View Full Version : Character Enhancements/Power-Ups Compilation Thread

We have so many ideas always popping up regarding character enhancements and power-ups that we would like to suggest... I thought it would be cool to compile everything together in one single thread for our good friends over at Media Molecule and for Sony (and hey, even ourselves!). As we all know, they occasionally browse forums to see what people want to have in the game.

Feel free to contribute, whether it is a new idea written down on this thread or just a link to a previous thread (even if it's not yours). I'll edit this first post and add the ones you guys suggest. Some of these I had already mentioned before on a previous thread (wayyy back), but they have a more elaborated description this time around. If you suggest one, I cannot give you any credit, except to link the Power-Up of the post that suggested it. This is because not every idea is original... You might have thought up of the Paint Machinegun, but perhaps someone else had mentioned it last week.



Psychic Helm - Sackpeople would be granted the ability to lift and move things "mentally" . Perhaps add the Helm an Editable Property called "Psychic Strength" that determines the maximum weight the bearer can lift, as well as "Range", which determines how far a player can move an object. The Psychic Lift could be activated by clicking the R3 button. Once activated, the player has control of a Cursor (much like the one in Create Mode for the Pop-It). He/she highlights an object, confirms with another click of the R3, and cancels/releases with the Circle button. Movement of the object in question would be handled with the Right Control Stick to allow character movement while having an object lifted. However, unlike the Cursor found in Create Mode, players will not be able to resize, copy or mirror objects, but they could shift the object between layers and could also rotate it with L2/R2.



Plasma Jacket - With the new MGS Pack, those pesky Plasma Balls have been zapping us all into oblivion! Protective gear would be good, like the Plasma Jacket. Equip it and the player is treated with a small healthbar at the side of the screen, the color corresponding to the appropriate player. The healthbar would be composed of "Health Blocks", which determine how many Plasma Balls the Sackperson can be hit with before the Plasma Jacket disappears. The Editable Property here would be, as mentioned before, the Health Blocks. The higher the number, the more hits they can withstand.



Magnet Boots - The ability to stick to Metal materials is available with these, and of course, that includes walls and even the ceiling! One simple Editable Property could be set for this one, called "Magnetism". If it is set too high, players standing on Metal will not be able to jump and will run much slower, but will ensure they do not detach from said surface. Useful if you're standing on the piston of uber doom. Crazy puzzles and awesome upside-down platforming could take place. (Suggested here (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=60625&postcount=1))



Gravity Boots - Want to jump higher? It's now possible with the Gravity Boots. Just like the Magnet Boots, these have a very similar Editable Property titled "Gravity Strength". Instead of the value being only positive, it can also be negative. When positive, these make you slower and you jump less higher, but will securely keep you close to the ground. However, set it to negative, and you'll be one Mario of a Sackperson! The lower the number, the higher you jump. Keep in mind gravity is centered towards the bottom of the screen, unlike the Magnetic Boots that can stick onto the sides and undersides of Metallic objects. (Suggested here (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=60625&postcount=1))



Rubber Boots - Put these babies on and you will not be affected by the hazardous Lightning Danger Tool...if you're standing on it (running into it does not apply!). Not that deep or complex, but allows for nice puzzles to be set.



Spiked Boots - Similar to the Rubber Boots, Spiked Boots will ensure Sackpeople do not slide on glass and they also aid when climbing steeper slopes otherwise slippery without them. An Editable Property could be "Sharpness", which determines the strength the boots have on a slippery surface. However, just, be careful with fellow Sackpeople below you. (Suggested here (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=60625&postcount=1))



Yo-Yo - Functions like a grappling hook. Use R stick to aim and R1 to throw, as with paintinator. If it hits a grabbable object it sticks for as long as sackboy holds R1. While the yo-yo is grabbing a material, sackboy can manipulate it with the R stick. You could have sackboy swing across a gap, or grab a far off object and pull it towards him or toggle a switch. I'd also allow it to grab point bubbles. In create mode, you can set the maximum length of the yo-yo. (Suggested here (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=174347&postcount=34))


Note: By "Editable Properties" I do mean for them to be Editable in Create Mode.

i think a good powerup would be a melee weapon. we can kinda do melee already (jumping/grabbing), but what if they gave us a sword (or axe/bat/club/frying pan) and the melee equivalent of the paint switch.

this could change enemies even more. no more jumping on brains, now you can beat the bejesus out of them. then, you could also make secret destructible walls or just place some boxes/barrels that have bubbles inside of them.

i don't know about you guys, but i think that would be awesome

I want a suit for swimming if I set my liquid to "harmful".

