Double post, excellent... let's make use of it, then.
I'm sympathetic to the workload.
But, try not to paint the picture in such a way that you actively discourage race related feedback during Beta.
Purely aesthetic things are reasonable requests in the grand scheme of things.
I'm sorry Zem. I won't discourage the feedback, but my opinion is that it is not a good thing to implement more races, right now at least.
I've seen too many MMO's recently where the level of animation is simply horrible. It really puts me off seeing such thing, in games of this time and age. I can't say that the number of races is the only reason for the animations to suck, but it surely puts a lot more workload for the animators, so it's not helping at least.
If it meant we could keep the level of detail as good as possible while implementing new races, I wouldn't have anything against it. But I don't want to see the standard to suffer because of this. Edited, Mar 28th 2010 9:09am by Hyanmen
