Why is my Outfits colors different ?.......

Ok I have been looking at some of the outfits between my toon and a guildmate..
We have on the same outfit between our toons and wondering why our outfit colors are so different?

At 1st we thought it was the hair color causing the outfits to show up different in game window.
But it looks like itís a skin tone thing..Both our toons have white hair but our skin tones are a lot different.
When making the look of my toon, I went for the skin tone in the #20- 25 skin tone scale range.

My guildmate has all her toons in the lower numbers of the fairest skin tone scale..
Her toons outfits show up in game way darker then my toons.

The color seem to show up on my toonís Avatar in-game a lot lighter than what is shown in on my Char. Sheet
[Pic below] and when I use the preview window the outfit is showing up the same color as my Char. Sheet. I was really really disappointed after unbinding the Top and putting it on to finding it was a NOT the Bright Pink that had showed me in the preview window.

My toons colors seem washed out and pale..why is this?

Also most of the Belts and Bracers donít seem to unify colors correctly.
Why not just us the same options as our Helm.. to not show.
The players that wear the dancers outfit look really odd with bulky belts and bracers.

Adding another Pic.... It's of my Smuggler, She is in Med Armor called Aspiring Knight's Vest.
As it seen in the Pic. below my armor color is darker on my Char. Sheet and light Gray in game and other players say they see the Light Gray color as well ... so I know its not a Screen Contrast setting, like I thought at first.

I've noticed this as well for my Human Marauder wearing the Masterblade vest and put a ticket in for it. In the preview window and the cinematics, the chest piece is bright red; but in game it appears pink. If i use the match to chest, the pants become bright red everywhere so that should be the correct color. I could try farming Foundry on other toons to see if it shows correctly on other toons, but haven't bothered yet.

I believe this has been pointed out before and in those cases it has also been linked to the skin colour of the character in question. However, I don't believe Bioware has ever commented on this... oddity. I suggest you report it, as it's clearly not as advertised.

Because they made a mistake with the advertisement again, if I were to guess. They had to change the spymaster and phantom gear because it didn't look like it did on the picture.

Well, neither did the new dance outfit. It was red, but on the picture it was white. White and yellow, to be precise, and in the 100 page thread about the spymaster and phantom gear they said they would change the dance outfit so it looks like it does on the picture.

HOWEVER, this time they screwed up bad! Because on the picture, the dance outfit is white and yellow. I.e, the dance outfit that came from the previous cartel pack. They couldn't make it look like the old one could they? No doubt they are trying to hit the middle ground here, or something.

And take my words as wild guesses based on the experience of what I've seen from Ea/Bioware as of late. :/

Usually I'd agree, but the bracers are colour-matched to the dark-hot-pink shown in the Character Pane, indicating that the rest of the outfit should also be dark-hot-pink.

It's related to skin color of your character. Outfits become brighter the darker the skin is. I see dark skinned consulars having their WH gear showing up as pure white. And I've been pretty jealous of how dark some gear turns on really pale characters.

Is that only for human characters or does it effect alien species as well?

I guess you're lucky that it happened to your entire set. I bought the red SI robes on the CM, and the top is pick, and the rest is a deep red. All the cut scenes, and views have the top of my robes a deep red, but not when I'm walking around.

I have not looked into that, I will have to make toons on the TS and make a light blue skin Chiss and a dark blue skin Chiss and do same for Sith race.
all my Rep. toons are Human and skin tones are #23 to #25 on the skin tone scale.

Where is the Bioware post in this thread? Moderating themselves?

Yeah I have this same issue on a couple of my characters, but I have noticed it on other gear as well, however the Fancy Reveler chest is the most pronounced.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.
