Valiance Online’s latest alpha patch touches on characters, animations, and interior procedural generation

Heroic?

We’re having a superhero MMO moment here, folks. Last week, Valiance Online teased something big happening, and now we know what it is: an update. Two updates, in fact.

“Two new patches rolled through!” Silverhelm Studios tweeted. “One for the physical character creator. (Please be advised, due to un-reported abuse of the creator, characters were wiped for the updated launcher)”

The patch notes focus on the character creation tweaks; specifically, it looks like animations got an update, hats and head-gear should fit better, and necks and heads should be positioned properly, plus the team worked on procedural generation on interiors and began work on RAM reduction.

Valiance Online is one of four live indie spiritual successors to City of Heroes; it is currently in development alpha for backers. In 2018 alone, it previewed mapsfemale toons, and costumes.

So while looking at these successor games, we have 3 all advancing, all looking to fill the void that CoX left in our gaming time and lives. While their launch dates may not conflict that much, the role they fill does and I can’t think of anyone that has time for 3 MMOs, especially of the same genre! I did briefly play CoX, WoW, and EQ at the same time but fell behind in all 3 so not for long!

Ignoring the recent resurgence of our beloved CoX, will we end up with the community divided among the 3 games? As I said in a post for another of these spiritual successors recently, I don’t want any of them to fail and I doubt anyone has a crystal ball to predict how this will shake out, but how will the superhero MMO community support 3 of these at once? CoX was a success but not to the level of WoW, dividing that into 3 seems to be a serious issue for all 3 games and I’m curious as to how this will all pan out and what the Massively crew thinks of all this.

And I too played on alpha way back when. Still looking forward to VO as well.

First off, thank you so much for bringing attention to our changes!

We wanted to address something for the public, while the patches were first on the list of big news, the news itself isn’t over. In the coming weeks we will be announcing more and more based on the Big News teaser. While the patch was very much needed and got the investors where they needed to be testing wise, there’s still much to come. So keep an eye out!

This is the one I heard the least about. Still interested but where are they overall as far as progress towards beta and launch?
