    no more fractions. seriously. all that's left is the Borg as a main fraction and the IRW. while I would not mind the IRW, just no to the borg.
    IMHO the tutorials are fine, as are the popups that occur when something new is seen for the first time.
    More weapons slots is way too much power creep
    although the games are interesting, with the exception of Chess I don't think rules exist for the rest, and i really doubt there is sufficient ROI in building them
    you can get "married" in the game, al you have to do is role play
    At one time the Liberated Borg was a lifetime sub exclusive. I honestly don't know if it's purchasable in the C store or not. if it's not in needs to stay an exclusive

    remaking race and gender has been discussed, and I believe is technically impossible to do. unless you have a very old toon, or a toon with a lot of promo/lockbox stuff, just re-roll the toon.

    sorry to sound negative nancy, but most of your post would not make much if any money, really isn't worth the ROI to build, and for that reason is very unlikely to happen

    fair points. most of them are random ideas. so your comments are useful,
    i agree there are alittle to many faction or rather unsorted groups.
    like tos, discovery, the Dominion.
    but if they short the list down to the major 3 faction and once you click on them you can pick which timeline you want would be helpful.
    and having other faction being unlock through gameplay or the zen store would be nice.

    the wedding event is more for those who want to spend money on it but it a fair point Roleplaying it out can be fun but some couple like something more. {it a way to make profit nothing more]

    on the remake it, can be useful say that you played the game and unlock a new race you wanted but you do not want to lose your level or items due to making a new character and redo everything again thst where it come in. { its another way to make profit)

    IRW would be a fun faction

    Most of these ideas are not new, and have been shot down for one reason or another before.

    Tattoos and scars - already exist.

    Gender, race, profession, faction changes for existing characters - the developers have said these are too baked in.

    Foundry - is not coming back.

    LTS-only Missions - should never be a thing. We have no paywalled missions or places in game right now (excepting only a single social zone that basically nobody uses).... why would you want to add them?

    Liberated Borg - will never be its own faction, even if we have more factions, because the developers have said that they will not make the canon Borg geometrical ships flyable by players, as there are issues with PVP flanking, navigation, etc that come up with ships that do not have a defined "front" and "back". (even the two geometric Lukari ships are noticeably different front to back).
    At one time the Liberated Borg was a lifetime sub exclusive. I honestly don't know if it's purchasable in the C store or not. if it's not in needs to stay an exclusive

    Still LTS only.

    Liberated Borg are still a Lifer perk, alongside Talaxians.

    And there is no Foundry anymore. The system broke every time they updated the game.

    Some of these Ideas were good while others were bad ideas like westmetals stated, left hand or right seems like a cool way to make your character unique, there's never going to be a Tal Shiar faction, but they could at least gave us the complete uniform like what Hakeev and Sela wears, some more casino games could be Russian roulette and Five Finger fillet, which would be popular among KDF races, (EC or Latinium), Romulan Navy Academy should be a thing since players started a thread about adding an academy to new Romulus not as a starting area, the marriage system could work for couples that play together, lumping all federation races together is weird Vulcan marriage is different than human marriage, Vulcans have arranged marriages where they also host duels to the death like Spock's fiancee T'Pring did in the TOS episode Amok Time, just so she could hook up with someone else, as for Hybrid species, you could make one in alien gen just wish we had access to klingon hairs and for head ridges like Ba'el in order to create a proper Chalchaj'qmey (Romulan-Klingon Hybrids).

    The timeline would seem to a different temporal era and thus different storyline which will probably never gonna happen, even games with much more resources then STO don't do that because it's simply not worth the effort.

    FF14 has marriage system though it's essentially RP only as you don't get any major rewards from it (I mean rewards that would matter for gameplay), so such a system is potentially possible though with variance of customs for Trek races it might end up being too much work.

    They don't even have a properly working Dominion faction yet (just Odo's expeditionary force), so expecting more factions is just setting one's self up for disappointment.

    To be fair: it is working as designed; a lot of players just disagree with the design.

    That is true as far as it goes, they apparently were never interested in doing a Dominion faction at all and only did it so they could hop on the endgame-only player class bandwagon that was supposed to be the way all games were headed (but only was a flash in the pan), and thematically the best for that class would be the Jem'Hadar since they are essentially biotech droids programmed with all the skills they need for combat.

