    Customisation Cominations: The Math

    I was looking at the customisation screen shots and noticed that the 6 different sections of the body have 8 different parts to choose from.
    So it got me wondering "how many combinations of armour is there" as we haven't heard much about this. So I'm gonna try and work it out, I could be wrong as I'm not 100% sure whether im right
    (if anyone can see I've done it wrong please tell me)

    Okay, here goes:


    So you have 8 parts for each of the 6 sections of the body.


    In this case you have 8 options for the head, 8 options for the chest etc and u multiply them each time and as there are 6 sections with 8 options, it will be:

    8x8x8x8x8x8 (8^6) =262,144

    For each class there will be 262,144 different character combinations (aside from the colours, decals, textures) and 1,048,576 overall

    This is only if there are 8 armour parts for each of the 6 sections, there could be less than 8 on some choices which would make my overall figure wrong (if it isn't already) but not by much .... Hopefully :p 

    I hope over a million character combinations is enough for you guys

    (if I have done any of the workings out wrong please tell me where I've gone wrong so I can change it :thumb  thanks)

    What I still don't understand is how they could possibly make so many combinations like that. It seems almost impossible. How the heck did they do it?!

    Didn't Matt say that the possibilities were 8^16 back in November, during his round table talks with GI?

    In addition to limbs there are other additions a gamer can use to create his/her own unique character: spoilers, turrets, barrels, rims and some other things too if I'm not mistaken. Can't we also choose to add a shoulder cannon? I thought I saw this option in one of the vids uploaded yesterday.

    i was just watching this video in the "FoC to have cheats" thread" and around the 11:00 mark they show more of the customizing screens. at 11:45 you can see the color selection, which lets you choose between various color combinations. They show the decepticon palette and it looks to be fairly similar to the colors we were limited to in WfC (however theres does seem to be a slider to go down to see more colors). also they show the metallic slider in action.

    Leaders also have wheels. I saw an Optimus with Breakdown's tires.

    I guess, but several of the items you listed aren't tied down to one class: Megatron's alternate mode has wings; Perceptor's alternate mode has wheels; Scouts (or are they infiltraters). If a Scout's spoiler might look like wings if placed just behind the shoulders.

    If the Optimus you were referring to was purple, that was a different chassis, I'm thinking Swindle. I think the Scrapper chest is Wheeljack's.

    No, it was definitely Optimus. I saw it on his back along with the weird rectangular tubes with the glow and the thing that spins in vehicle mode. Definitely Optimus.

    The wings are part of his normal mode they arent really wings there just part of what megatron looks like

    Percepters alt mode wheels are probably the parts that make him hover since they point a bit down
