I support this. When making a Khanid female, if you hit random, most of the time the avatar will look like a boy. The best I could do was make myself look like a cross between a Mongolian chipmunk and Rosanne Barr with the lights turn way down. This is entirely unlike my previous portrait who was definately Nippon.

Edit (thanks Jagga Spikes): CCP allows for portrait swaps but they have to be of the same race, bloodline and gender. Which isn't helpful at all in this case.

from Portrait swap FAQ:
"3. Why does gender and bloodline have to match when swapping portraits?
As bloodline and gender define a lot about your character the portraits that are going to be swapped need to have same bloodline and gender. The swapping is only meant to fix elements you are not happy about with your original portrait creation, it is not meant for gender and ancestry changes."

I would like to take the time to point out that the usage of Vherokior with the character I'm using to post says this.

I made this character to be a science and industry alt. I wanted the highest intellect and memory I could get and for this and other stat-based reasons the Vherokior race was superior to the one, or maybe two, others that were close. Just like all the Achura Caldari stat *****s I too am a stat *****.

That is what my choice of Verokior says. At least that's what it said until CCP changed the game so that blood line no longer affected your attributes.

Item #3 of the portrait swap FAQ does not and should not apply to my character because:

#1 What my choice of bloodline says about me is no longer valid due to changes made by CCP.

#2 Due to CCP not implementing a visually pleasing Vherokior blood line it is currently impossible to "fix elements (I am) not happy about" without being able to pick a new blood line at the least and race at the worst.

Through CCP's own actions section three of that FAQ is no longer applicable to me. Sadly, I doubt they would see it that way. As such this suggestion is supported

Yes, please. My avatar was caucasian before Incursion now she's asian. I already have two asian characters, that's why I made a whitey in the first place.

Totally agree, how do Asians go Caucasian, Maori go Asian, etc.

Race change is a must. The new avatar's look so different from the original. My characters look nothing like they did before. and frankly my race looks like ****...

so Supported for Race change

I would definitely pay up to $50 in real cash to be allowed to do this. Otherwise, my character is pretty unplayable.

(They should rather make the generator have more options so you can make the new look closer to the old one)
I do own a Vherokior char and was also somewhat disappointed of a) missing the resembling hair style and b) the eyes looking quite different. However I still like the new look.

I support this - everyone should be allowed to be a beautiful Gallente! Smile

I definitelly agree. I played with the new editor for hours, and while I was satisfied how my alts look, with my main's ancestry I am unable to make anything that I could like.

I support!
We want to change our bloodline, ancestry, even school, like we changed our portrait.
About race change...I think, that if we can redo our origins and appareance,it is best to be able to change everything, and not just a few minor details. :/

I liked caldari deteis when i created my account, but now, with the new charachter creator, i prefer sebiestors, or IntakisConfused I really would change.

It just makes sense to me on too many levels.

1) There is no longer a game mechanic tied to race/bloodline, and so balance or power is not an issue.

2) There were three different reasons people chose particular races/bloodlines in the past: A) Roleplay value (unchanged), B) Mechanical benefits (no longer extant), and C) Appearance (now vastly different). Those who chose them for reason B may have not liked their choice before but felt constrained; so why not let them change to what they really wanted in the first place? Those who chose for reason C are among the most maligned here as some bloodlines' appearance has changed drastically now. Why not give them the chance to pick again since they weren't responsible for the change?

3) It's just good customer service. Since CCP made changes that players may or may not like, why not give the players the option to make the most of it instead of changing what they had and simply telling them to suck it up?

4) New players get all options available to choose from. Loyal, long term customers get 1/12th of the options. Is this fair?

Now, I know many say that you should stick with the decision you made and/or it doesn't make sense that you could change the way you were born. But think of it this way: the decision was made under different circumstances than we have now. And many would not have made the same decision had the situation been different at the time. Second, this isn't real life; so why try to enforce things that people don't like about real life either?

As for a justification in game and in character for it, that's simple. The Sansha assault CONCORD's central genetic record database in an attempt to wipe all cloning data for capsuleers, thus preventing them from coming back after death. Fortunately, a quick thinking computer ace in CONCORD managed to stop the virus before it did too much damage. Sadly, though, some of the data was corrupted and so some capsuleers may notice a few...changes.

Anyway, just trying to keep the thread alive and contribute logical points in the hopes that the devs take a look. I chose my bloodline as a compromise that I could live with. I wanted a different race/bloodline, but they looked terrible to me. I went with what I had though it wasn't the perfect look nor the best RP fit, but it was as good as I could get. Now the race/bloodline I really liked looks quite good and what I have looks VASTLY different from what it did. I'm not terribly pleased really. :(
