The very first question, about updating the racial textures, reminded me of something: I wonder if it would be possible to add sizing to the races? Obviously, it would be within certain perameters (you could never make a gnome the size of a tauren, for example), but if you wanted to make your human warrior a few inches taller, and a few pounds heavier, you could. Or make your orc rogue slightly smaller (lets face it, with those big orc shoulders, those guys are sneaking anywhere) you could.Not a big deal, just something that might be cool from a cosmetic and RP perspective.

No, that option is not going to be added. Size for playable races are set. Only temporary size increases/decreases are available by using the scale command. Actually adjusting the models slightly up or down will screw the animations up, bad.They said that way back, when the game was in development. Making adjustable heights and weights required you to take that into account for every animation. Or you just ignored it, which is what Sony did with some games, and it looked like shit.Adjusting your height would also change your armor, and probably distort the textures. Size is hardcoded, and is likely impossible to change without reworking the entire engine.

I'm still hoping for a boob slider. Make the current sizes the max value, and let us have some customization. Strikes me as odd the way my female warrior so deftly wields a sword and shield with those big melons strapped to her chest.
