@SleeprunnerInc said in The censorship on being short should be removed. Round 2:
Hitsugi is 16.
Aru is 16 (As that's Hitsugis playable char and player characters are 16 by minimum due to being a requirement to participate in field ops)
Kohri is 16 too.
Regardless, the height change is such a ridiculous thing to change at all.
If we have the option to make goblin sized people originally, why change it away and lock it?
What sort of brainstorm happened to cause the height to be locked at 150 or whatever it is?
Was it the average height? If so then the kid argument is thrown out the window as that's the average height of a child.
If it's due to the age argument then that's out the window too since Height=/=age.
This is why we need clarity on things.
And if both changes were made in regards to that one public washroom cutscene- once again, cutscenes can be skipped.
Japan wasn't the first country to allow public bathing, either.
Rome did it first, and everyone else followed the more Catholic standards of lone bathing. (Minus any servants of the era.)
However, currently the Netflix movie Cuties is garnering backlash that some might argue that the PSO2 virtual teenagers otherwise would have garnered.
In the current climate, maybe the height restriction was deemed somehow necessary for moderation standards, but I still don't really buy that excuse.

My cynical feeling is that height restriction is the least effort "seen to be doing something about it" action even if at best it only reduces the amount of objectionable characters. Any other alternative that we have discussed would be more work to implement. If this was true, I cannot see admitting so being in the company interests.
Since SEGA won't speak about it, we don't know which PSO2 branch or staff team actually suggested implementation of the restriction in the first place.
But I agree, whatever the "problem" was, this solution is indeed the laziest I have ever seen.
I play a female CAST, currently the shortest I can keep her at is 154, depending on the Legs or outfit's shoes.
All she is to me is a dress up character, same with my main in Mabinogi.
I honestly don't know where staff would get outlandish and phobic ideas.
It appears to me through JP blog posts, that JP players love to make the young characters, simply because it's "Moe," or cute.
Why can't NA or Global players do the same?
