    Default Reincarnating is awesome except for one thing...

    10% bigger


    This may be a pretty minor point in the grand scheme of things, but it's something that grinds my gears a little all the time. From third life on, PC Elves are taller than NPC humans, Halflings are as tall as some elves, and don't even get me started on Humans, half-Orcs and Warforged.

    Aesthetically it's just wrong.

    As far as gameplay goes I find it annoying if the character takes up too much space on the screen, scrolling out is only a partial solution since this affects camera movement, visibility and how hard or easy it is to target a particular enemy out of a bunch.


    I'd like to suggest that the change in size be made optional. This way people who want to visually show that they've invested the time and effort to level up to 20 and beyond several times can do so, and those who prefer not to play a freakishly tall character can do so as well.

    I don't notice the difference much either but it is bad it punishes TRs who use Improved Precise Shot by making it harder to hit multiple targets. We already have wings to separate us from those who haven't TRed the hight adjustment can go as far as I am concerned.

    Oh I don't know... My halfling enjoys being able to see over the top of the counter in the taverns now.

    Me: "One beer, please..."
    Bartender: "Who said that!?"

It is like going to a museum and bragging about how fast you made it through. Or bragging about how fast you finished a good steak.

    options

    me likes options

    something in the creating toon screen that is set to 0 in 1st life
    2nd life u can move to +1 or -1 (same difference than now from 1st to 2nd life, but u could be smaller than the base if u wanted to)
    3rd life u can move to +2 or -2 (same as before)

    so not every legend will have the same height

    PS: the "fattening" option would be nice too, with same values and some minor changes (+2 doesnt need to be really fat, but at least u could argue ur 8 base con drow legend with visual description, same with the 70 con dwarf, well, a -2 height and +2 weight dwarf would be quite close to a ball)

    ofc these are visual changes, imho there's no need to adjustments for jumping and swinging animations
    psykopeta is finally baconpletionist because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS: I post only in the latest thread shown in main page, in the weird case u want something from me, feel free to send pm

    I rather like it. If you are standing in a group of first, second, and third lifers it gives the illusion somewhat of the natural variances in height. Everyone being the same is not only unrealistic, it's kind of visually creepy.

    The relative size of the PC races do not change with TR.

    The difference is so small I can't believe there is a perceptible difference in relation to NPCs either.

    One of the few good things about Elder Scrolls Online was the flexible character appearance, which let you change height within certain parameters. Mega tall elf ladies ftw.
