I quit playing this game over a year ago. The reason was I could not customize my action bars nor did I find it easy to navigate the galaxy. I run a Logitech G15 keyboard and could not rearrange the action bars to simulate the keyboard layout.
Have they allowed mods yet? Would love the return to the game but not unless they have either allowed more flexibility with action bars or allowed mods to let us customize the screen for our game play style.
i don't know about the exceptions or the actual rules, but what from what i know, you can't legally mod an MMO like Star Trek Online
Thats not true, games like WoW encourages modding.
I remember when the game was in beta the idea of allowing players to mod the game was brought up, no idea what happened to it though, I do know there was a site that offered some UI mods but they were told to stop sadly.
