Random Improvements: What's Your Idea?

Would love to hear feedback on these unrelated ideas for game improvement, along with your own ideas!

Some random ideas for game improvement:

1) Remove trainers from Gauntlet and replace with honor (small bits, 25 or 50 is fine).

2) Add multi-tiered Gauntlet. Do a Gauntlet for 4-5 star crew and one of 3-4 star crew. Makes it better for rookies and vets.

3) Do an event like a campaign, i.e. it's not just shuttles, or building, or skirmish, or expedition. Why not a combo of ALL those things where you garner points (like campaign or dailies)? This might make it harder for whales to beat the pants off everyone.

4) MORE EPISODES.

  • I think we need more episodes on the map. It's been way too long since we had one.

    Even though I still haven't completed them all, it's nice to be able to go back and do these as I level crew up.

    A completely fresh gamemode. I say completely fresh because while I like many enjoy the Skirmishes it builds on something that already existed - the ship battles.

    In line with that previews of things that are planned.

    Sunshine Riker, those dilemmas have saved my keester on multiple occasions when I would have run out of anti-matter!

    YES!!! That is a GREAT point!

    And that's why it should be a toggle-able option!

    That way people who can run 8/10 hour voyages can just let them run and anyone who wants to leave the dilemmas in as manual can.
  • If we automate the game then it would take away any fun/intrest of playing.
  • Granted this would be akin to the replicator ration rooms. But maybe a room to donate to and get dill? Or say... 5k honor?
  • Galaxy map revamp!

    :neutral: you know why....
    Dear DB: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    Yes this a million times. Hitting the arrow a million times to get the ship you need is annoying. Especially problematic as new ships keep getting added with skirmishes. A 13th voyage slot wild card is interesting but would DB then make voyages harder? Maybe instead of a 13th slot one of the 12 slots is made wild card and it changes each voyage so sometimes it is where one of the command slots is and sometimes eng or another skill.

    An inventory exporter to csv would be my current top choice

    The Cryo Vault!

    Sure, last time they renovated it, we gained the ability to sort and search. But it STILL separates the frozen crew from the active crew. The whole point of sorting them in there is to see ALL of my crew, frozen and active, sorted by skill scores. Why else would I be in there!?!?!

    Please, DB, arrange them all together. End the segregation!

    I've suggested events based on Voyages and Gauntlet before. I still believe in those ideas.

    Maybe new episode(s) could be based around the upcoming Picard series. That will give DB some time to line things up.

    A new game mode would be nice, but I'm having a tough time envisioning it. We have shuttles that use base scores, gauntlet that uses proficiencies, Voyages that use a combination of both, Arena that uses its own set of numbers, and events that use each of those things while accounting for crew traits. I'm all for a new game mode, but it would take some new stats or elements or some innovation to use what is existing.

    There was also a thread for Voyage "captain bonuses". I liked that idea. Partly because it could be an excuse to have more star base rooms.

    Now that I think about it, could the passive Arena stats be used in some way? Space station defense? Like defending DS9 from being taken? Ship stats to repel ships and maybe one crew for each stat to repel boarding parties. Seems like an every-six-month type of event like Expedition.

    Change the shuttle boosts to 2x rewards for 2x time instead of 3x time.

    I call this the "Let people sleep at night during faction events" improvement, but LPSANDFE sounds like a star wars alien name, just without the apostrophes.

    I have too many ideas to share here, I've actually been compiling a list for a future thread post :) But this is a great thread, thank you for posting it :)

    If I could make one change, this would be it. Consider it the Bartender position or something, but leave a spot for somebody to just sort of be there and contribute without being part of the actual crew.

    It would really help to round out the skills you’re a little short on, which happens every voyage
  • ByloBandByloBand ✭✭✭✭✭
    OK, I'll toss in a freebie:

    I think it would be very cool if somewhere on the galaxy map our fleet starbases actually appeared visually, and it would be equally cool if we could see our fleetmates' ships parked on the various map locations!

    Oh, and connected to the Inventory Limit thread, show description easily on single items in inventory in the Replicator fuel screen, so we can properly clear our inventory below 1000 items!!!

    Something completely new, like voyages were when they came. For instance an event type where you have to deploy crew on the defensive who then come under attack in different skills. But not in a dice-fest-like way as in the Gauntlet.
  • YeldoowYeldoow ✭✭
    The ability to sort your ships when starting a voyage so you can easily find the best ship to use would be really helpful.

    It would also be nice to have something when picking your crew to give you an idea of how long your voyage would last. Just an estimated voyage length to make it easy to see how different crew and different skill combinations will effect how long the voyages last.
