Helmet Hide feature

Recommended Posts

I would not like to wear a hood while playing and I feel many would not like to show their helmets in many different cases for all sorts of reasons. Some people like showing their hair too. Could you guys please try to get a hide helmet feature. :] Any players agree?

I agree. I consider the use of helmets only when the character creator simply cannot make a decent looking "insert blank race"....

In terms of battlefield strategy, I do not like this idea. By looking at the armor--some of those helms are VERY distinctive--you know not only the race (due to armor being racially styled), but knowing what X armor type on Y race looks like--along with weapons--but you also know the class. In this way, you can better prioritize targets in combat, as you have a complete silhouette. Breaking up those unique silhouettes takes away from one's ability to speedily assess what enemies are there, and which to focus or avoid.

I understand your position. Let me ask you, if vessels did not have a helmet on, how many folks would you really not be able to tell or have a good idea since you still have armor and weapons, plus now the head of vessel?

You can very simply have hide helmet only show for yourself, so everyone can see what your actually wearing however you wont see your helmet

Skins are already a planned feature.

ACE has gone on record saying they don't like forcing people in to an aesthetic for mechanical reasons.

You're going to lose much if not all of those "tactical reasons" in the future anyway.

They can still do things like plate armor skins, leather armor skin and so on so you still know what armor type there using and so on.

I base it off animations not gear/appearance. Played too many games with skins/costumes to depend on gear/appearance

Dude!


First of all, sorry for necroing. BUT!

I have the opposite problem, I want a 'show helmet' feature! I've made a Half-giant and a Centaur. NONE of them have helmets when I equip the very first "Cap". And Half-Giant doesn't even have chest armor, where have they gone? I see their icons(and they're supposed to replicate the actual item, right?) and I equip, and I still look as noob as before, what's going on?! Make a  'show helmet' before making a 'hide helmet', PLEASE! :D

I would like a "hide helmet" feature.

There are many races I will not play at all because their helmets come with "fake" hair. The hairstyle doesnt match what you chose at character creation. Its particularly stupid when your character is bald, then equips a helmet, and now has long hair...

I can even overlook that to some extent, because its a lot of work to make a helmet for each hairstyle that is a possibility for each race....i guess. But I cannot excuse that the fake hair attached to the helmet is a different color than the hair I chose at creation.

For example, the hair colors of the stoneborn helms (there is a different color for mail and a different color for plate) are colors that dont even exist as a choice at character creation. So you cant even specifically try to match the colors of your chosen hair with that of the armor type you will be wearing.

Ok, got on to TEST. Tried a new race, just equipped the new helm (Cap), it's hidden clearly... Make a show helmet feature!? I mean, I know it's a pleb helmet, but, not even a pen behind his ear? C'mon. Something for the work should be given.. Flower in his hair? Stud in his ear? Something, anything! This is just lazy and bad for a craft heavy game..

Hide Helmet option please.

A ton of PVP-oriented games have a Hide Helmet type feature and there have been no complaints there. It is certainly not a deal breaker in PVP. 

Besides, a lot of these helmets are FUGLY.
