I am a bit torn over this matter. Part of me wants a bit more options on customizing characters and planes (and yes, I think a palette swap will do nicely.); another part of me agrees with Axel, I'm sure there are things that need polishing more than the graphics.

I just hope I can help.

So, I think the devs should probably put minimal time into this themselves. However, there are clearly several of us willing to help out in making the art, and then the devs just have to add it in. Which seems like a good use of time all around. =P

Having an "art dev" again may actually be a good idea, for times when y'all need some new artwork for the game.

Question - if I keep doing the color-shifts, are they likely to get put in? I'm quite willing to, I just don't want to put the time in (given how many there are to do) if they'll just sit around and get covered with dust and all that.

(Otherwise I'd still take requests, but not straight do all of them.)

At this time, we can promise nothing I am afraid.

I'm just gonna come out here and say: I bet the people who don't come to the forums are more likely to want plane repaintings than this sampling would indicate.

Also, I know *I* would like to have the option to have TWO colors on my clothes or plane. Simple pallet swap fails when compared to zone coloration systems.

So when a person would join the Red Faction, could they get semi-automatic weapons added into their avatars?

The weapons are actually already there, you just can't see them because they're in your hands.

I agree that there should be about four color selections for every species to allow more variety.

Also here I post a recoloring of Prince Roy as a suggestion for an alternate giraffe palette.

Plane paintjobs would be nice... however, u might want to restrict it to preset desisgns or shaps on the plane because of the risks of obscene words and the such.

Yeah. I was thinking more like being able to select, for example, Wings as one colour, fusilage as one colour, trim/details as one colour, etc. Which should hopefully make it a little simpler?

I do wonder how possible it would be to have preset decals that people could choose to add to their plane? Like the Skyrates skull for example on the side of the nose?

When we "veiw planes" in the map mode, it would be neat if we could see some coloration which would enhance gameplay. If the factions/INF game remain important, for example, it would be neat to visualize a wave of red planes headed to a blue flagged skyland in a bid for INF takeover. Or in the core, you'd see a bunch of tiny yellows buzzing about. :yellow:

Many games have the ability to customize yourself. Ours is currently limited in that field.

If you could have one small bit of customization, what would it be?

Craft Customization?
Character Customization?
Something else?

How much could you be happy with? Would just a palette shift suffice?


I'd like to be able to paint my plane and pick/color different clothes.

I demand, for both my avatar and my plane, a full Kisekae Set System to play dress up with. I need to be able to choose my wardrobe, hairstyle, accessories, weapons, tattoos, pets, decals, paint jobs, racing stripes, awesome flames, etc. And if they displease me, I must be able to change them again and again, without a clunky "write to the devs" interface.

But writing to the devs is one of your favorite things! Else, how do I explain this tall stack of logistical billets-doux on my desk?
