The Dilithum cap is too low now. Even with the little extra I get for a veteran reward, it's still much to low now with all the projects and items. I've spent a good deal of money on Zen for a variety of things from ships to doff packs, but I simply draw the line at buying Dilithum with it. Once someone is at 0, it's incredibly difficult to built up a large supply when you can only refine 8-10K a day. I don't mean to say it's hard to get Dil (it's time consuming, especially for Feds, but even so for KDF with their much broader options for Dil), but with all the places to dump it, it means you either have to leave your fleet hanging because you're saving up for some item, or you never get to buy the items because you're using your Dil to support your fleet.

I fully understand and appreciate the reasons for the refine cap, but because of the substantial sink in place for Dilithium now, I think it should be raised substantially (~ double what it is now).

The "General Recruitment" mission that gives the tradeable DOFF pack costs Dilithium, but the other four department-specific recruitment missions (that give two DOFFS each on success, three on a crit), and the three race-specific ones at the Academy (that give one DOFF each on success, three on a crit) are still free of charge. Players will be getting about 30% fewer free DOFFs over the long term with this arrangement, and upgrinding for qualities higher than green will be pricey.
How many Starfleet Engineers does it take to exchange an Anti-positronic Photon Emitter?

Maybe, but the Foundry doesn't work so why bother? (either that or it's that damned lag <.<)

You won't be needing green or higher duffs for starbase projects anymore, so there is no need for upgrading to the next higher quality anymore.

I agree either lower dil requirements or remove/double even triple daily cap.

When in PvP, I get a window that I can't close saying the fleet action has 0 players. This is annoying as it takes up space on my screen. The Starbase (whatever one it is) seems fine for a single player but way too easy in a team. The last build you pushed to Holodeck and on Tribble has digital audio drops. This needs to be fixed!

Meow, so the value of 'liffium needs to be raised again, it's sunken to 130 sumfin purr Zen at certain days. That's why they're putting 'liffium almeowst everywhere.
