Just the guys who make girls, now. When you make that girl do you make

a.) The girl of your dreams. Meaning it'd be a dream come true if she were real and ... actually would speak to you?

b.) The girl who got away...because she ran a helluva lot faster than you?

c.) A close approximation of mumsy at age 18?

d.) Your neighbor's wife...the one with marksmanship experience?

e.) YOUR wife, girlfriend or sister?

Thanks for responding. This has had me curious for a very l o n g time.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

I create a character, and just keep on clicking on the random icon on the top left of the screen until I get a character that is not ugly.

I just keep hitting Random till I find one that looks decent. Maybe a little tweak here and there, add clothes, and off to the races.

While I don't go there to design a dream girl or anything, they aren't women I'd turn down lol.. Well with the exception of one, but she's Caldari, and I donno what happened when I made her..


As for why, well if I'm gonna play the game, I'd like to have something nice to look at between missions, fleets, whatever :)

This final line is probably more revealing than you realise.

Usually an amalgamation of real life people (either those I know or public figures) don't generally base them on any one person.

I tried to make this one fit to the character I had in mind. Already enough bubble breasted puppets around as is, no need to add to the pile.

All my female avatars are fierce black chicks. Because I'm pretty sure in a past life I was a black drag queen.

It has to be a, but sometimes I just go for a person that is close to me in a way, so e works too. Though my main is closer to me personally.

None of the above. I'm able to create a more interesting female avatar than the cliché 6' muscular male. My avatar is a tool for characterization.

Beauty is only skin deep.


It is implants and cybernetics that give mere flesh a chance at perfection.

f) none of the above

The Character Creator is very limited when compared to the diversity of RL, and so I just take what the CC provides and make it look beautiful.

f.) Hot chick to take advantage of horny basement dwellers that have never actually met a real woman in person.

After careful consideration, I think that 'f' most closely fits how I make female characters.

I'm my second favourite anime character (and has been for over two decades) and she's my interpretation of what she'd look like in the Eve universe sans tigerskin bikini. My favourite character (this girls fella) was already taken.

Thanks Trebor for making it REALLY difficult to get the DVDs for Urusei Yatsura outside of the US by the way. It cost over a 1000euros just for the TV series not to be a pirate.

For the rest my mains are all male, alts are all female. Two of the girls look like ex's but it wasn't intentional when I made them. On second thought that's BS. I was with one of them at the time I made her and she's unsubbed atm because I'm not exactly fond of her. The rest I fiddled with for a bit until I got bored with them...kinda like real life.

My daughters started my Eve account made my main, a female character as a birthday present.

i have 2-3 of these accounts/characters.

My old roommate I let 'create' them, and he did them based on some of my favorite movie actresses- he'd find one of their photos (from a movie poster or something) and then try to mimic the pose and clothing and features etc.

One of which i've gotten 3 times now "X your char looks like Y".

Honestly my character design model is the following:

Step 1.) Hit random, three times.
Step 2.) Name Character
Step 3.) Create character

Lets just say some turned out better than others, long and the short of it I don't really pay attention to any avatars though.
