Back to the topic. I love the idea of having android operators in some places. Evarchart's draft android would make a nice law enforcement android, IMO. Awesome work.
Re blinking animations, maybe but wouldn't it look a bit poor if that's all it can move?
Since I saw Pioneer from the first time, I have been thinking that it would be awesome to have 3D models of heads, changing SecondLife-style parameters at random. They could then be animated in many ways, and the animations reused for all faces, and could introduce random variations or combinations of them. But I can't volunteer to bell that cat which is why I haven't mentioned it before. But the viewer code is GPL, hmmm...
On the profile editor:
I would love to have that. A simple collection of sliders that go through each variation of each element would probably be a simple and good enough starting point. I hate when after so many clicks, I manage to get a face for myself that doesn't look so ugly, and then an incompatible save file format change renders the save file with that face invalid. But again, I'm just dreaming, not offering myself.Evarchart wrote:I was also wondering about a profile picture editor, so we can choose race/head shapes/features and augmentations etc? Would that be a possibility?
Anyway, the main reason for posting was this:
If that helps inspiring you, this post might further help. It's from the Second Life community forums. Unfortunately the images are now gone but at least I managed to grab a copy before that happened (not of the PSD mentioned though).Evarchart wrote:I just found this, those faces look familiar :D

A final note:
I was 17 by the time Elite came to the Spectrum, so go figure. Turns out I'm older than you ;)Evarchart wrote:I hope you guys are knuckling-down on your homework to get good grades! ;)
I am no doubt a lot older than you are (I am nearly 40)
