Great FAQ, answers a lot of my first doubts.

Gosh, this seems so complicated. On the one hand, kudos for Phantasy Star Online 2 Meseta maintaining the game intact so that there will not be a riot over changes people do not like. However on the other hand, since they're remaking base PSO2 visuals anyhow, I wish they would only go 100% and synchronize personality models completely. Giving old players some free style items and unlocks will be sufficient to bribe everyone to take the new system.

Synchronizing 100% personality models doesn't seem easy. The dilemma is that the older outfits and layer wear are modeled to match the older pso2 body. In order to synchronize it, they would have to recreate from scratch (haha pun) 8 decades of cosmetics. That is unlikely to happen. I mean that I'd be ready to shed a certain proportion of those makeup to help keep things intact across variations. Provided that there's a continuous feed of cool new stuff to replace it, I don't mind. I constantly rotate my old looks anyhow. Provided that the character versions translate 1:1 it'll still feel just like mine.

The example I can think of is that the Dragon Hunter Frontier Z collaboration where I could imagine the clothing and weapons could unquestionably be given a visual update alongside everything else but that I don't exactly know how the licensing or the way the legal side of the collaboration works where I would want it was as easy as Sega going through and upgrading the resources but I don't know about how much Capcom is involved in that process.

I can imagine that likely out there we will still see somebody wearing those old collaboration items even when they are not awakened to PSO2 Meseta for sale the same standards as new makeup in a similar way and that there would have been outrage when it was made unusable or obsolete. Collabs that have experienced their makeup removed nevertheless have their assets exist on the game so those will likely still be available for jp players.
