Kotor II robes with and w/out hoods.

I just liked the fact that the robes looked more with the ones we see the Jedi looking everywhere. Another nice addition was the effects it had when we run.

Definitely KotOR II robes, with the addition of optional hoods. A few new robes wouldn't hurt either.

TSL robes optional hood up or down based on how you feel today... also that you can put away the hardware in your hands... even Han Solo liked ramming his blaster into his holster once in a while....

hehe Yeah I'd actually love that little addition. As long as you can still twiddle your lightsaber when on boring runs though.

TSL robes as long as they loosen them up a bit. I mean the Jedi robes are supposed to be long flowing robes, but the TSL robes, while a very good improvement over the KOTOR I "robes," still had their flaws. Also with optional hood and the option to take off the robe and just wear the tunic like in the movies.

...anything but that StarForge dress.

Would absolutely love to have some hooded options.
(perhaps even have some kind of stealth bonus with the hoods up)

I would just like to see the robes behave better in motion.
I don't recall Qui-gon's or Obi's robes clinnging to thier legs when they ran.

I want robes that don't look like they weight 500 lbs. Hoods would also be nice.

Well everyone seems to agree that hoods are ideal... but I think they should add a different category to your equips.

Armor = Jedi Robes (the stuff they wear under cloaks), suits, various armors

and then a new category called Cloaks or something

Cloaks = Jedi Cloaks (which include optional hoods), capes, other flowing things

Of course cloaks wont do much for extra bonuses, they are just there to look cool. But this way, not just the jedis get the benefit of looking cool with cloaks and capes.


Perhaps this may be more difficult to pixelate, for instance making the capes drape over each individual's shape (including armor shapes), instead of just making a generic shape and shrinking/enlarging it.

but its not impossible, and if KOTOR 3 wants to focus on improving the old system, then this is a good place to start.

With cloaks we won't be able to see any supposed helmet, masks or those aural things

Oh well, I'm willing to sacrifice that!

Robes with hoods that can be put up or down, yes.

Now for customizable lightsaber hilts...

I actually considered that.

I was thinking of something along the lines of not being able to put hoods up, if you are wearing a headgear that will be too much of a design problem. Like helmets with things sticking out of them or what not. Since masks technically pertain to the front of the face, hoods should still be able to go on top of the head without much effort. (graphically that is)

For instance,

Revan's mask would still be able to have a hood put over it. So the option remains available

While something like Fett's helmet, which has pieces sticking out from the top, would disable the hood function



nooww if only someone from the future design team will be smart enough to consider it.....

Quite simple,
Hood- Basic
THere is simply a function command such as the d-pad which yo press to open up mini menus to select basic appearance toggling functions.
You can wear your hood up/down, robes open, or close(tied)
ALSO
Weapons redying,
A button scheme to redi(take out, activate) put away, change weapons(holster art also changes to format the appearance of that weapon), different holster/strap placements.
Using clothing ends as holster/concealment placements. That is what my idea is.
ALSO
CLothing, shields, arnour...
Like morrowind, section by section, plenty of variety, different benefit mixtures and only ultimate possesions are special ones that are as rounded as character tailoring.
That's all for now

Hmmm, should hoods have any other special function than looking cool? I mean, you could, I dunno, add +1 Stealth when wearing a hood, people won't recognize you, this kind of stuff.

Who cares? The devs will naturally improve all these gameplay features and the like anyway, so thereís nothing to worry about, and say if there isnít hooded robes in KotOR III, so what? Big fooken deal! Iíd take a strong, intriguing plot and characters over enhanced gameplay and extra features any day.

I'd like to option for either in K3. I like the ones in TSL a lot but sometimes I just feel like using the K1 robes. They're more unique.

I agree: the TSL robes were cool, but awfully generic in most cases. If KotOR III had something like a cloaked version of the KotOR robes (with more than four variations), that would be great. Hoods aren't necessary, but are a welcome addition.

Perception of replication, adding autentication of original conception.

Hoods, holsters, packs and more realistically displayed appearance in general.
Point desired, to really feel like you're there' learning in the context which inspired your perception of greater being.
Unnatural? Might as well bring down theatrics, expression and human emotion while you're at it.
Which you will be as that is what the left side of the brain does; criticize.
Whereas the right side of the brain converges and expresses.


My Idea according to most "correct" consideration.

Clothing:
Shirt
Sash
Overthrow
Pants

Robes: Jedi
Padawan robe
Apprentice robe
Jedi Robe
Jedi Knight robe
Jedi Master robe

Robes: Dark Jedi
Dark apprentice robe
Sith robe
Sith master robe

The sith are of the distinction of either freelance or accorded with an "Associate" or a slew of them.
Rank dictates apprentice title is for one or more students under direct plot with a master(sith master robe)
Freelancers or distinguished agents wear(sith robes).

And forget not the;
Baran Do: Novice, Apprentice, Disciple, Sage

Norris

Matukai Novice, Apprentice, Adept, Master

Ossuss Novice, Apprentice, Healer, Keeper

Jal shey Novice, apprentice, Warrior, Master

Zeison sha Novice, apprentice, Guardian, Master

They count to... Not to mention meeting some actively in their respective roles would be great lore material for the game. If applicable ofcourse. I'd like to see some life there.

I'd like to see some unique clothing. Unique Jedi and Sith robes.

For example, Bastila's normal clothes (that looked like Jedi robes). Those were great.
Or Revan's black robe.

Important characters should have unique clothing.

That may be to steriotypically sensitive to focus on at a conceptual level.
First allow the main focus of apparel diversity to emerge then assign definition for best results.

Even though I understand only have of what you're saying , I didn't mean that I want to see everyone dressed in an unique way. But importang guys (villains for example) should not dress like their subordinates.

Btw, every NPC in KOtor I and II has individual clothes...

Of course you would, but the thread isn't asking whether we'd prefer plot to robes. It's asking which robes we'd prefer.

There's no reason why we can't have both, a good story and decent apparel.

True. The KOTOR robes looked ok on female characters, but my male hero looked like a carrot in any Jedi robe...

the Revan Star Forge robes needed a hood and the Light Side Star Forge robes looked like something Princess Leia would wear...

More realistic movement of clothing would be there anyway, I hope, as the technology to code it gets better... like the change from KOTOR I to TSL.

Hooded jedi robes/leathers allowing for some sort of wicked armor underneath.....oh, and a fashionable sash upon which to hook my lightsaber; I'm getting tired of jedi running around with their lightsabers hanging out in hand....looks like a demented relay race.

I know its a bit late in the day to change the galaxies dress sense, but it would be cool to have some of the more grandiose robes from the tales of the jedi comics.
