    Default New old or who cares about appearance

    Alternate appearance... yeah that was tops on my list of game needs... frankly I'd like to see alternate appearances go away.

    From Holly “Windstalker” Longdale:
    We discuss the issues around having two sets of models often on the team. We’d all like to get the options down to one set of models, either the main or the Alternate Appearance (which I and others call SOGA). It would be better overall in terms of being able to create assets, animations and so forth as doing them for all races over two model types is an insane amount of work.

    We have also discussed doing a whole new set and abandoning the old ones. Also, in terms of all the armor, animations, etc. also many months of work for several artists rather than creating new assets for armor, etc. in game.
    But we don’t want to make changes for the sake of them and we’re not sure there’s any way to do this without a negative impact. Some people love their SOGA models, some people love their original models. We can’t disable one without upsetting those who enjoy the other.

    We may put it to a vote to the players pretty soon though. Might as well ask so we’re not making assumptions that half the players prefer one or the other appearance.
    But we don’t want to make changes for the sake of them and we’re not sure there’s any way to do this without a negative impact.
    This part is laughable since it doesn't appear they make any decisions with the thought that it might negatively impact the player base.

    If they cut it down to one appearance, they damn well better get rid of soga.

    I wonder if there will be an in-game poll about it.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    I swear they look for things to piss people off.
    Both appearances have been in the game for so long now touching either one would be shooting themselves in the foot once again. Some people like the soga, others the original and if they go with the 3rd option they have the chance everybody will hate them.

    I actually quit EQ1 when they changed my nimble woodelf assassin to look like some steroid pumped football linebacker.

    People have a real attachment to how they look.... don't fuck with it $oE .

    If they come up with a 3rd appearance type, they should simply give folks the OPTION of using it or any one individually like they do today with Original/SOGA. I agree with Kizee...don't mess with it.

    Just let people choose their display model, the one everyone else sees instead of people choosing how to view others, sorted.

    Assuming that's possible, I know sweet FA about programming and shit

    Though really I don't care about appearances, even less so with SoEmote coming

    Another model would be great, but give people an option to keep using the old ones. Considering the way things have been going recently, if they go for forcing new models it will be some half-assed attempt that everyone will hate. The new models would need to be really good to convince most people to change over.
