Hood On/Off Toggle?

Galifrayan, we were promised a hood toggle in one of the Q&A before 1.2. They knew about it, they said they work on it but there no way for us to learn the progress status on it - we're simply being ignored for months.

"NiklasWB: When will you make it possible for Force-using characters to pull up/down their hoods on their robes?

Damion Schubert: This is in the works now. It won't be in Game Update 1.2, but should get done in the next major update after that. And yes, we will extend this functionality to your Force-slinging companions as well.
While we do not have anything more recent in terms of information, please know it is coming!"

"This is in the works... Know it is coming"

How long, Bioware?

As a player who sticks strictly to Jedi I have to say overall, Robes suck... hood or no hood, butt or no butt. Give me all black
I know you'll thank me for using spoiler on that.
Roll your alts first, make the mistakes that teach you lessons, then roll your main and enjoy the ride.

Is the only way to get the yellow message in this thread is hitting the 99 page limit? :/

My guess is that the guy who was writing the code for the hood toggle got the axe among the many who got fired in the two rounds (may and july ).

Since he's gone now and no handover was done hood toggle must be restarted from scrap by cheap offshore devs who've never touched the code before, with the only documentation being scribbled on a postit lost in the paper bin....

Promise is a promise and it was done in the name of the company, not individual. :/ Why do you think they'd have to start from the scrap? They surely must have whatever the hood toggle worker worked on so far.

So many posts and pages and not a single dev has responded. It's obvious that they've seen the thread, because it's constantly here. They're just avoiding the subject, hoping it will go away. It won't.

What especially makes me angry is that there are NPC hoods toggled on probably half the robe sets we have, and there are player hoods toggled on most of the pictures for upcoming updates. So they can do it and apparently do it easily, so why not just give us a simple hood toggle, it doesn't even have to be amazing, just something simple.

The only way to let it go is to get me banned from here...

I will keep quoting what the devs promised months ago until it will be delivered... Or at least addressed!

A little note about this would be great.
I know no problem is as easy as it seems from the outside but something similar already works in the game. Twi'lek characters doesn't have hoods, and some headgear also turn them off. So that part of the code could be modified to turn them on/off as the players wish.
Of course this doesn't solve the problem of the twi'leks wanting hoods on, or some masks (as I heard) but at least one step closer and make a sizeable chunk of the players happy.

(not to mention there are hoods that absolutely not fitting to the gear piece, like a separate cap on the character:
"Many weapons can kill, but only the lightsaber can inspire such extremes of hope or fear."

What's funny is that several armor pieces have two hoods. The Emperor can be seen with that. Recruit armor for the sage also has two hoods... one down and one up at the same time.
