Have you ever wanted to use the Skyshadow's vampire face on its own? Or wanted to use the demon face without the hell's point hairdo?

So how about adding a face slot for these types of cosmetics?

Face customisations were mentioned as a Player modle rework as part of the survey options for 2017!^_^

Would this be easier?

Some time ago I suggested a face slot, it went as follows:

Have you ever wanted to use the Skyshadow's vampire face on its own? Or wanted to use the demon face without the hell's point hairdo?

So how about adding a face slot for these types of cosmetics?


Technical difficulties must be the reason that it has not been added, As I thought I heard they would give it another try, It even garnered some support over time. So I have an alterative method to approach the same problem. A simpler method than a cut/paste for just a face, Not asking for a whole body design, or for racial characteristics/chanages, this is just a work around for the face problem, for the time being. Here goes...

Would it be easier to swap out the whole body, (or full reskin) rather that just a face?


Thinking on it, something like that might work for disguises, quest related and such, where needed instead of outfits.


Comments, ideas and feedback welcome!

After I posted this I saw some rage bout having to wear the hood to get the face for Skyshadow. So people out there must have a comment or 2 on this idea lol?

Perhaps make it a whole skin slot instead, for different skin models, like we have the green skin one ;). Warlord bodypaint, scar marks, mahjarrat-pattern bodypaint [would be excellent for roleplayers], skeletal bodypaint, etc. Roawr.

I would have to agree with Dark Dragon, this could easily be added to skins, and perhaps a few extra ones as well. Also I think I read somewhere that they were looking into adding more skins or something along those lines.

I like this idea. It could include ears, tatoos, etc., so you could really look like a different race, etc. Apparently size is a factor, but other features shouldn't be a problem.

With face cosmetics I think they are currently part of the helmet and sit over the avatar's face hiding it, that is a guess by the way. Trying to separate the front of a helmet to use it for the face and the rest for a helmet would be a cumbersome way to go forward, when it's the base avatar's face that should be the target.

Or a transparent mask that sits just over the face but under helmets then everything is added to that?

Obviously I don't know enough about the ways they have thought of so far or how they would go about it, but I am good at thinking up workarounds if I know what the problem is in layman's term, I've done it a few times already:P
