Precisely. People told me in-game to look for that, and no such thing is present. It appears on my boff uniform screens, but it's greyed-out. As far as I'm concerned, Cryptic stole my money and gave me an ugly belt in return.

Cryptic hasn't stolen anything. If you are not seeing the button then one of two things is happening. 1. You are are trying to do it on your default (starting) costume slot or 2. You are experiencing a bug and should file a GM report in-game.

Beyond that, there is nothing us on the forum can do for you.

p.s. also try to be little less snarky in your replies. The way you've been going on it's a wonder people have bothered to help you as much as they have.

Please drop the bad attitude OP, everyone here on the forums is a player just like yourself. We are more than happy to help you, but we do this because we enjoy helping other players, hostility will not help you at all.

A new character starts out with two character slots when they enter the game. The first slot is the Uniform only slot and the second slot is a universal slot. The third costume slot is unlocked via joining a fleet. Slot four and beyond may be purchased via the cstore.

The mercenary outfit is considered an "Off duty" costume option, it cannot be slotted in costume slot number one, as this slot is reserved for Starfleet, Romulan Republic, or Klingon Defense Force uniforms only.

To change to the off duty section first go to any given tailor. Next, select slot two. If you only have one costume slot listed, click the create button. At the bottom Left corner of the screen, uncheck the box labeled "Show unowned costume parts". Now, at the center near the bottom of the screen, there is a subsection labeled "Advanced", click the button that is labeled "Head". Do not click this button more than once, as doing so will quickly open and close the "Advanced" window. At the very top of the Head advanced window, there is a dropdown that should say "Uniform". Click this and shift it over to "Off duty". Now, down in the advanced section, click on "Uniform" and add in the mercenary pieces to your character as you see fit.

Good luck to you.

Unbelievable. If you guys are incapable of understand simple concepts, why do you even bother replying? You keep repeating the same useless information after I already said that it doesn't work. Go troll someone else.

My general response is get over yourself OP

Maybe the information was useless, but everyone has so far been TRYING to help, but you've only been hostile. Is it a misunderstanding? Yes.

If it our fault? No, because part of the blame is on you for not clearly expressing what the problem was. You may have thought it was clear, but does it really look that way now?

If all you wanted to do was pizz & moan, You should have indicated that in yer first post more clearly...,

Then nobody would have bothered trying to help you to begin with.

If you were looking for a way to be a [REDACTED], then you accomplished your goal.
