My suggestion would be to have the reward based on a 30 minute mission and have the rewards scale based on how long it takes the AVERAGE player to complete the mission, so a long foundry mission and a short foundry mission would reward appropriately.

Wow thats awesome.

That will really reward more foundry gaming which is perfect because I'm planning on attempting to make my first ever foundry mission.

Agreed, but they sort of do this now in a way, since you now get some good loot playing a very long foundry mission on elite.

UGC is dropping blues. Longer the mission, more plentiful are the rewards. But, if all that the player wants are the FM and the dilithium, a longer mission will be skipped.

Yes this really was a great change. I have been doing all kinds of foundry missions today. Much better then the constant stf grind, or deferi dailies. I really hope it stays this way. Thanks again Cryptic!

Isn't it kind of amazing to play to the game this way? These are the stories of fans who love the franchise. Granted some are better than others (and we have to be forgiving of typos), but it's like trying to experience the Trek universe instead of simply doing repetitive tasks with the goal of obtaining a virtual goody.

I've spent the past week in Winter Wonderland. It felt fun. But I was constantly aware that this is a video game that is well... just a video game. There were moments today, however, when I just forgot... like when you watch a movie and forget it's a movie. That never happens with a lot of other stuff, especially if I've done those stfs 4 times already.

Any recommendations for a foundry mission with lots of pew pew that takes around that 30 minute mark? And I don't mean all pew pew no story just something that is about 30 minutes long is the big thing as the search is still a bit cumbersome.

When will that spotlight foundry mission tab work properly?

See sig. You need a good shuttle or an escort.

I just got my first foundry tip in a long time. I think that is due entirely to this change. Now I will begin making part 2 and finishing the story. I have a reason to do so. Awesomesauce.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.
