It's only a game, it's not sacred ground or anything..
Sometimes I think some people take the Witcher franchise way too seriously />
The Witcher is not just some "randomly made up" fantasy game like TES (for example). It's not even loosely inspired by books or the world. As I've written before, it's HIGHLY defined by the the books. CDPR sticks to them pretty well. For god sakes, A. Sapkowski himself helped with some story issues for the game.
That's why I take it seriously. I just can't watch what is becoming of it with the mods (see as minds of the modders!). That might be the whole problem here. The whole idea of changind the solid TW world to something else. To some normal customizing game. Losing the idea of witchers or Geralt himself.
An example (the robe again). I generally don't mind the freaking robe. I mind the person who event thinks of a robe for Geralt. And the people who willingly downlaod it. It's like the wishlist forum - some guy wanted fast travel or sneaking (picklocking and so on) ability. Go play TES then, don't play The Witcher. But that's a whole different story, so I quit.
Nice holidays, everyone!

Plus, different people like different things, and that's okay. If someone enjoys thinking of Geralt as a mage, then they get to play him that way; it doesn't hurt MY game any if someone else has stuff they enjoy in their game. ›››
Well. And that's the problem of today games. The customization became a huge deal in RPGs. And it's a good thing, I like it. BUT! TW is a precise and definied character. Geralt IS NOT a mage. He's not. He's a witcher. And from what I see, he's more swordsman (in the books he couldn't even use signs in the end, remember?)
That's why I hate the robe and all the magic enhancing, because it's just outside the logic, rules and overall idea of TW world. Wizzards and sorceresses do magic, they laught at witcher and their childish tricks called signs.
As for the whiter hair - I see another eye for detail from CDPR here. Imagine the TW world. I doubt you'd be able to keep your hair snow white. I don't think they are grey, I see them as dirty white.
And one more thing, dear Corylea. As a "customer" of these mods I have a full right to criticize them. As a reader you criticize books, as a viewer you criticize movies, etc. Yes, it's great they do it for free, but since there's been a tremendous amount of sloppy work, I need to let them know, no mather how painful it may be (assuming from the minus count rising). You as a creator - don't tell me, you don't want your creations to be perfect. I want mine, too. So I would never present anything less than that. Just sayin'
