A Suggestion to Mr. D'Angelo and his team... Regarding the planned ESD Revamp
 
Our new EP has indicated:

- That he is a fan of hard sci-fi over zany gimmicks.
- That he takes the IP seriously.
-That he is interested in collecting data on longstanding QoL improvements.
- That he is interesting in making individual parts of social hubs have specific function.
- That a ground up revamp of ESD with brand new maps is a near term addition.

I would like to suggest:

- That party items be designated for use in party areas like a dance floor or holosuite.
- That items like the Gingerbread Men be buffed to function year round... in designated fantasy party areas like holosuites.
- That Holo-Emitters in the Latinum store be buffed into permanent devices... usable in designated party areas.
- "Party Mode" could be enabled in missions that take place on holodecks, in proximity of Q wherever he is present in-game, in Q's Winter Wonderland. Risa and the Klingon Red Light District would be strong candidates as well.
- "Party Mode" would be enabled everywhere during designated Q calendar events, possibly along with other unique gameplay elements to indicate that Q is present for the weekend such as tweaked mission elements, strange enemies, etc.

Function should be tied to location and this is one way to fairly group players in area by interest or activity. This reduces player conflict while making the appeal of certain underutilized areas functional and possessing of a special appeal that makes their gameplay experience distinct while also making it distinct from other areas of the game.

I would ask for free party items for all with 15 minute duration.

if ya gonna revamp it... please bring back the OLD ESD... she was big, she had a 24 century feel and the interiors were big and roomy..

I'd rather they did a canon rebuild of DS9. I never go to ESD unless Q is there.

i wish they had 2 space docks, the one from the motion picture kitted out with the exchange etc. and the ESD purely as the shipyard, you can either beam over or take a travel pod, and then have the bonus experience of watching your ship depart through the doors.

EPIC!!!!!!!!

(cant be that hard can it????)

Ugh.

Worst. Design. Ever. (For a Star Trek station at least)

They went the right direction with bringing the canon exterior back and super cool INTERIOR designing like the revamped Shipyard.

There are some other good suggestions on the ESD revamp in this thread: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh....php?t=1008571 starting at Post #10.

A fan of hard Sci-Fi, over zany gimmicks, huh? Seeing that STO is basically, one, big, zany, gimmick, at this point, that's kind of like the president of McDonalds saying they want to sell Domino's pizzas.

I would like to suggest:

- That people disturbed by social items have a special Because Our Roleplay Is Necessary Gaming room or area just for them.
- That items like the Gingerbread Men be buffed to function year round... except in the designated Because Our Roleplay Is Necessary Gaming areas.
- That Holo-Emitters in the Latinum store be buffed into permanent devices... usable anywhere except the designated Because Our Roleplay Is Necessary Gaming areas.
- "Roleplay Mode" could be enabled in missions that take place on a bridge, in proximity of Orion dancers wherever they are present in-game, and Memory Alpha. Andoria and Vulcan would be strong candidates as well.
- "Roleplay Mode" would be never be enabled everywhere because frankly, this is a social game, and this should never break the immersion of people using their social items.

Function should be tied to location and this is one way to fairly group players in area by interest or activity. This reduces player conflict while making the appeal of certain underutilized areas functional and possessing of a special appeal that makes their gameplay experience distinct while also making it distinct from other areas of the game.

+1 to the above quote :)

Seriously people if you don't like party items just move zones, having a special zone/area for them is stupid people who use them want to chill out and have a bit of fun if you RP use your starbase its big, roomy, usually empty (with the usual doffs just walking about) and it looks more realistic for RPers oh and best of all no one can annoy you there with silly Zone chat!

Anyways mini rant over and back to topic I'd support making certain areas usable again like DS9 used to be for the STF stuff the Omega Rep, and then apply that to dyson land, Romulan land and Nukara land :) That way these social zones become more useful again and more fun.
