Sounds like a meseta pso2 perfect opportunity for them….to promote them to you as Scratch items and call them the”GVS” versions or something. I have worked in the industry previously and rigging up fingers is not hard work, the issue is how many costume things would need to be altered with no financial justification. Plus giving folks fully working items with all the advantages (on what is basically a brand new sport ) would deincentivise players purchasing the”new” stuff. Yeah. They already release across the years the very same outfits (sky/night/blue/gv/b/etc.) But with recolors and sell them as new rather than giving us the ability to recolor them openly. And then the ones that you can recolor prices buying scratch items to get a color overhaul.
Personal speculation: PSO2 is being ported to the NGS motor to keep players occupied involving NGS content releases. No new content will be released for it out of cosmetics, of which will all be obtained/ported from NGS events/scratches to get people to play that. It is going to be eliminated after a few years after all the players have migrated over and the only individuals in the PSO2 cubes are diehards holdouts/nostalgia. Probably. It is a new game so chances are similar to any Online RPG the first release will not have much in regards to an endgame for those players that hit max level on day 1. It’ll be wonderful to just switch cubes anytime I want struck up an old UQ though. There’s never a reason to not see magatsu.
Great FAQ, answers a lot of my initial doubts.
Gosh, this seems so complex. On the one hand, kudos for maintaining the original game intact so there will not be a riot over fluctuations people do not like. But on the flip side, since they’re remaking base PSO2 visuals anyhow, I wish they would just go 100% and synchronize personality models entirely. Giving old players some free style items and unlocks will be sufficient to bribe everyone to accept the new system.
Synchronizing 100% character models does not sound simple. The problem is that the older outfits and coating use are modeled to fit the old pso2 body. That’s not likely to happen. I mean that I would be ready to drop a certain percentage of these cosmetics to help keep things intact around versions. Provided that there’s a buy PSO2 Meseta continuous feed of cool new stuff to replace it, I do not mind. I always rotate out my older appearances anyhow. So long as the character models translate 1:1 it will still feel like mine.
