# 1 Account wide unlock for ships?
03-10-2013, 10:19 AM
I know all the bundle and costumes are account wide unlock.
However I don't know if individual ships are.

Can someone confirm if ships like the Kirk's classic Enterprise, or the San Paul Retrofit, even the Escort Carrier is unlocked for account wide or just for one toon.

Also if I dismiss one of these C-store ship, will I have to pay up the zen again to get it back just like the c-store Boff and pets?

It has been some time since I played an alt but I was able to use my c-store ships on all my toons. It is why I purchase the packs.

Any ship I have bought on the c-store can be accessed by toons of the same faction,
Dismiss a ship you have bought from the C-store, you can reclaim, but not the equipment that you may have on it.

But things like special consoles you will get again if you reclaim the c-store ship.

The only ones i know of that dont count as c-store unlocks, are ships unlocked PRE-free to play sto,

# 4 c store ships
03-12-2013, 06:33 PM
i have the enterprise pack with the enterprise ship, how would i redeem it on another toon, that is also in the federation, when i goto the ship guy it wants me to pay another 500 zen for the ship. so i figured i must be doing something wrong, or they dont share on an account? which is keeping me from buying anymore ships from the cstore. dont think its worth having a low lvl ship that i cant use on lower lvl toons when i outlvl it with the toon its on.

This may be a bug, try clicking another ship then clicking back the the one you have already purchased.

I believe your additional toons have to claim it from the c-store menu rather than the shipyard. There's a 'Legacy' tab or something it should be under I think. You don't have to pay for it again, it just isn't attached to that character until you go into the c-store to get it.

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

Try claiming the Enterprise Pack, instead of just the ship.

I started a thread already about this. It's a bug and I'm not the only one apparently with this problem. http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=497091

Edit: WOW! Just noticed I started that thread in December 2012 and it's STILL not fixed. -.-*

Pretty much, almost everything you purchase in the C-Store can be claimed on any other character on your account. Excluded purchases include: extra bank slots, extra ship slots, extra BOFF slots, extra costume slots, and extra inventory slots! The list can actually go on and on, but these are the services that you will most likely purchase that are NOT transferable on other characters on your account! If you want the full list, you can check the C-Store tab in-game! (the account-wide purchases can also be claimed on foundry characters, if any (just so you know))

Not entirely true. If I discharge a C-store ship and then reclaim it again for free, it comes will all of the standard common quality weapons, engines, shield, and deflector as well as any special console.

That is a bug and I have the same problem. In fact, I reported it months ago.

For some reason if you purchase the Enterprise Era bundle, the ship by itself is not marked as being owned even though it comes with the bundle. The NX-01 ship shows a price of 500 Zen by itself in the C-store and also ship requisitions.

However, in the C-store select "Bundles" then "Enterprise Era" and you will see a "Claim" button on the bottom right of the window. Clicking the claim button will give you the NX-01 light escort ship (make sure you have a free ship slot). As far as I can tell, this is the only way to claim the NX-01 light escort, and it is an account unlock so all of your federation characters can claim it.

All C-store ships are account unlocks and can be used by all of your characters of the appropriate faction. All other ships, as pointed out (fleet, lockbox, lobi, etc.), are single character unlocks and you would need to purchase/obtain 1 for each character.
