    Interesting, touching up the Pilot Ship consoles? And buffing Gravity Well's control effect again?

    I don't understand the reasoning behind removing the buff icons for Coalition traits. How are we supposed to know that they are working? Do we literally have to wait until we get into a queue with other players and look at our stats for a good 5 or so minutes trying to figure out if the buff is there and effectively doing what it is supposed to do. I mean granted the buff icons can still be there and the buffs do nothing but at least there is some indication that they are "working" or doing something anyways.

    Tribble has been updated to ST.80.20171016a.5

    General:
    • Added more color palette options to Skants.

    Does this mean that the Skants (and the Discovery) Uniform will actually transfer over to Tribble now, or are they still non-transferable? If they are still not transferable, are they available someplace for testing?

    Is anyone working on the graphics bugs that were introduced in Season 14? I'm still seeing flickering and overly dark weapons and tribbles.

    Tribble thread: Flickering tribbles on Federation fleet starbase
    Tribble thread: Flickering ground weapons
    Personal weapons flickering

    Also, since you're fixing a bunch of abilities, can someone take a look at this old bug?

    Holodeck ticket 2,853,424: Expose chance of Nanoprobe Infestation halved from 10% to 5%

    I believe it also affects the Orion Seduce ability.

    General:
    • Crystalline Entity: The various crystalline entity queues now include a UI bar displaying the current structure of the entity, as well as a bar that appears during absorption phases to show how much it has charged.

    This isn't exactly confirmation of a Crystalline event starting on the 2nd, but it does push it a little closer to probable.
    This is an MMO, not a Star Trek episode simulator. That would make for a terrible game.

    If it weren't for the massive lightshows going on in Crystalline, these extra UI items wouldn't be needed.

    Powers:
    • Resolved an issue that caused the damage of the Tzenkethi Retrofit Assault Cannon to not be scaled by the appropriate Herald Kit Frames.
    Don't forget that if a Boff uses the weapon, instead of the captain, it still slowdowns the captain as well for no reason when using the secondary fire mode. And since it's not a BOff ability, you can't tell them to interrupt it.

    Systems:
    • Raider Flanking no longer displays a status icon.
      1. The details are still visible through the Passives window.

    Someone point me to the Passives window, please?
    Is that in the status somewhere?

    (and do I have people on tribble in both BOPs and Pilot ships? That would be useful)

    Open the status window (default keybind "U").

    Look at your ground character on the Status tab. That tab has 6 selections beneath it, Progress, Stats, Passives, Skill-Based Stats: Ground, Skill-Based Stats Space, and Biography. Raider Flanking shows up in the Other section of the Passives selection.

    OK... I will go do that in a few mins. I am in the middle of swapping out characters.....copying a character in a Kor, 1 for each of the three Pilot ships.

    Only weird thing I noticed was in combat: Why is the floaters on "Flanking" YELLOW, now?
    I thought it always was RED before.
    Never mind...Flanking damage is YELLOW on Holodeck, too....the RED, apparently, is TRIBBLE happening to me. LOL!

    Frankly, I am not sure what all the different colors of the floaters mean,
    so I been researching in Wiki, Reddit and Forums...with no joy.

    Eh, never got back to this at all, yesterday. :( I am so burned out...I don't even want to go on the game at all....even to test stuff on Tribble that may effect me on Holodeck. :(

    Thanks, Drain-uur.

    And the slowdown of the Tzenkethi cannon was fixed at the same time. No longer affected by the secondary fire mode when the captain doesn't hold it. Thank you for that, devs!

    You know, looking at the Passives "Other" list...some of those are Rep Traits, now.
    And those got moved over to the "Traits" tab and has to be selected to be activated.
    So....kinda not "Passive" at all.

    Why are you pushing so hard to get it done if it's getting in the way of enjoying the game? It will still get done whether it takes 250 days or 750 days, and it isn't like the store unlocks have anything that you must have as soon as possible. Generate some provisions and use the means available in the game to get an invitation to another fleet's colony to buy things if you must have them that early. It will save you from burning yourself out on the game for no good reason, and that's what's causing it, not the existence of the Fleet Colony.

    Passive versus active. The former is slot it and forget it (except when they come unslotted at rank promotions) while the latter is something that you have to click to activate. They're very much passive once you make the minimal effort to slot them.

    It does not matter whether it was the truth or not you do not flame or troll on the STO forums. Thanks.
