    This is probably one of the best Halloween temp-costumes one can get. Why oh why can't they make some of this armor available as wearable pieces? I think the only thing from this suit that's in the CC is the visor. The gauntlets would be pretty cool too as a weapon-option for Dual Pistols.

    could be wrong, but I think those are available.

  • ScooterScooter Registered User regular
    No, the only 'PPD' suits available are the Praetorian Police.

  • Caulk Bite 6Caulk Bite 6 Registered User regular
    okay, they probably have a similar look, then.

    I just reinstalled the game from my Going Rogue Complete Collection disc. But I can't get the launcher to run at all. I'm on Windows XP.

    you have to download an ncsoft launcher from the site, they abandoned the city of heroes launcher (and good riddance)

    you don't have to redownload the files from the disk, it'll detect those

    Aw man, it detected my installation but it wants to do a 4GB download anyway. :(

    Also entering my Going Rogue Complete Collection serial number made my account VIP for a month. Oh boy!

    Man, at this rate I'm lucky to get a decent team once a week. I might have better luck if I join the server channels, but I need 4 tokens to get to tier 4 and be able to use them. I'd rather resub than be buying a bunch of points, but I don't want to resub if I can't get some regular activity!

    (I can't play with PA folks because bad timezone)

    Something I never figured out

    Does the game keep track of what level I grabbed enhancement slots at? Do the slots I grabbed after a level I've exemplared down to become ineffective?

    nope

    it does keep track of the level of the enhancements themselves, though

  • LednehLedneh shinesquawk Registered User regular
    So if I go stomping into (say) a level 20 team on a hideously IO'd out 50, what happens to the enhancement effects themselves, just scaled back? (I know an IO more than three levels above my current level doesn't count for activating set bonuses, but that's all I know)

    Unless they're purple, you get butt shit.

    If you'd like an anime thread, please PM me to discuss it. Include pics/video of your favorites.

    Yea, they're scaled down, I dunno the numbers. I'd like to note that this is the reason it's better to use/sell level 25 and 30 lotgs and numina's than level 50s.

    Man there is nothing quite like a five man team of all your friends, some in person, some on voicechat, battling your way through a swarm of parallel Nazis to defeat an archvillian and then watching the glorious sacrifice of your own clone surrounded by the corpses of evil doubles

  • PersonfacePersonface HAIL GAY SATANRegistered User regular
    The Evil Double questline is thoroughly enjoyable, intriguing enough to hold attention and excellent with friends.

    I can make characters with glowing eyes now. And Dr. Orpheus style capes.

    Gonna be trapped in character creator all night pretty much, re-exploring my options.

    If you look closely at that picture, you'll see how tightly all those various bits fit together. They don't like releasing costume pieces that ONLY work with certain other costume pieces, the PPD set is entirely like that. Put those bits with most of the other bits in the game and they're going to clip and generally look terrible.

    They did release the Enforcer set not long after PPD came out, it works a lot better for actually being fun to play around with.

    Ok so
    i have done a few sewer runs to level
    but i have no idea how these things work
    i've just joined someone's team, and they've done all the stuff to enter it
    It's called a Trial? How do i find these things, how do i start them?

  • A duck!A duck! Super Moderator, Moderator, ClubPA mod
    Get a team together, click on your LFG tab, select the sewer trial, hit queue.

    hooray!
    now
    i notice every time we do it our levels are set to 2
    does this happen every time automatically?


    also if anyone can explain this architect stuff
    that'd help
    its player made content? is there any kind of screening process, or is it gonna be 90% rooms full of stuff to easily level and then like 10 actually well done things that everyone knows about

    raneasig.png
  • grouch993grouch993 Registered User regular
    Yes, the Sewer Trial specifically sets your level and bumps it by one at each stage. Other trials will have minimum and maximum levels, most will lower your level to match the TF or whoever is leading if their level is below the max.

    Yes, player made. Screening is by playing and rating. You can search for the ones marked as developers choice or whatever it is.

    Character screenshooooooooots.

    First of all, Suplex Sam still exists. I've trashed a bunch of my pre-20 characters and all (like I always have, I love making characters), but I can never get rid of Sam. Plus he was actually fun as shit to play.
    Spoiler:

    First character I made coming back to the game was Civil Disorder, my Street Justice / Willpower brute that I took up through Praetoria as a member of the resistance and have on the hero side as of last night. My new favorite.
    Spoiler:

    I've always liked Dominators as an archetype and I've always teased them out as mental controllers mostly. I was dabbling at the choices tonight and finally made a fire themed one.
    Spoiler:

    Then I died during a mission because the powers don't put enemies out of commission in the same way that mental does and I wasn't expecting it. I said "fuck it," went to make a new character, and while I didn't actually go through with it (mostly 'cause plant control is also DoT-oriented like fire), I had enough variation to the fire dominator's theme to be happy with it and took a screenshot.

    The auras work perfectly in making your character look fuckin boss while actually serving no real purpose. One of the reasons they don't get unlocked normally until you're 30.
    Hard to look awesome when you've only got two moves (or less!) to use.

    Does anyone still play?
    Also can you do the missions for capes/auras when youre a f2p player?

    raneasig.png
  • The Geebs That Got BigtimedThe Geebs That Got Bigtimed Super Moderator, Moderator mod
    you can do those missions as a f2p player, I am about 99% sure

    you won't have access to all of the options for those unless you buy stuff in the store, but there's a pretty good default selection anyways

  • RubberACRubberAC Sidney BC!Registered User regular
    ugh posts are flipping around
    yeah i checked the wiki, and it took me a bloody age just to find the guy, and he has no quest for me. So i checked with the other possible contact anyway, and she didnt say a thing. frustrating.

    Who does do capes redside now? It's still the City Rep blueside...hmm.

  • LepLep Registered User regular
    Gotta use the find contact button to get the contact for the villain cape/aura mission.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    He's a special Goldbricker sitting in the middle of a small hedge-maze in CAD's New Haven neighborhood. If you're going to do his mission, you might as well pick up the 2nd Costume Slot mission as well if you haven't done it seeing they'll both take you to Sharkhead Isle.
