    FFXI "Fantasia" [Request] Show your support!

    Hi everyone!

    During the FFXI Dev. Team Reddit "AMA" (Ask me anything) the question was posed for FFXI to see an introduction of similar item found in FFXIV called "Fantasia" that allows you to change your characters apperance/race/gender!

    Here is a quote!

    Q.) Would it be possible to add an item that allows race/gender change, similar to FFXIV's Fantasia system?
    A: While it is possible, we learned that we’d have to revamp several aspects of the backend. We’d need to see if there’s enough demand to justify the development costs.
    and,

    Q.) To the Dev.’s response about adding a Fantasia system like FFXIV, players want to know how the Dev. team plans to look into demands. (Would it be survey, poll, live stream, etc.?)
    A: We primarily monitor the forums and the feedback we receive. Other than that, we also gauge how much attention a certain topic gets by keeping an eye out for places like this thread, where players are sharing their opinions.
    https://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/t...616.1637607042

    So I am compiling some forums discussion regarding this to help them better gauge interest!

    It could breathe at least a little breath of fresh air into people whom have grown bored with looking at the same toon all of this years....*mainly when they wish they picked the blonde one* and save for swapping the .dat file.

    just a thought while I download the 28,368 update files....

You could easily charge a fee of 5 dollars for name and 10 for gender swap or 20 for a complete redo of your current toon. I am positive a lot of people will wanna do this. As for the few who stick to there idea it will unbalance the game it will not don't try and force you game style on others.

    That said.. It's seriously a win-win. People who have had the same character for years deserve a chance to change up their appearance. Like in FFXIV, you get an item called Fantasia, and that allows you to completely remake your guy, excluding name, iirc. Just think about it, SE. Think about how much money you could- no, would make by making this a service like FF14. Even WoW lets you change your hairstyle for in game currency, (no real money spent.)

    Just something to think about.

    I know you read these. I'm just wondering why you're denying customers that have been playing for a decade+ while at the same time denying yourself damn near limitless amount of money.

    Developer responses on the subject on the forums previously:

    We know that there has been quite a few requests from players to be able to change your character's race, gender, and name. While this is something we continue to look into, nothing has been finalized in terms of implementation or release, so we cannot announce any concrete details yet. We appreciate your patience in this matter and we'll be sure to announce updates as soon as we have them to share!

    Conclusion:

    Maybe it would be good to finally add this feature, as many players spanning the years have asked for this many times?! Please? Thank you!

    I would not mind to see a service like this implemented, more revenue to justify the game existing and maybe we can deserve an expansion...

    They should cus its more money for them. To be honest this should of been done along time ago. They left alot money on the table by not doing it when they released XI.

    I support it, but ideally we'd see some new options alongside such a feature. Wish I could say I could see that happening

    That's what would make me more excited about something like this. But given they've never added any in 20 years, I have no expectation that will ever happen.
