The big push towards a newer, better, Foundry begins in earnest on February 14th, but this will require at least a week of downtime. Salami_Inferno explains:

Hello Loyal Tribble Users!

On Monday February 14th we’re going to push a new build to Tribble. This build will be the very first step towards getting triggers, branching dialogue, and copy/paste into the foundry!

Unfortunately, the preparation will require a week or more of Foundry downtime.

What does this mean?

  • Starting Monday you will no longer be able to create or publish missions on Tribble for at least a week as we shake out the bugs
  • You will still be able to search and play missions that were published prior to the Monday
  • Your missions are safe and will not be deleted by this update
  • If you have access to red shirt closed beta shard the latest updates are already up there and available to test

Additionally, a few tweaks have been made to the Holodeck Foundry missions to resolve pathing issues. Stormshade keeps us up to date:

Hey folks,

A quick update: Last night the update went live with the fix for the pathing issues, and all 4 of these awesome missions have been republished! Pathing issues in these missions should now be resolved.

Thanks,

Stormshade

So if you were planning on getting some Foundry time in over the next week, now’s the time to beg, plead or blackmail your way to a coveted Red Shirt.

Or you could take the opportunity to make frivolous romantic gestures to your loved ones… Nah… Who am I kidding? 😉
