I found a way to keep the hood down, on the commendations vendor on Hoth sells a Elder Vindicator's Headgear, for some reason when you equip it it forces the hood to turn off. Now if you want the hood to come back up go into the social options and turn off the helm display.

Partially confirmed, via the CTRL left/click preview. Unfortunately the Elder Vindicator's Headgear is Heavy Armor, and I'm incapable of wearing this piece because I'm a Sentinel. However, it indeed *appears* that wearing this piece is a solution.

Clearly this invalidates the argument that artwork would have to be redone for a /hood option to be implemented, since as far as the game client is concerned, rendering of the the hood can be easily suppressed depending on the headpiece (or in this case an eye visor).

Too bad I didn't roll a Guardian, I'd be all over this little item.

Unfortunately Geordi LaForge is not any better than hoods.

1) Hood suppressed is not the same as hood down. Though; if you're careful, ANY SINGLE piece in the game that has a hood, you can see a hood down version on the NPCs (especially on Tython, if you play a consular you'll meet things that makes you cry if you started with a Jedi Knight). So yeah kinda right. The hood is just a clipping part, and they have both up and down made :/ .

2) There's a medium helmet which is what you're looking for, check out the GTN. My Sentinel has it. It's not a visor, it doesn't hide the face, and lets the hair visible.

Either let me toggle the hood, or let my hair show normally while wearing it.

You mean the one that covers the sides and bottom of your face? Its not any better either. I want to see my Jedis face, without anything covering it.

GOD BW PLEASE, give us an update on either this or the "Devs, Please add the following already existing armor in game" thread!!

I have seven days left.

Has BW acknowledged this problem yet? Just can't deal with the hood up robes anymore. And btw the hoth headpiece REMOVES the hood, not to mention that it covers your face as well.

I +1 this. BioWare please let my hair be visible! If I wanted to go bald I would have chosen that option when creating my character!

FFS fix this or at least tell us you're aware of this. We know you can simply fix it as there is evidence in game already. Stop ignoring the forums.
