  6. Ok, its time yet again for some more character pic's of mine, but before I do I have a few comments to make first... 😁 First, @ChanelNo2 I love the gif of Permeation; so much so that its now my pic on my phone. Thanks ! 😋👍 Second, @Jawbreaker while I like that characters look very much, are you sure she is not one of this characters sisters? 😁 Hey @RikOz, I think someone else loves gold too... And @Christopher Robin, your rockin' it as usual; great work! 👍 And now finally onto my own characters,

  7. What's old is new again. Your first time back in AP, hear the theme music, and see Ms. Liberty again, almost like she's been waiting for you to return, you get flooded with feelings and memories you can't put a price on. (The irony is the game is free.) But the HC team is doing a fabulous job! Welcome Home!

  8. Oh you will be giddy when you see every costume item unlocked at the very start, every powerset free and customizable, every quality of life feature you ever thought of would've been nice back in the day, it's here! I have been playing on Homecoming since they went public and I've been nothing but happy with the way they've kept this fun little super hero game not just alive, but ready to thrive.

  10. Old costume I've had for some time. Figured I'd post it. The Watcher. It's a shame the game has such poor lighting. It looks much better in game.

  15. After reading the below thread, a suggestion suddenly came to me. One of the issues with the Mez Protection powers such as Clear Mind is that, in a large melee it might not always be obvious that a teammate is being Mezzed. The suggestion is simple: When a player is Mezzed, the word "Held!" appears above their head like damage numbers do. It would, of course, change depending on the type of Mez, and it would repeat every 5-10 seconds so that their teammates will be aware. Naturally, there should be an option to disable this if required, perhaps it should b

  18. Ted, those 11 characters were the result of tons of hours of trouble-shooting and testing, creative genius, artistic perfection, and a narrowing-down process, as well as endearing myself to them over time. They are the reason I am willing to go back to pc after being on console for several years. I miss them, just as I miss the game itself. Clean slate? That would be like scrapping Star Wars or The Princess Bride or Rocky and starting all over again. I need my heroes, I must rescue them. We can REBUILD them!

  19. Welcome back! When I first found Homecoming, I was feeling much like you. I really wanted my old characters back. As I'm sure many others did also. The truth is that it is very unlikely that those characters will ever be available. Sure, anything could happen - CoH came back from beyond after all. But as mentioned there are lots of legal reasons that make the chances slim to none. (not to mention it is claimed that no one actually has that data and if anyone does they would probably get in trouble if they released it.) So... THE GOOD NEWS is that it doesn't take

  21. I'm so glad that this game was revived. It is my favorite video game of all-time. I had played numerous mmos back in the day, and I narrowed them all down to just City of Heroes. Then I had computer problems and other trials in life, and by the time I finally returned, the game was being shut down! I was tired of having lag issues in my games so I finally gave up the pc and I just play on console now. I tried playing DC Universe Online (on Xbox) but it just doesn't compare to City of Heroes. It's like World of Warcraft compared to Everquest 2 (I was an EQ2 player). I do have Elder

  22. @Paraclete I want to second what Snarky says here. I've got an old rebuilt HP Desktop. It's a rugged old tater that's pretty useless for most modern games, but it runs CoH like nobodies business. If you get yourself a reliable, off-the-shelf desktop, you should really be fine. No super-advanced graphics cards required here. 👍 Also, in terms of remaking your old characters and getting them back up to their former levels, HC has made it very efficient and user friendly to level characters, compared to most MMO's. You can get double xp boosters for free and many people on the se

  24. Almost two years old now... but Powerbeam has gotten some alt costume love over that time. She has the above costume both with and without the fishbowl space helmet. She also has the same look above but with the glowy bits powered down, plus a minimal glowy version but without the under armor... Then there's the armor-only suit with rocket booster backpack that's more futuristic looking than the retro jetpack she normally sports. Also same without jetpack and the bubble helmet retracts to the semi-transparent piece behind her neck.

  25. I like this It would also be nice if pressing the jump button while mezzed would cause the message to appear... people will probably spam it but at least you'd be able to see who's crying out for help, right?

  26. I was going over it in my head during my nightly run, and realized that there are actually 11 characters that I want to recreate! I just have a couple of real-life hurdles to get through here, and then I'll look into getting that computer... I'm starting to get really excited!

  27. That's what The Prime Directive is from, yes. I don't want to derail this thread with a discussion of The Prime Directive, I just wanted to confirm that that is what I was referring to. If it matters, the Cottage Rule didn't say "don't tweak anything ever." What it says is "core functionality." Regardless of what I think of Castle, it's a good rule. I mostly agree with the OP. I don't think that the Cottage Rule should be invoked any time any one suggests any thing that you (or I) don't like. For example; the suggestion has been made many times to turn Rage into a toggl

  30. I'll double down on what MTeague has said. I discovered the HC servers late 2019. Got to play for about 4 months when my computer up and died on me. Hope to soon return beyond using this phone. But that 4 months saw me recreate my main from Live and play her up yo 50+. Point is they haven't passed in your memories and they can live again here on HC. Welcome back!!!

  31. Welcome! I'm not sure how doable Consoles are or not. Particularly given the kind of no-man's land that the legalities off the private servers exist in. I know lawyers can take for EVER to approve something, and NCSoft may actually prefer to leave the game in a legal limbo. I still have hopes something will come from the HC team talking to NCSoft, but it feels like all those decades when I hoped the Cubs could win the World Series, you know? Still, miracles CAN happen.... I do believe the question of reclaiming characters from LIVE has been answered with a firm Never

  32. That was very well said @KauaiJim, as always. But please remember that you too are a part of this great community of people who love City of Heroes, and the Homecoming forums. Without YOU, it would be like taking a little piece of color out of a work of art. True, there are shadows and blemishes here and there (as in any art form), but together... together... we can make art that brings tears to even the most jaded of us. City of Heroes (and yes villians... I am not forgetting you @Snarky lol) is a very unique game; so why wouldn't that extend to the great players AND developers who have come

  35. Hell I felt that way when I zoned into Atlas Park on Paragon Chat the first time. But loading into the log in screen, then the character creator and finally into Atlas Park ... and seeing other characters moving around, mobs! hearing the familiar sounds, seeing chat channels full of chat. Yeah screen got real blurry. And then came the rediscovering things so familiar but not quite recalled. Where was the portal to Oroborous, how to change my chat tabs around and rebind keys. What the heck is a DFB and why are all these folks hanging around near Ms Liberty but not actual

  39. I would just lean towards working it into the team ui instead of on screen. Things can be hard to see in this game, but I can always tell if someone's health bar turns bright pink or hatch marked or something.

  40. Thanks, guys, for your input. I'm pretty sure about doing it now, it's just a matter of when. Got a lotta things on my plate at the moment. I will reply to this thread once I've gotten a new computer. Like I said, it's my favorite game ever, and it even sounds like it might actually be a little better than it was before! It's so awesome that it has risen from the ashes...

  41. Welcome home 🙂 For the $800 you are willing to spend to get your characters back, you could easily buy a system that would run CoH at close to max, and I'll gladly help you level as many characters as you want. I'll even throw in a couple of hundred million inf to sweeten the pot.
