I was just refering to all those unncessary lines and fragmentation that can be found on so many of cryptics uniforms, especially on the Veteran uniform it looks awful IMHO.

Even the so much praised Juptier uniforms feature them:

There is just too much stuff on that uniforms for my taste.

I am not against good looking textures, but i don't like that strange segmentations and stupid color restrictions on especially the jupiter uniforms.

If you are intersted please, be free to take a look at what i don't like about the Jupiter 3 uniform.

Live long and prosper.
