I think Klingon ship customization needs alot of work, so I have decided to go ahead and make a list of things id like to see added for season 2 or a later update...either way...it needs to be done. Feel free to post any other additions you'd like to make below..im trying to avoid the issues with the current ship models...those issues are in another thread. These are things id like to see added and worked on in the fairly near future.
Klingon specific windows...currently all we have is Fed TOS style windows...they look like arse on Klingon vessels...we need square yellow/off white windows on our ships.
K'vort class ship for T5...dont care whether its on C-store or not...I would do anything to get a good looking B'rel style ship for T5...the K'vort is basically a big B'rel with upswept wings (and YES they are upswept...I just watched an episode of TNG that had 2 K'vorts attacking the Bor'tas with Gowron and Worf on it..so I know...also play ST Legacy if you must get further confirmation )
More Klingon ship materials...right now all we have is the grey/dull green color for Klingon ships...what ever happened to Klingon ships being deep/vibrant greens...look at the below pics for further inspiration:
Season 1 saw an influx of several new Klingon ships designs...the BoP being the worst of the bunch..it looks like a Mosquito...the BC one looks like a Hammerhead shark. Please be more original with your designs, believe it or not...whether your care or not...this game is not as Star Trek as many would like...and this is partially due to some ships designs not fiitting in at all. The Vo'Quv was actually a fairly decent design...I applaud the team for that.
Klingon nacelles (the red parts of them) need to glow red alot more...the glow would make them look a little better..kind of like the below pic:
How about Variants to presently existing Hull types?
What I mean by this, is in various books, novels, RPG supplements etc, Klingons generally used the same hull types and outfitted them to specific needs.
Ie: Science version of the K'tinga. or perhaps Raptor....etc
The visual effect was a slight variation to the pre-existing hull types, such as a modified boom, or exta stuff on the hull that reflected those changes
CV version hull types:
For example in STO, we have the BIG carrier...what about smaller versions of it?
Why not have a T2, T3 or even T4 version? With perhaps smaller modules that could go on the bay.
Modify the K'tinga or Vor'Cha with these bays and change their weapon slots and Console and BOF slots and POOFY WHALAA! A carrier version (or Science if you prefer).
How about Missle boats? (also known as Drone escort or Drone Cruiser)
A variantion of pre-existing hull types with modules that have torpedo like drones that fire from the pods,
These drones would move faster than say a HY Plasma but slower than the standard photon, and could be shot down. You could even have specialized drones, like Scramble sensor drones, drones that lock onto the target and increase the klingon sides accuracy vs that ship. Drones that intercept slow moving torps, Drones that increase evasion for the ship etc etc etc (yes I realize I am taking ideas from SFB drone ships)
Visually it wouldnt be a HUGE task to create the models for these as one would use the pre-existing hull types of the already present Klingon ships (this is canon as Klingons are rescourcefull and rather than designing all new ships, simply modifying pre existing ones..hence very little industrial modifications needed in the ship yards) with some visual changes to represent the modified hull types.
Now while this might mean some development on the devs side, you give the klingons 1)More ship types
and 2, you give them specialized ships they can call their own and set them apart from the feds. With the CV (carrier) variant this isnt too far a stretch as they already have carriers that set them apart, this just gives them lower versions of it as well.
With this type of thought pattern in mind the possible hull variants are now open to the imaginations of the Devs to create new specialized ship variants for the Klingons while using the basic pre existing hull types.
Ack I meant this to be a new topic. I will repost as a new topic
There were so many mods with various ship designs that they could have used for inspiration and never have , it's a shame . All you needed to do was search . Heck there's even an old thread with peoples submissions of designs.
