Nudity

Look this is a bit of a stupid question considering this game has all female characters and all, but can you turn off nudity? I'm thinking of playing and this is the only question I have left before joining, so please hurry!

i dont think you can turn off other peoples, npcs, and you definitely cant help the art. this game is mainly based on nudity and sexual themes really so you might as well not play. if you're okay with not being able to turn off others nudity but want to play a character that isnt so... voluptuous then i recommend sentinel class.

Nudity is part of the game.

99% of the time you'll be seeing other players in skimpy lingerie instead of nude though. There are a few quest dialogs that have nude art that goes with them, and some nudity in the puzzles, but for the most part you aren't going to see anything that couldn't be on TV unless you focus on it.

What I mean is that when you see 20 people standing around town checking auctions and stuff, one or two might be nude, but they're in a crowd and you have other things to do, so unless you go and focus your camera on them you aren't likely to see much.

I wouldn't say the game is completely safe to play around kids or whatever, but in practice it's likely to have less nudity than watching an episode of Game of Thrones.

Honestly, I can't even imagining see this game without the partial nudity and such. I believe it will take the appeal from the game mostly. Truth be told, I think more needs to be put into new types of content like different types of quests.

I mean, I know this game is pretty much your basic cookie cutter MMORPG where you're told to kill this and that in about almost every quest but I would like some type of variety like escort or time based quests (IE: quests that can only be done at specific times and such).

I have played shaiya for 5 years, and Shaiya has an option to turn Helmets and Capes on/off in Settings (for yourself; it didnt affect how other players viewed it).

I've suggested something similar here, to where you could toggle some lingerie on at least for your own personal view.

However, the response I received was discouraging.

Liveplex views this game as their masterpiece, and any suggestion to "improve" or "modify" upon it is met with stout defiance. If fact it's probably the most taboo subject I have ever discussed with a GM; I felt like I was within the abyss when having this discussion, because of the amount they stressed that suggesting such things could damage relations with Liveplex. They simply want full control over how their product develops.

In my opinion personally, it would only help the game by attracting more players. It wouldn't affect players who like the nudity at all. But, Art is Art.

Your forum name is "diseasedcowpie", a veiled reference to dysentery, a painful and often deadly disease often gotten by inadvertent contact with poo, and you object to nudity. Even if the name was just a happy accident, I question your priorities.

That would be a good way to approach nudity. I can understand why some people who don't mind the nudity in general wouldn't want it all the time. Like if some other adult might be int he room who wouldn't be put off by girls in bathing suits running around.

Having a toggle wouldn't exactly make the game "safe for work" but some people might have issues with spouses or SOs.
