A few questions
 
Is there a Foundry chat channel?

Is there a way to copy/paste a project? Maps within a project?

Is there a good faq/guide someone can point me to? (I wish I was more surprised there's no good sticky about that in the forum)

As far as I know there isn't a way to copy and paste a project, but you can duplicate maps within a project. If you haven't seen it already I highly recommend visiting StarbaseUGC for Foundry tips and tutorials. There's a lot of really good video's on there about how to use the Foundry.

Thank you for that link. I want to start my first foundry mission myself and have been looking for reference material myself. ill for sure check out that link.

A good place to start is my new Primetime UGC back to basics series. Part 5 will be released fairly soon.

Those are near the top of the master-list.

I was more talking about chat channels IN the game -- I'm not sure why I'd want to go somewhere completely different, but good to know.

well most of us can't really use a sto channel while working in the foundry. It's not there in the editor, so we typically use chat clients like pidgin. There used to be a few foundry channels in sto, but none of them got used, when having pidgin and foundry minimzed meant that you can always follow the chat regardless of what part of the foundry you are in.

If you need instant answers, that's the place to go.

Now I am going to view that url but maybe you can give me a quick idea of some foundry limitations.

The new Romulan mission you have to save the civilians, is this doable in foundry weather on ground or space ?
EI :
Save as many civilians or crew as you can before they die

Can npcs die if you don't save them in time?

Are there other significant limitations you can tell me about before I get started?

zorbane 12-13-2012 04:19 PM

Yes friendly NPCs can die, however I don't think there's any way to track how many you can save.

zahinder 12-13-2012 08:48 PM

Fair enough.

Another question -- any tips on gauging difficulty? I'm finding I'm breezing through most missions, but I have a level 50 captain with purple MK XI gear.
