Is there a possibility of members having non-uniform sig pics?

    So my main character is played as a mercenary who will work for hire to whoever needs his services. Happens to be Fed side simply because that's where most the ships were when i created him, KDF was a bit "underfunded" back then!

    I have an amazing UFP sig but i just feel the character pic doesn't really fit my character (or any of mine tbh) because they need to wear a uniform.

    Is there ever likely to be a possibility of members having non-cannon outfits for sig pics, provided say they can give a clear explanation of why they are different? It would allow those of us RP'ing a merc/trader/rogue character to still have an awesome sig but be more in tune to how we play.

    Well, even mercenaries wear some kind of uniform, we won't be supporting non-canon ones for signatures, but we have recently added Bajoran uniforms to the list, which might work for you, since they are a militia organisation. I'm not sure what other canon uniforms we could add that would fit that of a mercenary, Section 31 at a push maybe? I think that's been discussed before.

    Hmm whats wrong with the mercenary outfit they got at the zstore? Seems like a decent 'Uniform' for those into that particular playstyle/role. My jem has that on since I feel way out of place in the game as a Jem'Hadar with these old episodes lol.

    Ah ok then.

    My main doesn't really wear any uniform tbh, and nor does any of the crew. It fits their story best that way.
    My thinking was perhaps find a way to allow members to have an alternative to the uniform pics provided they can offer up a good back-story as to why their character should be exempt.
    Don't want a mass of different outfits etc and scantily clad Orions all over the place obviously but a minority of members might have some cool stories to tell.

    The KDF gets more leniency with uniform policy, since each race in canon has a different uniform (or lack of), whereas the Federation side doesn't have that same variety, since they are all flying under Starfleet. With our signatures, in recent years, we have made attempts to add more variety for everyone, but at the same time, remain true to Star Trek in some fashion.

    I see your argument, but unfortunately, it's not really possible, because we would end up with a large array of mismatched uniforms, or if we police RP reasons, we will end up with arguments like "Why is Sammys reason better than mine? I wrote just as much story for my character!", which is something we'd rather like to avoid, since we are not really a roleplay community, we are a general fan and gaming community.

    You do have an alternative, which is to create your own signature, or get a friend to do so, a handful of other users do this, and that's perfectly acceptable! But with our official signatures, we want to try and limit it to what is seen in canon, and we do work hard to try and bring more variety!

    Hope all that makes sense!

    I agree that our signature uniform should stay in the realm of Star Trek but I also like some uniqueness, good decision Three!

    It's not a uniform that has appeared on screen, those are the ones we currently limit our policy to.
