# 1 Dom Jot
02-11-2013, 01:49 AM
While working in the Foundry, I came up with a possible idea to get Dom-Jot into STO.


Instead of making it a minigame, given we have artificial objects that move when touched by the player (like Tribbles and Balloons), why not make a terrik (Dom-Jot ball) that has weight and you hit it with the stick (stick is equipped and you use an attack function) and the attack moves the ball into the bumpers. The more lit bumpers it hits, the more points you score. But you hit unlit bumpers, you lose your turn.
NO to ARC!

Sounds a bit like star trek pinball.

Debris objects (Tribbles/Balloons) are rendered on the client side (on your machine) and are not synced up between players. Hence, your machine may decide that you've scored a point, and my machine said you didn't. Doesn't make for a great game.

I would love it if we could create special debris objects that could be synced up for use like this.

I would still like to see a dom-jot mini game. Something like pool online (http://www.miniclip.com/games/8-ball...ultiplayer/en/).

If you could pull it off, then it would open up tons of opportunity, not only for STO but other Cryptic games as well.

Dom-jot can actually be mathematically described as ((Pinball+Carrom)/Billiards)*Awesome.

All games featured in Star Trek need to be included in STO as mini-games. Give us a reason to hang out at Quarks more often. Not only Dom Jot, but other games should also be included like Fitzbin, Tongo, 3-D Chess, and even regular poker since it was played a lot in TNG.

Anyway I look foward to seeing if there is any sucess in this, too bad foundry probably wouldn't work for getting those other games though.
