Terricon, eagle eyes as usual!

The deformations on the humans are due to the fact that we don't have custom anims for it yet, and the retargetting was hasty. Once we have our own anims in, the weird bends and bulges will dissappear.

As we are pressed for time to get the KS going, after we fix the anims, we most likely will not be tweaking the glowstripes. The octal pattern being missing on the male is something we might do. Since the demo is all about the Omniframes, we will be looking at doing our fixes there that you pointed out.

Just me posting my feedback on the art build. Some various things that are just personal opinion on how it looks, and also some actual parts that could probably use to be fixed or improved on.
....
I agree with pretty much everything you said. One thing to note is that the suits are not the final ones, founder suits will get tweaks and there is concept art for the alt female.I actually started making some mockups in Zbrush. They will be more colorful and customizable in the future.

(Note that this is just a rough test sculpt and might change in the future or not be used at all, but it should give you an idea)

We're still playing around with many things like surface shaders so stuff will change look all the time until we achieve a nice balance. Kaiju are also planned to be colorful but we haven't gotten to that yet.

The one thing we should really look into are the deformations on the meshes you posted. They do look really weird some times. Dunno if it's the rigging, animation or IK in the case of the feet.

Thanks to everybody for their feedback, we're a tiny team working part time so we will miss many things while rushing to get things done. You've all posted a lot of stuff i didn't even notice while working on them :)

NOTE: To clarify, M3 backer suits may get tweaked as far as surface shader and color balance goes, newcomer suits will be similar to what's shown in the pic.

Wanted to wish Xeevis a happy birthday, author of our Emberbot in Discord. He is the one responsible for all the cool stuff it does like the .blame tag, which we use to harass Plzbanme during raffles...oh yes, he did the raffle system too!

He's not feeling well today, so let's wish him good health on his birthday! Thank you, Xeevis, and Happy Birthday!

Over the course of Em8ER's development, a lot of fans have proposed in-jokes, quests and Em8ER memes as content. I promised a thread where you can post all of that, so here it is.

We lead off with:

The "Anrothan Title" :: The one you get from doing a Printer quest where you pick up a rock the size of a printer and break your character's back ...

History: I threw out my back trying to move a industrial color printer at the start of dev. I was laid out for days and it caused some delays back when we were printing posters.
