Over the last month or so I've been having increasing problems with customizing the appearance of my BOFFs as for some mysterious reason different pieces of the costumes have been linked so that when you change a color option on one it changes the corresponding (if one exists) color option on all the linked pieces. And the number of them that have been linked together has been increasing. At one point in time it was just certain gloves and belts - and only occassionally for some reason - now it's extended to the point where when I'm trying to modify a KDF BOFF it affects gloves/hands, gauntlets, chest armor, shoulder pads, belts, and even jackets.
The weirdest thing about it is that this linking of parts has not extended to any of my Captain characters. I can mix and match parts and colors to the extent that those colors and parts are available to my captains. If I want to have one gauntlet that's blue and one that's red? I can do that with my captain still, but not my BOFFs.
