nidalee visual update - bugs and feedback thread

  • nidalee's visual update is on the pbe!

    please post bug reports and feedback here. i'll be reading this thread regularly until her release. i'll also keep a succinct list of 'frequently asked questions' and/or known issues to save everyone the trouble of overly redundant reports.

    this is just her first iteration, so not everything is finished. for example:
    - no new splash art yet.
    - her javelin for basic attacks and javelin toss is always the classic javelin (there will be skin-specific javelin's for french maid, pharaoh, and bewitching).
    - her sounds effects aren't yet updated so you may hear some weird things until we patch those out.

    as we update the pbe build, i'll edit the above list to reflect her current state.

    thanks!

    yup! they're as far along as the skins in the announcement thread, but generally speaking we don't want to tease skins that players cannot pick up in the store.

    the current plan is to stick with classic, french maid, and pharaoh. i'll look into the possibility of expanding our pbe testing to include more than the ones currently available, but for the time being please assume that they won't be available. they don't have unique animations or particle effects, so there is less (but not zero) value in broadening our public testing efforts to include them.

    we have a fix for this now.

    we haven't done a pass for this yet, but we will address it before she ships.

    yes, they'll be updated on skins with unique javelins.

    ah, okay i see what you mean. i'll mention it to our texture artists—thanks for the report!

    HOPE, the correct size is in the normal skin, because french maid is to small ..

    Also i dont think you have to change the voice, is just amazing, and fits so well..

    we still need to do a sizing pass on all of her skins. the classic skin is the size we intend to make her across the board, so the french maid skin will be sized up to match.

    i'll make sure we're correctly loading the new assets up front. thanks for the heads up!

    i think the current plan for audio is:
    -keep her voice and script the same as it is on the normal server.
    -keep her javelin toss 'hit' sound effect the same as it is on the normal server.
    -updated sound effects as seen fit for everything else.

    are all the players in the game seeing this, or do results vary per person?
    also, what are your in-game video settings?

    thanks in advance!

    EDIT: Now I feel like an ass, telling a Rioter how to refer to their game.

    lol, no worries. i know how we refer to everything internally, but i try not to use too much jargon whenever possible. although many in this forum might understand what i mean when i talk about 'differences between pbe and live' not everyone will. this is especially true when we have newer players sign up.

    if it ever got to the point where 'normal server' was less clear than 'live server' then i'd of course change.
  • thanks for all of the posts so far everyone!
    these have been helpful—i'll make more responses and update the original post after the weekend.
