Crawling with skins
Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 devblog.
Developing a mod is not cheap, especially because you can't legally sell a mod for a commercial game, which is why many mod teams are asking for donations to keep them going. We have always avoided that, but recently we found a loophole. Skins & customizable player models! It turns out it is perfectly legal to sell ingame items for a mod, as long as the mod itself remains free. Because of that, you will soon be able to buy Waffenkisten (tm) (Weapon crates) directly from the FH2 Launcher. These crates will come in various bundles and prices!
For an example, our "starter skin pack" will sell for $1.99/1.85€ that includes 2 random weapon skins. Buy as many as you can, because we have over 100 weapon skins in stock which will range from "Common" to "Experimental" rarity. Note that you cannot get the same skin more than once, our code has helped prevent that.
As you can see, cracking open crates can be a fun thing to do. Now look at what we have here!
Customizable player models is something we've been hard at work to implement this system! Currently, the only offer to include customizable player models is our fabulous "premium pack". It comprises of all of our weapon skins (100+), unique benefits, and, yes, those customizable player models!
As we all know, social progress today is achieved not through daring political protest or sensible legal change, but through inclusion of your social group in the soulless consumer product of your choice. Because of this, you will soon be able to choose the race (5 options), gender (15 options) and age (everything from Volkssturm to Volkssturm) for your ingame avatar.
To get a taste of our weapon skins, here is an ingame preview down below.
The StG44 "Velvet Dream" (Common)
The Sten MKII "Psychedelic" (Common)
The BAR "Hello Kitty" (Epic)
The Panzerschreck "Konsolenkrieg" (Rare)
The M1911 "Captain America" (Experimental)
We regret that we can't show you much more screenshots yet, since as they have yet to clear our progressive review. Good news again is that vehicle and aircraft skins will also be released in the future, as soon as we find a way to implement them without increasing texture load too much. We are also working on a kill tracking system, adding a notch to your guns buttstock for every 100 kills made with that model.
The weapons skins we have shown so far were made by a dev who has asked to remain unnamed.
