How to disable automatically rotated log files

A standard setting of the STO server is to automatically rotated log files every hour. Which means that you have to select the rotated combatlog manually. You find your Combatlog in the “Cryptic Studios\Star Trek Online\Live\logs\GameClient” folder. A rotated combatlog is looking like this combatlog_date_time.log (e.g. “Combatlog_2016-02-25_18-00-00.Log”) and you have to select the latest one.

But there is a way to disable the log rotation in your client settings.

  1. Open your STO launcher options.

    Log1

  2. Write “-NoAutoRotateLogs” (without quotation marks) into the command line and save your changes.

    Log2
    After this setting is changed your logfiles are not rotating anymore. Your combatlog will now be called Combatlog.log .

PvE-DPS-Basics

This guide should just describe the basics in Star Trek Online’s Space-PvE.
It’s written for beginners and everyone else, who wants to learn more about the game.

Skilltree:

Skilltree Suggestion

As you can see all three careers have the same skilltree.

Not all points are spend into those skilltrees, so you have room for your own creativity. If you want to take a torpedo with you, spend some points in projectile weapons. You are using some abilities, which do exotic damage? Then you should put some points into particle generators.

If you want to know, what every skill does, you can take a look into this spreadsheet.

Furthermore there is a Diminishing return in the resistances. That video podcasts explains it.

Personal Traits:

You can choose out of some traits...

Walkthrough: ISA (left→right)

Infected: The Conduit (Advanced)

ISA is one of  the easiest and fastest of all Borg-STFs.

But that mission is used for DPS-comparison, so it’s recommended to know the tactics.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This Guide was written for a ship with B:FAW and single beams!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The goal of the mission is to stop the borg activity in the system.

There is a Gateway in the middle with two Nanite transformers, one to the left and one to the right. Above each transformer is a cube with a sphere.

At each Nanite transformer there are four Nanite generators...

– You collected experience with your bridge officer skills and know the effect of each of the bo-skills you use
– You don’t use to die too often
– Have your weapons set to autofire
– You are comfortable with using your abilities and want to use them timed on demand rather than spamming

6) KEYBINDS/MACROS II

Guide (part I) How to build a DPS beam boat:

(Copyright @maverick8711 and DPS-League Channels)

This first part of the guide is a manual for absolute DPS-newbies, a few parts of the keybinds are not optimal for real high-dpsing however they will ease up adapting to all the changes regarding your built massively!

In the second part you will be told how to improve and optimize the keybind your own, such as be shown another weapon configuration.

1) WEAPONS:

For a universal pve high dps beam boat we only use single beam weapons of !!!THE SAME!!! damage type! (Antiproton, Polaron or whatever…)

The only exception of that is the Kinetic Cutting Beam in combination with the Assimilated Module (Omega reputation).

More important than using an expensive high end weapon type like Antiproton, Elach...
