TennoCon 2019 - TennoGen Workshop Recap

Recommended Posts

For TennoCon 2019, we continued the tradition of announcing new content during our  that we’ll be bringing to the program this year -- but with a bit of a twist! Skyers and Kaz both live modelled some of the new content types we announced. 

While we can’t share the full workshop, we can share what was discussed and revealed (as well as the concepts I tortured them into making a reality).

Let’s get right into it!
 

New Factions

Since October 2015, TennoGen creations have been loosely tied to the four core Warframe Factions: Tenno, Corpus, Grineer, and Infested (and their various sub-factions).

Warframe has grown a lot since 2015, and so it’s time to expand the Factions for the creators and the community! Expect these new Factions to appear in our Faction Style Guide hopefully soon:

New Melee Meshes

Dual-Handed Nikana

Whether you know it as the Odachi or the Tatsu, these big swords will be available in the workshop by the end of July -- but hopefully much sooner.

Whips

Whips are a challenging melee weapon to model meshes for, which is why it took us so long to add them. There are strict guidelines that need to be followed for animations to work properly, and we will need to restrict a creator’s ability to alter the whip chain geometry to ensure there are no issues.

Technical details out of the way, whips are a very dynamic-looking weapon type and we can’t wait to see what the community comes up with! It’s our goal to get the full technical details released and ready for Whip submissions by the end of July. Please do not make Whips before then, since there are strict guidelines for the handles that need to be followed!


New Content Type

Chest Armor Pieces

After almost 4 years of Skins and Syandanas, armor pieces seem like the logical next step for Warframe customization in TennoGen! 

We’re starting small with chest armor only, and we will evaluate adding shoulder and leg plates where possible. This type of cosmetic is quite a bit of work to set up, so we want to test the implementation of chest pieces for our team before we look to expanding into full armor sets.

Expect a full write-up of technical requirements and guidelines again hopefully by the end of July. 

In the meantime, here are the Whip and Armor concepts we modeled during the workshop just for fun:

(Unfortunately neither of these meet the program requirements, so we can’t add them to the game, even though I asked very very nicely).

That’s about it! Feel free to leave any questions you have in this thread and we’ll do our best to answer them. We don’t have any other news on new content, including Operator Suits, for those wondering. Our current focus is on what was announced above.

Could you guys not derail the thread about issues unrelated to TennoGen?

Speaking of, I am happy that TennoGen is starting to allow Armor Pieces, even it's just going to be the very first stepping stones. Hopefully creators can make good Chest pieces that stand out on their own, with following Shoulders/Leg attachments only complimenting them instead of relying on them.

Actually, a question related to this, what would be the price of a single TennoGen Armor piece? And is it possible for a TennoGen Armor set to be sold together?

So, does this mean the Mesa Corpa skin will be added now? From what I recall, it got rejected somewhat recently for being too "Solaris" and not Corpus.

also still holding out for a day when the Miter is added for customizing.

Also Taylor:  *Designs the best chest plate in the game as a joke*

Hold the #*!% up, the Tatsu counts as a sentient weapon?

Aw S#&$ this means my "Sentient Drone" limbo has a few more options.

 

That being said I will pay in virgin sacrifices and blood rubies for someone to cook up some sentient swag for frames that work well with Adaptation.

I hope to see some creative chest armor that can cover full chest part...

Quick update on timing -- we experienced some unexpected delays on the new content and faction guides. Still hoping to release them soon, even if we didn't make our end of July goal. Thanks for your patience, everyone. 🙂
