# 1 D'Kyr Discoloration
04-09-2012, 08:19 AM
Just a quick question in regards to the D'kyr and her nacelle ring failing to change colour under the influence of cosmetic shielding and if/when this is going to change.

From a purely cosmetic point of view and in regards to universal immersion the ships big bronze wheel tends to stick out like a sore thumb with any of the coloured shields activated most notably:

- Jem'hadar shields
- Reman prototype shields
- Omega shields
- Borg Shields

Again this int a huge thing but i do enjoy flying the D'kyr as its unusual look is well outside the somewhat conventional look of federation ships and as such ripe for role play which as i pointed out is rather messed up when certain high level shields are applied.


This really inst a huge thing but i though perhaps this thread could be used to find other ship/shield visual issues and bring them to the fore.

Don't count on a fix. Usually when the devs release something, they never go back and fix it, no matter how broken it is.

I've noted this too. It recolors the Tal'Kyr support craft rather than the D'Kyr. I've also noted that the two left most point on the two rings glow when opening a tW conduit rather than the main ring.

Also the ring spazzes out if the support craft joins up again also its a bit disappointing they didn't fix thing when they released it

Dito^^. I really wish this would get fixed. I've been searching and searching for a solution or mention of a fix in upcoming patch but nothing.

This was mentioned a looooooong time ago, right after the Aegis set came out.

The answer, at that time, was that the Devs didn't have the tech to re-skin the warp ring with the special sets (because it 'moves' when the shuttle is launched, if I recall).

If that's changed since then, there's been no word.
