New Custom Model Character Options!

New Custom Model Character Options!

In addition to opening up "hostile" and irregular factions to be played on the server, we're also opening up something we have taken to calling "Mini-CMCs". This means regularly profiled characters (Special Profiles) that sport special models, which opens up the more common subraces to be played (Taunka, Dragonmaw, the Forest Trolls, Broken, etc). CMCs will still be a thing and cover the rare racial options and will remain as restricted as before, but that doesn't mean the mini-CMCs won't be restricted as well.
  • Only available as Special Profiles. This means only Grunts+ will be allowed access to these race/character options for now.
  • One per player, as a rule. Starting out, we're going to restrict the number of mini-CMCs that are approved per player. This may or may not change in the future.
The subraces that are currently available through this system are: Mag'har, Forest Trolls** (and other Trolls if you find the models), Taunka**, Broken***, Dragonmaw, Wildhammer* (optional), Dark Iron* (optional) and warlock minions!.

These races are not available to be played without the custom model, with the exception of Wildhammer* and Dark Iron Dwarves*.

If you think of something else that ought to be on the list, these will be treated on a case-by-case basis. The mini-CMCs cover subraces of the available races (excluding High Elves, who will remain regular CMCs due to their rarity) as well as faction-specific models that will become available with the other recent announcement. Otherwise, we'll start small with this and see how it goes. More races may be added to the list in the future!

*These are available without mini-CMC and won't count towards your mini-CMC total UNLESS you opt for one of the special models, which makes it count as a mini-CMC.
**This includes the female counterparts, even if females don't actually have special models. A female Taunka or Forest Troll will just use their base race's model but be profiled and count as their respective subrace and take up a mini-CMC slot as if they had special models.
***Broken don't have models by gender, so female Broken will have to use a standard male model.

How do you apply for a mini-CMC?

It's easy, really. You profile it and submit it as a Special Profile (in Private Discussion), along with the short application form provided below (which provides ModelID, amongst other things). If you aren't able to find a ModelID, the GM team is generally happy to help you find one by looking through NPC models in-game. If you know the name (or ID number) of a special NPC with a model you desire to use, just include that in the ModelID's stead and we'll fetch the ID for you. Keep in mind that most of the models available aren't customizable, but we'll endeavour to find customizable IDs if we can and if you find one that can be used, be sure to let us know about it!

If your profile is approved in PD, you'll need to get in contact with either @Loxmardin or @Reigen to customize your character for you. Go ahead and create the character on one of your accounts and either of the Overseers will help you ASAP with swapping your ModelID to your new custom race/model.

Code:
[b]Race:[/b] [Taunka, Broken, Dragonmaw, etc.]

[b]OOC race:[/b] [One of the standard races, corresponding to the subrace you've chosen.]

[b]Display ID Requested:[/b] [If you can't find a model name, ask a GM in-game to spawn and find the ID for you.]

[b]What inspired you to play this race and not the normal counterpart (if applicable)?:[/b] [We do want to make sure these characters are created with due consideration while they're just being introduced, so please give this some thought before completing your profile.]

[b]Special Mount:[/b] [Remember that this race may have different mounts that aren't easily achievable. (Talbuk, mammoth, tiger/panther, ect), if your character might need one of them, say so here and explain why, it might also be good to mention it in the profile.]

"and warlock minions!"

Does that go for demons that aren't bound to Warlocks, but happen to be of the same species? Unbound Voidwalkers, imps, etc, or do they have to belong to a Warlock for them to be a mini-CMC?

Oh man, unbound Demons(just the ones that can be pets, of course) would be SO epic.

Have the demon join the GM-led Burning Legion guild whenever one of us gets around to it, and go for it.

Edit: I am referring to the lesser, "demon pets" above, of course. Any of the bigger demons would be a regular CMC.

Edit2: You can try for independent as well, but the demon still has to be the "lesser" type, AKA the Warlock pet type. No Pit Lord sub-CMCs.

.. Oof, got a succubus profile gathering dust; Will it be plausible to profile her as independent, and later have her enslaved by a warlock? The player who I intended to RP her with has managed to utterly destroy his computer with repair times up to a month or so. It'd make for some interesting RP beforehand, maybe give her some enemies of the legion afterwards. Hrm.. All the possibilities.

Edit; Ran into a open-office on GMI, independence being a case-by-case basis, I'll do some edits and throw it the PD's way. See what happens!

Well, Psy has her answer, but yeah, demons can try for independent, but they will be under greater scrutiny than Burning Legion demons. New answer!

So, if I'm reading this right, females of races without models will use the male model? Or is "base race" like a normal tauren for lady taunka?

Also, for female broken, I'd suggest looking for some sort of item set to disable hair and features (horns) and just go with female Draenei. Female broken look pretty normal, but lack the distinctive visual silhouette of a Draenei proper, according to the comics.

I'll go digging in the npc item files...
But I know you can tweak the armor type flag, but would be possible to change the other models?

You will use the regular female model for sub-CMC races that do not have a unique female model. This will count against the amount of sub-CMCs you are allowed to have, as it wouldn't be fair if female models got a free pass and male models didn't.

This pleases Wind.

Wind must figure out a race to do.
Perhaps it is your imperfection that which grants you free will, that allows you to persevere against cosmically calculated odds. You prevailed where the Titans' own perfect creations have failed.

About unbound demons.

That is something to actually be discussed still, as it was originally suggested to only be bound warlock minions. We'll get back to you on that soon.

What about Burning Legion minions, since we now have access to Evil Factions?

Rather than independent ones.

Now, seeing as Taunka men come in blue, and Tauren females have a blue DK skin...

Might it be possible to use the blue tauren DK skin for taunka females? Save for a theoretical female Taunka DK, seeing a big, blue cow woman with a non-DK class would be a pretty clear visual indicator that they were not a normal Tauren. Saves some OoC/IC explanation, imo.
