Warp Speeds, few points shy of Warp 10
 
Okay, i have max points spent in Driver Coil which increases my warp speed in sector space, yet i can only max out at 9.41, why is that? I would like to hit Warp 10 and i thought maxing this out would achieve that, what else do i need?

What level are you? Your base warp speed increases with level, up to 9.97 at 50. Even with max driver coils, I think you won't quite hit warp 10 at very low levels.

Quite so.

Driver coil is a modifier of your highest warp speed *for your rank*, so you will never see Warp 10 until you reach one of the Admiral ranks, and you will never exceed it unless you have an engine that specifically allows it. (Borg Retro, Starfleet MACO, etc)

You don't quite have to be Admiral. I don't know when it ends up happening, but I know fresh Klingons can hit warp 10 out of the gate with less than 9 points in driver coils, and they get to space about level 21-22.

I stand corrected. :)

I could hit warp 10 with my 20lvl Fed. character, with Driver Coil maxed, and I think it was an escort. But then I reskilled my character, changed to cruiser, with Driver Coil at 0, and on 40 lvl I'm hitting about 9,5

I think there may be a bug with the warp speed indicator. According to mine today, I'm travelling sector space at warp 19.24

the borg engine and maco engine are faster than warp 10, are you using one of them?

With the Borg engine and points in Driver Coil you can go about that speed.

Yes were all warping around at 20-30..... EXTREAM lame... don't even have to leave ESD (at VA you just TW back and forth to Ds9 to do your STF's Dailys and reruitment missions)... why bother with borg space....(killed random encounters.. made them optional).. why bother with sector space... WHY BOTHER WITH EXPLORING THE GALAXY, it's just trek nothing to do with exploring (sarcasm)... 1 click STF/PVP (combat).... Lame and getting lamer..... just Like How stupid WoW got when we could just click and raid (oldschooers will remember EPIC battles with the horde/alliance just to hold a summoning stone like Kara and earn the right to raid....and they spent YEARS building that world to be visually appealing)..... HATE IT. just gets weaker and weaker....


BAH!!! who in their right mind would want to boldly go... spend time travelling... just to see whats there??? certainly trekkers would hate that... Again (sarcasm).

STO shields are weakening....
Just give me a plain B&W Dos screen with the options

1. STF
2. ESD
3. Ds9

I don't need space GFX or anything (that would use memory better allocated to web surfing in the background well you wait for STO to be fun)... just give me white text on a black background and launch a raid/fleet action when available....

(yes loaded with sarcasm)


Freaking LIVE the journey for F's sake... instant Gratification is instant bored too.
