# 2 Tricorder update, Agreed!
06-07-2011, 10:38 AM
I would agree that the Tricorders in game could use a bit of attention, and I understand that a lot of other updates and changes do take priority, but I'd suggest that perhaps just simple (emote) updating of the tricorder could be made.

Perhaps the ability to select your preferred tricorder at this time may be too much to ask, but at least updating the model within the emote/animation to a more (Nemesis-era) tricorder would be more appropriate for this late in the timeline. It seems like a reasonable update that wouldn't take too much time or resources to implement.

I also understand that the TNG/DS9/VOY version used would probably be the more commonly associated image of the ST:Tricorder that most people have in their mind. So the decision to use it in game over the Nemesis-era does make some sense. Even if it's a continuity mind-boggle at the same time. :p
