Player's have to re-buy these clothes from scratch each time the festival rolls around. You want to keep those clothes? Don't leave the zone.

Why couldn't an approach like that work for an STO social zone such as Risa? I'm sure there are other social zones where this method would also be appropriate to dress in the local color. But not clothes appropriate to wear any place else.

This is essetially the crux of the issue as I understand it. We would need some tech (that we don't have now) that would limit a costume to a specific map. If we had that, we could allow people to wear swimsuits and pixel clouds on Risa, but they wouldn't be able to run around ESD, or Unimatrix 1 with them on.

The problem is that we do not have that tech at the moment, and it has not been a priority to develop that.

But want to know what we would really want?

A Risa Beachware Outfit pack ( BOTH FED AND KDF)

why are orions the only ones who look properly dressed on Risa and the rest of us look like stuffy prudes.


I know one of my my toons would really rock a Grass skirt and coconut shell top..
( he's a little weird)

and sunglasses... we would like sunglasses too.

The third item in that set could be a blackout mask, or a bucket, for anyone stood nearby.....

What they want becomes more important than what I want when they are the paying customers and I am the one being paid to make them happy.

..just think if orion females where a C-store purchase only thing? cryptic would be rich.

Plus we can wear formale EVENING WEAR to fight the borg, what's their reasoning about that humm.
I have an alien lass in a very cute black dress, while she hacks the borg to death...

Not just the Dev's.

I like the idea, for Risa, but I'm in the camp of thinking it'd be daft to join an STF to find someone using a toon wearing a bikini.
