It might be that the head itself is scaled too small. Everything else about the body seems fairly well-proportioned to itself. I also have not downloaded VO to see it in action, so these are just my comments from the screenshots. Screenshots show great promise, though. :)

I didn't notice the leg thing until you mentioned it. Maybe it's just the height of that particular character? I downloaded it a while back but unfortunately not far enough back that the servers were up. Looking forward to trying it when they return.

The character models, like everything, are going to be a work-in-progress for some time but your feedback is appreciated. Sliders will be available to change a lot of the things you are mentioning though. Thanks!

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....

Exaggerated/distorted physiques are part and parcel of super heroes/villains, at least that's what the great Samuel L Jackson said in the movie Unbreakable...?

Just realized VO was recently active. Any eta on server-up-edness?
Two-and-a-half months with no deliverable: have you guys created a tear in the agile-space-time continuum?  ;D

Just because it's common doesn't mean it's good (personal opinion). All of my regular characters in City were at minimum leg length and 1/2 to 3/4 "weight" - aka believable human physique. (I had several that didn't fit "believable", but it was on purpose and not just a 'style' choice).

Agreed that it would be bad if you couldn't have a normal looking human as a superhero/villain! I think it should be the default in character creation.

Just so long as we can make fatties. That was sorely missing in CoX ;D

Icons for our melee power sets... in Technicolor! :D

The main differences seem to be color, which is boring to me... Not to mention a bit of an issue for colorblind folks.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.

I'm working on sorting the Lore AMAs so that questions are easily found and linked: http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Lore_AMA/Sorted Tell me what you think!

My personal pet peeve about the female bodies was that the MINIMUM cup size was like a C, and the maximum was just porn-star ridiculous. If I wanted a tall, skinny female character, the minimum chest size seemed too far out of proportion.

Much agreed.

Also much agreed.

Somewhat along those lines, please consider a 'modesty' setting for female outfits. I knew lot's of women/mothers/wives that liked City of Heroes, but wouldn't play it (or let their kids play it), because you couldn't turn the hooch off... Just a generic head-toe canvas bag would do for starters!

Funny you should ask [about having created a tear in the agile-space-time continuum]...
So that's why my user stories have been so achy! I've alerted my boss about the catastrophe, and explained that it will delay some of my work.

Yay. Totally murphy's law for me though. Just as i come out of weeks of boredom and start enjoying one of my steam games they drop a free xcom weekend and valiance comes up for the first time since i installed  ;D


Edit: Got it installed and working. Played a while, chatted with some folks, equipped an enhancement and leveled up. Pretty cool so far, will check back in a few months.

Is it too late to make drops not require manual pickup? One of my pet peeves in any game.

I've tried downloading it several times, and haven't been able to get the whole 11.8MB that Firefox says is the file size. The download keeps cutting off, and WinRAR won't extract what part I do get, which tends to be about 4MB, more or less; on one attempt, only a little over 1MB came through. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Linux. Because a world without walls or fences won't need Windows or Gates.

We're looking into it. Any other information you can provide will help (operating system, errors, anti-virus programs you are running, etc.). Thanks!

Seems like we are hitting our bandwidth limit (you like us, you really like us) so if you have problems downloading the launcher please wait a bit then try again.

A browse box on the installer option page would be really nice.
