Advanced Emotes for Destiny (images and infos)

So yesterday I thought about a way to increase the emotes from 4 to 16 and the post got really high on Reddit. Today I made a simple infographic with some UI ideas for this advanced emote system. I'm not saying is the best, only way to enhance communication on Destiny... it's just my small contribution on this topic, because we definitely need more communication. ;) [b]Types of emotes[/b] We're going to need at least 2/3 different typologies of emotes: 1. Long animations in third person view, viewable by the player (like the current ones). 2. Short animations in first person, viewable by the player, with audio cues (similar to the one in Battlefield when you spot someone and you see your hand pointing). 3. No animations viewable by the player (only the other players can see your gesture), audio feedback. Actually 2/3 could be the same type. Basically, type 1 actions are intended to be used in low danger situations, for entertainment, while type 2/3 are more tactic and don't require switching to third person view. [i]Note:[/i] I'm not saying, in any way, that this should replace voice chat. [b]Last Edit:[/b] I believe it's already too late for Bungie to implement a feature like this (or a commo rose) but the message for Bungie is very clear: people WANT more ways to communicate with other guardians. We want an easier way to voice chat with friends and also more emotes to interact with strangers. It wouldn't be that impossible for Bungie to work on these features and add them to a future DLC (2015?). Please Bungie, consider this topic! As a compromise, a first step could be add (as many people commented) a simple 8 emotes system, adding a double tap + direction on top of the system in place right now. Double tapping the dpad is definitely not that weird

  • A few quick questions....last night a player bowed. Never seen that before. Do the emotes change as you level? Are they class specific? Also a player was playing with a soccer ball in the main tower area. That was weird. Thoughts?

    • At the very least make the silent commands when riding a Sparrow available in battle somehow. Or easier: outside the Tower. Don't really need the dance/point/sit/wave emotes in the field.

      • Yes i'm so glad i'm not the only one that thought of this. Here are 4 of my idea's about Emotes. Feel free to ad any or new idea's. Honestly someone needs to make a poll on Emotes in Destiny so someone at Bungie will notice. [b]1. HAVING MORE THAN 4 EMOTES [/b] During my time playing Destiny's Beta I never thought I would find myself using Emotes like I did. The day of teammate's meleeing you, shooting you, throwing grenade's at you, crouching up and down to get your attention are over now that we have Emotes. I found that people were even nicer if you can believe that. But communication felt like it was limited with only 4 options of Emotes. I think just like many other people that having 8 Emotes feels about right. Any number more I think would be too much. [b]2. BEST EMOTE BUTTON FORMAT FOR CONTROLLERS[/b] Again i'm glad i'm not the only one that thought of this. I think that the best button layout for having 8 Emotes is the [b]''TAP'' DOUBLE TAP''[/b] This seems like the more efficient choice rather than having Wheels, Pop up Menu's, Columns, Diagonal directions on D-pad, or Button Mashing Combo's. These feel too fidelity and time consuming. While having two Emotes for each direction on the D-pad UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, with the ''TAP'' ''DOUBLE TAP'' would be quick and easy with less fumbling. [u]EXAMPLE[/u] [b]''TAP''[/b] UP on D-pad for 'Wave' Emote [b]''DOUBLE TAP''[/b] UP on D-pad for 'Salute' Emote [b]3. CHOOSING AND ASSIGNING EMOTES[/b] I think there should be at least 40 different types of Emotes. 20 MALE Guardian EMOTES and 20 FEMALE Guardian Emotes. This should be enough so that everyone would feel that there character would be unique and stand out from the crowd. You start the game with the standard 4 Emotes and as you rank up you unlock new Emotes and new SLOTS for more Emotes. Each direction UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, on the D-pad will have 2 SLOTS for 8 different Emotes. You will be able to pick and choose which Emote and assign it to whatever Slot suits you. These Slots can be accessed from your character's menu in game. You choose each Emote for each 2 SLOT's for that direction. ''TAP'' to activate SLOT 1 Emote ''DOUBLE TAP'' to activate SLOT 2 Emote (same)[u]EXAMPLE[/u] [b]''TAP''[/b] RIGHT on D-pad=(SLOT 1) for 'Dance' Emote [b]''DOUBLE TAP'[/b]' RIGHT on D-pad=(SLOT 2) for 'Fist Pump' Emote [b]4. EMOTES HAVING PURPOSE AND INTERACTIONS [/b] I agree with everyone that some Emotes should have a purpose. Like being able to create Visual Waypoint Markers, Tag Items and Enemies, Points of interest, Invite to Fireteam, Invite to Chat. There should also be a short Audio commands like Attack, Defend, Regroup, Flank etc. Would definitely make communicating easier and fun. I would also like to see people being able to use Emotes to interact with each other like High fiving, Fist Bumping, Chest Bumping, Hugging, Slapping, Pushing, Dancing etc. You should also be able to use Emotes to interact with your GHOST and other NPC's in game. I noticed that some of things in the E3's demo of Destiny that they left out and were not in the BETA. Like your character was able to lower there gun. A little detail like that but I wish it stayed in. So if we hope, wish, ask and with in good reason and easy to do that Bungie will listen to us and make it so. Cheers for reading my long rant about Emotes. feel free to ad anything new or something better than what I could think of. Bungie has made an absolutely epic game and I cant wait for September. see you star side.

        • I don't know about the xbone but on ps4 the touchpad is not utilized. That at least 8 open buttons for emotes.

        • Good idea for adding more advanced communications. A simple addition would be to add a "mood" emoji next to our name tags above our character based on your double click idea. Might be a lot easier to implement and get us something sooner than real animations.

                So... that many options and still no "furiously masturbate behind rather tight pantsed female hunter character"? ...Meh, why bother changing anything then.

                • I like the idea just the way it's written. Though, I'd use the Press and Hold option, rather than double tapping. Even in the worst case scenario, if they just let us customize the 4 emotes buttons we have, it'd be much better. That way I could THANK someone who just saved me, or be able to let them know I'm on the way to revive them, ect. I want my emotes to be more practical when I'm in the field. Games, such as Castlevania Harmony of Despair had a chat-wheel, and was used extensively. Even a game like Earth Defense Force: 2025 has a HUGE amount of emotes that are available. And even though EDF's list is a bit cumbersome, I still manage to use it while under fire, and convey what needs to be said to all of the Non-Mic players out there.

                  • I think this is a great idea. Only thing I can think of to add is when you double tap for a category it stays on that category until you double tap to a different one. For example your going into a tactical situation so you double tap to the tactical emotes it'll keep the tactical emotes set for single tap until you double tap to a different category. Maybe as a way to know what category you have selected there can be something in the corner of your HUD that says what category you have selected.

                    They should use the ps4 pad and swipe to change the different emojis! Great idea, really! So a swipe for spotting, and a swipe for others, thats my idea
