Focused Feedback: Custom Weapon Expansion


Recommended Posts

I took two shakes to glance at the new Mace, "Power Maul," last night.  It's cool, always glad to see mor tech-themed hittin' sticks.  But unless I'm wrong, it seems to only inherit a single color.  Any chance it could get two color values, one for the weapon and one for the energy glow?

Vanguard 'MAGI'


Custom colours for the MAGI options are a bit... tricky to work with. It seems there's an inherent particle effect that you need to combine with the custom selection in order to achieve what colour you want.

I was testing this on a staff Brute who is generally black/gold in theme and the only way I could achieve a gold particle effect on the MAGI version of the staff was to select turquoise.

If I pick the same row of colours that give gold the result is blue:

If I pick the teal blue/turquoise option however I end up with something that matches the rest of the costume

How the staff appears in game when the primary is the above turquoise.

Additionally the purple Vanguard markings cannot be edited on either version of the staff

Same thing happens with other MAGI variants like with War Mace.

"Orange/gold" gives blue

While turquoise gives "gold".

Technically it's an old mace since it's pre-GR Dominatrix trash mob weapons.

You can change the colour though it encounters the same problems I've outlined in the rest of this post.

Try copying them over to brainstorm to see what happens -- it SHOULD finally be fixed.

 

Note, this does not resolve the beam rifle attack "Single Shot" doing a standing on the ground animation when being fired when flying

All the proliferation is great and looks good on the characters I have tested it with. I just made an Arachnos Soldier with no Arachnos theming so the weapon option are very much appreciated there.

Are there any plans to add scaled up versions of existing weapons to Titan Weapons?  Such as Katanas, Ninja Blades, Chinese swords etc?

There are similar ones in the likes of the game For Honor but those are variations of the standard uhh Shikomizue Blade and Scabbard, Masakari Axe, Guandao, etc but the one you are refering to be in size would be the Nodachi, in-game this could be just a secondary version of the Katana we have now. I would like this then I can justify my own For Honor oc in game 😄

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the inclusion of the Power Maul!  Now my modern, giant brute Fightanic can have something modern and slick while not looking like he purchased a weapon at a Ren Fair. My only other desire in this is that the colors could work, especially for the energy discharge, but I realize that's a bit much to ask.  I will point out that I was confused at first as it shows I can select 2 colors, though neither affects the results, of course. (In my defense I visited Icon before I had my morning cup o' joe.) Might there be an opportunity to hide the color "options" for those weapons that are not color-customizable, sparing confusion for poor addled minds that haven't had their daily infusion of caffeine yet?

 

Everything else so far has been without issues.

Huh?  For me, the first color selection changes the color of the energy.  (The second color appears to do nothing).

Thanks, I'll go back and investigate.  I'm not really sure why I didn't see it when I changed colors on my beta test.  I had a dark red I was attempting to use.  Hoping it was a fluke.

Got it, and now realize my mistake (Did I mention I was lacking coffee? :classic_blush: ).  I'd started with the weapon sheathed, and was assuming the white dots that supposedly generate the energy discharge represented one of the colors.  Since neither the stick nor the dots changed colors on my attempts, I'd assumed it was everything.  Once I dispensed with the sheathing, it was clear to see the one color change available: the electrical field.

I love all of these new options, more stuff available for customization is wonderful.

 

If I could be selfish, I'd like to ask for more blades for Titan Weapons--we got a lot of blunt smashy stuff and only one pseudo-kind-of cutty stuff.

That's purely selfish, though! This is still absolutely fantastic as it is!

I just noticed that Grave Knight is not being expanded to Katana / Ninja, which is a grave oversight...
