Error 2: File not found?
So, the game client is patching, and it gets partially through and gives me an "Error 2: File not found. Restarting in" followed by a countdown, and this keeps happening. Anyone know how to fix this? I tried integrity and everything and still having the i...
A basic guide to the many currency systems used in Star Trek Online. Many new players are confused by the variety of currencies they are required to get for various items. This guide intends to help people get a better understanding of what each currency
Do What You Love and the Dilithium Will Follow: A Very Basic Guide for Newbie Players
If you're spending hours and hours mindlessly doing boring stuff in STO that you hate just to squeeze out a measly 2-3K dilithium a day, you're doing it wrong. Read this guide to learn how to get dilithium the fun and effortless way.
Beware! Purchasing Zen via Steam will cause that currency to be locked for a week or more, usable only on items that are untradable (account bound). That means you can't use the dilithium exchange. This lock will last until "your purchase has been confirmed in order to prevent fraud."
I am currenty at the seven day mark. I tried to purchase more zen from the official website immediately following and that was locked also even though it has a confirmation number. Filing a GM ticket will not correct this, as PWE really wants you to not use Steam for purchases.
This game is what you expect from a star trek MMO although more combat based.Theres tons of things to do starting off and is generally a good game with Content being added through Seasons.This is one of those games that You have the option to pay to win in,but really thats a personal choice a normal F2P player can get around just fine.Theres 3 factions that you can play as: Federation Klingon and Aligned romulan.Each with their own unique story some of which have voice actors from the orignial Shows.
Federation is The faction thats The most Story Oriented ,Their ships Nearly all look the same and they have formidible cruisers and nifty Pay ships being the Main faction they have the most ships.
Klingon is The PVP oriented Faction that Is generally about combat (if you know about the lore then you already know this)Their ships Are built for Manuverability and General head on combat with the ability to cloak outside of it.Their endgame Ships are Built for Survivability.
Romulan is the Jack of all trades Faction that has a Good story and Can Side with either of the two factions above.Their ships are Weak starting off but get alot of abilities to compensate,but in the right hands they can be formiddible,Especially if you know what your doing if you decide to pay. Their endgame ships have Countless abilities that can overwelm some people but in the right hands they can be amazing, Being The Head admiral with a Romulan Scimitar Dreadnaught Thats nearly unkillable i can say that it worked out well for me.
The only negative Aspect of this game is how repetitive it gets especially at end game where all you do is try to grind marks for the advanced reputation end gear.
As for clans theres alot of things you can do clan wise which are known as fleets in this game Fleets are unique in that they have their own Starbase that Players can Contribute to in order for the base to grow.Having multiple Fleet Projects that can upgrade the base in generall and give access to New Gear /Assigments and Income being dilithium Ore,their endgame gear is Extremely powerful and can overshadow some Mark gear if built Correctly.
In one of the recent updates a Crafting system was added to the game which allows you to make almost anything you need if you have the materials for it.This is generally usefull if you want to make Ingame currency and generally make your self better.
Theres 3 Main currency types are EC/Dilithium/Zen Secondary are Fleet Credits
EC is the standard ingame currency thats used for most of the Ingame commerce and Exchange
Dilithium is the Currency thats rewarded for daily activities.It can also be mined through Daily events as well.This is the Currency that can be traded for Premium Currency which is Zen and can be used to obtain the high end fleet gear combined with Fleet Credits.
Zen is the Premium paystore currency that will buy you most of the Ship/items you see in the store it can also be exchanged for massive amounts of Dilithium.
Fleet Credits are what you get for Contributing to Fleet Projects and is what you want if you want the High end fleet Gear and Equipment.
The paystore is huge and you will need to pay to get rid of the ingame money limit but thats in every MMO nowadays especially F2P.Most of the best ships ingame can be bought through microtransactions and i know this may seem ugly to some but they need to make money somehow in order to keep making Revenue and running their game, it being attached to the most sucessful show in history this is not suprising on how expensive most things are.The Extremely Unique ships I guess you could say "Supporter" ships can be Expensive Some totaling in around 160$ USD to get and this is from combined Lobi crystals from opened lockboxes.Some of these ships have amazing abilities though but ill leave that to you to decide.The normal Endgame ships id say go for about 20$ usd however the higher endgame ships can go for about 30$ each,most of them being the Tier 6 Ships.Some of these can be worth it with Some of the abilities they have but ill leave that to you to decide.
Tons of stuff to do
Both space and ground combat
Some Voice acting
Tons of story missions
Star trek lore Everywhere
Great character customization
Decent enough leveling
Good and helpful community in General
Some endgame Reputations Are easy to grind
Can run on almost any PC with as low as 2-4 GB of ram
Very large paystore
Some bugs here and there
Changing UI:Every few updates somthing new gets added that makes the UI alot more Complicated for some people.
Endgame Reputation Grind is painful for some reputations
Spammers: Shady Third Party Spammers,Every so often you will see someone in chat advertising about some website and in some cases even Adding/Spamming/Removing you from their Friends list in order to promote these websites that sell cheap ingame goods at prices that are Heavly Reduced such as Lockbox keys and Founder/Lobi ships.All of these websites are Run by identity theves that just want your Personal info And/Or Account so just ignore them So just take the high route and just ignore them and report them if you do encounter them. ( not like it will do much anyway but still do it ).
Overall id say this is a Game worth playing even if you arent a Star trek fan its worth giving it a try.and in some cases paying.
So I got around to finally stop having fun to earn up for a new set of elite carrier pets on my Fed. The catch is, I don't quite know what to get. I have access to a Atrox and breen sar theln. I play each for fun.
I will also add Im one of the better...
Hey guys, first time back in about 18 months and I am having trouble with quick leveling, seems patrol missions are gone too? I did a foundry mission at level 9 and it gave me no substantial XP. Any tips for efficient leveling?
