Thread: AO Universe Developer Interviews #1: Kintaii

    Funcom employee AO Universe Developer Interviews #1: Kintaii

    In the first of a new series of developer interviews, the guys over at AO Universe have sat down with... well... me to get things started. In this first interview, I'll be discussing roleplaying in AO, the new PvP playfield, and giving them an exclusive look at the brand new birthday content headed your way soon!

    Sounds kinda like the one year offer is only for new subscribers, I hope it's not though. Looks like some neat stuff on the way. Yay for my org's new city that has some room to spare, we should be able to fit that building, whatever it is.

    Fun read

    You know the /rp thing? Why don't you just make it so that players with that mode active automatically subscribes to the news channels and other RP related stuff? mayme make a [Faction - RP Talk] channel. Maybe this'll deterr normal PvE/PvP players to impose as RP'ers.. I think the RPers would love that

    Yeah, sorry about the lack of poke....but you know how it is, never poke a man. Especially if he's in position to nerf you to hell and back again. Anyway, you might want to mod Genele's post...or maybe just poke her to do it herself

    For the new Personal Mech ""Players signing up for a year's subscription to Anarchy Online at a special price will receive all expansions *and* the new Personal Mechanized Vehicle variant, all in one special package!"

    What happens to those already signed up for the Year's Subscriptions already?

    I needs one of those programs to read text out loud. Kintaii would help me sleep then.

    Stick What? You mean there are not enough PvP-ers ... to get the BS running? ... how come ...

    thanx for this interview and the very nice previews & informations, kin !

    ps : while you're at a 0% PVP playfield, any plan for reviving Will to fight ? incredible place, huge, nicely designed ... why not use it as alternate BS map (e.g.) ? lot of people suggested to recycle it anyways, if not already in the tube, do something ^_^ !

    It would have to speak like a redneck and randomly cus every other word, as that is how the real Kintaii speaks. Also it would have to take a smoke break every hour. :P

    "I know who coded pet pathing... and when I see him I say "/follow" and I start waling in to walls :P"

    The "Trolls" option is incorrect. The term trolls is not used to describe the gathering of information on the Internet.

    Heard him in interviews. He wasn't bad.

    To be honest, I hope those cardboard boxes time out and vanish when the birthday week is over. Random social gear is fine but lots of people wearing cardboard boxes on their heads for the entire year is crossing some kind of line as I see it.

    Eh stuff like that tends to go out of fashion after a little while. Think of the panda heads for instance

    Hmmm...how much space with that new building take, and can you say if it is a buffing building or otherwise beneficial to an org, or just a social structure? A lot of org cities are filled just holding the regular buffing structures so some of us may need to make choices regarding this new structure.

    An, yeah, boxes on heads year round would be -really- annoying...

    On another note, I see that Kintaii says they are in the 'early stages' of developing the new intro for starting chars. Since Means has said in the past that this intro will have been in-game and debugged before the new engine is introduced that tells me that the actual engine arrival will be very deep into the year...
