Q&A

  • Butt sliders: no
  • Increasing garden item slots: maybe later
  • Eos or Selene recovering position after knockback: do it yourself!
  • Rhythm game in Gold Saucer: maybe (probably not)
  • Remove racial restrictions for hairstyles: yes for some, not all
  • Remove racial restrictions for hempen sets: difficult technically
  • Repeating MSQ fights: difficult technically. Roll an alt
  • 3.0 EX primals too easy, what about 4.0?: accessiblity of content is more important to them
  • Krile outfit on mogstation: would be expensive to make

  • PS4 Pro patch: in progress
  • Keeping flowers in pots: planned for 3.5X
