# 1 Free/Non-Unlockable Uniforms?
07-17-2010, 09:44 AM
Im just wondering, Cryptic...

Are you ever going to release any Free/Non-Unlockable/Non-Cstore uniform options?

I ask this because we are currently very limited in the number and combinations of Uniform options that we can set as Fleet Uniforms. The Fleet Window will not allow us to designate any unlockable uniforms (I.E. TNG, DS9, WoK) as a Fleet Uniform.... we can only use the default Uniform options that came with the game.

What happens when you release the Dress Uniform? will it be an unlockable also? so we cant designate it as our Fleet's Dress...

What happens when you release the Admiral's Uniform? i have a feeling that will be C-Store aswell....



Im a little mad that every uniform option that did not come with the game during initial release is designated as an Unlockable and sold in the C-Store... just to make a few extra bucks. Why not after a few months just release the Unlockables (like the TNG,DS9, WoK, Dress, Admiral) as free and non C-Store so we can update our Fleet's with more options?...

just my 2cents

If you thought putting the Pre-Order items on the C-Store made people hostile, guess what will happen if they are given for free.

to be honest... i dont really care about the Uniform options like the TNG, DS9, WoK.

I just want any NEW uniform options that are to be made now or in the future to be made available to be placed as a Player Created Fleet's Uniform. I hate unlockable uniforms and the being stuck to just 11 uniform tops to choose from is just rediculous.

I like the general idea of unlocking stuff through accolades, similar to unlocking costume parts in Champions.

I want a Doctor's coat.

FREE is a word that is not in Cryptics vocabulary.

Sad but true.

You would think with all the flamming and QQing ABOUT AND AGAINST Cryptic, they would throw us a bone every now and then. Instead they post a comments like these which only insults and patronizes us.

Thanks,

I understand that some of you are upset that the Excelsior and Nebula Class vessels are headed to the C-Store. There’s a number of reasons for this, and I want to try and address them for you.

Some people are upset because they feel these items shouldn’t go into the C-Store because they’re "Canon Ships".
I can understand this view point, and I’ll make sure to pass it along. I also want to remind you however that we use the C-store to make things that you are requesting, which otherwise would not make it into the game. So, without the C-store, there would be no excelsior or Nebula in STO for some time.

The most prevalent reason seems to be that some people feel as though they’re not getting enough bang for their subscription buck right now. It’s very true that your subscription fees do go towards the ongoing development of Star Trek Online. So, I thought I would remind you all of some of the things we’ve added since launch for free to all of our players.

PvP
“Shanty Town” PvP Map

Uniform Options
Off Duty Uniforms
New stances and hairstyles at the tailor.

Klingon
The K’Tanco Battle Cruiser
New Klingon Only Episodes(Coming Soon)
New Klingon Carrier

Federation
War Games (Fed vs. Fed PvP)
The Diplomatic Corps (Coming Soon)
Defiant/Galaxy/Intrepid Refits

Fleet Actions/Content
The Big Dig
DS9 Under Siege
New Undine Missions and Fleet Action (Coming Soon)
Weekly “Featured Episodes” (Coming Soon)

Miscellaneous
The Difficulty Slider
The Injury System
Accolades
Squad Support
Mini Games (Coming Soon)
Level Cap Increase, 45-51 (Coming Soon)
Veteran’s Rewards

Not to mention numerous bug fixes, and other minor changes and “polish”
we’ve made based on your feedback. We’re already hard at work planning Season 3 for you right now as well! Almost all of the things listed above have been things that you, our community, has asked us to make happen for you. I personally feel that the Dev Team is doing a great job of pushing out content that you all have been asking for, and at a bang up pace.

However, I’m also seeing that you guys would like to see some more customization updates included in the next big update. It may not happen for Season 2, but I will make sure to pass that along to the Dev Team so they can keep that in mind as they’re planning Season 3 and beyond.

Thanks,

Stormshade
Cryptics attituide is that they are doing US a favor by taking money off of our hands.
It seems to me that their goal is to grab as much money as quick as possible and bail (Console concept) rather than take the long road that will lead to more money (The MMO concept).

All of these "updates" should have been ingame from launch. Same with bug fixes and "polish".
They act as if they are being troubled and forced to go out of their way to make addition content for STO which is what we pay the $14.99 a month subscription for.

The point you are missing from the quote, is that the updates are free and ongoing, we will be seeing a steady flow of major season update every few months and that is a large part of what your sub is paying for.

Yeah the game was unfinished at launch, we all know that, it's old news. I think at the pace they are going we will be at a full game by season 4.

Also I'm pretty sure when some time goes by , say 6 months, some of this c store stuff is going to go free to download or as a vet reward, and set off a whole new flame war on the forums.

Just remember you can't get screwed over if you don't buy any of the stuff.

Now on topic, I think for every 3 new outfits to hit the store they should probably release one for free. I think they could still turn a profit on the development then.
