Hey guys. Figured out from ash's twitter that holsters will be in high res cinematics, but not in actual gameplay, because of technical issues and restraints

However, he says that they are trying to fix the issue, but he doesn't know what will happen.

I'm dumbfounded how they're running up against technical restraints now but not in AC3, particularly given access to the PS4.

Edwards's pistols stay attached to him through the adhesive magic of seagull ****.

Man, everyone keeps complaining that there are no holsters, but why would a pirate have a holster? You can see from pics of Edward and Blackbeard that the pistols are strapped on with a simple leather loop. Historically in combat pirates would need quick access to whip the pistols out, shoot, discard, and switch to sword combat. I don't know why this is such a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

Possibly because the CGI renders show holsters..

And that Edward actually keeps some pistols at his sides.

And that when we say holsters we're including the leather straps that keep them on Edward's chest that aren't there in gameplay.

yeah that's true. But he doesn't have those either! The guns are just floating around and clipping through Edward's clothes. I would love loops and sheathes while they're at it.

My bad, I assumed you guys meant like big wild west style holsters.
Looking at the gameplay again there is nothing holding the pistols, it does look like they are just floating.
It does kinda look odd.

It's not that it isn't technically feasible. It's that it's not practical to develop. It's actually much more complicated than you think to get all those pieces ("3-D models and reenders") to move together and work together in a realistic fashion. The average Assassin is already loaded down with far more models than any Western game or other types of games. (Swords, secondary weapons, ranged weapons, etc.)

This is part of polishing. Nothing in polishing is "practical" to develop, it just makes the game look and feel better. Thus polishing is needed.

I'll be completely sold on the ACBF dev team if holsters are in by the Havana demo.

Ummm... yeah for me I doubt I'll really be paying attention to such a small aspect such as this to the point where it bothers me enough to make a thread about it... but meh. just like ambient music. It's nice if it's there but I'm no going to really through a fit about it. : /

(didn't even notice in AC3 -- enjoyed nature sounds)

Yep, got through 4 games without sheaths and it didn't bother me at all. No holsters will do just fine too.

Why do you care if it doesn't matter to you?
