7 Tiers To Tantalize

TheWizardTheWizard Posts: 836 Wizard
I think I mentioned this before, but Exiles has 7 visual tiers for each piece of loot. As a piece of equipment levels up, it not only increases in power and effect, but in visual visualiness as well. Take a look at the a couple of the swords that we're designing to get a feel.

(bonus item that I will explain in the next Dev Update: we've moved to handpainted textures on the equipment, because-- well-- they look more magickal)

    "...but in visual visualiness as well."

    Oh dang! Visuals so nice you used it twice! These look awesome. Any info on how the leveling of gear will work?

    FINALLY. Phew. 

    Now we're messing around with lighting stuffs in-engine to see what looks best. Here's three different takes on it with the hand-painted textures:



    Which one you guys like bestest?

    I prefer #2. Don't like the shine on #1 and just prefer the sword canted in #2 vs. #3.

    I like the green skulls in the background.

    vote on #2...

    #1 : too much shine/glare on the sword....resulting in "whiteout"in the upper right picture....
    #2 : focus is just right on the invisible knight and Sword.....cleaner look
    #3: too much detail in the background...bit overwhelming....

    good stuff, @joeky, thank you. Agree #1 is getting too shiny. We're messing with the other two (but if anyone thinks the hardcore glare in #1 rocks, lemme know)
