Exclamation Incursion 1.1 coming 18th Jan (new character creation, last chance for old portraits)


Quote:
As our players are probably aware of now, we are shipping a new awesome character creator as a part of our last Incursion release this January. We here at CCP believe that we are making history - a milestone in how character creation should look and feel in computer games with the capabilities to finely sculpt the appearance of your character with such incredible detail - and this makes us very excited. But creating a character is only the first step. What happens to these character portraits when we are flying in space? Is my computer supposed to handle rendering dozens of these portraits when I open my address book? Or even thousands of portraits when trading in Jita or taking part in a fleet fight?
Quote:
Another heads up for all our players; you will have to recreate your character portrait using the new character creator after it has been deployed. This means that your old character portrait will not be accessible anymore! If you want to preserve the old character portrait in high resolution, you should log into the game and use the capture portrait option while it still exists.

Well i logged into sisi to check ont he progress of the carbon character creator ( is was fugly as hell the last time I looked) and my Caldari lady is an absolute babe now. I didn't see any hairstyles like yours Tat but maybe it's because they're race and bloodline specific?

Here's what i've got:

Before:


After:

I tried the SiSi client a few months ago and the character creation was buggy beyond belief. I've tried loading it on my Mac EVE client and it won't work, so I'll have to wait until Monday to try it out (hopefully it'll still be live on the test servers).

My first task is to attempt a Gordon Freeman.

At least all the males in EVE won't look tremendously and unavoidably evil.

Thats a shame. My main doesn't looks evil per say but he does have one of the most badass 1000 yard stares i've seen in a portrait and I just want to be able to emulate his look with the new tech.

I predict that in a few years we will all get hit hard by the nostalgia stick about our old portraits. Although Im very excited for the new character creator.

You guys can download the patch now (do it manually from the website or log in and download the automatic client). It's 1286MB big, so better start now! The servers should be up by 1600 UTC.
