    The KDF Fleet now have a T3 Starbase!

    Also within a couple days we should start the T2 upgrade on the mine.

    I was about to pop in to comment on the great progress the KDF holdings have been making. I haven't been playing a great deal lately with a newborn in the house. Good job steering the ship!

    Once they can sit without you needing to prop up their neck, you can play with the little one on your lap. At one and a half, my son was on my lap watching me play Everquest. I even created a character I called his and we "played" it together. It started his life long love of video games.

    While I don't have any children to contend with while playing, my dog does like to sit on my desk on my arms while trying to play which isn't easy.

    Anyway, The Mine T2 Upgrade is now live. All we need to finish it off is a boat load off fleet marks (15,331 at the moment) and 861 Dilithium Mine provisions.

    Doff missions in STO were made for parenthood. No shooting or flying. Just autopilot and click and come back to your screen every now and then. My little one is old enough to name ship classes watching me play these days. He used to just burp at them.

    Thanks to a very generous fleet mark donator, the KDF mine is now7 days away from being T2.

    Additionally the T3 upgrade on starbase communications is ready to slot once the ship customization contact project is completed.

    I started playing a few days ago, so I'm a total noob, barely a Lt. Cmdr. who's still really learning to play (and speak ;)), but I hope you could adopt me?

    Most likely I'm going to be a casual player, but having a home would be nice. Just bear with me ;) I'm not asking for someone to hold my hand while I'm still learning, but please be patient if I don't know something, or don't get any advanced terminology yet, so don't understand what you're telling me. ;)

    Fed faction.

    If you think I'm too green, and not ready yet, that's ok. :)

    Remember games like this develop their own shorthand language, so if we say something you don't understand, don't be afraid to ask for a translation.

    Yay! :)

    Sure, and I intend to learn that language, I just need a bit more time. I'll ask, if not sure. Thanks!

    I am playing for over 5 years now and I still don't know every abbreviation used. So don't worry about those details. ;)

    Some (easy) math on our status with the remaining T5 starbase upgrade.

    We are 115k military XP away from unlocking the T5 shipyard which is likely the first T5 upgrade we will get.

    At 1000 XP per leveling project this means of course 115 projects left to do.

    We could in theory run one project per day, so an absolute best case scenario would have us reach that point by July.

    It is more likely we will finish one project per week on average, because the projects sit there for days at time with the doff requirements untouched while everythign else is filled.

    At that rate we can look at our next upgrade within about 2 years.

    I don't think much is required to fill those doff requirements.

    it is actually quite easy, if everyone would recruit more.

    projects require 154 doffs. If only 8 people donate just 10 doffs every day we are set for 1 project every 2 days, which is still way off from best case, but it would put the next upgrade within this year.


    You can get doffs easily at the academy AND at the starbase by running the recruitment assignments. You don't need to spend 1000 dilithium on the general recruitment, just do the department specific ones and the vulcan/tellarite/andorian ones to get 9 doffs for absolutely free every 2 days.

    Outside of that, there are many doff assignments around the game involving recruitment or exchange of doffs. Sometimes they reward higher quality ones which are not directly usable for projects, but if you don't need them otherwise, you can downgrade them 1 purple =3 blue = 9 green = 27 white doffs.

    Then, of course, you can buy them on the exchange, if you come about some cheap ones and have some EC to spare, this is a quick and easy way to get some.
    Depending on career track they might go for as low as 7000-8000 EC per doff.

    And finally, if you have accumulated some fleet credits you don't know how to spend otherwise you can use them to buy doffs at the fleet starbase and feed them back into the projects.

    a random doff goes for 500 fleet credits, a career specific one goes for 750.

    So, lots of ways to get just a handful of doffs every day without much effort, which would help immensely at speeding up the remaining leveling progress.

    See you in game. have fun. :)

    Just this morning I was clicking my way around the fleet tabs, and discovered all those donate functions. I had only 2 available doffs, so I donated them, but I'll recruit more later and donate all available.

    One more thing to add. If you have a Romulan character, you can recruit at both the Academy / Starbase, and at New Romulus. While they don't have species specific personnel officer on New Romulus, you can do the Tac / Eng and Sci recruiting there.

    Since the turn around for those assignments is four days, you can do the Academy one, then two days later New Romulus, and so on, DOffing every two days.

    The Species specific assignments are available every three days so just grab them when they come up.

    Also remember if you get Uncommon, Rare or Very Rare doffs, you can break them down into commons for the assignments. Romulans must be done on New Romulus.

    Seems like doing Crystalline Cataclysm (advanced) PvE is an easy way to get quick dilithium, at least if the mission is successful. I seem to get between 60-140 Nukara marks for success, and then can trade them in apparently without limit for 50 marks/500 dil using the Upgrade mission for Nukara reputation. On Tier IV for Nukara reputation, not sure if that matters.

    I can easily pull in way over my daily refinement limit by doing this mission over and over. It beats the shit out of mining.

    This may be common knowledge, but just in case it's not.

    I cannot play this game any longer. I thought my problem with crashes was just with my Delta recruit. But I am trying a replay of the mission Skirmish, and the game crashes whenever i start fighting the boss devidian.

    I thought i could let my BOFFs do the fighting and finish it that way, but the boss hit me once and crashed the game.

    Something in what they did for the Delta Recruit event has introduced an incompatibility with my computer. I want to submit a ticket, but honestly, without more detail they won't be able to solve the problem
