Adding Unlocks/Temp Playables
 
Well I just got thinking of this because I was thinking of a episode from my fanfiction that involves piloting a ship into the past that has the ship costume of an NX because of it travelling to the Pre-Fed era. Now my question is this, would we be able to enable the possibility of offering item/costume/ship unlocks (provided it was given the ok from the Cryptic team, like the mission gets reviewed and maybe made an official mission), or just made temp in that you pilot a "NX" for the mission but you don't keep it, bit like how in the Dividian mission your ship looked like a Klingon ship.

My guess would be that it would work as it does in the Devidian series. Most of the Enterprise-era loot (NX costume, uniforms) are stuff that they sell in the C-Store. From what I understand, the devs or the system will generate the loot for our Foundry missions and we won't have a say-so in that...

That seems a tad sad. Which is why I think the temp thing AKA holographic projection would work the best, if we are able to do that anyway.

I agree. And am planning on such. They had already made mention that if you want to have Fed fighting Fed, you simply drop in Klingon/Romulan/some other foe and change their costumes to Fed. Will help for some good storytelling.... :)

Well I meant having the player have a different ship costume, such as the NX or Galaxy-X but for the mission only for those who truely want to get into the story.

You wouldn't happen to have the source of this costume changing info would you? This would be truely awsome if I could alter a Romulan ship to look like a fed ship!

This is the closest Dev Post I could find on the above:

I've either read more into what he was saying or saw something a player posted instead. Though he doesn't state it specifically, it could just mean that you can alter the faction's ships/costumes/etc from *within* that faction's library... dunno. I'm hoping that my first supposition was correct... :D

I agree with your first supposition. But yeah hope we can do that holographic thing with the player's ship.
