the reason is because those folk would not be sure in what direction that special place is so they wouldn't know what way to pray in space. so they just didn't go.


Actually a special council created guidelines for that a few years ago, so it's no longer an issue.

Try working with the Khanid bloodline. I got some pretty nice "Middle Eastern" results (though, Cyrus here could also be mistaken for Native American... oh well). Wink

Posting to confirm I'm actually a Khanid arab.

Great now religions start solving problems we would not have without them (wasn't that the job of politicians?)

I'm waiting for the moment Christians build crosses with built in gyroscopes and RCS so that it isn't upside down in space...

Satanists just have to reverse the polarity on the INRI(tm) Gyroskope.

It's not a skirt, it's a kilt!Laughing

Also I find Ammarians to be more of Meditteranean heritage for the most part. Not really Middle Eastern.

I sort of made a native american..out of a brutor.

Had to go pretty extreme, didn't quite make it (had to go red hair to help the skin color perception along a bit and wear dread-locks), and any others would look close to identical.

If theres a point its, not that you can't do everything but that huge population groups are left out in a futuristic scenario.

When they were all cartoons and half didn't look quite human it wasn't as stark an issue.

There is no getting around that there's been an attempt to make the characters has realisticaly human as possible. That being the goal ... setting truly human faces in a futuristic world, looking at whats been left out and you'd see a prepoderance of the most "developing nations" .

There is an implication that those people haven't made the cut in the future.

It is completely addressable within the current software I think and , giving people examples and an opportunity. I swear that they made the facial colors for the brutor darker from the first release to the second day but given that no one else feels like it , its probably just a faulty memory of mine. You can't make a brutor look like any true african, or even most dark skin brazillians, but at least you have a wider smattering of the tones of americans with african ancestry. Hopeuflly with the release of incarna, they'll have the character creator sub contractor work on adding a few more options to each faction and allow players to petition faction and bloodline switches.

The whole character creator is garbage, I have seen better ones in PC games more than 10 years old.
Every character is humanoid and basically characters looks much as we see them today with only a few cosmetic changes.
My original toon had long hair and an eyepatch which is no longer available to Caldari.
Why couldn't CCP have put a little more imagination into the concept?
Do many of you remember the Bar in the very first starwars movie? Now those toons would have given us something to work with.

If they had arabian descent in EVE someone would make a representation of Muhammed and they would pew pew the server room in London IRL.

I'm sure you could make one.

There's nothing that different about Arabic people, no matter what faux news may want you to believe.

If they wanted to have a different faction for each and every slight variation from country to country you'd have seen Incarna bumped back even more years.

There are 3 races on earth, Mongoloid, Caucasoid, and Negroid. you can make all 3 races with the character creator.

Arabians are mostly Caucasoid.

Of course they are SOL. Could you imagine the calamity at every stargate because Concord would have to pull each one of these pilots over and check their cargo holds and do pod scans before jumping? Besides, CCP didn't have the manpower to design vests with TNT strapped to it for their clothing options. I don't want to sound stereotypical or anything, but have you failed to consider the lag in every system from them bumping into stations in attempts to destroy them? Would you want that? It would be sheer pandamonium, and likely the downfall of Eve itself.

1) Those characters just wind up hitting the self-destruct button anyway.
2) They would just wind up wearing hoodies and so their face wouldnt be seen anyway.



uhhh Salaam Aleikum i guess then...
