So is there no "plastic surgeon" in ME:A? I'm really considering restarting my PS4 playthrough to change my character.

I thought they had said more customization options were coming. If they are, they'll probably add a "plastic surgery station" to your personal quarters or something.

Anyway, finally bought the game proper thanks to GMG, and after like 4 failed attempts at coming up with a FemRyder that didn't have stupid eyes, a permanent frown, or ridiculously bad mouth animations, I found something I like...

Erin Ryder
Preset 9


And here's My Bro, still sleepin'
Preset 6


And here's our "Father", though it's clear we were adopted,
or our mother was sleeping around....

I would assume so but I'm kind of at the point where my character is ruining the game for me(it's all in my mind but still). I'm not very far though. I only recently left EOS.

My Sara Ryder. I tried Asian and default Sara but none of them clicked with me.

Not too shabby, I guess. Well, after 12 hours in she's already attached to me.

Damn! She looks absolutely amazing! Very well done. You don't happen to have the slider presets for this one?

So I went back and made a few tweaks regarding small facial quirks that were bothering me in cutscenes (mostly cheek/cheekbone stuff that you cannot see while in the CC) and this is my final FemRyder. Very happy with it. Looks good almost all the time, unless the game decides to go full derp. Her mouth is curved down in some scenes, but it's better than Sara's default ever-smile.

Tesla Ryder

Created her on XB1 using the last female head - I think she turned out really well. Really digging this game so far. I kept my twin the default option.

My male Ryder - Tyrone

And my alt- Sarah Ryder from my laptop game.

But to be honest there's not a lot you can do in the CC. Hope to see it expanded soon.
Also I'm pretty sure the make-up is bugged in the game, particularly the eyeliner and eyeshadow. Maybe lipstick too.

Really unfortunate that you can immediately tell which preset an individual face used if you get familiar with all the presets.

Yeah, that site is anything but helpful for people to choose which Ryder is perfect for them.

Browsing through forums or reddits is much better as there are pics who can actually differentiate them.

I redid my Scott from the trial. He looks very similar to the previous version but I made sure not to overdo his cheekbones so much this time around and I think he looks quite a bit better.

Is that an ingame feature?

Yup. I haven't tried it out yet but I think you need to specify which Ryder you want to import on the website beforehand and then, in the game's character creator, there's a button that lets you import that character.

Some of these look WAY better than I was expecting, several of the ones on this very page are really great! esp Evolved1 and Laughing Banana's, wow.


I used one of the creations in here and it does look great! Still pulls goofy faces occasionally but I really like it.



I like this one as well!, is it easy to share people's presets?

Think I'm going to try and redo my character while still in the early game. This did not turn out how I wanted it. I don't think it's horrible but it's certainly not a looker. Not sure if it's just the animation issue or just the original models. Clear more work went into the female models so it's easier to get something decent. My characters sister looks exponentially better. How is this? Redo or keep?

I've been working on trying to get a good looking black bro Ryder. I'm not quite finished with it yet. Preset 7 doesn't have a great jawline so maybe I'll try something with preset 8. But if you want to use this one I can post an Archive link.

Looks pretty good. Sure if you could post the link I'd like to give the design a try. Thanks.

Here's my Scott Ryder. Excuse the phone shot, apparently Origin doesn't have screenshot functionality for some mad reason and Ansel doesn't work in cutscenes:



Really liking him as a character and surprisingly the male voice works decent enough for a young black dude.

Playing as Scott, Sara looks exactly like her mother.

Spoilers in character creation threads now ? Awesome.

I'm thinking of starting over with default Scott if BioWare doesn't add more beard options, I hate the ones in the CC compared to the default model.

My Ryder looks similar to yours, tattoo on the left side though, sister has it on the right:

The Mass Effect Archives want me to log in with my EA account but I have no idea what the password is anymore. For some goddamn stupid reason EA isn't sending an email to me, even though I've requested a password reset a million times now. No email in my inbox or spam box. Nothing. What can I do?

So I made a new account and I can only choose "use this appearance" wtf, I can't see the settings for a character?

It seems there are a limited number of Alec Ryder faces that never change regardless of the changes to your Sara or Scott Ryder. Is this why the CC is so limited? If it were more expansive and detailed you'd end up with offspring that look absolutely nothing like Dad Ryder. Which still kinda' happens I guess. Makes me wonder if they'll actually change it.

I had to restart after 12 hours or so. The female character's posture is weird, and I made some odd choices with the creator...

I think this time I did ok. Chose Male simply because he doesn't look like he's been hunched over a vid screen his entire life...

I like how he turned out, there's a little Native American in him.

Sis isn't exactly a twin, but I couldn't get any other preset looking right.

Dad looks like everyone else's dad.
