It's not in for launch. You can use a custom (orange type) armor with the hood down and keep it modded to stay relevant if you want.
I would love to do this. However, I have not seen any orange armor anywhere that has the hood down... I've trolled the GNT, I check out all the players I can, and I think there just... aren't any hood down, orange, heavy Jedi armor sets in the game right now.
It seems like they must have been really rushed before launching this game to have such an oversight... I like this game a lot but I'm seeing a lot of things that suggest it could have used a little longer in the oven, ya know?
I'd really like to see this issue addressed in a meaningful way this month or next. It's not a huge issue to address, but it is a huge issue for me and other players. The resources are there, they're just not implemented on anything but NPCs... Which is sad.
