Hood On/Off Toggle?

I went a different route to get away from having the hood/robe look, and crafted an orange heavy-armor chest piece that's really designed for a trooper. I'll have to figure out how to take and post a screenshot, but it's all white. Has a couple 'armor panels' on it, but it's not that heavy plate look - and no backpack like a lot of the trooper armor has.

I think it's called "Plastoid" or something.

To get rid of the hood, Iv just saved some Commendations and bought headgear for Smuggler[I think!], and moved all my mods etc into that.

I suggest all Sentinel players that are sick of the hood to get some moddable item for other classes and use it. Toggle Hood Off/On may not be coming soon.

The hoods should have just been a separate model for helm items, not part of the chest piece. With those combined with existing helm looks we'd get a lot more variety in our character looks with the same amount of models too.
This might be the best solution of all, as anything bigger than a headband cancels out the hood anyway. Or they could just add the hood down armors that are all over this web site into the actual game, and people wouldn't have to wear trooper clothes or smuggler hats just to see the character they created.

Actually what I've been doing is keeping the Aspiring Knight's robe with the hood down from Synthweaving in my inventory. I equip it whenever I am about to speak to a quest giver or turn one in. I then re-equip my normal robe when out in the wild.

I know it's not convenient, but it does make dialogue much more enjoyable.

I'm using a synthweaved tunic as well, but I know that end-game ops won't support my use of it soon. (A lot of end-game gear is two socket gear, as opposed to three. That's another solution, converting all epic gear to three sockets instead of two, but I doubt we'll see that happen.)

My problem with hooded robes is that they hide your face, thereby effectively eliminating all the time you spent during character creation. Using helms to prevent hoods does nothing to reemedy this problem, since once again you're hiding your character's face/details.

Have you ever noticed none of the Jedi Masters in the cutscenes or Class quests use hoods? There's a reason, it's called character identity. I'm all for having hoods, but as an option.

There's a reason we have a "helm on/off" toggle. It should apply to hoods. Period.

So a while back I stopped playing my JK. This hood issue ruined it for me. I only do the daily space missions, which are btw over rewarded (My JK only finished Taris, no bonus quests whatsoever, and is LV28)

I started a trooper instead. Now that is what it should be like! Whoever designed JK did the worst job by far. Trooper is fun, you can rp, all aspects of it are like I expected and even better.
The gear looks just right, You slowly progress towards epic and is fun, companions can all wear heavy armor so you can get that army feel and uniformity, its just all right.

JK literally sucks. In every way possible. Sad, because that is what I bought the game for. Trooper is as epic as the trailers show you, Jedi is just a joke. A sick bad joke.

My trooper has serious power compared to the JK, who often struggles with story bosses. My trooper can beat ACT 1 at LVL 28! My Jedi needed help at LVL 32.

So to sum it up:

JK gameplay sucks
JK story is weak, or is it just the dumb hood and butt?
JK looks dumb
JK cant roleplay
JK is seriously underpowered is both PVE and PVP (latter is just a poor excuse for a class)

FIX IT!

This should be the most iconic class! FIX IT!!
