You don't need two topics on the same issue tbh.

Personally, I like the concept, and I think it's been done fairly well, but some of them do like they are on drugs, and they need to work on the ethnicities of players in my opinion.

For example, most of the Portuguese newgens are milk-bottle white, rather than having any sort of tanned/Mediterranean complexion. Quite a few of Scotland's players are black on my game. And Brazil's squad are mostly white as well.

Oh, and they could do with a few more different haircuts in the game as well!

If they could improve on that, I'd be quite happy. It's only a cosmetic feature though, so it's not the end of the world.

I just found a regen called Mohammed Ali - his weakness is strength

It's just a bit of fun. That is too funny... Ali with a weakness in strength.

I think they're great, they really give some more personality to the newgens fun to watch them age. But i do have a problem in that too many seem to have this receding curly hair (even 15 year olds.)

Some of them i wouldn't want to meet down a dark alley, but there are footballers in the world like that now.

Look at how ugly Ronaldinho is.

I don't see how they can be a bad thing. It's a nice addition but it could be improved with a bit more variety.

You know the hair they use is actually from real photos of players. I noticed it yesterday when i was facegening myself into the game and going through all the hair.

Guess the reference.

Anyone notice that there are no regens with beards or mustaches, or at least I haven't seen any up this point.

LOL, yeah those afros are ridiculous and there's only one kind in the game.

i think they should make real players into facegen pictures to, you can get them spot on as i hae done mine to use n the game. that way the players could show ageing too.

I've tried this too and it's amazing how accurate the generated faces are of real players.

i know, you could say of course that a photo is more accurate but i think having a uiversal look of the players woulds be better, instead of some phots some facegen, and of course they can age, rather than people still looking 16 years old when they are 37

The aging would be hard to simulate for real players though unlike regens.

not really, i only had a free demo version and that allowed me to age my picture and it stil looked ok. so im guessing si have a lot better facegen software than me so woulnt be tht hard.

An amusement that adds nothing to the game IMO

i dunno i like it, i turn it off sometimes to speed up the game but the players having faces adds a little more depth, even if some of them are very similar, i have a facgen one, as i am only 18 i aged myslef and changed my hair and stuff to make me look the 36 years old i am in the game http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

they need facial hair! and players with hairbands too!

I love facegen. Love it. For those of us with long-term games it's fantastic.

Hopefully they'll add facial hair and a wide selection of hairstyles in 09.

The lop sided afro, the ginger/blond emo-fringe and the (c)Radiohead Hitler Hairdo are all far too prevalent.

I have a strange problem with generated faces. They change from day to day, I guess they are different for every players every time I load the game... Is it a sign of something bad, like problems with the computer's memory and an upcoming crash? :)

No, their expressions change from happy to sad. Their haircuts also change.

I personally am not a big fan of the newgen face thing at the moment, as many people have said, it just isn't accurate and a lot of the players look the same, if it was properly done, then I would probably find some enjoyment from it, but to me, at the end of the day, it is superflous to the game anyways
