And now for those screenshots and the character

InMomentum is featuring multiplayer. Players need to look somehow in multiplayer right? And players in multiplayer deserve the rights to customize their looks to their liking too, right?

We present to you our character customization system: Inertia.

A realtime, ingame demonstration of Inertia character customization.

In InMomentum, we allow players to customize their looks to their liking in a variety of ways. Above, you can see a couple of examples of multiplayer character customization. The player will be able to choose base color, stripes, glows, helmets and trail colors, and also set the glow strength or the reflectiveness of their suit! Multiple hundred thousand combinations are possible! Jump your color.

It's an approach we've decided upon after going through a bunch of concepts we had in mind. The main aim is, to provide the player with enough customization to build a unique look for himself when racing others. Using the 7 parameters with sliders for each, there are virtually endless combinations that one can make. The above example is just a simple way to show how this can happen. And they can glow in the dark too! Who wouldn't like a character that glows in the dark?

Looks cool, and I laughed at the player customization image. Looks like power rangers.

It's just an example that you can look as you want. The similarity in this example here is purely coincidental. Or is it? *ranger watch beeps*
