Changeable Transporter effect
Hi all! I would really like to see changeable transporter effects. For example it would be implemented into the ship customization menu (like selecting a bridge). For example say you buy an NX class and it comes with the transporter effect from STE. Or you buy a scimitar and it comes with the transporter effect as seen in ST: nemesis. There would also be generic ones and extra ones you can buy from the c-store. Who's with me!?!?

Wouldn't say no to this but cryptic isn't known for adding this type of fluff to the game

About this.... the extant animations are linked to the race of the character. This is easily seen on Romulans when you beam up and see your allied Boffs use their transporter effect.

Thus the animation really seems to be a part of the character model and not in any way related to your ship.

The idea would probably be implemented as an option in the tailor

I would love to see the transporter effect added to each character at the tailor screen! Then I could solve the problem where my Romulan crews have BOffs with different transporter effects ... and maybe we'd even get other transporter effects like a Cardassian transporter effect for those of us flying the Galor.

This idea has been mentioned before, and being able to customize the transporter effect didn't get added in then, so it probably won't this time around.

But, we can still always hope...

And by the way, I fully support this idea. :D
