Bioware on outfits colors bug

Players have reported seeing different colors on certain outfits due to different skin tone. Bioware Systems Designer Nathan Emmott responds to the issue with a possible upcoming fix.

Ok I have been looking at some of the outfits between my toon and a guildmate..
We have on the same outfit between our toons and wondering why our outfit colors are so different?

At 1st we thought it was the hair color causing the outfits to show up different in game window.
But it looks like it’s a skin tone thing..Both our toons have white hair but our skin tones are a lot different.
When making the look of my toon, I went for the skin tone in the #20- 25 skin tone scale range.

My guildmate has all her toons in the lower numbers of the fairest skin tone scale..
Her toons outfits show up in game way darker then my toons.

The color seem to show up on my toon’s Avatar in-game a lot lighter than what is shown in on my Char. Sheet
[Pic below] and when I use the preview window the outfit is showing up the same color as my Char. Sheet. I was really really disappointed after unbinding the Top and putting it on to finding it was a NOT the Bright Pink that had showed me in the preview window.

My toons colors seem washed out and pale..why is this?

I’m curious if the coloring for the outfit looks as expected when you are in a conversation. We are looking into this issue and any information can help us track down what is occurring. The details already provided have already given us some excellent leads and we hope to get this all sorted out quickly.
