New Genesis expands upon PSO2's character creation by giving players even more customization than before. Today we'll take a look at the new features implemented in NGS.
You can select either the NGS or older PSO2 face models for your character.
New Genesis allows even further eye customization by implementing sliders that change the outer corner of the eyes and the height of the eyelids. With this you can create Phaleg's signature closed eyes appearance without having to rely on getting it through AC Scratch.
The left and right eyelid sliders can be changed separately so that you can acquire a permanent winking expression. In addition, you have the option of adjusting the pupils up and down, recreating that popular… uh… expression.
Eyebrows and Eyelashes
You can now change your eyebrows to any color and adjust the distance between them.
Eyelashes have finally gained color customization. Hopefully this means Sega no longer has to spam the AC Scratch with different color variations.
New Genesis will introduce new hairstyles, and some of them will allow you to change the length of the bangs.
A new slider was introduced that lets you change the distance between the nose and the mouth. Inside the mouth, you can select the teeth and tongue style, and position the tongue to have it sticking out. The corners of the lips have their own sliders which can be adjusted individually or simultaneously.
With NGS, you can change the size of your pupils and adjust their sight line.
Ears and Horns
You are now able to choose the style of your ears and horns regardless of race and gender. Ear selection ranges from Humans, Newmans, and Cast . You can even select the single or double horns Dewmans are known for.
With such freedom, you could create a Caseal with Newman ears and Dewman horns.
Adjusting the angle of the neck will allow your character to look downwards or upwards.
A new slider will let you adjust the strength of the makeup pattern.
The shoulder volume slider can morph between big beefy shoulders to slim skinny arms. Shoulder height can also be adjusted to give your character a shrugging appearance. Forearm volume adjustments can be made if you want those bulging Popeye muscles. Additionally, you can edit the thickness and overall shape of your hands.
New sliders were added to adjust the size of the thighs, calves, and feet.
Even men can edit the size of their breasts.
PSO2: New Genesis will do away with the gender concept of having a "male" or "female" character. Instead, your character can select a body type that could have a masculine or feminine physique. There's Human Type 1, Human Type 2, Cast Type 1, and Cast Type 2.
For example, here is a Cast Type 2 body type using a human face.
PSO2: NGS has [Basewear / Setwear], [Outerwear], and [Innerwear]. Each outfit option has color adjustment settings.
The accessory limit is now cost based, where you can put up to 18 "points" of accessories. Accessories typically cost between 2~4 points.
You can select the animation or poses used for standing, walking, running, jumping, photon dashing, photon gliding, and swimming,
