Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

I would think it would be much harder to write for Klingons, due to the fact that the emphasis there is on the PvP aspects of play, while the Federation tends to have the emphasis on story missions.

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

I have a KDF character and like him; but honestly I never was able to get into the "TOS Movie-Era or TNG Era" Klingon mindset; so given all the 'hardcore' KDF players that are really into the 'modern' Trek franchise depiction of Klingons, while I do feel I could come up with a good plot and story; I don't know if I could write Klingon dialogue or maintain a Klingon character in the 'modern era' well enough to make enjoyable for the folks REALLY into Kliongons in STO - so that's what's stopped me from doing a Foundry mission for the KDDF side.

I have no issues relating to the Federation side or maintaing a Federation officer character to come across 'in character' front to back, so that why I stick with creating Federation stuff myself.

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

I seem to be having a problem. I'm at the turbolift on Starbase 39, and after I click on "Use turbolift", nothing happens.

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

Me too. Turbolift doesn't do anything. You should pull the mission and fix it before bad reviews kill it.
love the title. For that alone you will probably get a lot of hits!

The Spirits of Ramok Nor

I highly recommend this story.It's a must-play for all DS9 and Trek fans. This guy plays the foundry tools like no other I've seen.
When I play missions like these, which have to be rated 5 stars, I will be totally content with getting a 3 star average on my own when I eventually publish it.

Just played through it, and I second the motion. Lots of fun!

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

Why my mission had problems and is now temporarily withdrawn:

The patch Friday introduced a bug. Publishing a mission silently corrupts it (we think your copy is fine, but the published version is hosed). This causes a number of problems, the worst of which is map transitions won't trigger. That's why you guys were in the turbolift and nothing happens; without the corruption you'd have gotten a popup dialog from the Admiral's Flag Lieutenant telling you he was expecting you and to come right up, and then you've had transitioned to his office.

As soon as Cryptic fixes the bug, I'll republish it. The corruption appears to happen every time you publish, without fail, so doing it repeatedly doesn't fix anything.

Foundry's still in beta, so either Cryptic wasn't aware of this problem when they left Friday, or decided beta didn't mean "we fix it this weekend". I suspect it's the former, since there's been no dev post about the issue and they're usually really good about that.

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

Another one for my personal Top 10:
The Infinitesimal Frontier
That title is a mouthful but well worth it. I won't spoil too much and you'd never think a concept like this could be pulled off with the foundry. It's Star Trek's version of a certain film with Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan.

Re: TrekBBS Armada - The Foundry

The Jem'Hadar Alliance missions are really good as well (I did 1, 2, 5, 6...I think).

(I definitely agree that TIF is top 10 material).

My personal favorite is Parallel Intersections

Anyone find any "MUST AVOIDS" so far?

Ah, okay!

That would explain why I had problems with the Cestus IV mission dealing with the Romulans and Borg.
