Emblems

I understand a user-devised custom-emblem option is being worked on, which is great, but what I'd like to see is the option to have more than one emblem and put emblems on different items of apparel, not just your chest-item but on your helmet or hat, you boots, have the emblem replicated on your knees or as a repeating pattern, etc, and on your weapon where possible as well (shield would be a given) and possibly even being able to reproduce it as an animation/effect for certain powers.

Is this do-able?

It's doable, but how much of it is a launch feature is hard to say - we're certainly aiming for emblems on capes at launch.

One emblem I'd love, is a stylized Eagle (http://static.freepik.com/free-photo/ea ... -12039.jpg, bottom right) that's sharp, maybe even like this (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-leBmLXDQVvk/U ... CF3673.JPG) or (http://thumb7.shutterstock.com/display_ ... 289068.jpg).

I would hope it could be metallic gold or silver, or even metallic multi-colored for various countries. I wanted this on my main on CoH forever ago. And a star roundel with sharp eagle wings on the sides like this:

Just a few ideas.

As for placement, I'd say: chest, back, shoulder-pads, belt buckle, glove cuffs, boot top/knee bits, forehead, collar, and tops of feet. Those're the most common places in the comics where that'll be seen.

Another one: http://thumb7.shutterstock.com/display_ ... 481019.jpg
And this: http://d2a2wjuuf1c30f.cloudfront.net/pr ... iginal.jpg
Finally: http://www.flyingtigerantiques.com/mm5/ ... wngobv.jpg

If we use this, add our own emblems inside a roundel or shield, that would be another cool emblem creator feature.

Multi-part emblems that players can assemble themselves is one of the things that we're looking at for our character creator - although it'd need careful testing to make sure that the additional texture requirements weren't going to create a noticeable performance hit.

As fore eagles and wings, there's quite a bit of phoenix symbolism in the lore and setting, so you're likely to get various stylized bird emblems to use.

As GG said, come launch this place is going to be lousy with phoenix/eagle/wings imagery. But until then, these transparent decals are yours.

The bottom one looks okay, but that top one just looks evil. If there's going to be a fascist or 5th Column-like group then that should be their symbol.

LOL. I was swinging at Bad-Ass Vigilante, but sure, I'll settle for evil. Let's keep it the way it is, and I'll do another with softer edges.

Those look better. When I saw your first proposition the first thing that came to mind was the Nazi >eagle over a swastika<. It was the way the head was facing and the blockiness of the wingtips that made it unappealing.
Eagle S2 doesn't have that same feel to it so I'd keep that one. :)
