NPC Uniform Colours
 
Hello,

I am not sure but is it right in my eyes that the Player and NPC characters have unique colour codes on their uniforms?

When I am at the tailor trying to figure out what gold/ocre tone the Engineer Corps has, I can't find the right one.

Any ideas?

Mouseover the colorswatch shows a code for each color at the Tailor, if that is what you mean.

The most comprehensive color guide in the game is Blackavaar's Guide to Canon Colors.

All of the uniforms are listed there.

Thank you for the link, will take a look at it.

I think I wasn't to specific, take the Security Guards or the Engineer NPCs at ESD for example.

I know they have unique uniforms, but their specific colour (red/gold/blue) seems different from what I can find at the tailor.

Forgot, I meant the colours of the Body-Armor

I'll have to look when I log in. I think the security guards on ESD are wearing armor. IIRC the Engineer NPCs are wearing standard Cryptic designed uniforms with the regular color palette.

The colors on that armor aren't customizable. They are unique to the armor, based on the division of the character/boff that's wearing it. They may not have used the basic color palette for it.

Part of your problem might have to do with the ambient lighting in where ever you are looking at the particular NPC. different areas have different ambient lights and can cause the colors to look different. Most Tailors, i have noticed do not use the best lighting for how the uniform looks so you can get a discrepancy on what the uniform looks like, even if you are using the correct colors.

Someone linked Blackavaar's guide. That is a great source for both canon and in-game uniform colors.

Thank you guys.

I love those armored looks of the NPC characters, and I thought I could archive this for some of my Boffs too.

The NPCs seem to use (if they aren't wearing armour) the standard type 1 colour for their particular career, with no changes.
