Foundry Ad

Katra and Katra: Continued by Woody_Valley

As many of you have no doubt already noticed, with the release of all the goodies for the 5th anniversary, the editor is offline. All missions are presently republishing, and the reason, per Reddit:

Yep! Couldn’t Tweet the response because it was too lengthy.

ELI5 version:

Basically features like this one cause a change to the version number on related maps. Changes in version number require republishing, because a change in that number could signify a restructuring of the data, for instance.

After Season 4, we implemented functionality: the Foundry editor automatically locks itself when a mass republish is triggered. This is useful for so many reasons. I can elaborate, but won’t right now. So if there’s a mass republish, the editor will be disabled.

Hope that helps a little. :)

So now we wait, I guess we can like, play the game or something, right?

From Star Trek Online:

“The Foundry Top 3 System is a new way for players to play User Generated Content (UGC), and will be available to players in sector space. The goal of this system is to make sector space feel more alive as players will be able to explore and find new missions throughout the sector.

When at a point of interest in sector space such as a planet, up to three UGC missions will be available at the “door” to that point of interest.
You won’t see any missions for which you don’t qualify to play because of race or level restrictions.

Missions that need review will not available through the Foundry Top 3 System. The list of missions is the same for all players (assuming identical allegiance and level) and will be refreshed with a new set of missions every few hours. The ones you will see, however, are missions that have been highly rated by other players.

The list of Top 3 UGC missions will appear just below any other missions available to you at that location. Click on one of these UGC missions, and the UGC mission info window will appear. If you choose to accept the mission, it will be added to your Journal.”

Basically this only applies to missions that have space doors, and at this moment it is unknown if any of the systems that don’t presently have doors on them will, such as Earth.

*Edit 1/22/15*
Salami Inferno was kind enough to pop into a thread created over on STO’s reddit and answer some questions offered up, his comments are in bold: continue reading…

Watching the forums and Reddit, stumbled upon this little thing that seemed like a thing to share:

From Reddit/STO Forums:

http://i920.photobucket.com/albums/ad45/midnighttlc84/LOGO_zps857b9d4c.jpg
To enter the contest follow these instructions;

1: Play either ADRIFT or VARIANCE and take a screenshot while playing the mission. Showing me what your favorite part was. The possibilities are endless, and I cannot wait to see what you can show me.

2: E-mail midnighttlc84@gmail.com or attach post to this thread

3: In the e-mail or thread post put the following:

A) Your Name.
B) Your Twitter Handle (If One) or Forum Name.
C) Your Toon’s Name.
D) Attach The Screenshot.

All entries can be placed in this thread or e-mailed. Any posts not containing an entry, or not staying within these rules will be removed at the end of the contest to leave only the individual entries.

The winner will be selected by STO Admiral Aaron

**If selected as a winner, please select a Federation toon to be placed into the Star Trek Online Foundry Mission REDACTED 13. You give me permission to use the likeness and the name of your toon in the mission. I promise I won’t kill them off. You will need to e-mail me the pictures of your character settings. (Face/Body/Upper and Lower) from the tailor or foundry character creator.**

These screenshots can be your chance to showcase your skills as a designer with custom UI placement, special effects, photography style filters or anything you can produce to wow me..

Contest Closes Dec 14th, 2014 12:01PM EST

Basic Rules:
One entry per toon per player.
All entry images must be submitted in JPEG form.
All submitted images must be made of only material from Star Trek Online.
No images containing visual material from the TV/Movies, outside artwork or any licensed material from any other source will be excepted.
No custom 3D models or textures can be used in this contest. The image must contain in-game material.
Keep it classy Star Trek fans.

Instructions on How To Create A Screenshot & Insert It Here:

Images should be of high resolution quality. Recommended method:
Type “/renderscale 2″ into your chat window before taking your image
Type “/screenshot” to take image
This will create a large TGA file in the directory listed below that can be converted via Photoshop to 1920×1200.
If you wish to utilize another method like “Print Screen” you will want to turn off your HUD visuals by hitting Shift +F12
(you will find your images in C:\Program Files (x86)\Perfect World Entertainment\Star Trek Online_en\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots on most PC computers)

Good luck to everyone who enters!

NOTE:The above rules and conditions are subject to change.

It looks like the switch was thrown late tonight to allow players to review (and tip) foundry missions again. We have achieved normality, I repeat we have normality, anything else is your own problem
