@Milk said in NGS Confirmed To Have 16 Accessory Slots! ;D:
I’m going to be sad if I can wear even less accessories than before because they’re too heavy.
Everything shown in the video I linked and also the Prologue 1 video before it which was also dubbed into English on the official PSO2 Global YouTube Channel used 2-4 points, though the only 2-point ones that made it to the screen were small hats, glasses and headpieces that probably had no animation or gravity.
I certainly doubt capes are going to be 1-point accessories. Those are large (larger accessories seen in the videos so far tend to have a higher point cost) and certainly have gravity. I find it unlikely they'd be less than 4 points.
So long as 4 points is the maximum, NGS will always give more freedom than we currently have in PSO2; if our main loadouts now are four 4-point accessories that'll total 16 points in NGS and the increase to 18 will give us 2 extra points to work with. Anything less than 4 points in our current loadouts (for instance these videos show the Oculus Hat I use regularly is 3 points) will add to that. It's not a huge upgrade in creative freedom, but it's something.
I'm more interested in the number of accessory positions ("slots" to some) that can be used. I mentioned earlier I wasn't sure, and looking back at the Prologue 1 video linked above I'm still not. That video does scroll down a bit once:
The gap above the bar is definitely positions 1 and 2, and the gap below it is about 1.5 times that size which suggests there's 3 more below position 9. This would mean there's 12 positions in total to spend those 18 points on, so even if there were 1-point accessories we probably couldn't use 18 of those unless that window is paged or still being limited to simplify the closed beta.
Then again if there aren't 1-point accessories there'd never be any need to have more than 9 positions on the list, so either they are considering 1-point accessories, they hadn't realised that when putting more positions on the list, or the window contents below position 9 are for other options we didn't get to see.
