Hood On/Off Toggle?

This is why I use armor meant for a trooper and replaced the mods.

I hear if you're a twi'lek that your hood is down. The toggle should be easy; toggle hood down=treat your graphics as if you were twi'lek for your chestpiece.
Honestly, what could go wrong?

No, the hood is not down for Twi'leks.

There is no hood at all.

I want my toons' hair back. I spent ages in the character generator making toons.

Now my jedi look as if they're part of some weird cult that makes them shave off their hair and wear a hood.

I'm keeping the low level chest pieces for RP purposes, but really, I spend more time out in the field pouncing bad guys than I do RPing...

An orange option sans hood would be easy enough to stick on a vendor. Or even a schematic.

G: Will there be more character customization options in the future? Are there any plans to implement some sort of barber shop or plastic surgeon that will allow players to change their appearance in game? Maybe a toggle for the hoods?

C: Do you want to be able to drop your hood and put it back up?

G: Yeah I’d like to drop my hood, because I play a Guardian and basically all our armor has hoods.

C: That’s definitely stuff we talk about often. We haven’t really announced any formal plans, but it’s very important to us to allow players to fullfill their own personal Star Wars fantasy and along with that we want them to be able to customize their character the way they want, so it’s something we’re currently taking feedback on and we’re making plans on how to address in the future.



so there we have it, they are aware, "taking feedback" and it seems it will be awhile before its addressed
I cannot believe what I read here
It only meens "we know you are upset by the hoods but we don't care about it"

If a real and clean hood toggle is hard to do (hmpf) then add an option in the social settings to remove the hood (using the twillek/helm code).

Or they could just add back all the hoodless armour we used to have in beta which they removed from the launch client. And then they won't need a hood toggle becuase we would have a choice again.

^^^^ This. Pretty sure I suggested the same thing like 20 pages ago, but w/e.

For Twi'leks, the hood is indeed taken off. So why can't they just add a "Show Hood" option in the preferences next to "Show Helm" ? If the player checks yes, all you have to do is flag them as though they were twi'lek.

The hood isn't down though, it is completely removed. But it'd still be nice to have that as an option, until they make it so we can put hoods up / down properly.

The fact that they removed armors with the hood down just makes me so angry I am on the verge of just cancelling my sub over this and never looking back. The person that made this decision should be fired, I can't be nice about this as it is just ruining my experience with the game.
The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural.

It results in a pretty cool Smuggler styled Sent. It is a shame though that Bioware doesn't deviate from the bathrobe/housecoat template for Jedi gear.

Everyone wants to look like the archetype they've been promoting all these years.

As a compromise - I'd be willing to accept this.
Dude, those smuggler headpieces, with or without the mods, contain integral smuggler mitigation mods which are usless to you - just as the jedi headpieces you have dispensed with contain integral jedi mods you are not taking advantage of.

It really shouldn't be that hard to remove the hood on some of this. I can synthweave a light armor robe that has a hood down yet the heavy armor that looks similar only has a hood up. I guess I don't get it.
