Fix Elven Bodies!

Unread post by KOPOJIbPAKOB » Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:40 pm

I know the devs are already aware, but this is a CATASTROPHE! All elven and drow characters got their bodies visibly shrinked, and they look completely different from the characters we initially created! I can't play my drow having her squeezed like a sponge 100% of the time, I request a rollback! (or, well, just play around with scales to make the models look like they did before)

The issue here is that players who created one of these races already adjusted the 'slider' for that character's girth/height. When the new script 'swaps out' their elf model body for the resized human body, the girth/height percentages still apply further to it making it worse than it otherwise should be.

Remember, though, the reason for this change is so elf races can utilise MP armours without the insane amount of work needed on modelling by the dev team. So you're gunna have to ask yourself if that exchange is worth it or not.

There was a bit of a problem with accessories of armors clipping with costumes, so I've adjusted the scales a little bit.

Tsidkenu's still right, though. The slider can be the reason for why some elven characters might look like stickmen/women.

I don't agree about the sliders because original, unmodified elven models at the character creation screen with sliders precisely in the middle are still much more slim than they should be. I don't argue that adding MP clothes to elves is awesome, all I ask is adjust the scales to make the elves look like they did before!

We already tweaked the scaling, it'll be applied in the next update.
