Mirror Universe Uniforms: Female
After asking several times on the forums and putting in an actual service ticket, I finally got an answer as to whether or not the Mirror Universe set includes female uniform tops. To whit:
*Currently the Mirror Universe top is exclusively for males. If you would like that changed please start a suggestions thread on the forums in the proper channels. Our dev team checks regularly for suggestions.
Needless to say, this is a disappointment, since it's hard to build a Mirror Universe crew if you can't actually put your female characters into uniforms. At the same time, I don't think it's the most important priority for the costume/character creator team as it stands. After all, the Mirror Universe uniform is an exclusive to Champions Online lifetime subscribers. While they (we) might be disappointed by this, I think the various issues that hit the whole population are more significant.
However, that doesn't change my desire to have female uniforms for my Mirror Universe crew
, so here's my proposal:
Please fast track a Mirror Universe female top for the Cryptic Store. At the same time, add an option for the TOS uniform set to have a mirror universe badge instead of the commbadge, so people without access to the MU jacket who do
have TOS uniform access could still do a Suluesque Mirror Universe uniform alongside their Uhura special.
Leaving a full sex ununiformed is, I think, a really bad move on Cryptic's part. I'd certainly be happy to spend some Cryptic points on rectifying it (and letting non-CO Lifetime folks get it as well), but either way I think there should be the option, and it shouldn't take long.
