Removing Height Restrictions

@MoldyAsp33874 Im pretty sure there are some reasons out there that do make sense. Folks just don't care one way or another because they have to have what they want. Ive said it before on here, until they can give us an answer, the folks who have an issue with this have an avenue to take

Okay what is one reason?

@MoldyAsp33874 I never said I had one, I just said I think theres a good reason out there. I use tall characters so this restriction doesn't bother me

logically speaking the height restrictions go in both directions so for example someone who wanted to honor the late WWE legend Andre the giant by making their character 8 feet tall can't do it because it exceeds the maximum or if they wanted to make a Hobbit sized character they can't because it exceeds the minimum so on that basis it is a good idea to at least modify the minimum and maximum height if it's not possible to remove them

Well it should if you use really tall characters- since the max height was also changed. Just less people talk about it- much less people in NA that are that tall than there are ones under 5ft.

@MoldyAsp33874 I just happen to fall in the camp where the max height is perfect for me in this game is all

@XenoBladeX37645 Good for you, however don't get worried for others.

It's their business and so far you have been the onlyone to voice concerns over said thing.

As for the height and reasons, don't chime in with '' theres a good reason out there'' if you don't know what it is.

It's just a dumb statement to make since you could use that for any discussion and it would just be a meaningless comment.

@SleeprunnerInc Sorry for being concerned for others, didnt know that was a crime around here. Also if you deem it meaningless thats on you. Believe what you want as I will

@XenoBladeX37645 Fair is fair.

I just personally think it's annoying hearing someone getting annoyed or concerned for someone else with a thing that's not really a big issue.

If it was a safety hazard in a workplace such as construction site, that's a warranted risk.

But a spoiler or opinion based thing? Totally not warranted.

I'm glad we got this collab- I really didn't think we'd get it. Sadly- Megumin is shorter than the NA minimum height- so you can't make a perfectly faithful cosplay of her with it. You have everything you need except those couple inches. Would have been nice to pose as a group of 4 with kazuma, darkness, aqua and megumin(sorry yunyun) but those extra inches really make it look off next to characters you constantly see standing next to each other in the anime- and meg with her hat is suddenly towering quite a bit more than she is supposed to.

How do you go about contacting the Devs?.. What is the medium that is used? Do you send an email? Maybe you know some in-person? Possibly a private email only those working with PSO2 NA support have? Hopefully it's more of a straight line than what options we have. I'm wondering if you actually have consistent contact with them or if they just set some people up as GMs and proceeded to let them roam wild and ignored. If you can't answer- not a big deal. It's just for my own reassurance.

We do have consistent contact with them, and I am unable to specify the platforms/medium we use.

Figured as much- all hush hush secret secret. But that's okay- at least you have consistent contact with them and are not just hoping a very indirect voice is heard after filtering through so many channels. Let's hope we can get something about the height restriction mentioned in official capacity by them- I would love if our feedback went somewhere and really feel better about putting my money into a game in which the Devs give voice to their community.

I understand the reason why they have the height restrictions; it isn't about height inherently being offensive, but more about avoiding a potential PR disaster. The character creator offers alot of freedom with how you can dress up a character.

Give a 'Loli/Shouta' type character as skimpy outfit? May be cute in Japan, but in the West, where we are hypervigilant against pedophilia? You might aswell be adding softcore child porn to the game.

The lawsuits would come in, and neither Microsoft nor Sega of America would want that. Especially when it took them eight years to finally release the game here.

It is the same reason why Bethesda games program their children to be immortal; if the player character was allowed to kill child characters, there'd be an uproar and the game would get an AO rating, and major publishers absolutely refuse to host those games.

It is shame too, the height restriction actually works against making tall characters; My character was 203cm tall undressed, 208cm dressed. The height restriction caused the game to underflow and think I made the character less than 150cm tall, when in fact I was using the maximum height possible, thus preventing me from making my character the way I wanted.

Can't be lawsuits- doesn't break any laws. Far from a PR disaster- it causes more backlash for removing content than it would if it was kept the same. The difference is just a few inches. People just want to make their JP chars using the importer but can not due to that slight restriction.

Killing children isn't an A/O rating. It's just a moral high-ground thing(though reasonably so) that devs don't want to make appealing.

Also still waiting to see if this means they're removing all humanoid mini suits for NA... Because that would be very disingenuous considering they're promising all the content yet had decided to remove content before the game even launched. There is no world where those minisuits exist yet create a char censors height- it would just be flat out hypocrisy.

Just gonna chime in on that point. There are some games where dead teenagers or children are the main theme and none of them have an AO rating. Danganronpa and the upcoming Death March Club come to mind specifically.
