Of course, Cryptic would do good if "mission doors" would be highlighted in some way on the Sector Block Map or your general UI. Or if Foundry missions also would get a "transwarp" button.
Agreed. Most players don't pop out of game to google anything -- and shouldn't have to.
Early on, Cryptic didn't always list the sector block mission doors were in and received a lot of complaints about that. They added them in to help players find their goals. Foundry authors should always keep that in mind.
If authors tell players where the doors or mission components are at but the players don't read it, that's on the players. If the foundry author does not provide location information and players get frustrated, that's on the author.
