Is there an option to hide my character's helmet?
I'd really like to hide my helmet. I haven't found any in-game options, but maybe I missed it. Is there an option somewhere, or an INI file I can edit, to be able to do this?
This has never been a feature of a TES game, so it's unlikely TES5 can do it. Do you want it just for visuals in 3rd-person, for taking screenshots of your character, or some other reason? Would being able to quickly take it off and put it back on be helpful?
It seemed strange that you can customize appearence of your character and then hide it with helmet
Not everyone will choose to wear a helmet or a hood. When I made mages in Oblivion, they usually went bare-headed.
