I just spent 800 Zen on two bridge packs one was the Sovereign and the other was the Emmisary pack. I was very disappointed to find out that most of the bridge officers are not even sitting in the seats right and some are even half way into the floor. This was a lot of zen for a product that is below par of what is expected of an item when paid for with zen. I just wanted to warn others before they made the same mistake. I wouldnt think it would be to hard for them to make a few adjustmeants and the npc placement would be fine but I do not see them taking this kinda of time to work on them. Love the game but do not like to be sold a product that is not to standers of what the other bridges are that can be purchased.
Um..... That's normal for ship bridges. the only ones that don't have this issue are one where they're standing. it used to be that consoles were manned by duplicate BOffs. Hehe.... yeah most if not all bridges used to do this thing where they'd show your BOffs in multiple locations simultaneously.
But yeah, bridge packs are like costume packs, except that no one can see them unless they're on your ship. I got a few that looked cool, but not that many.
I understand your frustration. These issues are over 2 years old. Sto is very different now. The ship interiors are legacy. The function bridges are the ones that came with the bundle packs or premium ships. Those were only released over the course of the past year.
These bridge packs are a legacy product of a bygone era of the pre-s3/s4 8 month content drought that cryptic can't go back on. The way they handle bridges now is different then how they were and the only way for them to fix it is to literally remake every bridge. Until they get enough traffic on the bridge that will not change. the last attempt to try to bump traffic was with the doff contacts. Most doff contacts are no longer needed as long as you can access them from the department head tab or from the fleet starbase. Only extreem dofferes will still go there regularly for things like alien artifacts.
Since people have bought them they have to leave them accessible in the c-store.
That's horrible. I hope Cryptic fixes those bridges.
I certainly wouldn't hold my breath on that.
Believe it or not, this has been a subject of discussion since 2010. The only movement we got on the issue was the addition of the TOS interior, and the Defiant/Belfast interior, which are very nicely done and much better than the other bridges. Oh, and the timeship bridge and the Odyssey bridge. But, those are locked to particular ships, so not much use unless you fly those ships.
However, we've been told that to redo these bridges would take way too much time, effort and money. We've begged the devs, pleaded with them. Some even tried bribing them...I think, can't be too sure on that...anyways, as you can see, it's now 2013, 3 years after launch, and we're just not seeing the work getting done.
Its quite obvious that this is considered a non-issue by the devs, and don't expect the status to change anytime soon.
