I want my BOs to look right. I made a few mistakes the first time on a few of them. However a few simple changes would literally cost me ALL OF MY ENERGY CREDITS for just one of them.
I changed one guy and I didn't expect it to be THAT EXPENSIVE otherwise I would have been serious. It's ridiculous. At this point I'd rather spend 100 freakin' merits on a new person and customize them for free...
Man, yall are so vain. Me, i just spent the first seven hours getting my crew to look good. (Just kidding) And you are right, it is expensive. So i was careful in setting them up. Beta was good practice..Do you know if you can customize anything on the Borg BO from Amazon? I even saved 800 skill points to get her leveled up. lol
It amuses me that a Mk II Sniper Phaser Rifle costs 215 credits, but changing my shirt costs in the interface, double that, but hte actual charge is 6,000 credits.
The costume change is clearly broken. What's awesome is that I had 2000 credits to my name, changed my uniform, said it would costs 520. Clicked "accept" and it said I didn't have 6240 credits so I couldn't purchase.
Got annoyed, walked away, did other stuff, next time I beamed down to a planet suddenly I was in the uniform I had made, and it didn't cost me anything. Gooooo LAG.
The cost should be broken down based on what you are changing. Paying the same for a new rank pin as you do for a whole new uniform doesn't really make sense. But the devs have much bigger fish to fry.
I think that once you buy a uniform you should be able to save it (not the design, but the actual uniform so you can change whenever you like for free among the uniforms that you already paid to create. If this happens the price can actually be increased. Each person can have 3 or 4 uniforms saved at a time.
edit: According to the last post maybe they already patched it to charge per item instead of a set rate?
