Hello, i have not got my beta key and i am not sure about people who have bring this up before but i think that Forsaken World could really use a more in depth character creation like the first game they did. I mean the very unique thing about PWE is that they have one of the best character creation system for one of the game and i wonder why not they put it to their other game.

    why not they put it to their other game.

    Because,

    They want each game to be different from the others?

    Although I do agree customization is always nice, bonus customization will likely be thrown into the Cash shop to earn some money

    There always is ;D. All I have to say is as long as the hair and faces don't look stupid it's all good. Or at least that's the minimum I'd ask from them.

    if they applied pwi's custimization to everyone of there games then it would be one of the companies trade marks which i seriously think everyone one of there games needs pwi's custimization if it hasent been done yet

    No. It has been discussed many times.
    Increase the customization mean a lot of lag like hell.

    Each client do HAVE TO load EVERY single char customizations.

    Make them limited mean less lag in the wrost populated situations.

    PWI does may have a good char customization engine but does fail hard on the game because it does have a lag as hell.

    Add that more the customizations more are the fashon items (that i basically like but... i do play to "play the game and it's fetuares" not to shown the others how i wear fashon items..) more will be the lag, loading time and so on.

    You can suggest to give more hair styles, more tatoos or add scars but edit more the char mean all the above situations i said

    That's not necessarily true, size in particular is the one that cases actual problems most customizations are just different textures. In any case if the models quality is similar or lower there isn't gonna be lag -.-

    Go make a mod or something and maybe you'll get it, if different size models of the same quality caused problems then stonemen and the dwarfs and the rest of the classes wold already cause severe lag. Loading textures are usually done quite quickly. Shaders and effects are what cause LONG waits.

    Your argument is mislead sir. Now allow me to introduce you to my dear cat

    Don't waste your time getting angry either it only entertains me.

    FAIL!

    Even in PWI you can turn off customizations.

    If you don't like em, and don't want the "lag" they make, turn them off. Simple.

    Fail warriors have shown up. They fail just by appearing.

    Is that supposed to be your argument? What a waste of a post.

    At least, adding maybe 3 haircuts/face/make up per race will be a good thing.

    I don't like massive customisation like aion or Perfect world cause it leads to some weird results and some lag.

    But adding 3 haircuts/face/make up more per race could be great ! :p

    the customization is not realy the problem for lag...
    look at games like champions online or city of heroes/villains...
    i played them and i had no lag... and the customization is good as pwi... when not even better

    I agree with adding all the customization. That was a great part of PWI, being able to make your character look or be whatever you wanted it to, and always having the option to completely change it later on. HONESTLY, since this is still a cash shop game, makeover scrolls had to have made them a ton of money. I know a few friends that would get a makeover over the stupidest things, like their arms were too thick in comparison to their legs..or the tint of their eye shadow that they thought made them look cool really only made them look absurd.. then a week later they'd completely change their look again, and then refine it a day later. It had to have been one of the biggest money makers. I also loved how you could make your character look like whatever you wanted it to. On Lost City I saw someone that looked like a frog, someone that looked like Shrek, and many many more.. a few people that were obese and squishy.. It's a great feature of the game, and should be added as a trade mark IMO. Forsaken World is already different enough from PWI, so adding great customization, which most everyone loves about PWI, would only add to the enjoyment. I mean the only reason I even found PWI was because my friend saw a video of the customization and decided we should check it out..

    I also like someone else's idea of adding facial features. We move our hands and bodies around if we're afk or standing for too long.. so why don't we blink or smile?

    so instead I just started to laugh.

    Amen, characters are too vanilla. PW had better options for character creation.

    No. It's not going to create any more lag.

    Next time you open your mouth, you might want to read a little bit about the subject in-hand.

    You got it about half right.

    Go make a mod or something and maybe you'll get it, if different size models of the same quality caused problems then stonemen and the dwarfs and the rest of the classes wold already cause severe lag.

    This one is correct. :)

    I like lag. It reminds me of the old days, when I had to play turn-based RPGs that I had to load off of floppy discs.
    PW has an insane amount of personalization options. It's easy to have fewer options than that and still have more options than FW supposedly has.
    It's still CB, who knows what kinds of changes will happen during the next year.

    I've played perfect world for a while now, I have been browsing for a second game to play- And since playing perfect world a lot of the other free mmorpgs really lack in graphics and character creations.

    It seems that there is a standard "body size/style" as well, A little more choice on that would be great. Im sure these updates are possible to add at a later time? or add extra things you can get to change your appearance.

    With new additions to perfect-world like the expansion genesis maybe they can still add things. This game is still on the beta right? Are changes made once the beta testing is over?

    Bryan was right actually people, the more customisation available, the more server lag people will get.

    Also the reason PWI had such good customisation, while FW is more standard, is because PWE got sued for the PWI character engine, and making their own character engine to that level for FW would take a lot of time and rescources, and it isnt necessary.
