Hair Physics

Okay fellas, I'm not very familiar with these forums and I've never made a post before, but I'm pretty upset with this hairstyle update and wanted to discuss.

Sure, they made some of the hairstyles look nicer and I'm not sure what of all hairstyles were affected, but they also seem to have removed most of the physics from most of them and or completely changed the look of them.

Normally this wouldn't upset me as much but most of these hairstyles are on DLC characters or cosmetics, so I'm upset that something I liked and paid for was changed.

I've seen some other people upset about Nea's green hair, Claud's, and even Feng's hairs, but for me I'm really upset about Jane's ponytail and all of Kate's hairstyles. Like I said I'm not sure what all they touched, and I know Kate's hair was pretty bad and the updated hair really does look better. But it doesn't move, its play-doh on her head. That's a downgrade.

Why were all these other hairstyles changed though?

Look I know it's a really stupid thing to get upset over but these visual customization's that I paid for have been changed. I bought Kate because I loved her hair and I bought one of Jane's cosmetics because I loved her ponytail, but they have changed them. It makes me want a refund, since what I bought isn't what was advertised anymore, and it makes me not want to buy any other cosmetics. I’m just one customer. I know. and I don't expect a refund but I'm complaining here, sisters.

I love this game. I'm all for supporting it and things being updated. I don't have a problem with cosmetics either, but these updated hairstyles really do look downgraded to me.

In the end, i'm upset about the loss of physics on my favorite hairstyles.

Im guessing a few people might already agree with me, but i'm also ready to discuss other viewpoints

    I fully agree - I've spent so much money beforehand just to see piles of clay glued to the Survivors backs

    @Peanits Is anything being done about the physics of the hair? Its just too stiff and moves way worse than the old hair! I miss physics

    Thanks to my discussion they got changed from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1 and looks better, but meg is still look like this while running :

    Yes, the changes to Meg's default hair are great, if not a little bit buggy, but they bloody move so that's a plus! :D I'm hoping they are going to slowly but surely roll out the hair physics for each survivor

    Wait what's wrong with Nea's Green hair? I love it! <3

    I agree. I believe they were originally changed because they bugged out too often. Which I get, however, surely there's a happy medium in there somewhere. I don't even use Jane's ponytail anymore because it's as stiff as a branch when running and looks awful. The hair looks fine, I just want more physics. @Peanits please ask the animation team if they can consider this.

    Somebody must have did or said something for them to change the hair. That's the only reason I can see them changing it. You know the phrase one bad apple.

    @Peanits Can you talk to the animation team about making the physics more dynamic for the hair??

  • ProfoundEndingProfoundEnding Member Posts: 1,034

    I think it was more buggy then anything. A lot of times the hair would fly and can be seen across the map. They probably looked into and found that reducing the physics was the easiest way to fix the problem.

    It sucks I loved the floppy hair on kate it was much more realistic and fun than the brick we have now on her head
