    It’s a little tricky… big picture, a lot to consider, cramming it down into a 32×32 area…

    I focused only on the character in the image:

    question for Gavin or some other admin that may know??

    Is it possible to increase the default pixels of avatars from 32×32 to something a tad bit better like 64×64.

    It would make a lot of cool pics not lose their detail when converted to avatars.

    would having 64×64 avatars make them bigger during gameplay? if so then I can see why they should remain 32×32.

    see the difference below.

    yes making them 64*64 would make them twice bigger in the game as well; allowing bigger sizes to rescale them in the game is not really smart expecially because scorch doesn’t have the high quality rescaling algorythms that are included in picture editing programs.

    on further note; a bigger picture is also bigger in size as you can see in the post; the servers already have restirctions on image size; aloowing bigger image may not let some images to be used (the restrictions are needed to reduce the database load & upload time in the game)

    I was wondering why my avatar is not displayed in the stats. All I see is the black/white avatar.

    Does anyone who know why.

    My main concern with making the avatars bigger would mean doubling the size of this area of the stats database. My database is already big enough without making that change. 😉

    it has to do with the daily stat update (11:00PM for PST). I have noticed that if you decide to play a game right b4 the update, the database update will not quite catch your newly used avatar, so it’ll show up the next day if u continue to use the same one.

    this wont occur when u use the same 1 all the time. or when u play a game hours b4 the daily update.

    Thank you NP. I thought I did something wrong. And yes I was playing and change my avatar 20 minutes before the update.

    To make matters worse, doubling the resolution will actually result in an image that is 4 times larger (likely not quite that bad, as the compression works better with a larger image). 😉

    animated gif and larger avatars have been brought up in the past. due to the demands, as Bob was saying, Gavin doesn’t want it. I like keeping the avatars as they are, allows for all the emphasis to be on the tanks.

    since when he said it?
    it’s even in the ToDo list

    about the size of animated avatars, as i said there is a limit for it settable by the servers; you can already use animated avatars; they will just be showed as stuck pictures in the game & animated only in the stats pages
