What's up with sparkly eyes in the character select? They were never this much, almost Asian, sparkly.

Asians have sparkly eyes?

Maybe it means we can get Acina/Arcann eyes on our characters soon. You mean glassy-moist look to the eyes, right?

As for the sparkly eyes... I've noticed that, depending on graphics settings, eyes can appear to be either so shiny they look like they're made of glass, or so flat and dull they look painted on. Maybe this update tweaked the lighting in the character select screen? (Haven't logged on to check.)

I'm trying to stay awake while my launcher updates, so I can't check myself yet. Curious to see if this is case though. The light that shines on my agent is as bright and harsh as the lighting in a junior high locker room, I feel bad for her.

Yes. It has that sparkle in the upper portion of the eyes. I don't see it on Red Zabraks(and Purebloods I think), but I see it on everyone else.

You're right, it's there, I see the sparkles. (And of course my agent still needs sunglasses on her own ship. I don't know why that light bothers me so.)

Just logged in to check, and...whoa. Yeah. That's sparkly.
And at last I seeee the liiiiight... though maybe not to that ridiculous degree. Yikes.

It's not just in the character selection it's while playing too, character eyes are now much more "reflective" (i.e. show some fake reflection map)

5.5 quickly rises in my list of most annoying patches.
Tune down reflections to pre 5.5 values!
Move inventory tabs back to the bottom!
Remove the blue glow from useable stronghold objects and decorations!
