EVE actually has aliens, but I guess you mean intelligent alien civilisations and/or horny green space chicks who otherwise look and act exactly like humans. Such things are not necessary to get a scifi feel. Or are you claiming, that when you think about firefly, the new battlestar galactica, the terminator, bladerunner, the matrix series or dune, that you don't get the scifi feeling from any of them? For me those are some of the best scifi that has ever been made and including aliens in their respective universes wouldn't have added anything of value.

well it would be nice if the picture (avatar) was a bit more dynamic. SAY, if u have implants plugged into your head it would show on the picture as in you have some stuff on the head or something.. then if u have a say! slave set it would look one way and if u have normal implants it will look difrent..

all the rest clothing etc.. im sure we will see much more of that when we can walk in stations.. like going into a PLAYER owend store and buy some stuff for isk.. that the player made himself.. with bpo of clothes and other cool assesories.. just wait.. a new world will open when it comes, IF IT COMES they been speaking about it since ummm 2005 ?

Can't be bothered to read 7 pages but back in the 1980's everyone thought we'd have flying cars by now and eat meals in pill form in our floating bubble houses. The future never looks how you imagine it.

OP is right. The race identity with diverse design of player factions and the feel of futurism is pretty much gone.When it should be about about the distinct look and character of all 4 races.

It's very hard to tell who's caldari or gallente or minmatar,(ok winmatar is black and Ammarrr is old grumpy looking people" But yes everyone is a clone now (pun intended).

However it seems a logical step to take after washing out of bloodines from the game mechanics.

It's not like we are flying with spaceships and jump cloning all over the NOT our current universe. Sure, yep Eve has no sci.fi. Rolling Eyes

The way I see it:
Amarr: very religious, imperialistic: this would mean fairly utilitarian clothing, robes and possibly highly ornate clothes for officials and high class citizens. Not much colour, most likely brown/black, possible golden or gloss black decorations. I'm pretty sure you can get this effect with the new character creator.
Caldari: Militaristic, strict: clothing resembling officer uniforms or business attire for any officials, jackets for the working man - still slightly official looking. Again, not much colour variation with white/grey/grey-blue mix for the more official clothes, possibly dark grey/black for more casual ones. Still doable within character creator.
Gallente: Personal freedom, very few limitations on what's allowed or not, body modding (thank you CCP for the Silver Twin), indulging in ones desires: while the officials would most likely be dressed in fairly reserved but ornate clothing, normal people would wear clothes ranging from quite casual to pretty outrageous. All colours of the visible spectrum possible, maybe with green emerging as vaguely dominant. Body modding significantly adding to variety. Definitely not possible with the current character creator.
Minmatar: Strong, independent, clan-based. Clothing utilitarian and durable. Clan markings most likely on the body rather than on the clothes, making clothes not as important as tattoos or piercings or whatever constitutes as a mark of belonging to a certain clan. Thus colours would be simple brown(possibly a bit reddish)/black. Not really possible at the moment.

I for one am devastated that I can't make my avatar look like a 5' tall Eastern European female shot-putter.

Joking aside, I'm sure there are trading characters that would really like to be old, fat short and, y'know, looking like Winston Churchill or Eric Pickles or something, and others that wish they could make a proper wrinkly old character etc. It's all about diversity, and 9 t-shirts, 9 jackets and 9 pairs of shoes (or however many it is) is frankly pretty poor when most of the avatars themselves look the same bar the hair and the colours now anyway.

Can't be an Arnie, can't be a Big Show, can't be a Verne Troyer, can't be a Dawn French, can't be a Jo Brand (well thank goodness for small mercies, I guess) but it's all too limited. We all look like we just stepped out of an L.A. gym.

I am disappoint.

I think you're underestimating the convenience of a pocket - James West

seriously, future fashion might not change that much. Im talking about style. We still use suits nowadays, although in the 30' people used em too. New materials and cutting styles were introduced.
