# 1 In need of an foundry author
09-19-2013, 08:39 PM
Some time ago, I had started a thread regarding how best to setup an escort for STF's.
http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=295581
The thread is pretty popular and has over 83K views. Throughout the discussions in this thread there has been a lot of information passed around that is believed to be true regarding damage output. The only problem is that in many cases the potential difference in damage is likely to be quite small.

In order to test different theories, we would need a highly controlled environment, preferably with non-aggressive borg as well as gates (like in infected space) if possible. This would allow us to test different builds and weapon types and parse the results, thus providing some sort of scientific data.

Is there someone that would be willing to assist with this? If so, please let me know, or feel free to comment on the thread linked above. Thanks.

As far as i know the possibility to let the Borg (or any other enemy for the matter) to be passive has been removed, due to it being used in farmgrinding missions. They will always fight back if they have to.

Well that's wonderfully craptastic.
I imagine we could test on other species as well, given that it is damage that we're really testing for.

there seems to be a way to make them non-aggressive ie they run but they will alwes shoot when shot at ill see if i can put something together when i get home. the hole reson i stated messing with the foundry was to make a build test map

Well if your interested in testing different build, definitely check out that thread. I created a list of different builds for different ships with links for them at the bottom of the OP.
