# 1 Costume Slot request
08-05-2010, 08:04 PM
I'm wondering if we can have the c-store costume purchases include the option for off-duty wear aswell as the current uniforms.

Failing that, can we get some off duty costume slot purchases added to the c-store?

While I would prefer the slots to just be switchable between Uniform and Causal, I would accept being able to buy Casual slots from the C-Store as a close second.

Actually, when the additional costume slots became available for full account purchases, you could do either off-duty or uniforms in them by a selection in the uniform screen (no mixing and matching though). They quickly "fixed" this however... I'd like to see this changed back, give me a reason to purchase the up-comming casualwear please... thanks!

yeah, that would be really nice, I had a really cool green Wraparound outfit that I had to ditch to use the new formal wear.

I support this. And obviously, it's still somewhat bugged. I just hopped on an alt and created a new costume -- all I did was select one of my C-Store costume slots and then hit "Purchase," without making any modifications -- and now it seems I can freely change that costume between uniform and off-duty.

It should be this way for all C-Store purchased slots.

Unfortunately, I must not have triggered the bug on my main since none of her new costume slots can be switched.

But being able to freely switch the slot between uniform and off-duty is the way it should be. Please make it so and retroactively fix all characters/slots affected (or rather, not affected) by the "bug."

Barring that, if Cryptic really must sell off-duty slots on the C-Store, they should at least be slightly cheaper and sold as singles.

ZerothAngel ... I actually think the bug is when you can't choose between on and off-duty since I've heard they had the choice when they tested the extra slots on the Tribble test server.

Either way we need to be able to select between them whenever we want.

I reckon it could work in one of two ways:

- You can choose whether a slot acts as a regular slot or an off-duty one, with only the appropriate options for each. Obviously, it'd be better to have an option to 'convert' slots back-and-forth - perhaps a tab for it? So, in the same way as choosing between 'Lower - Long' or 'Lower - Knee-High', you could choose between 'Uniform' and 'Off-Duty'.

- Have all options in the one slot, so you could choose to mix-and-match regular and off-duty parts. I'm sure this would be a popular choice, because it'd increase the possibilities for players, but I personally think that'd be a bad idea - keep 'uniform' parts for uniforms, and 'off-duty' for non-uniform clothing*.


*that said - one concession I can think of would be combadges. I'd be nice to do the time-honoured Star Trek thing of people putting their badge on over their civvies.
