# 1 We need more assets!
09-09-2011, 07:12 PM
Considering the recent Ask Cryptic question and Dan Stahl's answer to it

Quote:
Q: OldLordSkull: What are your immediate/short-term plans for the Foundry? Us authors would love more assets, triggers, cut-scene tech and more, but we’ve seen nothing for a long time.

A: Because the Foundry is a cross project tool that will appear in multiple Cryptic Games, the development team that manages the Foundry features are currently working on features for Neverwinter. That said, in order to bring over all of the new features and updates they are adding to the tool, we need to synch up our code between our projects in order to take advantage. We expect to do this sort of big merge again after F2P launches. In the short term, one of the things the STO team can do is hook up new social zones for Foundry access
The STO foundry needs some sort of love. If it can't be new features used in Neverwinter until the next code merge then it should be something else. For example assets, maps and costumes. The foundry community feels that the STO foundry hasn't been given the attention it deserves and therefore to me it feels like Cryptic don't appreciate the contribution of foundry authors make to this game. I know on an intellectual level that this is not the case but that is the way it feels at the emotional level.

There are plenty of things that could be done to rememdy this situation without relying on the cool new features that the code merge will bring to the foundry. I would like to present a list (and open it up to others) to expand the list.

Map List:
TOS-era maps used in the Devidian FE Series.
A few more 'empty' interiors Fed, Klingon and otherwise.

Asset List:
TOS-era consoles
A wider variety of ship 'details' particularly for federation... miranda's are not the only ships to get destroyed in the federation.
Bajoran Orbs
Energy Weapon Dampening zone like in Colliseum

Costume List.
Jupiter costumes including Vet variants
Starfleet and Klingon Academy.
Bajoran Militia
Oberth
TOS-era uniforms
Enterprise uniforms
Basically every C-Store ship and character costume added since the Bajoran militia unis.

This is just a small sampling of things that should be addessed for the foundry. Thank you.

I hope the Foundry gets some love soon. There hasn't been a lot of updates for a while and after it breaking twice recently...

The Foundry could defiantly use some new features and options

This is a great thread. It's a shame the a dev won't read it.

If new assets for the foundry were to be introduced as C-store purchases, would you buy them?

basically been on strike since the foundry editor likes to minimize on every single map change during preview
