    Pink hair doesn’t exist naturally in real life and neither does a miqo’te.

    And Au Ra are kind of like Hyurs just with different body features, height/frame composition, and scales. I see where you're getting at, but this isn't the Sims unfortunately. Character Creation doesn't have a race problem, it just has a customization problem where everything feels so limited.

    Exactly.
    This is not real life, its a fantasy world - why is there a need to remodel real life racial features in this not-real life setting?
    Why try to make a midlander Hyur look like black person when their origin is clearly not africa? Thats like telling europeans that they have to try to look more black.

    I'd say that depending on race and their specific lore and origin stories it would be easier to make a more ethnic looking character - just how you get more asian-type faces for Au Ra because, well, they're from the "asia" or east in Eorzea.

    I'll admit that I've never tried to model anything but super-pale characters but I'd guess that if you pick a fitting race you can actually re-create racial features if you desire to do so. That race might just not be midlander for some of those because that race is drawing more from other influences.

    But bottomline: we have stuff in game that doesnt exist in real life and that seems okay to you. Why isnt it okay then to have real life stuff missing from the game?

    But is a Hyur’s origin Europe? Think before you type. I’m not saying a European has to look like anything other than what they are. Careful you may dislocate your shoulder with that reach.

    Have you tried them in the actual game? Skin colors look off in the creator as is.

    It's.. rather mistaken to say some of the stuff said here. There's no such thing as "black noses" or "white people lips". We know better than that now. Far better.

    I can understand wanting hairstyles more in line with different hair types, but that's kind of a j rpg hair issue, not a race one.

    What that means is that they cannot EASILY add more options. Any software can have thousands of options. It's just a matter of implementing them and knowing how to adapt the code to accommodate them. The issue is that the original code was written to handle x number of options from the Database and they don't want to go into the code and rewrite that part.

    I had made a character of my ex-fiancée for fun 2 years ago. She was Vietnamese. I think a character based on her looked good!
