sometimes, closed eyes are apropriate for profile images of one’s toon. example.
my character is a good amarr warlord princess and stands for this photo in contemplative prayer before going about her days work of oppressing minmatar scum.
the engine apparenly re-renders the scene and creates an image for each image size, and there appear to be many:
Chat window size.
Character information\profile screen size.
The enlarged version launched from clicking on the image in the above window.
The logon screen\character selection image.
The ‘Capture portrait’ version which is 1024x1024.
When creating the final image for the chracter in customisation window, if you wish to have eyes closed like i do, you wait for the blink, and take the photo.
This will work for one of the many above images, but not for the others that the game rendered automatically for the other sized images. again refer to my link.
because you have no control on timing for all the other image sizes that gets generated, you dont get the same eyes closed effect.
Please fix. maybe eyes closed\open toggle button in the image capture screen
im sure the blinking has ruined a number of images people have taken unaware that the character had blinked. this may cause frustration, but is fixable. the reverse is not.
the toggle option in the final customisation screen would solve both problems.
OR create a 1024x1024 image at the initial user confirmed image in the creation window, and downscale a copy for all other sizes needed.
yes i know this is an odball request that will go nowhere.
but the support guy asked me to post this here so he can close my support call.
i really want this to be a feature.
i want this more than fun sov mechanic or an end to time dilation.
make me happy CCP
