Create blonde characters? Seems a bit harsh to have an issue with that...

No I mean the quality of this new character looks like complete garbage. Like they handed a 2 year old a computer with mspaint and said "here, make us a new character"

I have to admit that I thought something similar. She looks pretty bad. Her face and hair just doesn't fit with the rest of the NPCs and PCs. And I'm not just referring to the fact that we don't have the option to use either.

Yep this is shoddy facial modeling. The wild hair, the eyelids/lashes clipping, skin tone, nose shape, texture unevennes, no eyelights/reflections, mydriasis. I understand it's a one-off NPC and not a customization for player toons where we'd have to look at it day in day out (can you imagine anyone paying CCs for this cosmetic unlock) but that's no excuse for this sloppy work. It looks half finished and very amateurish. As a result it looks very out of place and therefore breaks story immersion which is what BW is supposedly about. It's a shame because so far she's written as an interesting character.

btw, Theron Shan could use a sharper more defined nose than the one in game.

I kind of wonder if they have or follow standardized procedures/checklists. Like when you make/reskin a robotic mask or helm, make sure it is flagged for voice modulation in the game files from the getgo. When you make a new double lightsaber, make sure it is scaled down when holstered on the belt so it doesn't stick out like a 3rd leg. When you create a new NPC face for Lana make sure her eyes have eyelights and don't make her look like poo.

What are you animals talking about? Lana is adorable. Unconventional doesn't mean ugly.

I definitely agree with Lugnut. This looks like an amateur textured her poorly just like this cartoon...

So every (human) character has to be tanned & attractive with coiffed hair? If you're going towards the dark side, you're supposed (IMO) to look a bit fuggly/not-a-hollywood-starlet.
