TribbleBBQ agrees with the 1st post, we too have been discussing things and what we need. Also was thinking about if a 2nd fleet bank box could be made, 1 box for regular permissions, 2nd one for Highest rank or owner only, this way if your saving for "tabs" no one can wipe you out even with limits in place.
Also we need longer log files of activity, we tried to track down a issue but logs werent long enough. Even if they could be saved to a txt file too could be a cool future idea.
Another BIG thing in our eyes is we need sub-fleets. Here how that works.
You register your "main" fleet This would be considered your "Clan/Guild" but as you know STO has other factions.. so what happens when more playable races happen? Your "Clan" would be spread too thin or making it very hard to manage. So idea is this. You can link "sub fleets" which the roster or so would stay attached to your main fleet for management or least keeping everyone in the same "clan" So Our fleet and site are TribbleBBQ but when we do a Klingon side one, it would be Tribble BBQK which could link its info to the main list. This way everyone isnt seperated. (Which sub-fleet sub channels for chat would be good too) Otherwise its almost like trying to run so many seperate guilds... which defeats the purpose of trying to make one solid group if you have to micro manage 2x factions (and soon more im sure)
Also its HIGHLY agreed for notes about members. Would be good to write info about someone so everyone knows who that is or whats up or their roles.
Even if you cant do it in game I would like to see a longer (passably week at a time to view) log of the ins/outs of bank activity. We in Tribble BBQ experienced a 300k lost in the fleet bank EC and due to the limits of the current log length could only track 125k of it. Perhaps set it up to where its it can be viewed via the main game web sight when you log in and have a high enough access level to your fleet. Could also add a bit of potental remote fleet interactions this way too.
As far as additional game suggestions I've really only one big one and its that the max vertical tilt you can make for assent/decent in a ship at times is insufficient. I know of a few case where it interfears with map progressions and in some cases in fights can actually leave a mob attacking you in a "blind spot" directly above or below your ship.
- Last login date field in Fleet Roster (as in City of Heroes)
- Fleet Event calendar function (Warhammer implementation of this was reasonable)
- Fleet Logo creation (banner system in Warhammer for a good implementation of this)
We desperately need some sort of "last activity" field.
With quite a few people not renewing after the first trial month we need to work out which ones are still active so we can kick the rest. My fleet is already getting quite full, but how many of them are active players? Who knows at this stage.
I completely agree with, and endorse, the fact that we need to see some new features for fleet control.
Public Notes Box (WoW feature)
Officer Note Box (WoW feature)
@handle to be listed in the Log
Bank Tabs to be cheaper or use stepped pricing.
More Ranks (suggest 10)
Member last logged in (WoW feature)
Member joined date (would be really nice)
As a Fleet leader it is my duty to protect the Fleets assets AND it's members from abuse. STO can help by giving me the tools to do this.
