As it stands now, Fleet Uniform selections are limited to uniforms that are preloaded at the start of the game. While this isn't too much of a problem for Fed and KDF (the Romulans get screwed over, only having access to the civilian clothes), I feel like STO as a whole can do better in terms of fleet uniforms.
To wit, I have a suggestion to put forth that might be feasible to make this work. @borticuscryptic
, this is for you.
My thought would be to have a fleet uniform be a tailor unlock (like the reputation sets) that:
1) is only available for wear if the toon is in the fleet
2) is only accessible through the same pulldown tab you use to access off-duty, beachwear, and formal wear to avoid using parts on other uniforms.
3) goes away if you leave the fleet
4) includes uniform parts that are obtainable at game start, through the C-store, Lobi store, Exchange, Mission Rewards, tailor purchases, or fleet tailor purchases. Reputation gear, map-restricted outfits (like Risa swimwear), and armor sets would not be allowed. Of course, the selection would be limited to what the uniform designer has in their own inventory.
This idea would allow for greater freedom of expression in the fleets, encouraging people to wear their fleet uniforms, while at the same time still restricting the use of uniform parts outside of the fleet uniform itself.
Can this or something similar be done?
