    Yes, this! When I saw the Disco-era logo on the create tab, I was horribly disappointed to see we couldn't yet make a Disco character. You guys really know how to tease.

    That is making the assumption that they intend to release those episodes for pre-release testing.

    They don't always do that. They usually only release episodes fro pre-launch testing when they are part of an Expansion.

    Age of Discovery is not an Expansion. It's Season 15. Seasons don't usually get pre-launch testing on their featured episodes.

    Please fix Account Bank functionality if this patch didn't address this problem. Please.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the tutorial up before launch to make sure VO, environmental art, etc., are in their proper places. But like you, I doubt the actual episodes will go up.

    Unrelated to Primar's post (which is why I'm double-posting, so mods, feel free to merge this into my other post), if this Tribble build was meant to allow skipping all missions, I still can't. One character got hung up on Yesterday's War, and the character in question had completed Temporal Ambassador.

    Discovery will come with it's own tutorial, it's an expansion that comes as part of a new Season, just like all the other expansions.

    I think one reason that they haven't released Discovery on Tribble yet is they're worried about the backlash. Let's face it, Discovery ISN'T the most popular series of Trek ever made, Even Enterprise was better received than Discovery. I believe that the devs will release the tutorial and the first few episodes of the new expansion, they need us to QA the missions after all. But they will delay them as long as possible to minimize the backlash from the people who, like me, hate Discovery.

    This is should read Removed the ability to queue multiple reputation projects in one slot

    The issues that causes are that any existing projects queued are unavailable to remove or queue elsewhere. And you have halved the number of event slots available... There are going to be screams of players complaining you have deleted historical projects just because they cannot see them anymore

    I have watched both Discovery and Orville *noting orville isnt star trek* and i prefer the Orville over Discovery.
    Orville is written with the exploration aspect in mind at least to me which makes it far more entertaining than WAR in Discovery. If Discovery changes its direction great, but if they continue with the constant new war bit and its always war instead of exploration, my opinion of Discovery will fall lower than it did last season and um if it falls any more i will likely quit watching Discovery and opt to watch Orville.

    Discovery I have enjoyed, I welcome the new star trek. Every star trek has had it's own base theme discovery does too and its enjoyable if that is what you like or don't mind. As far as tribble goes would love to test the up coming season however they usually don't put them up to test so either way still excited.
  • dalmaru23dalmaru23 Member Posts: 16 Arc User
    i personally like Discovery but i can understand where other people are coming from who hate Discovery I am hoping that with Age of Discovery it will be received with the same excitement that that fans of this game have always shown despite the show facing considerable hate from people who don't think Discover is trek i look at it this way it takes a look at the grittier side of starfleet

    Testing today: Character Select Screen issue: zooms into feet if characters sign out in a space map. This behavior has been corrected. If anyone cares over there.

    Tested by signing into my character, moved them to Sector or System space, signing out...scrolling one by one through all characters in the Select screen to check the zoom on them.

    Moving to the next character, moved them to space map, signing out....checking all character's zoom again....etc..... Until all 7 characters were sitting in space maps when signed out. (previously, when all 7 were in space all 7 were zoomed incorrectly).

    Never saw the issue crop up, every character are at the proper zoom whether on space or ground.

    Though I have to note: the more characters one scrolls through in that character select screen, the longer the program takes to "snap" to the correct zoom. Not sure why. This can be corrected by signing into a character and back out.

    When not testing...I know to not click through so many characters before settling on one to sign in on. And I usually do not. LOL!

    Hmmm.... beaming my Romulan back to a ground map (Qo'nos, First City and Shipyard, to be exact) I am not seeing the transporter beam animation on her.

    I will check that a few more times and test on other locations. Though, you may have already heard from plenty of Romulans from other sources, already.

    OK...I verified this is a problem with Romulans and the maps at Qo'nos. First City, First City: Shipyard, and Klingon Academy maps.... no animation on beam in or beam out.

    Only time I saw the animation on my Romulan is when I use the "Beam to Ship" button on the mini map from First City or First City: Shipyard. Of course, that button is disabled on Klingon Academy map.

    Forgot to mention, tested on Ganalda Station, and on New Romulus Command, New Romulus proper.

    And I am out of time, have to get dinner started.

    Is the Account Bank supposed to work on Tribble? I thought that was cut off on Tribble.

    My characters that completed Gamma Reputation on Tribble....starting from 0 points to Tier 6 (250,000).... there are three of them.

    Skill tree is still stuck in INVALID condition "Retrain" button active..... but NOT able to respec.
    Still get a fly in notification that "Respec completed". But the invalid skills and "Retrain" button persist.

    I have deleted 2 of those characters and copied them back over a-new. Over the weekend I will take them through Gamma Reputation, again. Check to see if this glitch has been cleared up. I kept the third since she has unlocked and purchased 6 of the Rep Vanity shields.

    Meantime, I am going to go play on Holodeck....if you don't mind. :)

    Finally, I get to get on!

    I will agree with the dislike of the revamped rep window. I didn't see anything wrong with it before. I also can tell you I'll be mad if this deletes any previously slotted "historical" event projects, like the Dyson ship, or other older event projects. I am slowly working toward being able to get those taken care of, but it's very time consuming, and you have to wait for the events for the specific things to be able to farm those.

    I am one of those who will slot the daily multiple times, so that I can just start it right away without having to go into the list and select the project. I enjoy having a fresh one on the back burner, ready to go when the first one finishes.

    Mission journal... I'm admittedly on the fence about that one. I didn't see anything really wrong with the progression before, though would like to be able to skip at will if at a high enough level.

    One more thing I was seeing on previous Tribble that continue in this build: Competitive Reputation Vanity Shield visual behavior with Cloaking. This shield visual goes through a 2-step cloaking/de-cloaking process.

    On cloaking: 1.) Shield visual disappears. Pause. 2.) Ship disappears.

    On de-cloak: 1.) Ship appears. Pause. 2.) Shield visuals appears.

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    Also, seems to be some issues with the tailor on the KDF side. And it may NOT just be on Tribble since I saw similar behavior with the tailor on Holodeck.

    I am finally able to figure out while working with tailor on Tribble...if I want to see my customization in the tailor, I need to enter the tailor, twice.

    The first time I sign into the tailor, it will show the default view of that ship. The second time I sign into the tailor, it will show the customized ship and can edit it from that point.

    I have not isolated it down to : individual ships that the tailor responds to this way....or if it is every ship.

    To reproduce issue: Switch active ship. Go to Ship Tailor.

    Make some glaringly obvious paint job or give it a good editing with parts and pieces...just so you can tell it is changed. Click on "Apply Changes"...."Do you want to save this ship?" dialog...whatever it says...say YES you want to save that.

    It will immediately take you out of the Tailor.

    Look in Ship Status....you should see the ship in it's full glorious clashing colors.

    Go back to Tailor. You will see the blank (boring) default view of that ship. Hit "Cancel".
    Go back to Tailor. You will see the ship you customized.

    Like I said....I have NO clue which ships do this in the tailor because I have only looked at my Kor, T-5 Vor'Cha, and my Pilot Raptors (which do not work in the tailor at all on Tribble).

    Perhaps it's because Cryptic have realised that people are using Tribble to 'play the game', rather than Holodeck. Remember that Tribble is just a test server, so functionality WILL be limited in some cases. People shouldn't be 'exploiting' the system to rack up 'premium' Lobi.

    i understand that but there are certain thing that can be used to test from the lobi store so my friend can get the stuff and give them to people who want to test stuff out like ships
