Fleet Starbase Improvements

Captain's Blog Stardate 90239.66

So far we have been given three featured projects for Starbase interiors. While all three have been nice, I think Cryptic needs to add a little more to them.

Let's start with the blast shields that blocked the windows of the Ops deck. Does anyone else feel there should be a console that can open and close it? I know, its open all the time so we can see outside, fine. Its still our starbase, let us be able to close it if we want. Also, I would LOVE to see ships flying around outside. Cryptic actually toyed around with this at Earth Space Dock, but from what I understand, they couldn't get the tech right so they stopped it. If it worked fine we would have ships flying around Earth Space Dock and we would see them from the interior.

On to the plants/decorations. They are a nice touch to the base. I actually really like the way they look because they give the base a nice atmosphere. Honestly, there isn't much more that can be done with any of this. So on to the Tribbles/Targs. Now to be honest, I like the Targs roaming around the base. The Tribbles on the other hand annoy me. Yes, we can go talk to that Tribble guy and have him clean them up. Still, I would like the option to have them turned off all the time. Also, why doesn't he sell Tribbles? Does anyone else find that odd? Maybe its just me.

Finally, every chair in the station needs to have the "sit" option. Can someone tell me why when I go to that office on the Tactical Deck of the Fed base, I can't sit in any of the chairs? A little help here Cryptic. For now I use the /sit commands which is fine, but double clicking is just so easy haha.

I really like these featured projects that Cryptic has been giving us. They really make the base come alive which I'm thrilled for. I am concerned that the base could become too cluttered with these featured project rewards which is why I think they all should have an on/off "switch". Give the fleet leaders the ability to turn on or off a featured project's reward after it has been unlocked. Maybe we don't want plants around our base, or Tribbles rolling around all the time. Its just a thought.

What are your thoughts on all this? Any ideas of how bases can be improved?

I'd have to agree, in fact the ability to be able to turn on and off all of these features is a common thread on the forums. I too love the plants but I can certainly do without the tribbles. They add nothing for me.

I too would also like to know why you cant sit anywhere. Especially in the KDF station with that gorgeous hunting lodge style room! Just think how we could sit in there by a roaring fire and sing songs of glorious battle!

Come on Cryptic!

Its good to see how well the bases are progressing but I'm finding that I'm either coming online too late to donate much to the base or I'm just not quick enough :( (probably the latter LOL)

Just my 2 penneth....

The Tribbles don't bother me too much. I just jusm on them and watch them scatter to the four winds (if you can have wind in a starbase). I tried telling the Tribble-Vendor-Who-Doesn't-Sell-Tribbles to clean them up, but he ignored me.

Dancing Orions at the KDF Starbase? K'Bamek may have to visit the place to check that out.

P.S. Maybe Nemo Jones didn't ignore ne after all. I just went to the Fleet Starbase to file a Commendation Report and there wasn't a Tribble in sight.

The nice thing about the Tribbles is that you can speak with Nemo Jones, or whatever his name is, and have him clean up all the Tribbles.

As for the Orion girls, he was only joking, hence the "jk" at the end lol. So far there hasn't been any indication that we'll have dancing Orion women on the KDF bases.

LOL No the next "special" project gives us a bigger bar and tri-dimensional chess for Fed and a "rearranged" ops for the KDF. Bring on the Orion girls I say!! ;)

Hey, where were you guys last night? Nasin, the nearly naked Orion, was dancing up a storm at the KDF Starbase but nobody was there.

Seems we need to get our own supply of Orion girls since the demand is very much alive! mmm but we would have to level an alt account Fed to 25 before to have that option... bummer

How is your Starbase coming? We got our level 2 shipyard last week and just finished our level 2 Starbase. But we are down to 3 main contributors as many fleet mates went to star wars

It is coming along great. The tier 3 starbase project is in progress. We have reached tier 3 military and tier 2 eng and sci.

Good to hear!! Sorry I seemed to have double posted - my Internet is down and I'm stuck using my iPhone. Does your fleet allow people from other fleets to join with alts? I dont really have time to play much but I have been a big fan of your site for a long time and an occasional donor. Keep up the great work!!!
