I believe that his relative unattractive-ness is part of his charm. He's not a typical male romance option in the game. He's not conventionally handsome and he's pretty much a jerk to the Trooper from the get go. But for female Troopers who choose to romance him, he grows on them. The more they progress his story and find out about him, the better he starts to look. I can't imagine using a modded look for Jorgan on my female Trooper. From jerk to husband he's always had one look and I want it back.

It would be nice to know if this is a bug or if this was a deliberate change. I'm hoping it's a bug and think it's likely cuz he doesn't match his icon anymore.

This is indeed a bug and not an intended change. There was a data error that I mistakenly introduced back when we were working on putting Cathar in. It's the reason the Cathar color 1 is broken as well. We fixed it prior to release of course, but unfortunately, stomping out data errors like these can be particularly hard to remove when in such a parallel development environment like ours. All it took was missing one place, and eventually, the error crept back in with this latest patch.

So, I'd like to apologize for Jorgan's untimely sickness. I will work my magic and heal him and other poor sick Cathar for 2.2.2.

I'm not 100% convinced that the actual face shape is different. Color and shading can make drastic differences very easily. (Ever see someone with really great skull makeup on, for instance?)

However, I decided to do a little comparing. It seems all the fur colors are off, not just the original standard Jorgan. The under-eye area is also way too dark for some reason, regardless of customization.

I didn't have screenshots of the old/non-bugged looks, so I snagged this one off a fan site:
Jorgan's customizations as he looked before.
My own screenshot of Jorgan's standard/normal face.
My own screenshot of customization 2.

Now, here's how some of those look in-game today:
Regular Jorgan, no customization: Close up and on fleet.
Blue Jorgan, customization 4: Close up and on fleet.
Spotty Jorgan, customization 2: On fleet (could not get a good close up.. no ship yet on this one).

So... if you compare the jaw angle and some of the oblique portrait shots, ignoring the color, it looks like his head might still be still shaped correctly. However, the color and shading, even with customizations on is undeniably very, very wrong. Also, if you look at the jawline, he has some very strange lumpiness going on -- I think that's probably supposed to be ruffled fur, but it was not there before (except, perhaps, in customization 3).


EDIT: I see that we have a BW response now, but I'm still posting this in case the issues with customizations and the jawline fur still being different can help at all.

That's a relief. Thanks so much for letting us know and for working on the fix!

Horray! Thank you! My FemTrooper will just close the door to the weapons locker and lock it until 2.2.2. Because, you know, he might be a Skrull or something. Can't be too safe.

Can you please clarify whether this fix is simply changing his fur color (as with players' Cathar fur color 1), or are you actually bringing back his original appearance with the original model?
