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

Agreed - I've been thinking about this too. I'd like to see new face options, not just add-ons like hair, tattoos, etc. Edit to clarify: we DO need Head, complexion, cosmetic/tattoo, and accessory/jewelry options.

Other options: I'd like hair options that would work in the head slot to add hair appearance under hoods. How about other hair options that work in the head slot that would remove the hood on cosmetic gear and provide an easy way to change hair appearance.

For weapon appearance, why do we need a cosmetic slot when you could merge stats to the weapon of your choice? Just adding a weapon modification station ability to swap stats from one weapon to another. Put a weapon with desired stats into slot A, weapon with desired appearance into slot B, click and voila!

I'm sure I'll be back with more ideas.

Thanks for posting this Ylliarus

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!
All my +1's to this especially around Twi'leks who desperately need some customization love. I remember back when Togruta's were released and loving all the skin color options that we were given and thinking at the time similar colors would soon be available for the Twi'leks to, didn't happen though.

No. We dont need it.
I'm pretty sure Sith players are perfectly ok with having one face per gender, just as much as Twi'lek players are ok with having no clean complexions. Not to mention Zabrak players - nobody plays Zabrak anyway.
What we really need is another useless mount for 1500 CC that looks like it was designed by someone both mentally handicapped and blind, 100500 "new" armor sets for 2500 CC that 5 yo son of Keith or 7 yo daughter of Eric created while sitting in a restroom, and of course we need assault cannon that looks so lewd i wouldn't recommend show it to children.
I bet our dear devs will agree with me on that.

For a moment there I was concerned, but I see what you did there

It's true though, there are no clean complexions for the Twi'lek. Like, I get that they're frequently regarded as the slave species, but you'd think that a Twi'lek that becomes a Jedi or Sith would clean up a bit.

Be nice I agree to have more options. However for me the option I go for every time is already in game for Twi'leks .

New options or new species? Think new species for me, both be better though.

Hm, isn't the last one, the one with no eyebrows pretty clean ? That's the one i always use while creating a Twil'ek because i find the eyebrows with no hair disturbing.
In need of more Arcann, Aric, Torian, Vector, and a lot, lot, lot more Theron.
There's nothing like geting too much Theron

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.
The shells changes impact the armor set not the weapons, the only thing that might change your weapon are the amplifiers on each mod/armoring/enhancement, so yeah you can still use any modabble weapon like you use to, at least its like that in the PTS.

If you are talking about the fact than the PTS vendor had at some point only non-modabbles weapons to sell, its fixed now.

I agree a vanity weapon slot would be great !

If I recall on a livestream before Onslaught's announcement they talked about some customization options for aliens and I think Twi'leks were mentioned. They stated they did run into problems but we should expect them sometime or another. So I imagine once the craziness of Onslaught's launch dies off we should see them sort of whatever the issue was and provide twi'lek players some much needed love.

Cyborgs lack face variety compared to humans. See below.

Not true. Cyborgs have four tiny variations each of three human faces per sex, and Pureblood Sith have basically one "core" face per sex with assorted pobble variations.
