Didn't knew where to exactly open this topic , i apologise in advance.

This option was available in the past at the time i decided to take a break from Eve.Surely CCP had reasons to give us this option don't you think?

Can someone that knows give me a simple yes or no please? Thank you in advance.

I will make a prediction.

6 months time, Aurum for portrait swap. 10K should cover it.

In which case, no it is gone because there is no longer much need for it as per the screenshot i posted last time...

Well i believe it was usefull , even more so now because after you validate a new character the facial morphing changes are fixed , you can only change the aesthetics with recustomization.

So in my case to answer your question it would be usefull because i have this character that i spend on hours to make him look the way i wanted but for various reasons i am going to delete this char and create a new one , so been able to just swap portraits would save a lot of already spended precious time , plus it is impossible to recreate a ready portrait 100% on a new char manually.

Unless CCP give us the option to recustomize the facial characteristics in the future....Then yes it would be not so usefull.

Thanks for the answers everyone

It would not be enough to just swap portraits. You would also need to have exactly same body features for your new char or otherwise the portrait would not properly reflect your new char.

So it would be practically useless feature unless combined with "copy body from old char to new char" feature.

It's called a petition to have your full-customization reset.
Done it a few times myself.

With the above, why would you want to waste $20?

And yes, the feature was purposely disabled with no current plans to bring it back; as of a few months ago anyways.

Ditto. You can petition to have your customization reset and rebuild your body; just use it wisely.

Unless you already built a better body and wanted to swap it for yours...
