So I think the Romulan Republic and the Romulan-Federation Uniforms look really nice. All I ask is that I be able to make a relatively standard uniform across all of my bridge officers. Also, if it isn't too much to ask could we have the ability to display the rank of our bridge officers on their uniform?
I would understand that this might not be too important to the KDF who do not really have standardized uniforms, but it would only make sense to me that a Romulan officer operating within Starfleet would have to have at least some form of a standardized uniform for their crew. Otherwise, I'm really liking the Romulan faction.
...there is a standardized uniform. The Romulan Republic one. Heck, every new non-story bridge officer you get comes with one.
What I think is missing is a outfit preset. You get presets for the characters at character creation, but it gets confusing to new players when they're told by Temer that they've been given access to the Republic Uniform, and yet when they go see the tailor said uniform is not part of their presets.
Several Youtube videos of Romulan testers just starting out pretty much resolved themselves to be "check tailor, don't see uniform, leave" which had me grind my teeth and wish they'd just check into Advanced options.
Point is, Cryptic could've made it more obvious, and getting the uniform in the presets would be ideal for that. It'd also be handy for consistent colors - that way you know the preset colors matches the colors of all the other NPCs wearing the Romulan Republic uniform for sure.
What I am saying is that the uniform pieces are not the same across genders and that in part makes it difficult to do a ship wide uniform. In particular, I am talking about the Federation-Romulan Uniform, but I would also appreciate an outfit preset. At least with a preset I can make something that resembles a ship wide uniform.
I understand that we are allied with the Federation and not actually members, but still I think it makes sense that Starfleet would expect some form of standards for uniform in a crew of a ship that has Starfleet officers aboard. I'm not saying that everyone has to play it this way, I am just saying that it should be an option.
I don't have any Starfleet officers on my ship, except when there's a systems bug that replaces one of my boffs with a generic Starfleet officer. Also, I would like the option of the Romulan uniform from Nemesis. The devs put a lot of effort into the costumes, it's a real quality work, sincerely, but they're too busy, too patchy and not uniform looking at all.
It seems that the winter event jacket was the foundation of the Republic uniform. Too many patches and flaps and tapers that ride up and show the undershirts at the waist. Just my own opinion here, it's just not appealing to me. The fact that I have to ally with any other faction is incidental, so I'm not interested in their uniforms, tech or any other non-Romulan trifles on my Romulan toon. This extends to costume pieces.
