# 1 Order of Boffs in Login Screen
12-26-2013, 09:08 PM
This is kind of a silly question, but is there a way to change the order boffs appear in the login screen (from left to right)? I know which boffs appear depends on how I set up my away team, but I've changed up the order of the slots of my away team and it doesn't appear to affect the order my boffs are displayed when I log in.

If may jump in with a slightly related question, my bridge crews don't show up on my loading screen; what setting did I accidentally tweak, and where is it so I can turn it back on?

@no09dysonsphere - I've wondered the same thing often.

@generator88 - If you press 'U' and then go to the Stations tab, below the shipboard stations is an away team list. Have you got your Boffs in there. Usually the login screen shows the Boffs you have assigned to the away team.

Right, I can set my bridge crew & away team, the issue is that the bridge crew has never showed up on the loading screen. That was supposed to become a thing at some point, right?

Edit: I'll just double-check everything next time I'm logged in (I'm not home at the moment).

I believe it has something to do with how long they have been in your crew, the BOFFs that have been with you the longest will always take the two positions next to you when they are assigned to the away team.

That seems too awesome for a feature cryptic would code...

FWIW, I figured out what I was doing wrong. In my entire time here, I have always selected my away team solely from the window that pops up before beaming down; it was never set from the Stations tab. Once I did that, they whole gang started showing up on the login screen.


Thanks,

I spent a day or two playing around with this.

As best I could figure out, the boffs appear next you in a numbered order.

So if your away team section looks like this

Security
Security
Security
Security

The first boff will always be on your immediate left, the second on your right, etc.
You can limit how many boffs you have showing, any slot left as security will be blank.
I can't figure out what governs the poses they take, I'm pretty sure it's the total number of boffs showing, following each's specific profession.

Tacs have rifles. Engineers have PADDs or kneel next to some kind of emplacement, and I've seen sci's with 2 kinds of tricorder, the regular TV remote one and the two-piece one with the little hand scanner in the other hand.

LOL. I completely agreed.

Anyways, i checked that security teams will not appear in the login screen if you have em as in the away team.

Yes, they are ordered by when you got them. Also they are your actual away team in-game. Best (and only) way right now for you to rearrange them is to manipulate the trade feature with a trusted friend of the same faction so that which BOFF the game thinks is the oldest one is to the immediate left of your captain, the newest BOFF on the far right, etc. Basically, if you trade an away team member away and get it back in a trade, the game will consider it a brand new BOFF and move it down the list.

Hope that helps.
