have you noticed that the default NPC uniform isn't even the default for the Player in character creation? My pet peeve is that you can immediatly tell who's a PC and who's an NPC, because no one uses the NPC style uniform. I think that the NPC's should have semi randomized uniforms, from all the available styles and color patterns, not just the basic NPC style, or at least they should wear the default player uniform.
I absolutely agree that you should be able to create a template, save it, and apply it with a single click to any character. In fact, an exact duplicate of the captain's uniform should be the default for all new BOs. No clicking.
I completely agree. We should be able to define a "Ship's uniform".. and have a special colour we can specify, where the standardized department colours will appear.
I'd also really like to see some way to make the "generic uniform" that you see people at Starbase 01 wearing. The default colours for that particular set of pants and uniform top don't even match the ones the NPC's are wearing... so there's a lot of guesswork to try and make your main character match the npc's. And there's so many variations on black and grey.. it's hard to know which colours the NPC's are using.
I don't even dare to get creative on my uniforms because I really have a hard time to remember all the settings and don't want to litter my desk(top) with notes as each of my captains has his/her own uniform.
