Scars of the pride, Part 3: Wameshau surface and cave theme
Hello, STO Community! My name is Alenis Kendra and I am one of the newer members of the STO universe.
While populating a ground map in the Foundry recently, I realized that my population was lacking any children. Seeing I was attempting to create the feel of a poverty-stricken refugee camp, I felt that a few scurrying urchins would add a level of authenticity.
Thanks to some very helpful tips from the Foundry Chat regulars, I was able to create a reasonable facsimile of Cardassian children as custom costumes. I’d like to share what I learned with you all, in the hopes that it might help some other newbie along the way.
First, in order to create a prepubescent character, you want to start with a male alien template.
In this thread, the following updates have gone to Tribble:
- Updated the following template maps so that they will have proper pathing information after they are published:
- Argelius II Interior
- Borg Interior 02
- Briarpatch Research Interior
- Cardassian Interior 02
- Ice Caves Interior 03
- Kassae Station Interior
- Added an “Alien” option to the species dropdown menu for both ground and space NPC Groups.
As of now sharing maps is not available, however it is very easy to share the costumes you create in the tailor. I am making this post with the hopes of starting a costume sharing library here on Starbase UGC. The database can contain custom uniforms, characters alien races, greenskinned cat people, you name it. Just upload your jpeg files found in the game’s screenshot file and you are good to go.
