Section 31 Uniforms
 
Does anybody know what these uniforms will look like in game? Just wondering if they'll be worth it because if its just a black looking garment I would hope the art department would produce better choices for uniforms BUT if it looks cool then I'll buy it.

you will probably get a glimpse if you speak to drake in your contact list, but there will of course be screenshots on the site when it goes live. they should look like the ones sloan wore in DS9.

i would not expect too much tough, they are effectively just black coats.

Woot
 
Personally i like them... the only question I have is can i put rank and combadge on them as Drake has neither....

Go down to the uniforms area.

It'd be nice if the uniform came with new gloves too. I don't mind one of the styles, but I never use the 'padded'.

Play Suspect again, and you can have a good look.

Sloan's jacket had a leathery look. I sure hope the Section 31 uniforms incorporate more than just what the in-game character is wearing.

The uniform (yes, nothing plural) is available in the C-Store. You can add a few CommBadges but other than that, it's pretty basic. No rank pins, no new gloves, no trenchcoat variant, no special Deputy Director Rank (this would really be a seller if included), and there are stance clipping issues. If your toon has the Thoughtful stance, your hands disappear into the butt of your toon. Honestly Cryptic... Does anyone seriously take a look at these models before releasing them into the C-Store? If the AFT uniform is any indication of how little the uniforms mean to your income, then this will never be resolved just like the AFT ramk pin clipping issues have never been resolved. Bug reports filed for both but nothing ever done!

at 240 C-points I won't be purchasing it. It's drastically overpriced in comparison to other uniforms which are sets... which me saying that will have Cryptic go and in crease the sets to prices to make it seem better.

Oh, damn, that precludes me from using it then, combined with how I would have to buy additional costume slots in order to fit it in (I wish we could place it in the off-duty slot, I never use that costume). Besides, even though I like to think of my character as a member of S31, wearing the costume in plain view on starbases and while captaining a ship does not seem to be plausible. Sticking with my mainly black leather starfleet uniform will probably have to do....But I might as well check it out in the tailor tonight to see how it looks for myself. If those clipping issues are present though, I would have difficulty using it for my Vulcan main.
