[COLOR=limegreen]Here's what was posted on these 5 forums[/COLOR] Okay folks, I am sure most of you know the routine. I am taking up a variety of polls up in a variety of places because I want to get some feedback from you on some ideas I've been having. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your time now. It helps make an already phenomenal mod even more incredible. grin.gif

Anyways, to the topic at hand, I want to make a few changes to the existing Orange & Purple stances like...

#1) Orange does about the same damage as Red & Purple does the about same damage as Blue. Since there is no middle stance, Orange is faster than Red & Purple is faster than Blue. multi_stances_diff.jpg I made the New Fast Stance by combining the Blue & Yellow stances, then I made the New Hard Stance by combining the Red & Yellow stances (there is a little difference between old & new with hard stance).

So #1 is, I want to change the colors of the 2 stances.

#2) I think the Crab Twirl (Purple special) would make a great counter attack move, except it just takes too damn long.

So #2 is, I think the Crab Twirl should be faster & less damaging (less damaging to compensate for the speed increase).

#3) I think that the Vertical Twirl (Orange special) should always spin counter-clockwise (looking from above the player doing the move, like third person view) instead of rotating between clockwise & counter-clockwise.

Clockwise just isn't as useful as counter-clockwise is. Hits tend to connect more with counter-clockwise & people like to turn with the spin (like the 1.03 back attack days) to connect more hits, so this helps out a bit there as well.

#4) Fix the Orange damage in Duelers 1.3. It does the same damage as Purple but it is not supposed to.

#5) This is no biggie but I would like to see some new idle animations. There was some new stances mod out some time ago, perhaps some of those animations could be used for multiple blades? I don't remember the mod all that well, I do remember the idle animation stances it used for Blue, Yellow & Red sucked but perhaps with multiple blades it would be different. Maybe get some different idle animations just for dual sabers, then the dual bladed sabers would still use the existing? I don't know, just throwin' ideas out.

Why we default extra stances & all stances off All this section does is go into some reasons why we default extra stances & all stances off since that is somewhat on this topic.

We recommend (& default) all stances & extra stances (single saber uses blue, yellow & red only; multiple blades use Orange & Purple stances only) for a variety of reasons...

#1) If you were to enable dual dual bladed sabers, having defense on all 4 corners will probably block a lot of swings players never even meant to block (as well as hit) which takes a bit of skill out of the duels.

#2) Animations with the blue, yellow & red stances go through the player model with multiple blades (in other words, it looks lame).

#3) Switching between 5 stances fast is more difficult to do than switching between 3 stances fast & does tend to mess up fast counter attacks.

#4) The Orange & Purple stances have been set up for balanced gameplay without the traditional 3 stances. Orange does about the same damage as Red & Purple does the about same damage as Blue. Since there is no middle stance, Orange is faster than Red & Purple is faster than Blue.

#5) The Orange & Purple specials are at least twice as damaging with multiple blades where with the Blue, Yellow & Red stances, it makes no differance at all.
