# 1 Add-Ons for STO...
01-31-2010, 04:30 PM
Is STO set up so that the community can make add-ons to enhance the game experience?

Add-ons I would like to see....

1. An Auction add on that tracks prices, etc.
2. An add-on that tracks your victories, and keeps tabs on how many of each ship class you destroy.
3. An add-on that tracks how many explore missions you have done.
4. An add-on that organizes your active missions better -- to me, the log is a bit confusing....
5. An add-on that allows you to post notes to the map, etc.
6. An add-on that tells you if a Deep Space Encounter is currently active or is on cool-down waiting for a respawn.

Just some ideas...I am not sure if STO is set up to take on Add-Ons like some other MMOs are...but it is a thought...

those 3rd party add ons have to be created first, that will probably take anywhere from 6 months to a year to be made.

STO is not set up to allow 3rd party mods. Sorry.

trend with MMO's is just to give players more customization with the UI, blizzard at one point get in over their heads with add-on's and had to change the nature of what they allow and making a bunch of them un-usable. A lot of companies looked at that, so i doubt you will see much in the way of add-on's for future MMO's
