Firstly Highborne is an awesome person to discuss any foundry things with.

He helped me even when I was silly enough not to agree with him. He knows what it takes to get your mission noticed.

Secondly saying I'm going to do my own adventures and using the foundry tool are two totally different things. I hope you love Sim type games. I love Train simulators and love making my own maps. If you think that is nerdy and boring good luck with Foundry.

Thirdly I have been playing with foundry for 3 weeks now for many many many many hours and still have not got a mission worth bragging about.

Fourthly I may be literate, but am a published paid writer and find it difficult to create story arch's on foundry.

I do not write this to lower your motivation or put you down in anyway. It's just you need to hope on tribble foundry and work your little tail off, otherwise when foundry hits holodeck there is going to be so much golden content your mission will be lucky to get a look in.

Here is something I've been using may help.

beginning of set intro

title: Title of your script
description: your mission, who-why-when-how-what

grant mission dialogue
costume: who is giving you the mission
style: what's there emotion
text: what are they saying

map transition (to create a map transfer,the spawn point/contact/enemy/object must be on a new map)
leaving;what map does your mission start from
leave from:were in the sto universe does your mission start
costume:who is is your first contact
style:what's there emotion
text:what are they saying
button:what is on the button to start your mission
spawn point at:name of your first spawn point
map mission:title of first map mission

end of set intro

tools

task interact with object
mission text: what is the objective
way points: do you want the object highlighted on the map
object: what is the object
project map:what map are you on
text: what do you want written on the button
animation: what emotion animation is taking place
duration: what is the duration of interacting with the object

task - kill enemies
mission text:what is the objective
way point: do you want the object highlighted on the map
encounter: who are you killing
project map: what map are you on

task talk to contact

mission text: what is the objective
way points: do you want the object highlighted on the map
actor: what is the title of the person you wish to talk to
project map: what map are you on
style: what's there emotion
text:what are they saying
button: what is on the button to reply or continue

pop up dialogue (Can be placed anywhere)
costume:who is is your contact
style:what's there emotion
text:what are they saying
button: what is on the button to reply or continue

task reach marker
mission text:what is the objective

filbone, My plan is to get myself ready for it to be on the holodeck by being on the tribble testing for the next few days or weeks leading up to being on the holodeck and look at videos and read it on the internet. That's I am going to do. That way I will be ready in time for being on the holodeck. I using tribble testing to practice on so I be ready for it on the holodeck. So I am doing my homework on the foundry beta. Past few months I have doing my homework on the foundry beta. I am getting ready for it. I was just want to promo it. That's all. Beside I have a speech problem and my right ear I can't hear. I have a disable.

Look, I have to agree. This is the Foundry forums, yes, but it primarily exists here to help people working within the Foundry.

It's not bad to announce that your mission is done and to request people to play it for feedback, but constant spam-bumping to advertise a mission that simply doesn't exist yet and by your own admission won't exist for several more weeks is simply useless and, to be straight up honest with you, annoying.

If you absolutely had to do this, I'd recommend the Tribble thread, but since this one is more about Foundry authors helping Foundry authors as opposed to advertising missions, I suggest you keep that in mind and move your adverts elsewhere.

Just to bring my point home a little, I have VERY little compulsion to try your mission now. Not just because I've been annoyed to death by reading the constant bump messages of "coming soon', but also because I've noticed slightly substandard grammatical finesse in your own postings even here. In other words, and I hate it if I come off as a snot, but you simply haven't done yourself any favors with this thread.

Any who.....

This is the your audience, welcome to the foundry. Don't let us get you down, prove us wrong. Eithur give us something we can help you with, something you are willing to let us criticise and this thread could be worth while. You have the attention of some amazing, knowledgeable sto players and I suggest you use it.

You're not the first I've seen use "arch" on the forums...it's becoming a pet peeve at this point.

I'll assume the rest of that is at the OP.

Jeremy Schultz's Star Trek: My Online Adventures is not a story arc. It's my series of missions that I create. I just want to have a name for my series. I will tell you what my missions all about. My threads will say Jeremy Schultz's Star Trek: (my mission name). I will also give you notes on this thread.

":" aren't allowed in Foundry mission names. I agree with some of the others in this thread. You need to get into the toolset while it's still on Tribble and get yourself up to speed if you want to achieve greatness when it hits Holodeck.
