Re: Userbars

I've got to say one thing I've noticed since starting these userbars is there are a lot of factions in EP. There is a lot of things that people can identify with. I'm not saying this is wrong but my todo list is starting to get as high as a mountain. I will continue to plow through though as I see people like my work and I like to see my work being used.

I noticed no one has up-rated you, or at least not that you post. How does the Jovian Bioconservative feel about @-rep? I was granted one by repmanager via The Doctor, and the autonomists are all about sharing.

Re: Userbars

I was wondering if I should include the various alien races in my userbar list. Of course I would start off with everyone's favourite slime the Factors.

Spoiler: Highlight to view

I can also include the ETI with the proviso that people would have to include spoiler tags around them.

I think I will create the ETI userbar but I'm going to call it Extraterrestrials and have Intelligence as part of the background.

Re: Userbars

What about an Eclipse Phase userbar, so we can use it outside this forum (and inside, too)?

Great job, by the way!

I agree. I've actually been planning this already. I was also going to make a Battletech userbar, Shadowrun userbar, and Pathfinder userbar (the other RPGs that I play). I will post the Eclipse Phase one here, but the rest you will have to find on my website.

Re: Userbars

The second draft of the Eclipse Phase userbar is done. This one is at least respectable for use on other forums now. I just need to clean up the animation (which isn't that bad for my first time) a bit and I'm done. Enjoy everyone!

If I had to guess, it's because the forum is stored in SQLite? Pictures get stored as BLOBs in most db systems, and they can act differently than text or integer values. It gives systems hicups on occasion.

From what I can tell, the forums appear to be implemented with the standard Drupal forum extension, and the website itself is a Drupal instance. I do not think that Drupal supports the use of SQLite as its core database but there are a few extensions out there (of which the forums are not one) that use it to store configuration information.

That looks to me more like an HTML markup glitch. The same thing happened to me when I was setting up my forum signature.

Re: Userbars

C-Rep +1 for the Eclipse Phase bar.

And I think Carl would make an excellent guy for the Clanking Masses. And the reason I think that they should get a userbar is that it's a separate identity from just using a synthmorph. It's a combination of enforced economic difference, and a new form of racism in a transhuman setting that leads to a distinct subcultural identity. The Steel Morphs from Sunward are a good example of this, being formerly Case and Synth morph using egos who have achieved the financial means to be able to afford a Splicer or other biomorphs, but choose to take a synthmorph as a sign of cultural identification.

Personally, I think that's an angle I would like to work when / if I get to run an EP game. The rise of a distinct synthmorph pan-identity on the inner worlds as a reaction to the culture of discrimination against them by the more fortunate biomorph users would be an interesting recurring subplot.

I've updated the list and divided them into categories for everyone's convenience. Which gets me to another point, if anyone one wants to help create userbars, I'm more then happy to host them on my site for everyone's benifit. Just PM me if you want to help.

Re: Userbars

Great stuff. Well, in the interests of helping you find specific images faster...

A lot of the morphs could simply pull images from the Sample Characters. The Futura, Remade, Sylph, Flat, Synth, Bouncer and Swarmanoid in particular. I think there's an image of Furies in action on page 191, and a blow-up on pages 20 and (arguably) 182 of a Menton deep in thought. Page 39 has a reasonable Exalt. Another Sylph or Exalt on page 139 and on 285. Pod on page 142. Page 55 shows a decent Egocast or Upload. Ruster on page 133. Novacrab Pod Morph on page 124 and 276. Avian Mercurials on pages 198 and 387. Reaper Morph on page 358. Exsurgent on page 366. Possible Exsurgent or higher being on page 217. Factors on page 373.

Pages 16 and 17 hold some decent Fall images, if they're needed. Transhuman/drone fighters during the Fall on page 35, for action. A fleet on pages 112 and 113. Orbital shuttle on page 349. Pandora Gate on page 377.

Pages 47, 195, 205 and 238 (even 285) have decent images for scanners or Muses. Asteroid miners on page 22. Freerunners on page 179. Hacker/programmers on page 185 and 250. Psychosurgeon on page 210. Cloaked intruder on page 227.

"Clone tanks" on page 120. Ultratech ship on page 235.

Page 77 for Anarchists or @rep. Iktomi architecture on page 110, along with some cool spacesuits. Possible exoplanet on pages 350 to 351.

Space elevator on pages 170 and 171. Hab images on page 69, 89 (Octavia, on Venus), 94 (Olympus, on Mars), 98 (Amalthea, in the Jovian Republic), 107 (probably Titanian), 128 and 129 (floating cities), 266 and 267 (rotating ring) and 281 (space station).

TITAN zones or weapons could use the front-cover image of the tentacle going after the bouncer morph. Killsat/TITAN-containment forces on page 355.

Re: Userbars

Despite my wide-ranging set of images identified above, I'd go as much as possible with anything that posters might identify with: factions, morphs, philosophies and attitudes. In particular, I'd go with anything that suggests a particularly strong personal choice or that has strong emotional resonance.

So I'd suggest hyper-evolution, singularity, anarcho-capitalism, hypercapitalism or morphological freedom before some of the less extreme personal motivations and morphs like Fury, Remade, Menton or Futura (or even Reaper, Swarmanoid or Infomorphs (which you already have, as Infolife)) as opposed to "just" Flat or Splice. You seem to have most of the really ideologically strong factions represented, so if you do anything there I'd stick with prominent players (Guangxi) or really interesting concepts (Pax Familiae, the Synergists).

Oh, and while I'm not all that interested in grim stuff, you haven't got an Exsurgent userbar yet. (Shrug.)

Actually, a userbar that effectively said "This is a basilisk hack. Shield your eyes, pathetic mortals..." would be kind of humorous. So would an Exsurgent Virus ("Please send me to your ten closest friends. And then your next ten. And your next... No, this is not a request..."). Or, alternatively, open-source anti-virus/Firewalls -- courtesy of the anonymous Prometheans -- aimed at last generation TITANtech.

Or a userbar that showed a normal morph, or something more on the edge, like Exhumans or even Infolife, being written over as it's replaced, pixel by pixel, by the Exsurgent tag. P) ;)

Re: Userbars

Seriously, though, the TITAN Quarantine Zone on Mars might be a useful userbar, more as a statement of place or condition (or humor) than anything else.

The mysterious killsats around Earth, representing some kind of absolute "firewall" against overt TITAN incursions, might also be workable as a tag, as could Arenamontanus' Trait (drawn from Inception) "militarized subconscious."

Something for Asyncs could be useful, for that matter.

Oh, and Augmented Reality/VR and/or a time speedup tag could indicate a very powerful state of being, though to some extent that's covered by Infolife.

Actually, developing this, a bar on the general location could be a good idea, and one "quick" to do as there are plenty of images of the Solar System's planets. I'd say one for each planet, one for the Sun nearzone and one for Extropia would be more than enough. :)

Re: Userbars

I'm staying away from creating location userbars due to the enormous work (as there are hundreds of locations) (though I will post them if people send me any). I will add Asyncs and The Mesh (AR, XP, ...). My idea for the Infected is to have a pile of dust on the ground, a person walks over the dust, it engulfs them and transforms them into a TITAN monster. A Killsat then nukes the person into a pile of dust (rinse and repeat).

While the exsurgent userbar won't be an existing or future userbar, I am taking this idea. The userbar will look closest to the Flat userbar (human icon sign) with the caption "Normal" beside it. The userbar will then be engulfed in exsurgent tentacles and the caption will be morphed into "Infected". A flash of light (Killsat) will reveal the "Normal" userbar again.
