Need help in testing something....

I created an alt and skipped the Tutorial and added a mailed Reman to the crew.

The costume option is called Reman Neutral.

This uses the "normal" Romulan palette

I dont have the wear with all to play thru the levels again but I am wondering if once you pick a side if the palette changes to the limited one.

I VERY strongly feel that we should have ONE consistant Romulan palette regardless of the faction we are forced to pick.

Its one of those little things that pointlessly reducing the "Romulan" factor and only serves to remind us we arent an actual faction.

I want the orginal palette we have when we start. Not a limited one.

This could also just be a KDF issue. I have not played a Fed aligned since they added the limited palette. If that is the issue then its even less fair that KDF aligned should have fewer options than Fed aligned simply because the Klingons have a limited palette. We arent klingons!.

It just makes no sense some of our items can be one color but then another cant.

As I keep saying I know its possible because I was using those colors a week ago and have screenies to prove it.

Then there are the issues with Sela's cape not matching the rest of her uniform and clipping.

So judging by that formal dress shot, am I to understand that Female Romulans have no cleavage?

Speaking of Cleavage, where is the Klingon ladies' war dress with the epic Duras sisters Kleavage window?

I'm a firm believer that you should never have anything taken away.

If you start with the Republic color pallet and then go Fed, then you should have the Romulan pallet and the Fed Pallet (far be it too revolutionary for us to simply have all the colors). If you go Fed then no you shouldn't get the Klingon designated pallet, but no matter what you shouldn't lose the colors you started with.
Yes I support This

I've noticed that survivor romulan 01 jacket causes clipping with most belts, I mean they are hidden under lower lapel while stuff attached to belt clips through - it looks bad

second thing, and I believe subject was spoken about many times already - coloration needs serious fixes, not only limiting colors to pastel is bad thing, changing color range on left/right costume elements - seriously, pleas fix that and give us more natural gamut to work with, my sight hurts when I see those eye-biting pinks and greens and such

Can we get an option on the Romulan shoulder pads to omit the dangling drapery?

Well I can see how some might not like it, most likely response will be...just dont equip the shoulders....

Myself, I saw where they went with it...it had that TOS feeling with the original uniforms we saw and I rather like it...actually id prefer if the drapery was longer and more squared off to have that almost TOS look but with the newer uniforms...

It also delved back to the Roman style (since thats where romulans came from idea wise)

What I want to know is...wtf is all the clothing options for us?

You know..the ones that every bloody romulan npc can wear but not us...plus the damn Romulan Fed allied skirts??? Its in the picture when you choose kdf or fed...so where is it??? I want to know how bad it will clip with stuff so we can fix it before launch in oh....5 days

You know what got me...

I was at the bank at DS9 and looked over and there were these Super cool looking Romulans. Thought at first they were some kind of promo/preview thing. Then it clicked in that those were the "escorts" you can buy with rep.

Those Romulans looked cool and didnt have cargo pockets and scarves.

Would love to have those options.

And really as time has gone by I have grown to dislike the "Republic" outfits. All I can think of when Im surrounded by my crew on my ship is that I am at some hotel banquet and there are 100s of cater waiters.

You can change their uniforms, you know. First thing I did when I made my second test Romulan after the server wipe was mess with uniforms once I recruited Satra. Don't know if you can stick your crew in the Tal Shiar outfit, but you can at least get them into the Republic uniforms if their informal attire offends you that much.

... of course, given your rather blunt views, I doubt that would be much of an improvement for you if the Tal Shiar uniforms aren't an option for bridge officers.

I feel very strongly and started a break thread on this issue.

Below is a screen shot of my palette choices. The top is what I start with. Below that is what my options are after alignment

http://postimg.org/image/v608quyxd/

I understand WHY Klingons have a limited palette and pretty much agree with the intent behind it.

But as a Romulan I AM NOT A KLINGON. I am only a Klingon because I was FORCED to make a choice I didnt want to make.

We have no Klingon costume options - which is good because when those were avaialble it was pissing me off - short pink alien romulans in Klingon outfits. I shutter. Since we have no Klingon options there is no reason to force a Klingon palette on us. If there are Klingon options then those can use the Klingon palette. Fine with that.

But we shouldnt have ROMULAN options changed because of alignment. I believe most of us want as little to do with our "allies" as possible. Its a choice we make and then quickly try and forget. When you are forced into a Klingon paradigm whether its missions or clothes then its just a constant reminder that we arent actually a faction.

Give feds fed stuff. Give Klingons Klingon stuff and let Romulans be Romulans.

To me this is just as bad as our forced Scowl when we aligned Klingon. Pointless, unnecessary and immersion breaking

My BOs and myself will never wear the Republic uniform since none of us are part of the Republic. I was refering to the generic crew that spans on your ship in beige cater waiter jackets.

Way ahead of you. My BOs were redone head to toe the minute they joined up and made to look Romulan.

Since the Tal Shiar outfits are the only actual Romulan attire available, that what my crew wears.

But because of the Palette issues they are limited to Dark Red or Dark Blue..

In my cynical opinion things are being done to more or less force us into the devs vision of drab grey, cargo pockets and scarves by making other choices less than appealing.

I haven't noticed any of that, other than when you have two collars clashing, but I do see armor doesn't show up, even when not hidden. Or is it supposed to be that way? Or perhaps armor is worn under clothing?
