Actually the silver with the gold sheen looks more accurate to me, since in many of the TOS episodes the stripes appear a more faded gold, as if the uniforms were being washed too often.
And the cool gray looks more accurate to me. It works better with the different lighting effects in the game, taking on the proper tones at the proper time.
Those are an effect of the lighting. As mentioned above I think the cool gray I've chosen works best with the lighting in the game.
You use the same grey i do and i think most of my department colors are the same or very close to yours. The Science/Medical are the only ones that bug me because they never quite look right. I think it has something to do with the games engine and color palette, but maybe it's just me. It's always interesting to see someone elses take on things.
Oh i use the TNG movie Uniform on all my characters and Bridge officers.
