Devs, someone didn't do their homework when designing these costume parts. The jacket and skirts have a metallic trim which I'm guessing are meant to be latinum, however they are golden. Latinum is silver & is usually suspended within gold for ease of transposition.
It needs to be suspended in a material in order to be used, for currency and for plating items and for clothes.
Its gold because "latinum is usually suspended within gold"
Only once in the shows is it seen as liquid. Every other time(maybe hundreds in ds9) its always suspended in gold.
Its what people expect.
Actually it doesn't need to be suspended in gold to be used. It's only suspended (as in encased) in gold for "ease of transaction". During DS9 there were several latinum and latinum plated items and they were all silver or silver w/ an iridescent shimmer. All I'm saying is that what we have in the game, whether or not it's what people "expect", isn't accurate. At the very least they should give us access to the silver colors for the jacket so that we can CHOOSE whether or not to go w/ the gold or the accurate silver.
