A mini-Gauntlet for your ideas

With the "Out of the Box" thread appropriately moved to the Make It So forum, here's a slightly different approach to weighing in on game improvement ideas:

Vote for Your Timelines Ideas

I've scraped the Out of the Box ideas and most recent couple of pages of Make It So forum for seed ideas for you to vote on. Vote as often as you like until you get bored; with enough options and enough participants it won't matter much if any one person has "over-voted".

You can also add your own ideas live during the voting; I'd recommend voting a bunch of times first to see if your idea already exists.

Once you're done voting, you can click "View Results" to see the cumulative community prioritization thus far.

I can also post the results here every day or two until the voting tapers off ...
Accepted. Mark them, Galt.

    I’ll copy and paste tonight (though you can watch in the tool itself). As of now there seems to be near-unanimity that voyages need a tune up...

    OK, here are results after the first day of voting ... votes are still coming in (and new votes are changing the summary results), so if you haven't participated please do ... I'll keep the tool open.

    To interpret the results:
    The score of an idea is the estimated chance that it will win against a randomly chosen idea. For example, a score of 100 means the idea is predicted to win every time and a score of 0 means the idea is predicted to lose every time.

    There have been 2278 pairwise votes on 48 ideas, over 55 unique user sessions. I can't confirm that all 55 were different people, but "about 50" is the approximate sample size:



    "Discuss and debate..." ... and if you haven't voted, or have an idea not on the list, please visit: https://www.allourideas.org/STTideas

  • This is a great idea. Thanks.
    I would suggest potential voters to vote first for things that are minor changes or additions as they would be more likely to get done.
    Instead of extreme formulation, programming and technical changes that likely wont happen. Eventually maybe these more complicated ideas can happen.
    Not saying dont vote for them at all, but once u start the survey u will see the same option comes up multiple times, in a random mix.
    Just my thought. Please vote as u see fit.
    Thanks again for the idea and interaction you have made possible 5000 Quatloos

    Lotsa good ideas there. Which is why DB will never implement any of them.

    Man, I voted LOADS of times and never saw half of those options!

    IIRC it was a way to put the load of 2/3/4 ships into storage so they don't clutter your daily hunt for Voyage ships. (I think)

  • Because we already have the base programming and it would be most easy to implement changes on an existing scale,

    I am especially fond of some gauntlet tweaks, winner based on actual % and proficiency value, maybe 3 levels like arena so that all lvl players can play.

    some starbase upgrades for secondary command position to manage the fleet in an admirals unexpected absence. And more control over squad leader possitions so the entire squad does not have to disband when a S/L goes missing.
    I am sure DB never considered the loss of an adm or S/L when setting up fleets or it would have already been included. Many fleets have have to go dormant and start over due to sudden adm loss. And having to re-sort all members to a new squad if a S/L goes missing is complicated especially with the limited msg system we have.

    And of course Cheescake seven.
