So I popped into tribble on a new copy of my main tac to see the new things that were added (love the new traits btw) and I noticed a bit of an issue with the carrier pets, sometimes the carrier ui doesn't update as shown here: http://i.imgur.com/oo63gud.jpg
And I've done this with two different carrier pets (swarmers and scorpions, both elite) and the carrier commands not work...they seem to be stuck in their default mode when they launch or if you pre-select the command before you launch, one or two of them will follow that command but if you change the command again, they revert back to the launch protocol.
Can confirm that the carrier UI elements seem to be very laggy and slow to update. Tested this out with a Narcine and its pets, along with Yellowstones, in multiple areas. Slow to update icons showing pets launched, the countdown timer on the UI elements was jerky and lagged, and switching carrier commands similarly tended to have some lag in the UI actually acknowledging what you'd selected.
Also most of the traits don't seem to be working. I was fighting Borg on the ground and even though I have the rep trait to make them adapt slower they were adapting within 7 shots.
Also while fighting Borg on the ground on Kassik a tactical drone leap 20ft into the air and landed about 15 ft behind my away team...
I am also unable to change traits while in a mission. (not in combat at the time I tried)
Costumes cannot be changed again. Whatever customer you're wearing when you copy your character over you're stuck with. A fleet mate was wearing the Undine armor from the lobi store and he was unable to disable the visuals on it, the only thing that overrode the visuals from the Undine armor was the Solane EV suit. He was also unable to disable the visuals on that.
At least I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one having this issue tho I do wonder what got broken with the new delta rising code. Also you have never been able to change traits in missions maps since the last major patch (only in non-combat maps like ESD and Sector Space) and a few of the others have been around for awhile.
Adding my hat into the ring for the Carrier UI elements being graphically laggy. Mousing over lagging elements "fixes" them but the base problem is obviously still there.
Countdowns, changing tactics, and all other graphical elements of the two Carrier Hanger UI widgets just plain don't like to update for some reason. This is a Tribble-only issue so far. Consistent issue across a Narcine, JHDC, Recluse, and Bulwark.
