Sorry if this should be a question for the individual blogs of staff, but what species are YOU guys most excited for?

Probably the owls and wyverns the most.

(Everyone else can edit lol)

EDIT

I’m actually kind of neutral to all of them *LOL*. I’m more stoked about the terrain models and the NPCs we have planned than anything.

Owl :D

Cleaned Up

I’ve deleted various asks that I felt were unnecessary. Questions that have been asked and answered before, are already answered in the FAQ, or weren’t questions at all. I’m really aiming to keep the tumblr as clean as possible. I’m sorry if your question/support got deleted.

How many triangles does the raven model have?

Anonymous

1712 is the current poly count. I’m not too good with how triangulating the models work, sorry. ;w;

Hopefully not a bad idea, but I can see the world being inspired by Disney's works, primarily it's less 'modernized' films (The Lion King, Brother Bear, possibly Dinosaur), or in a more whimsical style, Studio Ghibli isn't a very bad option either. Though, of course, all in a more realistic style, and not outright copying the designs of the worlds (no one wants a lawsuit on their hands). Of course, these are all simply my ideas, and may not impact the game development itself.

I think as a whole we’d love to be inspired more by Ghibli stuff. His works are greater in my opinion, and I’m pretty sure the rest of the staff’s opinions, then Disney works.

We just want to be our own thing, though.

I got an idea like you find somewhere a crystal and vines or something and you can collect them and make an accessory from them, or find a skull and wear it as a helmet?

Maybe! Thanks.

PvP Idea: Instead of whole character levels, skill levels? As in, your character wont have levels or level ups, but instead, practising a certain skill will eventually make it evolve into a more stonger one. Or, maybe the whole character also levels up, but independently from the skill set.

To be honest, skill based leveling bugs the crud out of me. It sucked on Oblivion. Thanks for the idea, though.

Will we be able to choose up to three different tufts just like markings? Or is that gonna be a sepperate thing, one tuft design a character?

Anonymous

That’s certainly a thought. For the time being I’m going to say one tuft a character. There will be plenty of variations, so hopefully this won’t be a problem.

Keep up the amazing work guys c: I´m sure the game will look amazing with all the heart the team puts into it! On a second note, will you be able to make maps in Arokai? Like importing objects, doing terrain maps and all that.

B)

Users wont be able to make maps like in FH or IT. However you can send us ideas for terrain you’d like to see here

Why can’t we make custom maps?

Aro’kai has a plot, storyline, and a theme. If we allow for users to make custom maps they may step out of that storyline, plot, or theme. Users may suggest ideas for map addons however. [July 8th, 2013] As of right now, landscape and terrain (or in other words, the map) ideas are especially appreciated. So go to the forums and give us your concepts, input, feedback, and ideas!

The creature seems like a raven or crow. Is it going to be a variation of the owl, or a new type all together? I would love to see corvids in the game. The tail seems a little ragged though; are you going to do anything about that? Also, I had heard once before that you would not be able to make the wings neatly fold because they are low-poly. Is that still the case, or can you implement better dynamics now?

Anonymous

It may be playable or it may not. Not every model we’ll be showing will be playable. 

Nothing is going to be edited of the final thing except maybe minor changes. We are rather satisfied with how it looks. :) It looks scraggly on purpose.

The issues with folding wings on winged creatures isn’t bad but it can get mildly…frustrating. xD The wings are still low poly so they don’t fold perfectly, and it takes experimentation to get it to where we’d want it.

- Shus

Edit: …also, you’re judging it based on the silhouette, why not wait until a full reveal? :D - ONOWL.

For the worlds will like there be able to be owls and deer and wolves in the same world or will there be like owls in one world only ect.. Hope that makes sense I couldn't figure out how to explain it better

Animals are allowed to mingle yeah. There’s no “OWLS ONLY. GO AWAY >8(” areas and stuff like that.

If I wanted to make a group (official or not), would it be okay to have this group be scattered and nomadic and really just be a community of RPers with a story but little interaction with other group members except in times of war against another group? Could it still be made official if it is like this?

When it comes to roleplay groups, pretty much anything goes. Just as long as they follow the PG-13 guidelines and do not break any rules.

As for if it could be made official, I’m not sure. The criteria for official groups can be found here . My advice is to just have fun with your group and try not to focus on having to make it be official. B]

Will unofficial roleplay groups be allowed? Also, the whole "parties" thing where you can play as five characters at once needs some work, since I could see it being used to get a character to a location that its species can't visit normally.

Unofficial roleplay groups are welcome. If I remember correctly, it was Official groups may get in-game benefits (not sure what). Thats the main difference between an Official and regular.

Thank you for your input with the party system. When we start working on it, we’ll take that into consideration. B]

-CCL

So for groups, will it only be staff managed groups? Or can normal members submit groups to be official?

Anonymous

Normal members can submit groups to be official! Right now we don’t have applications open, but you can make an unofficial group and it may become official at some point! :D

Regarding how staff answers questions;

Onowl here! There was a lil’ reblog mishap last night and I’d like to clear something up - no one on our team intends to come off as rude, mean, inconsiderate, etc. Especially not when we’re trying to answer questions that come to us through this Tumblr of ours!

I apologize profusely if you get that impression, but please remember that portraying emotion over the Internet is not the same for everyone! We try to avoid emoticons/emotions in our responses. Flat and to the point - informational and educational! That way there are no misunderstandings, no confusion for our fans. 

For future reference, if you have a problem with any team members’ behavior - on the tumblr, forums, facebook, etc - if you ever have a problem at all with any post of ours or you feel that we’re wronging you, please, please come talk to me. You can email me at superfeesh.arokai@live.com or contact me through deviantart (corndogbutts) tumblr (onowl) or even on the forums (superfeesh is the login name you send the message to but my name appears as onowl). 

Thank you so much for your consideration and again, I apologize for the misunderstandings! :)

- ONOWL.

(Additionally I have tagged involved participants in the hopes they see this so further confusion can be cleared! Please do not target/harass them, I do not want to see that sort of behavior!)
