Where can I buy Foundry Slots
 
** I DO NOT WANT TO USE DILITIUM ** PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU SAY "You have to have 7000 Dilithium"

Where in the store can I buy foundry slots as a silver member. I do not care to spend weeks getting 'dilithium' just to get foundry slots.

Cheers

simple answer, you cannot buy foundry slots with anything other than dilithium

so you are basically out of luck for what what you want. I will point out however it will only take weeks to earn the 10k dilithium you need to unlock 4 slots if you dont play regularly. If you run the foundry daily, you can have enough in 8 days, and that is only if you run that one mission.

*EDIT:* Thinking about it, TECHNICALLY, you can buy foundry slots with Cryptic Points. You will have to however use the dilithium exchange to convert those CP into DIL, however/

Where is the Dil exchange?, in game at the normal exchange?
You would think PW/Cryptic would put it in 'services', they do want to make money now that its F2P

You access it by the drop-down menu ( V arrow ) on the bottom right corner of your minimap, from where you access the bridge.

For those that would like to know (Silver Account (or Golds that want more slots))

I got 8 Foundry slots by selling 78cc for 279 Dilithium (Dil) each (21762 total gain) and 10000 for 4 slots twice.

Since I sold at 4 below the going rate I got the Dil almost instantly. The whole process took about 2 minutes (of course then I had to wait for 2 hours for the slots to show up in my foundry account)

Just incase you don't mind trading Cryptic Credits for Dil.

Cheers

but you got the slots, which is good :)

I was potentially the first person to try to buy slots on Tribble when F2P was in testing, it didnt go as well for me then... :)

Where do you go to buy the foundry slots with dilithium? I've been trying to figure out how to buy slots for the better part of 4 hours. Someone in game told me you buy the slots with cryptic points on the login screen when you click over to the creation tab but I didn't see a way to do it. I haven't come across a foundry slot listed on a vendor anywhere in game yet.

You can buy foundry slots ONLY with Dilithium (DIL)
7000 DL for 2 slots
10000 DIL for 4 slots

You can 'buy then with CP' buy buying DIL in the DIL Exchange

But I think the purchasing is bugged at the moment

Thanks for the response. I'll keep an eye on the patch notes for the fix. However, where do i go to buy the slots once it's fixed? I haven't found it on a vendor anywhere yet. I even double checked Stardock, Starfleet academy, K7 and DS9.

You will see them when you chose the 'Create Content' tab I believe.
