Expanding Operator Customization


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this post / thread is actually part of a more diverse post I made roughly at the same time (I typed this up on the google docs first)!

Here is the other post, to link this back to there:

I have asked this a few times earlier this year, but now I wanted to make it it's own thread. In an effort to help expand customization options for Operators, I took several screenshots over time with my own Operator, so that Tenno & DE staff can get a proper feel / visual look at how this may work.

This involves both Armor and an example with a Syandana. I used Paint.net to single out the Armor / Syandana (Erasing around empty pixels carefully!), and with blank layers placed them onto the original screenshots. I also cropped the images, & adjusted the angles of some armor pieces so they face the most likely direction as in-game.

First are the comparisons (Using the Dex Raksaka Armor as an example) with Armor.

With Synkra Syandana                        Without the Syandana

Considering all the recent revisions across the game (Especially the Deadlock Protocol & tileset remaster), at some point I think Operators should be looked at too, in terms of their variability. One big part of that does involve their customization. There is a huge amount of great-looking things that Warframes are able to wear; Individual pieces of armor from different things, Syandanas, you name it. & displaying additional emblems on each shoulder to boot. However, Operators aren't currently able to wear armor or Syandanas for now (Besides only four different voices for now, but that's addressed in the other thread I linked above).


If Operators were able to wear Warframe armor & syandanas, I believe it will seriously open up customization options for all of the Operators throughout the game! The assets are already made, the only thing may be to establish the combinations for them on Operators (And make any size / clipping adjustments as they come). I hope this part's a worthwhile idea to consider as well 🙂 

(As for me, I based my Operator off of my fiancee, though the face shape isn't 100% accurate)

These are the colors I used for the styled Dex Armor, in case anyone was wondering:

The Synkra Syandana was used with it's default colors. Has anyone (Both DE staff and players) thought about this in the past as well?

Incorporated the link to the other post into this one! I'm not sure why some of the text shows up so dark on a dark website theme though. Edit 2: Figured out the font color issue! Edit #3: I noticed there are more tags! Added some, including Spoilers!

It's been a long time since I've posted in the thread, but I still hope that the next time Operators are looked at, this can be considered as well.

  • The new TennoCon Armor would likely look great on them as well, I'm sure!

 

That being said, I wanted to mention about Crew Customization. Apparently you can hold & drag colors with their appearance, and they can display Armor, but not Emblems. Perhaps they could be thought of as a template for how Operators would be able to equip various Armor pieces / Syandanas?

  • Regarding the ability to hold and drag colors around; Warframes, Companions & Vehicles will also benefit from that as much as Operators would :)

I'm wondering, has anyone else thought of some ideas for what Armor / Syandana they'd like to have on their Operator? Just out of curiosity.

I was in a bit of a hurry when I first posted this small bump; I forgot to mention about the Crew customization, etc. Edit #2: Found a typo :)

Aye, the crew customization is a good spring-board for it

Yes please.
Hopefully now that we have crew customization (as mentioned), we may get operator customization. Perhaps with Duviri and Grown-uperators?
My only concern is how it would work with some of the bigger operator suit parts. Still, here's hoping.

Same here :)

 

I've been thinking it could be more of a Duviri addition, unless Operators are looked at before then. The sooner the better!
