Which it is.

They also recolored the gloves/boots/legs for either the conservators set or the classic conservators set - can't keep my memory straight about which is which.
No, it's not! Compare to of them side by side... The only same thing are the boots. Gloves and pants are much slimmer an there is no belt around the waist.
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

Did anyone on the design team actually watch Star Wars ?
I also find it funny that the developers didn't even know they wanted a hood down option until they shipped the game and the players asked for it.

Like hood toggle was in works for over a year now. They were working on it before the release, according to them.

Seems it's on the back burner for a bit :\

So far back, it fell off the stove, onto the floor, through the floor and the next 4 floors down, only to land in someone's bathtub while they were taking a shower.

OP,

No, I don't think we do.

Mainly because a hood up/down animation... Is unfeasible I mean a completely new animation that changes the skin of a model to another... It is'nt worth the development time, as a QoL feature.. I don't honestly believe the dev team are anywhere near even having it working, or progressed it from the planning stage.

Just release some altered robe models (hood down) for the main few types: Indignation, Battle Expulsor, Vindicator, Battlelord etc.. And be done with it, that or release some new models with a hood up/down variants.

The day we get the hood up/down toggle, fully animated that does'nt just clip off the hood but lowers it to the back of the robe.. I will eat my hat.. Scratch that, hood - because it beats having it up all the time.

I believe all of us would be totally satisfied with the hood up graphic just switching, within a blink of an eye, into unhooded form. they are able to remove those detals and switch them around for armor. The hoods are totally separate pieces. They can create a feature to allow players actually switch around thos details.

This. That's all players really want when it comes to hood toggle. I mean no one complains (yet) that when they remove their characters boots the character doesn't sit down and undo their laces.

Wood making a hood a "helmet" solve this problem the fastest? Basically you then can toggle to view helmet or not, which would be the hood. You could augment it all the same, etc etc.

The only problem with this idea is of course, you wouldn't be able to wear any masks or eye ware. But it would be an easy fix/solution to the problem.

The benefit would be that it would probably be the fastest way to implement this, as well as give non-hooded robes in game the option to now have a hood! (because the hood would be a helmet slot)
