ITT we post ideas for vanity items

Postby favorito » 17 Feb 2013, 05:25

Currently (as of Feb. 16, today) the following are in SVN:
badge
classy monocle
bionic monocle
felt tophat
metal tophat
horns
mustache

My ideas for now:
sunglasses
quinbeard
arrow in head
afro
blindfold
mohawk
cape
bowtie

Also, here's an example pic and a template if anyone wants to draw pretty pictures to illustrate what they want.

Also, the items you have equipped should fall off when you die like gibs. "Was shot so hard his mustache fell off".

Here's a mix of different items I thought of:

Goggles, like what one would use for skiiing, worn on top of your face.
A second style could have the goggles glow. Are glowing items possible?

Image

Bionic scope attachment, imagine like the rifle scope built into the right half of your face.
TELESCOPIC EYE MUST GLOW IF POSSIBLE. :cool: Also have a "lefty" style so it can be worn with the bionic monocle at the same time.

Alternate face armor to make your face look like that of an onslaught grunt. Might look interesting when worn with other face items.

Spiky bits. Spiky shoulder pads, spiky head armor, spiky knee pads, elbow pads, gloves/hand armor, etc. Everything is better with spiky bits.

Armor plating with a more "heavy" and "bulky" appearance to it. It should appear worn, as though it's seen a lot of wear and tear without being replaced.

Football helmet, shoulder pads, and jersey. Jersey is team-colored if possible.

Image

Hairstyles made out of metal: mohawk, afro, spikes, other "goofy" hairstyles.

Image

Some items wouldn't make sense if they fell off when you died. Maybe make it a variable attached to the item,
0 for stuck to character, 1 for falls off on death. I know that a shirt flying off you on death wouldn't make too much sense... but knocking someone's socks off would be hilarious.

Cat ears and a tail. That's all I could ever wish for. Perhaps furry paws as well.
Hats, Afros, wings and raptor feet. This game is showing progress indeed.

Monster claws for hands.
Monster claws for feet.
Thick somewhat-inflexible tail. (If it can flex at all since IDK if animations and such can go onto cosmetic items.)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Would look awesome with the (as of yet nothing but an idea) worn armor layers and/or spiked armor layers cosmetics and/or the onslaught grunt face-mask cosmetics.
Also would look comical with the (already existing) monocle and top hat cosmetics. Jekyll and Hyde, anyone?

A large, floppy and pink phallic object. (possibly attached to the head, if you can't put it in as a weapon)

And what about a trollface (yes, that's seriously a vectorised version of the trollface. On Open Clip Art.) mask (see attachments)?

Hmm, I love the idea of having all those funny things too, but maybe we should not get overboard with them. RE is after all not a comic like game (contrary to TF2 f.e.), and having all those funny things can seriously alter the way people behave in a game, to the point where other people might decide to stop playing due to too many people goofing around instead of playing the game.

I would also pay more attention to serious things to individualize the player, for example additional armour parts or, other helmets, etc.. The funny things would be more an addition for me.

Talking of useful items, what about a shield? Could be a real gameplay-changer. In the style of The Elder Scrolls series perhaps, to block melee attacks? Not sure if it is feasible over multiplayer though, especially given RE's sheer... speed.

Agreed, for example the trollface would be cool, though it would be rather distracting after a while.

This brings up another point: should vanity items change color in response to team colors or should they stay as they are?

On the converse side, let's reduce the bulky armor until we have ninjas, and then improve on that until we have Kamen Rider/Power Ranger costumes. :D

This could be difficult to implement, but I like the idea. This shield could use a particle effect and could be a kind of an energy shield 1+.

Please, guys, don't turn Red Eclipse into an RPG-like shooter. I like it the skill-based way it is. (I've heard Mek Arcade will have some more RPG elements, though not sure what that exactly means).

Something that could fit the game well, different styled backpacks with different looks, eg:
Propeller backpack
Jet Engine backpack
Anti-gravity backpack
etc

Could be cool if they were to also have particle effects or animation when you are in jetpack mode games.

Could a taunt be considered a vanity item? I would so very much like to do a backflip on top of someone's corpse. It's about 9001% cooler than T-bagging.

Also... eyepatch. Normal and bionic styles... even though a bionic style eyepatch would make no sense. :P

I vote someone creates new helmets/ armour parts. Also a couple jetpacks would be welcome!

Can we have laurel wreathes, like Augustus or [insert important figure in Classical Antiquity here]?

Maybe it would be held along the arm like a regular shield, or on the back, like the digimon Wargreymon.

So... Jetpack Joyride? :D
