The normal bodies aren't too limited, if Valikorlia is used as an example. It just takes somebody with a little bit of pixel talent. Custom bodies, as I've experienced, are leagues more difficult to customize. You almost have to provide all customizations yourself, since most players aren't going to want to edit relatively complex graphics. I can see the benefit in have custom bodies, when it comes to providing accessories or other 'addons'. But I don't personally think it's worth it.

I agree with this. Also it is simple enough to edit the default ganis to add a simple extra customization thing like a weapon or something strapped to the back of the player, which is something I'd like.

I think the diversity of the normal bodies outweighs the customization benefits of custom bodies.

Plus, GK's bodies have stupid ganis. If you're going to do extra work, it might as well be on the guaranteed to look nice classic bodies than on the experimental GK ones.

The GK bodies (and heads for that matter) largely "****" as well. The simple fact of the matter is despite this players are still overwhelmingly playing on classic servers with classic bodies, and, are more concerned with matters of content/customization. Saying something ****s without having a better alternative renders your lazy counterpoint a nonstarter (even in this case where it's otherwise accurate).

I will however concede that it'd be nice to have a viable alternative to the two crapfest body standards we currently have on Graal, so, +rep for my liking of your blunt obviousness.
