Oh, the various headgear that does this is immensely useful indeed, but gets removed in cutscenes like helmets so you end up with the hood up again.

Better than having BW spend a lot more hours developing a separate outfit slot interface for weapons.
Good thing I'm not using an Eternal Commander MK-15 (T2) that costs a lot of doodlypoints to get, then.

Oh. Wait. I am using an Eternal Commander MK-15. But I don't want it to look like that. (Before that, I was using an MK-14 that made me look like one of those people advertising Coca Cola or something, with a giant can on my back. Uglier than a very ugly thing, and not moddable.)

While that doesn't actually mean we will get it, at least you are looking at the possibility.

So thats a start.

You're not alone...I hoard too much crap myself. I held onto my Elite Warhero Gear, PRAYING there would eventually be an appearance tab...and there WAS!!! Sadly, all start at 60 toons got the same armor (minus helmet), but I have the original

Ahhh yeah that sucks soooo much. For me though it will only happen in companion conversations. But of course they are usually the main ones you want a hood down on

I think most players would love this appearance feature added to the game. So great to hear.

That said.... note closely what Charles said and how he said it. It's VERY open ended. It may end up like other things promised in the past... where they say they are working on something and then come back later and tell us they could not get it to work and have tabled it.

Also note >>>> this is the first post in the forum from Charles in almost two years, even though he is Creative Director for SWTOR, and has had a key role in SWTOR for years. Positive context: If Keith achieves nothing as Producer other then more transparency and interaction with players by key people responsible for the progress of SWTOR.... that is good news. Negative context: But of course it's not enough.. words have to be followed up by actions that match the words.

I have to give this "promise" a vote of -------> embrace it if/when we actually see it, and temper expectations until then.
