I believe that CCP needs to introduce far more ~fabulous~ items. What's the point of being Gallente if you can only dress like a soldier?
Also, Cat Ears. Give me them. Now.
I guess fabulous is in the eye of the beholder, good sir. In genera though, I agree.
I have a dear friend, for instance, who'd love to see more yellow.
Cat ears? There's no double you'd look adorable to this lil Sebbie's blue eyes, Mr Jin'taan, but we have to keep our suggestions realistic and fitting to the genre and dark atmosphere that is life in New Eden. It's always very hard for us avatar enthusiasts to get a serious audience, even more so when those among us ask for things that don't fit where we are in the galaxy.
My friends and I have always felt there's innumerable small (small being a relative term, granted, good sir) changes and updates that would make an enormous difference. Small changes such as:Showing physically simulated hair in final portraits
. A suggestion of many years old that never got an kind answer nor explanation, let alone any fixes or development. Just look at all the puffy hair, wind-swepth locks and twisted ponytails flying around, Mr Jin'taan. It's a little embarrassing, but just imagine how character beauty would level up by 100 with that simple, widely-louded and supported change to the portrait system. Or the equality-focused Unlocking of all racial clothing
. This suggestion is even older still, lovely sir. And not only was this one well supported by the public but even CCP thought it was a good idea. Yet it's still the same of segregation, and it's a little weird that only Matari or Gallente girls can wear braids, for instance, or certain styles of pants. Such a little change would open up such a big world of creative options for the new capsuleers out there, not to mention the old.
Some CSMs in the past, like the wonderful Mr Corbex, listened to us with interest and respect when we raised the things that were important to us. Even though anything avatar-related was vastly removed from his CSM platform, which was wormholes. Thanks to his wonderful efforts he managed to arrange and host the first meeting with the Devs who deal with this stuff, on TS where a number of enthusiasts gathered to ask questions and table suggestions in the first ever Avatar-related round-table a couple of years ago. We've had nothing like that since, sadly.
So I guess it's your opinion on matters like these that Ms Shelby was asking about. From mild tweaks like portraits and clothing, and medium level changes like the introduction of all new items, right up to your thoughts on the wildest, most taboo end of the avatar-topic, avatar-based gameplay and whether or not you see some kind of future for it in New Eden.
