OP  12/05/07 4:13:48 PM#1

The official site for Perpetual Entertainment's Star Trek Online has published a new DevLog titled "Interactions in Action". Along with the log is a new in-game screen.

Hola, STO fans, and welcome back to the DevLog! There's something darned cool lurking in this entry, so let's skip the endearingly goofy banter and get right to it...

Over the past few DevLogs we've primarily focused on a sampling of the low-level processes of STO development, taking a peek at terrain generation, object design, and version testing, among other things.

Today we'd like to seriously shift gears, and start revealing a little bit about the actual game systems themselves. We'll start with a deceptively simple game mechanic that's deucedly difficult to nail down: the Interaction System.

What's the Interaction System you ask? In a nutshell, the Interaction System controls every non-combat, player-to-NPC interaction in the game. If you want to talk to a Ferengi shopkeeper, it goes through the Interaction System. Need to get some additional phaser training at the local Starfleet Academy? That's the Interaction System. Want to beam down to a planet? Interaction System. Responding to a distress call from a crippled starship? That's the Interaction System, too. In fact, when one is done tallying up the mission givers, trainers, vendors, Transwarp Terminal operators, Dahar Masters, helpful cadets and informative colonists, you'll find that there are just about as many peaceful interactions in Star Trek Online as the phasers-and-bat'leths variety. Put plainly, the Interaction System is the glue that holds all the other systems of STO together, transforming a bunch of disconnected (though spectacularly well designed and balanced) phaser fights into an actual game, so it's vitally important that we get it "just right."

Read it all here.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

there was a topic in the STO section any chance it can get merged here. Altho its kinda rantish from yours truly. :/ sorry. I  wasn't really trying to be rantish.    I don't think anything overly out of hand might wanna proof if it does get merged.  Think there was one post by me I was sure that would get reported.  But it didn't. So i guess it was not overly out of hand.

if u look REALLY REALLY REALLY close at the surface of the ship...it almost looks like a sketch. To me it dont look like a real in game pic...theres no tags on any of the corners that would normaly say "Work in progress" or "not final build" just to prove its authentic...i think they think we are dumb or something.

You know, you're right. All around the ship, like they didn't completely clean up the layer before pasting from photoshop.

Just to let you know there is no such thing as EvE 2.

 

That ship looks photoshopped.

The semi circular edges from the pasted ship is the most visible against the planet's coloring.

 

I can't believe they'd doctor their first in game screenshot.

 

 

 

 

Well, actually I can.

Agreed. Remember the last game that had doctored screenshots from the start?

If you want to talk to a Ferengi shopkeeper, it goes through the Interaction System. 

"Please deposit 25 cents to talk to this merchant. <Deposit> <Cancel>"

Need to get some additional phaser training at the local Starfleet Academy?

"Please deposit 2 dollars for additional phaser training. <Deposit> <Cancel>"

Want to beam down to a planet?

"Please deposit 1 dollar to beam down to the planet. <Deposit> <Cancel>"

Responding to a distress call from a crippled starship?

"Please deposit 1.25 dollars to respond to this distress call. <Deposit> <Cancel>"

In fact, when one is done tallying (Tally??? Freudian slip?) up the mission givers, trainers, vendors, Transwarp Terminal operators, Dahar Masters, helpful cadets and informative colonists, you'll find that there are just about as many peaceful interactions in Star Trek Online as the phasers-and-bat'leths variety. All of which will be microtransacted for maximum enjoyment factor! After all, microtransactions enable the casual user to keep up with the hard core types! And who can afford 15 bucks a month? With microtransactions, you'll be forking that much over every day! So much easier to afford (my new Ferrari!).

and another thing im surprised no one pointed out...was the ship itself..any and EVERY ST fan would take one look at that ship and would say that it wasnt modeled properly. Its wayyyy to quished together around the middle to back...not alot of ships in the federation fleet are like that...i think a few science starships are..but that ship is kinda like the sovereign class starships with minor modifications.

True, it's...different, but not implausible. Maybe it's a sort of Nebula II class.

Has successfully forgiven SOE/LA for the NGE.

Dubious as to whether it's faked or not, but any Trek nerd will tell you (me I guess) that a warp-capable starship cannot have hull between the warp nacelles. The nacelles require empty space between them in order to properly form a warp field bubble. ;) Otherwise those poor people standing on the decks when the warp field forms will get sort of squished, vapourised, etc..

Back to the drawing board PE..

John Eaves had a hand in designing it according to his appearance on a podcast earlier this year, so maybe you'd better be telling that to the man responsible for the Enterprise E and various other ships featured in the canon!

 

As for people calling this a 'fake', don't expect much less from them here. Anything PE does gets trashed by this crowd.

Sure, put him on the line and I'll tell him :)

 

Personally I don't think the image is faked, though. It looks like an object texture to me, and if they have the texture skin, why bother copying it and pasting it over a model when they could just skin it onto the 3D object. No logic to that, and though I have no love for PE, I think naming the image fake is going a bit overboard on the PE bashing..

Edit: even the Enterprise E follows the canon technology designs. Voyager had nacelles that swept up so that they could create a warp field, and even the Defiant has angled-down nacelles. Look at any ship in Star Trek canon, they all follow that principle. As far as I can remember at least. Romulan Warbirds have a big fat empty space between nacelles, Klingons have down-swept wings, Dominion ships have nacelles that sit low on winglets.. etc, etc.. ;)
