PSA: Genesis Badge 1&2

trennantrennan Member Posts: 2,225 Arc User
As many know, these are the badges you get for having ran a foundry mission. Claimable in the promotions tab of the C-store.

However as a warning, as I just discovered, they are not usable by all outfits that allow one to wear a badge. For example, I can't use them with the Dyson uniform tops.

I've already dropped a report for in graphical issues in the support section. This is just a heads up to everyone for it.

    I can confirm that it won't show up with the DS9 Admiral uniform.

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    Also can't be worn on DSC away team vests, although to be fair most (all? Save DSC) can't.

    I just wish they would make badges universal....officers were known to wear badges even on their off duty clothes.

    I will say in this case Romulans do kinda get the short end of the stick due to lack of uniforms that can use badges. Unless you're a lifer, as far as I can tell only the Intel uniform can use it. The rest are lifer outfits like the Veteran Longcoat and Dress Uniform.

    As a GIGANTIC addendum to this... there are THREE costume parts. badge 1, badge 2, and an arm attach that goes on the right arm. It's a bit subtle, but it glows and seemingly goes with everything!

    Yeah, I'm kinda surprised they didn't include it as a 'Emblem' too in the costume options. The only 'Emblem' so far in the listings is a Fleet Insignia - the Genesis thingy for Foundry stuff would have been be a nice addition here.

    That is true. The arm thing does exist. Hell... I've even been able to set it on sleeveless outfits. Would just be easier to see on a darker skinned character. Its doable though.

    A sad reminder that such nonsensical restrictions as "outfits that allow one to wear a badge" even exist.

    To be fair... most of the Romulan outfits don't play well with a lot of addon stuff either. Can't really use the Ennis Vest on the standard Republic uniforms due to extreme clipping.

    One of the reasons why I hate Cryptic for closing down a particular freedom granting "feature" that the tailor had. Do you mean badges/medals, or emblems? I don't know if the zen store Romulan/Reman outfits or the Fleet Embassy robes can.

    For the fleet patch, Romulans/Remans have a bunch of outfits that can wear that.

    The fleet patch? Yeah, I like how it gives a "tattooed" right bicep look on characters that have bare arms.

    But you got to try and decide for yourself if you can work with it or not. Someone else might come to a different conclusion.

    The badge just shows the arbitrary nature of these restrictions. The arm version is wearable with anything. If you combine it with something wide-sleeved it's going to be covered, but you get to try anyway. The chest version is declared from on high as only allowed for certain shirts. And for what? You can still put on a chest gear or a collar that covers up or clips with the badge even when it's on an "approved" shirt.

    The possible combinations grow exponentially with every item slot. It's impossible to go through all of them to pre-approve the ones that play well together. The player actually putting A and B together is the one who is at the best position to decide if the combination works or not.

    I wish that they would just go ahead and unlock the tailor, and allow the person who runs the character to decide what combinations they want, provided that character/account has the outfits unlocked(wouldn't make sense for someone who is not LTS to have access to Borg or Talaxian parts, or someone who doesn't own a zen/lobi/reputation to play around with the parts). The game isn't canon anyways, and allows things such as pink uniforms with clown makeup and half-shaved curly as a hairstyle for example.

    Oh, and bring back skin textures, such as the "injured" texture.

    Primary color (round background) for Genesis 2 badges are using different color palettes, between male vs female BOffs using otherwise identical tops (23c Starfleet Uniform, in the case I've tried so far). Also, my captain can use it on Disc uniforms, but not my BOffs. Makes no sense. Who implemented this?

    On a similar note, many of the TOS-style badges can be used on other non-TOS tops, while others can't. This has been broken since AoY came out. Are we ever going to get such things straightened out, or is that not a money-making, priority bug?
