No matter how you cut it, they really really missed the boat by not just giving us an appearance tab. Mod slots etc being so intimately tied to gear appearance is going to be a never-ending headache for them.

to be fair... as awesome as that was...

i dont want a painting

(Actually I do... I want trophies and to decorate my ship like in SWG or EQ2)

It's important to note the last bit about new armor sets having long lead times (meaning it may take a bit before you notice a change in direction), but we've definitely heard player feedback on this!
Any easy and very quick solution is to offer more of the lower level armour as Orange that doesn't require you to get very very lucky on a loot roll. Take medium boots to get knee high boots you have almost no chance unless you grind a boss mob and even then its open on a loot table. Put such things in as comms for places like Balmora (which has only junk) or other low end worlds that just offer the same chest armour set as the armour vendor. This would be at least a stop gap till new armour sets that don't look so crazy come in.

THIS.

Here is what I don't get. In the 6 movies, the Clone Wars animated series, the book art, the comics, etc, they have dozens upon dozens of visual styles to choose from.

I could name 10 distinct Jedi Masters from the Clone War era, and if you look at pictures of them, NONE of their outfits look alike, AND they all wear robes or variations of said robes!

How hard can this really be? You would think that with all the pieces of this IP, going back to 1977, the developers could find some iconic looks to work with, rather than creating looks that don't even remotely resemble the franchise!

Anakin Skywalker - http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...-Skywalker.jpg
Obi-Wan Kenobi - http://images.wikia.com/starwarsrepu...4c/Obi-Wan.jpg
Ashoka Tano - http://images.wikia.com/swfanon/imag...clone_wars.jpg
Yoda - http://images.wikia.com/starwars/ima...Yoda-SWM80.jpg

Ki-Adi Mundi - http://images.wikia.com/theclonewiki...ster_Mundi.jpg

There you have 11 distinct looks. And I didn't even get into the variations that exist for characters like Anakin and Obi-Wan between "The Clone Wars" animated seires and Episode II/III - and yet, none of these looks, or even variations of these looks, exist in SWTOR. Granted, SWTOR is 3000 years before the Clone Wars, but still, they could have made some decent variations, instead of going with the high fantasy stuff they did for the 1.2 roll out.
Look, we got four or five of the main characters on this ship. I think we're gonna be okay.

I would be happy if they added a suit simular to sephiroths from FF7 he had that one shoulder pad and the entire outfit was so sith like. i also think some of the jedi robes I have look good but for those of us becoming a dark jedi we should at least get darker colors to reflect that internal struggle between being good and evil.

I found some looks they should really have a look at.

Really go to divian art not a plug. some folks on their have amazing art work and you could mimick or re-create some of these armors would be amazing.

No idea how far ahead they have this stuff lined up for though.
They said the art and story team had a huge lead over the rest of the development teams, so I'm fully expecting less over-the-top armor for 1.3's pvp/raid content.

My question is this:

Is BW hearing us lound and clear regarding visual issues regarding armor? Specifically, I'm referring to robes on body type 2 (and maybe 1 as well I think) as referenced in the thread below:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=43334

Any BW response would be appreciated by the JK community I think...
