    About that issue with clipping and chairs, due to differing racial sizes:

    Through years of study, research, and innovation, Protostar has solved the three major problems of chairs--finding one large enough for your behind, strong enough to support you, and comfortable enough to suit your physiology--in one fell swoop. Introducing:

    Protostar Anti-Gravity "Sitting" Field!

    This personal anti-gravity field generator--no smaller than most human-sized fanny-packs--can be deployed on any surface or seat, producing a field that allows you to sit wherever you want, however you want, with maximum comfort.

    (Visual effect: Characters have a specific "race" sitting position--Aurin sit cross legged with their tails coiled underneath them like a snake charmer, Granok sit on invisible LZ-Boys--and hover a few feet above chairs, with the "Sitting" field deployed on the chair or surface.)

    It's pretty sad that we can't interact with chairs :(
    I would not be as sad if I could do /sit on top of a chair, and it worked if I adjusted myself properly.

    How are we supposed to drink a beer in a Nexus bar? Sad story.
    Hope Protostar will find a solution.

    I'm pretty sure Aurin and humans are strong enough to lift Granok beer mugs. Failing that, we always have the "BTN" (Better Than Nothing) size cans.

    Brilliant post, I think it could actually be implemented into the game one day. :p

    Have they ever officially confirmed that there will be chairs in the game though?

    Perhaps their society has evolved so much that chairs have become a completely obsolete concept! :roflamo:

    Patrician and all Patrician subsidiaries wholeheartedly support this project! *stamps with seal of approval*

    All seals are made with synthetic seal materials and no actual baby seals were harmed in the making of these stamps.

    No sitting makes me a sad Bee indeed. BUT they could always throw in a "sit" emote like they did in City of Heroes and trust the players to just use it when appropriate :D

    Yeah, when a Granok sits around the house... He REALLY sits AROUND the house.

    I think the anti gravity device should generate the chair and visually displays a unique chair for each character, like you suggested. Unless that is what you're saying. When I read your post it sounded like you'd have a chair under you still.

    There would still be a chair. This solution prevents character models from sinking into the seats.

    Actually I kinda like Mouseknuckle's idea. You type /e sit (or whatever the emote command is) and a holographic chair appears for you to lounge in. perfectly sized for your character. No fussing with in game chairs that may not fit a bulky granok or tiny aurin

    The whole "no sitting in chairs" is the one thing that has disappointed me about this game. Having chairs and couches in the player housing is going to frustrate me. I like your idea but I'd like the solution to be sitting in chairs like they have in wow. I wouldn't mind some minor clipping. But failing that holo chairs sounds good.
    Idea: instead of sitting on a holo cushion what about a regular one? The granok or whatever pulls a pillow out from hammer space and sits on that on the chair/couch to prevent clipping.
