I don't have much to add, that's pretty cool. I will say though FPP character creation? Only if V can stand in front of a mirror while they look into the mirror to customize themselves but If I can't see what's going on, it's not fun anymore lol. The thing about the mirror is, how does V turn around to see what they look like from all angles, if their neck doesn't bend that way? This is why I think that some Third person needs to be there. I'm okay with it all being First person, but I will gladly take any third person CDPR can give me where it's absolutely needed (otherwise I'm not able to see what's going on, this would be a huge problem for me)Yes that it is agreeable. And I am okay with making every aspect of the game in FPP. I am even okay with making the character creation in FPP. But what is important to consider is that when you take something out, you have to give something else in return.
So removing any TPP instances from the game in favor of FPP mode in order to have more immersion does not mean that this immersion would magically happen just because we have no TPP scenes. As this trade-off would require an extra work from the devs in order to make these TPP instances more interesting and immersive in FPP instead.
Excluding TPP just for the sake of less work on animations or believing that it will achieve more immersion, simply by removing these TPP instances without putting more work in FPP, would only lead to quality reduction to the overall gaming experience. And I am certain that this is not the case with Cyberpunk. So if the devs found, for instance, that TPP is the best approach in cutscenes, then things will remain as it is. On the other hand, if they managed to make cutscenes look better in FPP, then they will do it.
Either using the old school method (mirror + backmirror or mirror + hand mirror), but i think by 2077 he would just have a front cam and a back cam (or surround cams) to project onto a display, maybe directly into his eyes, without an actual glass mirror.I don't have much to add, that's pretty cool.

Yeah I know that was a bit extreme , but I did have the same thought of yours about standing in front of a mirror. Character creation usually don't make sense to me anyway. I mean why we are creating a character from the first place? And who is making these character edits? But there are exceptions. Such as Saints Row 2 as the main character recovered from an explosion and went through extensive plastic surgery, which is the part where you go to the character creation. So these character alterations do make sense. Also you have Robocraft's first person build mode where you control a robotic arm and create your own robot piece by piece, and these customizations not only make sense, but also feel quite immersive.I don't have much to add, that's pretty cool.

Nice examples! In fact, I would really want this smart mirror in V's apartment
The format you use to write this is...This is one of the things that came to my attention.
I realize that the 48 minute demo was a work in progress and all but i feel like in the character customization there were things that were lacking. Especially in the character background and backstory type stuff. I wish there were more major events and other options to choose from!
I feel this just takes the role playing a bit down if we can't have full control of how our character acts or their origins and stuff. Then again it is a work in progress, we might of not seen everything.
Plus mirrors, driving, and photo mode. So it's not really pointless, but some might find it useful to them. The customization looks pretty basic so it's not likely people will be slaving away for hours on itNot really as this is a TPP game, bizarrely even for cut scenes. You will need to go into the equipment menu to see your lovingly tweeked toon so customisation is rather pointless.
I'm not understanding where you got that idea from the article. It's specifically detailing that various body parts will be completely interchangeable. So it's likely possible to have a male bottom and female top (as in body parts), or pre-made versions of such, meaning that transgender / hermaphrodite characters are completely possible. It also states that players can select the male or female V voice over (...VVO?...) no matter which body parts/type they select.If this article is correct does this mean there is no mix-and-match?
but but ma mix-it-up chick-dick character playthrough.
While it may not be select individual torso / hips / arms / legs / etc. (like Dragon's Dogma, for example), I imagine it will offer all the possible "combos". So, you could select a body type that was male, female, male build with female genetalia, female build with male genetalia, male build with breasts and male genetalia,Only from these two comments from the article.
‘We have the body type that you select and then the genitals will be determined by that,’
‘You can have a male or female voice with either body, but the genitals are defined by the body.’
I just got the feeling that this is litteral. Female body, female parts and vice versa. Just found it would be funny to be able to make the mix-it-up character. I surely would have a playthough with that option aswell as standard male and female playthroughs.
I'd imagine there's an "none" option for that. Doesn't seem sensible that there wouldn't be. (Unless they want it universal for aesthetic reasons.)I noticed the "circuits" lines were made straight on the character editor.
They should be added with the cyberware.
It doesn't looks that hot, and no point having them if you don't have any cyberware, unless it's some kind of disease like the chrome kids in Cybergeneration, but it feels random as it.
