    OK, let's do this. Fleet me.

    Matt Hunter@matth431

    Sci VA, currently in a DPS-style Luna on my first Advanced difficulty playthrough. No experience in PvP, FAs or STFs. Have soloed a few bits of Nukara but that's about it.

    Assuming it still hasn't sold on the Exchange, have a nice bottle of Dosi Rotgut to crack open!

    ETA: Cheers for invite, have dropped the outstanding warp coils and shield generators into the Military project and as much dilithium as I had on me.

    Quick question as the wiki has failed me - what exactly are fleet marks used for? I get that fleet credits = buying special fleet items but are the marks contributed towards projects? I haven't seen any required for the projects we currently have on the boil.

    Also, the stuff in the starbase vendors looks very nice (fleet ground weapons, armor and shields)... is there a vendor selling fleet equipment for ships (beam arrays, etc) that I've just not found (or do we need to complete a project to get one)?

    Fleet marks are used in upgrades and projects on the fleet starbase. Besides that, I really haven't seen any other uses for them.

    Thanks. Also, on checking, looks like we can't make fleet ship weapons/equipment the same way we can get special ground items... bit of a shame as I don't PvE often enough to get any of the Borg/MACO sets... would be nice to have an alternative route to high-end gear.

    ETA: I stand corrected - looks like the next Engineering Tier should allow space weapons!

    We're one day away from being able to begin upgrading our fed starbase to tier II Yay!

    Stupid Question, but I just realized... have you noticed that the Starbase name can be changed in the UI?

    So are we going to be doing the latest featured project?

    I mean it would make the place seem a little less deserted.

    I will pass on this.

    I'd rather do the Tribbles before this.

    Sure, more NPCs make it seem more lively, but those NPCs couldn't be more generic and they just got ported over from the other Starbases and Quonos.

    What I think about when i decide if a special project is worh doing it's the RP value.

    Open blast shutters? Works. Check.
    Consoles? Why not? Check.
    Tribbles? Kinda cute, but ALL the time forever? Not so much.
    Improved Bar? Sure thing. Check.
    Generic NPCs not wearing the fleet uniform? Hell no.

    Honestly, I think the base is lively enough with the current number of NPCs, anyway. Plus, all they really do is get in the way.

    This special project does not interest me.

    Went to deposit some EC in the fleet bank but apparently can't at my current rank, so dropped a bunch of particle traces instead, feel free to put 'em up on the Exchange.

    Hmm. My white armory officers are listed as options to supply the shipyard project, but they won't transfer correctly...

    If those DOffs are currently on an assignment then they won't budge. Took me a little while to figure that out, so maybe that's the issue you're seeing.

    It's possible, but I'm fairly sure they weren't assigned. The sort of mission they'd get used on, I don't chance Whites since they usually die faster than Mitt Romney at an NAACP meeting.

    If your Doff is a fleet/base Doff, it can't be used in a project, and no, I have no way of knowing how to identify which is which.

    Link: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?p=5398171

    While that is a user posting that, I did find from the dev's that everything is working as intended. In other words, certain Doffs you get from starbases will not work as contributable Doffs. I have encountered this myself, and it is frustrating.

    Thanks J - was able to transfer yesterday without issue, must have been a rare assignment that a white shield distrib officer was useful for.

    Sorry, haven't had much free time to play. Plus it seems like if I do get a small chunk of time that it's spent patching (I have a slow Internet connection). I will try to get on again tonight.

    For someone with limited time, what's the best way for me to contribute? Thanks.

    I run the quickest dailies for dilithium and drop it into the projects. Run the Officer Reports daily and search for "quick DS9" and the top hits can all be completed just by clicking a few interactables at the Bajoran Temple, netting 1440 dilithium and 50 Fleet Marks. That plus asteroid mining and the confrontation with the Breen ship to free the prisoners are easily done in 15 minutes without any combat.

    Also run Doff missions that you are very likely to get critical successes on so you get 125 dilithium per success instead of 5.

    A few days of the asteroid mining should also yield enough particle traces to sell for sufficient on the Exchange to buy Doffs or replicate shield gens/warp coils/stem bolts for the star base projects.
