This was my #1 feature wish for the character creator. Good job.

I hope that in the longer term CCP will allow full recustomisation of appearance without charging real-life money for it. I know the attribute remap model has been suggested. Is there a plan for this at the moment?

I'm not a fan of real-life money microtransactions - they disadvantage people on lower incomes (particularly younger people and the unemployed) and seem counter to CCP's 'expansions are free' philosophy - but ISK-based ones might both fulfil a need for more ISK sinks and sell CCP some PLEX.

Good.

Will this remove the full blown customization option we currently have on chars that get that annoying question on log in?

I think the general idea in regards to the 're-customization' is that once your born and your body grows and matures, you can't go back inside the womb and try for another shot at longer legs and a bigger slong. So why you can change your hair do, and get tattoos, new clothes like people in general on a day to day bases. You don't really get a shot at having your body rebuilt.

P.S. Good work CCP! Furthermore, I support the idea of having techo implants and such showing. I'd also like some accessories to make you look more like an actual Naval Officer, rather than a street hooligan ;-)

You will not have to spend one Interstellar Kredit, kronur, dollar, euro, yen, lira... not one cent of any currency, real or virtual, to re-customize your character. Re-customize as much and as often as you want, with character re-creation the way it should be - flexible, unlimited and free.

i didn't want to trust that when testing on sisi, but seems this time it was really true o_O

edit :
btw, now that this miceotransaction is gone, and with the article saying that things like "race, bloodline or gender" are not available, i'm thinking that there more and more chance of them adding a MT for changing gender/bloodine change.
as lots of people are asking for, at the tools and paying method for doing it seems way closer than before...
would be pretty interesed using 1 plex to change the bloodline of some alts

Although in YC 113 you grow up new clone every couple days so who cares if you slightly change him...

Played around with this a bit on the test server, and it looks very good. But why is there no portrait swap any more? Will this feature be coming back?

Edit: I realised after fiddling around on the test server that my character has stupidly big ears. Because this requires re-sculpting, the re customisation doesn't help me fix that. If I can be immortal, put implants in my head and transport my consciousness into another body, surely a bit of plastic surgery isn't too much to ask? Laughing

Great update and I am very pleased to hear it is all free. This is a big step for the game industry. Nearly every company seems to be trying to rake in money every chance they can get. With the most detailed character creator system ever, CCP isn't charging any extra to use it.

I would like the option of being able to have the no portrait Icon until I view someones Info like it was before. Only because it was very useful for keeping track of people. A new feature that works in a similar manner would be fine too. Thanks

Also, I have no idea what people are talking about with Microtransactions. The Plexes only give you isk. They wont give you items that you can only get with the plex. Back with I was playing combat arms, they started out with microtransactions that'd have you cosmetic improvements... Then they'd let you buy some gear that gave you a 'slight edge' Now they sell equipment that gives you wallhacks, flamethrowers, miniguns, grenade launchers, proxy mines, etc that you can only get through the MT system. Its bull****. They even let you kick people from the server at will. CCP hasn't done anything close to that and I don't believe they ever will.

When the update goes live, character re-customization will be added as a new option in the station services list.

This is one station service that probably should have been available only through CQ. It would just make sense, as opposed to some other coming changes (as in having to leave your ship every single time you dock).

Isnt it a bit silly to make it unlimited and free?

Im just thinking that people are gona be trying to radiaclly alter their portrait frequently as some kind of mind game in pvp.

Wouldnt it generate a worryingly bigger amount of strain on the server?

Free change once every month or so I'd understand, similar to the way attribute alteration is. But free any time? You must be confident the server can handle the extra traffic

What worryingly big amount of strain are you talking about? The image server isn't the game server and your picture changes aren't going to be updated in real time, so I'm sure the server can handle the strain. For everyone else it's just a normal loading of image that you already do for every character, something you can forcefully prevent if you think it might be causing issues.

Oh my God!! Will it ever stop? At least half of the posts in this thread are people complaining and demanding OTHER STUFF. PLEASE stop the constant whining.

But I digress... Thanks CCP for yet another awesome feature that we all wanted!

While this is all so much awesome and kickass, it doesn't matter any more than a hill of beans to me and many others. When in H*ll are ya gonna give us a Use Random Portrait button outside of the Character Creator so that we can HAVE a portrait TO customize. Or better yet, fix whatever it is that is stopping so many of us from accessing the CC in the first place. It's been almost two months now and still nothing for those of us with the frozen-loading-bar syndrome. Evil or Very Mad

How difficult would it be to allow you to select multiple body mods from the same group - for example, there is no reason not to allow an ear piercing in both ears, or a nose and an ear piercing.
This could get silly if someone added all of them, yes, but for most of the options it would be beneficial to allow mixing.
Tattoo + Tattoo = more tattoo options.
Piercing + Piercing = piercing combinations
Scar + Scar = well f***ed up, and something many players might want.

Given it seems that you have quite limited resources for creating more clothing/modifications (as hinted at by the tiny list of clothes/glasses) - if you allow mixing of options, you will in effect create a lot more variability without too much extra effort.

As an absolute minimum, you need to allow combinations of piercings, as I believe at the moment, you cannot have both ears pierced at the same time - a fairly basic option.

I've always thought that changing clothes, hair, pose, etc should be free and available any time in station, so it's good to see that CCP agrees.

Also yay to new options!Very Happy

I think it might be slightly better if there is an ISK cost involved in redesigning.
It's not a big thing, but I'd like it to be a choice of some kind, rather than just a "hey I'm drunk, let's see just how dumb I can look"

Oh, one more thing - can you have Minmatar racial tattoos.
And can you have your fiction guys go work on some basic ones that have meaning to them. Even if those ones don't come right now, it would be good if you were working on it.

(Actually, this could be a good thing to be done specifically in a Matari tattoo parlour in Incarna)

A wonderful decision, making recustomization free AND adding much wanted features such as tattoos and accessories.

I wonder if this was planned from the beginning (in which case you should have made it clear) or decided after all the whining and moaning? Either way, great job and thank you CCP!


It was mentioned back in January in a dev blog by CCP Caedmon.




Indeed it was, my bad...though it wasn't pointed out that it would be free and not some microtransaction shenanigans. Plus he said it's in 'early design phase' so i doubt anyone expected to see anything this soon, before incarna :P

Maybe killer2 will have a chance to make you take out the (tm) out of Soon(tm).
