Request: Existing NPC only clothing converted to orange schematics/social gear.

If you have ever explored the VIP lounge on the fleet you will come across some amazing clothing on NPC's that is currently unavailable to players in game. To view this yourself travel to the VIP lounge log out to the character screen and log back in to have all the NPC's loaded.

Some of this clothing is amazingly well detailed and fits the Star Wars setting much much better than the new gear we receive with every content push. I posted screenshots of the gear below so you can see what items caught my eye.

I propose that they add these existing models into custom schematics for players or as social gear. This will increase player immersion without being terribly time consuming for the limited dev staff.

We've been told that clothing modeling and art department work is the most difficult and time consuming so lead time for new items can take months. It's completed work, in game currently, and low hanging fruit. Please make it happen.

Bottom line, everyone benefits with content added that already exists.

I've posted screenshots below.


Republic Fleet VIP Lounge

Smuggler style outfits.

There are two smuggler outfits that look really cool. The first features an eye patch like item and a really interesting back section.

Back: http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/2...ugglerback.png

The second smuggler outfit has a red/while theme with an interesting and unique jacket.

Jedi Style Outfits

There are three jedi style outfits. The first is similar to the legacy gear but with the shoulders pieces added and the hood down.

Back: http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/5339/jediback.png

The second outfit is incredibly well detailed. Though the color scheme is probably better suited for Link or an elf it has potential.

The last Jedi style outfit is consular based. Simple and elegant.

Trooper Outfit

This is my favorite trooper outfit I've seen in game. The blue/white combination just rocks and it has no annoying box on the back of the armor. This would be the only armor my trooper would need for the lifetime of the game.

Miscellaneous Outfits

This outfit is incredible. Well detailed and would look good on anyone in any profession.

Another random outfit. Could be an interesting guild uniform.

The band. Not bad.

Imperial Fleet VIP Lounge

Agent Style Outfits

No other class got screwed as much as the agent. The absolute best armor is on some NPC's in the VIP room. The headpieces are classic agent and the rest of the suit screams infiltration team. This needs to be in game, I'd even make an agent to use it.

Another agent outfit.

Back: http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/676/agent3back.png


Sith Style Outfit

This one is nice and simple, with a great color scheme:

Miscellaneous Outfits

The ultimate imperial trooper. This needs to be in game asap.
Front: http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/8...rmtrooperv.png
Back: http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9827/stormtrooper2.png

A noble man, good for RP.

Imperial Band.

The second "smuggler" jacket is absolutely something I'd dress my Gunslinger in -- and if that means a visit to the cash shop, I won't quibble.

To be honest, that is one of the things I think F2P and the cash shop will be good for -- access to cosmetic items which may not change game dynamics, but which allow a wider variety of style. And yes, I like that and don't mind spending a little pocket money on it now and again on top of what I pay for play time.

Nice job collecting these, and I agree a lot of them look a ton better than the gear we have access too.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I'd be fine with these ending up in the FTP store I just want them in game period.

I guess the point is that they had talented people that created some great Starwarsy outfits that we should have had from the beginning. Worse is that these were relegated to NPCs that most people will never see without a relog highlighting the poor decision making pre-launch that has continued through the mess of current tiered gear that doesn't in anyway reflect the star wars IP.

One of the NPCs on Alderaan has one of my favourite sets. I believe she's part of the world mission line and her name starts with a K. I think it was Kaikana. Her blue outfit is so awesome.

EDIT: Found her on torhead with screenshots to boot: http://www.torhead.com/npc/7ESo56e/k...ot#screenshots

The npc you talk to at the end of kaon under siege - I want her jacket so bad. Others I've grouped with said the same thing actually.

GIVE ME THAT JACKET BW.

The consular trainer ilum rep base has an awsom shadow robe on im desperate for.

The joke that's consular end game gear just isn't funny. There's so much cool gear at 1-49 but then it seems they gave the end game design to a bunch of 3 year olds and carnival designers.

Yeah.. i also feel they went way too overboard with gear after about level 30-40 and really should have developed gear more along the look of the lower level. Add a few armor paddings here and there, some more detailed additions, etc..

Basicly.. what they did to make NPC's look unique. More unique than PC's actually..

Wow! I do like that.

Luke's Return of the Jedi outfit is my favorite in all the star wars movies. Simple and looks awesome with the top slightly open and the white part exposed. All the books after had jedi in mostly combat suits and I'd like to see something similar.
