Re: Star Trek: Online

I am REALLY looking forward to this game, on par to how I look forward to Final fantasy games. I've been following it's development very closely and it looks amazing - exactly the type of Star Trek game I've always wanted - a universe I can get lost in and explore.

I'm even going to buy a new high end PC laptop dedicated for it, and I usually only stick with Mac's!

I hope it lives up to my expectations!

Re: Star Trek: Online

The video was an okay action trailer but I would have liked to see more general stuff, like character interactions, upgrading characters and ships, environment shots, that sort of thing. Hoping they'll come up with a cool trailer along the lines of The Old Republic "deceived" trailer. Nothing in-game but it gets you interested in the universe they are creating in a completely superficial way.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Yeah that's a point really, the trailer just showed fighting.... I hope there is going to be a lot of exploration, trade and character interaction etc.

Does anybody know if we get to walk around the inside of our ships? or is our ship just an avatar like our character is on a planet?

We've seen images of characters inside the ships previously so maybe; then again when those were shown in the original trailer the ship was being invaded...

They have said that at least at launch, you will not be able to freely walk around inside your ship. However, there will be missions which take place inside your ship!

As far as the trailer being action like, I think that is typical when you have a trailer for something. They did have a nice shot of a crew standing in front of the Guardian of Forever. And this new interview talks about some quest types:

This was from the May Issue of PC Gamer UK on Star Trek Online:

"Your time in Star Trek Online is split between 'Exploration' and 'Episodic' mission. Exploration is all about going boldly where no one has gone before: millions and millions of stars with procedurally generated planets, asteroids, anomalies, missions and threats.

There's even a special algorithm for when you travel to a system no one has ever been to before. It takes into account which types of planet and mission you and your friends have already encountered, and will generate a system that will be new to you.

Generated missions will involve responding to distress calls, being asked by Starfleet Command to investigate a nearby planet, and scanning for anomalies. If we're brutally honest, the series were often formulaic enough that it's probably not hard to produce convincing Star Trek adventures with an equation."

Good to know that there is effort going into generating the new worlds for players. I wonder will it be a new system for the first player there, and that defines how the system will be for anyone who follows up, or is it randomly generated for everyone who visits?..

No idea, there hasn't been much mentioned about their 'Genesis System' as they call it.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Cheers for those links, they certainly give food for thought. Pity that they didn't have the demo screen fully in view, missed some decent video of starship views.

Fair enough.

Did anyone notice the Federation bar was called 'Club 47'

I've been watching this develop for a long time... I'm starting to loose interest and hope... Sow us something more than screen shots on a website.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Has anyone noticed how Federation ships look more toon-like?
I don't think I like it too much.
There are too many colors ... over-exposed lighting on Federation ships with the darker hull areas sticking out WAY too much.

Ships looked great in Star Trek Legacy for example (especially with the mods to make them more show-like), however this is more ... toonish like.
It works in some areas and for still images ... just not sure about it animation-wise.
I prefer less fixation of hot colours and over-exposure in terms of lighting ... making them less saturated would be better, reducing the darker textures in intensity (say by half) and setting up the specularity properly.
Surely this wouldn't be a problem to do?
