I shouldn't have to change my portrait because I put a different shirt on.

Isn't your clothes in the portrait?

I can see an argument against this as you have always been wearing what your portrait is showing.

But, I would support not having to repose your portrait after changing clothes, with an auto repose or something.

I suggested in my own (abeit now burried assembly hall thread) pretty much what you're suggesting. Obviously I'm going to give my support.


-3.3- The Character Creator
I have a bone or two to pick with it (dev pun intended).

Yes, the Character creator CCP has developed with their Carbon tech resources is amazing, but it also has it's imperfections.
Currently, the NEx vanity items are indestructible. If you are podded with your monocle, it doesn't dissapear. This is a problem, as these vanity items are also on the market. The market for anything indestructible is doomed to eventually fail as supply increases and demand decreases (less people will want one as everyone already has one, suddenly the ones without monocles stand out).

Make vanity items destructible, but also less of an incentive to gank (current monocle wearers beware, 'THEY' are out to get you).
The character recustomisation should only be used for our photos, not our real time avatars. Changeing clothes outside of the recustomisation session should be as easy as refitting a ship: simply stand infront of your mirror and drag a piece of clothing onto your avatar. Rescustomisation should be kept as a passport photo opportunity/updater. I'm sure no one in their right mind always wears what they had on 5+ years ago when they took their last passport photo.

Here is the catch though. Make the passport photo update automatically every time you add time to your account. This is for both lore, and practicality reasons. For starters, it means that someone who 'loaned' a monocle for their photo and then resold it only has it until his next Liscence renewal (there's the lore refrence, when you update your liscence, you need to submit a new photo, nifty, no?). On a practicality level, since you already save the expressions, lighting and pose, automating the entire process for each character once a month shouldn't be a big problem for the briliant AI programmers at CCP.

Additionally, with direct implications to this, add an option on the CQ mirror to access the garderobe (you know, the clothes dresser?), which would basically be a real time catalogue of all your accessible accessories (like a station item hangar but for clothes).

I know my idea still means you end up getting a new photo every now and then, but it sure as hell beats needing a new one every single time you change anything.

EDIT: Shameless self promotion - any support to my own thread is also appreciated (it's more about changes to the NEx store than it is about the character creator).
