With the release of the new ship hallways and bridge which I like and are great, BUT leaves me with one question about this in my mind.
When do we get to fly our ships, do battles and such from inside the the bridge?
When we do it would be great in battle to hear shields up or reinforce the front shield or torpedo spread or any of the other things that we do from outside the bridge area for battles and other items or missions.
Since I do not use the bridge of my ships, I do not see/find much use from it as it is now. Then why would I want to upgrade any of the hallways or bridges?
IF I am wrong the n I apologize. If we can fly our ships from inside of them, then I do want to know how.
The new update on the revise hallways and bridge mentioned that there are going to be missions that the hallways get blown out and such. How will the really change things from flying our ships as we currently do, which is from the outside of the ship?
I would love to see more use of the ship bridges as well. Tbh, when trying the new Federation tutorial on Tribble, it was one of the best experiences in that regard (minus the bugs... ). It would be lovely, if they added more of such stuff to the story-driven missions. Pew-pew only is nice at times, but some change would be great - especially if they put a lot of work into these new bridges - so why not utilize the awesomeness more..?
Sorry you did not get the intent of what I was asking. Jodarkrider did get what I was asking.
It is basically they (Cryptic) have spent a lot of resources, time, energy and monies on developing the new hallways and bridge decks, so why are we not able to use them when we do things from inside the bridge and such. If we were able too many more players would then spent the Cubits to buy them to enjoy the experience of the game more. And I do agree that on the Tribble server it was a very nice experience to do the Federation tutorial minus the bugs.
If we were able to do missions from inside the bridge and other areas of the ship that wee are flying and view all we see now upon the front viewer/screen it would take this game to a whole another level.
That is all I was trying to get across.
So you can play the other game that you mentioned, I am enjoying this game a lot and have got a number of my si-fi friends to start playing this game and they too really like this game.
Can I ask for a bit of clarification? Are you requesting being able to control your ship in-combat a la Bridge Commander, or are you asking for more missions to take place inside your ship? The latter would be awesome, I don't know so much about the former.
But I could really get behind more interior missions, and with the new hallways I hope that's what they have in mind.
well how hard can it be to not render the ship but render what i normally see onto the big screen of the bridge..
you could even reduce this to just having an overlay image rendered that just add some borders to the screen gotten from a bridge rendering
ofc they could do it. guess its not there cause they havent figured out a way to put a price on it or whatever
According to TacoFang in a fairly recent thread, Very Hard.
(not an exact quote and I don't have the exact thread he said it in)
This request has come up innumerable times in the last three and a half years.
Each time, it has been stated by the Dev's that the idea was discussed and rejected, at the onset of the games creation.
It may not be what you want to hear, but it's the way it is.
