    How many times do we have to unlock those costume transforms to make it account-wide?

    HOPEFULLY A BUG: The Data Panel transformation still has your character finish in the hunched-over animation like when you're in combat. Is this intended? If it is, it's a pretty ugly way to finish a fancy, neat-looking animation.

    These are other account wide transformations that I know of. Wish there was one for Power Stone, but I didn't see one.

    Perk = Transformation x # needed
    Purple
    Enchanted = Weapon Dance x 5
    Fear My Blade = Power Weapon x 5
    Open the Portal Jump in = Portal x 5
    Overwhelming Power = Overwhelming Power x 5

    Gold
    Going Digital = Data Panel x 3

    That's such a shame. Real lack of quality control going on.

    They need a group to come in and test thing before they go live, like a sort of committee. Maybe open to the public to test...like a server maybe.

    Maybe like a Public Test Server.

    This is not a bug. The ending animation is intended to go into this pose.​​

    Awesome, thanks you two! This was helpful.

    Putting things on this "Public Test Server" idea of yours, before they are released on live, seems like a good idea. I'd love to see this happen in CO :+1:

    I think we all wish there had been a different intention.

    On the positive side, these are beautiful transforms, and in general this is another solid costume set with lots of useful pieces. I wish all the boots in the last couple of years weren't shaped so weirdly, but I consider this one another success. Keep up the good work, costume guy(s)/girl(s)!

    Thank you for the response. However, this is still an exceptionally jarring, ugly animation to transition to after what looks like a pretty snazzy transformation. Very strange choice.

    Spy Hair is eveeerything! :love:
    Is it late for some feedback, tho?

    - I’d *kill* for a couple more variations of this hairstyle , using i.e Middleparted Medium/Long Elegant’s (and Mind Slayer here) as a base/reference. A little straighter and out of the face (the front part is a tad too narrow), just long enough to reach the shoulders, the slightest poof up front, maybe throw in a small hair clip on the top/back as a + accessory?

    - The portal transformation looks awesome, imagine visuals and animations like that for teleport devices? Someone suggested a merge w/ themed skins (ex. mysticism/pentagrams, tech and etc) a while ago, that would be really cool.


    Overall, great stuff! :+1:

    Also: please work a little bump-mapping onto this hairstyle (in lieu of some of the texture detail, perhaps)? This is one that’d *really* benefit from having more dimension to it, it’s a great style & design and totally deserves it! :blush:

    Coloring: add some hair strands in there (4th channel), to help with blending colors and creating softer nuances.

    I'm not sure where to post this, but now that the memory leaks have been (mostly?) patched up, could we get some of the textures that lost their transparency and glow channels restored?

    The Skyfox looked a lot nice when it had the wing-lights and hex-mesh screen, and not just a hex-textured sheet of tin and simple black wings.

    The original that I spent my filthy lucre to acquire:

    Versus the sad thing I got when you started downgrading textures and effects to compensate for the memory leaks:

    why did you take the second picture at night? o3o

    The first image is an arc news image, the second I shot during the day, but I have my brightness settings dialed down so that the night is actually dark, not just 'dim'. That doesn't affect the relevant elements of the image, the lack of yellow wing lights and the hex-mesh lacking the transparency. It does detract from the lack of contrast and sheen on the paint, but I would hope the old textures would be restored, so all the and-on changes would be reverted.

    I would love this to be fixed back to it's original look too :+1:

    This last patch fixed the mesh texture on the wing, but the wing lights and some of the subtle amber hues in the canopy are still lacking, but some progress is better than none!

    Thank you!
