In a recent bug thread, Cryptic Frost told us that:

From what I have been told, Top Rated is supposed to only show 50 results by design.

Hi Fellow Foundry types,


I’ve been going through the forums (as I am rather loathed to do these days, but trawl I did), and I came across a rather interesting idea in the now forsaken Tribble Patch Notes thread from 8th November.


If you’re been on Tribble, testing like the good Nanovs you are, then you may well have noticed that there are now these shiny new Reputation Systems for New Romulus and STF’s, which give Shiny New Items and Abilities through a Fleetbase type progression system (just a lot cheaper).

Now we’re always looking for the latest way to attract players to our Missions, why not have a Foundry Reputation System? We’ve heard that in Neverwinter, Authors will earn special rewards, so why not do the same in STO but also for the players.


For the dilligant foundry players, offer some cool MKXII gear or an awesome ship, or exclusive Cryptic content, or whatever, hell even something along the lines of a dancing Three Headed hell puppy hologram would be awesome.. or is that just me?


Then we’ve also got the a separate but perhaps similar route for the Authors, where the more plays and reviews they get, the higher up the tree they go, perhaps unlocking special content packs along the way as well.


Perhaps the authors receive a fixed share of the rewards for each play of their mission (especially if mission rewards will be time based from now on) in addition to Tips so that those of us who spend hundreds and hundreds of hours slaving away in the foundry get a nice healthy return of the things our players are earning from our productions.


What do you guys think?

If you have any comments, criticism or additions to these ideas, please put them in the comments bellow, and I’ll try and round them all up and post them on the Forums in prettiful colours.


Your sometimes loveable Hell Doggy

Under the free-to-play model, only paying subscribers with “gold” accounts will be able to create missions.  But, a swarm of new players will play those missions.  Will this be good or bad for our community?

Hopefully the poll is self-explanatory. I was thinking of making a sister-site for the Neverwinter Foundry community, assuming that the game is still on-track. From the screenshots, the Neverwinter Foundry looks almost identical to STO’s Foundry, so it stands to reason that we could expand our scope (in some ways) to apply to both games. Or, we could remain focused entirely on STO.

What do you guys and gals think?

As a community, I know we must have many questions to ask Cryptic about the Foundry. I would therefore like to dedicate this post to collecting Foundry-related questions which we as a community will send to Cryptic in interview form.

The rules for participation are simple:

  • Please post your Foundry-related questions to Cryptic as comments to this post.
  • Please focus on the questions you’d like to ask rather than posting comments which are not questions to Cryptic.

The stage is yours, ask away…

We know that it’s a long-term goal, but how important is this feature for you?

I don’t plan on adding anything as annoying as the types of ads you see at memory alpha or the TrekBBS, but I was thinking about adding some ads to the sidebars to help possibly cover some of the monthly website costs, which aren’t much, lol. These ads would probably be something like deals on seasons of Trek, or links to buy Star Trek books on Amazon.

So, here is the poll (read the question, lol):

I know it’s an unfair poll, but I’m curious as to how many players are going to focus on beefing up the Klingons.  If you had to choose to make missions for one faction, which faction would you be writing for?  Or, put differently, the majority of your missions will be for which faction?

Not so much UGC-related, but I wanted to ask. [poll id=”3″]

Branching dialogue is the ability to present players with more than one prompt.  We see this in STO’s diplomacy missions, in the featured episodes, and in many missions where there is a multi-layered dialogue happening.  Is this feature a make or break for the Foundry?  Can we work around it if it’s not part of the Foundry?  Or, is it not really that important?
