Powerhue?
 
I am sad that the programers removed the powerhue "bug". I would really like it back. So my question is can we the players have it back?

Personally glad they fixed it. No to pink phasers, hearts on the saucer section, pom poms on the nacelles, and heart-shaped torpedoes.

And we've already seen several posts on this. Another one really necessary?

No one said it will be a microtransaction feature except for trolls.

This was nerfed due to complaints by PvPers and hardcore RPers.

Not likely to ever come back unfortunately.

Angry/upset players generally don't read existing threads or the Dev Tracker before making a bee line to the New Thread button... ;)

I'm assuming you are using the word nerf ironically since changing colors of weapons isn't related to player combat power.

Its not likely to come back for the same reason there are limited colors in uniforms and ship customization. There is a fine line between customization and violating the restrictions placed on the game based in the IP owner's wishes. They walk right up to the line but pink disruptors is way over it.

I'm middle of the road.

I understand the interest in customization it provided...but it was also something that was NOT needed in the Star Trek universe.

Canon Nuts > Visual Customization

From a Canon standpoint....No way, no how.

Phasers should be one color, TOS Phasers only exception being blue.
Disruptors should always be green...etc.

From a Gaming standpoint...Doesn't really matter. The somewhat observant could have figured it out quickly that your Orange "Phasers" were really something else... :D

Tho I still think having a repeating macro that rotated colors between every shot....on the USS FABULOUS!!! would have been hilarious.
