A second weapon flourish. Also I'm sure the RP crowd would like a force trick, complete with cloud over the targets head. And as for rest and recharge it would be cool to have battle meditation for light or command the force for dark. With swirling blue or red force clouds.

I definitely would like to see these in-game!

/map positions - Bit like the terminal, only for use on desks / holo maps - http://i.imgur.com/tSCHOxy.gif
In addition, I've heard many roleplayers yearning for what I would call stances. More or less static poses and not just a short animation. Countless NPCs can be found throughout the game wearing these stances, so it'd be wonderful to see player characters able to use them as well.

These include

Incredibly wanted /meditate

A current problem with mood and "stance" (/chair, /kneel, /dance, etc.) emotes is that if you have one toggled on, and another player arrives at the location that you are at after you've already toggled it, on their screens, it just appears that you are standing with a blank expression on your face.

Would make RP encounters much more immersive when you can walk into a room, and everyone would already be sitting, without you having to say "((Can you guys /sit again please? Can't see it on my screen.))"

This is an amazing post and I agree completely. Seeing these 'stances' in-game usable by NPCs but not available to players is hugely frustrating, and it would add so much to my time playing TOR if they were available - and I know I am not the only one who thinks so. It would mean TOR would really stand out in the MMORPG genre as well for giving general customisation to player stances and expressions whilst interacting with the world. I know it's something I miss dearly from SWG.

I really like what most of the people's suggestions so I upvote for those but I also have these to add and re-write:

[ONE TIME ONLY]
  • /flirt2 - Proper flirt animation. Especially for females that doesn't look like a h o o k e r who is trying to get some junk into her panties to finish the night. Male one is ridiculous but not worse as females, at least.

  • /blush2 - Proper blush animation. Especially -AGAIN- for females that doesn't look like a five years old little boy imitating of /the imitating of blushing of over-reacting hollywood movie chick/. And I'm pretty sure a 5 years old would be smart enough to realize that is nothing like real world blushing either. Male blush animation is just adorable, apply it to females, done! You don't have to sexualize a female toon when blushing, abandon that "O-MY-GAWD IT HAZ BOOBIEZ I HAZ TO MAKE IT SMEXY" idea. People don't overreact like that when blushing. Seriously, just apply the male-blush animation on females, put on cartel market or whatever, just do it.

  • /giggle - Fix it, make a proper giggle animation. /laugh and /giggle are different actions, let us have the difference in game too.

  • /cackle - Fix it, make a proper crackle animation. /laugh and /crackle are different actions, let us have the difference in game too.

  • /hug2 or /couplehug or /hugfriend - Proper hug animation, that you actually hug someone. I was going to write more explanation about this but then I saw this, which is EXACTLY what I was about to write;
Quote: Originally Posted by Adaliaya View Post
Two-player emotes. Like, if characters Jack wants to kiss character Ada he presses "kiss" emote. Then Ada recives small message in corner of screen "Jack wants to do kiss with you" or simply "Jack wants to kiss you". If character Ada agrees they perform a kiss. Only usable when characters are <4 meters distance, and emote request disappears after 15 seconds if it's not answered. Also ability to decline two-player emotes automatically should be added.
This kind of emotes would be:
Hug
Kiss
Hold in arms (I want my body 1 female to hold body 3 male on her arms)
Hold hand
  • Add /coupledance emote to this, too, but make it CONTINUOUS.


[CONTINUOUS]
various /sit emotes;
  • add Jedi Warrior regeneration animation without the glow. (also can be code as /meditate or /praying)

  • add Mirialan Focusin Ritual animation without the glow. (also can be code as /meditate)

  • add all the NPC sitting positions that is already in game.

  • add NPC crossed legs sith while body bends over, hands over lap animation. Like on Coruscant there is a demon-child NPC with female body 1 bit a little girl face, she walks like that with a quest mark over her head in the Justicar Sector.

  • add sitting at the end of a wall or something, NPC Example.

