New Armor Idea - Need Approval from App Team Member
« on: Dec 06, 2017, 04:27 PM »
I have an idea for a new set of armor and I need to see if it can be approved, and if not, some tangible ways to make it approved. Not being pushy, I just need something concrete like "there is too much color" or "stick to two colors" or "that pattern isn't kosher." Something I can work with.

Yogi is making my armor we are submitting for approval already. So I have atleast one armor that should be app approved. This one is one *I* wanna build, but I want to make sure it works for Mercs official use before I start working on it.

This is my main idea:



This is my backup idea:



This my backup - backup idea:



Will any of these work?

"too much color" is not a thing.  Patterns are only problematic if they are two earthy,  I don't *think* the hexagons are.  If you want an official ruling on it, might want to post your concept pics to the the App Team Q&A subforum.   

Other than the hexagons, I don't see anything that's borderline about it... and I think they're okay too.

I've seen members like Lii'kah with hexagonal patterns on their armor and pass. It looks like a solid set of concepts and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I see "admin" in your profile info. Does that mean this is approved...?

Any of those color combinations would work just fine.  I would, though, recommend you stay away from the hex pattern on the blue plates - it's a little too reminiscent of the comic book Captain America.  That said, the first and third ideas have a better visual flow.

Well, you caught me. That was the inspiration - the Marvel Now Cap with the hexagonal patterns.

So if I stay away from the hexagons, or go with a more universe friendly pattern, I should be safe?

Sure.  A lot of it comes down to how it looks once it's actually on the armor itself, and the armor is on you.  A design can only take you so far.   :)

Very true. I've been thinking that as I look at a lot of other designs that "push the limits" or are wildly creative. It really comes down to application.

Thanks for the input, man. I am going to get started here in the next couple weeks. Maybe sooner if I can get my hands on the right stuff.
