Need This Now: Stored Character Portraits

I really like my character's portrait. So much so, in fact, that though I've considered buying some clothes with aurum (and on the market), I held off. Why? Because if I change my character portrait, I will never be able to get this one back. Ever. I've found something I like.

So, CCP, please allow us to store character portraits for use in the future, a bank of saved portraits if you will. The character creator can already do it short-term while you're in it, I'm sure we can make this happen. You'll have at least one more person who would buy that dank character swag.

Two, actually. My wife is eager to do this too.

Disregard, I misinterpreted what the thread was about.

Yeah, it's pretty much impossible to match a portrait exactly. It would be nice to be able to save 3 or so and be able to freely swap between them.

As far as I've always known,
If you change anything about your character, and then go into the portrait window, it will go to the same pose & background that made your last portrait.

Go, try it. It won't change your portrait unless you confirm the change. You can simply cancel out of the process if it doesn't look right.

Yep, I just changed mine after a couple years. btw navy sterling shirt on sale at jita 4-4 now Big smile
Had the same pose as always, already set, well until I fixed it a little, changed the smirk to the other side etc. A little better peering of the eye. Lighter hair color. Resculpt of course. Even after the resculpt is was the same signature pose there.
Now, having such a sharp suit fresh off of the exchange, and it looks sharp! why would I ever care to instantly flash back to some old clothes, or even standard issue newbie type clothing?? I see no point... This one matches my stealth bomber skin anyway, I cant imagine wanting to go back to newbie threads. Seems like wasted coding time.

This was suggested back in the day when they actually had people working on Avatar gameplay, so I suppose this will fall on deaf ears, particularly because this is also the wrong forum.

However, I agree with you 100%, and you have my signature, my axe, and effeminate elven friend.

I rarely look at other avatars ingame, so I consider the whole character creation system more a forum feature.
+1 to anything that buffs forum pvp and thus adds more endgame content.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

I actually like that the angle changes every time slightly, that's how I got this one.

Yeah I agree but itd be more useful for it to be stored client side rather than server side. But would be interesting feature for sure.

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

Had to end sometime.

No thanks. This isn't cowboys in space.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I don't recognize you as easily. Now that there's a thread topic about it I finally get to say it. It's like that video of the little girl getting freaked out over her dad's clean shaven beard.

Been saying the same thing for a long time. Two or three 'save slots' for portraits you can switch between would be rather damn awesome. I'd even happily pay aurum for slots.

I am confused. Have the slots in the customizer stopped storing the current portrait?

no - but they've never saved old portraits
