It's sad, I can't be the only one feeling this way. As JupiterBroadcasting's Chris mentions in STOked episode 109, the Foundry can keep the community happy - players like me will stay in the game just to create their own content, and others will remain in the game due to the new content being generated by the Foundry.
Don't let the limitations get you down. I almost gave up on the Foundry for the same reason when I started out, but then I started playing more UGC missions and I realized that with a little creativity, you can overcome almost all of the limitations in some fashion.

And you don't have to have a subscription to use the Foundry; you can buy project slots with Refined Dilithium in the game.
