What do you think they should have in terms of customization with characters in this new game?

In FFXI, we were only able to adjust height and pick from a set of heads, each unique head with 2 different hair colors.

Personally, I think it would be nice to customize characters by choosing your hair color(although nothing crazy that makes the game look unrealistic like light green), choosing height in feet'inches"(cm in metric), weight(so if i want a fat pudgy taru, i can do it), facial features (being able to edit eye color, nose structure, cheek structure, etc., maybe even piercings and tattoos).

I'm sure there is more customization but I can't think of any right now, perhaps you guys can.

Hopefully we can get a deeper level of customization this time around since I was tired of seeing myself in near the same exact armor in ffxi a lot of the time. -_-

I'd like to see something like in Lord of the Rings Online. They let you adjust Hair, hair color, facial hair, eye color, nose, lips, and 2 additional features like scars or face wrinkles. They also have a "barber" in-game that lets you change some of the features if you decide you don't like them.

Well this time around we don't have 'PS2 limitations', we have PS3 limitations (I kid, I kid...) and I think that we will be offered ALOT more in terms of looks, equipment, etc. It makes me happy.

Personally I've never cared for character customization. I actually liked FFXI's very limited system over games like Lotro where you are given far greater control.

The way I see you can spend an hour or three customizing every fine detail of your character, but once you are out of that character creation screen with the zoomed in face it ceases to matter. No one is going to see that scar you placed on your chest under full plate armor. No one is going to see your hair style and color under a helm. You spend 95% of your character in zoomed out third person perspective looking at his/her backside.

In some MMORPGs it is different. In City of Heroes there is extensive control over character creation and it matters. In that game you show off what you created constantly, and every ounce of effort you put in is easily visible. In Lotro you also had extensive control, but no one ever saw it because once people put on their high level armor they all looked the same.
