Alright so at one point I was aware that Bioware was working on this for us and I've been waiting patiently for a very long time. I'm begining to wonder if they've quit or something. Seriously; how long does it take to get this mechanic working?

Also; I was told by someone in the game that Bioware had decided NOT to do the hood on/off toggle for some stupid reason. Is this so?

I fail to see any good reason for Bioware NOT to make this. What could be bad about it? I am the customer and I want a hood on/off toggle! I'm sorry if I come off as pissed (I kinda am) but I've been waiting patiently for a very long time.

Oh, you know it is so hard to implement so it's still gonna take a long while and it was moved further back on the priority list. But at least you've got companion toggle and color matching, thanks from working on the hood toggle! Oh, and don't mind it was promised to arrive in the next major patch after 1.2. It's still works but you won't see it in the short future.

Meanwhile they're going to put one Jedi robe into cartel packs (Conservator's Robe) which seems to be the only hood-down Jedi robe in the entire game to be added in the short future.

Seriously, some real eta would be welcome after a year!

Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

I had a thought the other day (just the one, though!).

With the invisible 'covert armour' chest piece coming in cartel packs (which is 'invisible'), how hard would it be to make a covert armour piece for the headslot?

I mean, it's invisible. And if you toggle head slot to on, it would appear as if your hood is down.

Not perfect, but a possible workaround of sorts?

Wait; was it seriously promised to arrive after 1.2?

Yes, do you seriously want me to look up the source for the 12th time...?

Found it:

And having the invisible head piece to overwrite the hood wouldn't solve it because it would turn a robe into a trenchoat :/

See my sig for your answer.

A lot of people have wanted this for a long time but I wouldn't hold my breath on it happening any time soon.
Soon ()

I love the people who say they don't take the game too seriously but post on the forum from sunup to sundown.

Yes. They answered in the Q&A that they were working on it but it would not make it in 1.2 but definitely 1.3 so yeah...probably never going to see it.

I would like an answer on this argument, cause it's really a good thing to have.

They also need to allow Hoods to display as "on" when masks are worn. I have several cool looking masks with my Inq that for whatever reason make the hood disappear. Heck, the masks are even smooth looking with no bulges that would clip.

The only discovered hood-down Jedi robe that is to come in a short future is going into friggin' cartel packs...
