    And apparently brown/orange pants, according to a bug report on Reddit...

    Black or grey would probably be the best choice, Cardassian uniforms aren't very colourful.

    ugh, the pants dont work right, cant color match with top
    why cant Cryptic just give us all color options for all slots, and mix the connected parts issue where you change the color on one thing and it forces 3 other parts to be that color

    "I got this, too, but was able to work around it.

    What's going on is that the color slot that you have in the red square is not tied to that part of the pants. Instead of assigning it to Slot 2, it's actually assigned to another slot.

    I was able to switch to the Xindi pants and change the color in Slot 3, which carried over when I switched back to the Cardie pants. I don't know which other pants this would work with. The tailor is very inconsistent about which color is assigned to which slot."

    Someone on reddithad this work around. Honestly I don't know if I will use the uniform, the details on shirtless Cardassians, males at least are awesome. I will hold off for now.

    Looks like my concerns were right, they didn't add the Cardassian emblem badge unfortunately, they just disabled the badge option entirely.

    There aren't any rank options either. Oh well.

    yeah.. wrong color pallets so can't get the same colors.. my female cardassian's pants can't be changed from white..

    edit: found i could swap to reinforced pants to change the colors than swap back to cardassian pants to get around it. Colors still dont sync up well

    Yeah we need the ranking and emblem badge! Don't slack on this devs!

    Probably the highest ranking version of the uniform with a slight difference including the badge:

    Also someone on deviantart made an artwork showing the different versions of the uniform from the show:

    We didn't actually get any boots with the one in game.

  • tyler002tyler002 Member Posts: 1,475 Arc User
    Boots are paired with the 'Lower - Tight' option.

    Rather than use the "Cardassian Uniform update" thread that was asking for information on it's release... I thought I'd start a feedback only thread. (intentionally did not put this in the Bugs forum because the uniform spent 2 weeks +/- in QA, kind of doubt the issues are bugs)

    Tops and boots are a glossy metallic with a forced golden undertone. This makes even the darkest black take on a black/gold color. Pants are kind of matte.

    Color pallets for tops and bottoms don't match. One large color pallet for both tops and bottoms would be welcome. (for all uniforms, at this point)

    No badge option at all.

    No Cardie helmet... although personally, I'm not missing this one. Those helmets were fugly.

    Make the tops and boots the same matte as the pants, or vice versa. Give us the full color pallet on all pieces. Badge options, even on the sleeve/shoulder, would be nice. You can keep the helmets :wink: .

    Overall the Cardassian uniform is pretty bleh. While I appreciate the devs at least making it available, the color options are really not visually pleasing. The material itself on the upper looks like matte cotton compared to the shows in which it looked much more metallic. It's pretty obvious that zero artwork was done for this release and that it was just a copy/paste from the npc visuals.
    When you see "TRIBBLE" in my posts, it's because I manually typed "TRIBBLE" and censored myself.

    This article shows there are some greens and blues in the uniform:

    The color palette on the one in game isn't that great, and the division of color sections is off from the canon uniform. The color palettes are even different from male to female. What we got was really pretty vanilla with few customizing options and no rank or other insignia. While I appreciate the uniform being made available for free, I would have happily paid for one with all the bells & whistles!

    The pants they gave it look like they are from the T'pol outfit.
  • avoozuulavoozuul Member Posts: 2,262 Arc User
    Problem is the uniform models look like they were given a gold gloss.
  • lnbladelnblade Member Posts: 242 Arc User
    Could we get all of the Cardassian uniform pieces for men and women to use the same color pallet? I don't care which one, just as long as they're all the same so that I can match the colors easily.
