I COMPLETELY AGREE with the poster here! I too have OCD and have already leveled so high that i dont want to start over with the same character and class just to change my Rattataki's face! PLEASE RESPOND with your plans to implement this feature Devs! I mean, WoW has a service to change your characters appearance...and I wouldnt mind being charged for it. Also, people grow beards, then shave them...add or remove piercings (Rattataki), change hair styles...I dont think i will renew my membership until something like this is added. Yes, I am THAT OCD . Thank you.

Let's keep bumping this thread to get the Dev's attention! I'm willing to fight for this option because I'm enjoying the game so much! But I need to change the face or I wont be able to stand playing much further!

I fiddle for hours at the initial character creation screen. Making the character, with the right name, tied to the class and side... I just lovvve the process of the appearance adjustment. I think there are good options to try and make a character you truly like. (There could always be more, but I am realistic and understand that not everyone will be pleased 100% of the time with the selections given.)

I would love for there to be some functionality added to allow for post-creation/leveling modification/adjustment. Even if it costs credits or special tokens via a new storyline quest, etc.

It isn't a dealbreaker for me, as I think the initial creation and ability to enter game and then delete/re-make is easy enough... I love that there are options for our companions for customizations, just wish the screen was adjustable to actually SEE what it looks like a bit better. (The Character sheet is not zoomable, so if you get a circlet helm or try on various customizations to your companions it's a bit of a hit or miss to see what it truly looks like.)

I also agree on the eyebrow thing. I'm a redhead in real life, and I definitely don't have brown-black eyebrows. Most of my characters have redhair (if they have hair at all), but I wanted to try the white/silvery hair option until I saw that the eyebrows didn't change with the hair color. Ah well.

Far more interesting way to do it would be having your appearance affected over time.

If your fighting a lot your hairs gonna get mess, makeup will wear out so you go to a shop and pay to have it 'repaired'
Call it a clothes shop or something and allow people to change their looks on the fly.

Female characters wanting to change their makeup or cyborgs changing implants is a no-brainer for something that would change... especially if new models and looks are brought in which go further with enhancing the graphics of the game.

Should be blatantly obvious cosmetic appearance is one of the greatest markets in the world... Bioware's inability to catch on to this by providing cosmetic variety that people WOULD pay into money sinks for is beyond stupid.

Agreed...BIG TIME!

I'd like to see a "Barber Shop" where I can do minor adjustments to my character.

Have a "Plastic Surgeon" available someplace where you can do major changes.

Some sort of back-alley shady character who allows you to "change your identity"... IOW rename your character!

My first 2 characters I created, I'm just so unhappy with them. I've rolled others since, but I just don't want to roll another Scoundrel or Sentinel when I've already reached pretty high levels.

Anyone ever get a response from someone official about this type of stuff? A "legacy perk" option would be awesome with this option...

Obviously its possible, since there is a mission on Coruscant where you are stopping criminals from getting surgery to stop looking like their Wanted posters.

I'm sure they're working on this and if they aren't I hope they do.

I never actually thought I'd care so much about how my toons look but I really do. I'm looking forward to piercings and tattoos mostly.

I'm in huge support of this as well!!
Cosmetics plays a huge part in my game play. I hate having to look like everyone else.
I am a Galaxies player and just loved the way they let us be able to change the way we look by just going to an entertainer and telling them what we wanted. And also the endless cosmetics clothing/armor that were on offer.

I would also love to see more options to hide cosmetic items not just the head slot. For example let us be able to show or hide belts, gloves, shoes...etc

And give us more colour options not just 'unifying to the colour of the chest piece'. And if need be allow players be able to create colour kits and sell them or make it a cartel item or a legacy perk.

I do hope one day we will see these options come into SWTOR. This game has sooo much potential.
