Now it's Personal!

Ever been playing Pirates, Vikings and Knights II and noticed yourself throwing parrots at the enemy every chance you got? They would eat through them and life would go on unscathed.

But not anymore! When 2.2 is released you will now have the ability to name your parrot, making it that much more personal when sending the little guy out to peck faces. Now when the nearby Berserker mows him down, you'll have reason for cold hearted vengeance!

Some of you may already be aware of the Advanced Options menu in 2.1:

Before, this was useful for disabling the melee crosshairs and enabling fast weapon switch. But now, there's an added option field for your Parrot's name!

To get a preview of what this is like in-game, check out the two screenshots below (Parrot killers' names were blocked, for the safety of their families).

Another great thing that will soon be possible is the ability to track Parrot kills and deaths on stats. So if you wanna be a top Parrot killer when 2.2 comes, you best download yourself a copy and go out looking for Parrots!

    Thanks for the update! biggrin.gif I'm calling mine Cotton tongue.gif

    It'd be neat if you made a pack of parrot skins (OR, even better, parts of skins for mix'n'match) which users could choose from. 'Course there's no limit to how much time you could spend tinkering parrots about... in my (somewhat brief) modding experience it was all about getting a good, realistic "time spent: improvement" ratio and sticking to it, am I right? tongue.gif

    And I was only the Sounds Guy, heh.

    We could do multiple skins for the parrot, but we decided the captain's got too many goodies as it is right now!

    My Parrot's name is "Zabimaru!"

    Wow, when this feature first came out in testing I did a sex wee in my pantaloons smile.gif

    Hopefully more to come in journals about cool top secret suprise features.

    It is so weird that the man at arms gets a halberd instead of a mace.

    Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

    Noooo I do not agree here imo it should be made and should be nice, there is no benefit to say that's an advantage. Look how many aras have beautiful colours, why not add random skins to enrich this game? Think more adds will catch more people and just naming a parrot is a bit too patchy...

    Point Crazy's making is: Who would go Skirmisher when you could go Captain, complete with personalised and customised Parrot? The ratio of Skirmishers to Captains would change dramatically. So they need goodies for every class before they give the Captain more. It's nothing to do with stats or anything.
