When creating a new project, the allegiance selector will no longer list allegiances that are not supported
OK... Ive been saying this since the get go but the Foundry seems a black hole communication wise.
The "allegiance" needs to go or needs reworking entirely.
It prevents us from creating "content" and is a needless roadblock.
It makes people have to "fake" a lot of stuff.
Here is what I mean. Say I am doing a KDF map. You cant have Klingons as enemies. You can have Orions as enemies. So you cant do a House vs House mission. Or suppress a Gorn Uprising. You would have to pick Starfleet and then pick alien and then create a costume to "fake" it. But then your fake Klingons or Gorn would be using phasers and not use Klingon specials like Bathleths or Targs.
It also creates issues where we must have KDF maps and FED maps even though the actual content might be neutral and anyone technically could play it.
Do away with "factions". Simply make it so we the authors tag something as Enemies or Neutral or Friendly rather than the editor using a very narrow predetermined set of enemies.
This is especially constrictive now since we have Romulans forced to be Feds or KDF.
