7 ships and 2 shuttles seems a bit much! It seems fairly obvious that bleeding the ship collectors dry of any extra money they will have. They should mix it up a bit more. Sure, there is that ugly jumpsuit and a ton of cross-faction consoles, some sort of Lobi set, etc. but I'd still like to see more and with diversity. Give us some Harry Mudd Android BO's with the big numbers around their neck. They could actually number them in the order they drop and have the numbers stay fixed. I am glad to see more Mirror Universe stuff personally. I do think they dropped the ball on a chance to capitalize on the Well's uniforms by putting them in the C-Store a week before the boxes went live. It's starting to look like the Vesta by the end of the September wasn't something Cryptic could deliver. The one ship I am really looking forward to and they can't even get it out for me to buy. That's not very good business in my personal opinion.
I have seen that post, although it was a long time ago. It was a great idea and we need mroe things from the series that are iconic but yet easy enough to include in an insignificant way to please Trek fans. Whether or not that outfit is useable on a BO or not remains to be seen.
And they $%#& well should allow Boffs to use it! They should allow Boffs to use all costumes if you've bought/earned it! That would make me so happy I would forgive Cryptic of their lockbox shenanigans and actually start buying costumes again!
I'd be so happy to have my own personal MACO team.
I do agree that costumes for your Captain need to be avaible for your entire crew. That would make personalizing your crew with a consistant uniform much easier. The special BO's they don't want you to alter though are more than likely the issue. The engine is so incredibly low-tech, that Cryptic can't separante the toon from the clothing. If they could, we would have locked BO's like the Jem'Hadar but his custome would be alterable.
In so many cases, the primative engine rears its ugly head. Ships are basically invisible rectangles with a design in them that extends well beyond the image we actually see, This is why betting ships close together for screenshops is a challenge. Some goes with just about any object in the game. The best example I can think of is the crates on the hover dolly by the tailor on ESD. Stand on the top of it and watch it move slightly up and down. When it moves up, your feet disappear into it but it it goes lower, you float slightly on it. On Granalda, you have NPC's walking off the trandsporter, into a corner, and right through the wall.
