This is another re-take on the Armatar discussion because we need to clarify a few points.

First, this topic is to discuss how the AG3 beta manages armatars.

Secondly, if you just want to ask for new armatars, discuss it with Dan.

Third, we are still discussing whether we want to allow custom armatars in the future, because of copyright and licensing issues that will come up from that, so that idea is ON HOLD.

If messages in here aren't about the interface we've built, how we could improve it, etc., then I'll probably trim the message.

Questions about how to unlock armatars, etc., are totally welcome and I'll provide answers as I have them. As of the time I write this, the understanding I have is that all AG2 armatars will be unlocked on AG3 by default, and we will unlock seasonal armatars through some process eventually.

We are also going to start asking game developers for one or more armatars related to their game, which users can select, but I don't think they'll be locked in any way. We've talked about unlocking special armatars based on achievements, but since achievements aren't finished yet, we can't go into much detail on that.

How about the ablity to get game icons as armatars?


I think that idea is already implemented.

aside from that there's not much content for decisions


Can you describe this a bit more? Not entirely sure what you mean here.

Yes, it is. We're requiring gamedevs to upload several images now when they submit a game. Eventually we'll have a way for them to send us several armatars specific to their game.

And before someone else asks the question again, no, we are not unlocking these game armatars based on Achievements.

ummm, is there gonna be more armatars added to the armatar section of the control panel? or is it the same as it is now....

anyway, i think that there should be armatars added to your armatar selection based on how many AP you earn or if there is a specific acheivement that you have made... so instead of having just a couple of armatars available and people having the same armatar, it is unique to that user

You apparently ignored what cormyn said here:

now that is going to be brilliant! a great way to personalize your account based on the games that you like.

another issue with that, is that there is more than likely going to be copyright on those images, which meens that it would be breaking that copyright to use it as an image.

i think that achievement linked armatars is a very good idea bcause the players will get gifted when they are very good in a game and they will play the game longer as well to get tha achievement and playing a game longer means better comments !

We've already said this isn't going to be built for phase one.

NO to Custom Amatars. But maybe, we could have amatars that are characters from Armor Games Games?

cormyn said that no custom armatars are allowed on AG3. Therefore, what you said was irrelevant since cormyn has already agreed with you that there will be no custom armatars.
