Please don't. If you do, I'd have to politely ask to cancel the series. Censor what you feel you need to (But I don't think there is a single vulgar/offensive picture in there), but don't substitute - make that a obvious censorship like a black rectangle. The 2 mods for helmetless armor/maskless suits, found in the package, which are based on roxis's graphics, are fully accepted and it might indeed be better because they allow to see the face which should be better for the participants/audiences in the community.

1/ OK, I didn't want to but I went through all the resources now to be able to give you the feedback. The only thing I would consider censoring is the directory "Body_40" (by putting a small black rectangle where the panties should be). All other nudity is fine for me. There was one more picture of two superheroes in flagranti, which I also found a bit "unsuited" even if it doesn't display any nudity. All in all, I think I can just avoid these two by not even following the research path leading to them; thus not having to censor anything.

2/ It is not clear from your post, if using the new armours mod from Roxis (inspired by jmf's fanart) is OK or not... ? I won't be using it in the first 50 episodes for sure, but maybe in the second half of the LP I would like to feature some of his work too... would that be OK?

1. Body_40 is not accessible in-game (except quick battle). The other thing - it's a side unimportant branch of research anyway.

2. Yeah, it'd be ok, I was only speaking about substitutions.

All right, so here's the thing I've promised - the picture customization! There is a picture attached with numbers, and to get these numbers, you need to edit the save. There are 3 parameters in each saved character, and each combination leads to an unique portrait:

gender [0..1]: differentiates between two torsos find on a spritesheet. In Piratez, the 'male' torsos (0) have short hair, while the 'female' ones (1) have long hair.

look [0..4]: 4 looks per gender. With 2 genders, it makes the 8 vanilla soldier types.

lookVariant [0..15]: a parameter added by Yankes. It allows to create up to 16 varied sets of the 8 above. Currently only numbers 0 to 3 are meaningful (for 32 looks); however the game randomly chooses any of these numbers on soldier creation, there's just a very cool script that always ensures the looks are evenly distributed amongst these 128 possibilities, no matter how many paperdolls you actually have.

Now for the code (hope all the numbers are right, but even if they aren't, Meridian is a smart person and will manage :) )

Code: [Select]
@1:
        gender: 1
        look: 0
        lookVariant: 0
@2:
        gender: 1
        look: 3

@5:

27:

        lookVariant: 0

@28:

        look: 0
        lookVariant: 3

@29:
        gender: 0
        look: 3
        lookVariant: 3

@30:
        gender: 0
        look: 1
        lookVariant: 3

@31:
        gender: 1
        look: 3
        lookVariant: 3

@32:
        gender: 1
        look: 1
        lookVariant: 3

As for Dioxine Rune, my preference is portrait #5 and combat wise, mid-field combatant (pistols, shotguns as primary, sniping or meleeing only as a secondary option), with a liking towards traps, voodoo, backstabbing and other cheaty attacks, so Reactions is the most important stat, while Stregth is the least important :)

Martian Max reporting! Looking for a "mid-far"-field, designated marksman (not a sniper), gal. Walk up with the gals to provide mid/long-range support and covering reaction fire. Hunting/Scoped/Battle rifle or Heavy Cannon type guns and guerilla suit if available! (Roxis! Make a gorilla suit alternative armor for guerilla?) Emphasis on accuracy, followed by reactions.

Would be happy to take a secondary support weapon (harpoon gun, grenade launcher or RPG) if available since those fit with the mid-range shooting.

Oh, and portrait 14!

Only two are wrong  ;)

#19 should be 012 (instead of 112)
#27 should be 023 (instead of 020)

Hi Draco, I don't have your nickname on the list yet... what female piratey name would you like to be known under? Sorry if I missed it, but I don't see it anywhere.

Woo! I was hoping for the first episode, but now I'm just posting here for posterity. :)
I should've left a name in my initial post before I got skipped over by everyone. :(

Draconian Griselda, Medical Sapper extraordinaire!

There you go!

I've been thinking about your statement concerning the UFOpedia entries.

Researching Mutant Porn will unlock research for at least FIVE different Armours (I think): The Swimsuit, Seductress (very useful), Mesh (Handy), Witch (VOODO), and Ghost (Invisible)

As far as I know the only way to get the 'two superheroes in flagranti' picture is the Superhero Armour research which is started by researching the Superslave.

Also if you plan on researching each of the slave types, you might want to censor the Magic Girl entry - After all the text states they Wear nothing but TK suppressors, and the picture is effectively a full frontal nude.
