Personally I think that sux.

I think that the devs don't want to give authors the capability to inflict damage because they think that we would abuse it.

Sometimes a bit of damage or consequence is needed in a story.

For me one of my pet hates about the foundry is the fact that nothing bad happens.

Click here, do this... but, wait. Nothing happens even if you get it wrong.

The only thing that you are able to do is spawn a group of NPC's to DO the damage.

But not all situations call for that.

I would love to be able to create a engineering catastrophe on a ship.

Antimatter plasma fire, explosions, etc. Allow players so depth to their story.
