prevew of things in exchange??
 
Not sure where this should go but any way

looking through the exchange, I have no idea what a lot of this stuff does
say looking at a photon torpedo, would be nice if you hovered over it to get like a quick
video or animation to see what it actually does.??

would that work??

I don't understand. What would you need to preview, exactly? All photon torpedoes look like all other photon torpedoes.

You can right-click on the item to see its description.

yeah i know that but still doesn't help much

Actually, I'd love to be able to preview a weapon, armor or kit on my avatar before I purchase it, similar to previewing weapons and armor on other MMOs on the auction or in inventory by right-clicking or CTRL+click.

I really see no reason STO shouldn't do this.

Transwarped thread to the Controls and User Interface Feedback forum, where the UI devs are more likely to see it.

What's so special about seeing a preview movie of a red colored torpedo? You can't tell that they're different from Blue Quantums or Green Plasma?

I think something like this would be better for new players, and such placed in the academies, like a holodeck exercise/interactive library interface, maybe even test flight a few ships?

Having it on the exchange (which is still broken enough) seems a tad pointless :p

(just my thoughts on the matter :p)

miloguy 08-25-2012 09:38 AM

yeah maybe something we could use on the holodecks or have a holodeck
on our ship, like the atronomics room voyager had
