I was about to add some new Dialogue in my Foundry mission and found out that I no longer can use Ship Costumes!

Why was this taken out???




Cryptic, could you PLEASE put it back in?

Actually... it's not that hard to work around. You can create ground costumes that look like ship costumes and use those in dialogues.

Could you please share details on this workaround?


Use to be that if you made a custom ship costume, it was available as a dialogue contact. So if there is a way to get that back, by all means.

I noticed this as well. I used to be able to select a Galaxy-class starship for a dialogue contact, now it doesn't even list any of the space related costumes.

If this is by accident, dunno what you did Cryptic, but it should be fixed

If this is intentional, please undo this "improved" function. It doesn't benefit the authors, who are trying to create interesting and creative missions.

Yes, accident or not, be nice if it could be put back in.

Given all the problems with bugs lately, might be a Foundry related bug.

Simple version:
1: create a ship costume that looks like the space contact and save it. Use either the export costume button in foundry or the costume save button in the shipyard.

2: create a new ground costume

3: use the load costume button to load the previously saved ship costume to the ground costume.

Now you have a ground contact that LOOKS like a space contact. There's a variety of potential uses for this, but one big one is that you can use it in dialogue boxes.

That's simple. Once you have a ground costume that looks like a ship you can take any ground contact and reskin(change costume) them to look like a ship.

I see. Any chance that this will work in long-term, or is someone going to crack down on this too?
