I like the concept of the Foundry,
tip jar is a GOOD addition (and even a bit more incentive for me to one day make missions of my own?).
i don't like the UI
i don't like the "mission wrapper"
my #1 request for Foundry is a better UI, with much more community features!
- personal channels
- favorite authors i can subscribe to and get a mail if he released something new
- better "channels"
- thumbnails for missions
- ACCOUNT WIDE mechanic to let me know if i played that mission already (that tech is so wonky it doesn't even *remember* correctly what i played on one char).
also DO NOT HIDE the Foundry missions behind a button that no one may ever click.
It needs a big shiny UI window just like you made for your own Story Missions.
and #2 add a TIMER to the foundry missions instead of this 0/3 wrapper (that you can finish in 10 seconds)
i can earn 8000 dilithium a day by playing STF's, or sitting in Kerrat
make it feasible to PLAY Foundry all day long and earn your 8000 that way
also make it feasible to earn XP and level up only through foundry missions.
i'm on my 9th ALT right now (need a KDF engineer for the Bortas ;P ), and the only old Cryptic missions i care to play are the ones with lots of XP and must have Items.
The Foundry should be an alternate way of progression and an alternate way of playing the game for the people who did everything else.
With only 2 FE's a year, the Foundry is more important than ever and needs to be put over 9000.
