But in the bounty level D mission "sins of the father" pirate outfits should not be allowed, the church would alarm is seeing someone dressed like so? As of L2 it's still so  :-\

Why? It's civilian clothing. Anyone can dress up as a pirate (as opposed to wearing military-grade armor) so the sight shouldn't be particularly alarming.
If an uber gal by herself does not cause any alarm, a bit of colourful clothing on top won't change that, IMHO.

Mhh i don't know... anyone thinks so?

Edit: while wareouses fits, i don't think neither temples of sirius maps should be set in industrial zones, the briefing says "isolate temple" so industrial are not supposed to be so? Again im not sure. The rogue field warlords cuould provide a couple of firearms instead a single smg, and expanding a bit the initial selection of black market junk - not much 3/4 pieces as alternative to the more advanced weapons - might be a nice alternative giving more chances/opportunity/playstile to the capn/player. :) (see screenshot)

Edit 2: those ferry vessels are supposed to pick up passenger in outskirt/town maps not in the middle of nowhere? in fact, the map is set in an open forest.(see screenshot)

Edit 3: now laslock pistol have 3 shots instead of 4...aarghh!! Also L2 with 6.5.3 assault machineguns have not themself loaded in battlescape like the pistol..there might be a problem with thouse assault stuff. Also boarding gun on jellyfish is always unloaded

Edit 4: bounty items shuld be not rely on luck, bounty should be meat to expand player possibilities, arsenal and missions, not being vital to game progression i think

It's civilian clothing. Anyone can dress as an arab so the sight shouldn't be particularly alarming.
If middle-eastern dude himself does not cause any alarm plain white robe won't change that... oh, wait!


(And some Casper-cosplaying purebloods may never make mutants feel uneasy, never!)

I see. Run for your lives because he is wearing a plain white robe. Nevermind the bomb :)

Wll an arab is an arab; but pirates are criminal by nature so no chance of error, the church of sirius should have nose for that...

Pirates may be criminal by nature, but not everyone wearing a pirate costume is necessarily a pirate.
Plus, it is not at all clear whether a 23rd century sirius priest actually knows how 19th century pirates used to dress.

Oh, c'mon, just a mob of 2-meters mutant pirates disguised as pirates wearing colorful pirate clothing designed and used by pirates to be distinguished as pirates in a world where pirates are real, raiding temples and wearing piratish-stile clothes, how can something go wrong?

Clearly, a mob of 2-meter mutant pirates dressed in red shirts is much more threatening than the same mob of 2-meter mutant pirates wearing black ganger jackets.
This is because sirius priests were issued a manual which precisely describes what is, and what is not, pirate clothing.
Lets hope they won't get raided by necropirates next, or they might get all confused.

Moreover a "ganger" look is more casual and it's a way of life/social  manifest look. A pirate is more "get to the point".

"Black jackets" is in-game visualisation of sturdy casual clothing worn by travelling ubers all over the world.

And I really have no idea what "bomb" was mentioned above. Bearded guy just playing with a toy ball, that is all.

Pirates may be more "get to the point", but in the 27th century, noone wears 18th century pirate clothing before your gals escape, not even the real pirates. Everyone knows real pirates (necropirates) wear all black, yes? People are more likely to laugh at colourful clothing than be terrified by it.

So why, after the gals escape, should such clothing suddenly be universally recognized as something dangerous? It wouldn't, unless the gals themselves promote it as such, yes?

BUT.

There are six gals, and a whole planet.

Note that ninja gals wear pirate clothing.  You even get the outfits when robbing or enslaving ninjas.

But I don't think the pirate outfit is particularly threatening looking.  Besides the temple priest is expecting trouble; why else would he be brandishing a shotgun?  Even some of the altar boys are packing heat.  Also look at the parishioners, they aren't exactly wearing their Sunday best.   :P

You get the outfit when robbing them, but they are not wearing it. They are wearing their own outfits  when on missions which are 15/5 camouflaged, something standard pirate clothing does not do.

Maybe.  I just assumed their camo came from their innate ninja abilities instead of their clothing.  It is an engine limitation that puts so many of these characteristics as armor attributes.  If they are just carrying the pirate outfits I should get them at the end of battle like the other carried objects.
