Hood On/Off Toggle?

I have been waiting for this feature since my second day of playing. It has been and remains my number one complaint for the game.

Partly because of this issue, my interest in the game waned, but since the hood toggle was promised to be included in patch 1.3, I made plans to return and play a knight again. Alas, I was disappointed. Especially with the new custom armor and adaptive armor added, I was dumbfounded that there weren't at least some robes with the hood down added, like those on the Empire side. Perhaps BioWare is already working on the toggle, and sees adding hoodless robes as an unnecessary step-stone, but at this point, such a "band-aid" is sorely needed.

This is a broken record, I know, but it will keep screeching until it is given some much needed TLC.

"Perhaps BioWare is already working on the toggle..."

^^^ I wish bioware would make a statement again one way or the other instead of just letting this thread grow and fester.
Roll your alts first, make the mistakes that teach you lessons, then roll your main and enjoy the ride.

From the dev tracker:

"Hood up and hood down is still in the works. Unfortunately, it requires a few changes to our art pipeline and reprocessing those assets by the artists. The team has been hard at work on our upcoming content, and priorities put hood up/down on the back burner just a bit, but it's still on the To Do list and we are still very much aware of the demand - by developers and players alike!"
Some people reactions to the Disney buy out.

To Do list my ***. Listen to the players, take the 5 seconds of coding it takes to do it. If not, I cancel my subscription. I've been fighting in Light Armor as a Level 50 Guardian, and I'm gosh darn tired how pathetic this issue is becoming. If you're not going to do a Hood toggle, then put hoods on all hoodless NPCs. Nuff said.

I feel the same way. It's almost a year now since release and Bioware have constantly used hood down armor models in their marketing.

In the live stream they stated it's was one of things which should have easier to implement but is more difficult than than they though and the part of research into it led to companion color matching etc. It did come across as they are researching how to implement it.

How easy it is to do could depends on various factors but Twileks were mentioned as their lekkus remove the hood so they have address those issues at the same time.

Like many I really want it in game and believe it should been there from day 1.

FREEDOM!!!!! The Destroyer set in the new Cartel packs has this as an option. It's not legacy bound, but it is a level 31 item, it's got mods, and it binds on equip. The whole set costs 1200 cartel coins, which isn't too bad. I'm only wearing the chest. The gloves are just a set of grooper glovces I had, Republic Officer's pants, Rakghoul even boots and that's about it. The character was transfered to the PTS a LONG time go, so his gear sorta sucks, but at least now he has a hood-down robe. Hoozah!!!!!

And for those who also wonder: 375 coins for a race.

So is there any doubt about the delay being a play for $$ all along?

Pretty sad.

Freedom? This thing is freakin' purple and the armor has yellow patterns. Jedi should not wear this. I would not wear this even if paid to do so!

And the level is WAY TOO HIGH. I want to enjoy my Jedi head and armor when I am leveling and watching cutscenes.
Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Don't let your artists' work go to waste, Bioware

It's level 31, which is fairly even with when we get non-robe looking armor anyway. I may be pissed that I have to buy it, sure, but just seeing my characters hair for the first time since wearing a trooper chest was enough to leave me dancing. It's a bandaid for a gunshot wound, but it's still a band-aid.
