I guess the impractical armor is only allowed on the more significant and renowned military forces. Then it becomes a symbol. My character isn't exactly a symbol, and I admit I was just thinking it would look cool. I was also thinking that it might fit in on Coruscant, or another city-planet with lots of neon and lights.

I would like to state for the record, while the glowing armor may not be acceptable, you're pretty much free to make a wild color scheme with normal paint. This would still fit in with your theme of camo in bright environments, while also allowing your mando to fight in other environments, for example a night world, without being seen as too much of a target.

My only counter to this though is...the clones on Felucia didn't glow and they got along just fine.  You don't want to trap your mando on only one planet...it means less work.  If their kit is only set up for glowy planets, they can only get real work done on those planets as they would stick out like a sore thumb on others.

Might I say that he would actually blend in quite well on city planets? Neon glowing... glow in the dark.... Also it's glow in the DARK, he could do job in the day.... *gasp* on any planet....

Also he would be Tron IF he had glowy stripes down his flight suit.... and he was entirely black... And I see quite a bit of grey..

Also Unless you're planning on doing any troops in the dark:

WHO IS GONNA NOTICE? ? ? ?

Really? And if you do do any events at night I bet you will get more attention than any other guy in kit around... While yes it is nice to have a back story and ect... for your kit; it's not required or needed...

Glowy things are in universe.... So I don't see why they can't be allowed... I've seen worse ideas be approved....

Personally I like the idea... If done right this can be an iconic kit, I can't wait to see progress

Kinda sad to see the amount of trolling that is going on in this thread... and the fact it has not been addressed, or removed...

I don't really know what to say besides "pretty please?" I want to do glowing if I can, but I'm not gonna argue with the rules.

glowing kit is definitely something different, excited to see how the progresses along. :)

Were you told why it wasn't acceptable? Or was it just a no?

It was just no. I looked for the costume requirements, but couldn't find them.

Here are the costume requirements:
http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=14
There isn't a rule that says you can't use glowy paint.  However, there is the quality clause, which basically gives the App team the right to deny anything they don't feel looks Mandalorian.
I don't see a problem with it, as I've said before.  But it's not my opinion that counts.
If you want to push it, maybe type out an appeal and submit it to Ulrik.

A little sketch work I did recently. Not sure if I should go for back plate and a cape or a jetpack.

If money and (or) time doesn't matter, jet pack (and you will have to have a backplate with that). If your going for cheaper, back plate and cape. And finally, if you want the cheapest and fastest, if the cape is big enough that it covers the back of your vest, you don't need a backplate under it.

Well I planned on getting a job, but that hasn't happened yet, so I'm kind of at a stand-still.

Pepaukra is a good and cheap area to start, you can get the software and files for free, fiberglass resin is pretty cheap... not so sure what your parents will say due to your age... but worth a shot

I like the concept you are going for. The glow idea might actually be something that would look really good in the right lighting. Sadly as mentioned before, most troops are done outdoors or in well lit environments. I can also tell you that trying to see out of a tinted helmet visor is very difficult in low lighting areas. Might I suggest if you are looking for some kind of neon "pop" to use led lights or el wires. These can make great accents and can still be seen in normal lighting.

I was just going to suggest led lights..I know a few people have used them esp on buckets and it looks great! I loved the glow paint idea..sad it was shot down :(

I like the LED idea. I'll probably be using glowing paint just for kicks if it's the right color in daylight, then have some LEDs to accentuate some of the parts.
