I'd suggest something about the appearance of the chars. Elves, for example, look all the same, no matter one is wearing an armor, the other a robe and another one is nude.
Would it be possible to make them look a bit like what they're wearing? I dont think it would be necessary to be exactly the same we're wearing... Armors could look all the same, but at least something we could see they're wearing an armor. Or robes or whatever.
As for helping, I'm not a programmer, but I've mastered many pen and paper rpg, creating maps (in paper, of course) and quests, so let me know if I could be useful.
Illa forever!
If you look at the screenshot, and really take a somewhat closer look, you might end up finding out that the thing you just suggested happens to somewhat end up being included in the VBU.
And i bet you can be useful, just click on the link up there saying Estralis.

Did I notice that you can change the way your character looks, like skin tone, hair, all that stuff? :o

Oh no! Can you upload the video in a way everyone can view it?
Youtube blocks it for me claiming license conflict...

So are these actual map pictures or were these just thrown together to give us a better idea of what we will see item wise>

And I liked the video, I am so excited to hear the new Illarion soundtrack. ;)

:arrow: The artist created awesome tracks for Illarion, however, sounds effects are always welcome. And, of course, if you're a skilled composer...

orcs are nude..to some extent..only a small fur thingy covering their crotch with a bare ass. laughed my, at the time, drunken ass of when i saw that the first time. oooo aaaaa, pictures! illaheroin will become even more funsies when you can tell one character from the other with hair and what they are wearing and make snow look better please, rain is adequately looking. *inhales* i hope you will continue to focus, like ninjah(!), on the rocket propelled grenade of this unique game. making it easier to pay, such as using visa and typing in card number, would make me feel manleh for paying for awesomeness..even if i don't play as often as i used to.

Re: Pssst...interested in the VBU?

It looks pretty cool. I don't think I expected what it looks like, but it's certainly not a disappointment. I don't see why we can't get more screenshots. :)

The crummy looking, recoloured 3D characters remind me of Runescape.

Please devs, tell me that all the different clothes and armour's arn't just going to be recolours of the same stuff?

You, of course, realise that you're effectively talking about having an engine that on the fly converts 3d images to 2d or otherwise making millions of permutations of graphics for 8 directions for 6 races including animations and have the client have to load all this stuff.

Re: Pssst...interested in the VBU?

The Developers are spending a large amount of their free time in order to create a better game, when they don't have to. The graphics are fine to me.

No reason to be unappreciative.

With a nickname like Graphicus I'm pretty sure he knows all about Graphics ;)

Re: Pssst...interested in the VBU?

the graphics of illaheroin is something you get used to. just the fact that you can tell one character from the other makes the very big update worth waiting for :) and yah, the developers are taking time out of real life to create something we whine about to no end, or avail, whichever makes you woozy.
