Hells to the yes, it's ridiculous that I can't outfit officers on my own crew with my own faction's uniforms, and if it's just a simple database issue by all means, get some intern on it right now.

Well, I'm perfectly happy dressing my Diplomatic Orions in their native (lack of) garb

Now, if I could dress my Marauding Trill in an Orion outfit? Oh yeah

Yeah, you have a point with Orions, if I wanted a green skinned slutty human in SF uniform I could just get an alien BOFF. But Gorn etc. would look nice in SF uniforms

If you are having an issue, could you let me know:

Your Captain's faction

Your Captain's species

Species of bridge officer that you are having problems with

Description of issue
Captain: Orion chick KDF

BOff: Human Sciece

Can't edit a damn thing on the cotume; not even the makeup / hairstyle. THe options all appear in the list at the tailor but as soon as you click on anything it resets all the values. So you can 'look' a what it would look like but you can't change anything. No even the colours.

Description of issue
Kdf Lethean (race place holder) female, can not do any changes in the tailor. This officer is from the Marauder Accoldade. Captains name is Painful Deth Foru.


P.S. separate issue for him is that sometimes the fire buttons on the main skill bar box disappear and i have to call up the main weapon box which i normally have hidden. He is in an Orion Marauder.

Sad to see this thread is 4 months old and problem still not solved, and nothing from the Devs since that one post back in January.

I just made Marauding 4 on Wednesday, but I think I'm going to hold off on selecting my BOFF until this is fixed.

I think the problem all around may relate to the fact that Marauding BOs are technically all new species.

Because of the way factions work, they can't just drop an existing human into the KDF faction. They have to create a new species, a Klingon Empire Marauding Human. (I assume they specified Marauding to leave open the possibility of Klingon humans or Ferengi through other means while flagging Marauding BOs as "group unique" once that tech is installed, which may allow dismissing and reclaiming these BOs at the vendor down the road.)

What this means is that it's effectively a brand new species with copy-pasted permissions for things like traits, skills, and costume data. At present, this means that the permissions don't allow dressing up the marauding BO in a KDF uniform but also aren't properly allowing for an off-duty outfit, which was changed in the S5 code merges and is faction specific. This created issues that would not have existed if they were just allowed to wear Starfleet uniforms like their corresponding diplomatic counterparts.

All in all, I can say with some certainty that the simplest but least satisfying short term fix would be to flag these BOs to use KDF uniforms and, longterm, work on the tech to allow a costume slot dropdown that gives some BOs access to off duty costumes. (A side benefit might be that Diplomatic BOs could get Starfleet uniforms in the future and Cryptic could do cool things in the future like having MACOs with the option to wear MACO gear.) I'll also note that this does very little for non-customizable BOs like the Breen or Reman as those costumes are architecturally different, not being player costumes.

What would people think about that as a quickfix? Having Marauding BOs wear KDF uniforms for now with a longterm goal of allowing Marauding BOs to wear off-duty costumes and Diplomatic BOs to wear Starfleet uniforms?

I realize I'm speaking for Cryptic but I've intuited a lot about their engine and database architecture.
I'd prefer letting Marauding boffs wear Starfleet uniforms as well as above mentioned stuff while Diplomatic ones can wear Starfleet uniforms and their KDF ones! (I have a Klingon captain who I'd like to 'translate' into a Diplomatic boff, however it's impossible to make a Klingon Diplomatic boff D: )

Your Captain's faction:
KDF (aka: the unwanted faction)

Your Captain's species
Orion

Species of bridge officer that you are having problems with
Trill (Sci)

Description of issue
Like everyone else, you can't change any appearance option. If you move a slider, it instantly resets to the default.

...

Why not give us Starfleet outfits, at least? Forget the off-duty thing. Didn't Riker keep his Starfleet pajamas when he was detailed to the KDF?

Captain's faction: KDF

Captain's species: Orion female (tactical)

Species of bridge officer: Andorian female (engineer)

Description of issue: Received renegade bridge officer from Rank 4 Marauding. Unable to change officer's appearance, immediately goes back to default. Only options that the editor allows me to change are height and stance. But even those can't be purchased as I always get a pop-up window (even if I didn't change anything) telling me that I need to buy one or more bundles from the C-Store to apply the selected options (even if there are no C-Store-items selected). The window in question doesn't show any bundles to choose from though. ALSO: I noticed that if I previously was editing one of my other boffs the unwanted reset does not change to the default but copies the other boff's options as far as possible.
