    Iconic Personalities (aka Downloadable Modular Personalities)

    this is an old post of mine from summer 2012 but i've fleshed it out further since then.

    the short version is; i'd like to see a personalities section added to the style menu to manage purchased personalities. in addition to that i'd like to see new personalities made based on our favourite iconic characters which we can then use with our original characters.

    for more details, keep reading. ;)

    Goals for the Request
    1. add more variety and customization options for characters
    2. add more immersion options
    3. add another source of non-gameplay effecting revenue to the marketplace
    4. add a system to use and manage purchased personalities (currently you must pay $10 every time you want to switch your personality even if you're switching back to one you've paid for already -- you pay twice!).
    character animation sets (aka personalities) can be really really labour intensive. a typical character animation set has hundreds of animation segments for different game functions. typically animation segments can take anywhere from 15mins - hours to perfect and get just right. however, replacing a few key animation segments can be done very easily with minimal effort and can really add depth, communicate personality and individuality to a character. replacing the suggested segments below can be done in about 5-15mins per animation segment very easily!

    • idle -- the animation played while your character is standing around
    • melee idle -- the animation played while your character is standing around with enemies in range
    • hover -- the animation played while stationary with flight on.
    • fly -- the animation played while your character is moving with flight on.
    if these animation sets were inspired by iconic characters they could be lucrative mini transactions at $2.50 - $5.00 each. i imagined the sets could look something this (actually i created a set for each of the 3 main existing personalities just to demonstrate how much different it could look on your character in game):

    man of steel

    world's greatest detective

    amazon princess

    i did a mockup to illustrate how the personalities manager could integrate into the style menu UI and it could look something like this:

    I hope they are working on something similar now or that they see this great idea. I would pay $10 for 1 of these and I know other people who would too.

    thanks guys. can't you just imagine your character doing some of these? i know i can. desperately. lol

    have you ever seen a group of fliers hovering around in the sky -- and they're all in the exact same pose. it's really silly to see. sigh. this would allow us to all look awesome and not generic :)

    PS thanks to the MOD who fixed my last WonderWoman image (it is now correctly showing the hovers) -- must pay more attn next time. :O

    I wish to be able to like your post infinitelly, i noticied that our current persona schemes are a little mixed, the female flirty have the comical dance for exemple , also why the joker have the female flirt stance?
