    First, these hair styles are amazingly crafted. Nice work!

    Next, maybe I'm missing something, but people are calling one Cosmic Boy's - to me it looks like Lightning Lad's. I point this out because I've been hoping to get Cosmic Boy's hair style since this episode opened. His is shaved closer on the sides.

    IF, I'm right, can we put Cosmic Boy's on the To Do list?
    If, I'm wrong, maybe it's my screen graphics throwing me off. :)

    The feats make it mandatory for most(yes...even 10 point feats...most will try to complete). Remove them completely and make the spiffy material be the reward on it's own for those who want it and those who don't won't feel compelled to get it done just for the feat. They attach the feat for this reason, because they know most wouldn't bother getting the material otherwise.

    The hairstyles and Saturn Girl's aura are nice additions, but I would also like to see Evil Cosmic Boy's Red Ultimate aura added at some point as well. There are a bit too few genuinely good red auras out there at the moment, and those that we do have tend to be either no longer in circulation or posted on brokers for amounts that push the boundaries of credulity, or both.

    This explains why I constantly get tells asking what my aura is. Sorcery and fury, still the best aura in the game 10yrs later

    You are correct, that is Lightning Lad's hair.

    For Cosmic Boy - we would not be able to achieve the shaved head look because our hair needs some kind of geometry. The closet to a shaved look we have been able to get is like...the Fade (if it's still called that), and Grail's sideshave. The shaved hair is painted on CB's skin. It is possible for us to take his mohawk though, although the whole look wouldn't be the same as the NPCs.

    Totally understand it. Thanks for the response. I guess I'll have to settle for being totally awed by Static Shock's hairstyle ;)

    Umm meg a friend of mine using the Shocking Fade hair with Vampire Visage and it causes a very unsightly bald spot and as i dunno how to attach the image/screenshot via mobile to show you. Im also not sure if it considered a bug or not.

    These hairstyles make me wish that facial hair was its own area instead of being tied to hair.

    We got static and Lightning lads's(why does he go by Lad still he's clearly a grown *** man in this game lol. Lightning Lord would have kept the alliteration going while aging him up. Same for Saturn girl) hair. My brothas and sistas of DCUO , a long with Nubia's hair, we finally have some none generic "black" hairstyles. My character was tired of being bald with a beard although after 10 years of playing this game that look is getting closer and closer to reality for me.

    Uh So I bought the Chroma since I save up solar credits on some of my alts and I gotta say I'm really underwhelmed. The patterns are barely noticeable. The chroma is pretty much identical to the steel chroma. I guess its nice for people who don't have the original but its doesn't really do anything for me. I'm hoping the next batch has a cool looking chroma or material but something tells me its going to be that Trigon one which doesn't look very good imo :/

    We can get static hair but we couldn't get cybrog was up with that that's not fair don't take this the wrong way but we need more black male hairstyles

    Will we see emerald empress hair ? We already got her style might as well add her hairstyle.
  18. Megzilla Developer

    Cyborg's hair is painted onto his base mesh. All player hairstyles need some kind of geometry, and unfortunately our tech doesn't have a way to do fades or really really close shaves. The shortest hair length we can achieve is the shaved side of Grail's hair, for example. An option would be to paint a skin, but then that'd open up a different can of worms of every skin variant having painted on hair. I don't know if you remember old male hairstyles had like 10 different variants for one style to include all the facial hair options.. It's just not a good solution.

    I'm sorry, I wish I had better news. But believe me, I asked specifically for Cyborg's hair as well since it does look really sharp.

    We chose not to convert her hairstyle at this time, since it is similar to existing ones. It is absolutely stunning though.

    If it's not apparent, the difference is that the Steel Neon Chroma as shown makes 2 color slots the Steel "Chrome" Material, and one slot the glow. The Magnetic Neon Chroma has 3 distinctly different color channels. It's hard to tell from the still photos, but the glowing areas might also have an animated energy effect, like on some Enhanced Styles.
