Yep, in addition the script for "...Nor the battle to the strong" also specifically refers to the wounded chappy in the minefield as a soldier, as opposed to a starfleet security officer. The problem is that beyond that, there are no canon sources, and only a couple of very vague soft-canon sources; everything else is fanfic. I'll be interested to see what Blackavaar comes up with, some of the other examples out there are...questionable, to say the least

Woot, the SFMC has always been a favorite bit of speculation to me. It will be nice to see what you conjure up.

MACOs should be in STO sometimes after Season 4.

Black, they're adding probably around 2 to 3 variants of original MACOs uniforms not sure at that.

My computer is back up and running strong again. I've completed my lighting tests for the Jupiter Uniforms and have taken most of the screen shots I need. All I have to do is assemble them into guides now. Keep watching. They'll be up soon.

They're on my board too. Don't worry. I didn't forget you.

Glad to hear it, and I look forward to seeing them.

The devs are delivering more uniforms! 2409 cadet uniforms this time! Check out Daniel Stahl's Twitter entry here: http://twitter.com/#!/Cryptic_dStahl and here's the pic of character artist J-Nas working on the uniform: http://yfrog.com/z/5p9b9aj

Here's hoping that they'll be made available in the C-Store and not just seen being worn by background characters strolling around the Academy.

Do you have any idea how to solve those issues?

Especially the Jupiter 3 uni, that is at least a bit inventive (and the sole reason i bought that uniform pack) IMHO, has such stupid errors.


Live long and prosper.

Nice! Actually I would hope that those would become free additions so that they can be the default uniforms for starting characters, since they will be starting out at the academy now.

I am a bit disappointed in the Jupiter 03 uniform as well. I think that the upper trim you have labeled A should actually be colored along with the lower trim, instead of the main chest area. That way the leather sheen they gave it would not be such a problem unless you specifically colored it so. The only way I have found to make it look good is to keep the chest area in black and dark grays and color the shoulders for the divisions, like the C-Store image. The belt thing on the male version is a bit ridiculous though. It doesn't look completely horrible, but I do like the way the belt actually goes over it on the female version. Hopefully they'll do a touch up on that uniform at some point in the future.

Yeah, that would help a bit.
Coloring a big part of the uniform in Shiny black leather... i don't know if like my captain to run around like that, to be honest.
I don't know what the devs have been thinking when making that uniform, lol.

Maybe i'll just take the belt and make a "Yesterday's Enterprise" Mock up uniform for myself.

EDIT:
Btw, the TNG series Uniform has the same problem at the collar, it's much brighter than the choosen color.

What do they think when doing stuff like that?
EDIT:
Another thing i noticed about the TNG uniform. The Female variants collar (A) seems to be the same color as (B).
http://i1100.photobucket.com/albums/...NGcolor002.jpg
Why is it brighter on the male variant?
Why can't the male variants have the same quality as the female variants?

I really would like to know what the devs have to say about that....
Live long and prosper.

That's a grand idea! I'm all for A) Actually sending new ship staff additions through the Academy to be trained and B) Free things.
