Andor is a pretty cold so auto winter variant. beam down to risa then a warm weather variant. that would add more to draw you into the story.

So I'm all for keeping the off duty set, but just let you use off duty in any of the uniform slots.
Problem with that is you're going to have a lot of players (like me) who don't use the designated "off duty" clothing for their (de facto) off duty outfits. I've got off duty outfits, but the game doesn't know that because I used uniform pieces. I can't manually flag an outfit as off-duty without being forcibly restricted to the (super-limited) designated off duty pieces.

I love the idea of a auto-switching feature for foundry authors, but it'd be a better implementation IMO to fold the off duty and uniform sets together as "general clothing" and make only the slots flaggable as off duty or not.
