New Character Portraits

New Character Portraits - EVE Online -

A new EVE Online developer blog has cropped up on the official site. The post details the enhancements coming to character portraits as the Incursion expansion goes live. Once the character portrait generator is released, players will have the opportunity to recreate their avatar. Check out the differences!

Going this route also allows us to render all the portraits in high resolution using extremely high quality textures, something that normal desktop computers do not handle well. As we expect very high number of characters to be created in the initial days after launch, we might decide to use lower quality textures for the portraits while getting over the initial tsunami of characters, but then redo them in higher quality in the days thereafter. This also means that when creating a new character on a low end machine it will appear to others as rendered with high quality textures, and might therefore look a bit different than when initially created.
