# 1 Season 7 Foundry Heads-up
11-09-2012, 12:04 PM
Hi Foundry Authors!

As we move closer to the launch of Season 7, the team and I wanted to give you all a heads up on some Foundry-related items:
1) At the time Season 7 launches, the editing tool for the Foundry, as well as being able to play missions, will be disabled as previous missions are republished -- we expect this editing downtime to last only a short while. Republishing will be an automatic process.

2) Foundry spotlighted missions will return once editing/ playing comes back up, including having their own billing in the Mission Journal! If you've been spotlighted in the past on the website, expect to receive an update through your past ticket with information on how your mission will be featured going forward. There will be some new things you need to agree to in order to continue having your mission featured. Details and instructions will be in your ticket update.

3) As you may have seen from the Tribble patch notes, we've made a change to how the Foundry Daily works. Zero posted more information here.
Thanks for your understanding and we look forward to seeing all of your amazing missions built during Season 7 and beyond.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

Thanks for the heads up

Hopefully this'll be the fastest foundry down time yet...

We saw part of those briefly on Tribble, I think.

It's probably just:

An extra round of EULA qualifications.

Maybe agreeing to let Cryptic copy/archive a non-editable version for the Spotlight version.

What do you mean by "ticket"?

I don't remember receiving anything when 'City of the Polmar Ree' was spotlighted.

I would imagine this is very much it, a limited release of the content and ideas to Cryptic for much what you imply.

Pretty much this Nothing too crazy. If you click the "submit mission to be spotlighted" button on Tribble, you'll see what they are.

Ah, that's right. The first couple had direct communication with me through social media or through my email. If that's the case, you'll get an email from me, but it will be created through the ticketing system
