Yessssssss!

Vherorior are unrecognizable in the new editor! I'd like to have a total remake, even another race would be fine!


This. FFS, I'll even take Seibestor instead. I'll stay Minmatar just let me change to something that remotely looks like I used to.

I don't have a particular problem with my current choices, but it would definitely be nice for other people.

Also might have the bonus of getting rid of the thousands of Archura alts.

I fully support a one time change to race/bloodline. When I started playing a year ago, all new characters started with the same skills/attributes/isk. The only reason I picked the race/bloodline I did, was because I liked the appearance.

I spent around 6 hours making faces from all the different races/bloodlines before finally deciding on the one I did. Now, overnight, he's turned completely asian and after spending 3 hours yesterday on trying to make him look non-asian, I had to shut off the computer and take a break.

Nay to free bloodline change. You can not change who you are.
But it would be interesting to have possibility to buy "cosmetic surgery" to make you look like different race/bloodline.Smile

Change of such magnitude schouldn´t be available free of cost IMHO nor almost mandatory. Like in the real world. You are not satisfied with your look? Well bad luck, but you can always have plastic surgery to help you with that.
On other hand there could be other way to make it work within eve-world logic. Simply to put changes in your new clone, so you can change your race/bloodline as you wish but at cost of loosing your current clone along with all the implants and jumpclones.

In principia i just hate the possibility of free race/bloodline change, just because someone does not like how does some race/bloodline looks like, without any other backroud reasons and plausible explanation how to do so within rules of the game-world.

Although I'm satisfied with my bloodline, it would be nice to give people the option to change their bloodline, since the new character creation is so different from the old one.

I personally don't want to change my bloodline but I can see people wanting too. There shouldn't be such a big issue with it, it doesn't change gameplay at all, and ccp already scrapped our old identities.

Entire roleplay bios scrapped. I would go as far as to say that CCP doesn't like the RP community(I don't RP). A while back they nerfed the bio character limit, then they nerfed the note character limit, which cut some stories in half. Now they take something that, to an RPer, is one of the most important things in the game. Their Character. Or I guess the representation of their character.

Hell if I had my way, i would allow you to have a 2nd(mixed) bloodline. Why cant a Brutor have a kid with a Caldari? I would think it would be quite common among the new hipster pod pilots.

I'm in the same boat as you. I started my character in 2007 and the only reason for selecting the bloodline I chose then was for the starting advantage because picking a bloodline changed the stats and the skills you were given to start with.

Also, I didn't check with other Caldari bloodlines, but why did CCP remove the long hair from Civire they had when testing on Sisi? :/

I wouldn't mind a gender change either, for silly reasons. CCP seems a little sexist right now because female characters seem to have better features; or maybe I'm the only one who notices?

Edit: Forgot to state also that it would appear some bloodlines have this odd ability to make you have a fixed appearance no matter what options you take to "individualize" yourself.

Exactly! How do you get to:
<---This from This ?! (same as in sig)

I was under the impression that Minmatar were modeled after all tribal societies on Terra.
I thought it was cool how european-features could be part of them. Not surprising actually, as the Hungarians can attest to. Very Happy

How did I interpret this?

Minmatar means heavy-metal, tribal-clothing/tattoos, Norse ship-names, etc...

All in all we are talking about pockets of Terran colonies that were trapped on unfriendly planets, plunged into darkness after the collapse of the EVE-gate, but still at minimum an entire planet (Matar). Not to mention the enslavement, and subsequent slave-breeding programs by the Amarr.

Minmatar doesn't really mean 'one race', but rather several different races trapped together, working together, surviving together as many tribes united under a Republic.

So I'd bet that there would be several Vherokior running around with slightly european-features.

EDIT to add: I'd rather support more character features than actual bloodline-change.
I'm actually tied to my character's back story.

Supported because there needs to be some kind of option.

EDIT II: Changed portrait, looks batter, but I still support others who are not satisfied.

If this had been done with the release, I could see it. Post release it's a bigger issue. I don't agree with radically changing every aspect at a whim but I do think that it should have been made possible with the update.

