Because I wanted Zeo's old post to come back with the new forums as well as my old lost suggestion post about face shapes, I figured I would include some old suggestions regarding the appearance change / dressing room system.
1) All races should at least have the same options for skin, hair and eye colors, if not new ones.
Out of 14 eye colors, six of them are some shade of blue for elves. Giants have even less options, and most of them are dark colors. Elves don't have the option to have darker skin, despite living in the desert. I know people that have started entirely new characters after awhile because they wanted darker skin. What might be a good idea to consider is a color wheel for all features.
2) Facial features should be separated from the default face shapes.http://mabinogi.nexon.net/Community/forums#/showthread.php?1289978-Separate-Face-Shapes-from-Face-Add-Ons&nxid=10
Especially given how old the default faces are, it makes the face add-ons, like scars, beauty marks, freckles and facial hair not worth it. The add-ons should be seperated from face shape - thus, for example, being able to choose freckles and putting them on any face shape you desire.
3) Old hair styles need to be updated.
As the concept of getting new hairs etc. from gachapons booms, we're still left with old, unupdated features. Some hair styles, like the NPCS in Tir have even had their hairs updated, so why aren't the players getting the updated versions? Players are only able to get updated, good looking hair from gachapons, rendering many default options you can get for free or with pons useless.
4) After using an appearance coupon, the option must be permanently unlocked in the dressing room.
Players spend tens of millions of gold on coupons, or given the rarity of coupons from the gachapon (specifically the new hairs), can spend hundreds of dollars and not even get them. If players finally get the item, they will likely never change their hair, and never rebirth as a new gender. This takes away a key component of the game - why even bother being able to switch genders when you'll lose what you paid so much money for? When using the coupon, have the features be permanently unlocked on that character, so even after changing genders or hairs, the player can go back to the same style.
If anyone else has suggestions or inputs I encourage you to respond!
