along with the awkward looking pics, I want to point out something else that might be interesting for update/fixing.

I noticed with one of my Captains (who has a winter scarf/jacket) that it seems to only show your character in whatever is in their default/first uniform slot. Any changes to the character outfit but not to the first uniform slot do not get reflected in the picture.

Ok suppose Im about to face you in PVP
I go onto "spy central" and find out your weapons rig and consoles

suppose you are tetryon heavy
I change my ARMOUR and Shields to counter

suppose you are armoured against plasma
I change my weapons load to remove plasma and replace with Tricobalt

most of what you write here is visible in the game anyway...i see if you use tetryons, i see if you use plasma torps...i see your antimatter spread, etc...

other console stups are just a nobrainer...a good fleet tac escort retrofit will be using 5 consoles of the same energy type, or some builds for PVP are "just" cookie cutter builds with little modifications.

so the infos you can get are available anyway to a certain degree, you just need to look carefully and have an idea of how the gamemechanic functions...this takes dedication ofcourse...with this new tool the less dedicated have a little edge now, if they actually use that info, which is doubtfull given the experiance from other MMOs with such tools.

# 46 Maintenance :(

Why is the gateway always under maintenance. At least stop for a while to let people test it!

I've never had ANY issue where it said down for maintenance. You guys' must be having a local issue, maybe? Perhaps it just doesn't like IE?



My only true issue is that the gateway does NOT update uniform changes correctly. The first time I changed my uniform after using it the gateway updated within 13 hours. I changed it again, and it has now been over a week. Also, for some reason it displays my shuttle as my active craft and not my actual ship irregardless of which one I am really using.

I look at the profile pictures, and the only thing I could think of is a poorly-drawn 3D model.
It looks egg-shaped.

I've managed to login into my gateway, but from what I've read in this thread so far, it looks like I am having a totally different gateway experience than everyone else.

=>First, 2 of my toons have been transfered and it's only the ones that were on tribble server; I also can't see any way to "add" my other toons (I have 5 total).
=>Second, everything is outdated in the gateway, everything looks like the setups I had when testing tribble just prior season 7's launch.
=>Third, how is it that people can see my builds? How can I see other people's builds?

I'm one very confused trekkie.

Edit: Never mind lol I figured it out. It WAS a different experience and it makes so much sense now why.

I was on this server https://gatewaytest.startrekonline.com/#/login
I should have been on https://gateway.startrekonline.com/#/login

Bonus internet points if you can spot the difference *wink*. Anyways don't ask me how I ended up there.


As a side note, it looks like you have to type https yourself, or your login won't be secure.
Edit edit: Ignore side note, it turns out any sto player with a proper login can see your things, suffice they have your nickname@handle.
