It's like someone else said on the forums the game was designed and implemented on running for maybe a year or two without any expansions. It just seems like they have an over abundance of artists or they are the only who ones who are working. You would think they would spend their time more wisely fixing broken mechanics as well as other broken things as well as creating content to keep the game going. I guess they think wow they will really enjoy doing the FE's 1000 more times if they have a new set of gloves to wear while doing it.

Thats a little over the top mate. The textures are allready there in game (the new Defiant interior) its just a case of hooking them up to the consoles. Im not saying ignore all the bugs in the game as I agree the game needs more polish. Im just suggesting that "in the future" it would be nice to see more Federation/Starfleet style LCARS displays.

We had these blue wannabe LCARS long enough
The consoles on ESD did actually look like that during closed beta/early open beta and it looked really nice.

Thats what Im talking about. They look so much better. If the devs could hook those up to the current ESD consoles it would look so much better.

ESD still appears like a mismatch of random elements to me. Its far too busy and cluttered, while being ridiculously scaled on everything. The only thing I like is the shipyard view and that's about it. They need to stop having the concept of a "space shopping mall" in their heads and try to match the starship interior design which is usually minimalistic and practical.

I still think we should have more levels and the Turbolift should take us to any of them. The Medical Bay should be an entire level, not a single room. This is ESD, not a starship. The Admiral's Office should be in the lower tower, on the Offices level. The Club should also be an entirely separate level, not scrunched in next to Requisitions. Additional areas could be added as well, like a Holodeck and a Gymnasium..

There used to be a textures mod that changed the blue LCARS to more colorful ones, but people on the forums ran the author away from the game completely. A pity, too, as his mods really made the game so much better.

Yep, I think Cryptic gave him a Cease and desist order thus the reason you don't see him around any longer... Got mine however, this was his website at one time http://www.sto-advanced.com his mods were excellent what a shame IMO...

yap, this mod was nice, but however this was no real lcars. In the new Defiant, it is. So i hope, we'll see this LCARS on esd next time
