Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Had fun the other night doing my first ground mission with fleet members. I apologize again for getting turned around and blowing the time bonus. I have been donating what I can to the Fleet base, but I am hoarding dilithium for a new ship. I would donate crew but I traded in all of my "white" DOFFS for greens and blues.

Just as a hint... you can buy career specific doffs from the fleet base with up to blue quality for fleet credits as well, which you get for donating... though I am not sure what gives you the better return rate.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

yeah, trading in whites for green and blue is going the wrong direction. Blue/purple can be useful for doff missions and the 5 ship/ground slot, but once you hit your needs, should be grinding the greens back down into whites for Fleet projects. Greens don't do much for you, and each nets you 5 whites for donating, so better return there. You very quickly end up with enough purples and blues that there's no point in hoarding more past then

New starbase looks pretty, but haven't had chance to really play yet. Are the instances going to be smaller? Seems like a much smaller map than previously. Nice that you don't have to run all over, though. KDF First City needs a revamp; looks nice but impossible to use or find anything. Should get similar revamp to straighten things out. can keep ideas for RP and whatnot, but more of the needed functions should be laid out in a more concentrated area...

The map is about the same size... Taco has posted a comparison shot somewhere... maybe i can find it later. it's simply more open and straight forward all on a single map.

hmm, maybe. Just seems like it takes a few min to run the lap of the old one, whereas when you start in the middle of the open space, not far to anywhere

More fun with the fleet yesterday killing Borg and 8472's. Please excuse my newbie-ness to team play. I have been playing solo since I started and the team dynamic takes some getting used to. I think if we had live chat (speaking not typing) as we played it would help. I used to play WOW and still play LOTRO. LOTRO has in-game chat but it is horrible and glitchy. Me and my friends open a Skype session group call to play. Makes coordinating the team a lot faster and easier.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Sure, but I have rarely heard from fleet members that they have a headset hooked up.

I have one, but usually am too lazy to hook up my own.

For what it's worth the game has Vivox voicechat implemented, though sometimes a bit glitchy.


Otherwise I don't think any fleet member owns a voice chat server.

I've been playing EverQuest since the year 2000 and was in an elite raid guild consisting of Japanese, Hong Kong, Singaporean, Australian, New Zealand and American players who practically shared no common language for communication. So trust me when I say that speech while helpful, isn't necessary in this type of game.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

That is why I suggested Skype. I have a headset and will hook it up next time we play. That way I won't miss it when I get a message to start on the chat line that blows by and I keep the team waiting for me for no reason. It has been my experience that the in-game voice chats usually suck, WOW and LOTRO are both horrible.
DOFF's: I got rid of all my beginner white DOFF's because they were useless. I'd rather have one good green who will complete a DOFF mission than five who waste my time. But I will look into the fleet DOFFs. Sounds like a good place to get them for a reasonable price. I thought the AH's for WOW and LOTRO were over-priced but the prices at the exchange can be ridiculous.

I think it pays off to use the fleet doff vendor.

You can pick them career and quality specific, though specialization is random.

The ones you don't need you can downgrade to common whites and put them back into projects which will return you some more fleet credits (though at a bit of a loss I think) or sell them on the exchange.

Checked out the Fleet DOFF guy. A much better deal than the exchange or even the standard fleet personnel officer. I'll be trading in my chump greens for whites to get blues. Thanks for the info.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

While I wouldn't call it a priority really, the Special Project "Museaum Quality" on the starbase is just 14k dilithium from completion. it will unlock a few special banners and a UFP logo for the interior.

Once that's done we start working on the Dance Floor, which I believe is the last real cosmetic improvement available unless we count security guards and a tribble infestation which I'm not too keen on.

I just got an Avenger Battle Cruiser and was going to equip it with fleet beam arrays when I realized we've run out of Military Operational Asset Provisions.

I hope you guys don't mind that I've queued up a Mil. OA provisioning project in the starbase queue.
