Treellama, this is a poll, don't even say it.

Unfortunately, Envy, you only addressed Treellama concerning this issue.

Two percent? I'm slightly confused.

WHY IS THIS POLL MULTI-CHOICE?

Its multiple choice because I cant ask 10 questions, I can only ask 3. Kinda silly if you ask me.

Blue, other: as in the picture I already posted in the other thread. Yet minus the belt, and add the shoulder belt thing.

I posted the Violet M1 Marine below, for your convenience.

Also, you forgot to add poll choices for for the green marine, :( in which case I would choose the other picture I posted before. Again, shown below for your convenience.

Perhaps if you're ambitious, you can have color variations for each type of armor, and let the user customize his/her enhancement pack. e.g. If I preferred to have all the M2/Infinity Marines, but wanted the Violet one to have the M1 armor. That's just my idea.

Pres its unbelievably easy to change the colors, or even have a host of colors for one set of armor. Its making the armor that's the hard part. The question is, should I go to the trouble (would it be that much better anyways?) and which ones, if I do, should I make anew. I also didn't forget green, I just only had one option because it looked incomprehensibly ugly any other way. Also also, aside from the ugly boots, how are the m1 and m2 marines different?
Zott, Good idea, I like the belt though. Maybe both?
And Tree, is this poll obstructing your path to something? Does its existence bother you?

The shirt underneath the armor is a light grey and looks to be baggier (See attachment). Also, it's not just the boots/socks, (which I don't think are ugly, the M2/Infinity boots just look better,) the pants as well have the baggy M1 look, as opposed to the skin tight M2/Infinity look. And it has a button. (See comparative attachment below)

You're right. It looks like the m1 guy is wearing a cheap halloween costume with the armor as ugly felt cloth. Looking at it now I can't say I like either of them! They aren't terribly distinct from each other in that respect.
ugly boots/socks,

I was referring to the socks as the better of the two.

It will, when you no longer care about it but every time someone votes it comes up in VNP again. But what do you care, you'll be gone by then.

It's not like it's going to tell you anything, with half the respondents voting for every option just to be dicks, and the other half being the people who don't even have enough taste not to take it seriously. I will repeat that in case it isn't clear: almost anybody whose opinion should matter to you will either avoid voting, or will vote incorrectly just to screw with the poll. You make it even easier for this latter group by making it multiple choice.

If you get any useful feedback, it will be in the discussion itself, which you could have accomplished without a poll.

So, given there's no good reason to loose this eventual zombie on us, yes, its existence does bother me. Likewise, your inconsiderate behavior in creating him.

He proves very good points. You might just want to make the sprites the way you envision them, and then get additional feedback from others after you release them.

Reading that, I will never make a poll again. I had no idea that they were so annoying, or that I was being inconsiderate.

Edit: How do I remove it?

Envy,

Dude I like where you going with this - but tbh if you ask too many questions, you will get too many responses.
-Just make it based on your original idea, then put a trail/demo picture on the forums and wait for feedback. Then go with majority rules (or your favourite pick).
-Otherwise you will go crazy trying to match everybody's comments. Everybody has a different perspective on what's original or truer, or better looking etc..

Just remember this:

1) Not everybody will like it...can't please everybody.
2) Those that do will use it, love it, probably praise you for it. <I love anything Marathon>
3) Those that hate it will never use it...or eventually bend over and accept that is what you have made. <--- This happens alot iRL

Eitherway - you will enjoy doing it. And you would have contributed to the community for others to appreciate also.
