This Is Fantastic!
 
Love the new "assignment" buttons in the doff menu. This is great. Thanks, Cryptic!

Edit: On second glance, it looks as if the sector-specific missions only appear from inside the ship. Maybe not so great. Probably unintended? Better, though!

For some reason all my DOFF stuff looks the same? I had a minor patch only this am?

Go to your "Department Heads" tab and there are Assignments button to each dephead to let you see their assignments, as if you were in the ship. (Except, as I noted, sector-relevant assignments do not show here, probably a bug that will be fixed next patch)

I think its great.

Do the shipboard assignments change from sector to sector?

sorry but i prefered yesterday's mess to todays.

I count at least 15 lists you have to weed thru to find something.

I dont understand why we simply cant have 2 lists.

1) General Sector everyone can see

2) Personal and sharable

There is no need for sector, personal, 7 dept heads and 7 ship contacts. Doffing for me has ceased to be any fun.

There are some technical issues in lining up all the assignments under all conditions that we are still working on, but the end result will be:
  1. Personal assignments are available only to you. Recycles once every hour.
  2. Sector assignments are available to everyone who is in that sector and meets the individual assignment requirements. Recycles once every four hours.
  3. Department Head assignments from duty officer interface for specific categories, recycle once every 20 hours
  4. Ship interior assignments from internal contacts. Identical to Department Head assignments, but can be shared with other people by inviting them to your ship.
  5. Ship interior static assignments from internal contacts that are always available assuming you meet the requirements. Includes things like genetically engineering tribbles, assembling consoles, assembling turrets, hypos, regenerators, etc.
  6. Static map assignments from social zone contacts that are always available assuming you meet the requirements. Includes things like the basic cadre recruitment assignments, prisoner transfers, contraband turn-ins, etc. Note we are adding security officer contacts to other space stations.

Heretic can we please have 4 and5 merged into all accessable under department button or maybe have them all put into the console in the readyroom?its ok to run through the ship everyday if only playing one character but with multiple characters its no fun very fast.
And if its created this way to do more effort for the more rewarding assignments then why is it still sooo easy to do them when owning a jem hadar or galor ship?

Utterly minor second bug - using the assignments button in sector space stops your ship from moving.

Well, I guess one of the contacts IS your helmsman... :D
