    Sooo what happened to Brad?
    I usually make a homage toon for the guy who has moved on.
    Is it time for Breaking Brad to bust into the tutorial?
    I wonder what he will look like.

    I know you said that the Dev team were not archaeologists, but some of us are.

    Please look at this thread featuring unused CO assets already in the code, but not in game:

    As sekimen said, most of the common questions have already been fielded. So I'm going to try to ask one that I don't think has been mentioned.

    Is it possible to allow players to switch characters without logging off? The feature is available in STO and NW. Is there something that keeps it from being implemented in CO?

    I'd love more facial expressions and stances.

    Too many of the human characters just stare blankly.

    Actually, fun thing, it IS currently in CO. But, it's clearance level is locked to Admins only.


    Also, I wonna ask about Stances too. Can we have the 'Static' stances in the tailor, as a stance option?

    Hi, thanks for airing questions, I've got a few to add to the mix?

    1.) Are we ever going to get the patriot themed grav bike shown on the reloaded artwork? Its red, white, and blue; but has never been shown beyond concept art.

    2.) Could we get some new travel powers? I know vehicles are the hip new thing, but I personally like having unique travel powers for my characters. Travel powered that were discussed but never implimented include: Boulder Dash (Super speed) Electric Speed (Superspeed), and Shadow Teleport (Darkness themed teleport) Could we get some of these in the coming months?

    3.) Could we get a weapons pack added to the drifter store, along with the other legacy items? I know a lot of people who would like to have some of the now gone weapon skins.

    A c-store pack of the old pieces would be great. hell, 2 or 3 would be fine too. I'd drop 5 bucks just for the harquebus, since I probably have everything else.

    A stance pack. Please and thank you. :)

    These are only a few that I can remember, though the Fighting Dojo, Magic Lantern Bookstore, And Mutations Store are all gone (for now). Hopefully this post will get others to know of these locations and get rp'ers to start using them as alternatives for Club Caprice/Hideouts. Once people start using these locations more often, Cryptic will probably take notice and be willing to add even more social locations for rp'ers.

    Edited to sound less like a whine post, since that was not my intention.

    Hello and thank you for talking to the community.

    My only simple request is that bear heads are allowed to wear ushankas. Everything else I would have asked seems to already have been answered.

    Don't Forget expansion for Bear Hands and Bear Paws for Shirts Throusers
    the Bear parts are so Limited compared to other bestial parts for some Stupid Reason :confused:

    I CAN'T use Bear Paws for Throusers, I'm stucked on using Shorts for my Bear :frown:

    Also haircut available for Beast heads would be nice... I have seen people having Hair on their beasts, they told me that there was a Glitch on the PST that allowed them to used Hair Styles and they copy their costume to LIVE!

    Now... If DEVs could just turn this Glitch into a Feature! I would be very happy (my (were)BEAR DUDE needs the AFRO!!!)
    Be smart and turn this GLitch into a Feature like you did with the Nighthawk Hood ;)

    Are we still throwing suggestions at the new Devs?

    If so...

    I has threads...

    Cosmic Alert Events

    The main thrust here is that we need to be able to fight the Cosmics.

    Telosaurus and Quijibo in particular as these are hoarded by a small group of people who somehow knew to the second when they will spawn and make sure no one else will ever get to fight them.

    This should not be allowed to continue...So, Let's rumble with the darn things!

    SG Bases and Monetizing

    Thundrax's SG Base thread is actually much better than mine but I focus on how to get Cryptic to justify paying for it since the days of making content for the sake of building up the game are pretty well over.


    And finally..

    Hideouts.

    We'd love to have moar of course but.. there's this dangling part..

    There are extra rooms almost finished for the Hideouts. They are so close to being done they're actually in the Hideouts already and if you're clever you can see them or even break in.

    So, finish them up and give them to us.

    Oh I know it'll be more like sell them but we sure waited long enough, they *** well better be cheap
