    I've got a few. Most of my good ones are gold-locked, though, and I unsubbed until the servers get sorted. So, as a result, I'm mostly stuck with comic pages. Sorry.


    Chernobyl.

    Shockwave. Yes, that's a shield. The only screenshot I have of this costume is HUGE. Figured I wouldn't inflict that on y'all until I get over my laziness and edit it.

    Quasar.

    The multifaran chitikku is amazing.

    Also, I found my action shot of chernobyl. A bit more how she tends to look, since the comic page doesn't really do her justice.

    Since I only play one character, I've made plenty of costumes to compensate (I have at least 10, lol).

    Those are the tesla bracers. They are available in the Z store under the Tesla Coil costume set for 475 Z.

    So I was going through my endless costume saves and found this one I made for Presidents Day. I had a good chuckle from it.

    Hey there.

    Ive made a few characters and i love to make costumes/characters. Actuall i played the game now over 1 year full (old account, could not recover - thx to perfect world) and startet now with a new gold-account.

    Now i have this one out of 6 as best costume at the moment:
    costumedasfiesealiennon.jpg


    You can see that this i clearly inspired by Altair (Assassins Creed) while i tryed to maintain my own scheme a bit with bright-white and a bit darker red.

    Great costumes and designs, all! I'm just gobsmacked by the creativity I see. Well - I guess I should add my own paltry efforts here as well.

    Cyberman 8 is a redo of a COH character - and came out the other end of the translation process remarkably like his old self! If anything, he's even more like a speedster fighter here than in COH. He just pinballs around the battlefield! The only caveat to his outfit is that I wish that jaunty "Swept V" helmet ornament had a proper counterpart in CO. But I think the compromise has worked well.

    One thing I like to do is alternate costumes. Some characters never have more than a couple of alt costumes, while others have up to a dozen or more. But I want them to make sense.

    C8 is kind of in the middle territory. He's an android who can shapeshift. And he can disguise himself as an ordinary human. But he can also change his "combat body" to suit the situation. His alt costumes in-game are usually some form of civilian/secret ID look.

    IasPhCq.png

    In this scene at the start of "Resistance" I had him change into a formal suit look, since that scene it seemed appropriate. (Changing quickly to his normal appearance as he went through the gate).

    sZIcZ5R.png

    There are a few that are just concepts or homages waiting for an excuse...

    vSAm2vk.png
    If there's ever a "Tron" inspired cyberworld we can visit, C8 is ready. :P

    Here's a costume that definitely falls into the "functional" category.

    ZloR8Wf.png

    (No - he doesn't need to breathe, because he's an android. But the simpler faceplate helps cut down on problems with high pressures at depths. The backpack isn't for Air - it's a water jet for speed and a buoyancy stabilizer.)

    And although I haven't yet had a chance to use him yet, I did design for the Nemesis system... er...

    Nemesis.

    Only because most people are too lazy (or don't care enough) to look into the options available - including two different varieties of age lines!

    Not to get into a serious debate here, because I do see your point and agree with it (in fact, I'll be posting a character shortly that proves it) but I would say that though the options exist in CO to create unique faces and MUCH better looking ones than the standard defaults, that there's a learning curve to it that simply wasn't necessary with COH. In COH you wanted a different face, you simply picked one. And then you could tweak the sliders to customize it to taste.

    What I REALLY miss in CO are standard face templates that the CC used to have and that we no longer do! Couple that with the stupid lock-down on available parts that new players are subjected to and that's why you get so many cookie cutters appearing in Rencen. Whereas often in COH - you watched the front steps of Atlas Park, you might see somebody come through with an utterly fantastic looking character who was nevertheless a first time player.

    Only players who have been playing for some length of time in this game will have figured out how to make good faces and tweak the body sliders. Sadly, the Devs made the learning curve on costume creation in this game so steep that new players are often completely unaware they even have options. Whereas in COH, it was plain from the start.

    TL;DR version: I agree with you to a point, but wish we had some standardized options such as in COH to fall back on for new players.

    Speaking of - here's the very first character I ever made in CO - Stalnoy Volk. Created originally because -

    a) CO does do power armor weapons and powers better and closer to theme than COH

    and -

    b) Those issues with face sliders and other weirdness? I didn't have to worry about them because of the full helmet! I could be lazy and play the game while I figured it out! :D

    Anyway - Stalnoy Volk is a character who I first made in COH, but ironically is based off of a character from Champions printed lore (points to any who can find the reference). I made him YEARS before CO came out. And then ironically made him again in this game. And thus the circle is complete...

    This was his first armor here in the game. I was going for a sort of "Russian Aerospace/Utilitarian" look since the character is Russian after all.

    4bEcEtg.png


    After a few months of off and on play, when I got him the "Chest Beam" power, I figured I needed to change his look, since it didn't make sense for there to be something firing from no visible port. And yeah - Iron Man 2 had recently come out and he had a touch of War Machine in this second version. ^_^

    wvHD5i4.png

    Shortly after that, I made a "Heavy Armor" version for his Tank build stance. Not as aerodynamically nimble in concept, but able to withstand more incoming fire.

    nv6ZIXn.png

    Mikhael's weak point is that he is a paraplegic and can't walk without the suit or some other frame hooked up to him. Someday perhaps he'll have surgery to correct that. In the meantime, here's his work clothes and partial frame he uses when he's tinkering.

    Speaking of tinkering, here's a testing rig. Not meant for combat. This is for testing flight systems and weapons load-out and balance.

    Stalnoy_Volk_03.jpg


    Yeah - I'll fully admit - Mikhael kinda looks like a cross between Tony Stark and Original flavor Nick Fury. Heh.

    UjJmYg4.png

    I use the "aggressive" eyebrows, "stern" and "pale and aged" face details plus the grey streaks in his hair for a subtle middle-aged look. This guy's been around for longer than your average teenager in tights.

    The most recent version of his armor takes advantage of some more "bling" that dropped for me in various alerts. This - like the Heavy Armor - is linked to a specific Build/Stance. In this case - the Ranged Damage slot. This armor is for artillery support more than in-your-face slugfests.

    Y41gjMy.png

    That's pretty much it for Stalnoy. Next post I may post some Nemesis's.

    You need to spend a bit more time exploring the face slider options in the tailor and mixing them up with the different mood options. You'll be amazed at the different types of faces you can have using these.

    Personally, I found the different faces in CoH very limiting and ugly.
