Dunno if anyone pointed this out yet in this thread, but you get one free uniform change every time you level.
Also, as far as I can tell, they fixed the problem with other ranks showing....no more always showing Ensign pips.
I could be wrong, but in open beta, this was also true for your bridge officers when you can promote them. Haven't reach Lt. Commander yet with headstart so haven't been able to promote any of my bridge officers yet. Either that or I wasn't paying attention to the cost and just wanting to change the gawd awful uniforms the game randomly puts them in. haha
Instead of having the costume/tailor Rank dropdown options list as:
why not just have 2 settings: NONE or YES? Select "none" and no pips are displayed. Select "yes" and the number of pips appropriate to your current rank are displayed *automatically*. The ability for an admiral to go about wearing an ensign pip is a little silly, isn't it? Similarly, instead of making each Rank unlock a title, how 'bout a Choose Title option of "current rank" that would automatically display the toon's current Rank as their title?
Well, there is the question of the RP element involved in wearing lower ranks/titles. Some RP fleets may wish to have their members wear an internal rank, based on their level within their fleet, etc. So I can see the reason why it would be an available option.
looks like they fixed this. when you get promoted you get a free uniform change. At least I did last night after the last patch. now if they would do the same thing for the boffs when you promote them that would be swell.
