Avatar Customization:
The ability to customize your player avatar has now been added to the game. Visit your player profile and choose "edit avatar" to get started. For each race and gender there are 2 body types, 6 clothing color options for each body, 2 distinct heads with several face configurations (mostly eye color changes) and at least 6 different hair colors for each as well as some unique options like helms, headbands, etc. In addition, there are 15 unique pieces of environmental background art that you can place behind your character avatar. 

I'll let our more math-minded players help me figure out how many unique configurations that makes. :D

Avatar customization changes cost a flat prestige fee per edit session that you will be asked to confirm to save. You can edit your avatar as many times as you'd like. Background artwork can be purchased individually and once purchased, unlocked for permanent future use. So you can "collect" background artwork and switch it in and out at any time for no additional fee to re-use the artwork you've already purchased. Environmental artwork, gotta catch 'em all! Desert wasteland, I choose you!

*ahem*

You can also choose to purchase a character gender change at the time of customization for an additional fee. 

Custom avatars will update on your forum signature banners as well. 



We hope you enjoy the avatar options as much as I've enjoyed helping bring them to you. A great team of artists have worked to bring our diverse set of characters to life. 


Other Changes:
The siege code has been over-hauled to remove any glitches. An outstanding bug relating to defense against storm and raze attempts has been fixed. Sieges should now work exactly as intended.

This seems pretty high up there on the awesome-meter.  I sort of wish there was an out-of-game viewer so I could check out the new options for other races too tho.

I know this is a cosmetic feature that doesn't impact game-play but I really love the new avatars. Thanks Devs for working so hard on this stuff. It was worth the prestige :-D

Also, it might be nice to be able to view a larger version of the backgrounds without the avatar in front of them.  I have a hard time making trivial decisions, and the current setup makes it difficult to fully appreciate the attention to detail you put into them.

Why are we double charged for a gender change? We pay 200 for the gender and then an additional 50 for the avatar change? It seems unreasonable to have to pay for two separate things when I'm only changing one thing. Especially when you take into account that all other changes to your avatar are singular charges.
