You guys are getting so used to air-brushed perfection that you're starting to think that's the norm. Reality check, people.

In reality african american and asians comes with all kind of features. Have you tried making one of either in TSW? the nose, eyes, lips etc are such stereotypes that i am surprised anyone would even have an audactiy to type 'TSW is going for reality'.

You're mixing up going for realism with lack of options. I guess everyone can agree there should be a lot more choices for pretty much every feature of your character you can alter, including ones not usually found in Caucasians.

 

That's something entirely different than what the guy you quoted was talking about though and he is spot on. 

how is he spot on? there are TONS of extremely beautiful average joes walking around the world that are not air brushed movie stars.. so why if they are trying to make a game "realistic" can I not make a toon that to me looks anything better than below average in the beauty spectrum...

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

i guess we could kill it, cut out it's eye, and drink the eye juice inside...that would make us beautiful people? :)

eww! I don't think you drink it. I'd be more inclined to rub the eyeball juice on the skin for that youthful glow. Kind of a Beholder Balm.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets the hose again?  That's actually a cool advertisement, Wizards should come out with some Beholder Balm for the ladies, my wife would buy some lol.

Is that in-game, or from a TSW cinematic?

TSW's problem isn't that all of its female models are ugly. The problem is that the majority of them is. If you want a female character who doesn't look ugly and weird, you'll have to choose between only a few faces. The same can be said about male characters, but to a lesser degree. Faces are also badly animated, which is why they often look bad during cutscenes.

The "to me" part seems to be the problem here.
