The title pretty much says it all, an option list (like the "change gas color") with different appearances on what the Power-Up will look like when you go to get it. Like, the Paintanator classic, floating in air sort of thing, or how the Original Jetpack looks, by just sitting around. Not a big issue, but I like to have it fit my level theme. Anyone?

Interesting idea, but may I make an alternate appearance changer?
Costume changer powerup, anyone?

So, I guess this is a dead thread since no one has responded in 4 days, but I would like to say that your idea is cool, too.
I forgot to say that last time.

Super_Dork, you can edit your post if you forget to say something. DPing is sort of frowned upon :)

So you'd want your paintinator just lie on the ground? What about putting it in a box?

Yeah, I like the idea of the character enhancements just lying on the ground or in a box or in whatever arrangement you like, rather than floating up & creating an unwanted light source; also, the jetpacks could have an adjustable lifetime, gas if you will, so you have a time limit with which to use them in & this has probably been repeated often enough, you should be able to render the Enhancement Remover invisible, seeing that thing is a real mood breaker.

I was (ninja)bumping this thread, dude, trying to help him out.
I've seen too many of my own go dead to let it happen to him.

I think the light should be tweakable as in normal light objects. :D

This is driving me insane in my current level.

So yeah, creating a sort of more NOT futuristic level but still having the Paintanator still looking as High-Tech can be is kind of annoying, lol.

Anyway, what about changing the Appearance of the actual Power-Up? (No worries, just throwing this out there) Just a thought anyways.

Tell me what you think...

...wasn't that the actual idea of the thread? And I proposed the paintinator just to be lying on the ground, as the Tether'd Jetpak.

Uhhh, no, the original was change the way you see the Power-Up, e.g change from floaty future thing, to just lying on the ground.

What I am throwing out though is to change the appearance of the Power-Up itself, like for instance Paintanator looks like an M4, but, thats kind of a bad idea anyway, lol :p

Oh. True weapons. Followed by blood 'n' gore? If we has weapwnz, wouldn't take long before the kidz (not only them but...) wanted the effects.

I didn't say 'blood and gore' I don't even like the fact that most games (including games like Battlefield) are being more intense. Thats why LittlBigPlanet is a game for everyone. And I only said M4 because thats all I could think of at the time. (What I mean is have the ability to change the appearance of the Power-up, like the Paintonator look like an M4.)

Apologies if I sounded rude. :frightened:

You didn't, but I can see it... well, if Mm makes it comical enough, what do I have against razor-sharp katanas?

Um... you have to shamelessly advertize your thread even when it's hardly relative? D:

I do like the idea of the actual power-up changing shape/'costume'. I wouldn't mind an old-fashioned paint rifle :P Oh, and the 'power-up in a box' seems like quite a cool idea as well, if you could randomise it (emitter anyone?) It could make for some varied boss battles- fly up and pop the brain with a jet pack or blast him out the sky... or even turn up the water and use an air tank to swim up

I didn't have another thread, but just a comment that went ignored.

Well there is already another thread if you care to dive in the pool of thread pages. You'll probably get more responds there :D

Direct control seat and a sackbot dressed as you want it?

No, what I'm talking about is a powerup that actually changes your costume, so that way you could share your custom costumes, etc.

There's another thread discussing if Costumes could be put inside Prize Bubbles. Head there :D
