That's what it sounds like to me Jake.

I'm the third member of Jakes fleet and yes, this part has been a source of confusion. We've not been able to find much on it anywhere.

We completed the military tier 1 a few days ago and started the ship dock part today.

I'm assuming the provisions are the ones that we buy from the vendor at the fleet star base.

Provisions are not something that is owned by any specific player. They are a reward for completing specific PROJECTS, and go into a pool shared by the entire fleet. Whenever a fleet member purchases something that requires a provision, the fleet's pool of provisions is depleted. So, as the fleet leader, you must regularly run more provisioning projects to keep the fleet's pool of various provisions stocked.

I'm still lost, I get the contribution part.

I guess it sounds like there must be missions or projects after the starbase is completed which supply the provisions.

jake, there are NO MISSIONS to earn fleet ship provisioning tokens - it's all PROJECTS.

Whenever you do "Basic Ship Provisioning" or "Provision Fleet Ships I" projects in the future, the tokens are put into a fleet pool. Not your inventory. Not your personal bank. Not your account bank. Not your fleet bank. Not your mail. A fleet pool.

Everytime somebody in your fleet buys a fleet ship, it uses up ONE of these tokens.

If your fleet runs out of these tokens, nobody can buy any more fleet ships UNTIL you run another "Basic Ship Provisioning" or "Provision Fleet Ships I" project and earn more tokens.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots

Jake, I see you completed the shipyard already and two of the engineering projects. Now we wait.

I think I understand it better now. The vendor is what is throwing you off. It's all in the projects. (Right?)

Get better dad.

Correct. When you complete Tier 1, you get projects which either give a certain amount of buff provisions, operational asset provisions, equipment provisions, or the project that gives 1000 XP when finished. These provisions allow all authorized personnel to purchase buffs, operational assets, or equipment with Fleet Credits through contributions. To purchase a Fleet ship, you need to run a project to get ship provisions, then you need to purchase the ship from the shipyard. The one at Earth spacedock also works. There are two types of Fleet ships, the retrofit and the fleet version. The retrofit costs 200,000 Fleet Credits while the fleet version costs 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Modules which costs about 20 million Energy Credits on the exchange or $20 on the C-Store so if you want Fleet Patrol Escort, then you need to be at the right tier to have access to the ships, a ship provision available, 20,000 Fleet Credits available, and 4 Fleet Ship Modules available.

Also, one additional thing to consider. In our fleet, being very large, the fleet leadership locked access to the fleet stores initially while we built up the supply of provisions. This ensured that provisions would be available to all who wanted them once the stores were unlocked, rather than creating a race to see who could buy something as soon as the provisioning projects completed. Since you're a small fleet, and can't likely bust out provisioning projects one after the other, it might be worth a discussion to make sure everybody understands the system and no one person spends them all.

OK, Thank You. I think I got it now, an yes the vendor was throwing me off. We completed the Shipyard last night, waiting for the 20 hour cooldown now. STO is offline.
