Just like with the random "Explore Unknown System" missions.
(some of the missions I've played have been quite interesting, but it's kind of annoying to spend 30 minutes on a mission, with ten minutes of it being loading screens because you keep bouncing back between your bridge, space, a station, space, your bridge, space, other space, a station, space, your bridge.......
Is there any way to improve this, or is it just inherent to STO's engine?
There has definitely been an increase in loading time for map transitions. We have no idea why and it's not something we (Foundry authors) can control. Hopefully, someone at Cryptic knows why Foundry load times are stretching into the unreasonable.
