As the title suggests. I know this is quite a huge request and it isn't necessarily realistic, but I still wanted to share my idea. Why not outsource 3D content creation to the community? Identity will most probably be a huge success, which I have no doubt about. It might redefine MMO gaming in a way I have always dreamed of. But take a look at the incredible, nearly immeasurable amounts of 3D content you as the developers will have to create. Especially things like cars and customizable parts clothing items all kinds of tools/items and even furniture will require insane amounts of work in addition to the gameworld itself. I don't want to compare GTA in any gameplay-related way, but in terms of the stuff I mentioned, especially the variety of GTA Online serves as a great example for these categories, only in Id everything will be usable and cooler, of course. My suggestion continues as follows: 1. Open content creation and -submission to the community. 2. Establish a jury among your people who will judge all submitted content by criteria like low-poly enough? still quality models? fits the general game art style? still needed? cars: enough customizable parts, enough detail, yet not too much? car licensing? (whole new topic that I don't know about yet) 3. Integrate content that matches your criteria into new game updates, somehow credit the authors. 4. If some really great 3D designers appear to get their models approved frequently by your jury and players use their stuff often in-game, maybe pay them some money or in-game currency (?) (RL-money only as soon as you're making profit with the game, of course) 5. Shorten your development times greatly by repeating 1-4. EDIT: 4.1 Open calls for bids for items you specifically need Greetings, a fan
Identity is already looking like it's going to be amazing and I can't wait to see what the first module release will show us. However, something still sits in the back of my mind telling me to not get my hopes up (too late) for what I consider the most important part of this game, the character creation, or to be more spot -on our "identities". If my greatest hopes come true then Identity will have a dynamic character creator that allows everyone to have the look they desire and an actual realistic diverse population will result from it. I'll be able to build my cool yet grim cyberpunk-ish dude while my girlfriend can have fun getting the super sexy curves and sultry facial features of her babe just right. If a game this important and anticipated doesn't have a notable character creation system like for example "Black Desert" or something somewhat similar I'm going to be very very sad. This game is named "Identity'" after all and from the sounds of it so far it's looking like if Second Life, ARMA3, and GTA5 had a threesome and then 9 months later a baby was born but no one could tell who it looked most like, and I'm saying this is a very good thing! So who else shares my hopes of an amazing character creator? Any ideas? Do we have any current sneak peaks?
