What happened to "transfer character picture" from the old "EVE insider"?

In the old EVE Insider, you had the option to transfer a character picture from one character to another one of your characters, i.e. if you made a mistake when you created the avatar picture on your main character, you could make a new character with an identical bloodline and transfer the new picture to the main character, for a small fee of course.

What happened to this option?

I think there was another special option as well, but I can't remember what it was right now.

Every improvement CCP has made also came with inherent setbacks*. Think Trinity engine for ships (centre is off), new nos/cyno graphics (they're crap), tier 2 BCs (severely OP), new Avatars (lacking EVE-like aesthetics), Titans (can't be balanced). The list is long...

You can add this bit to that list.

* Team Gridlock is the exception

That's a bit sad. I would really love to be able to remake my avatar, since I'm not completely satisfied with the result.

Maybe that could be a new option for the Noble Exchange..?

I'll make a new thread in the features area.

Huh !? Did I miss something in your post. You can just change your avatar in any station (Re-custom...).

If you can remake the avatar completely from scratch in stations, then I must have missed something.

I'll have to double-check when I get home.

Currently re-customization is only available for the cosmetic aspect of your character(hair, clothing, accessories, etc). You CANNOT change physical features such as face structure, weight, sculpting.

They did away with the portrait swap once the new character creation system was added. It will not surprise me that in the future the only way to change the actual sculpting of your avatar would be though NeX store.

This feature would not make sense with new avatars. For old picture to fit your new character, it would need to have exact same body features, which is practically impossible to do manually.
