It's Been A While Since We Had New Appearance Customization Options

I think it is high time for new appearance customization options, because it's been ages since we got the last bundle. While Humans and Cyborgs have quite a lot of slider options to choose from, there are still races that have a woefully lacking amount of appearance options to choose from. The most glaring of these are in my opinion the Twi'lek facial designs.

While Twi'lek female characters have a slightly bigger variety in facial designs, for the male Twi'lek this is absolutely not the case. You have 3 ethnicities and there is barely any difference between the facial designs in each ethnicity group. In this case, I'd say: port over the Human faces to the Twi'lek as well. Every other species except the Cathar have access to the Human faces, so I'd say let the Twi'lek have them as well. While entirely new facial designs would be epic (including for all the other species), it is understandable that there are budget and time constraints, so a port would suffice.

But I also think we should have a lot more appearance customization options in general. Throw in a pack with exotic skin colours for humans, like green, pink, pale white, blue etc etc, so we can finally toy around with near-human species like the Zeltron or the Pantorans. Add new skin colours to the other species, like purple for the Twi'lek. Extend the yellow Sith eye colour to other species as well, new hair colours, hair styles, I can go on and on, but it all comes down to one single point:

Please give us new appearance customization options!

The devs are currently devoting all resources to making the conquest system garbage again.

You know what I would really appreciate?
New face morphs for cathar so they look more meowish. I'm not entirely sure if this is the case, but I have the impression that the face models available are the same for other species. Cathar stand out quite a bit here because the NPC cathar in the game have faces that are modeled specifically for their species. I don't know how hard this is to add to the game though; it's obviously different from just making new textures for implants, makeup or kitty stripes, but I just feel like cathar are a bit limited in this regard.

Probably cheaper to hire a few easy-to-prey-upon "passionate" game dev programmers to tweak existing systems on contract for an expansion than to pay for artists to make new assets.

Female Twi'lek also have only 3 actually different faces to choose from.

I'd like more options for Zabrak too at least a few more tatoos, skin tones and horns
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

There is a real need to do some BETTER companion facial and hair customization options as well. And I mean some that players would ACTUALLY use !! We already have enough of the bazaar stuff... complete with scared faces.

Right now the truth is (to quote Han Solo ... )

Sith only have 1! They just get choices in facial tentacles and jewelry.

True though, there isn't really any diversity in their facial designs except where the tendrils or bone spurs are. I understand that at the launch of the game these options were sufficient, but it's been so many years already... I believe all the playable species need a serious boost in new facial designs.

Because of how shells are going to work in 6.0, everyone will be stuck using really bad looking weapons instead of ones earned previously or bought through the cartel market.

They really need to focus on adding weapons to the appearance tab, so much so that any other additions to appearance needs to take a back seat until that's finished.
