I'm probably strange in the Foundry. I spend about as much time trying to customize characters I'm creating in the Foundry as alimac30 probably spends on a map.
My characters certainly aren't as cool as anything alimac30 makes with a map, but that's beside the point.
Point is, I devote a LOT of time making each and every character I place on a map "right". To me, it would be like trying to make a Superman movie but not caring to make sure your casting and costuming is flawless.
So you can understand my frustration every time I go to make a character and realize I don't have access to, you know, certain uniforms we've had access to in game for over a year. Jupiter uniforms, TOS uniforms, what have you.
What I'm additionally confused about is that we seem to have a PORTION of the uniform, but not the whole. Like, why do we have Academy Heels but not Academy Skirts or Jackets? What makes shoes easy but jackets hard?
Also, additionally, I believe we ought to have full ability to customize not just Federation or KDF factioned species, but every species in the game. I ought to be able to customize the face and clothing of a Romulan if I need to. The way the Foundry character customize is currently was fine pre-sliders. But once we got the freedom to customize some looks, we should have gotten the freedom to customize ALL the looks of ALL characters we might use in the Foundry.
Think of it this way, we're making mission content just like the STO devs, but we're expected to just not worry about villain or NPC customization in the process. Isn't that a bit ridiculous?
Everyone who works in the Foundry has their own idea of what the priorities should be, and as long as STO's Foundry dev team consists of an ... well ... one guy, I understand things are going to happen slowly.
That doesn't make it OK, mind you. It just means I understand.
Nonetheless, I think this should become the next priority outside of adding assets.
I am a Cheestah.
