Title: New Character Models in 5.1 ?
Post by: CptLima on April 05, 2019, 12:16:14 pm
So, what are the odds we'll see some new character models and/or alternate models in 5.1?

I've seen a few people apply here over the last couple years to be a character modeler. And I've seen some cool "unofficial" ones on servers, like Moonraker Elite?

Is this something we can possibly expect with 5.1 - or is it ruled out/future release TBD?

Still would love to see the following in-game:

Xenia (GE64 version, and alternates Casino formal wear, and the uniform she wears when her and Ourumov go in the Bunker in the film.)
Moonraker Elite
St. Petersburg Guard
Dr. Doak
Black Tuxedo/bowtie Bond
White Tux Bond w/ red lapel carnation
Jungle Commando w/ helmet option
Janus Special Forces (blue, black, or maroon beret)
Arctic Commando (the blue cammo guys from Bunker 2)
Civilian (1, 2, and 3)
Helicopter Pilot

I'd love to help make these... but I have 0 experience or knowledge, so the best I can do is post and hope someone else does / they're in the works for a future release!

Hope you like my wishlist and thanks for all you do to keep this game as amazing as it is.

The character models are certainly in need of some love. The existing ones are very dated, all the way back to the origins of the game in most cases. It's certainly on our radar as something that needs to be addressed and expanded upon.

I'd also love to see most of that list make an appearance at some point in time. Character art is certainly a long and complex process, so time frames are out of the question at this point in time. The best I can say is that's discussed amongst the team, and we know how much work our roster needs.

On a more serious note: You chose Civilian and not Siberian Special Forces? Shame.

Yeah, I threw civilian in there just to make it a dirty dozen lol... St. Petersburg Guard and white tuxedo Bond are the ones I'd actually play!

an easy way to put in a ton of characters would be to do what the origional goldeneye did, they took a random assortment of faces and  slapped them onto different bodies to make the "extra"characters seem a bit more flushed out

We allready did something like this with the Soldier. He has 3 different faces that are based on developers.

Ofc. we cannot do this with all characters, because you expect Bond to look like Bond and not have Mayday wear Mishkins Head.
Also there are limitations in the engine regarding memory usage, that prevent us from adding more content like new characters.
