Thoughts on the current Nautolan Customisation?

The faces seem all the same and fairly ugly. There are very little differences other than slightly uglier. I agree that the head does not seem to change at all with body type which is unfortunate. I also agree it would be nice to have more skin colors and maybe some softer complexions to get that ruddy greenish-yellow hue off the face. I like the choices of montrals. I was really looking forward to creating a Nautolan for the new content but I don't know if I would want to play a character I couldn't stand looking at. I've seen Nautolan posters and characters in game which are much better looking and always made me want to play one. This was probably the one thing I was most looking forward to from the update. But after trying a dozen times to make a decent looking Nautolan on the PTS, I've lost some of that wind in my sail. I'm hoping there will be some improvements in the character creation.

The Nautolan heads are too small for the bodies, especially the female heads, and the body colour doesn't match the head colour. Looks very weird.

Yeah I don't really like anything they're offering...They don't even have a clean face choice. I'm not sure who is behind these designs but they're all bad.

Colors are meh, faces are bad, skin color is meh, heads are to small, no clean choices. They're all just meh or bad to me. This is my opinion if others like them, Great. I'm just feeling let down is all. I'm not really sure why they went the way the did with Nautolan's....but I don't support it.

I expect that at least part of the equation is needing to make mouths similar in size, shape, and placement to other existing races, for the sake of kissy cutscenes. But I wish they could find a way to achieve this while still looking more like NPC nautolans. Cutscene considerations don't dictate colour, muddiness, puffiness, etc.

female faces kinda fugly nowhere near as nice as npc one,
skin colors bit muted and could be expanded and some brightened,
jewelry is nice,
complexion like skin colors needs more variation and wish there was a color slider instead of repeated patterns with different color,
good job on tendrils but not sure how bad the clipping will be

LOL, wow. That's probably the worst case of clipping I've seen on a player character... ever

Just curious-- when I pull up the PTS and try to start a new toon, I see Togruta when I try to choose a Nautolan. If you click through, can you play with the new models?

Edit: NVM, I must have had a bug. Nautolans are Nautolans now. But... wow. Those models are awful It looks like they took the human faces and copy/pasted them onto the NPC models.

I think they designed the ridged, distorted, puffy famale Nautolan faces by looking at one of those little rubber pile of poo gag gifts. They also used the fake poo color to design the complexions.
