# 1 Maco ground armor question..
11-15-2012, 06:25 PM
So it was said that the visuals were changing on the ground gear. Does that mean we can no longer access the look of the old maco armor? Or do we now just have more visual options? I dont have a set yet, so i wouldnt know.

Nothing has changed for me, full Mark 12 set here, visuals and options are the same on Omega and Maco

When you equip the Mk XI gear, you can enable armor appearance just like you would on any other piece of armor. This will show you wearing the very basic costume, with the metal vest but no helmet, shoulder armor, or gauntlets.

The Mk XII will show you wearing the full armor when enabled.

Now, though, you have to complete a separate costume project in order to actually edit the appearance. I believe you still have to own the full Mk XII set, as well as complete some accolades, in order to unlock access to this project.

Anyone who had previously unlocked the costume options before S7 still keeps them, though.

Most notable among these new prizes are the following Space and Ground Sets:

Adapted MACO Ground and Space Set

o These sets of gear will reflect the same stats currently available only on the Klingon Honor Guard equivalents.

o Visuals of the Space Set will be the same as the existing Mk XII MACO Space Set

o Visuals of the Ground Set will be an entirely new variant of the existing Mk XII MACO Ground Armor

The above is what i was refering to. They are stating the ground set has entirely new visuals. does that mean we wont be able to aquire the older visuals if we want?

It's a new set.

The old MACO is still available.

They essentially gave the Honor Guard set to the Feds, and the MACO set to the KDF.

The new Fed set has the same stats as the Honor Guard set, while having a variation of the MACO appearance. That's all.
