# 1 Cleanup on isle CSTORE???
10-16-2011, 02:13 PM
So i was looking through my ship collection on the CSTORE just so i could plan what to get next, i had been pretty sure i had purchased all vessels fed side and even had them on my character.....and yet the store while saying they are unlocked has the cstore points listed as if i could purchase them again which was confusing for a second.

Almost all of the ships are simply listed as free, meaning i've purchased them already, but it has the "nebula science retrofit, long range science vessel retrofit, Exploration cruiser retrofit, and tactical escort retrofit listed as unlocked but have the cstore points below them. Even contacted support and they verified that those particular ships are listed as purchased on their side.....so why do they show up differently in the cstore? Almost had me thinking i had to buy them again.

Also strange that most ships you can claim directin from the cstore pull down and yet others you have to go to the ship yards to get another if you deleted it like i had......

If you aren't proper rank to claim them they show a cost (even if you bought them on a higher ranked toon), but if you click on them you can't spend the c-points to buy them if you already have.

Remember also that VA unlocks (token) are per character.

If you knew all this, I'm a bit surprised you'd be fooled into to thinking otherwise, but if your idea is to nitpick, meh I don't see a problem. IMHO works fine, isn't hard to understand, and really simple. Don't forget it prevents you from buying something you already have account wise.

Forgive my response if your intention was just another flame on cryptic.

Agreed, they do need to work on the c-store interface a bit to make it easier on customers. Unify how purchases are shown and such a bit more, i think this could definately be done as a part of free to play since the c-store will be a big feature there.

I for one wouldn't mind a list of all the things i've already bought (greyed out if unobtainable on my current toon) in it's own window.

The current c-store interface works better than the old one, but there's definate room for improvement in there.

Was just thinking they need to clean up the interface is all. And while there may be a distinction between unlocked and free.....it doesn't jive as i was lookin at them from my VA toon. AT some point i had used a token for one of them, the long range science i believe. But i never aquired any othres with tokens or other in game methods so its just strange that they are displayed differently.

Meh.

They did a great job with including the C-Store on the main site, though I wouldn't mind a chance to see a receipt of sorts, so that i can, at a glance, see what i own and what I don't own.
