Requesting Items that will improve Foundry Missions
 
I am certain that what i am going to write is not the absolute list of items which would be nice to have available in the Foundry. I would appreciate if developers reviewed what Foundry authors include in this thread because it will not only improve our stories, but also provide usable missions by Cryptic in the future.

Some items I came across.

1. A Klingon author can not make Klingon enemies. Eventhough Klingon history is filled with house wars, we are unable to use this aspect of the game. By providing this option, it is possible to create more low level missions which Cryptic has wanted to work on for the Klingon faction. Allow the Foundry authors to help you in this endeavor.

2. More TOS options. In regards to ships and NPCs.

3. Provide options to destroy objects with sachel charges

4. The ability to create melee only missions (Bat'leth tourneys)

5. Add civilian NPCs and NPC groups. Primarilly for promps, include religious leaders/monks.

6. The ability to save maps in a general file so an author can reuse maps in different missions.

Also
#1 in your list.
Use an enemy that also uses disruptors and reskin the individual actors within the mobs as Klingons. Problem solved.

As to others, I direct you to the many pages long thread which is the exact same topic as yours and located on the first page of the Foundry discussion forums.

Search function is your friend :)

Except, of course, they're not really Klingons. ;)

Does this also work with ships in space battles?

Technically true. Whatever the actual race of the mob is , is in fact what the mobs are. They will use tactics of that race. Kills of them will count toward the kill accolades for that race, but the reskinned mob will absolutely LOOK Klingon.

Yup. Mobs/ Actors = Space Mobs/Ships.
Choose an enemy race that uses disruptors and go in and individually reskin the actors/ships with a klingon costume, or your own unique costume of original aliens or the blues brothers, or whatever .... :)
