Ask Cryptic: March 2012 - Submit Your Questions, Please!
Hello Captains!

"Ask Cryptic" is making its triumphant return! Please post your questions below, and dStahl will answer selected questions from all those received. Please post them today as I will ship questions off to Dan tomorrow morning.

Also, remember that questions will not be answered in this thread -- answers will be posted in an upcoming "Ask Cryptic" Web Feature that will be released in the beginning of March.

Will the 1000 day veteran ship be a cruiser, or will we have the option to choose between diffrent classes

What are short and long term plans for Fleets?

1) Are you still expecting to only have 2 FEs for the entire year as D'Angelo previously stated? If so, what other types of content will be filling in the gap?

2) What is the ETA for a meaningful KDF content addition? This year? 2103? 14?

3) Is Season 6 still scheduled for June as previously stated? Is a crafting revamp still part of S6 as previously stated?

Are you going to be able to increase the number of Feature Series that you can do in a year anytime soon?
Oops, Nagus got there before me

Will you be including any Dailies in the FE's in future, or retroactively to the ones that already exist? (Romulan Space is looking a little bare of dailies right now, unless I missed them)

Will you be back on Twitter soon?

When can we expect to be able to create optional objectives in the Foundry? What about career based objectives?

When are the FAs going to be overhauled so that they are useful?

When can we expect some open PvP zones? (Such as the occasionally brought up Drozana bar fight timed melee open PvP)

Be honest, your time away from Cryptic was just a ploy to force the addition of bacon in the breakroom, wasn't it?

1) The Foundry roadmap post has not seen an update in over a year now. As you started this thread, I wonder will it be revisited anytime in the near future? If anything an update would be greatly appreciated. you reached a number of the goals listed on there but a good many are also not touched on yet. Any update, even if its 'moved to long term due to technical considerations' would be appreciated.

2) Before 'The Dark Time'(IE the wilderness days when Atari abandoned Cryptic) It had been stated by yourself and others that cstore items would be made available to authors for use in their projects. As of approx. march of last year, very few, if any, of these items have made their way into the editor itself. We have been told in the past that it takes time for hte hookups to be added to these items to make them work in the scope of the Foundry. While I can understand this takes time from someones schedule, will we see this rectified and the older assets added along with the newer ones? The Vedek outfits were in the foundry early, but removed, so they should be easy to put back into the editor since they are done? Is this correct?

2a)Going forward, can we possibly start seeing 'dual development' of assets so that they can be plugged into the Foundry in a timely manner? That way there is no need to go back and shoehorn things in.

3)Now that you have apparently stepped aside from the position of overall producer for the Foundry, has someone been appointed to that position? Are you managing a dual role of EP for STO and producer on Cryptic's foundry efforts?

After almost two years with no updates and promises of updates, are we ever going to see more PvP additions to the game or can we just consider PvP a feature that will never see any future updates?

What kind of exclusive KDF things can we be seeing in the short-term (in terms of content, features, any new ships etc.)?

The Qo'nos Targ area has been untouched since the First City's release in Season 4, will we be able to breed Targs that do the same job as Tribbles and will they also come with Attack Targ's at some point in the next few months?

What Foundry Updates will we be seeing in the next major Foundry update patch and when will that major update be?

Whoot! Great news now to think of some questions

Where are the sehlats on Vulcan? Qo'noS has targs.
