of the Author’s Outpost. You will find us on Twitch at 7:00pm Eastern and 4:00pm Pacific

We’ll be reviewing a Fed mission called Time’s Razor: Part 1 by captainazzarano, and discussing Star Trek: Enterprise episodes Borderland, Cold Station 12, and The Augments. We’ll even demonstrate any technique a new author would like to see, live at the end of our show. It’s going to be wicked fun. See you then.

Hello everyone;

For those people that are not aware I’ve within the past few months published an eBook. The eBook is called Karver: Failed Expectations and is available here as well as all go online eBook retailers. Since it’s been out for so long I thought it was time for for me to do an Author Interview and well here it is.

Essentially ask myself some questions and let you guys in on who I am, how I write and what I think’s important. I’ve put the link below so if you’re interested in getting a little insight into me and my writing please watch!

Castmodean and CaptPFDennis will be co-hosting a new live audio podcast on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm EST.

We’re calling it “The Author’s Outpost”. We’d like to bring you a show dedicated to the writing of

Foundry missions in the words of the authors themselves, as well as the hosts. We hope you’ll

join us each week. A link to our show will be available here at StarbaseUGC on show days.

Today is kinda a big deal day in the Star Trek Online foundry universe. While most of us are reeling from the all too soon loss of Mr. Leonard Nimoy, it was announced this afternoon that we will be getting a great big update to how the sectors in Star Trek Online work. Now we need that the walls were coming down between worlds, but we hadnt really gotten a look at the shape of this. And now as of the blog released today, we have, and it is glorious. And here it is:

http://starbaseugc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/galaxy.png

What does this mean for us? Two things, firstly we are getting a number of CANON PLANETS added and most especially added as doors. What it also means is that they are rearranging the galaxy to move things to a more canonical location. So smirk also posted this: asking that anyone who needs to rearrange the wording on their missions, to get with him so that this can be arranged for when this goes live

Update 2/12/2015

The editor is back online with the completed maintenance today

 

 

 

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…
