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

I just published part 2 of my foundry series yesterday. If you have some time to kill, please run them. I need the feedback to improve the missions. The foundry mission titles are:

Eclipse #1: Komahashi Maru
Eclipse #2: The Borg of 4028

I'm working on part 3 right now. The tentative title is "Encounter at Otha", but I'm inclined to change it to something more interested as it is a "mid-season" episode. I might end it on a cliffhanger.

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

My game keeps crashing... I won't log in again, till I sorted that out. Soryy, guys. Couldn't tell you when you were waiting for the queue to pop...

Edit: took this as my final push to get a new pc system. Was planning that for awhile. Should be a lot smoother now.

Never been much of a PC gamer, but I finally checked this out yesterday and it's been really fun. I'm way over-matched when it comes to fighting the Borg spheres though. They should probably tell you that!

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

If the game is laggy after turning the graphics up the maximum does that mean I need a better graphics card?

Is it laggy or a low frame rate?

I don't know how to tell.

All I know is interacting with stuff works like normal but when my character is moving it seems like they are pausing somewhat.

And this only happens of max settings.

Allright. my new pc system is running and I just had a shakedown with Crystalline Entity. That map usually makes my frame rate drop to a standstill on highest settings.
Now I can play it without the slightest hickup!

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

Anyone else notice that they did something to the menu that lets you fiddle with the graphics setting.

I hope this comes with season 9 becuase I can get pretty good graphics for STO on a laptop.

Yeah... they changed the UI a bit.
Took me a while to figure out how to set a proper renderscale again. It had it set at half value on default which looked like crap.

BTW, we have a launch date for S9: 22nd of April. Just 10 more days.

Ah the new Maxwell 750ti build, how are you finding it, i still have my old GTX 560 SC which runs very well with my I7 core, but i have been eyeing up a 750ti, they seem to offer cracking bang for your buck.

Question for you more knowledgeable types:

I'm playing a science officer and am obviously planning on getting a pure science vessel for endgame, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good T4/T5 cruiser that's decent for science. The Odyssey Science seems like the obvious, but was wondering about your thoughts (also, I'm in the minority, but I think the Odyssey is kind of ugly, too).

Cost will not be a factor, since I plan to work for the resources to get to the ship anyway, so any suggestions are welcome.
