I really like the tech shot.  I want more sci-fi things.

I downloaded the launcher a couple of days ago, and have been trying to get it going. It starts updating, but, at about 32% of the way done, I get this message where the red progress bar was:

Checksum invalid for http://192.187.108.146/xampp/content/Data/LauncherPayloads/WindowsPlayer/Valiance_Launcher_32bit_Data/sharedassets0.assets.0012.dat.

Is this being worked on? I was last in before it went open pre-alpha, and I'd reeeealy like to see it again.

Some time after I posted this, I found that my laptop seemed to be able to download the updates okay (more or less), while my desktop computer had the above problem. So, I learned to let my laptop download it, and I copied the folder to the desktop. But now, neither computer will cooperate.

To clarify: when it displays this message, it sometimes ends in /sharedassets0.assets.[4-digit number].dat, and sometimes, it's /resources.assets.[4-digit number].dat. The 4-digit number, at the end, changes with each try of the same download, and the 'sharedassets0' and 'resources' part will switch occasionally, but the number of files, and total size, to be downloaded doesn't. I tried removing the target folder and letting it re-create it, but that didn't work, either. Help?

(I'm using Vista on the desktop, and Win7 on the laptop. Both used to be able to download the updates okay, before the desktop became recalcitrant, so I don't think that the OS is the problem. And my VO zipfile is dated 1/27/15.)

Linux. Because a world without walls or fences won't need Windows or Gates.

Will pass this on to the team and see what they come up with. Thanks for letting us know.

Also, wanted to let people know our server is down for a combat overhaul (animations, ragdoll deaths, visual/sound effects, damage system). The female model and content updates are up next. Will announce when they are ready!

Here is a look at the upgraded female character model which will be in-game soon as well as some work-in-progress user interface designs for the enhancement system.

I was finally able to actually log on and play! (I have a new puter, and I think my old one just couldn't handle it.) Anyway, had to make a male (females not available yet) and here are some pics. It looks good so far!







Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

A look at some more work-in progress including user interface updates with Archetype icons and more hairstyles for the female character models!

Looks cool. Wondering what exactly mimetic weaponry could possibly mean?

You can form weapon constructs to aid yourself in battle, diversity is the key and you can create the right weapon for the job at a second's notice. Mimetic Weaponry attacks are as varied in effect as they are in appearance, giving you a great deal of utility.

It's not in the icon pic, but we'll have this kind of melee as an option too...



We have over 80 power sets at various stages of development currently.

Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking you'd somehow mimic the weapons of whatever opponent you were fighting or something.

I'm not in a position to download VO for a little while yet. The images I've seen of the characters, the legs are all impossibly long. For instance, the example dude from the previous post has legs that are nearly 1.5x the length of his torso (including head). That's so outside the scope of human growth as to look bad. Is it possible to reduce the legs to something that is more standard? People are generally about seven heads tall (using their own head for measuring, as heads come in different sizes - e.g. taller people also have bigger heads!). That dude is about 8.5-9 heads tall.
Bob Dole!! Bob Dole. Bob Dole! Bob Dole. Bob Dole. Bob Dole... Bob Dole... Bob... Dole...... Bob...
