heya, i'm as exited as the next person about the new avatar pics, but but but ...
could we PLEASE get someone or a group of someones to check the avatars being made, cause some of them are really really wrong.
the reason for a avatar (as i see it) is to make the person identifyable for when eventual release of walking in stations, and seriously, some avatars that i have seen, many by pic-links in ingame channels, are downright 2 second slapped together weird angled misfits, some are WAY to dark, some found a way to have a hoodie cover half or more of face ..
i know you say there will be options for editing them when new stuff comes along, but thats not my point.
my point is that i really hope that someone in ccp figures out to make a verification program to say ok to decent avatars and REDO to those that just make weird, ugly and downright wrong avatars.

/end rant .. hopefully others agree ..

Came to thread thinking you would complain about your ability to get good characters out of the new creator...
People are making bad chars? Thats their right, they will use all the latitude of adjustments that CCP enables. And personally I think it is still too limiting, but mostly on the number of art assets.

So your saying that there should be no ugly capsuleers? I completely agree, just like there are no ugly people in real life right? I mean what are they thinking putting ugly people in a game that is supposed to be "realistic"

you can't honestly be serious about this. remember what one person thinks looks good another person might not. I'm pretty sure from the confidence of your post that you think your own avatar is pretty good looking right? well I for one don't think so. but that is all a matter of opinion, so no, no there should not be any "verification of avatars"

i was thinking of it in relation to the walking in stations thing when it gets released.

dont know how many of you would want to run into some of the avatars i have seen pics of.

but seeing as most, if not all, of those bothering to respond to thread obviously wouldnt mind bumping into a couple of very odd looking darkhoodied ppl and still buy them drinks, well ..

wonder if there's light on the other side ..

unless I'm wrong I'm guessing you are referring to some Amarr characters. All I can say is the old editor allowed that and, tbh from what I have seen under the hood, we are lucky we can't see the face Razz

FYI, CCP have admitted that there is a bug currently effecting a large no. of Amarr characters which results in a hood being applied irregardless of player choice (this includes yours truly). Other character renders are not working as players have saved. I suggest wait until this patch settles down and/or incarna is released in full before worrying too much about other character portraits etc.

I would like to lend my support to this post.
I don't want to have to look at people who aren't as good looking as me.

(repost on this topic from an AH thread)

Amarr: Amarr had hoods, Ni-Kunni had gaunt appearances, Khanid were portly.
Caldari: Deteis had cybernetics, Civire had weapons on their armor, Achura had earpieces
Gallente: Gallente had high-fashion clothing, Intaki had long hair, Jin-Mei had oriental clothing.
Minmatar: Brutor had sunglasses (everybody now gets them), Sebiestor had facial implants and tattoos, Vherokoir had tribal jewelry (now they have nearly-closed eyes)

A lot of the things that made a race unique and recognizable are gone now, in the name of vanilla characters. Bring back the uniqueness, or give us back our old character creator that at least let us be unique.

So, you think avatars in stations will be like posters on the poles ? Knowing nowadays CCP, who knows, but I still doubt it...

Or, you know, they will walk like people, lighting and angles will change every moment... never thought about that ?

Oh, and totally wrong forum section on top of that.
