# 1 Scale down the ship bridges
11-11-2013, 01:08 AM
I like the new bridge design but my only issue is the scale...way too big and way too much space between the captains chair and the helm...

Even the defiant bridge needs scaled down some...the ceiling in the hallways is too high, also the decals in engineering are on backwards on the interior left wall...

I know, I know, minor fixes

It's oversized so that the player, BOFFS, and camera can move around freely in combat. That cannot really change. They already shrunk it down a decent amount with the latest update -- too much more, and people will be complaining that they're getting wedged against their BOFFs.

And since the boffs can sometimes be blocked by a painted line that would not work.

Nor should they be. Their ships would look weird.

That's BS. When is there ever a fight on your starship bridge, or indeed anyone moving around except you and the crewmembers on the crew and engi decks?

It could be that since there are missions where combat occurs on ship bridges, Cryptic uses, essentially, a template.

There is an idea that ship bridges have grown in size over the years: compare the TOS bridge space to WoK bridge to TNG bridge. Granted the ship got bigger as well. So, given that progression, then the 25th century bridge may actually be bigger compared to the TNG style (Voyager notwithstanding).

So, from a design PoV, maybe Cryptic does not have the resources to create a specific bridge for each class of ship.

Realistically, could it be that Starfleet uses a template bridge design?

For my part, thank you for the new bridge - could Cryptic please make the BOffs actually SIT in the chair ... or at least have the fingers touch the screens they are working on?
