It would occasionally fall behind, and I don't think they ever updated it to know about the vice admiral rank, but mostly it worked reasonably well. I did notice that it didn't update your costume unless you beamed up to your ship, but thats kind of a nitpick.

And as long as we're nitpicking, the camera distance on the preview was way too close, with a fisheye lens. It was a pretty cool feature, though. I always like it when games have character and stat tracking you can access outside the game.

Sweet Lords of Kobol! You mean they might actually *gasp* clear out the inactive deleted characters that caused a sea of dead links and make the Captain database functional to where it updates normally?

Hallelujah!! I think I made a thread all the way back during Season 2 about the need to fix the captain database and do the housecleaning on it. I sooooooooo hope that is what they are doing right now. *crosses fingers and toes*

Don't know if you noticed but the link's been removed from the drop-down menu on the main site.

We in the 106th Fleet used this alot for verifying characters, fleet memberships, etc... This is an important tool that needs to be fixed and put back up. Yes I noticed its gone from the drop down now...

Cryptic, Please fix... Thanks!

It's probably getting a much needed overhaul. I hope....

Given that they haven't said anything more about it, and now the link to the search tool has quietly disappeared from the main page as well, I get the feeling its probably gone for the forseeable future.

I used this feature regularly. It was working well for me before the patch. Sad. :'( I hope it comes back... Any word from Cryptic about this?
