We will be bringing the Tribble server down for maintenance to apply a new update.
ST.25.20130105a.37


General:
  • Resolved an issue that allowed some of the 3-year party popper balloons to be much larger than intended.
  • Q has been added to both Starfleet Academy and Klingon Academy.
  • Q will now provide a short-cut contact to the engineer giving the anniversary episode.
  • The sidebar in the Journal had a text update and now also provides a Hail button to get the Anniversary mission.

What's the status on fixing long-term bugs, such as the Ability Trays? Specifically, abilities being added without user interaction.

Damn, can't you rather get rid of the small balloons? I kinda like the big ones.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

Upgrade your PC instead of dragging down the fun this game still has for other players!

Bigger balloons aren't laggier. They have the same amount of polygons as the smaller versions of them, they're just scaled up. In computing, the more polygons you have, the more load you put on the CPU which results in framerate drops.

I'm going to miss the big balloons but it's also a blessing in disguise. People (myself included!) like to spawn balloons nonstop in pvp maps. Depending on camera angles, these big balloons could block your sight through a doorway or cover up your screen enough to where you can't see a cloaker about to rip you a new one.

Really though, this wouldn't be an issue if people would just lower their physics debris objects instead of complaining in zone chat. Physics objects have no impact on the game other than a few broken pieces of turrets on ground maps.