I want some editable gaz conditions. It would be nice to enter a room and Sackboy could only survive for some time because of the gaz. Here again we could have a gaz suit.

Gas that wasn't instantly lethal could be quite useful. In the meantime you can do it yourself. Put the gas in a thin layer and create a timer (mag key on a piston). If Sackboy stays in the room for too long fill it with gas in the thick layer so he dies and then have it reset so he can try again.

Yeah but I would need to make gaz fill the room gradually, moving gaz. Because Sackboy would prevent gaz from spawning one shot.

Yo-Yo: Character enhancement. Functions like a grappling hook. Use R stick to aim and R1 to throw, as with paintinator. If it hits a grabbable object it sticks for as long as sackboy holds R1. While the yo-yo is grabbing a material, sackboy can manipulate it with the R stick. You could have sackboy swing across a gap, or grab a far off object and pull it towards him or toggle a switch.

I'd also allow it to grab point bubbles.

In create mode, you can set the maximum length of the yo-yo.

Nice man, this would be amazing to have in the game. but i dont know, seems to be replacing the string + sponge + grab + fire pit = success kind of thing

Like the paintinator, the creator would design challenges based on giving the enhancement in their levels. Even in cases where it is just used to replace a sponge on string, I think the player gets more satisfaction out of aiming and swinging himself than by using a premade swing. (So long as it is well implemented and not frustrating.)

In addition, this allows for challenging, mid-jump swings. Like jumping and shooting with the paintinator, sackboy could throw the yo-yo in midair. This potentially means swinging from one grab material, letting go at the peak of your jump and then aiming the yo-yo at the next grab material before you fall.

Rather than just replacing the sponge on string platforming element, this opens up new opportunities for creators. Especially, because sackboy can retract or extend the string length using the R stick once it has caught. You could make a level where sackboy must swing like spiderman. You could use these to make vertical challenges as an alternative to elevators. One can even make a really difficult challenge with moving grab material that sackboy must aim for in order to swing across an obstacle.

I think the Yo Yo is a great idea! Maybe MM could make a whole new material for it to be grapple-able, Slime maybe? Or Fly paper?
Maybe you could edit the strength of those materials so you can only stay on for a certain amount of time before you drop off?
Also what would be really cool (slightly pointless) but if you could do tricks with your Yo Yo like the gravity pull, the forward pass or the breakaway (yes I did google "Yo Yo tricks" to come up with those.) Anyway, maybe when you have the Yo Yo gadget equipped you press L3 or something and you go into a little trick mini game.

The tricks sound neat. Maybe it could be implemented similar to the head/waist movements? While you have the enhancement, pressing R3 or L3 can toggle between head, waist and yo-yo instead of just head and waist.

The ability to increase/decrease size of sackboy.
(can lift heavier objects/get into smaller sections)

A simple flashlight could be adding a lot.
pitchdark level, and using your flashlight will help you get trough the level,
kill ghosts with it and find hidden treasure.
hm.. sounds like "luigi's mansion"

This is a great idea. :)

A handheld torch could be controlled in the same way as the Paintinator - a torch-sensitive switch would be neat to go along with it, so when you passed your torch over an object you could have something happen.

Small Wings - Equips Sackboy with replica wings, allowing him to keep himself in the air for longer.

I think this is a brilliant idea, rather than a double jump, or the ability to actually fly around via jetpack, be able to sort of glide, staying in the air for longer, gradually falling. Knuckles style.

I have the solution for all of your projectile needs.

Handheld emitters.

Looks kinda like a paintinator, but you can choose what kind of object you want to come out of your gun.

