Good job young man, captured my $3,000 isk Armani suit pretty well too! (now I just hope i don't need to look like a skinny young asian when I'm remade but at least my grandchildren will see what I really looked like before the accident )

This is the perfect kind of touch from an eve player who understands eve players that CCP needs more of. In some ways it seems like a small thing, but to thousands of players who have spent years with their characters it means a lot. o7

In your demo for the chars, the last char doesn't work. Gives off a 404. I checked with the corp images as well and 512 doesn't work for the demos either. Would have LOVED to have a 512 image of all my mugs. ;)

It would be even better to allow players to still use their old portraits in-game. Most of them won't be able to re-create them in new editor because of no sufficient assets and changed base faces.

FWIW I found 800x800 pixel PNG versions of my portraits by looking in the Portraits cache folder.

Thank you so much. You didn't have to do that, yet still you obviously went to a lot of time and effort to do this.

I'm pretty sentimental about my old guy, it took a long time on the character creation screen back in the day, so thanks for making sure his old face lives on, somewhere.

Nice job, going to be weird seeing people I know in game with different portraits.

Bugger. Nice effort - but if you have to sleep, work *then* check for CCP posts this one is too late for me to save high res pics.
Really wish I'd known about this sooner CCP. On the bright side, at least I'm not running an Athlon XP CPU...

Will the old forums, the ones we're now in use that database of old pictures once it goes into hibernation?

Looks a bit.. well.. undeserved and unpersonal with all those grey Jon Does on the left. Sad

Complete computer noob checking in....

Sorry if this sounds like a comletely ridiculous question, but is this a passive thing where we can at any point refer to our old portaits, following the instructions above, or is this something we have to do before we channge our avatar?

Thanks

Thanks for doing this the new character creator doesn't live up to expecations, you should have the same varity that you had before in the previous version. I am sure it will be great for a vampire game, and I am sure most people will enjoy testing it for CCP.

Here's a quick question, do I have to do this new portrait as soon as I log in? Is there a "second chance" to do it? I ask because I am literally just about to swap characters with someone and wouldn't mind doing the portrait myself!

Character creation crashes my client. And I don't care that it does.
Which would be a problem if I wasn't planning to keep my old profile picture. I have become attached to that profile pic. It has come to represent an ever immersive fantasy of me as a space pilot in a game called eve. Forcing me to change that image of who I have come to think of as myself (in game), is extremely disturbing. I don't even like playing alts as it destroys the illusion that I have a unique identity in this game. I don't think this was thought out and I am sure that there are other players that find this move invasive. I don't remember randomly messing with players accounts in the EULA as the character creation does not effect game play.

I think people get it you have a cool new toy that doesn't effect game play. Good job on forcing it down peoples throats.

So for some reason I was thinking that I would get to select from one of the four snap shots I took during the new character creator once I clicked "Save". Then I got stuck with the current pose my character was in. I really want a do over Sad Will there be a paid character customization service later? Rolling Eyes

That is absolutely AWESOME! CCP Purple Tentacle, my hat is off to you sir. I happen to like all 9 of my old portraits, but especially my main and first character whom I use on Twitter and on my blog. I already saved all of my portraits but what you did is outstanding. When I create my new ones (if I am ever able to access the character creator which isn't working for me currently), it is going to take some time getting used to the new faces. It is gonna feel like someone abducted my crew and replaced them with a bunch of impostors who don't even look like my guys.

Again, kudos to you CCP Purple Tentacle!!! Very Happy
