Hood On/Off Toggle?

I am so disappointed there is no hood toggle yet, I really thought it would be in by patch 1.3. I kinda like my JC's hood, but I'd like to be able to toggle it off for story quests so half of my screenshots aren't of a brown blob.

Not to mention that my Miraluka Inquisitor has awful clipping issues with the hood on my absolute favorite style of chest piece . . . yet Miraluka can't display most headgear due to clipping issues, so the "equip a headband" trick won't work. And I recently saw an NPC wearing the exact same style, but with the hood down. So mean, Bioware! ;_;

The only reason I can think of for this feature taking so long is if they are doing an actual hood up/hood down appearance for every hooded chest piece in the game. If a hood toggle is added and it is just the hood magically vanishing like it does for Twi'leks, I will really be scratching my head over that.

Not going to Comin-Con, but I am going to continue to clog up the Q&A thread with the question of a hood toggle until they give us a firm answer!

1.3 Dropped and with all this gear we can now wear with adaptive coming out I'm even madder than ever at this. I have a level 35 medium armor chest piece on my guardian I wear at fleet so I feel like a Jedi. Albeit one in stupid colors, but at least the hood is down. Too bad it's not modable. Heck, I don't even care if Bioware is giving us cinematics of us moving our hoods up and down, I just want 1 hood down chest I can mod out until "soon" comes. It was suppose to be in the next update after 1.2, and then it got pushed back.

6 months in this game and the same issue. Never been so absolutely angry with some MMO issue in my life.

I asked on Twitter and as usual was ignored and recieved no answer. Any faith I have in Bioware is dwindling quite fast as they leave glaring art issues unfixed and don't even acknowldge the problem.

To me BW has been operating in damage control mode and anything not essential has been put on hold. With server transfers looking to be successful and if 1.3 proves to help staunch the loss of subscriptions I'm fairly confident they will start fixing the cosmetics that we find so annoying.

Unfortunately they "started" back in February. There was a post in the dev Q+A that mentioned it was a "considerable task for the art department" and that a hood toggle wouldn't be ready for 1.2, but the patch after. Since then, they haven't said a word, and here we are at the "patch after".

Personally, I feel like we all pay $15/month, and there's been such an outcry for just a SINGLE piece of hood-down heavy jedi-knight armor, that they could have just mocked ONE up and put it in the game already. Why do they need to wait for once every 3 months to add stuff if we're paying each month. Why not just throw something in with the weekly maintenance? Just a single piece...anything....please let me see my character's face......

Bioware, we KNOW you can read all this. I even made mention of it on my "Let's show bioware what we really want" thread. The general consensus is that we are in fact, NOT satisfied with the "hood toggle" that you've given us thus far. We appreciate that you guys are kinda sorta listening and actually put it in there but , once again, when we toggle it...our hoods are....just GONE. There are countless npc's with their hoods down, with the hood draped down their back, you guys post picture after promo picture of jedi with their hoods down, with the hood draped down their back. The Jedi in the damn character creation screen have their hoods down with it draped down their backs. This tells us that the actual 3d models of the gear are in game already. I'm sure y'all put in a lot of work for all this legacy gear and social gear this and that for the 1.3 patch, why is it that somewhere in there, y'all couldn't have been like, "we need to get these hoods draped down some backs here...."

It really sounds ridiculous like, why would we be making such a big stupid deal about something so small? Maybe it's not so small, the devil is in the details remember. Most of us want that iconic jedi look, for example yet again:

Oh and how about THIS for an example, straight up official bioware art:

Look at that hood down!

So you guys still wanna tell us this can't be done?

A hood up/down toggle was a feature I was really looking forward to. The misleading quotes already mentioned in this thread cause me some disappointment. I'm tired of every Robe for JKs having a hood unless you display your head piece (which is apparently a bug).

Perhaps that picture with Jedi and HK droid is implying that we'll get the hood toggle in the major expansion with HK itself? Considering that the recent 1.3 didn't contain any new content but rather improvements for the game, I can't really call it "major".

i doubt it, they seem to just use the hood down for marketting, kinda ridiculous really since it seems like it would very easy to implement

Its disgusting that this wasn't in at launch, now months later they are making all kinds of excuses. I think even fan boys like me are starting to realize how flawed this game is.
