Cafe World avatar system overhauled, game performance (slightly) increased

Apparently users had been clamoring for a change to the avatar system in Cafe World (which was admittedly archaic), as Zynga has responded in kind, completing overhauling the appearance of avatars in the game. Gone are the square heads and body parts from past avatars - in are the new rounded legs, circular heads, and fairly pear shaped bodies.

You can still go about changing your avatar by clicking on the small chef icon in the bottom menu, and you'll still have the option of changing your avatar's clothing and facial features one by one, with eye color, hair style, and more being available as options. The most noteworthy feature here though is the fact that these clothing items are now free. That's right - you won't have to pay thousands of coins to outfit your avatar in some new fashions, as every clothing item currently in the store (as of this writing) is free.
