imageThe Female Marine - Natural Selection 2

She was one of the first features of Natural Selection 2 to ever be revealed to the world: an early concept gracing the original development blog. She is symbolic of the type of game developer that Unknown Worlds seeks to be.  She was promised post-release. She is badass. And today, she is here:

    Nice. Do we have to wait for a patch, or is this going live today in an update?

    "Female marines receive brand new first person view-models, one for each of the three model types. "

    Will the Male marine get FP view model specific arms also? Like for Special Edition black armor?

    And in comparison to the marine male model, this model is what size exactly? If it's smaller it's going to affect balance, even though it may only affect it in a small way, that little thing may be the difference between life and death.

    Don't fuck up on this one.

    Other than that, hi5 femalez

    As long as the hitbox and collisions are the same. This is a nice addition.

    Okay because I asked for you to make the woman, look more like a woman and give her gender specific features. You're changing my posts? Explain without being rude please.

    The plan is that we are going to try and use the same hitbox size for both the male and female.

    Cory, you just made me "Squeal like a pig." I love you and your art design.

    Gaming isn't about realism. It's about engaging the gamer as a gamer relates to their character. Hence why lots of games go the extra mile with gender specific features to make you relate more to the game, the character and the environment.

    It also adds the element of identifying a certain player in a specific way. If you gave the female marine in a world where nanites apparently exist, a curvier armor set to show she's a female, you can use this to identify a certain marine carrying maybe a shotgun more easier etc.

    It's about the game experience, not about prudeness, perverseness or realism.

    Awesome work guys, I love this approach, some of my female gamer friends will surely be happy because you didn't go around objectifying women in your game.

    I'm just bringing this up because coincidentally not so long ago we had a huge conversation on skimpy armors and how Skyrim's female armor mods are horrible, this, on the other hand, is good.

    *These kind of comments are not needed here --Comprox*
    My nickname in-game is "phoe", and I'm an NS addict.

    I haven't managed more than two days without NS since 2002.

    My wife tells me I regularly jump in bed as though I've just been ambushed, and swear (or shout out orders) in my sleep :-}

    Female Kharaa coming too?
    Each day, hundreds of enthusiastic new players rush to join the ranks of the TSF to protect the universe, our beloved and the values of our society from the alien menace.

    Glory to the TSF! Glory to Arstotzka ! Glory to the mods!

    Censored by Comprox. As having the opinion that females should look female, is illegal on these forums. Consider it dropped as long as this message stands.

    Kharra are asexual, the gender is irrelevant.

    Nice waste of resources. How about that matchmaking and bringing in new players?
