    Dye system we have is a work in progress these are earlier screenshots of the system as it was being dialed in. We're creating a system that allows us a massive range of colours and options vs making a new asset for every single colour on each race's set of armour. Every full suit of armour has 120 separate assets(6 races, 2 sexes, 10 pieces per suit). Every single colour requires changing all 120 of those assets, 1/2 of them are resizes for the different sexes so it makes it easier but still each piece needs to be edited to create a suit of armour.

    As far as I understand the models Rex has made they were done using the leaked standalone and by swapping the assets for the updated pieces which means each piece is updated manually.

    This system will allow for a lot more possibilities without such manual intervention and users can mix them around to try out all the combinations they want. We'll be able to easily add in new colours and as we mature this system it will look better and better once it is fully dialed in.

    TCS is slowly coming together in the background but it's requiring a lot of backend changes that have slowed it down to get it in as we want. TJ is still working on it but is also helping out on other components including dyes, research and lawful changes. It's still in development though but we're not letting the challenges with that system slow down other development. It's become a long-term feature while most of the team is working on other things that will add content and improve the game now.

    "we're working on a new starting tutorial planned for this patch."

    IMO the most important bit, I hope you guys put care into it. Putting all noobs together is a great idea as well. Dyes might make me log in to check them out and create some rainbow sets. Hard maybe.

    I still retain my faith in this games success... whereas everyone I talk to have lost it.

    I trust you guys will pull through, but I'm going to remind you anyways in case you forgot... GIB ARENA

    Yes an Arena is planned as we announced for EoW.

    I tried to get my client working tonight at the end of the night... got some sets made but had issues getting recording setup(New to it had to fiddle :D).

    I got a recording done but this is the result lol:


    Apologies on my voice I'm very stuffed up and sick right now heh... but at least I got the recording stuff sorted out so I can get a recording when I get my char sorted out!

    I didn’t @ you cuz I didn’t want your snarky/high horse response, which is why I asked Andrew.

    Thanks Andrew

    Yay for the pointlessness of this patch rather than fixing combat or the territory control patch which is what over a year late? That might actually bring some people back to the game to pvp.

    Updated with out of date photos. Now you need 10 times more content for me to want to support that kind of marketing.

    Yea if we'd get the damn thing. I want the game to be played as it was in beta. Dont start with all that buff other changes and screen shake and whatever. Revert or dont.

    Waiting a day or two to get "up to date" previews would have been better. Also how about showing colors actually being implemented? Whole thing just seems like excuses and backpedaling

    On a bright note, this website is one of the best I ever seen. Don't know who develop it but well done
