We will be bringing the Tribble server down for maintenance to apply a new update.
ST.30.20130416a.3

General:
  • The Dilithium Store is now selling Warp Cores to KDF characters.
  • Updated the mouseover help text for Warp Core and Singularity Core.
  • Singularity Cores will no longer drop with enhancements for powers that are gained above their equippable level.
  • The Earth Spacedock ship equipment vendor now sells Mk XI Shields, Engines and Deflectors.
  • Traits:
    • The damage bonus for Plasma Weapon Specialist was lower than intended and has been increased.
    • Plasma Weapon Specialist no longer grants its damage bonus in Space instead of on Ground.
    • Saurian and Andorian captains will now begin the game with the appropriate number of traits selected.
  • Already existing Klingon players can now play missions in the Empire tab of the journal.
  • Extra Crystal Shard items from the Crystalline Catastrophe event can now be discarded.
  • Resolved an issue that sometimes made weapons appear to stutter and cease firing at their targets, especially in shooter mode.

UI:
  • The reticle colors have been updated.
    • Consistently across all factions, allies are now blue, enemies are red.
    • Player allies/enemies are different shades of these colors.
      • Player allies are green-blue, player enemies are yellow-orange.
  • If you do not have a slot unlocked you can no longer progress in character creation.
  • Resolved an issue where the tailor would not display the character after creating a new character.
  • Updated the names of costume presets to eliminate the prefix.
  • The ground tailor now has a holodeck-themed background image.
  • The character's rank and species no longer overlap the Rename and Delete buttons on the character select page.
  • Players with customized HUD layouts will no longer have target windows and self-status windows that are much too large.

Known Issues:
  • The Klingon Mission Journal is currently being re-worked and some missions may not yet be available to existing Klingons.
  • Neither Klingons nor Romulans are available for new characters.
  • The C-store is disabled.
  • Traits cannot be changed or updated.
  • Players on Wine will need to use a workaround in order to play.

Still no word on EPtX abilities?

I guess its safe to assume its not going to change any time soon.

Shame. Was looking forward to LoR.

Honestly, at this point the Tribble patch notes could just have at the top in big letters: "No Romulans, No 1-20 KDF" and people would just stop reading

We're barely a month away without any testing on these Romulan ships, balancing from thousands of monkeys banging on them, no bug testing for the missions.

This will not end well.

This is making the foolish assumption that there is zero in house testing going on.

Two words: Romulan flamethrower.

Two other words: Andorian escorts.

Four other words: Romulan Embassy Bridge Officers.

They do have a habit of getting "close enough" then sorting it out in a couple patches. Or a whole bunch. I understand working to a sechedule is very tough with this kind of game, but it has ruffled some people no doubt.

I was in the tailor playing around with one of my Alien Boffs...couldn't change her nose at all. Also, you guys should put the rest of the Reman parts into the tailor, like the nose and the forehead. But that Reman complexion is incredible. But seriously. Noses.

Also please again I'm beggin ya, a way to minimize the face and hair select. It's WAY better than it was when it was first uploaded and I applaud that, but most of the time I'd just rather it wasn't there.

I can confirm that they are doing at least some internal testing already, and have been for a few weeks, I'm ingame friends with some devs and have seen at least Branflakes on a Rom toon on several occasions (he plays a Romulan tac named B'Randon, in case you were wondering)

That is the big problem, their in house testing sucks. I still question if they do actually test stuff past it not making the server implode on loadup.
If it doesn't, it is good to go!
