if your going down the tos route then be warned there are no authentic tos maps in there yet. that would be a pretty big limitation. they should get added at some point.

my advise is make up a story that seems fun to you but dont try to make a masterpiece just yet. play around with it, and if you mess it up dont worry. once you get the hang of it and you start to see what it can and cant do then you can start making a proper mission.

i tend to find that you can never please the entire crowd here. no matter how you make it someone will love it, and someone will hate it. the best course of action is to make a mission that you find fun. do you like a strong story, so you like tons of combat, mainly ground, mainly space? make a mission that you personally would want to sit down and play, and others will like it.

if you ask what people want you will get conflicting answers. if your stuck for specifics then try to do what cryptic do. missions that last 30-40 minutes. have 3 or 4 maps, a mix of ground and space, and not too combat heavy. that is what people are used to and you probably wont go far wrong. once you get the hang of it then you can try experimenting with things.
