I still play the game when I have time, and recently, I've been inspired to create a couple more ring-slingers!

We'll start with my newest character first. Just today, I decided to create Jenny Lynn Hayden, BKA JADE. After reading a tutorial about how to make a GL Corps Uniform during Character Creation, I'd planned to have her wearing that uniform, like she did when she was Kyle Rayner's girlfriend. But the necessary styles look completely different on Female Characters, so it wouldn't work. The Corps Uniform will have to wait until I can obtain the Scion of Ion Chest and Legs for her.

So, I ended up making the closest possible approximation of her very first costume, instead. Here's how she came out:



Unfortunately, the game still doesn't allow Dual-Classing, so there was no way to give her both Hard Light Powers AND Nature Powers. Who knows if they'll ever decide to expand the game to allow Dual-Classing, though. In some RPGs, that concept's been around for ages. In DCUO, however, it may never happen.

A couple months ago, I also decided to make Boodikka, based on her earliest appearances back in the early '90s. Since the artists have fiddled around with her look since then, making her look more like a conventional superheroine (at least until she became an Alpha Lantern, anyway) here's a reminder of how she looked when she first appeared:



Note how she towers over Hal? She seems to have shrunk a bit since then, LOL!

And this was her Corps Uniform:



And this was the closest I could get at Character Creation. The lack of shoulder armor is due to the game's Developers not allowing you to select a Shoulder Style during Character Creation. Your characters can't have any Shoulder Styles at ALL until they complete the first mission that gives Shoulder Armor as a Quest Reward, which is usually around Level 8 or 9.



I decided the skin tone still wasn't pale enough, so I tweaked it before taking this picture to show how tall she is next to an "average" male human in-game (in this case, Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon, LOL!)



I'll post updated pics once her costume's more complete.

While playing around with Style options for one of my non-human GL characters, I discovered that it's ridiculously easy to make the standard, humanoid GL Corps uniform from the animated films Green Lantern: First Flight and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Here's a quick and dirty comparison pic:



The recipe couldn't BE easier, and everything you need is available at Character Creation, with the sole exception of the GL Corps Emblem, but new characters can obtain one of those pretty quickly from either a Time Capsule drop, or a quick purchase on the Auction Broker!

Here's the breakdown:
  • CHEST = Streak Slimline
  • LEGS = Tertiary Slimline
  • HANDS = Formal
  • EMBLEM = GL Corps Emblem
Naturally, once the character is able to obtain them, the Chest and Leg Styles can be upgraded to Scion of Ion, if so desired, which will make the Emblem an even better match to what was seen in the animated films.

Keep in mind, though, that changing the Chest Style will also likely require a change of the Hand Style.

After putting it off for far too long, I FINALLY made myself complete the Conversion Duos and Alert, and have now finally completed the costume for my first character. I give you the Green Lantern of Sector 0017, everyone's favorite gun-and-ring-slingin' scoundrel from the planet Hellhole, the one, the only...

JACK T. CHANCE!



He is now as close as I can get him to how he looks in the comics. Since the Dev(s) that programmed the Classic Duster Chest Style put the Emblem in the wrong place (it belongs over the left breast as a badge, and nowhere else) I had to have him wear his GL Corps Badge on his back instead:



If by some miracle, the Devs ever correct the Emblem size & placement on this Chest Style like they ought to, I'll update his styles again. But until then, his look is locked! Too bad there isn't an in-game emote that lets our characters be seen smoking...



Sadly, I know why that isn't in the game. Blah blah blah, bad example for the kids, yadda yadda yadda.



P.S. Some of you probably noticed a small change I made to the color scheme for his outfit. In the original comics (he first appeared in Green Lantern Corps Quarterly issues 1 & 8) the entire outfit under his coat was colored in 2 slightly different shades of gray, as you can see above. Since that looks boring as hell, and since his boots, gloves, gun-belt, knee-pads, and vest should all be leather goods, I colored them black, 'cuz black leather is just the way to go for those sorts of items!

If I were on that game, I'd recognize him even before seeing the back emblem. I never liked the character, personally, but you represented him well with your limitations.
