Coffee Diary 16/9/19

Hey Exanimates,

Here are the notes on today's dev meeting:

-The official forums and forum software have been updated. If you were having trouble signing up, try again!

-The animation system now supports deviations from standard human body structure; such as missing or extra limbs.

-Completed the visual effects and animation systems for a new character type.

-Talked about some future "side quests" and activities.

-Continued progress on the new levels, fleshing them out with some more unique environment props with a focus on delapidation. 👉😎👉

Have a great week!
-Zeth

I'd like to see norman (or nasal) and kettle helmets. It would also be nice to have a cloth jacket, for fashion purposes only, thank you for your amazing work :P. http://www.dhresource.com/0x0s/f2-albu-g3-M00-26-83-rBVaHFZ2Z0mAd0A8AAFynIqmbqs908.jpg/2016-customized-black-red-white-european.jpg

Would spiked armour be too much? I suppose that running into people and falling over onto them could work, or if an enemy were to attempt to do this instead of the player.

Possibly a helm with a metal net/wire at the front, sort of like this

Other than that, I've got no idea. Keep up the good work!

Knuckle weapons?
Rhabarber Barbar Apr 13, 2017 @ 1:20am 
neck protection as it's own thing
also, now that cloth physics are happening, how about some artsy feathery things or strips of coloured cloth attached to a helmet? classic decoration

I'd like the option to hide the helmet I'm wearing. Often in games I don't use a helmet at all because I wanna roleplay some specific character and a helmet ruins my face/hair. But in this game you really do need a helmet!! that makes me sad..

Hey zeth! I was wondering if we can get more variety as for the novice rank, expecially leather armor. With you we got some really sexy looking plate armor, brigandines and clothing, but no viable low tier armor.
Also kettle helms or morions (they are kind of similar). And I gave up on great helms. I guess like frog mouth helms, they are designed for a specific purpose and just don't fit the game.
And even if we'll never get a proper great helm a sugar loaf helm would be nice too http://www.ageofarmour.com/instock/images/sugarloaf-helmet-3.jpg

skirts. normal ones and ones made of leather like the romans (proably) had
you could also have metal ones but their historic accuracy is debatable

Pikeman armor had a kind of metal skirt to protect the legs, so that isn't too far off.

Or these armors:

Robes and tunics with hoodies.

Love the new "biker" jackets, btw.
Rhabarber Barbar Apr 13, 2017 @ 10:35am 
Maybe more varations of those jackets or similar. some with padding and/or partial mail and maybe even some plates.
stiched together armor
Rhabarber Barbar Apr 13, 2017 @ 12:17pm 
those are some good suggestions.

Hey! I don't know how many people wil know this game: Siege of Avalon, for me it was like the "core" game of my childhood, and one of my favorite things of this game was the inventory, and gearing my character with layers of cloth / armor, when i saw exanima i freak out just with the looks, and the posibilities of gear, just for that, i love you guys for eternity, since i always have waited for siege of avalon 2, wich never hapened, and well, your game looks like siege of avalon 8.0 xD with another thing that I always have dreamed of, the physics in combat, RESUMING xD (sorry!) Tabards x'D Siege of avalon had a lot of diferent tabards from every faction or "houses" and families in the castle you are stuck, and well, its beautifull wearing a tabard on top of an armor, I don't say cloaks beacuse well its pretty obvious, another thing would be just more variety, regarding Arena ranks, because if you want to wear the most effective gear for example in Adept, its almost always the same stuff, it would be nice, to not know really well what to put, because "so many choices" xD anyway, i'm freaking loving this game, no matter what happens <3 <3
Lazarvs Apr 13, 2017 @ 3:23pm 
I know this may not be the place, but since you are from the staff, just a suggestion, if I loved anything about Siege of avalon, was the inventory is just so beautifull, just check some google images and you will see, in case it can inspire you guys on the iventory of exanima. <3
