Forum people: BioWare, you suck. You promised you'd change this to look exactly like the NPC.

BioWare: We've looked at the code itself and the two are identical. It's an optical illusion that causes them to appear different.

Forum people: BioWare, you suck and can't do anything right.

QQ much? There's a miniskirt on the market. I think that'll fit this crowd just fine.
That which does not kill you merely postpones the inevitable.

I wanted to add a bit of clarity to the post in this thread, and my update from this morning. This is all of the information I have about Revan's armor, what was or wasn't changed, and why. When we originally saw the double hood issue we also noted that it appeared there was a color difference in the armor between the player and NPC. Our plan was to mirror the NPC exactly for the player for consistency. When we fixed the double hood and we looked at the color palette, the armor sets were already identical in color so no change was actually required.

The issue that I think some players appear to be seeing is that the top portion of Revan's armor is not the same as the bottom or the "light grey bug." Interestingly, they are the exact same color. Yes, Revan's top may appear slightly lighter, but they are the same color, it is just a matter of how it is laying on the cloth (similar to how dye's can affect different armor pieces differently). The reason it appeared that the CM armor and NPC armor looked different is that you only typically see Revan in darker lighting, so his coloring looks a bit different then when you are running around in varying lights in the open world on your character.

When I said originally there would be a color shift along with the double hood, we were also under the impression it would require a color shift to appear the same as the NPC armor. Unfortunately after looking over the NPC armor it appears it was already the same color, so no color shift occurred.

I hope that clears things up and apologize for any confusion!

THATS NOT THE CASE. LOOK.

Revan's BLACK Robes before they were bugged to light grey in BETA- pre 1.6.1

SAME LIGHTING, BT and Sex and Class. Different patch times.

The bug affected the entire set, not the top back before 1.6.1 The primary was BLACK. before that patch. Not to be a jerk, Eric, but pictures are worth a thousand words and I took several.

Read Magnusheart's post, and you'll find out why we are pissed off.

You need a picture of Revan's black robe (NPC-not player).

The point is that the Black Robes LOOKED like Revan's armor, and then BioWare changed it(AKA:IT IS BUGGED)

I dare you to replicate all of these pictures and compare the lighting of how dark they are. They will not compare.

Do you also have the picture of player that is wearing Revan's robe during the cutscene with Revan? The point is to prove that the 2 chests (CM and NPC) have different color even when they're in the same environment (in darker lightning as Eric said).
