# 1 Ship customisation
02-11-2010, 05:12 PM
Every 10 lvls we get new hardwear (a new ship) between here and there we upgrade software.

I would like to see the ability to upgrade the hardware (the ship slots) itself. Say about every 4 levels (eg lvl 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32) with each ship having a max of 3 upgrade slots.

So what do I mean by this and how can this be made so it works without making people OP.

Upgrading hardware on a ship will open up a slot EG an extra aft weapon slot. These slots represent 'auxiliary' weapons/engines/shields/etc. Items in these slots suffer heavy deminished returns.

Slot 1: 50% of original damage
Slot 2: 25% of original damage
Slot 3: 12.5% of original damage

Etc. for all other systems.

Not all systems will be allowed an auxiliary slot and some systems will have a limit on how many they can have of each depending on the ship class. Eg science vessels might get an extra shield slot at 10% of original strength while escorts get extra engine slots at 10% of original.

The goal of this is to add more customisation to the hardware/layouts of ships without OPing ships. These changes will be appropriate as they are based on level and show the evolution of ships and captaining/BO abilities as they gain experience in the STO universe.
