My proposal is simple:

Add sliders for all of the sculpting options. Such as the nose length and all the others.

In addition to the current system. It's can be hidden by default and accessed via "advanced" button.

Let's be honest, the avatars are great, but the customization options are quite average, so it'll not be a lot of sliders.

And even if there will be more options, it's not a problem.

The current, "easy" system it's cool because you can quickly customize your avatar without spending half of an hour messing with the sliders.

But it's will be really great to have that traditional "advanced" option, where you can carefuly ajust every thing in your avatar. In this case that "easy" system iis very uncomfortable.

...like there is a dev to do something with the avatars...

in 2007 i've thought it's a sci-fi simulator, not an "e-sports" game. I'm not a teenager, how would i like it much?

I thought this topic was going to be about Sliders but it wasn't and nothing you can propose can come close to how awesome an Eve Online / Sliders cross over would be.

Although it's very sad that ppl not interested in the avatar system. Looks like it's so boring that there's even no negative posts.

But i love this thing, even in this state, and still hope that we'll see it evolving.
Although for now i enjoy more in the other game's character editor. Yep, that's my game. Someone carebearing, someone PvPing, someone do mining... I'm doing that :)

I'm pretty sure the whole point of it is that it doesn't use sliders, and that they intended for it to be slider-less. You're not going to get them to add them back in.

But there is a hidden sliders.

I will understand if it'll be possible to pick any area of the avatar and change it any way i like. But they're only a few of those areas. With not so many options as it's should be for slider-less.

I think lots of people are interested in the avatar system (me for example), but they want things like the old Gallente transparent clothing and headgear, more varieties for skin color (some of the colors we had with the first gen CC are gone with the new skins). Remember the old Amarr robes with the massive high collars... Or blue and green hair, or even a few more hairstyles that actually look good.

Rather than a slider it might be nice to mouse over a morph target, hold down shift, and use the mouse wheel to move it by tiny increments.

Honestly, i preferthe current method of actually messing witht he geometry, ive seen some messed up faces you could NEVER get with just basic slider options, and it would eb a shame to see that go.

Also, as far as visual interaction goes in the creation process, alot of my friends have mentioend to me they prefer it over sliders because it feels like they are actually MAKING the character, as opposed to choosing from various ones already amde that sliders (no matter how variable) tend to evoke.

Meh, I prefer the "sculpting" approach. I just wish there was that level of customizability beyond the physical form of the character.

I also wish that the clothing and hair designers had hooked up with the people who wrote the lore, too, instead of designing Generic Space/1980s Rave Outfits(TM), but maybe that's asking too much.
