    I don't consider these options to be part of the CC per say but, I am very glad that the options are in.

    I thought we were talking about physical aspects of each character.

    Character creator is for me physical appearance, gender and naming and server selection, while the whole appearance itemization is a total different feature. Character creator may have an option to select different shades of underwear (summer slimwear, winter long underwear, grandma cotton - the last fitting the most with a western theme, btw;)), but that is all I expect it to go into the worn appearance.

    It -would- be nice to be able to actually choose our starting newbie equipment actually. The looks if nothing else...

    I just want to make my character look even a little bit different, make him something special, these toons are what represent ourselves and (hopefully) we all aren't cookie cutter in real life haha

    I was so disappointed in Tera when I realized that the three outfits you got to choose from during character creation were only so you could see the way models effected your hair.:cautious:

    GW2 is cool... It lets you customize your look with dyes at the beginning.

    I was imagining a CoH-style customisation system at creation - the looks of which get bound to your starter gear. This way it could be used as your "look" (using the appearance slots) from 1 to 60 if you wish.

    I was just thinking that if I play an Aurin, I would like the ability to pull my ears back over my head and tie them like a ponytail or gather them up top in a topknot ala Usagi Yojimbo from the old Ninja Turtles cartoon. Particularly if he was some type of a melee character.

    I like it. We know that there will be different types of ears for Aurin... It would be really cool to be able to change them kinda like having a hair style.

    I honestly will be a bit surprised if that is not an option. From everything I have seen so far from Carbine, they just seem like the type of developer who would put something like that into place either at launch or in an early patch. What most developers fail to realize (and why so many hold CoH/CO creators as the benchmark) is that many people like to have little options for their characters. Even if they do not roleplay their character, most people want to have a character they enjoy looking at. Little options like that go a long way toward player happiness and the happier a player is, the longer they play the game.

    I like changing armor throughout leveling.... It's a visual reminder of progress. Dyes are great (as long as they are affordable) to keep yourself from looking like a clown.

    End Game is where I really get interested in my appearance. I will spend hours researching gear just so I can make a plan on how to achieve the look I want. It's kinda like a reward for doing the level grind.

    Thats the beauty of WS "comic-style" overall look of the game, everything is possible. Many games try to aproach this realistic like world and thus are limited in their creations, while WS can look almost like anything you want and still fit in.

    I cant wait to see what all races and factions look like, but im sure everyone will get something they hope for ;)

    That and the genre (sci-fi) itself gives Carbine a huge slate to draw on. I totally agree.

    I know people got off this topic but . . .
    We need to lock the options we should have down!
    1.) Briefs or boxers toggle
    2.) Size slider
    3.) Hang slider (left to right)

    But as it was stated, most people will push that size slider to max all the time ;)
