# 1 An Idea Of Mine!
11-12-2012, 02:46 AM
Hello there, this may possibly end up being a wall but I'll do my best to break it down so its not too hard to read through.

So I've had this idea for quite a while but had a few difficulty's making it work for me, I figured it out.

I know that some Foundry users like creating multiple missions based as one episode which I find absolutely awesome, so I've devised a cunning plan.

The hopeful idea of bringing an addition to the foundry which would be to create sector maps.
my first idea was the ability to have these sector maps in a way of the foundry mission being like a mini campaign like 5 missions rolled into this sector you've created plus maybe areas that the foundry creator would like added in, such as planets and stations to visit.

Once I got this Idea I thought oh maybe this is a bad idea because some players prefer to do one mission and do the other missions later on, doing other things like dailys inbetween, so I thought maybe with the sector map that the foundry author makes, the sector map can have a Navigational Beacon which could take the player who is playing the mission back to ESD. Then when the player wants to carry on with the mini campaign they go to ESD transporter pad/Sol System and the mission will pop up so they can return.

My idea can be used in many ways, one of the main reasons is making STO... be Star Trek, creating these sector blocks will and could add that element of "To Explore Strange New Worlds and Seek Out New Life And Civilizations". my theory behind this is simple, everyones imagination has the factor of being able to create things that would be "Strange" and "New".
Plus for foundry authors it could be a very nice way of combining their multiple missions dedicated to being a full story arch into one mini-campaign, that could be continued at any time the player sees fit.

any questions and your thoughts on this would be very nice.
