Getting in Character
May 17, 2013

Hey guys!
Fernehalwes here.

We've received a two-tonze truckload of feedback on character creation since the alpha test, and from what I saw in today's build, much has changed since then. If you thought there were a lot of options before, wait until you see all the new ways to customize your avatar, including...

An extended hair color palette, plus a plethora of playful tattoos.

Several new hairstyles for men...

Several new hairstyles for women, including...OMG! Long hair options! And is that a SLIDER on the right for ear size!?
Screenshot


And a slider for height!? What else could there be a slider for!?!??
Screenshot


And purple whiskers!? And purple eyes!?
Screenshot


And OH MY GOD MY EYES THE RED IT BURNS!
Screenshot


Get ready to let your imagination run wild!

Fernehalwes.

Wewt for new Hairstyles! Might be easier to make Lin look older if it looks like her hair has grown (as well as her height and chest >.> Don't judge me!)

I actually tend to agree. I know that in 1.0 everyone thought that too, and they really weren't... but this time around feels different. The most important thing is, they are listening to the players while still making the game their own. Now they just need to tell us when phase 3 starts!

This makes me very very happy. My only issue with the creation tool was the limitations on hair color based on race, and the limited tattoo option.

Well, and the limited mustache option.

For Elezen you basically can pick from this HUGE selection of White, Blonde, Gray, or Black hair... I really hope they let me wear a mustache now, because the only thing close was this weird stache that also have a weird goatee.

Also, I love that the black male actually looks like a black male instead of a white dude in black face, like before.

You must not have played WoW in your day cause this is 10x less "cartoony" than that... I like the look and feel of char's I see here...

Personally I don't mind a bit of subtlety with the hair and eye colors and tattoo options. Some of those tattoos look a bit ridiculous.
Glad to see that there are more options, though.

That's the bottom of the egg shell that it hatched from.

It's an okay tat, I guess, but who would want it on their face?

First hair style reminds me of Rydia/Terra. Nice throwback!

Also happy to see hair that better works for my character.

psst. Video Games are basically cartoons. About the post...the addition of sliders and all those hair options is nice. I stand corrected of my previous char creation posts. Yoshi is really listening to feedback, I love it.

I can't wait until all the people who create an avatar with teardrop tattoos find out what one of the meanings used to be.
