When you run it has to really feel like running. Not sure how you view 2-3x speed, yet something that's simply 'twice as fast' as the running speed we currently have that's more like fast walking. It's
making me curse with how slow it is.
Well, once the player models are fully working we have to adjust the run speed anyway I'm sure we will find an appropriate run speed in the medium run.
And I love that we now will no longer look like crash test dummies
Hehe, that's true
Question: it appears that there is a miners helmet with mounted light on one model? Is that a working lamp? (silly question, I'm sure it is, but gotta ask).
Yes, it's a working lamp. It will be a replacement for the current "L" debug light (which will be hopefully removed soon [although it will still be available in creative mode]), so you don't have to hold a lamp in your hands anymore
Question: will we have any magic casters in game, or we it be strictly true to RL? I don't really expect it, just curious. Medieval areas had their soothsayers and such, while not true magic casters they had their 'auras'. And kings had their advisers.
Well, I'm not sure if there will be magic casters in the game... monsters are planned for the hell and dungeons, maybe there might be some magical stuff or magic casters then. Can't say for sure
Can i still play as the chubby bald guy? you know, for nostalgias sake?
Hehe, unfortunately that's not possible^^ Maybe we re-rig the old character when we have a lot of spare time, just for fun, but right now we have no plans for that. But maybe there will be other ways to pay homage to the bald guy
Not sure if you're focusing too heavily on hair styles or not, but for when you do here's some hair styles you could look into for added customization for the female side
Actually we were more focusing on different clothes than on hair styles There won't be so many different hair styles in the initial release, but more hair styles (and more clothes) will be dded in the future.
We also have to find a convenient way to add new hair styles etc. to the game via the API.
I requested a new stone statue instead. I hope he follows through
That's definitely coming
will we have the option to wear various forms of glasses?
Oh yes, there will be at least a few glasses. Once the player models are available, we are open for suggestions about new clothes, hair styles, glasses, hats, suits etc (especially glasses and hats don't need rigging, so they're easy to create).
