How is the Foundry?
 
I can not log onto tribble for some reason, so I'm wondering how the foundry is performing? In your opinion how close to being released on the holodeck is it?

most of the problems are just silly little bugs. clear them up and in my view its ready. (some issues with animation and costume, the npc pathfinding in interior maps etc) how long those bugs take it fix though is anybody's guess.

although keep in mind they plan to keep adding and improving it as it goes along so there is no 'finished product' or clear line that says its ready with the foundry, so it all comes down to if the devs want to add and test any new features before its ready to go live.

but at this stage its possible to make some pretty great missions and im happy with its general performnace.

It's getting there... some issues are in desperate need of fixing while other features need to be added. Overall I would say it is working well for what is available.

If they would just fix the wandering/idle stuff and the NPC pathing, I'd be happy. I'm mostly happy with it now.

Oh, and the NPC ship costuming bug that was introduced last update needs to be sorted out. That is making a lot of peoples missions look really strange.

Still some big bugs, but it's coming together nicely.

Far away.

Missing:
Ship costumes for NPC contacts (they're coded in but not appearing; every NPC contact ship looks the same)
XP for completing missions
Pathing needs work
Destructible objects
Wandering

There are some people that will never think its ready because of their own personal overreaction to various minor issues and unrealistic expectaions. However, most rational people understand that no system in an MMO is ever bug free or will ever have every feature people want on its initial release. Personally, I think it could be ready to go live in a months time.

The foundry has got a few too many bugs that need fixing before the holodeck players get to it.
the amount of moaning that cryptic would receive over it would be less than stellar
