I agree about auxiliaries, they honestly don’t bother me at all because they look like an adult, the proportions are all wrong for a child. Mine doesn’t even look like a short adult, its proportions look more like a toy.
I 100% believe the creeps I witnessed would absolutely take advantage of the height slider. I already see characters as short as mine with proportions of a prepubescent girl wearing the Duskwake outfit with revolting screennames hinting that they’re jailbait. Maybe they’re doing it to get a rise out of people but it’s awful. They’ve already shown they don’t care if they get banned posting graphic lolicon symbol art and my first alliance recruitment was from some creepy group idolizing that stuff.
I believe you’re right about TERA. I haven’t played in over a year so my memory’s fuzzy but I remember you could pay for a customization for Elins to enlarge their hips and things like that. I remember trying really dang hard to make mine look not so babyfaced because my favorite class was racelocked to Elin. Same with B&S and Lyn. Lyn to my knowledge only can have breasts with bikinis, which is disappointing. You can make them as tall as the shortest Jin and I have seen some good attempts at adult Lyns by shrinking the head, less anime face, ect.
That’s concerning and might be a good reason SEGA censored them then. I don’t know much about character models, other than a brief period of IMVU creations. Why is the genitalia even detailed? None of the outfits expose to that degree.
I don’t know what kind of work it would require to permanently attach an inner armor to shorter characters but I really hope it can be done.
