Wow, some nice work on the UI. I gotta say the trays now look much, much better.

The addition of (at least some) borders ain't bad (but I'd still like those borders more apparent).

The change in opaqueness and transparency seems to be rather useful. (Of course two sliders, one for HUD UI and other for windows wouldn't be bad.)

I hope you continue getting rid of unused empty space elsewhere in the UI as well (Doff window, I'm looking at you, for instance).


Minor nitpicks are still small instance name and time, and the impossibility to push the tray completely to the edge of the screen.

Bigger nitpicks are with the character selection screen, that's how my two toons look like:

http://postimg.org/image/o32xohkfn/
So, one's shown a shuttle overhead (instead of his Odyssey), the other's below the (only visible) belly of the negh'var (can't imagine what bigger ships like the Vo'quv or Jem dread would look like in there).
I won't even describe how terribly the "box" with available toons looks like (I hope we're soon gonna get closer to the "concept art" look shown in the latest blog.


Oh, and last as well as most important to me right now: No change to the current (on Tribble) completely borked EPtX powers. I really hope Adjudicatorhawk works on it, because it really impacts cruisers very heavily and very badly (see thread for previous Tribble patch and others).

EDIT: Oh, and could we do without the giant, always in the middle appearing dialog screen? The current (on Holodeck) smaller one at least keeps its place if we move it.

The character select screen is still not showing my characters ships, and instead showing their shuttles/small craft on every toon that has a small craft. Is there any progress on this? Am I the only one that's having this issue? I've put in a bug report for this on each patch since the LoR stuff arrived.

It's just a carry over of the same bug that's on holodeck now which sometimes says you are in a shuttle on your character select screen when you're not, I would assume.

Yep -- and yep and it's the same way on holodeck -- happens when you trade the Rom Boff over to someone for training.

Nope. It even names my active ship on the character select screen, but still shows my shuttles.

Frankly I'd kind of like it to show both.

Of course I'm only saying that now that I'm saving Lobi for the timeship shuttle. :-)

I grant you, this is a fairly minor quibble.
That's my long-term hope, and the work that went into this update now was a vital part of making that a possibility in the future.

I really hope the big "shuttle bug" (or maybe are they plenty smaller shuttle related bugs?) gets eradicated before the big release. It's been here for a while, and as they add new features, it seems to propagate further and furher.

pre-F2P cstore ships are still horribly obselete compared to their post F2P counterparts. Tier 5 ships mind you.

Is it so hard to update them to include the same boff station benefits the new ships have? You know.. the Nebula/Dkyr receiving .. SOMETHING? Making the Lt. universal into a lt cmdr universal would be a good start... my flying pancake needs love.
