I like the Avatar feature in the Meta line up of software, but there seems to be no way I can make the Avatar look my age. I am proud to be an older gamer and I am not keen that my Avatar looks several decades younger than my actual age.

I've rooted around in the customisation controls, but there doesn't seem to be any way to make my avatar look older.

Please could you add these options to avatar editor.

I'm kind of proud to be old too.

Apart from giving myself greyish hair, that's about it for now. Hopefully the next iteration of avatars has wider choice including wrinkles... or smile lines as I like to call them. I must be smiling in a lot of places I didn't realise!

Are you talking about the avatar that you can see in the mirror?

You can give it wrinkeles, there is an option in menu.

 

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I'm older than you😂

I'll take a look at it, but from what I remember, there were no real options for grey streaks in the hair, or beard, and not much in the way of adding 'laughter lines' as DaftnDirect mentioned.

Okay, just had a look, but I could not see an option for wrinkles. I found Lines for the eyes, but that seemed to have virtually no effect.

And I am 60 very soon....

I'm female, so I never cared about beard, but if you see eye lines,...scroll down.....then you'll find the option for wrinkles.

 

I'm 60 since April....i have won😂

OK you win... just!

It's been a while since I looked at the wrinkle options so I wonder if they've added more or made them a bit more pronounced, I'll take a close look. It might just be that my eyes are so old I can't tell the difference.

It's not that pronounced, could surely be better, but........ at least you don't look like a teenie.

Yeah, there are some features to add a bit of age, but it just takes me from teenager to about 35, which is still half my age.

I just feel there is a market they are missing. Lots of older gamers on this thread and I would imagine, in the Meta membership, it would be nice if Meta acknowledged their presence by allowing them to look as they wish to look.

In the Metaverse people above 40 are not existing.😂

I posted some of my thoughts about the avatar editor in "Ideas" and included your wish to be make them look older.

Who knows....maybe it'll help.🙂

Months later, old people in Meta continue to be ignored.

Come on Boswell! Throw the older generation a bone. Add some aging options in the avatar builder. Make us feel like we are part of the community, and not the people you prefer to ignore!

I mean, how hard can it be?
