Is there any chance you can fix it so that we can duplicate or copy and paste enemy NPC groups. I'm personally more than a little bored with making costumes then having to apply them to every individual enemy in an NPC group.
Other than that I love the Foundry and hope it's back up soon
You can. I did it last Thursday after the editor came back up. I was wanting to swap out one of the old interior maps on a mission of mine for the new drozana station, so I copied and pasted four groups of enemy mobs over. Worked just fine, except it did something weird with the names. I had reskinned a bunch of feds to have TOS uniforms, but I didn't mess with the names. It copied fine with the uniforms, but the names turned into Actor #1, Actor #2, etc. Had to delete the names so it would revert back to <unnamed actor> so the game would know to fill in the blank.
Edit: I just realized that's not really what you meant. sorry.
The foundry is the main reason I play STO and I find it very frustrating when I cant finish what I started... it seemed to be working fine since the last time it was down.
The only thing that I noticed, is that when I copy and paste an object that had a "Y-value" that wasnt ground level... the copied version reset it to zero... this was not an issue before the last update... makes it very lengthy when I build an entire structure above ground level and I have to adjust the "Y-value" for every object. Can you change this back so it copies and pastes exactly what it has?
I would also like to hear an estimated down-time... a few hours? a day? a week? a month again? Just trying to update my website with new mission release dates... thanks devs! Love the foundry overall!

I had the same map deletion crash issue... solved it by removing all objectives from the map first and then deleting.. not sure if that works for everyone though...
I suspect that might be the issue. I have since moved all the objectives off that map and onto the new one, but I haven't gone back and tried to delete the map without objectives. I'll have to try it when the Foundry comes back.
Foundry issues that I had:
(1) Deleting a map crashes Foundry to the desktop.
(2) NPCs fall through captain's chairs.
(3) Previously killed NPCs respawn. Even though you may have completed an objective, the NPCs you kill during it respawn later.
(4) Items placed into buildings seem to hover; thus, you have to place elements outside of the buildings. If you set their y-axis to align with terrain, the objects move to the roof of the buildings. Regardless about which setting you use, you cannot get consoles, crates, and other placables to flush with the floor. It only works outside of buildings.
