It occurs to me as someone who tends to have Far Too Many Characters, it would be nice to have the option to set up group photos with multiple characters -- something that makes sense with a team-oriented genre.
It seems like this would be relatively low-hanging fruit from a development perspective; the main question is whether it would be something a lot of players would jump on in the early stages of the game (i.e. Issue 0) when there may not be a lot to do in-game except character building and running around in the first zone. Seems like this would have a lot of potential to get some buzz about the game going, and showing off the character design features with more than just single shots off the Avatar Builder.
It would need some kind of instance to avoid photobombing issues, but maybe it could just be a simple interior instance with a special attribute that lets you spawn and pose your other PCs, instead of having NPCs present.
My guess as to the requirements:
- some kind of interior instance with one or more simple sets suitable for posing (e.g. basic stage, generic laboratory, rocky cave, etc.)
- a way to spawn other characters of the player in the set
- a way to do simple positioning and poses for the characters (which also requires changing the "active" character); I'm guessing there will be some emotes available that would be suitable
A stretch goal would be able to do it in a group with other players, so that team shots could be set up. But I suspect the technical issues would multiply a bit to support that.
