TERA PC - General Discussion: Option to show weapon even with a back costume, please?
Costumes like scarves are cool but i like to see the weapon in the back of my character, hidding my weapon make weapons skins meaningless, a simple option similar to "hide helmet" that are present in many mmorpgs but to show the weapon in the back its all i ask

Funny thing, on movies your weapon will show with your back accesory equiped.

At least last time I saw one that was the thing.
There's already an option, it's called don't wear a back cosmetic...

Please, there's sooooo much more that they need to work on than this tiny thing. We don't need to "pass on this feedback."

If is this "tiny thing" than its easy to do
i agree with OP. i want to be able to see my weaponskin while wearing a back piece..
apparently HAIR is more important since there's a freaking"upswept hairdo" option in the game. please..
this should be an easy request, lets make it happen1
we have been waiting for an invisible back slot where it doesn't show the weapon for a long time. maybe they will come out with both cosmetic items at the same time.

I hope so i just want to see all the skins in my character and more weapons skins via fashion coupon shop only two axes for berzerker? really?
Problem i see with this, is that if you make a toggle to see the weapon on your back, while using a back slot accessory, it will cause severe clipping issues with the majority of the back slot accessories, specially those shields that come from the practical armor boxes.

They would need to create a brand new back slot accessory that can harmonize with the weapons on the back. Knowing how BHS works, that is the option that consumes less resources and time, while generating more income. Why? Because going through each currently existing back slot accessory, and changing the code so that some of them will harmonize with the weapons, while others dont, will take an incredible amount of time. It is the right choice, but in the eyes of BHS, the more time they spend, they more money they lose.

Basically what I would comment, but well, not like I was the only one with the same idea.

The deal is that we barely even have the body itself not clipping through... itself. Like, you can have some emotes that just makes body parts clip (in special hands passing through stuff), costumes clip every time for every reason, specially those goth dresses where hands go through.

If, and a big IF, you could life with a back costume there somewhat inside the weapon... or vice versa dunno which is which, it could be a quick code to do. But then again, I really doubt you would want that, the cool thing would be a cape covering the weapon, or contrary to that a weapon on top of the cape but nothing just going through, that in other hand, will require coding specific physics into the back accessory, and well, laser capes.

Between the two options - clipping through or weapon coming out of thin air, I kinda chose the later.

One thing tho that I would find really cool, and probably wouldn't be TOO challenging, is some type of visual effect when the weapon is drawn and you have a back accessory, like some glow on your hand and it shows up from that glow instead of just BANG it exists.

I dont care about clipping, this is something that happens, all games has some sort of clipping especially when we're dealing with 3d models with parts that have no colision, i just want an option to show my weapon and my back costume it doesnt matter if it clips, the hair clips in most of armours and they made a option to upswept hairdo

Would rather have a "Hide weapon" option...for when you don't want a weapon or a back accessory :O
Or a "hide weapon glow" option

Agreed...tired of not being able to see the details of the skins because of the damn wings and glow x.X

I've wanted a hide weapon glow for a long time, red wings don't look good on too many skins :(

At least we know who thinks they are in charge.

I doubt it would happen, but it's a nice thought.

Mu online has a similar option to set the level of the glow to show +5 (No glow) up to +9 (full glow)
This wish of players here is covered with moss already.
