# 1 Collaborative Mission Design?
04-16-2011, 01:18 AM
I wonder if there is any way I can work together with a friend on foundry missions—not just a conceptual exchange of ideas (as done here on the forums), but actually from within the foundry. I could not find any such functionality, so I came up with this idea.

It seems technically difficult to manage two or more players working on the same mission at the same time, so instead I think of team based (or perhaps fleet based) repositories of missions that other players of that group can continue to work on or perhaps incorporate in their own missions. Based on current foundry development, “sharing” projects would seem the easiest method to achieve something like this.

So, Is there actually any way of working together like this in game? I’d also like to know how you handle collaborative mission design. What forms of communication do you use and what portions of development do you share and how frequently? Do you share accounts (is that legal?) to have another player look at your unfinished designs? I am basically looking for some inspiration on how to work together with my friends.

Thank you!
