Monk Glowing Eyes

Post by Daemona » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:53 pm

I was curious how others felt about the monk glowing eyes. I know Avlis put quite a bit of time into the coding so that the eyes reflected alignment As I recall the glow itself is OOC for characters and the color is definitely OOC.

As I am not a coder I am not even sure this can be done or the priority of the change I am suggesting as specified by the poll.

It is not so much that it gives away class because once a monk reaches level 20 they are faster than a normal hasted character. 160% at level 20 and 170% at level 21. I am not in favor of the different eye colors as it immediately gives away alignment. The players here are great at ignoring OOC and separating from IC. Bit we are all human and even though you do your best to ignore it the alignment sits in the back of your mind.

Please make one of the Selection of playing a monk or not playing a monk.

There actually hard coded as part of the NWN engine, to show alignments. Also, Monks Glowing Eyes are IC on Avlis, and so is their meaning. http://www.avlis.org/viewtopic.php?p=908828#p908828

I hate the glowy eyes, I hate how they look. I have actually considered taking only 19 monk levels with Frisian and giving up immunity to mind spells just because I hate them so much. I probably wont, but I would love it if we could turn them off, sounds like we can't though.

It was broken at one time but by Bioware. One of the people I play with on Avlis though has a file/hak that disables the glow client side. Female elf heads can be nasty as at least some of them have glowing cheeks and not eyes. Doug Noel on Avlis at one time was going to change it but it never happened and that was at least 8 years ago.

Don't get me wrong, there are things that can be done. But at this stage of the game, it would need to be CoPaP wide, or some other justification to do it. DM reward for plot, etc. Would require a bic edit.
