General

  • New Feature: Outfit Designer! You can access this new feature by opening your Character Sheet from the Menu bar of the “C” key by default. All players start with the first tab unlocked. You can assign the appearance of an item to a particular slot by dragging the item from your Inventory and dropping it into the appropriate slot. This does not consume or otherwise “equip” the item – it can be used for multiple appearance tabs.
    Once you’re satisfied with your outfit, clicking the “Commit” button at the bottom of the screen will save that Tab’s appearance. To use this outfit, click “Apply” at the top of the window.
    If you wish to unlock more tabs, simply click on the tab to the right of the Character Sheet and purchase it with Credits or Cartel Coins.
