Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

even when changing ships is easy, it's the BOFF configuration, and gear loadout that makes it harder. Nice if they can save some of it, but gear is going to be harder to do like that. And I don't carry most of it, it stays parked on other ships, so can only get to it when you get the ship selector options from a base or whatever...

I was assuming that BOFF layout and gear would be included or did I misinterpret what this means:

"multiple pre-made build-outs saved"

BOFF layout yes, gear could be a tougher one to save correctly. Maybe I'll be surprised, but just seems like an easy one to screw up, as I swap my high end gear to whatever ship i'm flying, so things need to be more fluid...

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I definitely got the sense that they're making gear loadouts savable as well. Which is cool, because I generally don't change my ship gear to suit the enemy I'm flying against, because I don't think too much about the fact that some of the stuff I have works better against some enemies than against others.

I seem to remember another comment suggesting it wouldn't matter if the gear was in your bank or inventory, either.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Curious...Received email about expired exchange sale, but item in question was not returned to my inventory, character bank, or account bank. I haven't messed with the exchange very much...what little I have put up always sold. I received email on the 16th. but didn't open until today (20th). was there a window I missed? it was a rare item so I'd like it back if it didn't sell. should I file a ticket?

You have to go to a mail terminal, and then open your mail, and should be an option to 'take item'. Then can delete the email once the item doesn't show up in it anymore.

If you delete the mail before claiming the item again, it's gone, they won't fix that.

Hell, if they can just save the BOFF layout and keybinds to be rapidly switchable, that would help - there's a current bug that occasionally wipes the BOFF keybinds - really hampered my performance in a Fleet Alert last night as there was no time to reassign them.

So, Tuvok is the next guest star in STO. Tim Russ has added his voice as Admiral Tuvok for the upcoming season 8.5 mission.

Came across a free STO: wrath of kahn uniform giveaway here: http://www.mmorpg.com/giveaways.cfm?...79B96080AA6BA2

However, I followed the instructions to acquire and add the code to my account, and it doesn't show up in game for me to claim. (tailor and c-store still ask for zen.) so try at your own risk I suppose.

Free uniform for installing a possibly buggy, spyware loaded piece of software that heavily encourages you to play other PWE games? No thank you.

On the other hand, it's what they are going to anyway, so it's more just 'free uniform for doing it early'.
