While I realize there are posts regarding this same issue,They did not come to a solution. As it stands when I go to the Tribble test shard I go over to the "Create Content" tab the "Create Character" button is greyed out and has been that way since Foundry launch. I signed the founder agreemnets but am unable to use the foundry. Any advice is welcomed, thank you in advance.
The foundry is currently down for one week while STO updates the system. If the button is greyed out , Are you on Holodeck. Foundry is only available on Tribble Test Server only. It has not been approved to go to Holodeck yet.
Just my luck that when I have time to make a mission it's down -.-
I suppose i'll have to make one when i'm free next... But with this update, perhaps it will include lots of lovely new stuff.
Even when the foundry is down you could still plot out your mission on paper, planning is the key so why not jot a few ideas down and think about how to create them. With a weeks downtime you could plan out a whole story arc, so use the time wisely and when it comes back up again you'll have a head start.
