Ok, we love ships. Really. But please, let's make something different, ok?
Nothing wrong to win a ship, but some small or middle rewards of the C-Store promotions really are stupids. Getting consumables are ok if you need to finish any Dutty Mission or use to make your tribbles fat in the bank, but we need something different to get in the right spot.
1 - To make differents Envirnomental Suits
Environmental suits are really stupids. You can buy one for only for 100 Dilithium, but the others have the same design, only change the color and have the same stats and a really high, high hiiiiigh and really idiot price. You can buy SHIPS with 350,000 dilithium! Please! Please think better and change this
Make something better: Leave some different kinds of suits to win in some Cadre, lockbox or another thing.
The difference is about the stats and visual. You get a full Enviromental Suit with the stats of a body suit armor, and with some different looks to.
Something different for your Class. A kind of suit to Science, other to Tactical and another one to Engineer, each one with some special skills related with your own class. You can use to improve your Dilithium mining, in episode/event mission, roleplay and foundry missions!
And don't hurt make a individual version to KDF and other to FED, for each class. :wink:
2 - Useless but fun Players device: Tricorders!
Ok, you can see anytime in Drozana, ESD ou DS9 people having fun with some items. Things to use in Roleplay or to have fun can be always welcome.
Things like a TOS Tricoder, a Medical TNG tricoder, and other things. This is star trek online, please, make tricorders!
3 - Spacial Jetpack suit
Alright. We have the Envirometal Suit, but any reason to not have a Environmental jetpack suit!
Looks, something awesome to do: Float and fly in the open space around, in middle of the ships, like a small dot to other people, but you see every ship in a big escale. Or can jump direct of your shuttle or ship, floating around in outside of your ship. (Someone of the foundry authors really love this)
4 - Jet Boots:
About Jet Boots: Anyone remember one Star Trek movie, with spock flying around close to Kirk in a montain? In STO, this is a device let you flying around in the vertical indoors or in missions, with a limited altitude. You can attack, but can move a little slow, but in any direction.
5 - Novelty Holograns (Duty and and reward trophies):
If in the future we have holodecks and holograns working around in the star trek series, any reason to not have a special set of Holograns to collect?
Each duty cadre can have a small, really small chance to drop a unique account wide novelty hologran duty, like a umber-rare TOS hologran officer like Scott, Spock, Kirk, Sulu, Uhura etc in each function to help you in your duty mission.
Each Hologran have good stats and unlock a good ground trophie: A hologran of your favorite TOS character. Each hologran unlock a part of a wall trophie, and after getting the whole set, you unlock a floor trophie, with the whole crew in a hologran.
We can have others sets, like DS9, The next generation, Voyager, etc.
6 - Bridge to Bridge chat system:
If someone are using the captain's chair, this toon can chat with any friend or fleet member using the Bridge to Bridge chat system: You see the other person in the monitor (in a static image to keep simple) in your Bridge and chat with him. Both toons can chat freely in this system and everyone in the bridge can hear, but only the Toon in the chair can speak to other in another ship.
This can unlock any PvP or Duel normal game, anyway. This can be used in special bridges from the C-store or unlock in certain events or duty missions.
7 - Player Item Device: Games and musical instruments:
In many moments, we can see in each Star Trek someone using a musical instrument or playing something like:
- The vulcan lyre or other racial musical instrument
- The tridimensional chess (vs your ship computer or other player)
- The strange card game with a strange name, we never see around ingame to play but our dutys can play everytime!
- Player Poker games (dilithium, EC or GPL? )
8 - In the future starbases, a fleet member can make foundry missions to publish and works only inside the holodeck of your fleet. In this way, the foundry author can set by myself a reward to other players, placed from your own pocket or inventory to the holodeck inventory (like a fleet-holodeck inventory bank). The author can set if each player get the reward in every game, only in the first playing time or only if pay a fee to play the mission (to help to improve the fleet resources). If the reward run out, you can play but don't get anything.
