I think BW will never fix this and if they do, only on next xpac.

I kind of agree. I think this one is slightly more important, because we know the hood down robes are in the game already (character creation screen, every single NPC Jedi) whereas the huge butt thing may or may not be a physics issue and be slightly more complicated to fix.

Also, the butt thing only effects certain players (admittedly, a majority but still), while all of us are screwed by the hood thing.

Thankfully, both threads are very active, so there is some slim hope. After the Kira situation is resolved, I think these two things will be the next most glaring for the Knight class, and will hopefully be addressed.

All I really want is at least some acknowledgement from a dev that no, this is not what they intended and yes, they do intend to fix it.

this is the main reason i didnt roll a Twi'lek which is what i wanted to roll since i started following the game. AND why my last two Jedi toons i made were bald.

Also, to add to the chances we can get an official response, make sure you make a ticket on this ingame. List it under either bugs or item/loot, and be polite but explanatory.

The goal is to make sure they're aware of the issue, not to berate them for it.

Why? It's a simple fix, the art is already done in many cases, the hoods already disappear for Twi'Leks, it would make lots of people happy, and it would be in line with what they advertised for years. It seems obvious that they would fix it very soon to me. Why do you think they won't? Not being a jerk. Just curious.

Seriously, hoods need a toggle.. They are good at times, yes, but not for the entire game! And personally, I'm not fond of seeing a bald female head half hidden behind a hood!

It ruins every cinematic out there!

The best possible solution would be an appearance tab system like LOTRO, but even simply making the "show helmet" toggle in the UI settings apply to the hood on chest pieces would be a HUGE improvement.

At the minimum, at least add some mod-able Jedi armors that do not have the hood (the monstrosity that is the lvl 20 PvP armor doesn't count....yikes what an awful design)
It is a big deal. Why be the only class that can't look at the character they created? Why should anyone have to do this? Knowing that no gear that doesn't make you hooded and bald in the many hours of cut scenes that form the heart of this game is coming your way takes all the fun out of getting new chestpieces, and getting new gear is one of the fun things about MMO's. It makes you stuck with one or two tolerable looks and that's it.

And an appearance tab won't fix this, because you would simply be picking from the options that are in the game, and right now, there are hardly any no-hood options to choose from that make you look remotely like a Jedi. Basically just the robes from Tython.

We need the hood down versions of at least the moddable armors in the game, but we really need a hood toggle which would get us back to being able to look forward to getting new gear, which is honestly one of the main sources of fun in an MMO, which we currently cannot enjoy if we want to look like our character as we created them or as our class was presented to us on this website and the Creation Screen.

The lack of unhooded options is extremely dissapointing. I understand that development can be difficult, but unhooded robes should have been implemented from the start.
