Okay everyone! This one is to start the discussion on changing the colors for uniforms/armor and such! Though out your color ideas! Different colors for different Commands? Keep in mind we may get guild members to make the Dyes for us, so cost may play a factor in the final decision. What do you all think?!?July 5, 2017 at 7:17 pm #163
I would suggest colors that can be crafted so that it is easily attainable. With that in mind, I would suggest:
Deep Red and Black (Section X rep dye*) for troopers
Black and Deep Blue (CZ-198 rep dye*) for officers
My character, Aysha Shiba can manufacture any craftable dye, including all reputation dyes. So a free supply of these dyes should be possible.
I chose black for both dyes to reflect the elite/commando nature of troopers run by players. All the other NPC troopers that we’ve got standing around the Eternity, etc. are in the standard white/orange. I think our Players are head and shoulders above the run of the mill NPC, though, and deserve to stand out.
But take a look around! google swtor craftable dyes for a more complete list of possible colors for our troopers!

Great Suggestions Lumi! Those colors would definitely stand out! It is important that we look for Dyes that are inexpensive to make, but look cool!July 8, 2017 at 3:49 pm #171
I will be taking suggestions for 331st colors for the next week (Ending July 15th.) At that point I will be making a decission on what the new uniform colors will be. Right now I like the idea that Lumi suggested with the black an Dark Red/Blue depending on rank. Please add your suggestions to the threat when you can!
As you were!

I suggest either white and red or each team can choose thier colot some can choose the sameJuly 15, 2017 at 2:55 pm #185
The black seems a bit imperial xDJuly 15, 2017 at 3:11 pm #186
Black does seem a little more on the dark side. However, we need to look at costs for dyes. Are the white combinations cheaper or more expensive to make? I would be providing these to members of the through gracious donations form others! So, cost will be an issue.
Also, the reason for this is to bring a uniformity to the 331st. Some might argue that that takes away from a character’s individuality. I agree. It does. It’s supposed to. This is a military outfit and I think nothing looks more impressive that a uniform look and helps build that team mentality. That’s why I think this is important AND would look awesome!July 15, 2017 at 3:21 pm #187
The white and medium red are only 100k or lessJuly 15, 2017 at 3:22 pm #188
On the gtnJuly 15, 2017 at 3:23 pm #189
And on the security key vender its like 5kJuly 15, 2017 at 3:28 pm #190
So heres how the white and medium red goes its 100k or less o. The gtn and for security key vendors its like 5k but binds on pickup the white represents that we are good while thw red shows a more military look as red is a color that strikes fear in enemiesJuly 15, 2017 at 6:56 pm #191
Good research Seb! So we have a few options out there. If we wanted a compromise, I wonder the accessibility on getting medium gray with red? I do like having different secondary colors to represent officers and such.July 15, 2017 at 7:36 pm #192
I can look into how much the grey is on The gtn gove me a second its.. but the white is the primary and the grey and deep red is 250k on gtn perhaps a white and green or white and some other color to show rankJuly 16, 2017 at 12:25 pm #193
So… given it some thought… I have a common attraction to the white uniforms because of what the color represents. I like the trooper look in the game with the white base. However, I want our colors to be different than what is in the game. Because the black base will be unique I think they would be an interesting look for us. The big reason though is that the dyes will be donated to the 331st. Free is always good! So… We will be going with a black base uniform, red secondary for Private to Sergeant, and blue secondary for Lt. – Major.
Thanks for the posts and the discussions!July 17, 2017 at 2:29 am #196

I’m also partial to the White + One other color scheme.
If we can’t afford dyes, there are a bunch of vanilla armor pieces out there that are white + another color by default?
