# 1 NEW IDEA: Ship Refitting
08-24-2010, 06:53 PM
In the interest of fun, which makes people want to play a game, and thus makes more $ for the game company, I suggest making it easier for people to fly the ships that they LIKE. Being a huge fan of the Akira myself, I really like the thought of being able to fly it into battle effectively once again.

The primary thing I propose is the ability to upgrade a ship to be equal to a higher tier of the same class (changing everything but crew compliment). I see this being a simple service costing about as many credits as buying a ship of the new level. For example, for a few 100,000 credits, I could get my Galaxy class to have the weapons, hull, consoles, etc. of a Sovriegn.

This could be an option for promotions; you either get a new ship for free, or get to upgrade your old ship for free.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Second function of re-fitting: letting you re-assign console slots, as well as officer posts (for a reasonable EC fee, of course.) This way, You can better outfit a ship to your own needs and play style, once again making the game more fun, and thus increasing & for Cryptic.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: Third Function of Re-fitting

At VA level, you can change what Uber power you have, so could, say, wind up with a Defiant that has Rengerative armor, or a Science vessel with a separating saucer section, (Admit it; you want to see one of those RA level Science blimps separate as much as I do. :3 )

I was sitting here watching ds9 thinking when i get home i shoudl drag all my equips from my tier 5 escort onto my defiant and just keep using that since it is my fav.

just wasn't sure if it would be viable/survivavble enough to enjoy at higher levels .

would be nice if we could bring our favourites foward with us.

Quite condescending.

OP, your idea might not be very canon at times, and as it stands now, several refits are available already.

The economy, at this time, is quite inflated. I think paying with EC to reassign consoles and things like this might be gamebreaking, especially on the final parts of the game. Consider the Universal slots!

Yes... new idea..

A good one? ABSOLUTELEY... New? Not really.

There have been several posts regarding this topic since launch, but so far the best that has happend is the retrofits.

While this is not a new idea, I support it, and so do alot of other people.

I agree. I just got to Admiral rank and wasn't happy with the loadout on the tier 5 science vessels. I would prefer to fly the Sovereign cruiser and have it decked out like a Science vessel, but I don't want t play the ship like an Engineer would.

As a result now I'm canceling my account. I was going to cancel after playing out all the single-player content to Vice Admiral, but now I don't want to have to go through the hassle of having to learn how to play a cruiser ship with reduced science abilities.

For single-player content you should be able to build out a ship to your classes strengths regardless of what ship hull it is. But for PvP the current ship specialization is fine if nobody is complaining.
