Some players seem to be nicely costumed and outfitted. Me, and some others, are all in the boring "Armor Look" you get when you put on the alloy suits. I went to the tailor and couldn't seem to get my clothes to change.
To show my uniform, seems I have to take off the armor. That doesn't make sense to me; I would think STO has some kind of costume slot thing where I can be seen wearing any jacket, pants, etc. What gives here ?
I found this out by accident, but was really glad they had this feature.
As far as outfits go, you know that you can modify your BOFF outfits as well, right?
Usually the changes are free, (the first one anyway) but it is just a small fee to change them later anyway.
Every time I promote one of them, I make sure to go in and change their rank insignia so they are wearing the correct pips. Since I change mine every promotion I get, I felt it wouldn't be "fair" not to change theirs.
I actually designed my own "ship" uniforms that all my BOFFs wear.
The color varies only slightly based on job description.
Wasn't aware that ship parts did the same thing.
That may explain why my ship suddenly took on an extra shiny "mirrored" look recently.
Not that I am complaining, but it wasn't the one I chose, so I will have to check and see if I can "disable" it.
Although, it does look pretty sporty...
