Powerhue...intended?
 
So I saw a player with purple phasers, so I asked him, hey, how did you get the neato phaser? Well he told me (and if it's a known issue or not, who knows). So I did it and found myself with pretty blue phasers.

Is this intended? Heard it was something from CO.

It's not intended, each weapon has a specific color on purpose.

I won't say unless a Dev says it's ok. >< Unsure if it's a bug or an exploit. Don't want to get mahself in trouble.

haha no kidding, I want purple phasers. I mean, sure, they're not lasers so we have no idea how the hell you're capable of changing the color, but damn its still cool :P

I suspect it's a Dev command that probably was not intended to slip out to the live build. This kind of thing happened to Cryptic before back in City of Heroes. Let's just say I would not be surprised if an upcoming patch magically makes it disappear without any patch notes to explain it one way or the other.

The good news is that we may eventually get an "official" way to use this command via the ship customization GUI editor. Consider this command line command a preview of coming attractions. ;)

It's something from CO that allowed you to change the color of your powers. It was intended in CO. Dunno about STO.
