Looks a lot more awesome than the current character creator.

Holy S#%&t! is that the beta client?!?

Yes its the beta client (the current character creator looks nothing like this). It seems they have beta basically ready (from a graphical point of view) they are just waiting for server based errors to be subsided before they move on to it. I'm happy with the character creation choices. A lot more to do then FFXI but at the same time more restricted then several MMORPGs where you are left to fiddle with sliders to try and perfect a polygon model design. Sure its more freedom but it also creates hassles during the actual process where I never feel satisfied with my characters design >.>. Clear/cut design choices make it that much easier to decide on a final design (and tends to make modeling easier for SE too).

As for the upgrades to the character creation UI... well quite frankly I think its fantastic. Never seen such a slick UI for character creation in any game much less an MMORPG.

After the girl selects "Keeper of the Moon" she selects between "4 Types". What are those types? Maybe different "types" have different shaped bodies ( different bust sizes...)

Multilingual Video. Clever PR is clever.
And just when we were saying they could do with a little more PR action.

Is this still a work in progress?
Perhaps only for the Beta Client?

Coming from an MMO made in the last 5 years or so, I'm actually really underwhelmed.
It's like XI all over again, it doesn't even hold a candle to what's current, much less have the capability to age well.

It doesn't have to be stretch armstrong territory, but they can still throw in some limited palette colorpickers and sliders that maintains their aesthetic while exponentially increasing the options.

It's excellent UI design in any event.
Very clean.

While it might not be the best, even if it stopped here (hoping more options will be available come beta -> real deal), I feel so much better compared to all the choices I have versus XI so far.

Two colors in hair, and some of the characteristics, I found especially neat.

That's not to say I'm not hoping they'll add more options. Yes, the options we have are very much lesser than a lot of other (older even) games. But from what we're used to in XI, it's a pretty good change.

Whenever games have a crazy amount of sliders for the teeniest little things (like Aion and Age of Conan) I personally never use them. I could see how some people may want the option but usually by that point I'm bored with the creation. While I think there could be a few more choices for some of those things (like more hair styles and voices) I think the things that they now allow you to customize do really help to make the character really yours. I like it so far.

From the recent MMO's I've tried, only Aion had better customization options... not saying I've tried all of them though, but I still think this is acceptable for a feature like this. Gameplay is what they should be focusing on.

For people who want a rough list of the steps of character creation (I was bored):

1. Race
2. Clan
3. Body Type?(They described it as a "base")
4. Size, Voice, Skin Tone, Hair (Hairstyle/Hair Color/Highlights), Face (Face/Eyebrows/Eye Shape/Iris Size/Eye Color/Nose/Mouth/Features [like chin size]), Characteristics (like scars, tattoos, band-aids, beauty marks etc.)
5. Starting Class
6. Nameday and Guardian
7. Name and Surname
8. I noticed that after the name and surname was chosen, it skipped this step and went to Starting City.
9. Starting City
10. This tenth step had a box asking to confirm the creation of the character and there was a box to the left of the box that had some yellow text in it. That's when the camera got shaky so I couldn't really read it.

This character creation looks so much better than the alpha. I love how you can choose the darker cat-like nose Mithra had. But are they really going to have only eight different hairstyles again? That would suck!

And it's easier to watch on mute, that guy's commentary is creepy.

I would never want Aion's system for customization in FFXIV. Sure, they gave you the ability to change more features then other MMOs but look at what the playerbase did with that freedom.

In Aion, its nothing to see rediculous midgets, players with big heads or other out of propotion avatars running around the world. This fact alone (though there are tons of other problems when I played) made me log off and never play again.

Even if more MMOs are fantasy themed and want the player to suspend a bit of realism, I still want a game that doesn't make me feel like I joined a "freak show"

I think there is a fine balance that needs to be had. Just as one other user pointed out with the Aion system being abused, this could happen with any system....even XIV (if they don't limit the # and placement of certain features). From what I've seen so far this is the perfect blend of customization and semi-realism.

The vid is on SE's official channel, so maybe that's why it's been up and down. I don't see why SE would complain, but still it does seem like it's redundant and not anything particularly unique.

The only thing I'd like to see is more hair options.

Facial customisation is fine but you don't really look at people that closely. All you really see is body type, size, hair, and armor/tattoos.

Aion went way over the top, it really didn't make that much difference.

XIV seems to be providing the pretty, but on a more sensible level.

Also, that guy is f*cking WEIRD.
