It is probably only temporary. (I hope I hope). I just published my first mission for review so I'm finally free to try some of the other missions.
I have to say, v.03 of the Foundry was predictably eccentric but it held up pretty well, and I tried to push it to the limit. I maxed out the number of maps and I tried tricks to re-use existing maps (and failed) but that's okay because it felt like the mission was getting too long anyway.
It will be so super cool . I got some super effects going on . I don't mind it's down the foundry just came out and we are learning every day new tricks and effects . look for "Borg" soon 5 days tops . I got 3 maps to work togeather Vulcan space ,damaged Borg cube interior . and Vulcan Ground missions . It has to do with saving Spock lol . The foundry has it's problems right now some parts or add ons don't show up but QA testing can fix it . Its hard the first few days and i got a head pain but i do understand more now how it works . It's just getting me happy the way it's coming out . Lot of fun to see it come togeather . Search youtube STO Foundary for insturctions.
Sorry I didn't see this thread yesterday, all. I was here and worked to get the missions back up as soon as possible. (We're having some IT fun in our offices right now that makes things more interesting than usual.)
Ugh yeah they're down again damned that's annoying! I don't mean to complain, it is a beta after all. But man, when you spend some hours fine tuning a mission and wanna publish and make it findable, its more frustrating than the hardest STF lol.