  • add emotes that comes WITHOUT the chair, since bEAware not fancy giving us actual sit-able chairs, at least let us sit on the actual chairs.

  • /study or /work - an emote that shows you checking things over the desk like you are working/studying.

  • /computer - similar to /study or /work but with virtual keyboard typing.


[CONTINUOUS]
various /meditate and /praying emotes;
  • add Jedi Warrior regeneration animation without the glow.

  • add Mirialan Focusing Ritual animation without the glow.

  • add Jedi Consular regeneration animation without the glow.


[CONTINUOUS]
various /standing and /leaning emotes;

[CONTINUOUS]
various /laydown emotes;
  • /laydown - just laying down emote without additional animation, NPC Example.

  • /sleep - add properly laying down and maybe turning to sides occasionally.

  • /nightmare - similar to /sleep but looking more discomforted with more turns and maybe occasional muttering.

  • /nap - lay down and curl up for a nap (foetus/fetus position).

  • /sick - There is some NPCs around Nar Shaddaa laying down on the bench or on the ground, they roll from side to side holding their stomach or head.

  • /rest - The reclining chair emote without the chair and more laid down version maybe.
Also please fix the texture on the Ship Beds, when we sit we get lost in the texture, it is annoying.


[CONTINUOUS]
various misc emotes;
  • /restless2 or /pace - add Sith Inquisitor regeneration animation without the glow, it is perfect for angrily/nervously-walking-on-your-spot-while-waiting-something-to-happen.

  • /pace2 - Walking on a straight line while making hand gestures like you are explaining something, to your group, to your troops, in a military fashion.

  • /usecomputer or /slice - add the current animation of using computer / typing on keyboard. NPC Example.

  • /datapad - Make the current one as a continuous emote, not a one time.

  • /datapad2 - There is this emote some NPCs does and in some of the cutscenes we do it too. Holding a datapad it looks like a "stock counting" to me. I couldn't find any images for now.

  • /lookingaround - Gault's looking around animation in BH ship.

  • /checking - animation of Aric's in Trooper and/or Talos Drellik's in Sith Inq ship, when they are on board. Or the one we do when we click on a Lore Object.

  • /bored2 - Vette's bored animation on board of Sith Warrior Ship.

  • /backrub - Rubbing your back (not your butt).

  • /pet - Be able to pet pets or other animals.

  • /comlink - Like we get something into our earpiece.

  • /AFK - How about a holo-bubble that says the person is AFK.

  • /repair - There is a kneeled down animation, especially in the Esseles when you pick to check on the conduits instead of spacing the engineers. You click on the shiny object and kneel down and you do something with your hands.

  • /surrender - Animation same with Smuggler "Surrender" skill. It doesn't enter to loop but hands stay on air till player cancels.

  • /surrender2 or /underarrest - On knees while hands gathered behind the head.

  • /dig - At Ord Mantell Mannet Point beach there is a datacron and 2 NPC. One of them is a mob, one of them stands in a /surrender position I just describe up there and the other one digs up some stuff. That's the animation I am pointing here as an emote.

  • /talking - Making gestures like talking and describing something. There is several NPCs around the fleet, for example one at the GTN arena, BT4 female with short black hair, making gestures to an astromech droid on Imperial Fleet.

Oh, if we are gonna get that emote I also want /coolstorydudenowgogetcastrated because I'm pretty sure a "cool story dude now go get castrated" emote would be fun too. We can use it against the in-game harassers/stalkers too!


Anyways, I'll write more if I get any new ideas or might update this post with images.

**Oh, and, screenshots are not mine! Found them on the google.

I think one of the streams with Eric Musco decorating already showed the devs have a /sleep emote. Will try to find the stream and time data and edit my post.

Edit: Found it! http://www.twitch.tv/swtor/c/4691480 around 17:00 he shows it.

I think this is just for use inside of strongholds, but that's still a great addition into the game nonetheless.

Added these to my original post as well.
