Too much of a good thing can be a good thing, but it can also be too much. The Ship of Heroes character creator will, evidently, have a whole lot of sliders for players to futz about with, but perhaps you’re the type who gets drowned by too many options and you find yourself lost in the labyrinth of character creation choices. There’s help for those folks, however, and that comes with a randomize button.
Another update on the Character Creator Tool beta posted to the Ship of Heroes forums explains that the option for a randomized choice was the better decision instead of taking away character creation features.
“We’re giving players so many choices, so many options, that no other MMO character creator we’re aware of can match us. But this also means that an individual player could literally spend weeks trying out options. So we face a dilemma — make it simpler by reducing player choice, or do something else. We opted for something else.”
This option to let the CCT generate choices for you will be on offer during several phases of the creation process, specifically when you choose a character model and at the point of costume creation. From there, players can fine-tune the randomized avatar to make it truly their own.
Once more, however, this update does not provide the big news of a calendar date for the CCT beta. Clearly, though, the devs are working on it. In the meantime, the devs sent us another round of images from inside the hidden Club Beta, which will be discoverable once the beta goes live. You can dazzle your eyeballs with all that neon below.
