Bioware needs to put up the website to download other faces. Man I need your custom Ryder in my game

Question as I'm perusing this thread. Are there longer hair options for bro Ryder? Was hoping to have him rock some locks.

This is pretty good advice. I'd be careful with pure black, depending on the actual iris color you want (it makes my 'medium/light' blue look a bit odd, for example), but at the very least go with a darker shade.

In other words, been having some pretty good luck (still tweaking minor things, so no pics yet) with this template for Sara from Reddit:

Very nice. I saw another one made with preset 5 on reddit that looks really good.



She reminds me of someone, maybe a bit of Aubrey Plaza in there?

Since I got really positive feedback here for Asian bro Ryder Jin Young, I'll try to re-create him for you guys. Thanks for the compliments.

The thing is once you get in ballpark, you can kinda adjust to your liking. Hopefully isn't hard to get back to his general vibe :D

OK guys that liked Asian bro Ryder, just tried recreating him. I think I got pretty close, but you may want to mess around with some settings here and there. Maybe you'd like more eye width, height, or depth, less jaw and cheekbone craziness (comparing the two now I might back off a bit on those two things on the re-creation), extend chin a bit etc...I don't think it's a perfect re-creation, but I hope some of you can find it usable.




Here are the sliders. Have fun with the eye color, tattoos, scars and all that :D

Preset 4

Skin tone - 0.05

Brow Height - 6, Brow Depth - 12

Cheek Height - 18, Cheek Width - 7, Cheekbone Width - 18

Chin Height - 18, Chin Depth - 19, Chin Width - 15, Jaw Width - 19

Eye Height - 4, Eye Depth - 10, Eye Width - 15

Lip thickness - 9, Mouth Height - 16, Mouth Depth - 10, Mouth Width - 15

Nose Height - 3, Nose Depth - 7, Nose Width - 14, Nose Size - 8

Hairstyle - 7, black

Edit: Sorry for double post.

Looking great there next to Cora. Awesome job. I like the calm brown eyes. Deep brown eyes can help make videogame characters look so much more real as tempting as the exotic looking blue and green eyes often are.

Looks pretty good! I am torn between a blond caucasion female and a black haired asian female. Still looking for a good Scott though. (Although the asian one above seems pretty good).

There has been a tweet or two by Mike Gamble (I think?) that says they're looking at it currently. Sounded like it was a definite possibility. Seems it might just introduce more facial animation bugs though, which means it could be a while. But what do I know...just kinda thinking out loud.

I hope we get more options and soon.

He animates pretty decently and matches the VA nicely. I'm going to be sticking with the original one I made of him. For a while now I've usually chosen female protagonists 99% of the time in Bioware games(probably since DA2), but there's something about the story/setting of MEA that makes me want to try Bro-Ryder for my first full playthrough. Probably also that I want to romance Cora

After 3 restarts I've finally designed a Ryder I love.

Most tweaks are very subtle but I think they make a massive difference once you get in game.

I can post the numbers if anyone wants them.

And +1 for anyone who recognises the name.

That looks great. Dialing in an Asian female or male seems to work well.

Both of these are pretty good. My girl will probably look similar when I get this game.

But there's really only 2 heads per that work as a good base. The CC is downright sad.

I think there are around 5 good female presets to work with. I would agree that there's only a couple for males.
