New Engineering report from DStahl:
http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=202403

So many cool new features I won't even try to list them here.

My favourite though: In-game voice chat. This will do away with problems like setting up a group chat on steam, people having vent or teamspeak.
You just hook up your mic and people on your team can hear you. been waiting for that since launch! Hooray!

It's going to be a lot of work for little rteturn. WoW has had intigrated voice chat for 3 years now, yet my Guild STILL prefers to use Ventrillo (for WoW, STO, and two other MMOs we have a presence in.) I think (like WoW) wou'll still see folks goring the in game chat for Ventrillo or their favorite chat system mor often than not. What I don't like is that it puts more of a direct load on the STO server and Cryptic bandwith in game, and that's detrimental (imo.)

I agree, if you have a seperate system in place use that, but when I think of the trouble of establishing a direct voice link between team members for our latest STF runs this would have been huge help and cuts a lot of time better spent on the mission itself.
It also enables random groups to coordinate better.
And the way I understand it, the chat system won't be routed over the Cryptic servers, so wont take away much bandwidth. It just links everybody to the Vivox server system via an integrated client?

These updates are good. I can't wait for the craftable shuttles and fighters. Also looking forward to additional remastered episodes and FE's. This game is constantly getting better and better.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Hi 1st post. I've been lurking for a while now. I know this is Vektor's turf, and I have an enormous amount of respect for him, so I didn't want to post while the contest's public voting period was in progress, nor did I want to post in his wip thread, so I'm posting here in an effort to not steal anyone's thunder or step on anyone's toes. 1st impressions and all.

I'm getting ahead of myself though. I'm a competitor in the "Design the Next Enterprise" Contest, and I'd very much like your impressions of my entry: http://www.startrekonline.com/enterp...word=Weixelman

Please be as critical as you can. It's the only way I'll grow. Thank you

Honestly, the big problem there was that people picked Steam to use, but didn't understand how it really works. As in, you have to be a PAYING Steam customer to use the chat functions. We went through all the sign-up stuff, downloading and configuring clients, and just kept bashing our heads against the wall when it wouldn't work. Reading the fine print showed that you only get a Limited account (no chat) until you buy a game.

Rather than fight it again last time, I just bought a cheap game, and then there was no headache this time.

The problem wasn't Steam, but selecting it without understanding how their system works...

Re: Star Trek: Online

You can get some really cheap games on Steam, and sometimes their sales are amazing; I got Champions Online for $2.50 back when it cost money, and i got Torchlight for the same.

Still doesn't beat getting STO for $0.01 on Amazon that one day.

The stuff that's coming soon on Dan's engineering report is pretty amazing. I can't wait for the TOS interiors. I need to grind the mission that rewards the TOS phasers a few times, and deck out my whole boff crew.

I like the saucer and warp nacelles. But the secondary hull...I don't know. Seems too elongated. If that makes sense.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I kinda like it.
It looks like a ship that might show up in the game.
And I just noticed the open shuttle flight deck, which is very nice.

Only thing I have difficulty with, it doesn't look like an Enterprise to me.
It's missing that iconic feeling it should have for that.

That said, I wouldnt mind anyway, if it shows up in the game as a new mid-level cruiser or the "dreaded" starfleet carrier if you scale it up a bit, becase of the huge flight deck.

Re: Star Trek: Online

On the official forums, a pic of the new TOS bridge WIP has been released - http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=202537

Apparently the 400 day reward is coming up and it's the Captain's Yacht. I'm only at 338 days, so I still have a couple of months to go before I get that. At my current rate of doing daily missions for emblems (currently have 92 - only 408 to go), I will be getting the yacht and the Vulcan science ship at around the same time.
