i still vote for reduced mouse sensativity and forced 1st person with restricted vision for plate users! just look at christos profile picture! his screen would be like top 25% of screen = metal and bottom 50% of screen = metal... and only the bottom 25% of the top half would actually show anything... and maybe for shits and giggles we could block off some of that on the edges with more metal... also due to poor air flow his character should have a fatigue meter that fills rapidly and then his char gets extra slow or cant breathe and dies. yup thats my kind of realism!

Matey re-read what I typed, good helmet=not a big loss of vision.

Poor air flow? nah.

I never had a Great Helmet on, but the folks I know who wore one said that airflow was okay, the vision was alright, maybe a bit limited, but not THAT much. Only downside is that you can't really hear things.

Also If you know the model of the Faceplate, or Full Helm, you know that it's got a ton of holes.

ooooh cant hear eh? forcibly turn their volume down or just forcibly muffle it so its really not very helpful.

also, people in plate should have to walk in a feminine manner as only dickless people wear plate.  :mrgreen:

Larger slashing weapons like Nordic Swords & Axes would also do half bludgeoning damage due to the weight of force impacting armor.  Just like when a cop get shots while wearing bullet proof vest, its like getting side kicked in the gut, enough to break bone.

Some of the swords and axes need their weights increased and make their dmg to 'hack' which is some combo of cut & blundgeon dmg. (half & half, 2/3 & 1/3, etc)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCvOC2VwDc, perhaps the axe would have a bit more stagger due to the concentrated hit zone, NCS wouldn't do shit.

It's okay for children to see how people get impaled and hacked down, but GOD FORBID THEY SEE NAKED PEOPLE! THE HORROR!

The naked men might be okay, but naked women would be too much. Have you seen the models? Traumatizing.
