Well sometimes the lack of a bonus is easily seen as a penalty.

Personally I'd rather see my character pull out and work with a PADD if I have the doff panel open, with of course, an option to disable that. That would be more immersive to me, seeing as we are never actually going to interact with the DOFFs as we might expect to were we actually on our ships.

  • Development Assignments from the bridge & Ready Room.
And so forth.
I love running around my ship for no other reason than the slim chance of a good doff assignment when I get there...

:p

(I'm much rather see my Department Heads in their Sections. A captain doesn't necessarily need to micromanage every section--that's why he/she has section heads).

Yep, like you said that would be a penalty. I love the Doff system, but that idea is sooo far from workable. I can't imagine anyone doing it but the OP, and then even he would stop after having to do multiple zoning to do a few clicks for one or two assignments. Go ahead and test it yourselves, pretend there is a bonus, and every time you want to assign or read the report as a mission finishes, do the zoning and see how annoying that would be.

By that kind of twisted logic, that would mean that we get a "penalty" for playing the game all times except when there is a Q bonus event going on. Of course, that is nonsense. You simply get a bonus when playing during that specific time.

You can say whatever you want, but it is still false

Sounds good to me Nagus. On a somewhat related note, are we going to be seeing our Doffs on the bridge at some point?

It would be cool if we could add the observatory lounge as a sort of conference room. You would go in and all your department heads would be seated around the table. You would take your seat at the head of the table and start reviewing the Doff assignments. It would be kind of like a senior staff meeting where the department heads make suggestions on which crew to assign.

This would of course be optional, and would not require going to the staff meeting to make Doff assignments.

I think that would technically make them Boffs(bridge officers) =P

Hehe. I guess so. The reason I ask is because I thought the current issue with duplicate Boffs was somehow related to the Doff system? Don't know for sure but thought I'd read that somewhere.

I was irritated when the Ready Room console for accessing Mission Replay was removed recently. The value of interiors dropped immediately. I still want that console restored in some way.

And would enjoy this additional option to access the Doff UI though out my starship interior. Great idea!