    That still does not alter the fact that one of the major non-cardboard-villain factions in Star Trek is still unrepresented.

    ...
    some more casino games could be Russian roulette and Five Finger fillet, which would be popular among KDF races.

    There's no chance of Cryptic adding a suicide simulator into a game available for teens. An accidentally cut off a finger game seems iffy too. Gambling, drinking booze and committing mass murder are OK though :)

    Well take it up with ESRB Cryptic needs to obey those rules after all, one of the primary reasons while certain things seem to dump the age rating more then they should or not enough is ESRB making up its own rules and those not always being very logical.

    Forgot to add facial hair for Romulans, it was always odd how Vulcans were capable of growing facial hair while their offshoots weren't able to, Vulcan and Romulans are the same species genetically, with some minor differences here and there, I'm also surprised that Vulcans don't have access to Romulan skin tones considering that Spock's skin was referred to having a greenish tint.
  • baihu#9879 baihu Member Posts: 29 Arc User
    better decription of the ideas

    I known many people have posted Ideas for Improvement to the ST:O.
    here are a few of my Ideas.
    lets Start with choosing a faction, ST:O currently has a few faction that mostly favors StarFleet
    and nelegating the others.
    so my idea is simple one is to orgazation of them under their three major factions and creating a few
    payable faction and gameplayable unlock fations.
    let start with Starfleet.
    TOS
    Discovery
    Main Storyline
    Adding two new chooses be nice.
    Enterprise Storyline, (Play during the founding of the Federation)
    Gameplay Unlock
    Maquis (You play during the last days of the Maquis and pull into the future before your death.)
    Now the KDF Klingon Defensive Force.
    it only has one faction kinda unfair to the KDF players.
    so adding their own version of:
    TOS (where you can play along with the legendary Dahar Master)
    Discovery
    Now the Romulans
    Same adding the TOS storyline and a Unlockable RWS storyline.

    now
    The Dominion just add more to it and to make it fair start them off lower lvl like 20 or something it kinda leave them
    with growth starting off at 60.
    For lifetime membership or monthly subcribers
    Borg Cooperative (You played as a member of new awaken Drone.)
    Delta Quadrant StarFleet (through the efforts of Neexie and other Allies they Form brance of Starfleet)
    Delta Quadrant KDF VOY s7e14 (after wandering for countless years you aid these Klingon in building their new homeworld.

    gameplay unlockable factions
    Terran Empire
    TOS
    Discovery
    Rebellion
    Infilltration of Starfleet

    Now for Character Creations
    mostly new content or a overhaul in the creations itself.
    allow the player to choose characteristic traits and personality
    like are you left or right handed?
    Background traits
    are you a Tasha Yar who grew up in a hellish enviorment.
    are you like Wolf a orphan who grew up in a alien culture.
    and so on.

    add more chooices for Hairstyles or able to custom the stlye already given.
    Facial Ecpression would be nice since we are not all data.
    add secondary facial markings it just allows you to have a tattoo and scars at the same time.
    Improvements to Species
    Caitian and Ferasan, giving them the no shoes and fixing how their legs looks like the Gorn and as shown on TAS adding the looks similar Like on in Star Trek Into Darkness a more humanized form
    lifetime membership bouns
    Liberated Borg
    Like all of player there many who played different races outside the main having the liberated borg being from different races will bring more attention to it.

    optional storyline for all non advanced factions
    Academy Days
    where you can relived your academy studies, this can help teach new player better giving lession is better gamecontrol.
    and few speciality missions.

    Improvement of Ships Both Players and NPC ships
    More weapons slots for the four side of the ships. It kinda make it more realistic.
    customable crew uniform
    customizable Captain Readyroom and Crew Quaters
    in ship Pet or you can choose a pet to live on your ship.
    payable option to add more bridge crew spots

    Mini games and Casino games
    delta quadrant race way {bet or racing}
    Poker
    Kadis-kot
    Dom-jot
    Tongo
    Fizzbin
    Chess
    Kal-toh

    more prizes
    like Lobi Stones, Keys or EC or where you can convert to get them.


