As the title says, I have the choice of not really cool boots, or ghey-boy shoes.

Now I realize this game is made by Europeans... but come on now; I'm a pod pilot AND some type of Asian that is practiced in the ways of Kung Fu.

Why can't I at least go bare-foot if all you're going to offer are bad choices in footwear anyway?

The rest of us can go barefoot just fine. CCP coded an exception, specifically for you.

It's their subtle way of telling you to get some Odor Eaters.

Holy hell, I just created a second of my characters, and found that completely different races all have the same few clothes options.

What the hell, CCP, too lazy to implement proper racial clothing like we've always had?

I screwed around on this, and another, character, but am willing to wait to create the ones I care about if we're finally going to get proper and distinctive clothing.

Same shirts, same jackets, from Caldari to Gallente?! Is CCP serious that this is their final release of character creation?!

Gay sure is a popular word when it comes to the character creator.

Nobody can see your shoes here. Not even you. So it's really not important. Whenever you see your portrait, just pretend you're wearing Studboots's new Ultragonad model.

Curiously, as I've never seen so many non-gay people complain so much about limited fashion options.

The Amarr got **** stormtrooper boots. I'm serious. They look exactly like what German officers wore in WWII.

Actually, it very well may matter in the future expansions - why else would they make us choose shoes?

How about we scout that bridge when it's time to cross it - which 'very well may' be years from now. I'm sure at that point there'll be a whole closet full of shoes for you to choose from.

Sure. What do the Italians know about shoe making? *eyeroll*

Not enough to get me, or my pals, to wear any, Maybe it's the rage in Europe, I don't know.

I cannot believe how easily satiated and impressed the Eve community is with this. My only guess is that many characters were bought, instead of created, and the buyers are happy to get a free re-do.

For those of us who created our characters in five or six years ago, and were happy with the differences in racial and bloodline clothing and features, this conglomeration of failure really seems lacking.

But I welcome those of you who are young or new to the game. Enjoy your bought / traded characters.

You can also have the "pants on the ground" style of disaffected youth's wearing worn tennis shoes and dragging frayed cuffs (some bloodlines)

I like the boots for most of my characters although the station traders would do fine with pairs of expensive italian loafers.

We definitely need nice boots, brown coats, suspenders and revolvers at our side, then I can sit into the bucket of bolts with my crew and fly from planet to planet, smuggling cargo and avoiding concord patrols... Very Happy

The character creator has lots of potential, just needs more options and ways to make the actual characters more distinguishable as their chosen race/bloodline. I wonder what the original char gen was like in those first months, anyone out there that can give us an idea?
