Yes but do the 5 years in carbonite count as well ? Do the character still age while frozen in carbonite ?
If not, they're physically 5 years younger than their actual age.

I'd not mind a few appearance options to make characters look older though. I'd probably not use them, but they'd still be there for people who want to.
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

Aye, but if I recall correctly, the feature of having such an appearance customization option has already been asked for, for years :P perhaps one day we'll finally get it in some new appearance customization pack.

Well, that's the question, isn't it? Because, if all goes well with carbon freezing then indeed, the person shouldn't have their body aging. However, our characters' carbon freezings were supposedly imperfect (although granted it's Valkorion saying it, so we can fully trust him), which had led to the poisoning we need to be cured of by Lana in chapter 3.

For sure. I've been at least following the forums since 2013, and there have been occasional(1) calls for an age slider of some sort during the whole of that time.

I'd guess that by now, it's on the crazier end of the "wall of crazy" because the crew who built that part of the game are long gone, and the "launch-time" code is known to be a crazy mess of tangled flooflah. But hey, if they find a way to do it without breaking things, sure, go to it!

(1) It's by no means "frequent", but it's not "never" either.

Aye, I recall. Tbh, I have campaigned for a Dark Side corruption slider in the past as well, although I have long since abandoned that crusade as it's clear it's unlikely to happen. Luckily, we got the yellow Sith eyes as an appearance customization option. Now, if only those eyes could also be made available to the Twi'lek, I'd be happy as a clam... but what I'm trying to say with that is, that while an age slider seems unlikely, wrinkled appearance customization options might be introduced in the future.

I'd like to see some age-related cosmetic options, as well.

I get tired of running around CW world where everyone's in their 20's.

with certain (probably only human, not sure TBH) options, you can make a player look aged, I've a couple who look old, one even looks like one of the npc's on hutta, (that gives you the mission to recover the briefcase). More options, especially for other spieces would be great
No Idea if people use these, but if so, here's my referral link

NPCs having wrinkles instantly tells you that they're older. With players, you would be able to tell the difference between chars who are supposed to have dyed white hair as opposed to chars who are supposed to look older than 20/30ish.
