I have seen the presentation yesterday but I would like to suggest some sort of body "Size" customization if possible.......a skinny barbarian? Really? To me it does not fit into the role, what do you think?

Dude, if they would make a masculine man this would offend twitter community. And this game revolves around pleasing twitter mob. So you only can ask for masculine women and for feminine men. This is why there are no normal feminine women to romance also.
So good that when DOSII was created they didn't try to please twitter. This is why DOSII is great.

Yeah, the barbarian class really shows that this game needs body type options. Twitter mob be damned smile

100% agree! When has anyone ever seen a short, scrawny "barbarian" that seemed intimidating? I realize that Wolfheart guy might be one of the bigger YouTubers for BG3, but his BODY TYPE is not that of a barbarian I'd ever want to ROLEPLAY. Give us some body size mods so we can make characters look the way we want them to look.

I was thinking same when i started my latest playthrough and went into character creator, I was bit disappionted this time that we do not have body modification or muscle customization system in character creator, at least give us 4-5 preset options Larian, Pwease

Yeah, the malnourished barbarian look doesn't work for me. It's bad enough that I haven't been able to get myself to play the new patch yet.

Is the lack of body sizes the reason we don't have half-orcs yet?

I can't help but notice some truth to this when I see the companions. All the females start with a Str score over ten. All the males start with a Str score under ten.

Fret not, big barbs are coming – check out Chubblot's recent tweet

I'm kinda surprised they released barbs without these ready for players, but I'm sure they had their reasons.

Totally agree. Tried to roll a human barbarian but seeing that wimp made me move to dwarf. Then i heard the available voices and...meh.
I am missing half-orcs at this point or mentioned body options. A fitting body is already ingame, i mean, look at Halsin and he half-elf...

Funny how people complain that Barbarians desperately need half orcs ...
But nobody complained that Wizard cant be a Gnome ... frown

If we had Illusionists and Artificers I’d be more upset at the lack of gnomes

Ah, a person of culture! Glad I'm not alone. Been preaching about body types since the Early Access launch. Where are my muscle women and men for martial classes, and my rotund people for eventual monks? Heheh

But seriously, yes, I'm DYING for body types.

I think adding body types would be great. Their lack of feels particularly jarring now that we have the Barbarian trailer.

Heck, I would love to see a body type similar to Jimmy from Panel From Hell, not just the classic Arnie.

Dig deeper next time. It was original design, all characters would narrate themselves in past tense. Then the idea changed because players was unhappy with the past tense in dialogues. That narrating Chubblot's found is leftovers.

And for the topic. I'd think everyone would know by now that the body types are in work. It just not that simple to implement them.

I can imagine that there will be different body type options once the game is released, and that they are not yet included because it is not that easy to implement them.
As far as I know, you can not simply use the same rig for all body types when you want your characters to look/move realistically. And the animation of more pronounced muscles should also be realistic.

There is also a lot of physical interaction between our character and the companions/other NPCs. I think it is (currently) simply more easy to consider only a few different character models for these animations. There already is a character with a more muscular body type, Halsin, but our characters do not really interact with him physically.

I would really like some variety in body types once the game is released, but to me, it is perfectly fine when it is not yet implemented in early access due to time constraints.

Halsin's body would be perfect as a barbarian.
