Who here wants to see some special effects that will distinguish level 5 abilities from others?


[Image: THE1.png]


Some great ideas are flame trails for PS lvl 5, a different coloured explosion for BS lvl 5, a sightly smoking keg for EK lvl 5, having a materialisation effect for stealth lvl 5....
(just examples)


Please sign if you think its a good idea, and make some suggestions as to what the effects could be for each ability. To sign, all you have to do is reply to this thread by saying /sign


NOTE: ALL EFFECTS ARE FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY

ABILITIES -------------------------------------------------------- SUGGESTIONS

Leg It ------------------------------------------------ Leaves cracked/flaming footprints for a few seconds AND/OR different noise (train?)
Frenzy Fire ------------------------------------------ Enhanced lightning effect (covering the MG as well) AND/OR Tracer rounds
I Eats Grenades ------------------------------------- Enhanced whirlpool effect AND/OR different colour AND/OR "gobble" noise
Hero Shield ------------------------------------------ Red shield AND/OR royal/national emblem hovering over head
Explosive Keg --------------------------------------- Stereotypical bomb, flaming keg (flame colour red, yellow or blue) Could be 'kicked' rather than thrown, IED

6th Sense ------------------------------------------- Thermal imagery
Burning Bullets -------------------------------------- Blue or Red fire AND/OR SMG bursts into flames as well
Combat Medicine ----------------------------------- Green coloured heal radius AND/OR red cross sign hovering overhead
Grenade Spam ------------------------------------- Grenades look different, explosion colour different, single grenade to cluster bomb effect
Blasting Strike -------------------------------------- Blue electric look (kinda like an EMP) with a shockwave

Poisoned Blade ------------------------------------- Bright red poison
Mark Target ---------------------------------------- Laser designator type effect, AND/OR beam of light is emitted from the target high into the sky
Stealth ---------------------------------------------- Small sparks when stealthing instead of smoke OR just fade away with no smoke OR leave smoke behind
Troop Trap ----------------------------------------- Different coloured troop traps (digital camo?) Invisible troop traps (matched to stealth level)
Piercing Shot --------------------------------------- Fire trails AND/OR minature explosions on impact AND/OR red dot appears where aiming
Elixir ------------------------------------------------ More/different coloured smoke, flames instead of smoke/flaming footprints


NOT FOND OF THESE SUGGESTIONS? THEN TELL US WHAT YOU WOULD PREFER! Smile


Here are some more pictures of proposed special effects!

Combat Medicine
Piercing Shot
Poisoned Blade
Hero Shield

Thanks goes to pyrotronic for the excellent screenies above!
CoCoNutzZz made the BB example, and the rather fetching signature logo!

MAKING THE SPECIAL EFFECTS OPTIONAL:

There will of course be an option to turn off the special effects, if you believe that your computer/laptop isn't powerful enough to handle the effects, or that they might give away your ability setup. As an added feature, each ability gets its own 'button', meaning that if you dislike a certain effect attributed to a single ability, you don't have to turn all of them off! The current options enable the effects to either be viewed by everyone, no-one, or just your teammates. Smile

Here is what I propose:

I actually have to agree with Timberwo1f that it's a problem that opponents will get to know your skill's level. For example, I'd fight a Gunner using FF lvl 5 alot differently than one using FF at a lower level. It would also be really useful knowing how long an ability works (does it have max duration, or something lower?), what damage boost the ability give (max, or lower?), being able to make a guess what abilities at what level my opponent has, etcetera.

So, I disagree. Everything that helps the opponent is bad. Now if only your teammates would see the lvl 5 effects, THEN I'd agree.

Level 5 keg turns into one of those stereotypical Round bombs with a skull and crossbones on it.
Sixth sense, A spinning satellite appears on you're back.

And lvl 5 stealth could have a powerful glow so everyone can see you crawling around and think "Woaw, there is a really stealthy, invisble commando with lvl 5 stealth right there!"

And lvl 5 Troop Traps could flash greatly with red light alerting the enemy.

Oh, and lvl 5-piercing shots making SHOOP-DA-WOOP-LAZORS would've been ossum! Tongue
