    Search Options:

    This is quite nice as you can select multiple rarities and filter out stuff. (I didn't have anything for the other rarities on me that I could sell)

    Suggestion:

    Add a "Sell all" button which is greyed out until a rarity or (rarities) are selected? (Or maybe just add that as a standard option to all stores. We can always buy back if there's a mistake made)

    A search tab when *not* at the store would be nice too. I spend a fair amount of time hunting my inventory for this or that device.

    Ooh, I like that hairstyle. This might sound weird but I really like how... "undetailed" it is? Like, a lot of newer hairstyles look really good with great textures and modeling... so good that they actually look kind of too good compared to the rest of the character, and means it's really hard to combo with older hairs!

    Here's hoping for some curly styles next! Or ones that can be used with hats; there are only like three that work with most headgear, and they're super-thin.

    Agreed.
    Most of the newer hairstyles have this sort of rough, forced-detailed textures that stand out like a sore thumb (plus w/ some pop-in issues). I vastly prefer the OG styles, much cleaner and visually cohesive, also easier to create color nuances – i.e a reddish brown or strawberry blonde, etc. They are also more “solid” in their proportions and placement, most of the new ones you can spot “bald areas" beneath, like a bad wig that just fell on your toon’s head.

    I’ve yet to test it out more thoroughly – but, at a glance? This is the best hairstyle we’ve had in a long, long while. Well done! :+1:

    If this hairstyle is a default style (doesn't require unlocking) it should have special materials if those materials have been unlocked (in the q or z store). Not currently able to check, and you can't get the z store unlocks on pts, but I think there's some q store hairs?

    Can we also have VIP level hot dogs and Narcola please?

    (Not joking...I would so load up on hot dogs.)

    On further inspection, the mesh seems too flat and smoothed out, quite simplistic still, same as all the new hairstyles that have been released these past few years.

    The OG hairstyles were sculpted with levels/layers and a decent degree of strand detail, which the color channels mostly followed, giving them a lot more depth, dimension, style, and allowing for richer, nuanced coloring.

    See what I mean, with OG (Middleparted Medium) X New (Long hairstyle):

    Given the same treatment as the original, this new Long hairstyle could have looked really cool... /feedback

    its ported from the male model; and i think it's one of the older hairs. a lot of the male hairs that're base look kinda underwhelming compared to the female ones

    i would like a way to see what is in each ones inventory and in my bank and base shared bank slots without loading each one. As i have well over 50 characters can get very time consuming to do this with many things like globals and other currency. Would be great to do it from the select screen so as not have to load the whole game to just do some inventory looking and such.

    Eh, I know but still… .:(

    It’s the closest (Middleparted Medium excluded) and albeit inferior-looking, to the one below - which isn’t in the game for some reason:

    Coulda been the Medium hairstyle we needed and deserved. Maybe? I've kind of given up on new hairstyles... :weary:

    Wish they would add a filter in the AH, to filter out unlocked costumes.

    how about unlocked powers, i mean something that tells you if it is unlocked on your account. I keep one guy open just so i can check which ones i have travel wise. But for other powers i have to leave a 40 to check them.

    You can find that out using the "All powers" window. Just change the filters and then click on powers to see if you've unlocked them.

    yes, but it does not work unless your leveling and then only if you have a power slot for the power. what i am saying something like for a costume par with something that you can just look at and day oh i already have that ultimate or power unlock. Other wise you don't know until you are pick a power of the appropriate level
