I am really close to escaping from World of Warcraft again... Hopefully I will get back to work on my fan art. :)

Go to the user control panel (Starbase) and hit edit profile in the options area, then hit edit avatar. Its a little picky about what pictures you can upload so you might have to shrink it down a bit. It can be up to 100 KBs and the dimensions can be up to 120 x 120.

If your looking for an avatar image, just google something you like. I think on the last forum, you could pick a whole bunch of pre-made captains portraits, is that still on this forum? Also, if your like me, you can go into GIMP and make your own avatar {With rather corny results :mrgreen: }

Surprisingly, not yet. We're working on it though.

You're online, that's why. Apparently when we do things here, we do them REALLY BIG.

:) The icon for you being online is the Vindicator at the end of the game fully loaded. The offline icon which is not here yet would be the equipment you have at the beginning of the game.

It's quite a beast that Vindicator... an interesting idea though. I'm not sure I like the current size, but maybe it just needs to grow on me.

I'd kind of like to see it add modules as your postcount goes up. But that would probably be overly fancy. (Although now that I think about it, I know the invisionfree forum system supports custom images for poster ranks.) Besides, how would you decide which modules came in which order? Everyone uses a different playstyle when it comes to the flagship.

EDIT: For some reason I've been trying to sneak unnecessary mid-sentence capitalization into my typing. I'm concerned that I might have started thinking in capitals. And possibly italics.
