How about a project for a Horta hatchery? There's some eggs out there...all alone...

Maybe add some functionality to it so we can make Horta pets that scour the outer surface for dilithium, data samples, particle traces, and other goodies.

This has always been a suggestion in every single discussion about every single limited time project. And it really comes down to the unscrupulous and inventive players of the game who don't want to play to the spirit of the game.

Fleet breaks into two fleets. The main fleet and the alt fleet. Projects come up, and people leave one fleet en masse to reduce the project costs. Whether they rejoin one at a time to keep the cost low or not is irrelevant. Once the project is filled with 'small fleet'-level resources, the members all rapidly rejoin.

They reap the benefits of a small fleet simply by playing 'musical fleets' and moving around keeping each fleet roster low to game the system until the time comes to have a new project.

These players exist. They exist in large numbers. There will always be unscrupulous players in every game and whenever an exploit is there, it will be exploited. Cryptic learned their lesson on this one that there is no honor system on the internet.

You have your other human beings who will exploit the game for their own benefit to thank -- it is because of these unscrupulous players that there will never be fleet project requirements based on roster size.

TL;DR - Unethical Players is why we can't have nice things.

im sorry but the " vanity" projects have for the most part been very week tbh considering the investment needed for them i mean think about it.

when vanity projects first came out for the starbases, we had to pay 200k dill for opening a shutter that i think i would have done myself with the tractor beam on my ship, with the same dill i could have purchased alot of functional items with that amount including a lvl 40 ship or multiple mk XII rep weapons.

now if you want to make a 200k dill investment worth it you need to step up your game on the quality and quantity of the upgrade in hand.

Example:

lets use a possible embassy upgrade could be an exterior courtyard out front of the embassy comleate with garden fountain decorated pillars and social seating areas nicely decorated in a style that you get to choose so it could be in romulan, klingon or federation style, giving you a choice of decor mkaing it alot more worth the 200k investment while giving a slight bit of ****ionality rather than just "here is a 200k dill project for some vines in your embassy" or " galaxys most expensive fish tank with barely any fish for the price of 2 starships"

Funny part especially with how these things use the player as a host for these so you can't park any characters in these people can't justify getting these for the most part when they aren't visiting them but maybe once to get the special gear heh.

I don't think these would get so much hate if they were half priced or if more things occurred in them. At the start, there's very little reason to visit your Dilithium Mine or Embassy, so making it pretty just feels like a waste. If there were more missions or story things in them then upgrading them would be far more worthwhile.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Quoted for truth! You hit the nail on the head centersolace!

Does this unlock the floating dilithium in the exterior of the map too? I recall seeing that in the P1 video, as well as on the Dil Mine map.

There shouldn't be hate at all for these projects. They exist as a source of fleet credits for big fleets. They are purely cosmetic with nothing essential about them. If you can't afford it, you aren't missing anything, so don't queue it in the first place. Why is that hard to understand?

You know what else is scheduled to occur before the end of the year? Christmas. And Thanksgiving. And Halloween. And 4 whole months.

There should be a damn site more than just Season 8 between now and the end of the year.

Less BS answers please. I'm still hopeful they will take another shot at fixing Science before the end of the year. Probably self deluded I know.

Yeah these posts remind me of this nukara rep thing being hog wash and on top of that the game is getting kinda dull might have look elsewhere for awhile if this season 8 is just as bad.