Another idea, paint buckets. Ammo for your paintinator. Can only be used once. Disappears after you would past it.

Hover Boots: When you put these on, you can hover over short distances before falling (think Hover Boots in Zelda). Editing it can increase the amount of time you could stay afoot, and there could be a colored clock in the corner of the screen when in the air telling you how much more time you have.

That's like the Gravity boots, isn't it? I see what you mean but it's almost the same.

Hey Bionic Commando is comming out next month. So i thought that this could be the perfect opportunity to give away a bionic arm via a DLC package. It is basically the same as the Yo-Yo.

But i see the conflict of this though. If they would include a costume, then both, the costume and the new enchancement, would include the arm. That would be weird...

But i hope they will release something like that one day because it would add much to the game.

HAT WITH A TORCH
Just for cinematic purposes to illuminate very dark levels from your sackboy. You can tweak the torch brightness/radius from the pickup.

CLIMBING PICK
A little pick held in in each hand. If you grab a grabbable object, you can shimmy up, down and along it's faces. Lets you slowly climb up sheer faces and lets you crawl along the ceiling. Slows movement speed when climbing.

That's all I could come up with that hasn't been mentioned already.

Mighty gloves- Sackboy dons gloves with spikes.
With the edition of the dig switch, Sackboy and use these to dig through solid material. the dig switch can be placed on any material. You can dig through any material, but ONLY if it has this switch on it. Thus you can make large passageways underground from a object that has this switch but the surrounding walls do not.

Not different enough from a regular paintinator to merit extra development.

Here is your solution: Make a paint bucket object out of dissolve material and stickers. When you grab a paint bucket, it triggers a one-shot emitter to emit a single Paintinator.

Think of it from a developer's point of view. If it can be done already with existing tools, there's no reason to write a completely new tool which involves modelling, texturing, coding, and lots of QA testing.

I was thinking this, but not the whole switch complication- have it so you can only dig through soft materials. (sponge, cardboard, polystyrene).

The grappling hook gets my vote. I'd like the hook to have either a seperate target or a specific material it can hook into though, rather than be able to grapple onto anything. I guess they could make it so it only grapples on to any grabbable material.

The teleport gun would be a good one too. Initially, i thought LBP was going to be a platformer where you could actually interact, introduce and change objects as you were actually playing. Having played the game, it'd be actually pretty useless, you'd end up just building platforms over any challenge. Having a teleport gun that can move specific objects around, (but only objects already built into the level) is a pretty good way to introduce some of that kind of 'customisation as you play' vibe. It might upset the balance of the game too much though.

What about a Sackboy "collar" that changes the appearance of sackboy: the editables would be height, allowing sackboy to fit in smaller gaps or bigger gaps depending, can only be took off via a anti enhancement thingummy, "Fatness" like the more food sackboy eats in a food level the fatter he gets and the lower he can jump, this would be useful for, the height idea could make levels alot longer than normal by shrinking sackboy down

I think a cool pick up would be the flashlight. Once picked up, the flash light could be aimed with the right stick, and you could turn it on and off with the R1 shoulder button. It could be used to help you find your way through darkness, or search for clues in dim lighting. I think this would be a good power-up, because it is simple and has a lot of potential. Please consider it! Exelcior!!

1. A hand-held camera power up, which sackboy would hold in his hands. That allows you to have split-screen if played locally, or separate screens if played online.
2. A RC-Car power up. Your sackboy would hold the RC-Controller in his hands. You'd control it with the right stick.

These are mine
Gravity powerup that changes how high sackboy can jump
A Growth powerup that makes sackboy bigger/smaller

HERE ARE MY IDEAS...please add them to the main page if they are worthy of it:

1.Emitter Gloves - imagine the possibility of going into a level, with a giant boss to fight but the creator has made the brain protected and no paintanator life bar. you then see a pair of gloves as a power up. you equip the power up, your sackboy has his hands in like a kamehameha stance. and when you press R1 he shoots his hands out and comes a GIANT BOMB flying out to destroy the giant boss. so my idea is the emitter gloves where you would put the power up there, and just like the jetpack be able to tweak it in many ways. and since it is EMITTER gloves that means you could select whatever object you have in your popit at the moment to add to the emitter for that specific emitter glove and then make a different emitter glove with a different object. and of course you could color coat it to make easier to identify.

