About the character portraits:

Once we setup our character there are obviously things that will not change, like the facial structure, body height and size, tatoos, etc. However, there are lots of things that can change, like clothes, hairstyle, accessories, or even just the poses.

Will we be able to change those things and re-take our character portrait whenever we want? Or maybe once every couple months or something like a mini driver's license photo?

I assume we will be able to change our clothes on our fully body avatars at will, and I think it makes sense to retake a character portrait that we aren't happy with.

Thanks,
Dacil

Ok this is extremely important and if you have time to answer:

  • Will there be nipples
  • Will I be able to make a "blind" character (ie. with no pupils)
  • Will I be able to crossdress
  • What kind of hat will we get and can I design my own?
  • Will you be able view the whole avatar of another player, akin to ship preview?
  • Can you change clothing and espression later on but prior Incarna?


I have some material for you to consider for the final races you've yet to complete (feel free to discuss this with me when I'm in your building spahming your office):

The differences shown between those two pics of a Brutor seem VERY extreme to me. I surely hope you guys still allow for the hair styles, and MOST ESPECIALLY the facial tattoos that we have. Voluval tattoos are important to us Minmatar. PLEASE PLEASE keep the same facial marks we have now, if you guys want to add additional ones, that would be all well and good.

Any chance I could get a comment from someone about the tattoos?



Tattoos will not be part of the first release. They didn't work well with the facial sculpting and we decided to allow the team to work further on it after the release to get them polished and good. You will then be able to go back to your portrait and add tattoos, both to face and body.


Tattoo's not in the first release. Does that mean there will be mini patches to add them, or are you talking that we will have to wait for the summer expansion for them to come back?

I really hate to sound negative, because I have been waiting for Incarna (and all its prior names) since not long after I started playing.

But, I have to say how absolutely disappointed I am in this decision. Tattoos, especially the facial ones to Minmatar are an integral part of the story line, PF, and in my particular case, RP aspect of my character. I would personally rather wait on the restructuring of the portrait until you guys have had time to give us AT LEAST what we have now. As it is, the new system will be prettier, but will actually be LESS than what we have already. All I can say is I surely hope you guys will reconsider some of this, or get the folks working on facial sculpting to fix it!

Come on CCP. Don't stomp on the PF and RP aspects of EVE just for bling purposes!!!

Give us alliance icon badges to put on our clothes/uniforms, visible on avatar.

Also would be cool to have a large copy of old avatar pic ingame alongside new char creator during the changeover to make it easier to maintain a resemblance.

Since we are on the topic of moustache's, will we be able to also have manly beards of epic proportions?

I'm thinking like Santa Clause (or the guy from the MoH commercial) style/manly scotsman esque...

Pretty please :)

I'm disappointed that there are still going to be 24 "strong archetypes"... one of the biggest problems, RP-wise, for EVE is the fact that there appear to be only 24 characters in the whole game. When I first signed up, I thought I had created a relatively distinct character, but now it seems he looks just like every other character in his bloodline. I really hope you'll give us more variety in hair styles, facial hair, costumes and accessories.

At present, for male Khanids it's basically "hat or no hat".

Do not want.
There's no reason other than sheer bloody mindedness to force this down everyones throats, as you said in blog you view it as impossible to make something new that will make everyone happy, so just leave us alone if we don't give a monkeys about WiS/Ambulation/Incarna/Whatever you call it next, since it's already been stated that you wont need to do it I'll bet theres a fair proportion of people will get out of ship once or twice, think "meh" and then never touch the feature again (rather the same as the freebie ships you give out, quick cursory glance then filed with other useless junk) and frankly I'd rather keep my current chars portraits than be forced to spend an age getting them all right again. Who cares if it means you cant do station stuff, moderately pretty but useless fail of a feature is visible years away as being useless fail. (Normally about this point I'd suggest doing something worthwhile like upgrading the old and clunky ui, but after the last attempt at a few small changes, I think I'll just shut up about that ugh)

Proof positive that people will find something to moan about in even the most inoffensive blog update.

Pretty miffed we can't change bloodline (I went Achura because I was told to during the trial and didn't know any better, and back then pre-remaps it did matter, but it's a minor gripe really.

People not interested in WiS can elect to not update their character and be a silouette - simple?

I'm pretty excited for this!

I do want to say that while I respect the idea of keeping character's race & background important, if everyone can simultaneously change facial structure and skin tone, it makes sense that they can change race as well.

I say this because I chose my races based entirely on appearance. 100%. I'm a Jin-Mei because I dislike the way the Gallenteans and Intaki look. This effect is even more prominent now - since neural remaps were introduced, appearance is the primary differentiator between races. So if Jin-Mei are no longer the coolest looking Gallenteans (to me; I know this is subjective), then I'd want the ability to switch to a cooler looking race. WIthout being charged $15 to do so.

But the new stuff looks great, and I'm definitely stoked to see it! Very Happy

Okay, nipples - please make so if the Americans really object to nipples your localisation can turn them off *for them* (a tick option perhaps, beside portrait as it is being created, or a game option that makes their client turn them off if there are parental controls applied). The rest of us already know we come with nipples and can't hide them (except under shirts etc).

Pupils (or lack of) as well as iris (or lack of) and colour of the sclera (the 'white' of the eye) - can we modify these? Also can we choose from several metallic finishes for pupil / iris / sclera, as well as the option of smooth orb / faceted orb (and size/shape of faceting)? Alternately can we give them the 'god my eyes hurt damn this light is bright I've been drunk for the last ten days' look, you know, the seriously bloodshot been on the ganja for too long look?

It‘s not impossible to think that in the future you may clone jump into bodies (clones) of different races, bloodlines and even genders, but that function will not be available on Incursion launch.


Might this imply then, that in the future we may even be able to tackle that big bugbear, "Name change"..???

(Very impressed, btw...)

Looking forward to testing this on Sisi... Any word on which races/bloodlines will be available to test?
