avatars will still be unlockables, aka do things to earn the avatars, the avatars need to be replaced as each avatar takes up alot of ram. so we can't improve them, and there all different shape and size which has there own complications.in the future the plan is to have mine craft like cuboid's. as they are efficient.also we can then make the armer actually appear on the avatars and not just as an invisible cloak.hoping to have joins in the arms and knees so move well and to improve combat.bone animation is coming but its a lot of work.Craig is giving us a lot in the next update and future ones to distract us while he dose some serious work. Maby in the future we could possible have our avatars in the game if they meet the requirements but there is a lot to do before that, just keep your avatars as ideas or make them for fun but don't expect anything soon. all the avatars will change a lot in the future.Thats the plan anyway to my knowledge. welcome to fill in the blanks.
I wanna say it'll be like this:We would have three primary sizes:Tall MediumSmall.Each one of those would have the current avatars to be chose from. I.E would be optional if you chose to equip the tall model. Sage if you chose the small model.
From what I understood was avatars would be made of cuboids of different sizes is what martin explained. So having different races is a good possiblity. What I am hoping for is an online editor simalar to some of the MC ones where you get 3D models and you can texture them. Then they could be saved to an online Library. This way we the community could make hundreds of outfits and take some of the effort of the devlopers. I would be willing to do it myself making generic outfits for all the races we have now and some new ones. This way we can have villages with all kinds of NPC filling them instead of having 1 King for one race we could have 10 kings for every race. Diversity will make this game great.
