Probably just a rework of the textures of the black ninja suit which was suspicious in the whole of hokkaido. It’d make sense for it to be intended as it is suspicious as hell, but it’d limit your gameplay while corky the clown would be fine? lol.
Probably get fixed soon, like the illegal bananas, umbrellas and eggs.
first place is off-limits so that’s correct, second one seems to be part of the bug.
I’ve tried various maps, free areas or restricted such as hokkaido.
Start off at Paris and nobody cares ‘hey is it mr. ninja or ninja sir?’
Start off at Hokkaido 1: bed, can’t lie down as ‘mr. reaper’ , illegal
start off at hokkaido 2: sauna, get shot up before you get up.
Mendoza doesn’t give you the option to give an invitation. Blending in works but not when it’s tied to an identity.
Conclusion, while you’re in this suit, you don’t count as agent 47 but ‘ninja’ , while entry passes or rights apply to ‘47’.
i.e. i could run around miami race, but i couldn’t get in through the line.
I think suits like this are suited for pure stealth gameplay and “ghosting” and it makes sense they’re illegal across the map. The same should be true for outfits like the bank robber, and it’s weird it’s not.
The issue with Hokkaido and probably some other maps is not having a suit only starting point without a lot of people around blocking your pathways.
If IOI changes or patches the behavior of the White Shadow Suit, I hope they are very careful in tweaking it. There is a lot of awesome ninja dialogue by NPC’s. I’m just afraid that if the developers remove the trespassing behavior linked to the ninja-ness of this suit, they might accidentally remove the “ninja flag” that enables the ninja comments by NPC’s.
Personally I absolutely love the concept of a more restrictive suit. It could even begin a entirely new category for speedruns.
If IOI “fixes” this, id love for them to compromise and maybe introduce “legal” and “illegal” variants for disguises like this . This way both people who like it as a cosmetic and people who like it as a way to change up gameplay for something more challenging would be satisfied.
This, if they just put it on a new tab of outfits instead of themed it’d be fine with some minor tweaks.
Right now it plays like you’re solo with no ICA to create an identity so all areas with a required identity like mr rieper won’t work but ninja runs from certain starting points on certain maps would be great, worked well for Paris for instance, where they don’t do frisks and invitation checks at every corner of the starting points.
I’d like to see it as a limit the entry points to the ones that work, then play like the ninja challenge in hokkaido was and have a challenge for it. ‘The White Shadow’ like a superior SASO. (although the blade does hunger, lol.)
