While you are at it, please look into the colors for the revan chest, as someone mentioned earlier, it is far, far too light. It should be a real black color, you know, like the phantom set.

Now the lower robes look much darker than the chest piece. Please fix this by 2.0~~~ Revan set should be something iconic and legendary, not riddled with these various issues that seemingly linger around indefinitely.

This other Cartel set, Investigators set also has two hoods as well. Nor does it cape Revan style cape. And while I'm here can we get a reskin black deep purple of the Phantoms/Revan style chest piece? Thx

I actually like the current color. However I definitely would like the multiple hood taken away, along with the "shoulder rolls"

I don't think I'd care for a cape either, as that would clip with everything.

Just my opinion.

Obviously, that's a bug, so having it fixed would be great. However, I might also suggest adding a cape to the chest, since we all know that Revan in KotOR wore a cape, and capes just make everything better. And... still not sure how I feel about those "shoulder-roll" things. Maybe it would look better with the cape, though?
The shoulder rolls as you put it are a ridiculous addition. They need to remove it. fix the color as well, to a darker black, add the cape in addition to getting rid of the second hood.

This is true During the time when he wore this mask it had a cape that is mainly why it looks so epic where as what we have been given is an incomplete edition of the outfit

The set will be ruined with a cape. Capes in this games mechanics are horrible. You want a cape on it to go flapping out of the throne and meditation chair?


Reason why Bioware DIDNT PUT A CAPE IN 1.0, Clipping errors would just suck. Thats why I love the set. NO Jedi back butt flaps, No clipping failure cape. IF they add a cape, it better damn well be a entirely different chestpeice or else it will be the classic and normal cartel item set fiasco all over again.

However, the bug fixes of the darker robes and the two hoods and the lower robe brown yes.

What I can't understand is the hood bug. Why is this taking so long to fix?

if they made a new revan gear set to match the KOTOR version they could always call it "Darth Revan's..." that would solve it i think. and i would like the cape but its unfortunate theres so many issues with it. tho its wat u expect when u make move so realistically lol

Look at my thread making history. I have suggested and reported all 5 of Revan's set bugs since December 20th. To prevent necroing I tried hard to keep people noticing this annoying eyesore of a bug.

1. Helm still clips with body type 3 male
2. Revan's Chestplate, Investigator's Robe, and the Pathfinder Chestpeice all have 2 sets of hoods.
3. Chestplate became Light Grey in 1.6.1 look at my sig thread for the pictures, too lazy to link them.
4. Revan's Lower robe while graphically fixed in 1.6.2 became brown on default.
5. No Classic Revan's Chestplate using the Maelstrom Prison Revan was used, or the Classic Revan's Robes using the old passed off set version.

However, I wouldn't be suprised if they made a DARTH REVAN'S Chest / Leggs to look like the KOTOR Revan so people can enjoy the mesh clippings of a opened robe and cape. I have a PC Revan Kotor Mod and despite how nice it looks, it is horrified with clipping errors. and I think the current version gives it justice.
