I cant understand either why changing ships has to be so much work. Why cant thier be at least 3 or 4 save configurations options for the powers? Each one you have saved would assign the appropriate BO for you and have the powers readily available how you set it originally.
I enjoy flying various ships from time to time but hate spending 30 minutes or more re organizing my power tray! Especially if I get the urge to do some PvP after anonamoly farming or PvE. I want to switch from my farm boat to my escort quickly.
Please Cryptic. Give us some save ship config options that we can load when we change ships.
Can someone start a poll for this to see how many people support this idea?
I have had a ticket in for this for awhile now too (see this thread: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=191342). When the game first started, it used to keep everything in place when switching ships and even kits. But, ever since one of the very first major patches, this mechanic has been working sporadically. This drives me even more crazy when you have changed absolutely nothing and you power tray is all scrambled or even completely blank.
When you switch ships...your powers get messed up because you dont have your BOs assinged properly yet. When you get your new ship....bring up your U screen and hit assignments tab...place the BOs how you want them/had them and then you will only have to make a cpl minor adjustments due to your new BOs abilities you add. Go into space and you should see your powers right where you left them....if not very close.
I figured this out only a cpl months ago when switching back and forth between my ships and shuttles.
I have been talking about this since betA and I have not received a response.
It is annoying.
Part of the problem (it seems) is how it is saved on the cryptic database server.
My question is, why can't it be saved in a text file on your pc? I mean really?
And you could save, for the captain, different loadouts even per ship.
For example a pvp bo/weapon/ship configuration/action bar layout and a pve one for the same ship (let alone one for multiple).
This way you could even append it offline.
But cryptic has more pressing issues I guess
I'v also made a post about this just today, that suggests a way to implement this - My suggestion is not PvP or PvE related but rather, since BOff assignments control some of what appears in the tray, and I want to keep them in, let's say tray 3, I'd like to have the ability to restore a setup I made (this is per ship, for example when switching from my science ship to an escort and back).
The problem grows exponentially when a player likes to collect and fly canon ships – every switch he makes leads to rearrangement of the powers tray (unless he follows the half-solution of assigning BOffs before beaming up – and then what ? still there are the captain's powers to arrange…
How bad is that? why not just load a setup ? I will give those names according to the ship class and that’s that.
