Ship of Heroes shows off the power of morphing body shapes with its newest video


The upcoming test for Ship of Heroes’ character creation is arriving on November 1st, and that means plenty of new superheroes running around on a spaceship. Hence the title. But there’s more to assembling your character than just putting on a costume; the latest video isn’t showing off the various costume pieces, but the way that you can tweak body dimensions and make your character look skinnier, broader, more muscular, or however you prefer.

As a result of this, the focus is almost entirely on the basic male model and all the ways that it can be tweaked, rather than any individual costume pieces. But you can see in the video just below that it’s a lot of tweaking, and the same range of tweaks are available on the huge male model and the female model. It’s a powerful creation tool, so if you’re accustomed to tweaking the heck out of your character before launching into superheroics, you’ll feel right at home with this creator.

Needs more butt sliders.
Seriously though, I appreciate the independent sliders for body mass and muscle definition, I use that in The Sims 4. But I’d like even more focus on the body, which you’re going to see all the time, your own or others, relative to the face which you may zoom in on occasionally if you’re a hardcore role-player.

And speaking of role-players, I look forward to seeing the possibility for non-heroic looking heroes. How about an old shriveled wizard, or an overweight witch without heroic boobs? It’s not like you need heroic proportions to cast spells. Well, those who live till November will see!

It’s clearly derived directly from the CoH creator, but updated to modern graphics capabilities and sensibilities.


Seems a lot of the selections are very conservative. :(

Curious as to what category things like cat-like eyes (slitteD) or eyes of a whole colour (all black etc..) or glowing eyes or fiery eyes would come under? Would those applied be costume effects rather than face selections or just not options included?

Also regarding ears, what if you just wanted a hole or something artificial looking, or pointed ears etc?? There doesn’t seem to be an ear selection or a means to extend or orient the tips to get pointed as noted etc..

Finally regarding beards no just stubble option?

Does not check email

I am hoping all version 1.0 with additions to come !
