Character Screen Feedback
Feedback: not a huge fan of the glowing red light behind a character. not sure if that is still work in progress but could use some work. Perhaps colour depending on the faction selected, and a little smaller so it does not overlap the ship above.

Would still be really nice if it had a background to it. (imagine something like the splash screen on the website. So you have New Romulus at the bottom(or qo'nos, earth) , and your ship in sky/space above, with your character in the foreground.

Floating in limbo is not a great improvement on what we had before.

I agree, it looks way worse then before.

If we need to have a glowing useless gimmick throw in.
How about this:

Instead of that character list, have all our characters displayed as models on screen, from left to right and when we click on one it zooms in on it, standing on a faction colored glowy disk and the ship is displayed as background of the selection screen.

Then at the botom a row of buttons, back, new character, play this character, rename etc.

i would prefer an animated (or still) wallpaper of the faction social hub, or plainly NOTHING

The red light? WHAT? I don't even... Please scrap this completely. GENERIC GENERIC GENERIC.

The light also created graphics issues on some pieces (adds an extended shadow around them):

why can't we have what is in the character creation screen for the log in set in what looks like ESD with our ship behind us instead of the miranda?

Not a fan
I don't care much for the new character select screen either. It makes it look like my character has been ejected from his/her ship, and is being suspended in some strange red tractor beam in space. My first reaction is "OMG, where's my EV suit?!?!" :eek:

The lighting makes the characters look terrible. Having the ship in the background is nice (when it works), but I don't think it really adds that much.

In some ways, I miss the old transporter room character display. Makes much more sense to see your character beaming up if they're actually standing on a transporter pad.

I don't like the red light, But I do like the Character select screen.

Honestly, I didn't mind the red light at first. But as I thought about it, I don't really like it.

For one thing. We have this great image of our characters, which we can even zoom in on, but the red light kind of wrecks it and gives some characters a weird red tint. I say get rid of it.

I would much prefer the bridge view we currently have. The 'standing in space on a glowing red beam of light' is a bit abstract.

You should have made more Light Side choices. :P
