The removal of those heads is the primary reason for the appearance overhaul. I understand some people may like them (though personally I can't stand them) but they are completely out of keeping with the style of the other heads/races on the server and, perhaps more critically, are badly bugged.

But, it's always better to add options rather than remove them, hence looking for nice new heads to go in for a net gain.

An appearance changer is something for another thread, the staff have historically been rather unhappy with the way most of the Vault based offerings work. Given the potential for exploitation and hilarious bugs and memory leaks such unhappiness is warranted.

Revamping the current crafting system is one of our objectives for the restart though, and expanding the item customization capabilities of that would be the most obvious solution. But, it's another can of worms and not something that'll be covered by my aim here of adding cool looking shit.

Ok, I am firmly in support of the botox elves and humans, because sadly it's the only thing that looks reasonably decent. Elves are otherwise *hideous* in the game, and the botox faces are still better than the anime faces. I am very excited about this.... I think having some better options will be a draw for some folks... does this mean that an appearance changer option is also being considered?

Depends on what you mean by appearance changer.

If you mean enabling people to change heads or haircuts, then no. There are no plans to implement that kind of thing, although you can consult with a dm about hair changes if need be as we have the power to do that kind of .bic change.

If you mean can I change the appearance of my clothing/armour, then I'll just direct you to my previous post. A better crafting system for creating and modifying cool shit is preferable to a system that, for instance, allows full plate helms to be changed to spectacles and heavy armour to look like lingerie.

As I was saying earlier, there's at least a couple of servers out there that has an item costumization do-hickey that goes around that. You cycle through accepted appearances for you current item, and click it. Bracers, gauntlets, torso everything is set. Players can make their own appearance in the toolset for DMs to incorporate into the appearance crafter thingamajig.

I've tried to search a bit for some elven heads on the vault.

There's the npcs from the OC: http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn2/hakpak/original-hakpak/playable-npc-heads.

They've got fixed heads and skin tint, but if you're looking for more options...

There's a small package of female elven heads here: http://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn2/hakpak/original-hakpak/elf-heads-miss-o

They look kinda neat.

I can't be exactly sure if we have these in place? http://neverwintervault.org/project/...air-combo-pack

Is that the botox ones mentioned before?

This... this I'm kinda unsure about: http://neverwintervault.org/project/...-facelift-pack

They look really cool. But... maybe they are too pretty? (too pretty for an elf? I must be getting old) They're supposed to be touch-ups on the standard ones, but maybe they could go along together?

I like this pack, seen it on other servers and it's one of the few face packs I really like.

I am going to do the dark chants here, and revive a necro-thread. Is this still in the works? Because I sincerely hope so.
