Basically, the FedRom uniforms all suck, trying too hard to be Firefly. But the KDFRom uniforms are masterpieces once you add some colour to them. I use Red-Purple and Blue-purple for tac and sci respectively (maintaining the established colour code, but making them interesting - and dark). For engis I use a dark green.
I use the metallic colours, gold and silver to designate rank groupings. Gold for command, silver for non-command boffs.
However, the KDFRom boots for the women are injuries waiting to happen, so I use miners' boots for everyone.
Unfortunately, the devs haven't gotten around to giving us security escorts and ship crew with uniforms other than the butt-fugly FedRom ones.
If we had a Romulan nemesis uniform option in the C store. I'd spend zen for it no question. However I fear that cryptic has released all the costumes that Romulans' are going to have access too. Heck I'd even enjoy seeing a C store option for the Romulan TAS uniforms shown in the old cartoon.
Not a fan of the Federation colour set either... but another big thanks to the OP for the work and updates!
I figure a good workaround for not using the Fed colours is:
- yellow for standard officer BOFFs (most Republic NPCs are in that colour, so it must be officer's standard colour)
- dark green / logistics for department head BOFFs
- admiral's green for my character
We see the freedom of New Romulus. We will live. We will soar. We are Romulan!
Yeah, I hope when Thomas the Cat gets around to doing Republic uniform guides (I hope he's still planning on doing this), the divisional colors will go away. That said, I do like the blue variant of the uniform, but I'd rather see the yellow/brown be standard for all divisions.
The game sort of agrees on your coloration by rank. Commander Jarok wears a greener jacket than the standard Republic NPCs, and Keretek wears vivid green:
