    Dec, could you do a big favor? If you have Adam in CO, can I see a side by side of both?

    Be glad to, although it'll take a few days. Currently hampered by a shut-off internet at home (until a week from Friday's paycheck) and only able to post from work. I have the next couple of days off, so when I come back Friday night, I can haul something here on a floppy (yes, they still exist, if you can find a computer with a drive for it :tongue:). In the meantime, here's CO Adam, at least.

    BTW, Adam is my CO main. I didn't have him in CoX. That pic was "aftermarket", as it were, using the Icon system some of the players developed after the game shut down.

    Actually, what you've done is good enough for me. :)

    I just wanted to compare the two, anyway.

    To me, they both look just fine. I couldn't say one graphical look is superior to the other.

    Thanks much! :)

    Oh, I think it's very much a "personal preference" thing. I, personally, cannot stand the "default" look here at CO, but as you can see, there's enough customization available to fix that, at least to my eyes. I did sit down and remake all my characters in CoX mode just for giggles, and it really points out how much more customization is available here. The "two colors only" restriction at CoX alone...

    I still has City of installed, too. Haven't done anything with the Titan Icon yet, though. Too askeered I'll screw something up and not be able to do anything with it at all.

    Unless you're on a Mac, "installing" Icon is literally three steps:

    1- Download Icon.
    2- Extract Icon to your CoH directory. It doesn't overwrite anything.
    2b- Create a shortcut on your desktop to Icon, if you want to.
    3- Run Icon from the CoH directory or the shortcut.

    You can't break anything.

    somebody explain to me what this icon thing is? something that allows you to play CoX?
  • flamingbunnymanflamingbunnyman Posts: 2,035 Arc User
    edited July 2013
    It lets you play with CoX's costume creator, and walk around in the CoX zones. You can't actually play the game; there's no NPCs and no powers system in it.

    It's named after Icon the superhero clothing store in the CoX world, because originally, it was just the costume creator.

    Possibly. Still buggy though. Atleast the music and sound effects play. It makes it creepy being alone though. Reptile still enjoys the docks of Port Oakes.

    Isn't radiation the primary source of many/most super powers? Without Radiation, how would we make our spiders radio-active? I think we need many more kinds of things to become radio-active. Goats, chickens, dogs, mud...

    Is this power set supposed to do something new and synergize well with others? Otherwise I couldn't care less. If I want to simulate energy blast powers I can choose already well made powers that works with the rest of the game.

    Try using the /stuck or /unstuck command on that character.

    If that doesn't work, try the /D'OH! command.

    Oh. At first glance, the cap, at least to me, looked as if "the hero" somehow got trapped outside of the playable area. This happened to one of my heroes once a very long time ago in Downtown Mil City. Did not know about the /unstuck command, so I circled around the entire city trying to find any gap. Never found one.

    Tried flying as high as the instance would let me and actually "landed" ON the invisible "dome." Eventually, I quit the game and waited long enough so that it would reset with my hero back inside that invisible barrier.

    So, again, that is what I thought I saw here. As Homer Simpson says, "D'OH!"
