    Question Want to make lotro points? A suggestion for the store.

    I would like to tattoo my character. Got barbers. How about Tat Artists at the major centers? And some way to load tats you want as opposed to having only a selection like other games.

    *can't believe he is answering this*

    Simply put, not happening.

    The ability to upload imagery to the game is probably not the hard part. It's screening it. Every image loaded to the game for a tattoo would have to be looked over by someone and checked. (vulgar language, imagery, or what ever guidelines were put in place.) Then you'd have all kinds of fights over what would/should be allowable. Different standards for RP servers, etc. First nightmare for Turbine.

    The excess load for everyone would probably be the second hardest part. Every single image you load would have to be loaded by every single person who sees you. Right now, your computer has every image needed for the game, loaded on it's hard drive. Now, if you allowed tattoos, every one of those would have to either be loaded to your HD, causing an update every single day before you play, or, Turbine would have to store every image on their data base and would have to send you additional image data every single time you see a person.

    If you thought Galtrev was a lag fest in the day, imagine what it would be like if you had to download new image data for every character you saw as you walked past them. Not just the data already needed for them, but toss in a Jpeg or two as well. Every time you saw someone.

    Not worth the time or money for Turbine to add.

    Also it is a lore violation only the bad Guys wear Tats.

    Most importantly it is a license violation SZC and Turbine put the quash on that long ago.
