oh please, please put this on a COH billboard


Recommended Posts

wow. Player created billboards for the city would be pretty cool.

 

I'd like to see some of those "Earth For Humans!" signs replaced.

They are awful xenophobic. The Rikti aren't the only non-humans in THE CITY!

There are characters in City of Heroes from all over the place and many of them aren't humans.

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.

I agree there are some of us who didn't originate on earth!

But.. I don't care either, earth is humanities home and if some feel that way, its okay... doesn't hurt me any!

I wouldn't say... Rikti aren't human though, or alien of sorts...😉

This could cause issues, especially if the creator snuck in something lewd or offensive, or otherwise tried to claim some sort of copyright/ownership later on.

If you like it, send me the in-game size for billboards and I'll redo it in the correct aspect ratio 🙂

This ad came from an origin story for one of my toons 🙂

 

 

There are steps you can take to change the billboards yourself. I have never tried it myself, but it's discussed in a texture thread here:

 

Dislike certain sounds? Silence/Modify specific sounds. Looking for modified sounds? Check out Solerverse's thread.

Got a punny character? You should share it.

We agree, we believe there should better messages presented on Earth's billboards.

 

We petitioned for one to be placed in Steel Canyon... even did the work ourselves to place it up... yet some hero tore it down...

 

Just because we wish to conquer Earth does not mean vandalism is justified.

Here is a link to a thread with links to the program I use (and have since live). The v1.3 build 350 is the one I use and I have many customized billboards. The ratios are as follows:  
Horizontal 4:1 512x128  (long and skinny, e.g. Pinnacle Apartments)
Horizontal 2:1 512x256 (most rectangular, e.g. Chris Jenkins attorney)
Vertical 1:2 256x512 (basic rectangle turned on its end, e.g. Major Flanders)
Vertical 1:4 128x512 (long skinny, but vertical, e.g. Red Beast energy drink)
Square 1:1 256x256 (square, e.g. Paragon City Pizza)

When you use Splasher, it give you the choice of which billboards to use. There is a checkbox "Apply to all textures in the selected category" - if you want different billboards, make sure this is unchecked. Then just pick which billboard you'd like to replace with yours, making sure the ratio is the same one you used to create it. It's a good idea to fly around and note where the original ones are so you know where yours will appear. 

I have custom log in screens, zoning screens, and the background for character selection/creation. You will end up needing both versions (see instructions in the thread at the link I posted above - it explains everything). I *love* Splasher. Please note this is CLIENT SIDE only, so the only one who will see your changes is you, unless you get others with which you share your textures to install them as well. 
Have fun!
