# 1 Too much red in ship interiors
08-14-2010, 01:12 PM
I know the Klingons have red consoles and such inside their ships, and there were some episodes showing this, but... it's overdone in the game in my opinion. They also had some orange consoles and such in the shows/movies.

But the overall feeling/lighting on the Klingon ship interiors feels *too* red. Can this be reduced a little bit please devs? I'm not saying get rid of it, just reduce it a little and add a little more normal lightning.

Look at the interior of Martok's bird of prey on DS9. Hardly any red in comparison to what we have in game. Can we more closely match Martok's BoP's interior lightning/coloring please?

Thank you.

I agree, but the red in Klingon ship interiors isnt nearly as bad as the blue in Federation interiors. blue consoles and lighting. At least Klingon interiors have some white lighting...

Probably just need some alternate Bridge interiors. In the real world, for humans anyway, red lighting is less distracting, so better for critical thinking. Faster adjusting to darkness than full white light also.

With the exception of the IKS Pagh in TNG, Klingon ships were never that red inside.

Even the IKS Amar, our first look inside a Klingon ship was not exclusively red.

There is blue, green even a little yellow.

Especially due to the enhanced budget, Klingon ship interiors became more sophisticated over the years.
As did the computer consoles.
The interiors and equipment should look a lot more like this:

Sure, it's darker than a typical Federation ship, but it's grey, brown and the interfaces are a combination of red, yellow and green.
And I'm pretty certain they'd take as much time to create as the red ones we currently have, they'd just have to switch the colours from red to green and yellow occasionally while doing them.

I think the interiors themselves are okay except for the ready room and engineering, which is pretty red. The default bridges are pretty red I don`t really like the look of it. To alleviate that, I bought some Bird of Prey bridges in the C-store, which gives me six options but sadly only two, possibly three gives you a less reddish colour scheme.

That's the interior of Dukat's cardassian freighter, though. You can tell by the cardassian consoles.

I like the lighting and style on the K't'tinga from the Undiscovered Country film. Less dark and red, but still had a Klingon feel.

Do you have Anti-aliasing turned on? I had these same horrible glowing bits until I finally turned of Anti-aliasing and I'm running a 8800 GTX, so not like I've got a trash vid card, but something tells me it's a problem with the coding.
