When is this done and for who ?

Because I saw a developer say you need all 3 pieces AND you have to unlock the costume project before you can edit your outfit.

But is that for your boff's or does it include yourself too ?
I saw a guy in omega with some red on it just last night on tribble (doubt he was t5), so if you have the 3 pieces can you still edit it at tier 0 ?

This has me royally concerned because I'd hate to see everyone looking exactly the same in teh new season :/

The direct gear visual of MACO/Omega/KHG is now the default special costume look and you can turn this on/off directl on you character/boff paperdoll. YOu get this option as soon as you get the armor piece.

The customizable tailor option won't change. You unlock it with complete XI/XII sets and need to set the appearance as a uniform in a costume slot. this option is not available for boffs.

Yep - no customization options of any kind for the Boffs - it's either on or off.

Well if you go into t5 it clearly states "Costume unlock projects".

You recon those don't do anything ?

I don't have the quote but a developer said you have to get all 3 pieces then do the costume unlock to edit it.

But I don't know, is why I am asking

That refers to different version of the costume pieces.

Right now there is the Mk XI base look which you unlock by getting a complete XI set.

Then you have a base XII look.

Then you have a modified XII look which, atm, you unlock by completing all ground optionals on Elite in addition to getting the full Mk XII set.

I think the T5 unlock you are referring to, is the former accolade unlock (which will make the optionals a bit more pointless)

No, the ground optionals are still required to unlock what is called type 3 in the new system - they are still there.

Type 2,3 and 3 are listed under the "costume unlock projects". The old being 2, 3 being optional and 4 being adapted.

Based on that the costume is locked even with 3 pieces - locked as in you can't edit it, only wear the standard version
