Battle Bridges

I don't know if this has been brought up before and if so I apologise but has anyone ever thought that the ship maps are lacking battle bridges?

I know RP'ers would like them and Foundry authors could find them useful, but just wondered if it has been thought about before?

    You'll get my "+1" to any request involving new interiors ... unfortunately, several devs have mentioned they are reluctant to divert dev time and resources to interiors because they aren't used heavily by most players and players haven't been particularly interested in buying interiors from the C-store in the past.

    That said, I think the devs need to revisit this topic. In the last year I've watched a lot of STO players drop out of the game and now the "core" of STO players (at least the players I see on a regular basis) and the majority of the people who still put real money into this game are the hardcore Trek fans who are the same players who appreciate more variety (and better) ship interiors.

    Don't believe the lies in this forum. I am NOT an ARC user. I play STO on Steam or not at all.

    I agree the whole area of ship interiors needs looking at, Rom's need a lot more variety, KDF layouts don't make any sense, and areas of fed ships we saw in the TV and movies are missing all together.

    But as you say, if they are a low priority then I guess it's wise not to hold ones breath waiting for them, I'll end up looking like a blueberry!

    Unfortunately, That is the case, I wish it wasnt. but it is. The Devs dotn care much for the Roleplayers anyway.. I am a heavy Role Player. its my passion. I was hoping for the risian cruiser to have some sort of custom interrior. but to Quote Crypticquak:


    Cruiser Customization Clarifications:


    There is no playable custom interior space for the forest/islands. That would be an incredible amount of work, and this ship was already tons of work to begin with.

    So.. they basically dont want to work on any new interrior for a ship thats not in a lockbox. In my opinion.. all they care about is money.. which is why after i saw that post. I decided to not give another peney to Cryptic/PWE. They are milking all the money they can out of STO. and most likely it will be killed off in the near future. like. 2-3 years from now.. I know where the Doom thread is.. but i just thought i should add this.

    And if the devs are reading this, it would be easy to "counter" the growing attitude among the players that PWE doesn't care about STO and the sense that this game is on its last legs if the devs would do "something" that makes it look like they care about interiors (which matter to all us RPers out here).

    I mentioned in another thread it would be a relatively simple compromise if the devs just allowed players to use any bridge that they have unlocked for that character when customizing ships at the ship tailor. For example, if I bought the Odyssey and want to use the Aquarius bridge on my Vesta then I should be able to do so (instead of the Aquarius bridge being limited to the Odyssey).

    It wouldn't require the devs to spends months creating new interiors and would be as simple as removing restrictions so players can use the bridges that they've already unlocked for that character.

    Sure, it isn't as awesome as getting a ton of new interiors, but at least it would show the players that the devs understand our complaints and are trying to address our concerns within the limits of their VERY limited resources.

    honestly Interiors Would Have Been Used If The Devs Had Tied The New Crafting R&d Into The Ships Interiors Example Science Would Be Found In Science Bays Medical Bays Would Have Anything To Do With Drs Tact And Security Found In Armory Engineering R&d And Even Ops Found In Engineering .. Just Like Some Of The Doff Missions Be Alot Better Then That Huge Screen Taking Up Half Of The Monitor...

    Battle bridges IMO should be ship-specific, and should only unlock after purchasing the Z-store version with the separation console. Namely Odyssey Operations, Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, MVAE, and Haakona. After purchase, I think it should unlock for all ships of that category. As in all Odyssey variants, all Exploration Cruisers, all Advanced and Mirror Patrol Escorts, and all Advanced Warbirds.
