[Other] Community Made Avatars (Unlockables)
« on: August 04, 2013, 09:33:10 PM »
It's come to my attention people are still making Avatars hoping for them to be included in the game.

There was a post I made somewhere that I'm no longer accepting community avatar submissions because we are redesigning the avatar system. But I can't find the post.

So to anyone currently or thinking of designing some avatars for the game, please understand they will not be added to the game because the new avatar system will be replacing everything avatar related.

Just a quick Question, will the old avatars be saved? by this I mean will people keep their avatars that they unlocked, but just in the new design.

What if we were to draw up concept art instead of just building them?

If you like. But I'm not going to have time to consider any until next year.

Does this mean in the near future the avatar system is going to be rebuilt? Perhaps update 2.1... hopefully bone animation will come with that too! :D

How wil this work? By this I mean like how will the whole thing look and be used or implemented into the game? Will it be a objective to unlock the skin? Will it be something like buying the skins or will it be like putting the skins in yourself?

avatars will still be unlockables, aka do things to earn the avatars, the avatars need to be replaced as each avatar takes up alot of ram. so we can't improve them, and there all different shape and size which has there own complications.

in the future the plan is to have mine craft like cuboid's. as they are efficient.
also we can then make the armer actually appear on the avatars and not just as an invisible cloak.

hoping to have joins in the arms and knees so move well and to improve combat.

bone animation is coming but its a lot of work.
Craig is giving us a lot in the next update and future ones to distract us while he dose some serious work.

Thats the plan anyway to my knowledge. welcome to fill in the blanks.

Maby in the future we could possible have our avatars in the game if they meet the requirements but there is a lot to do before that, just keep your avatars as ideas or make them for fun but don't expect anything soon. all the avatars will change a lot in the future.

I wanna say it'll be like this:

We would have three primary sizes:
Tall
Medium
Small.

Each one of those would have the current avatars to be chose from. I.E /gk would be optional if you chose to equip the tall model. Sage if you chose the small model.

From what I understood was avatars would be made of cuboids of different sizes is what martin explained.  So having different races is a good possiblity. 
What I am hoping for is an online editor simalar to some of the MC ones where you get 3D models and you can texture them.  Then they could be saved to an online Library.  This way we the community could make hundreds of outfits and take some of the effort of the devlopers.  I would be willing to do it myself making generic outfits for all the races we have now and some new ones.  This way we can have villages with all kinds of NPC filling them instead of having 1 King for one race we could have 10 kings for every race.  Diversity will make this game great.