2.JETPACK SKINS - tired of the only means of flight being a jetpack? why is sackboy only get to experience a jetpack? why can't he have some nice ANGEL WINGS or something cool looking to make him fly....my idea of jetpack skins would be to replace your jetpack with WORKING wings or something else that could fly...so instead of having a metal jetpack in your back shooting exhaust why not have wings that flap realistically and no smoke clouds under it? wouldn't that be fun now? ;)

Flashlights and grappling hooks are all cool. but i can think of a few cool things too.

Proton Pack/laser shoots like the paintinator, but in a constant stream. the lenth and strenth of the laser can be tweaked as well as the ability to 'wave' away from the target similar to a proton stream. (ghostbuster pack should have had this :( )

Sticky Gloves allows sackboy to climb up vertical walls.

magic potion makes sackboy shrink/grow run faster/slower or even change the costume he's wearing. (because you don't play through a zombie apocolypse level wearing a spongebob costume. of course you cant leave the level wearing the costume you got from the potion if it has unbought DLC)

fire hose/emp/leaf blower can unlethalise objects (sorry if someone already said this)

This is more of an amusing costume, but who else wants their sackboy to be able to play a guitar? Moving your right arm up/down strums, and your left arm's left/right position controls the pitch. Perhaps it could even come in different varieties, like an acoustic one and an electric one or something.

sounds like the perfect opportunity for some ROCKBAND DLC

also on that note here is another idea of mine

SACKBOY CLONE
basically an AI sackboy that would follow you around and would react to switches and buttons that you would program to radiate a certain frequency that only that sackboy could respond to (frequency being a color in the switch and different colors affect the same colored switches) you would select the costume for the sackboy and it would deploy out of the costume booth (another idea of mine, we'll get to it soon ;) ) which would prove useful for some levels. especially using it as a CPU character on versus levels like racing levels, fighting, and co-op.

COSTUME BOOTH
basically it would be the booth that would spawn your first AI sackboy clone...but it has another purpose. imagine walking into a watchmen level that was made to look like a movie set...the level creator made a director who told you to dress up as rorshach and get on the set immediately...you walk into trailer made by the creator and there it is...a light up locker with a special GLOW to it. you walk into it...the booth door closes and the booth shakes up a bit...suddenly you walk out looking like rorshach and you head on to do the level. now imagine this concept with the ability to upload your own custom costume into the machine. and for those of you who don't own any of the DLC would still get the costume except without those parts showing up and such.

basically the machine could be edited like the PRIZE BUBBLE in which you select a costume from your pop-it to upload and such.

Or if you don't have the DLC, you could put on the costumes, but not be able to save it, and it would get taken off when you leave the level. A wind feature would also be cool. I would push sackboy and light objects around, and the speed could be modified.

but how would it differentiate a ninja costume from the millions of costumes people make?

i don't think there would a point to it since most people can just put a spotlight object and when it catches you make an alarm for not being a ninja

....but i did like the suggestion of not being able to save the costume with no DLC users

I think a flashlight would be cool for dark levels. You can grab a flashlight power-up just like the paint-gun. and aim it with the R stick. You can put a switch on objects. So when you aim your flashlight at the object the switch enables, on/off, direction, one-shot, and speed. I think that would be cool!

Grappling hook naturally. I'd like to see a different type of grappling hook to a yo-yo though, one that you can't retract. So when it hits the wall/ceiling, the distance you are to it is the length of the rope and you can swing and such but the length stays the same. Probably one shot only.

The ability to retract your grappling hook might make it very over powered and difficult for creators to contain the player, especially with the ability to disengage it at speed and fling themselves to places you don't want them to get to.

i have figured out on how Mm could make it possible to hold a paintinator and a jet pack. Just make the jet pack attached to the paintinator and have the paintinator have more of a turret feel shotting faster and or being automatic. When you hit circle you will lose boh the jet pack and he paintinator because it is one item

Aloty of theese suggestions are not needed.

