this is all good news.

i do expect the first day or two to be a bit buggy/crashy as so many people will all try it at once something is bound to 'splode.

i will be praying to the server gods for a smooth launch.

What I've started to do is import my project into a new project and publish the new project for test purposes. After I'm done testing, I withdraw and delete the test project and continue working on the actual project. This is of course more tedious than it should be but it works for now.

True enough, but if you want to actively remove dialogue options as the player chooses them, you cannot accomplish that from within the dialogue tree itself without copying sub-trees and removing those options the player has already gone through. A process that becomes more and more tedious as the dialogue tree grows.

That's part of it, but can that result in different outcomes as per the example I posted?

Fast question - If we make a series of episodes, is there a way we can save custom races for future use?

I really don't wantot keep remaking the same race each time...

I haven't played with the Foundry in a couple of months. Is it possible yet to dictate how many Boffs are on the mission with they player? Can you specify only two, or maybe none, so that the player has to do it alone?

I'm not sure how it worked out, then - the top lot of the Top Rated list most of the time are all new missions with exactly one 5 star rating, even though a lot of them are pretty awful, incomplete, or just unplayable for one reason or another. My main reason for recommending the Hot list instead of Top Rated - it's actually got some pretty low rated missions in there, but it's all missions that have gotten a lot of ratings, so I feel like I can trust the average better.
