Hello, from Andromeda!

With the EA/Origin Early Access now live on Xbox and PC, I figured it's time to create a thread where we can share what our Ryder families look like, or just your main character. I'm curious to see what everyone came up with so far!

If I should add more to the OP, let me know.

Please make sure all screenshots are in a quote box so it doesn't bog down the web page too badly.

I'll start off:

Sara Ryder:




Poor man's Morgan Freeman Alec Ryder:


Scott Ryder is just one of the preset heads but with a goatee and black hair and a few tweaks to his nose and brow so I didn't grab a screenshot. Oops.

Not sure if there should be a limit to photos posted or not, but definitely show us what you have created. Also hoping some of you are going for the ugliest, most monstrous characters possible.

I think this should be obvious, but NO STORY SPOILERS ARE ALLOWED.

And now I'm going back to the game because 10hrs will be over way too quickly.


Edit:

2nd attempt. Decided to start a new save file separately from the trial.

I enjoyed the Inquisition face thread hopefully this lives up to that

Are there face codes this time around?

WHy is it that Alec always looks so much better and more believable than the player characters? This has happened in every single stream I've watched so far (about 5 of them) and also in the pictures above. Makes no sense.

No code, but you can import/export faces to the Mass Effect Archive, apparently it's all done in-game. I'm not sure it's live yet, though.

I suspect he might just be based on the preset you choose for the Ryder sibling you're playing.

Can we customize both Ryder siblings, or just one of them? Would like to know if it's possible to make a good-looking Rydad from two good-looking Ryders. Or will the game just fuck it up somehow? :O (... which would also be hilarious tbh.)

edit: Nvm I apparently can't read! So we can customize both! Nice. :)

You can customize both. If they're different looking, the dad will look more like whichever sibling is the player character.

Does the Papa Ryder face actually change based on the choices you make to Scott/Sara's bone structure? Or is it more like, "You chose the black Sara Ryder preset, so you get the one black Alec Ryder face!"

Thanks! I just had to read it again just to be sure.

Looks like I'll be putting in the effort of making the Ryder siblings super attractive. Rydad better come out looking just as good dammit lol

I've seen 3 different Alec Ryders so far, mine included. I haven't watched too many videos though. Not sure if there's a set # of presets or if it's pretty expansive.

First try. Still figuring out the whole customization options. I wish there were more options for nose types, brows and eyes. I'm happy with my first attempt.

First try I literally couldn't make a young light skinned black guy. Really let down by the CC so far.

Was looking forward to posting in here but after spending time with the limited character creator I ended up preferring the default Ryders. What a colossal disappointment.
