Okay. Just spent quite a bit of time revamping some stuff on the Federation chart. I've added the shield stat and graphic to all ships, and while I was add it, I've replaced all the console indicators with a numeric number and consolidated the icons into one row.

I've done this to make comparisons a bit easier, to make it look a bit cleaner, & for future expand-ability. I went over them twice to make sure I transferred the amount of each console correctly, but zoomed in looking at numbers all day may have made me bypass one or whatnot. So, if you see some consoles / weapon counts that are off, just lemme know.

P.S. I know the new indicators are missing in the "Starter Ships" section and the "Adv Odyssey Cruiser" sections. Gotta revisit these in the future. Also, on my to-do list is to create something for carriers showing pet-compatibility and whatnot, but seeing as how there's like 40+ ships coming , I may be doing that a little later rather than sooner...

Thanks! Hope u guys like the changes!

Definitely loving the changes

And other than your mentioned ships that don't have the changes, the only thing that seems off with the new changes is with the Vulcan D'Kyr. It's console and device bar is set just a little bit lower than the others... but it's a very minor change.

And yeah, 40+ ships, spread out between the Federation and the KDF... that's gonna be a handful. And as far as I've seen, every single one of the Fleet Refits/Retrofits will be Tier 5... and at about 20 per faction, will expand the Tier 5 sections signficantly. In fact, imagining you adding ships like you have in the past... would just make them look clunky and oversized, maybe ridiclious, IMO.

If you choose not to make an entire new chart just for these ships, maybe you could add them in separate rows below (rows being the standard Escort, Cruiser and Science Vessel rows).

Possibly a space between the Fleet ships and the current ships?

Edit: Oh, and also, the Caitian Atrox Carrier's device number is separate from the bar with the consoles.

Just to keep everyone in the loop:
Hard @ work on S6 changes & Fleet ships & whatnot. I anticipate having something available probably before S6 goes out, and may go ahead and post to get everyone's thoughts/reactions/suggestions to the new changes... In doing this, I may wind up leaving the PRE-Season 6 chart up too.... Not sure. Keep an eye out here on this thread (& the original post) for the latest stuffs.

Also:
I've heard the special cross-faction ships are supposed to have their stats upgraded. Anyone know what they're going to be?

Thx everyone!


EDIT 7/13/12: Looks like I missed my deadline... Oh well, I'd rather it be accurate and nice looking than rushed. I'll try to put the finishing touches on it tonight / tomorrow & get it up on the weekend.

I'm not sure how to find the shield modifier on a commissioned ship.

Well, Season 6 has launched, so the new Fleet ships are available for viewing and buying (will take awhile though). From the patch notes though, there are these small changes:

Unfortunately, I don't all know the exact numbers, but I have heard the B'Rel Retrofit got a 4K boost to it's HP. But at least you can add half of these changes right away, considering they're just text changes.

Well, they're offering another lockbox on PWE's orders, but the rewards are quite interesting:

The ultra-rare prize = Tholian Orb Weaver ship
Alternate rare prizes = Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser, Star Cruiser and Vor'cha Battle Cruiser (will have different consoles and Boff seating than the standard ones)
New additions to Lobi Store = Flyable Tholian Widow Fighter, and Tholian Recluse Carrier


This is only half of it, but this is the important ship stuff you need to know. There are no stats yet, but you're gonna need an update on the Fighters/Shuttles/Special Ships chart in a few weeks

Full dev blog on the subject is here, if you're interested: http://sto.perfectworld.com/blog/?p=612521

He probably will at some point, since Cryptic points are now replaced by Zen.

Oh and Spidermitch, here's the new blog with the stats of the upcoming special ships: http://sto.perfectworld.com/blog/?p=614731

And yeah, the Mirror Universe Assault Cruiser and Star Cruiser are supposed to look like the other version, along with have the other's stats. That is intentional.

Also, the MU ships will be able to use the standard options of the regular versions (just in MU style). This includes the C-Store ship costumes (Star Cruiser Nomad costume can be used on the MU's 'Assault Cruiser', ie the Star Cruiser)

Plus, if you've gotten it, the MU skin can be used on the regular versions.

It's fairly confusing, yeah, but that's how it is

I would just like to point out that on the KDF ship chart, the 3/4 view shot of the Scourge Destroyer is actually a 3/4 view of the Vandal Destroyer.

You can tell by the 'mouth' opening being larger like on the Vandal, whereas on the Scourge it is more closed. And the bottom 'fins' in the screen shot follows a more horizontal line like on the Vandal instead of a more diagonal/45 degree angle.

There are other notable differences, but I won't mention them as I believe I have already made my point.

Thanks.
