Being able to able to train a space skill when you invest 6 points into whatever ability itís attached to is great.

Not having to level a skill to 9 just to be able to train something is much better than I thought it would be.

Now if you invest 9 points in space abilities it will be because you choose to master or max out that ability.

Iíd like to make a suggestion to help with the ever-changing skill system.

Could we please take the ability to train Science Team 3 and Engineering Team 3 off of ground skills that have nothing to do with said abilities?

Both Science and Engineering Team 3 belong attached to skills that are now found in T1.

I canít remember the names of the Skills but one skill clearly states that it increases the effectiveness of Science Team and Extend Shields and the other skill clearly states that if helps with hull repair.

Attaching Science Team 3 to a ground skill that only increases the damage of science based ground skills never made any sense to me and the same can be said for Engineering Team 3.

While on the subject of ground skills

Would it be possible to give ground based skills their own pool so skill points?

Maybe revamp ground based skills so that instead of having skills level from 1-9, make them go from 1-6 with 4 points being all you need to have in the a skill to train whatever ability would be attached to said skill.

A system like the one Iím suggesting would make it possible for players to lightly invest in their ground skills if they just want to train something or max it out without having to make a huge investment.

Iíd take the current amount of skill points that we have (72000 I think) and cut it in half and use that number has a base for all ground based skills.

So for your space based skills you get 72000 or whatever the current cap is and for ground based skills youíd get 36000.

It would be better if we had a different skill system that awarded Space experience for completing Space missions and ground experience for completing ground missions.
If any mission involves both space and ground then the experience awarded would be split evenly between to 2 respective skill pools.

Iíd say just tie ground based into space based skills; however, that would make about has much sense has tying Science Team 3 and Engineering Team 3 to ground skills

Thanks for your time