" ELectric boots that make you immune from electricity hazzard "

There are allready ways to emulate this. By simply emitting a thin invisible darkmatter floor over electricity or whatever hazard.

" Gravity boots "

There is allready ways to make peopel jump higher or emulating low gravity. A gravity manipulation tool were you can see the gravity strenght and center would be more usefull: But i bet there would be extremly many simmulair " low gravity bomb survivla levels " or so. Because if making good levels is to easy. We will have anotehr trend.

look at the bomb survivals. Unless you are a total noob you can make a top class bomb survivla within a few hours at most. The original bomb survivla level ( whatever that was) Was propably a great level. But it was to easy to make.

Adding stuff like low gravity or ninja rope would open up more gameplay possibilitys. But it would be to easy to make decent levels and we would be stuck with even more tedius lbp trends. Why do you think " jump 20 jumps challenge " and " when the bomb fell" and " a level that plays it self " and " the amazing roller coaster " and " the motorcross race " kind of level have been so populair ... Because they are decently fun and enjoyable for casual players,, WHILE they are very easy to make.

It allmost doesent even require and logic skill with switches. Players will often be happy with the plain material even without any sticker work. And despite how many of theese trend levels there are people simply wont get tired of it.

Thats why the paintator was so great. None of the current tread even has anything to do witht he paintator in some weird way. It is simply to hard to make for instance bosses with the paintator that would suit casial players, and thatīs why they are not as common.

I bet we will get tired of all " water survival levels " within 2 months after it is realesed unless the water is to hard to use. MM Should make things possibel. Not easy. Once the water is out someone will get a great idea that is unfortunately easy to copy,,,,, Just like the bomb survival levels,,,, And yet another tedius trend.

first we will have jetboats race trends. Then we will have weat bomb survival trends. Then we will get " swim trough 20 holes " trends. All the trends atm will be able to use the water and it will become terribly tediuos..

The more harder somethign is to make. The better.

I like the yo-yo and magnetic boots, but the other ones just seem a little too much like periodic god modes that allow you a little too many ways to get outta things cheaply. Thats my opinion, but other than that, these are some seriously good ideas for Mm to take into consideration!

CartoonPiranha
12-25-2009, 09:16 PM
I like the idea of being able to grapple friends for teamwork/revenge purposes; why not just treat it like a long-range grab, that can attach to anything you can grab? I also feel that it should be fixed-length once fired, to avoid the aforementioned overpoweredness.

As to the hazard-proofing upgrades like rubber boots, I agree that these can already be emulated easily enough without upgrades. And as for low-grav boots, I think that setting gravity as an environmental condition, like lighting and fog, would be more useful. Lastly, if gravity is an environmental condition with an adjustable direction, you wouldn't need magnetic boots either.

In short, I'm all for the grappling hook/yoyo, the torch, the splitscreen, the handheld emitter and my own guitar suggestion (naturally :) ), and am open to convincing over the pyschic helm, but generally think that the others could be achieved in better ways.

Hi i'm BlackThorndust(PSN - ad me if you like)
i recently got the water pack from lbp and i have to say its really nice.
but my idea came when playing an final fantasy 7 level where you had to fight a boss ad the end.

the boss fights in this game are fun but easy.
so i came up with a diffrent 'life' tool for sackboy , its the same as the items some bosses contain so that you have to use the paint gun to destroy it.
i was thinking of giving sackboy a tool called Bossbattle armor.
you can think of it as a glove witch displays a life bar underneath the character or in a corner.
this would also provide for matches like king of the hill so the game is also able to have a 2 vs 2 gameplay.

then i had an idea for the hand tools we get for example Cole's lightning sphere.
i bought these recently and i think they could make em more fun .
so why not make em like a paintgun ecept this one schoots lightning spheres when you move the analog that way?
(bluesphere)

for the red on i rather had a destruction or schielding idea.
still working on that , this could provide the bosses with a health bar displayed ad the top witch you can depleat that way this would provide is with more harder boss battles ofcourse once sacks meters gone he respans from the respawn point and such can still stay in it.

