Hello, I just purchased the Risian explorer outfit, and it seems to have unlocked for my character the beachcomber pants, and I noticed some issues while playing with it that I wanted to bring up.
First off, the texture of the barefoot option, Feline Basic, doesn't blend well with the caitian fur leg texture, there is a noticeable difference between the two textures, and in game the feet are noticeably brighter than the legs, especially at night.
Geometry wise, I noticed that there is some deformation in the foot at the bottom of the shin, there is a slight indent and it looks rather unnatural. As well, there is a visible seam where the foot model meets the end of the leg, at least in the costume creator when one leg is in a shadow.
Overall I do like the look of the costume, though it seems to be made of a shiny material, when I think a matte one would be more appropriate, even the pants look like they are made of leather instead of khaki or denim.
I found a plot hole! NURSE!

Reason: Added image links.
manzalot spams every thread that mentions feet, ignore him.
As I explained in the thread about trill feet, and various threads about the trill collar, this is probably because the foot texture is a different resolution from the thigh texture. I've worked with High res 3d models of people in other programs, and even at that res it is extremely difficult to match a pattern between two textures. The game models are a much lower res, making things infinitely more difficult. Obviously, with the Trills, they could mask it by fading out the pattern before the feet, but clearly that's not possible with caitians.
I don't know what's causing Biidi's issue, I've used skirts and things on caitians before without problems.
Oh for cryin' out loud I'm an idiot, did not even notice that option AT ALL.
Onto the topic of the thread, I'll definitely be taking rikev's advice and turning Keitti into a hippie. Had to do kinda the same with my ferasan and the winter jacket making a highly visible neck seam.
