Soul Calibur 6 CaS Discussion

I used to use the bolt from the extras in SCV to give my characters a vacant eye/heterochromia. I had to use to gun to get it to look barely decent in SCVI, since the bolt is gone....

Ivy CAS can't get rid of the purple glow when the weapon changes to whip mode, btw.

Edit: I have now successfully made two CAS to be proud of. As I suspected, they mostly use the character equipment.

Just posted this in general discussion thread but worth mentioning here too.

They falsely told us prior to launch that we would be able to download other people's characters even if we don't have the same parts unlocked and that we simply wouldn't be able to edit them which sounds fair.

I tried downloading a particular character and it wouldn't let me because it contained a part I didn't have unlocked yet. So if you don't have the parts then you can't download them, period.

This isn't a huge deal but just thought I'd put it out there because it seems odd that they told us this but we can't actually do it.

EDIT-
They probably realised they could make more money from dlc down the line by restricting it.
Can you clarify that the character you were trying to download was wearing any parts of Tira's, and also whether or not you own Tira? I'm curious about this.

Preview of Maelys, heroine of my WIP Kingsbane. Notice any tricks? There’s at least two and I credit one of them to @VILARCANE .

Look very carefully. You may have seen an NPC in Libra early on that also has this effect.

Also unsure about sticking with the Breastplate or Menghu Cuirass.

Just in case anyone doesn't know. To put stickers on the back of capes, you need to change the horizontal angle on the selector for projection. The way it shows the red square as you begin to put on the sticker is the angle you get, if you change the horizontal angle, it goes round the model, so it can go in back should you need. It's a bit awkward, but I'm sure you'll get used to it.

She looks lovely! How were you able to get the beauty mark to look good? I used one of the sun stickers when trying to make my Bloodborne character, but it still looks a bit off.

I had already downloaded her so it must have been something I hadn't unlocked with soul points (I haven't unlocked any of the locked parts yet).

Right, I wondered because you brought up how it might be another scummy DLC practice, but that doesn't make a lick of sense if you have Tira because soul point stuff has nothing to do with DLC... Perhaps they had pre-order bonus items on it? That's all I can think.

It does make sense. In my case it would have been one of the unlockables already in the base game. But future dlc would obviously work the same way, ie if you haven't bought and downloaded the required dlc pack, the game's interface would prevent you from downloading and playing people's characters made with the dlc parts that you don't have, therfore baiting / incentivising you to purchase the dlc pack so you don't have any limitations when trying to download people's creations. See what I mean now?

You can't download people's characters made with SP purchasable parts that you haven't unlocked. I don't see any reason why dlc parts would be exclusive to this. If that's the way the system works then it will surely work the same way for both. That's why it looks like a dlc bait tactic. Because originally they said we would be able to download people's characters irrespective of whether we had the right parts unlocked and that the only limitation would be the inability to edit them.

I use the foot motif in Rotation to get it as tiny as possible. And then I use a circle and try to match it to the skin tone. If you have bad OCD you’d probably notice the imperfection.

Fun fact: She’s the longest lasting OC of mine without too many significant changes. Only going from a white mage type to Paladin/she’d play more like the actual protagonist in an RPG than XIII (my main OC whose the rogue class.)

Still unsure which armor is best on her between Menghu and Breastplate.

Thank you! Looking at it a second time I can see the circle, but it's not bad at all. The sun motif I'm currently using has a similar problem, along with having the border of the motif visible.

That's what I'm saying doesn't make a lick of sense. They said X, then went back on it.

It's really strange seeing you, of all people, feeling like this. Understandable but strange. A lot of us consider you easily one of the best and most creative, and I was looking forwards to your stuff, but I totally get you there is a lack, and then the conflicts are frustrating.

I'm getting real disenchanted with half the lower wear including their own boots too.

Glad to see some friendly familiar face especially ones with such kind words.
I have managed to create one character but sadly it felt a lot more like a compromise opposed to fun, I'll post her in the other forum. Now I've properly used the new system I've just become more aware of more and more faults 😭

I'm hoping that I can raise the spirits of some of you fellow CaS'ers here by showing off the few creations I've actually put time and passion into! I've now done Bayonetta, Raiden(MGSR), 2B and Lara Croft(Classic) and, might I say, they look much better than decent. Hopefully I can share them with you guys soon, I just have to figure out how to get them from my PS4 onto here. 😅

Easy to have kind words when you're talking to someone you like ;)
I look forwards to seeing her, please link me when you do! (Because I have a cyclone of notifications often and don't wanna miss it...)
It is easy to get caught up in the faults and feel stifled. I've just accepted that a lot of pieces are going to be used on a lot of creations and am just making my peace with it. DLC characters should, in theory, help pad things out alongside those CaS packs? But yea I feel ya man.

Oh I'll ask some friends of mine if nobody gets back to you first :)
