    CAS - Cosmetics Appreciation Society

    Seeing the recent explosion in Player Studio activity and the lively discussions going on in the crab decal thread started by jaguarskills, I think it is time the intriguing topic of Planetside 2 cosmetics got it's very own place on this forum.

    Welcome to the Cosmetics Appreciation Society, where all things superficial are given their proper attention.

    LUMIFIBRE!



    Although oddly I'm not really the type to go for that sort of thing in reality (my PC cases are notably absent of any deliberate glow, windows, etc)

    The Player Studio forums contain many interesting works in progress, for example this one:



    I like what I see!

    Lumifibre is indeed one of the most prominent aesthetic enhancements available. The MAX lumifiber is however apparently not that interesting. Just as well since it's a stupid recruitment reward.

    I'm really tempted to start a helmet somewhat reminiscent of Guy's from Daft Punk.

    Speaking of CAS, i really don't appreciate the helmets we're getting. TR is up to 4+ closed helmets now, with some of them looking straight up vanu, while all we have is a single closed player created helmet that looks too shiny. Not fair! Just hope this crap gets fixed. Also, i'm still waiting for the closed hyperion one. Ffs.

    All the new player studio helmets look amazing imo! Avalon and Viper are really cool, but I have a real soft spot for the weirdness on display with the Andronicus.



    I even quite like the NC tactical cap (tho wouldn't invest in any helmet that shows the eyes, since eyes aren't at all animated and look all freakish).

    By the way, this was the initial design of the quoted helmet, before TRay proclaimed it - and I quote - "barely VS in my opinion". Which begs the question: what is VS according to him.

    But fear not, here is the answer!

    If I had to guess I would say it's lacking the slick, refined, pointed aspect of VS design. They need a balance of goofy/awkward weirdness and highly refined, pointed awesomeness. The chin in the concept kind of throws off the balance, making the goofy aspect a bit too dominant. TL:DR; needs more sharp edges.

    Also lol at the second TRay link.

    Yes, VS is about slick curves with no angle or agressive/sharp edges. Any blocky angle is for NC. (note that this is SOE view, not mine).

    That's why his examples are actually relevant.

    Have a look at this one: http://p3d.in/WXJBc

    It is called Silence and will sadly not reach us anytime soon, since the creator is from Europe...

    It seems that the PTS is working properly again, so get in and check out the new helmets. The Viper in particular is amazing, and works surprisingly well even with the Infiltrator silhouette.

    The new patch is apparently going to put more visible faction colours on infiltrators, so that you can't just put on Amerish Leaf camo and pretend to be a small bush.

    New camos. And Helmets. I thought Halftone and Splatter were notable. They will make sure that you won't go unnoticed, especially if you're NC, hah.




    Behold the NC version!


    P.S.: Both of these look awesome on vehicles!

    When playing Halo in multiplayer I always had a bright yellow Spartan armor just to be as visible as possible. It appears something similar is now achievable in Planetside 2.

    Is that a photo of Wall-E below the two of Garrus?

    And god forgive me, but I love that Garrus helmet.

    Fucking hell. Are they fucking kidding with yellow? It's like salt on open wound.
    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!