(note im not trying to transform the game just ad some nice stuff)

sinds i bought the water pack you get the dive tool with it wel i was thinking of making the armor that way to and like that you can get more sorts of weapons and tools

also i think we schould get real sackboy characters instead of paper pictures to display text.
i was thinking how you could easily make em do something then i thought of this:

a bar has 3 spaces [x][][] , then press square and say "people1" moves 1 square ahead> [][x][] continue+1 >flip
then he will walk that path and interact with text ones you get close
so what do you think of these idea's?

I think an Invincibility powerup would be nice, Like Mario's Starman. It'd be good if it was tweakable so you could change what could/couldnt kill you (fire/electricity/plasma/gas/spikes/drowning) Also, It would not protect you against getting squashed, as that'd break the level (like Mario still dies when he has a star and falls in a hole)

I like the Handheld Emitter glove idea, and the grappling hook idea, they're awesome

Some other good Power-ups would be Hazmat Suits giving you the ability to resist horrible gases and Electro Sappers which are single use Power-ups with the ability to stun Protected Creature Brains for several seconds then it dies off. They can be placed by approaching the object with the Protected Creature Brain and then pressing and holding R1, then let the Sapper do the work!

octopus_567
03-19-2010, 07:03 PM
I have a few ideas...
NIGHT/DAY VISION GOGGLES
these would decrease or increas the darkness, lighting, color correction in fact everything to do with lighting in the level! only the sliders would be different when tweaking. they're in the middle in the first place. that is the current lighting while the sackboy runs over the enchancements. left is DECREASE and right is INCREASE! So for example if it's pure darkness and yo u nudge the slider all the way to the right then it'll be pure... brightness? but if you nudge it to the left nothing will happen since it's already at it's darkest.
WATER GUN
like the paintinator but with each shot the water level increases slightly. in the tweak menu you have a slider to decide how much you want to increase each shot and also that... thing that changes the amount of times it can be shot. unlike the paintinator it cam be carried in water... WITH SCUBA GEAR ON!
THE GRABBER
This can change which materials you can grab! it appears as a robotic arm and in the tweak menu you can deicde which materials you can grab and which you can't.
WHEELCHAIR
with this you can go across all lethalized(except gas)objects for a certain amount of time. again, tweak menu. determines the amount of time you have on lethalized objects and how fast it is.
HAND EXPLOSIVE
if you pick this up it appears as a bag. if you hold R1 down then a little cursor appears. you can move it to aim and bring it nearer to the sackboy for less power in the throw and further away for more power. once it impacts with something it explodes. tweak menu: explosion size and ammo.
THE LIGHTER
allows you to set anything near to sackboy(EVEN THE FLOOR) on fire. just hold R1 to get a cursor which can select anything near sackboy and BOOM! it's on fire! it could really at to the competitive side of levels.

hope you can include some of these in the first post! thanks!(sorry for typos)

04-30-2010, 01:33 AM
All these gun ideas are cool, they should just add a tweak option to the paint gun and it could hold the functions like the yoyo, water gun, etc...i would love if they let you tweak the paint gun and edit the sounds as well!!!! i understand they wanted to keep it pg by having it a paint gun but there are some pretty gory levels out there haha. Leaving it open to customization i think would keep it open for pg.
OH and a bow and arrow function (press and hold kind kind of thing...) they've already shown they can produce arc via the paint gun's paint balls
i want bullets XD, they all ready have the pistol sound!!!

oh and melee weapons would be nice.... maybe adding a basic three swing combo by just pressing R1? iunno just a thought and that would have to DEFINITELY have to be tweak-able leaving it open for futuristic and medieval based levels!!!

When you get it, a bubble is formed around your sackperson, and he will be able to bouce around and pass over fire/eletricity intact. Would last as long the creator sets it to, when you fall on the water or pass through an enhancement remover.

DRILL MACHINE:
Aimed like the paintinator, and when you press R1 it spins, being able to cut through sponge/floaty material/cardboard/dissolve/polystyrene. (and kill your buddies :devious:)

this confuses me...because suction cups DO stick to glass and hard surfaces and nothing else....so wouldn't it be "(except for cloth material, sponge, sand, grass, etc.)"???

