Male Nethari & Male Half-Elf Revealed in New Dev Blog

Male Nethari & Male Half-Elf Revealed in New Dev Blog - MMORPG.com

ArtCraft's Melissa Preston has taken to the Crowfall site to introduce fans and players to a pair of new characters: the male Nethari and the male Half-Elf. The Nethari can play as a confessor, Templar or Assassin, while the Half-Elf can play as Ranger, Assassin or Druid. The blog post goes into a bit of lore behind the race as well as how the original models have been adapted for the opposite gender, in this case for males.

We’ve taken measures to further optimize how our characters are handled technically. The Humans, Nethari, and Half-Elves now all share a master rig (or skeleton). When a new character is added like the male Nethari, the animators (or “Taters” as we like to call them) will skin the new equipment onto the master rig and transfer all existing animations onto the new model as necessary. The Humans, Nethari and Half-Elves have some cross-over with some of the Classes that they can play so this sharing saves us a bit of time and overall memory footprint. These kinds of measures help to alleviate some of the development costs of such a diverse character customization system.

Check out the full post on the Crowfall site.
