What is a glyph symbol?

Glyph symbol is the way the player character displays his/her glyph.

Characters can display the glyphs on their character model in game (player will see a symbol on the character model with the corresponding shape). However, only some glyphs can be used in combat.

Character Model

Glyph model (GEM) is a 3D model used for rendering a particular glyph.

To give you an idea, I also made some simple animations in the form of an animation clip with various glyphs on it. It’s called: “Tutorial: Player Character Animations”.

Character Model:

The character model is just a model file that contains the model that will replace the character model when you use “show character model” command.

For example, you can try this animation clip to try out some basic glyphs.

Character Model:

The first animation clip is simple glyph, like an orange triangle that you can’t use in battle. It’s not a nice animated model, but we have to use it. The second animation clip with basic glyph is what you see after the tutorial animation. This clip features a triangle, an orange triangle and four hexagons.
