Mhhmm ...

And when did the bug of bridge officers will be solved? (When the officers left their "position")

Because of this bug, many people want to leave the game.

This is odd. Why enforce a size limit?

I've seen the new icons presented by Thomas. Most of them are great/improvements, I think.

However, it's too bad there was no consulting with the players before pushing them out... From that thread it seems most people (including myself) are not too keen on the icons for the Engineering Armor/Resistance consoles. The general consensus being that they look too alike. A similar complaint has been said about the Tactical Weapon Buffing consoles.

Also, thanks guys for fixing the TNG Costume Pants last week. When can we see more costume fixes? There are may such issues (check out my signature banner link).

Before reading this, it was the first thing I though. I think they need more than just a color difference between them. Color is not so easy to see on a small icon, and it's a real problem for colorblind people.
The icons look cool, but we will need some time to get used to them.

1. It is now much more difficult to distinguish between consoles within certain categories. For example, all energy damage consoles look the same except for color. Similar comments apply to kinetic damage consoles, hull plating consoles, and alloy consoles.

2. Color is used to represent rarity in this game. Using color to also represent console type creates problems. For example, I can see someone mistaking a polaron damage console for an energy damage console of another type.

Thanks for the feedback on the icons, everyone!

After looking at feedback we reviewed the icons for the engineering alloys and decided that they indeed did look too similar. I've already checked in new art for these icons that still has a uniform style but is more distinct:
