Tired of reassigning all the Boff everytime I switch ship.
Can we have the option to save the Boff assign to the bridge station on everyone of our ship?
I switch ships depending on the situation and how I want to play depending on my mood and it is a bit annoying that I have to reassign my Boff every time.

While on the subject on saving Boff assignment, can we have the option to save several different away teams? Let us save different combination of our Boff to choose from in a away team so we can pick and choose our tactic and play style on the fly.

YES, this would be great to have saved BOFF configurations. :)

Then don't switch ship

sry, but my BOFF setup stays exactly the same when i switch ship...if it was a ship that i previously already set up. A new ship will allways be empty.

if i switch between my 2 escorts, everything is in place on my second escort. When i switch back to my first all boffs are setup and ready to go, so are all boff powers in the tray of both ships...allways.

the only stuff that gets inbetween are weapons on the tray...i remove them manually, or put them soemwhere in the 10th row.

not sure why it is not functioning for you, for me it does.

saving configs would be a nice feature, but i don't know why my boffs seemingly randomly go missins when i get back to my ship. can't they even have ONE configuration remembered? thank goodness our clothes are not so loosely connected to us every time we load into a map... but really it's annoying to find a ship with vacant boff stations

A request for BOFF and DOFF configuration save.
This would be great. I usually fly one ship, but I picked up the free Warship and the constant BOFF and DOFF switch-outs are tedious as I fiddle with configuring the new ship.

Don't switch ship - what a stupid comment.

I currently switch between my Chimera and Tactical Escort Retrofit and re-assigning the boffs is a pain, especially if i forget to do it before going in to an STF. The tray is now set out so that all the powers go to the same place, but it would be nice to secure them in place or for the boffs not to be removed when changing ship. Maybe when on the ship selection page, it shows you which boffs go where for each ship, instead of having to sort it after its been set as active.

Yeah, it's a deeply stupid comment, but that sort of troll-happy BS seems fine here, so...

OT: I too am SO sick of this. For me it started with S7. Once I assign Boffs and tray designations why in the world would the devs NOT see having to do it all over again everytime I change ships as a MAJOR interface problem that needs to be corrected immediately.

Hey, what happpened to that fix for the equally idiotic ship "repair" interface? Last I heard dstahl said that he was aware if it. That was, what... a month ago?

I have yet to try it, but say you put the boff/captain skills of ship 1 in rows 1, 2 and 3. You could then switch ships, reassign stations and whatnot, and then put the boff/captain skills of ship 2 in rows 4, 5 and 6. Will that avoid all the problems? Just switch to the new rows when you change ship.

This may work, or fail completely as a remedy. For the sake of argument, wouldn't it be just GREAT if they started fixing these sorts of issues, instead constantly producing more?
