Well, there's a Big List of all Foundry Projects out there, but what have you actually played for yourself? Even stuff that's not on that list? (not every author visits the STO forums).

Here, I'm going to list ALL (both good and bad) Foundry missions I've played and edit my personal list every time I do some more. Maybe you can add your own lists too. Hopefully this will showcase missions for other people to think about and hopefully get them to play them too.

  • The Celes Snare by RichardJ

I think a thread of missions we've played is a good idea, though I'm not sure saying which are bad is. But hey, I guess we'll see

thank you for playing my mission.

if you liked it (and you have a klingon) please have a go at 'crouching ty'gokor hidden demon'. i tried to make a really good mission that klingon players will enjoy and will be part one of a series.

I think you should try 'the siege' by me.

I've played some I can't remember.

3 part series by -ONE- .

Syndicate Extraction - 3 stars for interesting story and 4th star for overall polish so I gave it four stars.

Bull dog days - 3 stars. ordinary.

nursery of doom

shadows of our fathers - 4 stars for story. 3 for all the loading screens. The mission is nice, but the Foundry really limits missions like this, therefore i think it best in my personal opinion and crafting to avoid making them too complicated in terms of where they are set, because the more maps = more transitions = more loading screens = meh, especially if you transition maps every minute. So i personally try to keep it down. But as I said very interesting story. Could be more trekky in the dialogue and the part with Donavan is slightly funny but injecting TOO much personality into my captain character by putting in some of those outrageous responses. So clean up certain things, and this would be a five.

For me a mission to be worth recommending it has to feel trekky. It has to 'read' trekky. Since the dialogue is the only way to immerse someone in the story, it can't be A-team dialogue, the dialogue pop ups are th eonly things which keep us grounded in the star trek world.

This for me means I have to go back and watch over some TNG, and help with my trek dialogue.

I think my favourite thus far is shadows, but definitely those dialogue things with donavan have to be changed for it to receive a five.

Also played a couple others, I will edit my post to reflect this.

What I absolutely DO NOT like is people who are members of large fleets, getting 4 and 5 star reviews from like 100 fleet members, I think it is ridiculous. For missions that were terrible at best. I think the rating system should change.

5 - Star Trek Episode (I.E AWESOME)
4 - Star Trek Episode - B Story (AWESOME BUT NOT AS AWESOME AS 5)
3 - Worth Playing ( NOT ENTIRELY AWESOME BUT STILL VERY FUN, PLAY THIS MISSION)
2 - Everyone might not enjoy it, but worth a look (NOT THE BEST BUT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT STILL FIND IT FUN, THIS IS AN OPINIONED BASED RATING, I.E VARIES BASED ON OPINION.)
1 - DO NOT PLAY THIS MISSION. (OF COURSE DONT TOUCH THIS ONE EVER)

so that people stop avoiding missions with 2-3 stars, but can see there is still something there worth seeing, but that not to expect like a 'what lies beneath' type of awesomeness, you get what I mean? Everything can't be 4-5 stars and be awesome like what lies beneath, but alot of them can be fun worth playing missions even though they are rated 2-3, so I think the rating system needs looking at it, because you want a rating system which avoids people paying attentiont only 4-5 star missions, when 2-3 star might be still good.

I only detract points for extremely bad grammar like kiddy grammar, or terrible un star trek story, or terrible story altogether, or terrible direction. I do not take away points for limitations in the foundry, the story carries most of the weight in a rating I give a mission.

So a mission like 'the longing' I give this mission a three overall but I highly recommend it. But a three for story. It's fun, play it, don't pass it, it's an ok story, but it isn't earth shattering. So even though it is a three rating, it still is highly recommended in my book , but i shouldnt have to give a mission a five to recommend it.

Also i type bad on the forums but i think people can vouch my missions are proper english and grammar. punctuating in message boards just is too much time.

One thing though remember that speech by a character can be 'bad' english.

if my character says 'me and my crew' instead of saying 'my crew and i' that is not bad grammar on my part. because remember anything in speech mark goes, it might look bad on the character showing that he ain't that savvy with the english language, but as for writing, it isn't wrong.