Oh yes that would make sense
Sorry my brain is dead today.

That actually sounds like a good idea. No more R1 digging.
And its a better way to kill/annoy your sackbuddies.

Also, as LBP2 is coming with bouce pads, why not Teleport Pads?

It would work this way:
- There's 2 objects: Teleport entrance and teleport exit;
- The teleport entrance has a wire that must be connected to an exit;
- The teleport entrance is tweakable. The options are:
Max uses: how many times every sack can use the thing;
One Way/Two Way: one way means you can only go from entrance to exit;
On/Off: Turns initial state On/Off. Switches can be used to turn the pads On/Off.

Lots of Ideas. I has dem. :D

MM doesn't need to hardwire everything into the game. LBP2 has a lot of new possibilities, so you'll most likely be able to do something like that with the already given tools.

You already can do this if you really wanted to

But this would be a "Deathless" teleporter, thing that is, by now, uhh.. Impossible?

i coulda swore they confirmed a way to do a "deathless" teleportation for those creators who always have to kill you to move to different cutscenes

Mah idea is....

Bike suit-
the idea is a motorcycle that attached to your sack which works by holding r1 to go forward and l1 to go back. This would be helpful for levels in which you need to go fast, like jumping over fire and catching up to runaway trains.:royalty:

Super_Clone
07-19-2010, 11:45 AM
Or you could just put a motorcycle in your level.. And in LBP 2 you could control it with a direct control seat so R1 is forward and R2 is back.....

Night vision goggles is a good idea. Tap R1 to use NV view and tap R1 to get out. Some objects should glow in the dark, and there should be stickers that glow too.

That would be great! It could be even used for like, detective levels.

You know, fingerprints, n stuff?

I hate how Sackboy cant swim that fast above or below water. Above water specifically.

The SackBear suit:
There can be only one sack using the suit at a time.
It turns the user into an invincible bear.
The bear can deflect plasma balls. The bear can absorb electricity for later use. The bear can walk on fire. The bear breathes horrible gas.
The bear can, at any time, eat one of the sackboys it may be playing with. It will take the points that the sackboy previously had and make the bear both stronger and faster.
The sackboy that was eaten will NOT respawn at the next checkpoint, or ever again. His PS3 will instead constantly transmit the picture of the inside of the bear, forever.

The bear can jump infinity height. The bear can break through any wall.
The bear can lift tires over his head.
If a level is created that the bear cannot defeat, the bear can then hunt the creator and maul him in his sleep.

If a player slaps the bear, all of their levels will be good grief'd and their pets will melt.

Yup in which case just get a bruce lee sackboy to slap the bear suit and its deleted automatically and breaks the level containing the power up :)

I like how earlier in the thread someone said a flamethrower would not be used, but lo and behold they have included flame bullets and the creatinator which form a makeshift flamethrower :P
Similar to gdn001, I think some sort of teleporter suit would be awesome. Tweakability would be teleport range, hold R1 and use the left analogue stick to decide where to go to, release and be teleported! Probably wouldn't be that useful, just fun.

what about : a sword/shield enhancement seprate or both at the same time use youre sword to slsh enemies to the graveyard by pressing triangle , and use the shield by using the right analog stick , maybe a bow with those sticky arrows , or maybe someting like superspeed boots

I was playing worms: modern warfare 2 the other day and thought that a Blow Torch character enhancement for LBP would be really cool! Where you can burn a sackboy sized tunnel through anything an explosive could destroy. It would also be good to tweak whether materials are destructible or not.

The next thing I would love would be a Running Shoes powerup. I made a piston push my sackboy along a long stretch of glass and the speed is actually really fun! It would be especially cool if you could adjust the speed of the running capability. Similarly, you'd be able to make sure sackboy can only move at a walking pace - ideal for cutscenes and levels where you want the player to look around and take in details!

for puzzles, using the saw object to grab it and move it to ropes to cut ropes, etc.
