# 1 A Matter of Major Concerns
09-04-2010, 07:36 PM
This is about the purchase of the refit ships. As I understand from the description, it states as follows:

"Purchasing the ship from the C-Store unlocks it for all Vice Admiral characters on the account." - extracted from C-Store info.

My interpretation of the above statement suggests that this will be account-wide. However, what I do not understand is why is this not the case?

My Tactical VA toon originally got the Defiant Refit from promoting to VA. And I decide to purchase the Galaxy Refit to give it a try, so I spent CP on purchasing it.

Now, I log on to my Science VA, and I find that if I want to use the Galaxy Refit, I need to purchase it again? Now if this is meant to be account-wide after purchase, then this is broken and not working as intended.

This is a very upsetting development. I would like a Dev to address the following concerns:

1) Are the Retrofitted ships purchases Account-wide as stated?

2) Or are they only for the individual VA characters?

3) Is this only for Emblem purchases or that it includes CP purchases as well?

I'm not sure how many players have the same issues, but I, for one, am definitely not happy about it and would like to have some clarity.

How were you trying to "use" the Galaxy Retrofit on your Science VA? If it's anything like the TOS Enterprise (and I imagine it would be), you need to claim it in the C-Store for each character that can use it.

The refits are special. If you buy one in the C-Store the cost for it at the ship vendor at Earth Spacedock is set to 0 for you. It's in an FAQ here somewhere. Wait a minute.

Edit: Found it.

When an alternative character reaches Vice Admiral, they will be able to claim this C-Store purchased ship from the Ship Requisition NPC. This ship purchase WILL NOT appear under the 'Special Unlocks' tab.

Would just be nice to have a set amount of level ups for a ship from 0-51 vs buying any ship in the C-Store.

Example: Player likes one certain ship, say a T1 ship. As the player levels up, there is added stats and console slots, bridge officer slots, etc, for this player selected ship. This could be accomplished with a set amount of stats from Level 1 to 51, so for major rank promotions, the level increases would be in effect.

I can see the C-Store for fluff items (uniforms, respecs, costume parts etc) but all ships should be avaliable to everone in the game without having to purchase them in the C-Store.

Thanks for all the feedback folks. Really appreciate it.

Tho i think cryptic should consider making an update on the C-Store after you have purchased the ship so that it'll be less confusing.
