The new avatars are a downgrade

Why can't I change my skin to be a cosmic nebula anymore? Where did the hats go? These avatars are so boring and ugly it is seriously turning me off Oculus games. I used to be so excited to look down and see my starry hands, and now I'm just another random character. It defeats the purpose of VR imo. They were on the right track and I was expecting there to be more and better customization, not less. Why would they do this?

    I haven't tried these yet, but the Avatar component is supposed to allow for some great future customization. If the latest patch doesn't have them all yet, it's only a matter of time. Plus, Dev's can now support Oculus Avatars in their games, and even SteamVR should support it. If there was a sacrifice with this first release, it is likely related to the need to launch with full cross-compatibility.

    I agree

    Would be great to have the choice of the older and newer ones in one package.
    A number of us like the older that is obvious, i assume though the newer are more appealing in social networking apps to Oculus, at a guess.


    Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.

    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
