Its better not to become an Open world to be honest, recall how Maplestory great maps were hogged by Top level players and AFK Vacuum Meso Farming bots, or what about Hackers vacuuming the dinosaurs and the World Bosses into an unreachable place players can't access without the clip hacking of boundaries and that bot just kill them all in pso2 sales an instant and loot it all, and market them into the Player Shop for exorbitant costs to get Meseta to sell RMT out of? Yeah that's gonna be a poor look for an open world MMO. I would not mind a Pawn, like Dragon's Dogma, that learns from you as you play together.
Im so pleased about the outfits! And the way that the games coexist with all the block-like system! Im officially hyped now, thank you pso2 devs for clearing it all up! Perhaps not the greatest fan of how there appears to be two entirely distinct body meshes for style, and it cannot be mixed and matched. Regardless, very pleased with how this is all playing out. Maybe due to New Genesis's Physique Character is likely having additional details like Skin Lustre and Moving Finger animations that cannot be moved over to PSO2 base match, The only desire I had is that a single day, they would patch every fashion to be mix and mash potential, like for example, using a CAST arm in NGS while the other parts are PSO2 parts to maintain the palms moving .
Yeah it definitely has to do with fundamentally different body rigging about the new outfits, and insufficient resources (money and time ) to update rigs on current outfits. Contemplating everything Sega is doing in the graphics overhaul, there's no way this limitation would be set up if it was an easy fix. And there a quite a lot of outfits, particularly on JP side. I really hope they just slowly update clothing over time particularly the exclusive ones out of the product codes and collabs. I would not mind if they make them into a separate NGS scratch when it is going to incentivize them to do so. This is really wonderful. I really do hope though that they gradually update the aged PSO2 Outfits and Layered wears to let finger movement down the road. Especially Collaboration outfits and layered wear (Half-Life, Persona, Anime Collabs, etc).
Sounds like a perfect chance for them....to promote them as Scratch things and call them the"GVS" versions or something. I've worked in the market in the past and rigging palms up is not hard work, the matter is how many costume things would have to be altered without a financial justification. Plus giving folks completely working items with the benefits (on what's essentially a new sport ) could deincentivise players purchasing the"new" stuff. Yeah. However, with recolors and sell them as new instead of giving us the ability to recolor them openly. And then the cheap meseta pso2 ones that you can recolor costs exchanging scratch things for a color pass.
