# 1 Your favorite Foundry AUTHORS?
11-30-2011, 02:44 PM
Everyone has a favorite mission. How about your favorite Author?

Maybe it's one author that puts out a bunch of missions you enjoy, or maybe it's one that put out a one-hit wonder that you really liked. Either way, you recall the mission enough to remember the person's @name.

So let's have it. What are your favorite authors?

If i had to pick one?

Cerritouru: respected author and android enthusiast... Heck, i'd choose him for his choice of MACO uniforms in the mission 'Surrounded' alone! (they look like Jean Paul Gaultier designed them and this amused me no end) :p

Who says stone cold borg killers can't be stylish??

Also, he was the first among the foundry community to give my mission a chance even though it was horrendously long when it 1st came out!

Hey, I never said you just had to pick one! Throw as many as you like, as long as they're your favorites!

Omg! Thank you! I am really proud! And your mission is one of the best, so I am glad to be there in the correct time!

About the topic, is hard to tell, there so many excelents authors, Pure_big is one of them, Alimac, Sovereign77x, KineticImpulser, Nagorak, Leviathan99 and I could be all day doing this and still miss some good author. So, that is why, I am just going to thank you all the players that made any foundry mission and to the players that support them!

I'll join in the mutual-adoration-fest here for a minute...

I've played many of the story-based Foundry missions that pop up on the forums or StarbaseUGC. I've enjoyed most of them immensely. I've been privileged to assist two of the community's finest non-native-English speaking authors polish up their text.

But two authors really stick out.

Kirkfat's "Return to Terra Nova" is a future episode of Star Trek begging to be made for TV or film.

And my nine-year old thought RogueEnterprise's "First Cause, Then Effect" was the Coolest. Thing. EVAR! He played it first and told me I had to try it. You blow up my ship ON PURPOSE. Genius.

Sweet, my missions are hits with 9 year olds! =D

I think amongst my favorites would be Captain_Revo of "Worst of Both Worlds" fame. Sort of an oldie but goodie at this point, but all of his missions are consistently of high quality.

I really liked that one...just played it today and honestly it's only the third Foundry mission I've tried but it was polished. I didn't see any blatant typos, or godawful dialogue, or any problems, really.

The other two - which I won't name - were full of superfluous dialogue that was badly in need of an editor and numerous bugs despite being among the highest-rated missions out there.

FCTE felt professionally-done. I used to beta-test lots of community missions for Operation Flashpoint and I found that's where most fell flat...not that the mission itself was bad, but that it lacked polish to the point where you knew you were beta-testing something made by a fan and it hurt the immersion.

Haven't played that many yet, but I can tell you I've definitely struck on some great ones!

XR-377 because "A Will and a Barclay"

The.Grand.Nagus because The Dailies are beyond useful

Captain_Revo because "The Worst of all Worlds" can't wait to try the sequel!

RogueEnterprise because "Good Intentions" and "First Cause, then Effect"

I look forward to checking more of your missions!

I should really finish my first so I can throw it up here on the forums...
