With Season 11.5, we’re adding a new and long requested feature from Captains who wanted greater control over the appearance of their ship.

    I knew I saw that on Borticus' screen while watching his last podcast with Trendy.
    I almost made a thread to ask about it.

    Really happy this is being included.

    Now, if only I could unify weapon colours...

    BRB grinding omega.

    Seriously though, been waiting for this for years, like nearly everyone, so I think most of us will be happy about this one.

    So looking at a ship no longer give any information about their gears? Not sure if I like that but personally I still welcome this function. Now personal visual preference and functionality are no longer compromises in some cases.

    If I can just change the appearance of my antiproton beam arrays to fire phaser beams also, it will then make a perfectly authentic Starfleet vessel.

    Yes yes yes! At last! Super stoked about this. Thanks guys.

    One step closer to using whatever bridges we have unlocked on whatever shots we want ;)

    I'm assuming we will need to actually have the visual gear in our inventory/bank?
    And now i have reason to grind for more interesting looking sets :)
  • artanisenartanisen Member Posts: 431 Arc User
    Could have revamp the ship tailor
    but i could settle for this.

    Implement this immediately, don't wait.

    If only this could be applied to the whole ship. There are a couple of zen and lock-box ships that I would never buy because of play style but I would maybe buy for their looks.

    And while I see that the majority of players apparently like this... It is not something I ever found myself wanting or needing. Is it so strange that I am perfectly fine using whatever skin my current set is giving me? I mean, I don't know, I guess cosmetics is just not that important to me as the damage I put out, which with me takes precedence over all else.

    YEEEEEEEES!
    Now gotta replay Coliseum like 10 times.

    Neither did it when the visuals were disabled which made this arguement pointless the moment it was brought into existence.

    YESSSSSSSSS!!! Been waiting for this ever since the Borg space set was first released!!!

    I'm looking forward to this, keeps everyone guessing on the real setup unless scanning the ship shows the real details which I like as well.
    Positive thoughts.

    Wouldn't a simpler and more efficient way of implementing this, be through ship visual unlocks by obtaining space sets? Then just add a tab to the ship tailor to mix and match and apply what the player likes, instead of riding up useful pieces of of equipment for visuals only.

    One would guess that They took the easiest and most efficient route to add this to the game.
    Also, one that is the least time consuming to create.

    Um, I've been playing since the 2009 closed beta and in game, looking at another players ship HAS NEVER shown info about what gear they have equipped on it (I wish it did, but it never has). What STO game have you been playing?

    OMG FINALLY!

    This is even the exact method that several of us (myself included) have suggested ever since CO did this with their Aura Slots. That was one piece of tech that I badly wanted brought over here and now it's happening.

    Forget the skill revamp, THIS is the feature I'm loving the most. Season 11.5: Space Barbie Reloaded.

    I'm so hyped right now haha.

    Weapons could use such a feature. It's nice we have it, although I personally disable visuals anyway pig-2.gif​​
