Hands up if you want this in the game!

    With the vast technological advances in Starbound at present, friendly barbers should be old news.
    Plastic surgery should be a thing of the past.
    There should be technology that allows its user to reconstruct their genes to allow for a different skin or hair color or to shape your hair the way you want it.

    What's that? People don't even know what a haircut is? everyone looks the same forever?

    Chucklefish, come on.. The universe needs diversity on a daily basis. Please allow us to re-customize our characters.

    I have been screaming about this for the past century. Literally, every game like Starbound (i.e. Minecraft, Terraria, etc.) have a way to allow you to alter your character's features, so why doesn't Starbound have it? I'm a 100% sure everyone would love if this was added.

    (Also, I'm p sure this should've been posted in the Suggestion Forum. Perhaps you should just delete this and post the thread again in the Suggestion Forum.)

    Yeah, not sure why this isnt already a thing. Could just be a simple as adding a barber npc to the outpost.

    Yeah, body modification should be easy as all hell given the fact that Starbound takes place at least 500 centuries in the future. I mean, besides the natural advancement of human technology, the influx of new ideas and concepts from other species would have given technology a major boost, and such modification doesn't even seem that far-off right now. Re-customization should definitely be in the game.

    On a side-note, I headcanon this and the prominence of human culture due to the Protectorate as the reason for Starbound's...rather weird design decision regarding the female character models for non-humans.

    Surprised this isn't a thing yet.

    If there's a mod for this, a link for it would be nice.

    I most definitely want this feature! Here's hoping CF makes it happen ^_^

    I remember those chairs in Animal Crossing that basically styled your hair based on some settings that the poodle earlier typed in as soon as you took a seat. Not sure why a Furry Universe has those but Starbound hasn't.

    Know barbers from GTA V? Those who can turn you into an afro-american when you have no hair at all

    Barbers would be a great start, but we need more than just haircuts to be honest.

    Nobody has come up with a mod for this yet unfortunately.

    It would be nice of course, but tbh with all those helmets and stuff i rarely see the face of my character

    I would really like for this to be a thing. I picked some nasty hair for my Novakid, it looked nice in the thing, but the clipping is eye-gore worthy when I put on some gear.

    I truly agree! There is a lack of beards in the character customization imo :sparta:

    Beards would then be a human only thing, and maybe Apex too. But now that I think about it, having Florans have tufts of grass or flowers as beards would be cool, maybe the Novakids could have a darker haze where the beard is meant to be, etc. etc.

    Again I have to totally agree with you! Stop throwing all the good ideas :V!
