one minor thing that would greatly improve charater creation: if you change the hair/hair color/face etc., it always takes a second to load in which the character is 'gone', and then reloads with the new hair/hair color/face. this makes it harder to directly compare options, especially if youre deciding between, for example, two very similar hair colors or skin colors.
If this 'reloading' of the character could be removed, comparing two options would be much easier.
