I have a question... how do the devs actually choose the foundry spotlight mission? I am trying hard to create high quality missions but it doesnt seem like Im getting anywhere
My dream is to have one of my missions spotlighted but Im not sure what else I should do!

Can you tell me if the devs actually play every mission or are there criteria for them to review it for the spotlight? Is there a minimum rating? A minimum number of prior reviews? A minimum length?

I would love to know how the process works so that I can get mine up to par!

Thanks!

I think the team from Starbase UGC is making the recommendations, so you might want to kiss up to them.

Suggested spotlight missions come in from a variety of sources. These include the forums, Twitter, Facebook, Blog comments, in-game chat, podcasts, devs, Foundry Challenges, etc. Feel free to leave your mission name in this forum thread and I'll add it to my list of missions to be considered That goes for anyone reading this.

Cheers,

Brandon

I thought you did an interview with SBUGC where you said you wanted to put them in charge of that. What happened?

They are included under "podcasts" mentioned above -- they have submitted some great missions and continue to do so.

Who actually picks the spotlight missions? I've read several times that missions have been rated tied for first palce etc?

Is there a place we go to vote after playing them (other than the review tab?)

P.S Put on your mirror boots

I pick the missions that make it to the Spotlight after playing through them (them meaning all the missions that are submitted to be considered). I think you are referring to the missions that were recently spotlighted that won the past Foundry Challenges. Those are special contests I run and one of the prizes is that the winning mission gets a Spotlight feature.

Here are a few links to the last couple challenges:

#3: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=566151
#3 Winner: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=570761
#2: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=565741
#2 Winner: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=565911

Hi Captains,

Just a heads up that this week's Spotlight on the Foundry mission has been delayed until next Friday. The author had requested time to make a few edits to their projects, but the editor was unavailable for most of the week, so they'll be able to jump in now and make their edits before next Friday.

Thanks for your understanding

Cheers,

Brandon, I would not mind adding a mission, my very first which, you yourself reviewed on priority one almost 2 years ago.
