    Ugh, finally! I hated seeing the Aquarius inflate when it left my mission pod!

    And seeing the preset costume options is a big help. I hated having to check Blackavaar's guide every time I needed to make a change.

    Does this mean that my fighters won't fly off to the opposite side of the map and attack random things while ignoring my commands in STFs now? I can only dream...

    And it looks like the tailor is starting to get a little bit of much needed love. It has a long, long way to go but seeing adjustments to it starting to come down is a very good thing. Good show.

    So what's the hidden patches this week? :P
    Tour the Galaxy: Some mission timers were set to start on completion of a mission rather on start, they are all set to start on completion of the mission.

    Could you clarify what this means please? It starts our saying that the timers which began at the start of the mission were correct but then goes on to say they've all been changed to start at completion of the mission... :S
    Several issues with proper fit of the Romulan Veteran Female Jacket have been resolved.

    Any chance we can get the issues with the standard Rom and Reman clothing which have been in game since the launch of LoR sorted? I don't like seeing my shoulder blades poking through my uniforms every time I aim my weapon and or crouch.
    Join date is wrong, I've actually been around since STO Beta.

    Im glad to see these fixes being made. I'm sure the Carrier owner will be pleased. I don't have one yet, but that is a future ship to own.

    As for the costumes, glad to see this as well. As it helps me out better when there is a theme already there. And I just make some adjustments for my needs. They are really helpful to me.

    Goody! Now I get to dust her off for some ground STFs!

    I have no idea what it means, and the devs didn't seem too interested in answering this question in the Tribble notes. I ran the Tour though on Tribble with this change and there was no difference between Tour on Holodeck and Tour on Tribble - absolutely no difference at all.

    LoL so it's a "Removed Herobrine" equivalent then?

    Andorian phaser weapons have had their audio updated to sound more unique.

    If they don't sound like the ones seen on Enterprise, I will be very disappointed. And I hope Cryptic didn't change the AP sounds in the last patch to give them to the Andorian weapons, because that would be even worse...

    Players that have had issues purchasing Spiral Wave Disruptors, Jem'Hadar Attack Pets, or any other limited item should no longer experience these issues.

    Does that include being able to buy the Jem'Hadar Attack Pets WITHOUT having to have both the Dreadnought and Attack Ship, and only needing the Dreadought? Because I don't see why you would need both, especially since the only way to get the Attack Ship atm is through the Exchange for like 400 million EC.

    Fingers crossed that you won't break the game again for me. Still no info on a way to convert surplus favors, pearls or eggs in to something useful after the event ends. Like we could after the Winter event ended.

    with all these "fixes" they need to do to the carrier pets to make them "work" it would have been better to just leave them as they were. What happened to the old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". forgot its cryptic, if its good for the player then it must not be working as intended.

    Oh please tell me they go B-B-B-B-BRRRRRRR! when you fire them...
    The Aquarius should no longer appear at 4 times its intended size when launched from an Odyssey.

    Awww, that's no fun. I was hoping for the coming of the Age of Aquarius...
    Klingon Allied Romulans can now replicate Holographic Duty Officers if they have attained the requisite Commendation rank.

    I have a Romulan that has been waiting to use his Replicatior to create Emergency _____ Hologram doffs, too. Now that Diplomatic Immunity and Raiding Party are useless, it will be nice to at least get the doffs from the Commendation ranks...
    Turret Fabrication IV will now correctly fabricate a Tier 4 Turret when used by a Romulan Player.

    WOW, that is a really bad bug... glad you are fixing it.
    Tour the Galaxy: Some mission timers were set to start on completion of a mission rather on start, they are all set to start on completion of the mission.

    ...Wait, if the timer starts on completion, and the "exploit" the timer was supposed to "fix" was short-Touring... doesn't this mean we are now being encouraged to drop the mission before completion? Or was that not the "exploit" being "fixed"? :confused:

    it means your 4 hour cooldown period begins when you complete the race now, not when you started it. which means more time before you can replay it for another 350k ec.

    Dev already said JHAS pet requirements themselves would not change. So, no.

    P.S. Pisses me off royally too, as I bought a Jem Dreadnought, thinking I'd have access to JHAS pets (yes, ppl will undoubtedly say I should have checked first; but I wasn't checking to get Elite Tholian Mesh weavers either, to see whether I might perchance have needed another 400+ mil ship as well). But there it is.

    I Really like what I'm seeing for these updates today ! And also happy to see a continual update with the Foundry as well !!!

    So far, since the last update , the Foundry has Not crashed on me Once while working with it!! :)

    Which has never happened before, since I started using it.

    Another thing I'm Happy about is to see that the costume presets will now include alot of the costumes from the zen store ! This makes things Alot easier for me when I go to the Tailor, since I own alot of the those costumes.

    (Though I do hope that series One of the Next Generation costumes will be added, I had bought that one and haven't bothered getting the other one cause I don't see the point, since I already have season one, which I like better).

    Anyhow, keep up the Great work! And Thank You STO Team for all Your Hard Work!

    God Bless You All. And Live Long
    and Prosper!!!!

    For the next update to hanger pets can we please have them stay at max effective weapon distance. At the moment they get so close that the avoiding exploding ships part is a tad useless.

    Main reason I bought the jem dread. Thought I could have JHAS pets. And there is no logical reason to have the playable JHAS to buy the hangar pets, I don't even know how to qualify this kind of stupidness from patheticryptic.

    Can we have also a solution to prevent that, when the user issues certain commands, his/hers ship starts to target the freshly launched Romulan Hyper Plasma Torpedoes or pets. Happens frequently that the selected main target isn't no longer aimed when you use, for example, the tactical team and that your ship is starting to aim towards your own "spawn". :rolleyes:
    OK, if I have to stay here for a while, your cieling ... looks idious.:D

    After the last patch they don't use there Bo3 & Faw3 anymore.

    **Server stability**

    Shields up, arm weapons, take us to Red Alert.

    This sets off alarm bells after what happened last time.

    You are better off not doing these stability "updates", as they are more likely to cause more problems than they fix..
