    Hey Guys,
    We have created an official Em.8er Twitch channel located here: https://go.twitch.tv/em8ermpw

    Please add this channel. It's a little bare bones since we opened it today, but we will fill it with banners and imagery. Modeling streams for Em.8er done by me will run through this channel, my channel, and youtube simultaneously so you will be able to tune in however is easiest for you!

    Happy Friday everyone!

    We have some more work in progress shots of the Tsi-Hu humanoid. This time we are focusing on the head and face and upper body. We wanted to create that "alien beast yet intelligent" look we've all been discussing with the community.

    The "hair" on the Tsi-Hu humanoid are meant to mimic the hair on the beast form that they shapeshift into. Right now we are modeling the hair, but if we get time, we want to explore using a shader to create moving, morphing shapes of spikes like ferrofluid.

    Also this weekend, JoeSolo will be streaming the BEAST mode modeling. @HeineSnow kindly provided the base model that we are scultpting into its final form.

    Joe has a new microphone that he swears sounds "really good" so our past audio issues should be history. The stream is on Sunday, 6PM-8PM! This time he will be dual streaming it to his personal channel as well as the new, official Em-8ER Twitch Channel.

    To catch Joe this Sunday, 6-8pm, find us on Twitch here: https://go.twitch.tv/em8ermpw

    You can also watch Joe via his personal Youtube if that's better for you: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSieVxJhO1EbiRVn3XfYerA

    See you on Sunday!
     
  6. Thread: Final Founder credit stats available in General Ember Discussion

    TL;DR: And the final value of ingame credit given away is ...
    $239,860 !!!

    After being asked for hard numbers about founder credit program and late comers being confused whether it's still running or not, I've had work cut out for me. Goal was to transform Firefall founder credit page to anything better than 404 error. Priority was to inform users it's no longer available and to explain what it was about, what was offered and why it was discontinued. And as cherry on top display all the relevant statistics.

    It was great experience to create the program, which I believe ran without any major incidents and resisted any abuse attempts (I know you've tried, I'd too :D).

    The model shown is the medium frame. Scout frames would be made out of the light frame.

    Alright! We took a break from texturing the humans to start working on the shape-shifting Tsi-Hu. These aliens have 2 forms: a humanoid form for ranged combat, armed with rifles and grappling hooks, and a beast form for hand to hand combat.

    Joe will be streaming the beast modeling process on Sunday here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSieVxJhO1EbiRVn3XfYerA

    [UPDATE: Stream is Sunday 6pm to 8pm PST!]

    Meanwhile, Alejandro has put about 5 hours into this VERY rough sculpt of the Tsi-Hu humanoid. Check out this rough WIP!

    After the Tsi-Hu are modeled, we only need the guns and the Kaiju made and we are set for all the character art assets for the playable mockup!

    Thanks for reading!

  34. Thread: Fatigue for this Genre before Em8er is released? in General Ember Discussion

    The bike is no faster than the Omniframe's skim mode, and in fact is slower to transition in and out of. From a power perspective it's not any better than skimming.

    Everyone could craft a bike in Firefall Beta. I was not there on release. During Beta other bike types were purely cosmetic skins. So again, where is the power being sold?

    Anthem is 4 player instanced open world. Period. http://www.firstpost.com/tech/gamin...-with-jetpacks-and-an-open-world-3725161.html

    We're not trying to change the world or take on AAA games in terms of sales. We want a fun wargame with enough of a userbase to keep it updated and going. It would be silly to expect us to compete with games costing $100 M to make and another 100M to market.

    Well Em-8ER is not about doing missions or quests. Its a persistent wargame with personal mechs vs an invading army with their Kaiju beasts.

    Also, Anthem and Destiny 2 are instanced small squad games. Even Warframe open word is limited to just your squad. Em-8ER allows potentially hundreds of players in a massive warzone (final numbers TBD).

    Finally, what scummy micro-transactions? We don't sell power. We sell cosmetics. So...what are you referring to?
