With the recent addition of the open neck uniform, I wondered if it might be possible to come up with another revision, one with short sleeves?

This is Kelly, one of my BOFFs.
Kelly Comparison

As the image shows, it is possible to have shorter sleeves.

But I want the image on the left to have the short sleeves, preferably t-shirt length, because I'm emulating a style of uniform specific to Kelly.

So, is it possible that one day, we may see an outfit revision with short sleeves?

I'd support this.

It's certainly POSSIBLE, but would require a bit of work. At the very least, the texture of the modern uniform will have to be applied to the old-style tshirt uniform, which may cause a problem since it is open at the neck. There may have to be a new uniform model designed which has short sleeves but that collar at the neck.

I have actually been looking into this in some detail, and basically there is a separate "skin" model for all the different uniforms that show skin. An open neck, exposed midriff, and exposed arms, each has their own individual "bit" that is fit together to form the uniform. I guess that's to eliminate clipping. So basically, it wouldn't just be a matter of substitution, I think a whole new uniform will have to be designed.

Personally, I'd be for this. I think in the canon most of the uniforms had long sleeves (you could just take off the jacket if you "had to get your hands dirty") but I think it should be a usable option, even if rarely used.

I fully support anything that adds additional options to our uniforms/costumes. As far as canon goes, I remember one specific instance of shorter sleeves. Before the DS9 crew switched to the First Contact uniforms in "Rapture," Chief O'Brien usually wore his uniform with the sleeves rolled up, which makes sense since he's usually crawling around the Jeffries Tubes.

Come to think of it, that would be another cool addition to the uniform options... :p

I agree would like this option and shouldn't be to hard the skin textures are already there with the mirror universe things.

Must say though think about how much work cryptic would have saved themselves if they just had said you are in a military and this is the uniform you get
