Character creation powers preview question
« on: April 18, 2017, 01:53:36 AM »
Excuse me if this is the wrong place for a thread like this, but a question occurred to me while going through a cycle of obsession with CoX. When you're creating a character, or recoloring the powers in the tailor, what is the client referencing to produce the preview of targeted attacks? Is there an invisible target practice dummy? Is the client playing the animation with a set distance listed for the end point of the lightning bolt / fireball/ melee attack? Sort of seems like the former, because previewing Petrifying Gaze showed a vaguely human sized reaction sway. Idle curiosity, like one of the questions I asked when PC first came out. Let me also just throw my thanks for what PC is already out there :)

I was curious about the same thing.  Maybe its something restricted to the character and tailor editing.  Would be nice to have visible powers again.  One thing at a time though.

I would so much love to have weapon's animations again, even thought there's nothing to attack.

And if we had a way to get weapons to persist after they appear?  That would be Awesome !

I have to admit, something like this would be fantastic!
