SWTOR More options for Outfit Designer in future releases
SWTOR will be improving the Outfit Designer and add in some of the requested features after 3.2.

We think having the Outfit Designer ignore armor weight restrictions is a great idea! We are actively exploring changing this now, and I’ll let you know as soon as I know anything else.
I’ve also seen the mention of weapons and Companions being included in the Outfit Designer. Even though it may not seem like it, adding an Outfit Designer tab for Companions would effectively be creating a new system. Due to this we won’t be implementing one for 3.2, but will look into the option for a future release. Similarly, adding the ability to stamp weapons would require a lot of changes to the backend of the system that is currently in place, so it is unfortunately not feasible for a Game Update 3.2 release.

However, you haven’t talked about one concern: Switching between multiple armor sets so that the stats change, not just the appearance (e.g. between the PvP and PvE set, or tank and DPS sets). What’s your stance on this, is this also an option for a future release or completely on the wall of crazy?
It’s something that would certainly be useful (and I personally would love something along those lines – right now all my other gear is worn by Xalek), but the way the Outfit Designer is entirely appearance-based, and the functionality of switching actual gear sets would require a huge amount of redoing. It’s not something we are against by any means but, similar to the Companion Outfit Tab, it would require designing and creating an entirely new system so it’s not going to be in 3.2 or the immediate future.
