Faction Navy uniforms

I am still quite new to the game but I have noticed something and would like to offer a suggestion. So I was doing a few missions for the Caldari Navy and noticed hey none of their agents wear any kind of uniform, in fact I have never seen any npcs with a distinct uniform. Now for most I realize this is not really noteworthy but here is my reasons for having them:

The main one is it gives the game more detail and realism. You can call a group a corporation, but a military organization is still military, and uniforms play a big role in their identity, and sense of pride.

For those of us who like dressing up our characters in faction specific clothing and ships, this would also be a good way of easily identifying with a particular corp (similar to the ORE, Sisters of Eve, or other npc corp jackets I have seen floating around).

Anyway thankyou for taking the time to read hopefully I can get some good feed back on this idea.

This is a legit good idea I think, but maybe you're not aware that most people here hate anything done to things not in-space. Especially all things related to WiS (walk in station), even if that's true that uniform make sens with navy factions.

I agree...

Seems like an easy things, Especially the Navy factions should have some kind of uniform on, and since the uniform exists...

I was thinking more for our profile picture. Not so much our walk around avatar. Big smile

So, tl;dr is make agents wear their corp's clothes? Nice detail, some promotion for the apparel, no harm done. I'm in.

am in.

Also (just to throw this out there), would it be possible to get temporary attire (like temp skins) from LP stores, so we can dress up our barbie dolls in the same uniforms as our agents so long as we keep working with them and have their LP.

That felt dirty. But come on, that's a good idea, right?

Only if it also cost some ISK with it. LP is one of the best ISK sink for the game and letting it keep that job is kinda important imo.
