    Yeah, really digging the quality of these, well done. These have a lot of heart and personality, thanks. I might make my own interpretation of a rad-to-the-max lizard, I think that'd be fun, like what you made here:

    I DON'T ask for the alert became easier, I ask for the alert to become LESS GOSH DARN ANNOYING, the cutscenes spam makes me want to shoot myself when I farm Vigilante with multiply characters​​

    That's why I suggested before that cutscenes should be skippable, I suggested a voteskip function but I don't know if that's too much work, at least pressing space bar or escape would work.

    Those cutscenes are fairly tedious. It'd be nice if they were cut and you just made the sound from them play over the fight itself.

    Skippable cutscenes requires a bunch of coding n stuff... not sure if we're ever getting that ;-;

    Yeah I doubt Skippable instance cutscenes can even be archieved with the game's code

    Cutting the scene and having the dialogue playing on the background is more possible​​

  • Wait, so we got new items added to the Malvanum store but we didn't get the Circus Malvanum this update? When will that event actually take place again? Only been wanting a costume piece in that store for over a year now..

    The timer really should just go away. DPS check content is pretty much the lowest of the low hanging fruit in terms of challenging players as it is, but having it in pug-based content in particular is atrocious.​​

    Bear in mind that as far as quest completion goes, you only need to pass something like round 5 or 6 (I forget which). There's no particular reason the difficulty can't just ramp up ridiculously from there, such that nothing but a premade of optimized builds with top-end gear can clear the final stage.

    I dislike the timer because FM is (lore-wise) supposed to be entertainment, and a timer fail is just about the least entertaining way to end a gladiatorial fight. I'd probably tweak for something like:
    1. All fights have a respawn lockout (might need to be delayed so people defeated in a prior round have time to respawn).
    2. Late stage bosses have their offense boosted by enough that being defeated is a real risk.
    3. Rather than a hard timer, after a certain amount of time stuff starts happening that will eventually end the fight, such as stacking debuffs on everyone present.
    4. Round 9 should be replaced by something significant. Maybe a nemesis round.
    You may not need to pass ironclad/durotok but not doing so greatly reduces your chances of getting anything of value from the alert. The 1-3g is pitiful given how annoying this alert is. If they're going to lock costumes behind it, this alert can be made challenging with out time limits or making it impossible for pugs that might not be optimal.

    "Added Dual Armoring mods to the debugger. Currently we are testing the Armoring versions before making Enhancement versions. These mods combine two stats. These items will eventualy be added as regular mob drops and most likely be introduced into the mod packs found in Lockboxes."

    Instead of mob drops and lockbox rewards, why not add them to Bursts instead? Burst alerts have been in need of some form of decent incentive and this might be it. Likewise, the mod investigation nodes could stand to have these added to them.

    Since all the crap spawns in front of the entrance for the initial wave and inside the enemy entrance for the other 2, I suspect the cutscenes are also meant to reset player positions. Otherwise, you know everyone would just preemptively move to the spawn spots and intercept things instantly. They kind of already do with waves 2 and 3.

    If they could manage to randomize spawn locations all around the arena, there wouldn't be a need to abuse gameplay-interrupting cutscenes. Instead, the flow could be something like this:
    • Players behind barrier, waiting for everyone to zone in.
    • Barrier disappears and Tatas starts flapping his gums about glory unending with just the voiceovers--no cutscene. During this time, players can file in.
    • First round starts, first wave spawns in a random location. Assuming the player entrance is at 6:00, enemies could spawn in from anywhere between 8:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00. Waves 2 and 3 would also spawn in random locations. This makes spawn camping impossible, and that's a good thing.
    • Bosses would zone in from 12:00 (current enemy entrance).
    • No hard failure time limits, but as was suggested, after a certain time period, soft enrage mechanics could activate: Fire raining down on the entire arena, lightning strikes hitting random players, extra really tough enemies spawning in periodically, enemies gaining a wow-enrage-style damage strength boost, etc

    Yeah, they probably don't know how to do it in a multiplayer instance, since during that time, players are both immobilized and invulnerable. Pretty sure they probably don't want some players sitting in cutscenes while others are running around fighting stuff, possibly even triggering the next cutscene before the first one is done.

    They really should just go away. I don't mind cutscenes in single player stuff like questing, but in multiplayer "gogogo" settings, especially when the content is designed around being farmed, cutscenes bring literally nothing of value. 100% cancer.​​

    Just posting this here if you miss the other thread
    Kaizerin, I'm curious as to why you remove the Detail > None option from the Animal Pack. Such an option gave the head a clean look. Here one without the option and one with the None Option

    Such little detail can effect the entire character. If this was a "bug", can you please place the option back?

    Added Firewing's tights (Partial Mask, Chest, Legs) as a rare reward from Forum Malvanum.
    ​​

    The Firewing Tights are a nice addition.......

    However, there are some color bleed problems with the set. If you use a lighter color in the first channel than in the second channel, the first color bleeds over (see the yellow dots). This happens on both male and female models.....

    Suggestion: Please clean up the Firewing Chest and Firewing Legs Tights to remove the color bleed from the first color channel into the second and third color channels

    So let me get this straight… It's a completely identical design, but because it's a partial mask we are unable to use the facial details… A+ everyone

    could facial details be added to the partial mask category?

    also, please restore the 'none' detail option on the animal pack set. I do not want craggy faced critters, I want smooth faced animal toons.
