Oh wow it is like playing the sequel to Star Trek Online - it is a totally different game and experience! I enjoyed it first time around but it is so much more polished now! I'm glad that I had the long break from playing.
Unfortunately, even though my Mac should be able to play the game with graphics maxed out as it far exceeds the minimum specs, it still seems a bit like it's struggling with graphics. So I've installed windows in Bootcamp and I shall also run it through that - apparently the OSX version doesn't run as well as the Windows version but at least now I have the option of playing no matter which OS I'm logged in to.
Loving the game, it's all new to me again
What's your charactername@timofnine ? So I can reinvite you to the Armada.
Last night I had a look at the exchange.
Prices for R&D boxes ranged between 250k-900k EC.
Superior upgrade modules cost around 350k.
That means it is way cheaper to play an Elite Ground STF (Borg or Undine) or Undine Space STF or Nukara Ground STF to get one high value box, sell it and get 2 superior upgrade modules out of that instead of crafting one yourself... for now at least.
Its 5-10 times cheaper than I had expected if people were crafting these. After all, each superior takes 1 very rare material and they cost at minimum a million ec. In other words, they are not being crafted. Which suggests to me that people are somehow farming these.
With my sci recon, I could never really get through the starbase's shields. And, if I did, it was only down to 1 percent....
Its what I use to test my ships too. I know that if my ship can take down the starbase without being destroyed, I can take on anything in the game.
So I purchased the ambassador robes from the fleet embassy but don't see them in my list of outfits at the tailor. Is there something else I need to do?
Looks like the Guardian is going to have customization options
I'm especially interested in what option will be available for the pylons.
it's an off-duty option, you set that at the Head menu in a drop down menu.
Ah ha! Thanks much!
Can get online again, holodeck down. Since this weeks patch it seems to be one issue after another
As a Voyager fan, I am interested in this new Delta Rising update.
Is it just items or is it a new mission? The site doesn't give much info.
How to play it?
Are they f***ing serious? $124.99 for the Delta Rising game pack? Am I reading this right? O_O
Its part of a continuing arc that's been going on for quite some time. Most recently, its lead to the discovery of a series of gateways that lead to the Delta Quadrant. Delta Rising continues the story with a series of new missions set in the Delta Quadrant and sees the return of several ex-Voyager crew members and Delta Quadrant species.
However, these missions are designed for players level 50 to 60 so if you're starting fresh, it may take a while before you reach these missions.
You don't have to buy the whole pack they will most likely (I'm almost 100% sure) tptb will part it out so you can buy only the ships you want (probably the only time it's justified to spend real money on the game) the content itself (missions and new features) are free.
I am level 30 so I guess I will need to wait a bit.
Do you need to pay for it?? Apparently the "game pack" for it is $124.99 LOL
Delta Rising content (the missions, queued events, various space and ground maps) are free for all players. Buying the pack is gives you 9 new ships (5 Fed, 2 KDF, 2 Rom) and a couple of in-game items and officers. Its totally optional and only worth it if you're playing lots of characters in each of the factions.
The ships in the Delta Rising pack have nothing to do with Star Trek Voyager whatsoever.
If you want to have the Voyager experience, just get a T5 Intrepid class and upgrade it to T5-U.
if you want to have it maximally powerful you can also get an even slightly more superior version from a fleet with a T5 starbase, though that will accumulate in cost if you dont want to grind out the resources.
it is likely that Cryptic will also introduce a faithful Intrepid class ship interior that may even feature some Voyager specificrooms like Astrometrics, neelix's kitchen and a cargobay with alcoves (but those are not confirmed).
I just want to play the Delta Rising missions, but unlike other special missions that have come out since I've been playing, I didn't see any option to play. Maybe because I am level 30?
I don't really care about which ship I have, etc.
