for people who don't know what FoV (Field of View) is, here is a animated gif that pretty much sums it up:

i am using a 1920x1080 screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and i get horrible Fisheye Perspective in STO because the FoV is not set properly.
when i had a 16:10 1680x1050 screen it was the same thing,
chances are this is a gamewide problem (and yes my settings are correct!).


look at these pictures and you might understand what the Problem is:
http://www.16-9.net/lens_tests/fovs.html


it means objects at the edges of the screen get skewed.
if i keep looking at the edges while looking around i get sick in my stomach.


a Planet that is a round BALL, is not looking round any longer when i'ts on the edge of the screen.
everything gets disformed.

a character that looks thin in the center looks fat at the edges...


many many tribble builds ago i took these comparison pictures in STO:

http://img2.imagebanana.com/img/2t06...1201210922.jpg <- wrong FoV
http://img2.imagebanana.com/img/r03f...1201172318.jpg <- correct FoV

this was only shortly in a build on Tribble, then of course the Dev's decided to keep the one with the wrong FoV
this was only in the Tailor screen, so who cares...
but the whole game is looking like that.


please Dev's be so kind and play around with the FoV for high resolutions a bit more...
i'm honestly getting sick of this Fisheye View the more i pay attention to it.

i'd change it myself if there was an OPTION for it, but there is none.
