What we need is the ability to set specific active doffs to specific ships.
Forinstance I'd love to have my purple astrometric scientis tired to my Tuffli freighter so I always have her slotted when Im going around transwarping around the galaxy instead of having to remember to slot her everytime and then unslother when I go back to a fighting ship.
Slotting certain doffs to ships, as if they were consoles, would benefit some people, but it would be a bit of bother for others, having to unslot doffs from ships when you want to put them into the ship you are using.
e.g. a shield distrubution doff, great for any combat ship, having to unequip if from a science vessel to an escort.
Plus it technically adds the to the amount of Doffs you can have on a character e.g. a max of 400 limit, + 5 for every ship in your shipyard? (some people have verrrry extend shipyards)
While its a nice idea, i cant really agree with it
But maybe some kind of consideration for the Tuffli, seeing as it is a unique vessel to say the least (perhaps adding 'astronomic slots' to it and it and no other vessel)
I am affraid that with Gozer gone, The Duty Officer system is going to start collecting dust (development wise)...
Appearently Cryptic works in the way that a specific person takes control over a project from day one, and then sticks with it... However that seems to also mean, that if the person leaves, no one will think of it again.
But Yea... your ideas are nice, and it would be nice to have them.
Gozer was the god of STFs. Heretic did Doffs. Archon and Borticus do Doff stuff now.
And the Doff system had been passed to them even before Heretic left, when he moved over to holdings. And holdings haven't been gathering dust since he left, either - there's a major expansion of it for S7 and it's been getting incremental little additions since it launched.
