Honest question about Starbase 39.
 
Why was it changed? I mean, the extra balcony thing in the first room is kinda cool, but overall did they forget the maintenance/lighting bill? Did they decide to go into power-saving mode?

Cause now it's very dark, very... un-starfleet. Before it was a bright, well light Federation starbase. Now it physically looks like a Starbase, but is very dark, and just... not feeling right :/.

was there 2 days ago...noticed no difference!

maybe check your light settings, or give a screeshot!

Yea, sounds like some sort lighting setting.

Seems like a lot more crud to dodge around as you run through it.

Other than the change to the front balcony, i haven't noticed anything different, especially not the lighting.

I like how dark the interior is now, reminds me a little of some of the interior shots in Nemesis. I love the green glow coming through the windows too, if only they were a little darker and the system outside tuned to match it'd be perfect.

EDIT: Someone asked for a screenshot.

Previous (This is the only previous picture I could find but it does show the much brighter lighting that was there previously).

I have to say, I do like it a lot more now. K7 also got a makeover, whoever's going through them is doing a good job IMO.

If it was lighting settings, one would think all the other stations/planets would be affected.

However, ESD, DS9, etc... All are how they were/have been lighting wise. Only 39 got darker.

Um, when I go to Starbase 39 it looks like "previous." Perhaps you're getting Starbase 39 confused with Starbase 82.

Yeah I keep doing that, confusing social zones with STF maps.

I couldn't squeeze any more sarcasm in if I'd tried

Yeah, thanks Militis. That's what I was talking about.

I see the darker Station 39 (Screenshot taken from the transporter room doorway) and not the older, brighter one (screenshot taken from upper level)
