New Travel Mode


Recommended Posts

I was recently thinking about this too, we have a number of animals already coded into the game, such as wolves, lions, etc.

 

And can we have these powers merely suppress toggles, not turn them off completely?

Doesn't the 'beast run' give you the option to run on all fours, regardless of your costume? I know its not quite the same as a full body transformation, but its still really close, and it doesn't suppress your toggles at all.

I'd like a bird form to fly.

I know. having my werewolves change into a coyote form is a bit weird.

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

yes, but I get where the OP is coming from. You do run on all fours with beast run, but you move to a two-legged stance as soon as you stop moving.

The animal form travel powers (coyote & panther?) are very cool. I'd like to see them expanded to other animals we already have the models for (e.g., from the beast mastery -- wolves and lions).

 

Further, and this is probably the hard part, I'd like them to have basic pose emotes for standing or sitting still, and also a walk mode for when the walk power is enabled.

Considering Walk suppresses other travel powers? Not likely.

 

Edit: The only way I could see that working is if instead of a travel power that suppressed your character's powers, it was a full transform like CO has. Where the character is transformed into a different character complete with his/her/its own powers. Since it would be a full transform instead of a travel power, it could include its own walk power.

Or perhaps a travel power with a pop-up tray for sit and stand poses, and slow and fast speeds.

IIRC, the various MM wolf pets already have some of their own animations, so it shouldn't be too difficult to port them over to such a power...

I tried to combine Circle and DE, but all I got were garden variety evil mages.

Why's it gotta be all beasts?  Can we get a flight power that turns us into the hero/villain team transport vehicle?  I mean, not technically transforming into vehicles but implying that the hero is inside piloting the vehicle, sort of like Skyraider bosses.

That would be much more interesting to me than the OP, tbh. lel

 

Better yet, can we get a motorcycle travel power? XD

I am given to understand animations are the most difficult part of adding new things to this mess of a game, but I'd be happy with a motorcycle I could ride around on for RP even if it came with Jump Height -9999% like some of the ground powers that stick you to the ground do. Uh, ice slick, I think, or something? Can't jump while in it. Give that same debuff to the motorcycle while you're on it, and now you don't have to make a jump animation XD

It would be pretty easy to get some recording of a chicken squawk too to add to that.

Land vehicles are more problematic because of the way the game treats movement.  We would be able to strafe left and right without the wheels reacting accordingly, so... chances of a motorcycle happening are slim to none.  I would love to see the motorcycle (used in one of the Thugs MM summons) without the wheels and given little rockets to explain the levitation, and we can have bikes like DC's Lobo or the 90s Avengers skycycles.

I always thought they could do this with motorcycles. All they have to do, really, is create your character sitting on a bike. Not very animation-intensive.

Motorcycles would require more than just that given how characters move and how motorcycles don't. I would love to have vehicle type options in the game including motorcycles, but cars and motorcycles don't have lateral movement capability. How about speederbikes like from Star Wars or grav bikes like from CO?
