I'm guessing on like 2 months from now. Yup 2 months, maybe early March. Cryptic is scared out of their tight uniform pants on this one that if it doesn't go perfectly, the ships all self destruct and STO goes boom. I haven't seen glowing reports from the tribble testers saying it is in good shape for launch now.

There are several threads about the Foundry on the first page already, and one of them is speculating about the release date.

While I don't have specific dates to share, I can show you what I have on my January Calendar:
Decision whether to turn Foundry on Holodeck or wait till next Foundry Update
Feature Episode Series 3 Starts this month! (featuring the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _)
All Good Things Uniforms
Vulcan Player Ship
Prep for 1 year Anniversay on Feb 2
Prep for 400 day vet rewards Feb 19

We've also started work on Season 4 features as well as a few new surprises which I'll get to once I finally get to the Engineering Report.

Btw... Star Trek is doing great! Welcome to all the new players!

i have seen no signs cryptic are either scared about its release or that the foundry being good or bad would actually cause sto to 'go boom'.

personally i think the foundry is is pretty good shape. a couple of problems need ironing out but i would not be surprised if it launches this month or early next. i think many of the people who have actually made some missions would agree that it pretty much does what its meant to. some features are certainly missing but i think we all knew (or were warned) that it will ship missing some features that will be added over the next few months.

the quality of missions that can already be produced are excellent.

As mentioned, the decision was made that we are going to keep the Foundry on Tribble until we can get the next big Foundry features in (which are scheduled to go in at the very end of January). Once those new mission features are in the foundry, have had time to test on Tribble and we are in agreement that its looking good, we'll move the feature over to Holodeck.

In the meantime, we are looking into ways to bring over a few missions from Tribble to Holodeck for players to check out and give feedback on to see what people think of what's being made thus far.

could that be adapted for everybody. it would save a lot of time if we dont have to remake what is already there?

Is there going to be a way to potentially filter out community authored missions that simply don't make sense for the current timeline and how things are laid out by you guys in STO. Maybe a flag or something that can be set that states this or something when the mission is reviewed?

This is my main biggest fear of the Foundry.

If I am going to play missions from other people I want to make sure it holds true to what's going on in the game and isn't something... really off the wall that doesn't make much sense.

I know I will get a reply from someone that will probably be along the lines of "you don't have to play those missions" which is true I don't.. but I know there are some great storytellers out there and I wouldn't be opposed at trying their missions.

I am really anxious to deliver on my Tellarite themed missions on live

That sounds like a great idea to whet player's appetite for the new content, and maybe silence a few detractors who think it will suck.
