Klingon Ship Customization Wishlist.
 
I think Klingon ship customization needs alot of work, so I have decided to go ahead and make a list of things id like to see added for season 2 or a later update...either way...it needs to be done. Feel free to post any other additions you'd like to make below..im trying to avoid the issues with the current ship models...those issues are in another thread. These are things id like to see added and worked on in the fairly near future.

Klingon specific windows...currently all we have is Fed TOS style windows...they look like arse on Klingon vessels...we need square yellow/off white windows on our ships.

K'vort class ship for T5...dont care whether its on C-store or not...I would do anything to get a good looking B'rel style ship for T5...the K'vort is basically a big B'rel with upswept wings (and YES they are upswept...I just watched an episode of TNG that had 2 K'vorts attacking the Bor'tas with Gowron and Worf on it..so I know...also play ST Legacy if you must get further confirmation )

More Klingon ship materials...right now all we have is the grey/dull green color for Klingon ships...what ever happened to Klingon ships being deep/vibrant greens...look at the below pics for further inspiration:

The Enterprise style BoP looks cool as well, its nothing too crazy...but worth taking inspiration from:

The overall detail on Klingon ships is obscene, sorry for being harsh...

Season 1 saw an influx of several new Klingon ships designs...the BoP being the worst of the bunch..it looks like a Mosquito...the BC one looks like a Hammerhead shark. Please be more original with your designs, believe it or not...whether your care or not...this game is not as Star Trek as many would like...and this is partially due to some ships designs not fiitting in at all. The Vo'Quv was actually a fairly decent design...I applaud the team for that.

Klingon nacelles (the red parts of them) need to glow red alot more...the glow would make them look a little better..kind of like the below pic:

Allow us to put the blue/red/yellow/green klingon symbol on our ships...I prefer this colourfil insignia over the current dull grey/black/grey one:

I shall continue adding ideas to this thread as I come up with them.

I vote yes to more ships for the Klingons.

Would be nice to see some Orion and Gorn ships also.

Variants proposal - Basic idea
 
How about Variants to presently existing Hull types?

What I mean by this, is in various books, novels, RPG supplements etc, Klingons generally used the same hull types and outfitted them to specific needs.
Ie: Science version of the K'tinga. or perhaps Raptor....etc
The visual effect was a slight variation to the pre-existing hull types, such as a modified boom, or exta stuff on the hull that reflected those changes

CV version hull types:
For example in STO, we have the BIG carrier...what about smaller versions of it?
Why not have a T2, T3 or even T4 version? With perhaps smaller modules that could go on the bay.
Modify the K'tinga or Vor'Cha with these bays and change their weapon slots and Console and BOF slots and POOFY WHALAA! A carrier version (or Science if you prefer).

DEG/BCG Variants:
How about Missle boats? (also known as Drone escort or Drone Cruiser)
A variantion of pre-existing hull types with modules that have torpedo like drones that fire from the pods,
These drones would move faster than say a HY Plasma but slower than the standard photon, and could be shot down. You could even have specialized drones, like Scramble sensor drones, drones that lock onto the target and increase the klingon sides accuracy vs that ship. Drones that intercept slow moving torps, Drones that increase evasion for the ship etc etc etc (yes I realize I am taking ideas from SFB drone ships)

Visually it wouldnt be a HUGE task to create the models for these as one would use the pre-existing hull types of the already present Klingon ships (this is canon as Klingons are rescourcefull and rather than designing all new ships, simply modifying pre existing ones..hence very little industrial modifications needed in the ship yards) with some visual changes to represent the modified hull types.

Now while this might mean some development on the devs side, you give the klingons 1)More ship types
and 2, you give them specialized ships they can call their own and set them apart from the feds. With the CV (carrier) variant this isnt too far a stretch as they already have carriers that set them apart, this just gives them lower versions of it as well.

With this type of thought pattern in mind the possible hull variants are now open to the imaginations of the Devs to create new specialized ship variants for the Klingons while using the basic pre existing hull types.

Thoughts?

Ack I meant this to be a new topic. I will repost as a new topic

although nice suggestion, your wasting your time...

klingons are at the bottom of the to do list buddy in terms of customization

There were so many mods with various ship designs that they could have used for inspiration and never have , it's a shame . All you needed to do was search . Heck there's even an old thread with peoples submissions of designs.

I've two designs I slapped together a while back and specifically and public stated Cryptic could use if they chose. As Magnus says , it falls on deaf ears.

I was hoping....just hoping since soon all Fed T5 ships will have a C-store variant they can throw a couple Klingon C-store goodies our way (K'vort)

Klingons will be getting more uniform customization in season 2, so they arent at the bottom...just nearing the bottom.

I would say we arenít even at the bottom with 100,000 sub left in the game the KDF arenít even on the radar yes your getting your dress up toys the ones they already had built.

Great NEW though a Raptor C-store bridge yaaaaaa

Maybe some good stuff may come one day but really will there be anyone still here
