The Bank is well stocked. The dust is beginning to settle. The annoying squeek from deck 3 has finally been sorted.
Ten Forward fleet members, now has come the time to select our new uniform! SaintHazard managed the old contest, but seeing as that fleet is now (to us) dead, it seems appropiate as the 'lurker' in comparison to the normal admins does it. Well, it'll give me an excuse as an Admin to do something useful!
It can be any uniform in the game that's accessible to everyone. This does not include the WoK, TNG (Series) or TOS uniforms which must be bought.
Your uniform entry MUST be an actual uniform. No off-duty clothes.
You are limited to ONE entry only. If you are posting multiple uniform styles, please specify the EXACT one you are submitting. You may not change your mind after you have specified your submission.
You many submit multiple uniforms for different departments, e.g. Command, Science, Engineering etc.
You are free to use whatever combadge you wish as most people will have their preferred version that they use.
You may post as many screenshots as you deem appropiate, but it will not affect judgement.
Screenshots of the tailor window giving colour schemes are recommended so that me or one of the fellow admins may re-create the uniform for the fleet, exactly as you have done.
The contest runs from now (10/04/2011) for the period of 2 weeks (25/04/2011) as I will allow an extra 'day' due to the fact I am European and most members are American.
Non-fleet members are also invited to submit their entries.
So fly, fly my pretties and go off tailoring!
Now that the time to submit entries is over, please go to the polling station and vote!
Here's mine. The uniform is Starfleet-1-B top, TNG Split bottom, and Combat Boots with a gold combadge and ranking emblems. A varient of this uses the Wrath of Khan belt.
The main color of the top uniform, the pants, and the main portion of the boots are the same. The outiline of the uniform and the sides of the boots are the same color. If using the belt, the color of the belt itself is the same color as shoulders and bottom of the boots. The buckle is 4 Left of center yellow, or closest match to gold of the emblem. Both will be my entry. If requested, I'll work up another version so thy can be used as Tactical/Science/Engineering uniforms.
The below links are the belted and unbelted varients of the uniform, both of which are in different colors to illustrate how the colors correspond with each of the parts mentioned above.
Here's mine. There a a few varients with it with color differences and a belt, but they're the same design ony with pallet swaps. I'll add blue varients this evening. My image of it has the TMP pants on it

Actually the uniforms won't necessarily have to be recreated from scratch by an Admin.
The winner will be able upload a saved uniform file to the fleet uniform tab if the character has permission to change fleet uniforms, which can be easily setup no matter what fleet rank they are. Uniforms actually have to be uploaded from a saved file or directly from what a character is wearing anyhow.
Since most of us command a starship, we would be using the Red Command uniform. I will however also post some variants I use on my crew and others may want to use as their uniform if they want to be a bit more specialized or do not want to be Command.
The top is the TNG movie, which was one of the base uniforms available from launch. I was really fond of the combined look of the dark blue and tan on the KDF side uniforms I did so I went with that for the fed side as well. The shirts under the jacket are used to show the three basic Fed departments. . . Command, Operations, and Sciences.
The bottoms are the standard TNG series pants in black and the shoes are the 'soft' boots.
If you're unsure which pieces can be used for fleet uniforms anything that has an Atari token next to them whether checked or not cannot be used for fleet Uniforms. Also the names of the base pieces that everyone has access to are tinted light blue in the costume editor.
The Wrath of Kahn Uni may be an exception, but I'm not sure on that. . . I'll do a quick check in a bit to see if the pieces can be used or not.
Update: Wrath of Kahn Uniform pieces are not allowed to be loaded on a fleet uniform.
