when you go into the foundry tool itself you can see the amount each misison has been played and how much dilithium each mission has earned.

it does not give you the grand total. you have to add that up yourself.

Honestly though, I think for most authors the tips are just kind of like, a bonus. Tips is really a good word for it, since it's just like a little side thank you rather than the purpose of the work.

I honestly was against an idea like the tip jars way back when people proposed it because I was afraid of monetizing any kind of reward for the authors.

Still, I feel for a lot of authors who have missions that are so far down the list that they miss a lot of plays. There are some real gems in there if you are lucky enough to find them. (Heaven help if you are a middle rated Klingon mission! Talk about backwater.)

Hopefully some of the ideas mentioned in the cryptic conference call about foundry spotlighting are taken to heart and implemented well. It'd be nice to see some unknown authors out there get something far better than tips; more plays.

I have 4 missions up and collected somewhere between 1000 and 2000 DIL so far.

Since I only have 1 mission so far, got 500. I'm pleased with that

Just to add my tally to the list, I have about 213,250 dil income over 8 Fed missions.

I have 2 Daily missions live that netted me around 100.
Hopefully that will change once I release my new lengthy one, although people will not play it because I ran out of foundry slots from when I was gold, and it has reviews from a different mission.

If you never empty your tip jar that also has the total (which in my case I've never actually emptied it). But once you take anything out, then you'll have to add them all up individually.

Why not just buy another slot with some dilithium and copy the mission over to reset the reviews?

Gee, that's a lot of dilithium... I wonder how much I'll be getting when Voyage Home gets finished

After all, if I can do that -and- grind up enough ore at the same time... It'll give me a lot of C-Points real quick
