For freaking sure, like just copy and paste the photo from that.


Like is this what it feels to be a named in the fest zone? To be stripped of everything?!

There's a chance that Krin is still working on this I guess?

But if it's the final thing... Yes please, let us toggle between the headshot and the fullbody.
I really liked seeing my Avatar in the upper right in full since you otherwise only see it while in the Zone/LG/Exploring or on your own Profile Page, which you're not looking at alot I guess?
(And in the Forums ofc, nearly forgot lmao)

I'm also not the biggest fan of the blue-hue, totally clashes with the rest of my avatar :'D

Maybe we'll get it as another option to costumize? We'll see

Agreed and support. The face is only like a tenth of the outfit/look, and it's the least interesting part imo. Plus, a light blue gradient is only going to look nice with a tiny % of avis.

I personally like the simple background on the profile pics. The cut off clutter of all the extra stuff never looked quite right to me. But I do not like blue all that much; a red one would be cool. What if we could choose between a list of different colours? Just a thought...

even transparent would be better, honestly. the headshots are spice-less and sad Dx

That was the reasoning for the "cleaned up" version. When testing it on the Hatchery, having Wings, Aspect items, Held items, etc... just cluttered everything. It's too small of a box to tell what the vast majority of those items are anyway and it just makes everything super messy and cluttered. I felt that that removing those items in place of a nice clean headshot looked a lot more appealing. I feel that these new ones are a lot more personable as you can cleanly see a player's avatar's face. And there is still plenty of details that each player looks unique (unless they're just running the defaults of course lol).

That said, this is pretty much a brand new thing that I am implementing. I fully plan on letting players customize their headshot down the road. This would include choosing from different backgrounds, in the least. Could also maybe add in some borders and such as well as customization options.

I hate seeing the blue screen head shot avi so much. Now the only place I will ever see my avatar background is my profile page or any posts that I make on the forum. I can understand it a little bit but is discourages me a lot fron collecting avatar Items when I just see a head shot. It feels a lot less personable to me, I don't see my clothes when perusing the forums. It just feels halfway pointless to get new/fun avatar items when I don't see it 50% of the time. Letting us toggle it would be wonderful but I can understand if that is really just not feasible in game. But it just, makes me sad to not see my avatar items on 50% of the time.
