Better Character models/animations/more hair styles

Suggestion

I would love to get a update to our human character (like a TLC) make it so maybe we can be more unique from each other, like able to customize our faces and stuff so we look like other characters or just more unique then being a slightly different version of the same person. and along with this remade human player the outfits/armors can be touched up to be more fitting to the new models maybe even allowing for little customization to the armors we make (like ability to just change how it looks, like a alternate version of the armor so not adding new armors just giving the player a choice of style of the armors look.). Another thing to go with it is to maybe make better animations for the player as well, maybe even update the combat system along with it. More hair styles of all kinds of styles that maybe reference other games be cool too.

these ideas are like my own as well and fit perfectly with the idea.

to just match up my idea with two other similar ones.

This is a post I get behind. 

Are there other things to fix? Probably.  Are there other things that could be added that may be more useful? Possibly. 

However this really brings it a bit more individuality to players in the game. As it is, if you want to play with a character that is unlike most others, you will most likely appear very unique- to put it nicely, which is all well and good for some, but not always liked by everyone. Which means you end up with many characters looking very similar to each other. So revamping the character creation menu would be nice, though for those of us with an established character, we may be trapped with what we have unless they would also provide access to redesign your character somehow. 

New clothing/armor and hairstyles would be a way to allow for some more creativity without changing an entire system. PC has a large variety through their mods, but those of us on console, do not, not really. We have some event skins, but most are event or holiday based and do not make up a complete set of armor when worn. 

For the clothing/armor options I would honestly be happy with some additional skins that we could add to full armor sets. With the leveling system they have, additional armor is somewhat unnecessary. (referring to journeymen, mastercraft, ascendant levels) If they didn't exist in that manner however, and were instead kept a flat level, seeing a higher leveled Hide set with better stats may work. New name, new level, new look, a more costly recipe, but essentially the upgraded version of a Hide armor set. That is only one example however, as it could apply to the rest. 

To revamp the clothing/armor in that way however, would be a complicated re-work. Which is why I would be more inclined towards, and happy with, some skin sets that we could either win as an achievement, or craft to place on top of the armour as we do with others currently in game. At this point, I would even be willing to pay for them. They figured out a way to attach a HLNA to an account, I would imagine the could do so for a skin set. Only unlike the HLNA, you could toss/deleted it from your inventory if you so wished so it wouldn't cluster your line items. They would simply have to have it set to where it is attached to an account so those in game who have not paid for it could not wear it. Hairstyles could be handled in a similar fashion. 

Those are just my thoughts though. It is something we discuss often in my cluster as we joke about how we look and how we must all be related to look so similar. 😁

I do agree with a lot of this that you said. though just for like certain things like different looks to armor parts I was just thinking it be you make the armor then you can right click it and then have a list of different versions of looks/ skins for said armor. Then I don't mind more hairs added through events and such but I do hope wed just get normal updates to just add some that are there to use from the start then having to go about the map to get them.

Now one thing I think would be better then just small updates to players would be like a dino TLC lvl of updates to players like remaking the models and some systems with the player animations and stuff. I literally have been fantasizing about someone making a mod that over hauls the player characters in all aspects from the model to the animations they have. Like resizing all the weapons and armor to not look off on the player models, maybe allow hair to be seen under helmets and hats, idle animations you can choose to make your character feel more unique etc. Just things to breath new life into the game. Like maybe maybe even animations that have our character actually pet/hug our dinos XD.

I literally have tons of ideas for how the character customization and such can be improved, and if I had the skills or knew friends I could help guide with the vision/idea I would do it to help make the game better cause I love ark but some things just rub me the wrong way, and being carbon copies of everyone in game do that to me the most. Also to me donig this change would make it so much better lore wise, since all on the ark are meant to be different cloned people from time I believe and not literal clone army, cause what would be the point of making nothing but identical clones  back to earth.

Oh and another thing my like Ark 2.0 idea which is sort of the idea I have been calling my like ark overhaul ideas is that once the update or mod is installed you'd get a item in your inventory that is like a syringe that if used would have your character put it in their implant and that would allow you to redesign your character again. Id say you can also craft them but they should be somewhat hard to craft kind of like mind wipe stuff.

I totally agree that the character models need to be updated. I mean, Helena's head as she appears in Extinction looks better than our character, and she's basically JUST a head. They should also give our characters better facial animations for stuff like if they get hurt etc. Also, when you mention "an alternate version of the armor so not adding new armors just giving the player a choice of style of the armors look", I'm pretty sure you mean skins.

Yes I completely agree with that, In fact that character model too me would be the main reason they should update the player models so that they match up to the rest of the game and keep the quality all in line so the next game can focus on just fully improving things and not taking steps back to red do things they could have fixed before hand. And honestly I d love to just be able to get my characters to cosplay other characters like regina from dino crisis. I like to cosplay in the game kind of sometimes XD. And yeah skins but ones that you don't have to collect, they are just there to change up the look if you want it to, but they will still be/look like your wearing hide or leather etc.  They could also always make new armors to fill out the tiers a bit more with more clothing options per tier.

This is a post I completely agree with. I almost always go female because I really hate how the male model looks. Specifically the face. Having a way to just change things like the jaw's looks, and maybe muscle definition, without having toothpick arms and such, would help. The shape of the jaw alone would let you have many different looks, honestly.
