new skins 4 the DEN

Post  skeeteR on Sat Mar 30, 2013 12:38 pm

I'm working on a few new skins. Not sure how it will go yet, but I'll keep you all updated. I'm also trying to find some pictures of the skins, so I can show you what they look like.

The only catch is:
1. I wont be able to make the skins spawn as loot (at least not in the beginning, but hopefully I'll get this more complicated part done later)

2. Since it wont spawn, I will need to come up with some sort of ingame "currency". For example, a player could trade the server 2 FN FALS to pick a certain skin. (this is only an example, a proper currecy would need to be developed with the community's help). Once he "gives" me those items, I would then assign the skin to his unique player ID.

3. The last catch, once I assign the skin to the player.....he will always have it when he logs in. For example, say "Billy" puts on a guillie suit and later logs off. When he logs back in, he will not be wearing the guillie suit. Its going to take any clothing you put on each time you log. Some players will still be satisfied, and enjoy the new skin options. Plus, when someone wants to go back to normal survivor skin, I can remove the assigned skin.

**Like I said, this is still somewhat early. I need to do some more testing. But check back here for updates. I'll be posting pictures soon.

Also start thinking of a possible currency system that we will use to "purchase" the skins from the server. We can even give each skin its own "cost" depending on how badass it be.

So far I've been able to confirm 12 new skins.

i'm not done testing yet. but thats right

since the skins wont spawn as loot. if we do this we will need a currency so ppl can trade items to the server to have a certain skin assigned to their unique id.

I would like to ask for more civil and less army skins. Its not ARMA 2, its DayZ. Camo clothing and ghilie suit is enough.

still very early, also I'm limited on what I can do. Some skins are banned in the client. These pictures are just examples of the ones I've confirmed being able to add. Does not mean they will all actually be added.

a few things here or there are only meant to keep things fresh and new.

I feel giving people something new every now and then is important. the mods true definition was lost months ago, thanks to all the hacking/glitches on official hive servers. Private hives are left trying to glue everything back together. If we have the burden of fixing bugs/glitches......then we should also get to enjoy some of the fun stuff too. Standalone promises to take care of all these issues, so for now......we have our mod.

I wont add all of the military skins, I was just excited when I was able to get that many to work (out of a list that includes over 60 skins)

actually I'm getting some more of the civil ones to work

I like them better personally also, just can't get a decent picture to post.

Later on I'll just take some screenshots if I can't find some online.

Skeeter this looks awesome! Smile Smile I like the civilian clothing the most. Keep the military clothing for people who like it but I think more civilian clothing would be better as well.

Hey, would it be possible for me to reserve a set of skins say the military guy with the beret and make it so only NofW members have it?

There should be a vote if people are going to start reserving skins.

You don't need to be in the military to know how to properly shoot a gun so I am confused at your point?

still working on this, just getting all the bugs smoothed out.

for example, some skins change inventory/backpack capacity.

I'm just testing everything out, so we only offer skins that will not affect gameplay in any way. Soon I will start planning some sort of currency. So ppl can "purchase" a skin from the server by trading/giving me certain items.



*found a few more civilian type skins that work perfect. some are really cool looking.