As has been stated, many chose their characters for the looks but long before that - you had "racial bonuses" that directly effected the abilities of characters along the lines of what they wanted to do in the game.

Allowing them to diversify their appearances 1 time, that had no other effects, would work.

It would actually "fix" some RP issues - "I like that groups mind-set. I needed this groups abilities when I started". Those types can fix the problem.

Of course I support this. Whatever the reasons people want to change their race or bloodline, it's only fair that with a new character creator, people get another chance to choose what they think looks best to them.

My car dealer doesn't paint my black car red because there's new car paints (and no, the fact that I can pick a whole palette from scarlet red to burgundy red doesn't change that), it's not that it's better or worse, it's just a matter of personal preference. It should be respected and a lot of bloodlines are totally different now.

If it is offered then I really hope its chargeable, just like changing a portrait was.

As some one who has had the same char since I made him in 2005 I'd welcome a change.

Strategic choices I made when it mattered should be free to change when the developer renders them pointless. We see this all the time when a ship is nerfed/fixed/redesigned/watever. Players will switch to whatever ship suits them after the change.

Also where is my blue plastic shirt and hair?? http://evefaces.com/?CyanAngel

I approve this!

I started back in 2009 and then we had these old portraits which looked rather 'outdated' or clumpsy. Back in the old days you didn't choose a certain race/bloodline/ancestory for it's looks, but you chose what was best for your first ever career in EVE.
Now they released the new character revamp, making it an important part of the game with it's realistic looks. It looks awesome and for that reason people care how they look now. It is not fair for these people to have chosen a race in the old days and let them stick to that race/bloodline/ancestory forever, keeping the reasons above in mind, after these amazing changes to your looks.

For me this means I'm a negro. I DO NOT WANT TO BE ONE. I chose the brutor bloodline for its stats not the looks, because the portrait in the old days meant nothing. Heck, in the old days you could only dream of your character getting out your ship someday and meet up with other people. Today however, the portrait has something that's really cool and is WORTH showing off. This makes me feel frustrated, because I can't be the race/bloodline I want to be.

We should be free changing the either the race or bloodline or ancestory we are in now. Nowadays the choice is more aesthetic dependant rather than stats dependant, like in the old days. Having made a choice in the past and punishing customers for an unforseen change years later in the game is not fair.

So I approve Jenny Cameron in this going motion.

From the day one in EVE Civires are stated as strict militaristic people who prefer short hair. Having some damned Civire hippies running around smoking ganja would just kill the immersion for me so THANK YOU CCP for not giving Civire the long hair option... It is the same with other Caldari. The society is strict and militaristic so it is good for the immersion to limit use of long hair.

"Caldari society is steeped in military tradition. As a people, its members had to fight a long and bloody war to gain their independence, and even had to surrender their home planet to their hated enemies, the Gallenteans."

"As long as you keep in line, do your job, uphold the laws and so forth, life can be fairly pleasant and productive. But for those who are not cut out for this strict, disciplined regime life quickly becomes intolerable. They lose their respect, family, status, everything, and the only options left to them are suicide or exile."

Yeah, no hippies allowed :)

Voting in support of a bloodline change.

Like alot of people back when I started the bloodline you chose had a real in game impact. ever since they removed that and I've learned more about the lore of the game I've been wishing that I could go and change my bloodline to get the appearance that I wanted. of course back then it wasn't as big of an issue for me since I had managed to create an avatar that I at least somewhat liked.

With the new character creation though I havn't been able to do that. even after spending hours playing with options nothing quite seems right and I don't think that we should be forced to "settle" for an avatar that we don't like based solely on decisions made years ago using an avatar creation method that has since been replaced.

My smug sense of superiority is impossible to recreate without one of those Amarr hoods. Now my Khanid just looks like some Asian guy.

Actually it's not even the clothing style. I'm all for the popularity of Gap clothing 20000 years in the future. But I don't like the fact that my Khanid has incurable grandpa face.
