    Wooden clothing does have excellent armor characteristics.
    However as it only protects against Pebble, Cactus and Wind damage types its overall usability is limited.
    You bring up a good point tho.

    And just to clarify, the Smuggler Armor I have described would not allow a person to equip two sets of armor at once.

    Could be time to start a campaign for the introduction of wooden plates to address the clear deficiency in current armour protection.

    Umm... Why? Why should it be illegal to wear a reworked armor?
    That is nonsense. Is it illegal to wear a T-Shirt from Nike, where a celebrity wrote his signature in the front? Eeeks! Then I have an illegal shirt! And Dirk Nowitzki did it!!! :surrender:

    An armor with the protection between Gremlin and Tiger class is a medium grade passive protection. And in a territory as dangerous as Arkadia is, it would be more than stupid to prohibit the use of this protection.
    To rework it, is even more intelligent! Why should you use something, that doesn't fit your working style? Why should there be a problem in adding some solid metal arm guards, if you hunt Oros and can stop their attacks easier this way?

    And on earth too, it is not illegal to wear a kevlar vest. Maybe someone would ask, why you wear it, but it is not illegal. Why should it be here??? We are not members of the armed forces, where self made changes would be illegal...

    Yea armor that makes u invisible would be great, anyone that had it would rule the game in pvp. But I not sure how that would fly with MA. Markup of armor like that would be insane.

    So if we cant be invisible, next best thing to that and fits the Smuggler ideal would be blending in.
    Similar to the Chameleon ;)

    Direct from Moonshines storyline the developer of the smuggler weapons...

    ‘‘Don’t play me for a fool; this is not standard issue. What is it? You’d better have a good explanation or I’ll be reporting you for making unauthorised alterations to military equipment.’

    ‘So I made some improvements, what’s so bad about that? I’m a technician, it’s what I do.’

    The trooper turned the weapon over in his hands, as if considering what to do with it. A faint sheen of sweat gathered across my forehead as I wondered what I would have to do to keep my weapon.

    ‘Sounds like contraband to me, I think I’ll have to confiscate it.’

    ‘You can’t do that!’ I said, stalling for time while I considered my next move.

    ‘Oh really? Maybe I should hand it in to the Lieutenant right now? I wonder what she would have to say about civilians illegally modifying weapons?’"

    here's a thought.... it's Smuggler armor, so that's not really HEY LOOK AT ME!!!! armor is it...
    so make it to where we don't see it... if a player can wear the armor, but look like they are still just wearing normal clothes, that would fit the name.

    Well with weapons so far the smuggler versions have been the same chassis but with better stats and the ability to be repaired...logic at this point would dictate that a possible first incarnation of a Smuggler armour set would follow the same principles (i.e. look the same but can be repaired and have better stats).....Moonshine (as shown above by Bugbear) is already known for tinkering with existing hardware....

    Read the info page on one of the Smuggler items and this should be clear.

    Using photoshop and the basic plugins (had to make a fishnet brush/pattern) I started to play with ideas for the smuggler armor design thread.
    With these I tried to keep the org. Arkadian armor framework just changing the color/texture areas.
    I am working on another one and will upload it when its done.

    I like this blue one a lot, maybe its because it has a bit of Tron in it :)
