Re: Star Trek: Online

no, that's still the weakest point in the game. FAR too many levels of 'defeat 3 squadrons', 'scan 5 anomalies on the deserted base', etc. Most of them with that donut-shaped asteroid at the end near the last deserted/damaged ship.

They've been redoing some of the missions, but a hard look at spicing up the middle levels would be good, far too much of the same thing. When they take the time to do the 'story' missions, they're really good, but too much filler...

i am sorta the same about wanting a Starship Creator but combined with starfleet command, kinda works too but i wish the starship gameplay was as detailed as starfleet command

anywho

nope, just resubscribed today and interiors are still huge and more for a spacejockey than for humans - this irks me to no end, they look trekkish enough for the 25th century just scale them down it cannot be that extremely difficult and the masses will praise cryptic for it

BUT they are planning for a size accurate TNG era (galaxy or defiant who knows, but its going to come during a DS9 themed featured episode) interior like they did for TOS a while back - here's the TOS interior (which you must buy) http://wwwyoutube.com/watch?v=eQd-5FRkZCY

i wish they would make a TOS era inspired T5 ship so you could use the TOS interior end game and feel "right" about it

oh, and no still cant customize the generic crewmen

True-scale interiors only work for interiors NOT used for missions, for technical reasons that apply to all multiplayer games that use this kind of perspective and camera distance, so true-scale personal ship interiors require creating maps that can't be re-used for any other purpose. They will thus be slow-arriving and low priority, but they'll come.

TOS-era T5 ships have been nixed by CBS. They may change their minds some day, but it's not likely going to be soon.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I get the feeling that the interriors their doing for the next feature episodes are for the Defiant, seeing as

1) It's DS9

And

2) Their updating ever thing else for the Defiant

Re: Star Trek: Online

Why do people keep asking for Tier 5 TOS. According to the Devs, CBS keeps axing the idea because it doesn't fit in the storyline. Thats what I read in the STO fourms.

Becuase TOS fans want to be able to use their ship at endgame like the TNG, DS9, and Voyager fans get to.

Re: Star Trek: Online

There's an endgame?

Other than the couple of 'Featured series', not much at all to do with a character once you hit VA. Been my biggest disappointment in the game, that they didn't put much thought into what you should do once you finish all the grinding 'scan 5 samples, fight 3 waves of bad guys' missions...

The odd thing about that is that Cryptic Studios wrote the idea of "modular shipbuilding" into the Path to 2409, meaning that (Federation, at least) ships in the game may share the exterior design of older era starships, but were constructed entirely with current era technology. So, CBS presumably approved the story ideas in the Path to 2409, but at the same time have decided that an old era ship doesn't fit into the timeline. Talk about a contradiction.

What, you don't want to do a handful of STFs over and over and over?

Because you dont have room. You need an empty space over on the left.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Ok... Over on the left you have:

Your name
Ship name
Officer #1
Officer #2
Officer #3
Officer #4


You need an empty space for your next officer to be able to have 5.

.....

Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. You need a spot on that list that says it has room for a new officer.
