Yes. There are pieces I like the model of, but no the colour and for some the colour match function is just... wrong.

I would but only with restricted color options I don't want to see bright pink bounty hunters. Or they could simply improve the color matching system that already exists as well.

Why does everyone hate pink? Can it at least be an accent colour?

I liked having the option to change the color of my armor at whim in SWG. At first it was with kits then eventually they made it so you could do it on the fly. It was also an interesting way to keep track of "strike teams" in PvP. Since the community on Intrepid server was pretty tight we all had established "uniforms" via colors when PvPing. DLE was black armour with a red right sleeve. Good times.

Agree.

I'd be happy if armors came with a few alternate color schemes, and that's it. Unrestricted colors just encourage stupid appearances that make a mockery of the lore. Even unrestricted in-game colors wouldn't be ideal, as Synth and Armor crafting professions are just barely worthwhile now, and rely upon the profit made from different color schemes of various armor. Allowing users to pick whatever color they want would mean that crafters would only be able to sell six or so sets of armor... ever.

For those of you who don't understand: Imagine if you could pick the color of your speeder. Sounds great, but what's the point of running those Level 50 missions to get your red/black/flaming/etc speeder when you can get the same look with any speeder you pick up at a vendor? The different appearance is a driver for the economy and for questing.

Change Colors? Yes. After months since the Blockade Runner came out, they have yet to fix Revan's set. 1.6.1 it became a light grey then a black set of robes, the face mask covering your head with the Mask of Revan no longer matches the robes now because of the change.

Yes, definitely.

Everyone is always so worried about the color pink or other bright pastel colors, but I don't know why. Played WAR and Rift for a bit, and pink/light colors were options and there weren't a lot running around using those colors predominantly

Simple, let the armor makers be the ones that make the dyes, paints, and coloring kits. Other than being on an RP server, lore goes to **** in any MMO. Hell, lore went to **** when they made trooper adaptable armor that a sickly looking Inq could wear
