# 1 Kit Graphics, not Romulan?
05-14-2013, 03:03 PM
So, I just started to notice, but the kit graphics for abilities do not seem to be "Romulan"

I.E. Suppressing fire's little holo overlay graphic is either red or blue depending on your allegiance.

That being said, the holo wrist computer is Romulan, but not the actual kit abilities themselves.

I'm going to make a guess but I assume the other two class' kits are the same. I.E. Chroniton's are either red or blue, turrets are either phaser or disruptor.

Please correct me if I'm wrong! If I'm not, I highly suggest that these abilities be tweaked to reflect that we are Romulan and not just a sub-faction of the KDF or Federation. We should have plasma turrets, green overlays and other Romulan themed kit aesthetics.

Anyone agree?

I noticed this as well, it also happens to the Captain abilities, such as Security Escort sending in Fed/KDF troops (with blue/red transporter effects) depending on alliance.

Seconded!

I agree and take it one more step we should get the abilities we have seen romulans use for the past 3 years

Yes.. I nearly posted about this but I ***** enuf as it is.

The other thing is that last play thru I was a fed. When I got to MX X level, the actual costume was Fed oriented. Bright Red and Blue. USA USA! Looked completely out of character and had severe clipping issues with Romulan shoulders and chest gear etc.

Some of the lower level ones are fairly generic and blend in.

But yes I totally agree. and the plus is that any changes would also go to the BOs.

Tacticalwise its mainly just coloring the effects but Im sure engys have model issues as well.

Yeah I was hoping for some Romulan kit gfx. I was shooting up some Tal Shiar and I saw some Klingon mines on the ground. First thing through my mind was, "Klingons? WHERE?!" and then backed away from the mines. Realized that I had allied with the KDF. Realized that those were my BOffs mines. Felt stupid lol.

I'm still bummed about Photonic Fleet.. and still tempted to find out what happens if a Romulan grinds high enough to unlock the skill without declaring an allegiance. I suspect it would just default to Federation stuff though..


Another amusing bit is that Veril starts with Phaser Turret Fabrication.. which deploys disruptor turrets if you ally with the Klingon Empire.

I'm hoping that this is all just temporary and they have some real kit graphics in the works, but somehow I doubt it and we'll just get this half baked stuff.

Is it truely that hard to change out some colors and then replace the various "pets" we have with Romulan ones? Romulan security, Plasma turrets, plasma mines (or just green ones ), New Romulan support drones would be nice as well.

Thalaron Seeking Drones, (sure there more evil radiation things)

Oh and please introduce Disruptor-Plasma Hybrid Energy Weapons beyond the ones from the mission "Smash and Grab" I want my D'Deridex Retrofit to have 6 of them beams, with Plasma Torps"
