So I've been thinking, how

So I've been thinking, how about bees? I wanna make a guy that shoots bees from his body, why make a guy that has some weird dumb power like fire or lightning when we could fire a beam of solid bees. Plus for a flight animation I-uh-WE need to ride on a cloud of bees!

Also this powerset just wouldn't bee complete without a beekeeper hat/mask.

The rest of a beekeeper uniform could probably be made with basic costume parts though.

With all the talks regarding

With all the talks regarding Items of Power in the Requests/Suggestions threads we have (Props, costumes, animations) I have a series of gifs I'd like to share.

Somehow I just learned about Menat, a newer Street Fighter character that uses a powerful orb/crystal ball to attack (apologies for the varied quality of gifs I could find):

She seems to use these animations for melee and mid-ranged attacks. Pretty cool!

I want a slime particle

I want a slime particle effect. Like I know we are getting a water particle effect but there are other liquids that I want to reproduce that are less viscous, like if I make a character that can control mud I don't want him to look like he's spraying diarrhea everywhere

not my video just one I lke ===> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6-SdIN0hsM

1) I love the mummy wrap costume.
2) and the jiggly butt kick animation is awesome!

To build on the above posts, I would like a dancing style martial arts. That would be way cool.

OK with auras, I would like a sayan style aura where your hair floats up as long as the aura is toggled on.

I don't think auras could modify the costume of your character... it seems to complex to set it on my opinion.
you should think auras as some FX around your character ^^

I believe it's already been confirmed that auras can be fairly complex, from solid-seeming objects moving around you to the light shows we're used to when we think of auras. I'm not saying they would do a super-saiyan hair thing, but I think they safely could.

I doubt anyone would stop you if you wanted to. :)

I've been actually meaning to do it again for costumes (to effectively create a Costume Request 3.0) but I keep getting side-tracked. If someone beats me to that I probably wouldn't mind - otherwise I'll get to it eventually.

At this point I might wait on the costumes at least long enough to see what we're going to get in the "Issue0" release. That way I could weed out some of the "suggestions" that actually got made already.

When I decided to make the Costume Request 2.0 thread I requested the Devs lock the original thread just so everyone would make a "clean jump" to the new thread. I'd bet if you do a good enough job with a new thread the Devs might do the same for you.

We should have that as an attack animation.

Heh, loved how he ran out of "ammo". But big YES to be able to have ones hands in that position, though emanation point would probably still be just "hand".

True and I really like the way Monkey draws his staff.

Just like Voltron:

Aaaaaand done! This took basically all day :p I tried to encapsulate each suggestion in a quip, but I think I'll add some links to videos since animations are harder to google (as I've learned the hard way).

I do think it's good enough to suggest locking this to move over. Also, having gone through this thread...it's a mess :p

I just want to throw minions. :D As a note, doable in DCUO, as long as they are held/entangled first. Throwing my minions... that's the basis for a power set.

I'd really like for there to be a "bulky" set of animations for running, attacking, and walking around. I feel like the power armor animations from Fallout 4 do a lot in that regard - movement has more momentum and weight behind it, suggesting that the character is very heavy, and the gait is long and powerful.

Funny you should say that. I've been working on a bulky package theme and will probably have it up today or tomorrow.

I know this has ABSOLUTELY been said, but I need more than anything "Super Speed" packages, even for stuff like ranged attacks.

Absolutely neeeeeddddd....with things like "whirlwind hands" and "super spinning" for pushes and holds, etc...

Well get your keister over to the Package Theme page and make one. What are the kinds of things you're looking for in a speedster character? Be specific. Because if you rely on others to do it, you'll never get what you want. Sometimes it might be better, but never bespoke to your imagination.

Sorry for the double post,

Sorry for the double post, but it's not my fault no one else posted on this thread in the past three+ months.

In the writeup for Deckler Fountain there is the following statement:

Quote:

Citizens, heroes and villains all occasionally toss the fountains a few coins for luck.

So, of course there needs to be an emote of some kind to toss a coin in the fountain.

I've seen a lot of people turn away and toss the coin back over their shoulder into the fountain, so that's an option. I've also seen a more sedate underhanded toss into the fountain. Then there's the thumb-flicked coin toss as well.

If there's going to be "coin toss" emotes there needs to something like the following:

as well as the ability to jump into the fountain and steal the coins for the desperate, low level villain types. ;)
