The primary purpose of the character
designer is to make creating the perfect
outfit easier. If you have ever spent hours
trying to find that perfect look, you know
exactly what I mean. Finding a piece of an
outfit that works well without knowing the
exact name can be a huge pain, and takes
away from the fun experience of making an
outfit. The character designer allows you to
search by key words, like "mandalorian" or
"armor", in addition to allowing you to
preview items you may not currently have
access to, not just the ones on the GTN or
The character designer also serves another purpose. In the process of creating this tool I came across the SWTOR-Extractors-Modders-Dataminers community. One of the main parts of this community is extracting the game models from the game (don't worry, its completely legal). The problem with this is it can take AGES to extract just one toon. I decided I wanted to speed this up, so I added it to the saving function. When you save a toon, you download this neat little zip file with all the information on your toon in just 3 json files! Now you just have to run a small script and bam! All your models are in an intuitive file structure in the unzipped folder you downloaded!
I also want to thank everyone who has been interested in this and encouraged me as I have worked on it. Yall are awesome, I really appreciate it.
