*UPDATE: As of 6:20 it looks as though editing and missions are back online!*

 

As of the end of maintenance this afternoon, 1/21/2016, the Foundry has been taken offline for a yet to be determined length of time. Trendy posted the following in the official forums:

Hey folks!

With our update and everything coming up, we will once against temporarily be disabling UGC in STO in order to do Anniversary stuff and… other things. Also I have some Foundry stuff that I’m planning, but that’s me being a tease.

~Morrigan “LaughingTrendy”

So its possible we could be looking at downtime through the length of the anniversary event, so potentially a month, though this is all speculative at this point.  It is worth noting the, and other stuff, so maybe we will have some goodies coming up?

 

and speaking of goodies, there was this in the patch notes for tribble on 1/20/2016:

Foundry:

  • Added a small Omega Molecule as a Detail object.

  • Added a closed Dyson Sphere door as a Detail object.

  • Updated the Dyson template map:

    • The pointy down bits aren’t simultaneously open and closed now.

    • Removed the invisible collision around the platform in the main room.

so time will tell, it always does.

It’s our Author Profile show for August. This time, we highlight the work of Drogyn1701. We discuss his mission Under Grey Skies, as well as StarbaseUGC’s six mission series. Our Trek Take 5 discussion focuses on TNG’s The Inner Light. We also announced the winner of our $10,000,000 prize giveaway, and Robert Downey Jr. pays us a surprise visit in the studio(not really). So tune in for all the excitement. You won’t be disappointed. Well, you won’t be very disappointed. I suppose it all depends on what you’re expecting. I’m not a mind reader. Listen anyway. It’s a good episode.

Fed sided solo mission.

Lvl 51+

Space combat only with some dialogs to spice it up.

The Vaadwaur hacked a Transwarp hub to invade Vulcan sector. Your ship must rise up to the call: Your ship has been assigned to 24th Starfleet Counterstrike Squadron. Your immediate goal is to seal shut or destroy the hub in Bhea system, along with any Vaadwaur forces you encounter.
You will be assisted by Reman Fourth Phalanx.

Entry point is Bhea system in Beta Quadrant.

You have to escort a sanctioned Starfleet unit to Starbase 77.
The USS Berlin are good stuff, only too incline to twist orders in a way Admiral Quinn does not like. At all. Try to ensure Captain McLane and his crew arrive there without causing any problems.

Single player mission, Fed sided, level +35

30 minutes long mission, some ground and space combat.
