Playable character models. [ideas]

32 posts in this topic

These are some kind of characters I would love to see as playable:

The prepper. This one would be like with all tactical gear and stuff but he is a civilian. (Image from STALKER)

The paranoid. This guy was a scientist lost in the initial chaos and now he is fighting with fellow survivors, why paranoid? because he still wears his hazmat suit.

The surviving soldier. He was left behind by his squad and now (as the one avobe) he is fighting along survivors. (somewhat similar to the soldier from 28 weeks later)

The girl. Just a random survivor girl. I picture the character somewhat like this. (yes that is Zoey, lol)

The hunter. This guy would be like all dressed up as a huntsman

The businessman. This guy is still on a full tuxedo. (Aaaand yes this is hitman)

I Hope you like my suggestions, thanks!

NMRiH's dev team are short of resources to do character models right now AFAIK.

There already is a hunter, he's even called "The Hunter", and for the umpteenth million time, I'm pretty sure they're avoiding making military-esque characters intentionally.

As for females, they're necessary (for the girl players obviously, my girlfriend doesn't like playing as a dude), but the team's resources are limited, and that would require a new voice actress. And (just me personally) I'd rather see an original female survivor, not somebody over-sexed, over-attractive, and/or based off other existing characters, I'd want somebody new. People don't really have time to still look pretty during the end of the world, although Maxx is an obvious exception.

And what I'm mainly concerned about is releasing a female character would suddenly lead to 80% of players playing as her because guys are creepy. I think a good way to fix that would be to make her not Caucasian (because most people would totally rather have a white girl than a different ethnicity girl, because people are totally secretly racist not really, lol).

I feel that would be a good way to incorporate a female character without most of the players instantly switching to that character, of course that's only my opinion, I'm not trying to start anything.

As for a guy in a hazmat suit, how would he bite you when he turns into a runner? lol

I hope if/when they add female skins we can still use the male voices. I prefer playing as a transgender survivor

I think all characters change a little bit when they turn, maybe we can have his mask like broken? lol

I suppose. I kinda like the idea of a hazmat type person, but I think a full suit would be overdoing it a little bit.

Trannys are very realistic actually. You should search out drag queens, like there won't be at least 1 drag queen to survive the apocalypse

I really hope they add a female survivor. I agree she shouldn't be revealing, but I hope she has a nice ass.

I'm an ass girl. :wub:

Can by any means can we create our own character/avatar (it's like most rpg game when you first create a character before playing)? If that is possible there would be a much more sense of randomization, it feels more random and i don't think there is two or more people who are exactly the same. The random feeling makes it more realistic since people don't dress exactly the same and have the same face. It may require more manpower and resource but it would be awesome as hell to be in the game...

That would be amazing. That would be the best thing they could do with this whole character thing, and as you said, I didnt suggest this because I think the dev team doesnt have the manpower or resources to do that, so it would be me just dreaming (still im not loosing hope, lol).

Plus it would be one of the first Source mods which implements character creation (i personally never seen one before). Even if it was the most minimal character customization i would still love to see it.

Well what if NMRiH used your Steam id's gender which will automatically show you either males(if your steam is a male) or females and if people haven't chosen a gender on Steam just force the male characters on them.

Works in theory doesn't it?, but hell teleportation works in theory also...

True, though I feel like people could run into issues with that if say, they're using their brother's or sister's account. Then again, steam accounts and NMRiH are free, so I guess that works.

I wouldn't want to make a new account just so I could live out my Bateman fantasies :P If anything, once we create at least 8 characters or more we'll probably allow only one of each character in a round to prevent duplicates

But then what will happen to the duplicate characters? Let's say I'm playing as Molotov and so is another guy, would I not be Molotov on his screen, and would he not be Molotov on my screen? Something like that?

I like idea of character lock, let's say easy way is to let player get character that he/she like then lock it to his/her account. No gender lock but, but rather choice lock.. like in rpg games.. you can make any character you want really... but when you make it you're with that character to the end. :)

sorry quoted you by accident

Someone brought up character customization earlier. I believe that might be the best option for NMRiH, because it will allow more variety between different players. Since the developers have limited resources, I would suggest splitting the character model to 3 main pieces: head, torso and bottom. Perhaps accessories could be introduced at a later date.

For example: the head group would ideally include a small amount of main meshes (could be different ethnic groups: Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, African-American etc.), each having a few different selectable variations in texture that were made beforehand. if done right, these could produce a different look based on the same mesh. The torso group would include about 6 meshes or so, these should be pretty simple tops like t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, buttoned shirts etc., each of those also having different color textures and patterns. The pants should also be produced in a similar manner. What I've been thinking about for accessories would be items that would go over the default mesh in order to allow further customization: bags, harnesses, equipment belts etc. all come to mind.

I think this is possible to create a system similar to that with Source's features.

I definitely do not think this game needs a Sims-like character customization system, but this could be a nice feature in this game. It would also be less work for the developers, because in theory, they wouldn't have to worry about specific character concepts. I'd also like to think that some players would create less-than-forgettable characters with this tool, and that'll add something fresh to this game.

I second this but it would take a long time to make this. They would have to make more models for separate body parts, clothes and hair and stuff. Also the textures. Plus the character customization would take some time to make. The characters might look derpy too. I already like the original survivors anyway
