Dunno how relevant this might be, but I really wish there was an option to put the hood down manually without having to wear some ridiculous looking hat. Also dont know if this is the right channel for it, but I feel it should be addressed somehow

The correct forum for this would be the Suggestion Box.

There is a strong possibility that we will get that option some time next year as part of the upcoming technical and UI improvements for the yearlong anniversary celebration. Charles Boyd, the Creative Director for the game, hinted at something like this during the last livestream for the upcoming expansion.

Notice Charles Boyd saying that they will have "stuff happening under the hood" together with his coy smile and beard stroke.

This is no confirmation, of course, but considering that a hood down option is one of the most requested tech modernization items for the game, I think it is safe to say that this is exactly what he meant while avoiding anything concrete.

It's been asked for since the launch of the game so maybe?

On another note the "under the hood" thing they were referring to was more tweaks to optimize the games engine so a lot of current issues including lag are reduced. The engine itself is in very bad shape considering how it was rushed under "beta" [if you want to call it that] release (not the game itself but the engine was NOT ready) when the game launched. lol

Spoiler


Sorry for carrying on. Let's wish for better QoL stuff either way. I'm sure more will come if the optimizations work better then they did in the past.

Your point was very insightful and I will consider many options.

Thought of this myself.. I love the robes out in the wild (as I don't see that hair is missing in hood from those angles), but when having a cut-scene, I'd like it to be with hood down.

I just want them to fix the graphics clipping of hoods and helmets.

I agree with this request every time I see it. We know it's there, since there are races that can't wear them. Just give us a checkbox that allows us to act like our character is a Togruta, Kuubaz, Trandoshan, etc. Call it "Hood Down" if you like, but the tech is already there.
