    LOVE LOVE LOVE all these ideas, especially Bioshrike's military ones. But I feel they're missing a couple. In addition I'd love to see;

    /e_attention

    Where your character stands up straight, still, faces forward, their feet are together at the heels and their hands are clasped at their sides. They remain stationary until a movement key is pressed. Position of attention, as seen;
    image3489.jpg

    Then you have; /e_knifehand

    Your character faces his/her target, extends an arm out as though pointing to them, but rather than pointing with one finger, their fingers are all lined up with each other and their hand is turned at the wrist, making a 'knife' to point with, and they appear to yell at their target. Reference;
    120809-N-CD297-029.jpg


    Target audience; anyone with military characters, particularly Marines or Army themed
    Possible costume pieces to go with it; CAMPAIGN HATS! (male and female)

    Male: greer.jpg

    Female: Corbis-42-26413202.jpg?size=67&uid=c8292e48-d785-47e4-b133-aabe1268f34a

    And a bunch of military insignia for sleeves and such from the different branches as arm accessories. I've seen a ton of military-themed characters in my time in game. I think all those emotes and insignia/hats combined could be one hell of a cool pack.

    /e wallrest

    Player is posed as if leaning casually against a wall, arms crossed with one leg bent with the foot against the wall behind them.

    Useful for RP when you don't just want to stand around.

    Since Sitchair and Sitheroic have been broken since 2009, letting
    us at least pretend to lean against a wall would be better than knees deep in concrete.
    In theory.

    Some sort of Super Sentai Powerup Posing would be neat. And a Magical Girl Transformation version too.

    Costume Change Emotes

    Too start off easy
    Roinesh_CC - like the Roin'esh do when they change

    For others
    Spin_CC - Like some famous amazon princess does
    Digital_CC - Become wireframe which is erased and redrawn to the wireframe of the next costume before reverting (or something like a 80's digital superhero does when he creates his vehicles.
    Majokko_CC - Turn a solid color with a anime dancing spin and flashy effects ending in a pose with the new costume (like sailor suited heroes do in Japan though not as long
    Sentai_CC - Pose before flashy transformation (there are hundreds to choose from in anime)

    Seriously CC transformations would probably be the best selling on any emote packs that could be made available.

    Ok, I know this game isn't City of..., but since they were both Cryptic games, and we've seen that certain aspects are similar, maybe they could dust off a few of the old classics from CoX.

    I suppose the next step would be going through the suggestions and putting together emotes that would fit a theme or a pack. Collate everything in a standard format with name, description etc.

    Ideas for Pack combinations: Using Accessories (phones, cameras, flashlights etc), Military (salutes, stances etc), Dance (thriller, gangnam etc), Prone (Death Emotes, Bed/Sleep Emotes etc), Hand Signals (waves of various kinds)

    Any which are not fully described go back to original poster asking for perhaps an image example.

    If someone has access to modelling or animation software perhaps they could compile a test reel for each pack to give Cryptic North animators something to work from.

    Apologies for double post here, but I had to add this:

    name: Tai Chi

    Description: Perform Tai Chi Movements Full animation plus static pose emotes (see image & video for example)

    th_TaiChi1_zps33cd8a22.jpg

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhyUL0_ITus
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V58I502J86M

    I think this one would be a big seller. Especially if as well as the full animation loop version, they included specific poses which would be utilised by any martial arts character for screenshots etc. E.g Poses 10, 46, 67, 76, 116, 143, 144, 165 and 169 all stand out to me as useful poses.
