Is it a standard practice (on PS store) for these game avatars to be sold? I would have thought they would be free or sold for mere cents. $6 for 20 pictures you can find online sounds like a lot. I suppose it's for those that really like them, or want to support the devs. So, what is PS store cut on that price? Steam store cut is 15%, on all transaction on the Community Market.

I think game Avatars are free on Steam, as long as the devs actually bother to upload them. Here they are (http://steamcommunity.com/actions/GameAvatars/). I've nugged Stoic a couple of times to do that.

Yes it is standard practice on PS to sell them. The individual avatars are like $0.49 each, and you can buy them as bundles. I really don't expect it to be a big seller, just a nice to have. FWIW it's incredibly time consuming and difficult to upload and publish these avatars on PS.

I'd love to upload the Steam Avatars, but I really have no idea where or how to do that. I've looked all over my dashboards and controls, the documentation, and etc... and I don't know how to do it. I'll keep looking, but if you learn anything please let us know!

Ok, I found it. I uploaded the saga1+saga2 avatars to Steam. The uploaded avatars have transparent backgrounds, which end up looking black on Steam. I'm not sure the black looks great.


Let me know what you think!

Woot! Thanks, John! :)

Faen awesome, John!!! :D You could have Arnie put that sky-blue background, as the black is a bit off putting, especially on characters with dark hair (like Aleo! :o)

Also -- Whatever happened to that Vognir portrait during Saga1 production? Why did you eventually change it to the "default" Factions Warmaster one?

Ok I've updated them with blue backgrounds. And I'm not sure why Vognir isn't really Vognir in that pic :)

Yay! I assumed my true "avatar" on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/aleonymous/

Please, sort this Vognir portrait conflict! This blond/old look seems more fitting than the ginger/young Faction Warmaster one:

Something about the way the mustache on the blonde one sticks out bugs me. The hair color isn't bad but I like the look of the bottom one more. I hope people buy some of them. I don't have a PS4 or I would just because.
