Wonder if we will get avatar graphix as tourney prizes now, would be nice.

Or perhaps unlocking some through in game mysteries.

That's what we always say before releasing new software to customers Rorgash. and there are always bugs and there are always things that do not work as exactly as intended. and if i find something wrong, it is definitely a bug, naming it something else does not change the fact that it is a bug. anyway, i will stop here.

thanks to the devs for this update.

What specifically makes it a large change? It seemed like a lot more time and effort went into the backgrounds (though I'm not an artist, so maybe you guys can do those faster than I think) than any programming required to change your character to male or female. 

None the less, I feel that if you wanted to charge more than 200 prestige for it, you should have done it in a single charge, rather than making two separate charges for it. I say this because the avatar change charge, which not doing a single thing on it's own, allows you to change anything else about your avatar without additional charge, do to it already being charged. This doesn't make any sense. If I'm only changing my gender, why do I need to pay for a gender charge AND an avatar charge if I'm not changing anything with my avatar? 

This also means that anyone who changes their gender gets to also change their clothing, their model, their hair colour and their face/eye free of change, which makes even less sense. Not only am I paying for not doing that, I'm paying less if I DO do that. Because a single gender change is effectively 250 prestige but a gender change AND other avatar changes are still 250 prestige. So while I think the cost if already high, wouldn't it make sense to charge 300 prestige to change gender and change your avatar?

A little constructive critique.

Thank go you made a decent male orc avatar, and the female orc model that has a downward gaze is lovely, but honestly: The original bodies as well as the optional faces need a lot of work imo. Other than that, great update.

Awesome update, but I only see 2 different male dwarf faces. Either it is different for different races, or the difference are so subtle I can't see them.

There are "a few" subtle variants in the eyes for the two main dwarf faces, hard to see.

Folks, Thanks, this is pretty cool. 

Love the artwork so whomever does the art you are talented. Please send me a nice acrylic painting of your work so I can hang it in my den.


By my count there are

6 selections on Hair

9 selections on Face

6 Selections on Cloths

2 selections on Body

16 sections on Environments

Thus,

The combinations are 6 * 9 * 6 * 2 * 16 = 10,368 per race

There are 4 races so the total number of permutations = 41,472


A+ on this. Star

Gender too?

does this included any troops still remaining in abandoned accounts ??
