Mother of Stars: What Happened To Dagda's Voice?
June 14, 2024 at 04:29 pm

I asked folks to specifically check these scenes to determine if this was intentional. It was. The processing was applied on certain lines to indicate her shifting back and forth between total possession. If it wasn't this way at launch, it was most likely a case of files not getting caught up in a batch process and fixed in a later patch. Thanks for bringing it to our attention regardless. Always helps to see how folks feel about particular details of the experience. 🙂...

Mother of Stars: What Happened To Dagda's Voice?
June 14, 2024 at 03:10 pm

When someone in our cast is voicing a non-human character, we supply them with a few things in the recording booth: Character bio/description High level info about their species If available, we show them some reference art to give them a visual representation of who they are voicing If they've voiced this character in the past (or if others have done so) we'll play them voice reference to get them into character and vocal range As for audio postprocessi...

Mother of Stars: What Happened To Dagda's Voice?
June 14, 2024 at 02:55 pm

My gut says this was likely a line that was marked for "possession" conditional processing to show her on the edge of being totally controlled for the last line of that scene and that it was missed in a batch process for launch but was caught later and then processed and imported. That stated, I don't know for sure but will ask a few folks to look into it. Thanks for the heads up....

Mother of Stars: What Happened To Dagda's Voice?
June 13, 2024 at 05:49 pm

Can you provide more context? I asked one of our audio folks who went into our dev tools, and he said that Dagda has the regular jotun VO processing applied to her bank of lines. Her appearance in a cinematic has a special conditional process applied to it, but that everything appears normal/intentional from what he's checked across a variety of voiced lines. Do you have any specific lines that stood out? If so, posting the text here would help us investigate further if you feel it&apo...

One behavior that I want all old players to do, starting from today.
June 12, 2024 at 11:36 pm

I've been following this thread and I'm loving the wide variety of options for ways to help and welcome new players. It's true that what's interesting, useful, or valued can vary widely from player to player, we've heard countless times over the years how much the vast majority of new players appreciate those welcome gestures from veterans in all of their forms. Thanks to all of you for sharing your ideas and experiences with this sort of thing!...

The fun thing about having such a variety of mount appearances is that there's a something that appeals to everyone--and conversely everyone is gonna have something they distinctly do NOT like. Taste is highly subjective! (And rest assured I have passed requests for more plush mounts on to the team! 😄 )...
