# 1 New Character Suggestion
03-12-2010, 07:28 PM
I'm assuming this is the right section to post this.



I was thinking that the beginning of the game seems very narrow in customization compared to the other aspects of this game. Their isnt much choice after creating your character.


The main place I see this is with our starting ship. I was thinking in the future it might be better if you get diffrent starting ships depending on your class. Engineers would still start with the Centaur, Science officers would start with a Light Science type and Tactical officers would start with a Light Escort.



This would let people get into their class roles earlier, and give some diversity and more of a reason to roll multiple characters because their beginning experience wont be the same as their last toon.

I don't see the point in pidgeonholding people into some specific ship class at the start when you can pick which class you want to command in the end. The whole point of the starting ship is to offer a "jack of all trades" experience in order to help people chose what they'll be flying later in the game.

This is an interesting suggestion, but I have to agree with Akwartz. The centaur class is admittedly boring to command for the beginning, but I also believe that locking people into a class at the beginning of the game would, unfortunately, take away a level of customization instead of adding one.

Well they wouldnt necessarily have to lock you into the class. I may have worded that wrong. But they let you name the ship when you make you're character, why not let you choose the type of ship as well in the selection screen.



Besides they arleady lock us into a ship class with the Centaur. So even if they did lock you into a Science ship as a Sci officer or a Escort as a Tac officer it would still provide some new styles of play that would further your interest to make another character.

Howzabout we get a Klingon tutorial so we don't have to spend any time playing Federation.

Really tired of you and the Klingon woes, go complain on the Klingon Gameplay forum.

"Locked into" a ship class implies you can't take a ship from a different class later. If the Centaur really locked us in, we'd all be flying Escorts.

generally, I'd agree with OP.
but one thing we need before you get a class specific ship at the start is: MORE SHIPS
nothing wrong with more ships.
maybe upgradeable ships? modifyable ships? (mods that effect number and type of consoles, weapons configurations etc.)
I would like to see lower tier ships have an upgraded [refit] version for endgame.
I really wanna fly an Akira, but it just sucks at endgame. you can hear the klingons mocking you just before you explode...
MORE SHIPS!
and it would be nice if the Federation, in all its wisdom, could design a space ship that has the ability to roll!
full ship control would add near infinite depth to the already awesome ship combat.
i know its not going to happen, but i still like to complain about it.

Well I never said anything about locking you into ships all throughout the game. It would just be starter ships. Once you reach LT you would obviously choose a ship.
