    You are prototyping scaling ships? Please let this become a function to all ships. Please. PLEASE!

    Also damn. I'm just short of the 750 to buy that pack. Consider it sold though.

    Will this be available pre-AOD release or on?

    Will the 12 slot inventory pack work if you are maxed OUT? We do need more space for pets and please clarify if this might work even if you are maxed out? Can the slots be increased in any future times. Some of us have been here since beta and would benefit for additions if no pet tabs are created soon.

    Thanks!​​

    Oh, is there any chance that you can purchase a token to have the scalable Walker Class be upgraded to scale to T6? I will totally pay the 3000z to make that happen. That way my Discovery character can drive the Walker class all the time. Well, except to farm for traits. But all the other times, she'd be in that Walker class.
  • exercitusprimeexercitusprime Member Posts: 9 Arc User
    The FAQ says the scalable Walker will have the same interior as the T6 version... except the T6 Walker doesn’t come with an interior. Is the T6 version going to get an interior with Age of Discovery? If so, will those of us who already have the T6 Walker automatically get that?
  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 54,801 Community Moderator
    Yes. I believe they will retroactively add the Walker interior to all existing Walker class ships. Same with all Crossfields getting the Discovery interior.

    Was reading the blog and thought I already have a scaling ship and plenty of scaling weapons so nothing for me here and then I saw it.. Baby Tardigrade pet! SOLD. Dont tell me theres more after it says Tardigrade pet..

    Still waiting to be able to use forum titles
  • captainwellscaptainwells Member Posts: 718 Arc User
    I like a lot about this pack!
  • badgerpants999badgerpants999 Member Posts: 241 Arc User
    OK, not what I was expecting but not unwelcome.

    A few obvious questions
    Q. Will there be variants of the scaling ships available for Klingon and Romulan captains?

    Q. Will you be developing scaling ships in Escort and/or Science varieties?

    Q You mentioned the weapons will be available for all characters on an account but. Will my other federation characters get access to this ship as well?

    Q Is the Tartigrade Vanity Pet only for one character or is it claimable by all characters on an account?
  • fewzzfewzz Member Posts: 227 Arc User

    Yes, for the low low price of 900 lobi.

    If STO had pvp twinks like other games, those pvpers would have wet their pants over a fully outfitted T1 ship. :D
  • entnx01entnx01 Member Posts: 538 Arc User
    My only real "complaint" is the ship isn't an account unlock. I'd love to be able to make some alts and not have to constantly go to Spacedock, grab a ship, re-configure BOFF seating for the new ship, add weapons & consoles, etc. I know I've still got a few pains (such as upgrading all my gear to the new rank's MK level), but having a scalable ship for longer-term players would be nice. Maybe require a character to get through the Fed leveling process to unlock the ability to use scaling ships on Fed toons, the KDF leveling process for scaling KDF ships, etc., going forward?
  • pwecangetlostpwecangetlost Member Posts: 538 Arc User
    I love the idea of the scaling starship. I always wished my more unique starter ships (like the NX) were more viable for longer. I think the starting price is really reasonable for what you get as well.
    I'm really impressed with this and I will be picking this pack up in a heartbeat, thanks guys.

    We've updated a paragraph in the blog to make the rewards more clear. XP Boost and Inventory slots are bound to the first character who claims them. Tardigrade and Weapons are reclaimable. The ship is an account unlock.
  • f8explorer#7814 f8explorer Member Posts: 1,324 Arc User
    Can we get confirmation that the ship is one time claim and not account unlock? It's how it sounds.

    Awesome, Thank you kindly sir!

    With this release... not likely. Its a Fed starter. However the guns will be available for the whole account.
    Q. Will you be developing scaling ships in Escort and/or Science varieties?
    With them experimenting with scaling ships? Possible. We've seen them roll out new mechanics on one ship in the past before. Prime Examples being Secondary Deflectors, Raider Flanking, and Cruiser Commands. The Arbiter Battlecruiser was the first to use Cruiser Commands before they added it to all cruiser type ships.
    Q You mentioned the weapons will be available for all characters on an account but. Will my other federation characters get access to this ship as well?
    I admit that is a bit unclear... but hopefully it will be like the Enterprise Bundle and allow for a reclaim on other characters, or just make it an outright C-Store Unlock.

    Which reminds me... why doesn't the Enterprise Bundle unlock the NX Class in the normal C-Store? You have to reclaim the bundle to get her, and the normal C-Store still asks for Zen.
    Q Is the Tartigrade Vanity Pet only for one character or is it claimable by all characters on an account?
    Hopefully will be like the weapons and be claimable. Guess we'll find out.

    I've never seen that ship in the show (since I stopped watching it), but it does look very nice, resembles the Miranda, so I like that.
    Thanks for clarifying. Since the pet and ship are account unlock, I may pick this up. The scaling ship mechanic will be nice to test.

    EDIT: Speaking of... I don't suppose we can reskin this to the miranda by any chance?

    Oh I know about the lobi ship, but I would be over the moon if we could pay to scale to T6.
