Ok...I know ths is probably a dead horse. But... I *REALLY* dislike mashing the hell out of my space bar every second to keep my weapons firing on target.

This seriously seems like a project manager at cryptic got to weigh in on 'game mechanics.' Hate it, and I mean, its awful. Could it be worse? A little, but not much.

Who is with me? MAKE ENERGY WEAPONS AUTO-FIRE!

Here's what I just posted in another thead. I realize it's a dead-horse too, but I think we need to keep re-iterating this because it's an important UI tool that we really want. Anyone who doesn't want it doesn't have to use it.

I just hit Lt-Cmdr 6 last night, so I'm half-way through this rank, and will be adding a third beam weapon when I hit Commander level science ships.

I AM NOT looking forward to having to return to spacebar-mashing, for the benefit of one phaser, like I was doing in the Miranda before I discovered auto-refire in the first place.

I'm enjoying the space combat for the tactical nature of it. Carefully timing my torpedoes and boff skills, controlling my power levels, and shield balance and facing. I do not want it to also be a button masher.

All I'm asking for is auto-refire capability for all beams. Technically I think we should have it available for all weapons, but people will be shooting themselves in the foot if they don't carefully time their torpedoes. I say let them! We should have the flexibility to use the UI as we choose.

I'm with you 100%, and this is not really dead horse... It's not a dead horse until Cryptic decides to kill it. Once they finally decide to address this issue and say "yes, we'll add it" or "no it won't be added because.... " then I will consider it a dead horse.

The game sorely needs autofire! This is not an FPS or an arcade game, this is a tactical MMORPG!

Considering I do not have a full human (or human-like) crew, I think I'll pass on that one :S

The thing is that autfore can happen. The ability is there, they just have to allow us to set more weapons to autofire. Same for ground autofire, it was there but they removed it!

The thing is full nudity is passable in the game as well.

If it stoped at PvE its your game auto fire away. If its PvP then no that would be putting the computer program in charge of the action. You may want to sit back and watch a movie but some who you will encounter in PvP might want to play the game. Although hitting the space bar doesn't take skill but it does take some effort.
