Hello,

am I the only one who thinks those cats look ugly as hell and what's even worse, completely not like Star Wars? Those kittens look like mutated Kilrathi from Wing Commander I

Cheers

Sorry to burst any person's bubble, but ANY playable toon is "just re-skinned".

Not sure what the difference is from EVERY OTHER GAME

Collision is no different no matter the skin. Targeting is really no different regardless of skin. Gear is no different regardless skin (with the grand exception of male/female gear skins)

 

So please, how is the introduction of the Cathar really any different than including Blood Elves?

Are trying to imply that blood elves have the same charecter model and animations as Orcs, trolls, Toren, Undead, goblins, humans, dwarfs, worgen, night elves, Drania?....please stop with the insanly wrong WoW comparisons.

For all of WoWs flaws, race diversity is not one of them.

I see your totally +1 and I raise you an absolutely +1

But seriously...I have seen this coming. I would imagine the next race would be Voss since they will also be easy to incorporate.

or Night elves, humans, dwarves or gnomes.

Maybe if they actually put in class specific missions and such to this game they might make some progress on subs. I mean how awesome would it be to do BH missions even on NPC, or a distress signal fron a downed ship that needs rescuing etc. This game has so many basic design flaws that adding new races in small medium or large variety is the last thing this game needs.

Actually that would be even better than just adding some character with facepaint,a wookie is as original as star wars gets,a wookie would be a full body change and they even got their own language.

This^

Of all the races in the Star Wars canon they could have chosen.  They chose Cathar?  Really? Well, just another in a monstrously long list of bad calls made about this game, I guess.

If they want me to pay for it, which it looks like they do, then i would prefer they have 5-10 new races. its star wars for crying out loud. there should be heaps of available races. most already have the skins in game. Mon Calamari, Nautolan, rodians are just 3 that i can name off the top of my head. if not they should have released this with ROTHC like they said they would, instead of the blatant cash grabbing they are doing. over it.

Welcome to Game-recycling. Invented by Blizzard in World of Warcraft. How many models did they actually took over from one expansion to another? Countless...

I've posted so many threads on this back in the days in their forums, how I felt like I was fooled by their developers. I mean it was and is such an obvious source of laziness.

Horrible, if you ask me. No real artist in the world who works with his heart would tolerate such action.

Did you ever see the movies? There were a ton of races in Star Wars that just had different heads..lol.  In regards to the "no real artist who works with his heart" line... I can tell you have never had to make a living off of your art. Things change a lot when it comes to putting food on your families tables.

How many races in WoW have the same charecter models/body types, just with different heads? Whats that you say, none?

Any chance to incorrectly throw WoW under the bus eh....helarious

kthxbye

Hern, so you are saying that at launch Gnomes and Dwarves didn't share same body type/movement? your saying that at blood elf launch they were completely different  from a Night elf re-skin?

please

STO's races are all just reskins

Many other games do exactly this same thing.

All games do it.

To sit there and slam them for doing what all game companies do is just putting on those rose colored glasses

What.. why wow bash? They introduced some fun races of different body types! Goblins! Dreanei? Heck them wolf people..! Pretty decent.  hardly the same as exactly the same body with different face paint.

YES, thats is exactly what I am saying. If you are implying otherwise, you are either blatantly lieing to push your point, or have never played WoW. Why would you stress "at launch"? The charecter models in WoW never changed since launch, none of them. Whats in the game now (model wise) is the exact same thing that has always been there. Are they all different? You bet you @$$ they are.

This is getting out of hand lol

 

Ya, totally the same charecter model...

/sigh

I used WOW as an example as most people would have, at one time or another, played (been familiar with) it.

Now, things like a slight tweek to hieght or width is "not a different body". If that were the case then Cathar ARE a different model. Gnomes and Dwarves MOVED AND ACTED much the same.

Unless you are referring to the "universal 4" body types that SWTOR offers, then YES everything is a "re-skin" That is where my comment about STO and many other games come in. That is also where my comments on Blood Elves and Night elves came in. that is unless you think the tweek of the ears makes them unique. But then again, Blood Elves were a "hit" even though they are "just a re-skin"

In all technicallity the only race that is "truely" different in SWTOR is the Twilek, as it has the head tenticles that jerk around spasmatically many times.

Rift - Beyond a few hieght changes the model waling around is a re-skin as they all use the same basic collision and targeting. Hieght and width make NO difference when getting through tight spaces or hiding from enemies. SO when things are broken down to the basics, EVERYTHING is a just a re-skin of the "prime model"

Since you have obviously seen them move and act and can accurately judge that it is a "re-skined" human (from a static picture), and not a re-skinned Charr I guess I bow to your pre-cognition.

In the article about the Cathar, they flat out said that they were going to be re-doing ALL the Cathar character models in the game to reflect the released race. However this didn't seem to phase anyone, even though MOST of the races in Star Wars are just "re-skinned" humans with different noses and ears. So how is this a problem? especially since they are "keeping true to Star Wars?"

Heck all a Jawa is, is a midget in a robe

Heck all a Wookie is, is a harry  guy - A slight reskin of a Talz...

All MOST RACES ARE, are a re-skin of another one.

 

Heck I can go into a Game like Aion, and recreate just about any race from just about any other MMO thanks to the player controlled slide bar. The only difference between a Gnome and a Dwarf is my sliding the hieght bar down, the nose bar up and get rid of the beard.

Re-Skin

Pathetic as usual from Bioware. They are turning into Cryptic with their lazy half-baked dev work ever since EA bought their soul. I hope Disney shuts them down.
