Can anyone tell what ship (class) that is on the background to this thread's headline? Looks damn funky......
It is a ship the previous developers came up with called the Excalibur class (dunno if Cryptic is still using that name). The 'peace sign' ships in the trailer seem to be of this class, although with a different saucer section.
I think many of the 'kinks' were 'user error', rather than a problem with the program.
Having been there, I heard people forgetting to mute themselves, having their mics too close to speakers or their phone, etc.
The chat system itself was surprisingly easy to use, and the audio was very clear. You can adjust each users volume, to address those that have their mic levels too low or too high, the 'mute' system works well (Hold LCntrl+D to talk, and it auto returns to mute). I would consider it for an ingame VOIP system if I were to set one up.