    Inheritances Legacy and marriages
    Marriages allow to hold special event where you can get married in either a federation, Bajorian and Klingon style.
    Inheritance will allow a maxed lvl character to be able to created a new hybrid character which inheirace some features from a worn-out character.
    Increased maxed level.
    Character Transformation this allows you to remake your race and gender.Hybrid Characters: allows you to created half breeds and sharing special traits of the delected race.

    Vulcans and Romulans are the exact same race, the V ridges are more common with Romulans than with Vulcans but both have both types for instance. As for beards, Spock only had one in Mirror, Mirror because he is half human and in the empire it pays to stress that point.

    Roddenberry used to say at conventions when asked that Vulcans (and Romulans) cannot grow them, but Paramount movie division pretty much ignored him after the first movie which is why Sybok had one. Notice however that in TOS and TNG where Roddenberry had at least some real say in things no pure Vulcan has ever had one.

    Take anything Roddenberry said with a truckload of salt. That aside, I seem to recall Mirror!Soval also had a beard.

    your ideas are not bad, but there are still a lot of bugs currently in sto which need to be fixed; and after each patch new bugs are "added" (like the pet dot-23 drone which is bugged). the devs can what they can, and they have to keep their attention on the existing bugs (warp animation to qonos is still bugged even after yok)

    While some things I agree with, some of them just aren't possible...even triple A mmos don't have some of the customization you're requesting

    I'd like more options for Liberated Borg, but I think that ship sailed the moment they put the Borg equipment that looks better than what the LB player characters have on the lobi store.

    as well as Mirror Sarek, weird how it's always goatees with (mirror) Vulcans and not full beards.

    Roddenberry wasn't around to put the kibosh on "Vulcan beards" after TNG (and the movie division never actually listened to him much anyway after TMP unless he was ranting about something to the fans which might cause problems at the box office) and people making the later series (and even TOS-Remastered) often didn't do their research to find out why things were done the way they were and what the intentions were.

    In this case they didn't bother to find out why Spock had a goatee, they just went "oh, neat, lets use it on all the male mirror Vulcans!", and for Sybok they thought that the actor looked more the part of a charismatic "hippy" profit with a beard and didn't care whether Vulcans could grow them or anything else a penny-ante TV producer said about them even if he did create the fictional world the movie was set in (at the time movie people still looked down their noses on "mere" TV people).

    Star Trek has been going for so long it has gotten to be like a game of telephone, errors keep compounding as time goes on because in matters that reach all the way back to TOS (and to some extent even TNG) very few bother to check the original material. Or even when they do they often do it in a very shallow way.

    A good example of that shallow research approach is the remastered version of the Fesarius from The Corbomite Maneuver. When the episode was remastered, they apparently never read the original script which clearly described the ship as a cluster of shifting spheres (Balok's pilot ship assembled itself from some of the spheres drawn from the cluster but of course 1960s SFX was not up to the task of showing it so they just had it come around the big cluster already assembled).

    Instead they must have heard the story of how the prop was built using a hemispherical light shield with holes punched in it and sliced in half ping pong balls glued to the surface with several colored lights illuminating it from the back and rheostats to pulse the intensity of the lights and jumped to the conclusion that the black hemisphere was the surface of the hull instead of just something to hang the ping pong balls on to make it look "like an invisible fishbowl full of glowing marbles" as one of the descriptions in the script says, and keep the camera from seeing the light stand and wires set up behind it.

    If they could temporarily merge the servers (which the devs have stated before that they cannot due to small yet important differences between them) there is still the roadblock of the arrangements with the console companies who are dead set on preventing any possibility at all of things getting around their stores.

    that true, but there might be a way if they make a base app for collecting DOFF and Rep and some exchanges.
    they also could add the mobile casion feature.

    There was already such an app in the past (though maybe with not the specific functions you mentioned); it has been deactivated.

    it be nice if they make a Zen Item where all playable races chould join a each factions.
    so you can have a Human KDF or a Orion Starfleet officer.
    I know they have the Alien race, but it limited in so many ways.

    Seriously though if they are doing locations—I would prefer places like Ferenginar or Cardassia Prime. I can go to Okinawa anytime.
