Hi, Hilbert. This is very good news. Your guide has been one of my daily play companions for almost a year now.

Now on to a little problem I'm having:

Today I created a new reman character and, as with all my toons, I loaded spacebar.txt while on the first space map I was sent to, but for some reason the above mentioned command is not firing torpedoes, only beam weapons. I've tried reloading the bind file several times with the same result.

Weird thing is it still works as intended in all my pre-LOR toons, although I haven't reloaded the bind file in any of them and don't plan to, just in case.

Any ideas? Has anyone else encountered this same problem?

Cheers.

If you want to fire both energy weapons and projectiles (torpedoes+mines) with your spacebar, you should use

GenSendMessage HUD_Root FireAll
instead.

Will try that, thanks.

Still, how come FirePhasers fires both cannons and torpedoes with my other toons?

Oh, well... Cheers!

Have you set your weapons to autofire? If yes, then FirePhasers fires only your energy weapons during the initial button press and then during the autofire activations the game fires all weapons that are on autofire, inlcuding any torpedoes you may have set to autofire.

For some reason that spacebar.txt doesn't work for me on new toons. It works on old. Did u identified problem in the meantime? It happened after Season 7 was launched.

Hey Hilbert, did you notice any odd behavior with autofire in space lately? Like.. since LoR launch? Just wondering.

Does anyone know of similar guides for KDF or Romulan ships? I've been trying to apply the ideas to in the guide with lesser results than with Federation ships.

Great guides. Sad I've only recently discovered them.

Can't wait for an S8 update!

I don't want to criticize the guide, and I'm confident it helped alot of new players out for their first build. But I think the guide needs a little bit more then just usual 4x DHC 2x EptS builds these days though.

I mean the game both pugging and teamplay has taken a heavy spin (Significant changes) and there are tons more builds that can be made these days which could be classified as 'universal' or 'standard issue'. Spike builds are more viable then ever (Yeah yeah its a pain to do sometimes) but just sayin there are alot more 'standards' now then the standard bug/fleet escort build.


I just think people need to start properly both oldies and new guys, and having some variety in builds isnt so bad at all for their own curiosity and testing, you have to get off somewhere and you cant stick with the same guide build forever.

I think the next guide should get people to actually think about it rather then just copy/paste it.

Just my 2 cents.


Cheers

I was under the impression with it being a "guide" was it showed you the basics and let you modify it anyway you wanted?
