"how does this damn camera even work, how am I supposed to know that it's on?"

That is the single funniest line on the forums since the original "Dude, your face"

I really liked how it turned out. This was a really good move for Eve.

We can't see embedded images without logging in? Unfortunate.

@gildhur Where is it that you need to log in to see images? I'm not getting that issue.

@Brendan Drain

I'm getting the same thing on the Eve forums. I can't see any of the images at all.

@Scotland Tom GaaaaH is right, anything embedded you won't be able to see. But then there's a forum rule against embedding images in the first place, they should be posted as links. Most of the ones people are talking about though are the avatars on the left hand side of people's posts, and you can click on those to see bigger versions. There are some real crackers in there!

They really aren't that good. A lot of the fantastic avatars are such due to camera angles and composition rather than any decent design. A common problem is with Freddie there: smiles are hard as hell to make look good. The eyes are also tricky, for some reason you can't swivel them to look at the camera depending on the angle of the head.

Also, all the avs look generic, because they removed a lot of the science fictiony stuff from the old avatars. There are no facial tattoos or implants, and the clothing so far is variations of robes or jackets. People have commented also about the inability to make black characters outside of minmatar brutor tribe, as well as other issues.

I liked the old creator a lot, it felt science fiction like and was more versatile in terms of head positioning.

@GaaaaaH yeah, you can move them, just not to the corners of the eyes depending on the head position.

Omg, this thread had me cracking up! Im LOVING all the new pictures!

It reallllly makes me mad I already made mine for EVE yesterday and didnt do something more creative.

I also fell prey to the "I didnt know I couldnt switch pictures of the 4 I took" crowed and hope to god CCP makes us able to change our poses whenever we feel like it.

@Beltyra It is definitely planned to let us re-take pictures whenever we like, once CCP adds more customisation features. It'll definitely be that way once Incarna hits. CCP's also going to let us re-edit our characters again once soon because of all the confusion with the editor. That's aimed to be this weekend.

@slash beast http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&bid=846

It will most likely be after the Incursion 1.1.1 patch they are doing tomorrow (or later today depending on where you are) but the Dev Blog says before the weekend (tm)

For anyone finding slow download speeds, Chribba starts a torrent file for patches that can be faster than the official download.
