This would be great if the server was responding.

I get a 404 when I try to look at my old portrait

CCP Purple Tentacle understands the attachment we have to our current portraits and has set up a database allowing access to them even after the character creation update in Incursion 1.1.0. Read all about the Portrait Preservation Project in his latest dev blog.

Superior? Then why thehell can't you look under 55-90 as an Amarr? Lol superior my ass, sob had one thing eight and that was letting you actually design your own look... This new creator hemlocks every damnit moral of unique ingenuity by forcing customization options on you beforehand.

I don't want a huge bulbous nose, to look old as dirt, or have weird ass bulging eyebrow muscles. Race change please or let us ACTUALLY be able to customize our character.

How about this, dear godlike developers, in your great wisdom: give the OPTION to people to keep their old portraits (instead of offering some labyrinthine method to retrieve them that did not work for me), the OPTION to either keep or change the portraits that belong to characters we've spent years of our lives with? Have you heard of this radical concept? THE OPTION?!

I've gotten used to your dictatorial, arbitrary BS before (yeah, so much for your reputation as developers who constantly revise the game based on player inputs), but this is just too much. Why should I have to hunt down some obscure document, follow its obscure instructions (which failed), and end up with the choice of blank portraits or new portraits? I want my old portraits, DAMMIT! How hard was it to give people the OPTION?! Rocket science? Bah.

Here's a big, prolonged, heartfelt hand gesture to all of you. Enjoy your dictatorship, I'm done.

Thanks for this CCP !
It's a really good idea 'cause ours old avatars were associated with a concept that has not necessarily been able to recreate with the new character creator (notwithstanding the quality of this one).Smile

Firstly, the archive, nice idea I guess but I imagine anyone who really wanted a copy of there old selves before the clone-lift likely has one already. But hey I guess there are a few tards out there who could't figure it out or forgot before going gaga over the latest and greatest, so kudos. Who knows, maybe my house will burn down and I'll be happy it's still available some place else.Wink

As for the new and improved... okay, nice and shiny n all, could have been a little more intuitive (ie: is there a way to manipulate the skull? Are pilots glasses really the only option for us space faring aces? Why were some of the changes so indiscernible subtle that you couldn't visibly see them?)and more options for facial hair, clothing, why no close up options for your icon with a thriving public market, a bar or with a space dock as a backdrop (like your fav ship maybe)?

I was only really becoming comfortable with the software on my third try after being DC'ed twice after over an hour of humming and hawing (choked). Another thing I would have liked to see would have been having the basic features that we used for our old look to be incorporated into the new using facial re-constructive parameters, and then we just tweeeek.

Laaastly, why couldn't we have several poses to add to our personal library so that every few days we could sign into a randomly refreshing pose and maybe even a change of clothing? Very Happy Well, maybe in the future of the future eh!

I am heartened to see that not everyone has drank the coolaid. (drank? drunk?)...whatever.

We absolutely should be given the choice to retain our old character portraits. That's who I am! Was!

Oh the humanity!
