Just a small update in case there are any devs who read these threads.

I recently decided to purchase a lifetime subscription to STO in addition to purchasing the LARGE ($50+ per month) amount of Zen every month that I have been doing for the last year. I believe in supporting STO and the people making it and I believe that support should involve my financial contributions.

I hope the devs who read these posts understand that it's not just whining F2Pers asking for game/art improvements like these.

Players who are actually spending a large amount of our pay checks are trying to get the devs to incorporate changes that will improve the game ... even if it's just improving the player "immersion" by making it possible to customize the uniforms for the rest of the crew.

I would be on board for an adding of this to the game. BTW us free to play aren't whiny, we just are lower on cash to spend on games than those who are gold plated and lifers. I ground for a week nostop to get 24th century Romulan uniform because that was what I wanted and every time I want something I'll grind for and that is the experience I've accepted in exchange for lacking money.

Another bump.

I'm a returning player from about a year ago (I played at launch) and am surprised this still isn't in game. I think the OP had a great solution - have the game pick the uniforms from your bridge crew (though I'd say not from your character's, and only from your currently active bridge crew).

The game already sets uniform colour by department, so let it instead match a crew member's uniform to that of the brige officer in the matching department.

Making the crew's uniforms match the player's boffs' outfits might cause a few issues. For instance, what if the player's only tac boffs are a Jem'Hadar and a Breen? Would all their tactical/security department crew have Jem'Hadar or Breen uniforms? Or would they instead default to what we have now? And what if the player's only sci boffs are a Borg and a Reman? I think you all get what I mean.

I think it'd be better if we could just customize the crew's uniforms by department, independent of the player's boff's uniforms.

In any case, I love the idea, even if it would mean having all my tactical crew in Breen uniforms.

I will not surrender!

yeah this i think would be best, since my Boff crew are wearing a ' head of department' uniform, with a metalic strip along the Department colour / main uniform transition line

i would prefer to be able to have this distinction avalible to me IF the feature is added

Perhaps it's just me, but the "majority" of the uniforms are designed to be worn as "sets", with minor variations of color to indicate department.

Remember Blackavaar's color guides? How in the end it's all "one set of uniform colors" with the different departments marked in the "departmental color"?

Well, same here. Create one uniform, mandatory pants, and add a block to the color picker that says "department color". Combined with a table that lets you pick the department color - one for each of the 7 "departments" on the DH screen, and if the uniform uses multiple pallets then one block per pallet - and suddenly 75% of your crew (all males and the 50% of females that prefer pants) are dressed. Have a "subset" off the main uniform to create an optional skirt variant, and the remaining crew is dressed...

Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...

Very good point. I was hoping for a simple fix, but I can see how that would cause a problem. I guess we really do need to be able to edit them separately, which is more tricky and probably why it hasn't been prioritised.

Or maybe a method of allowing you to set a specific bridge officer to use as the template for each department. Perhaps where you set the department heads, a second picklist for each to allow you to set who to use for the uniform (defaulting to department head).

Still, that could cause the same potential issue I mentioned earlier.

Instead, it could be set up so that the crew of each department would, rather than using a boff's outfit, use one of the player's saved outfits, similar to how one would add a fleet uniform to their fleet. Basically the same result as being able to customize the crew's department's uniforms directly.

The player would just open up the tailor for one of their character's outfits (or one of their boffs' outfits), make up the uniform they want for a particular department of their crew, save it, and then load the uniform to their crew's specific department. And then repeat for the crew's other departments.
