The fans spend a significant amount of time in Starfield's character creator, refining their designs before embarking on their space adventures.
The character creator in Starfield may be complex and may require trial and error, but it offers immense potential for creating unique characters. Furthermore, modders could enhance its user interface in the future.
A player of Starfield has put great effort into creating a faithful replica of Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2 in Bethesda's latest game. Their impressive achievement stands as one of the initial testaments to the incredible versatility of Starfield's character creator.
The long-awaited role-playing game is scheduled to release on September 6th for the current Xbox consoles and PC. However, those who have purchased a higher-tier edition have been able to play Starfield in early access since September 1st.
And although many fans seized the opportunity to embark on their space adventures five days prior to the official launch, not all of them immediately set off on their journey to the stars. Instead, they chose to spend a significant amount of time in the game's character creator. Among this group is Reddit user ShhMyLegsAreSleeping, who recently undertook the effort to recreate Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2 in Starfield. The player opted for Arthur's clean-shaven look, which is unlocked only after completing a specific mission in Saint Denis during the game's fourth chapter. The result of their efforts remarkably resembles the protagonist of Rockstar's successful game.
To further elucidate this feat, the creator of the replica revealed that they utilized the third Starfield facial presets pack as the foundation for their design. They then shaped each part of the face until they were satisfied with the character's appearance. This was likely no easy task, not least because Starfield's character creator is not particularly intuitive to operate. Most facial features—including the forehead, eyes, nose, and chin—are predominantly shaped through the manipulation of up to a dozen sliders, all classified as "shape blends," without any additional labeling or explanation.
Due to this UI approach, replicating a specific face in Starfield requires a lot of trial and error for first-time players. However, the character creator itself is just as powerful as its more intuitive counterpart in Fallout 4, allowing fans who wish to create in-game versions of themselves or others to do so with sufficient patience. Additionally, PC players can rely on Starfield modders to provide a more user-friendly interface for character creation in the future.
This impressive portrayal of Arthur Morgan in Starfield is not the first example of how fans utilize the game's character creator to design intergalactic adventurers inspired by other media franchises. Another such protagonist emerged online during the RPG's early access phase when someone decided to play Starfield as Tony Soprano.
Starfield will be released on September 6th for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
