# 1 Introducing "Officer Reports"
12-14-2012, 11:43 PM
The first in a new series I have concocted has just had it's second update published.

This is to be a series of missions designed to satisfy the "Investigate Officer Reports" requirement. Currently the first episode is in need of some playthroughs to establish an average playtime and until then , sorry it doesn't qualify, though i am very hopeful that it will.

All Episodes in this new series will come with a special, additional reward beyond the Cryptic rewards. Play the mission to find out more.

So, please go play this new mission to help it get an average playtime.
Play it again once it qualifies (hopefully). More sure now than before.

By the way, if you do check out some of the optional dialog, a rather handsome guy who is good with phasers appears. Now that he's not guarding the front page anymore, this Starfleet Security Specialist has time for other endeavours


Mission Title : Officer Reports 1 : Ushaan
Mission ID : ST-HPXL3NPMH
Author @Handle : @hippiejohn
OTHER IMPORTANT DETAILS : FED Mission, Level 35+


Peace, Love and Happy Winterthing Everyone

Edit :

12/14/2012 First Published
12/15/2012 Update 1 : Some dialog tweaks. Combat balance pass. Respawn Points added.
12/15/2012 Update 2 : Major Update. New map added. Made Andoria look more like Andoria.
Dialogue Tweaks. Combat Balance pass.
12/16/2012 Final Update : Combat Balance Pass. Minor Dialogue Tweaks.


With enough playthroughs this should definately qualify as an Investigate Officer Reports Mission.

Good story, I enjoyed it

Took approx 20 minutes to playthrough, but I did read all the storyline text and didn't just mash the F key like a lot of people do. I didn't delve particularly deep into the optional storyline text, but I enjoyed the overall mission.

Well put together, no bugs, no broken text, grammatically correct with no spelling mistakes (that I spotted ) so all in all, excellent work!

Federation Mission - Officer Reports 1 : Ushaan

Allegiance: Federation
Project ID: ST-HPXL3NPMH

----------Report Start-----------

Summary: This is a good mission with a lot of potential. The map designs are good and most of the story dialogue is very well done. I was looking forward to a great story involving Andorian traditions and a brother's pursuit of honor in defense of his kin. The shift in the story to a grind mission was annoying since there was no mention of this in the description. If you plan on keep the mission like this then you should add dialogue in the description that alludes to the possibility of this happening. I would recommend this mission to other players who like tough grinder missions but not on Elite level.

Below are some things I noted while playing the mission that I wanted to let you know about. Everything in this write up should be seen as suggestions on ways I felt you could improve certain elements of the mission. They are yours to do with as you see fit.

Mission Description: This is a good detailed description. I noted no spelling or grammatical errors with this description.

Grant Mission Dialogue: This is a good grant dialogue. I noted a couple of items to consider changing:
-Consider changing "Many Officers, and some of the enlisted & civilian crew often congregate" to read "Many Officers, enlisted and civilian crew members congregate".
-Consider changing "Some of the power consuits even run through the room" to read "Some power conduits run through the room".

Mission Task: Consider adding the start location of the first custom map to the initial mission task. I noted no spelling errors with this task.

Mission Entry Prompt: This is a good prompt. I noted no spelling or grammatical errors with this prompt.

MAPS:
'Below Decks' , Junior Officer's Lounge: This is a good map design with detailed dialogue. I noted a couple of items to consider changing:
-Consider changing the optional dialogue to triggered dialogue that goes away after the player interacts with it.
-Consider changing "So you'll come to Andoria then ?" to read "So you'll come to Andoria then?".
-The Linu dialogue; consider changing "Hey, at least this way we still have each other, right ?" to read "Hey, at least this way we still have each other, right?"
-I have noted at least three times where you have a space between the word and the "?" question mark. I also noted on the Chief Gug dialogue a space between the word and the "!" exclamation point. There are several locations where punctuation appears to have been separated from words by a single space, including the map name. From this point forward I will only note the maps this occurs on.

Andoria High Mountain Park: This is a good map design with well written story dialogue. I noted a couple of items to consider changing:
-Consider changing the optional dialogue to triggered dialogue that goes away after the player interacts with it.
-The Lieutenant JG Shraal dialogue; consider changing "we both know that the circumstances" to read "We both know the circumstances".
-Consider changing the response button "Good Luck, Lieutenant" to read "Good luck, Lieutenant".

High Mountain Park Nature Preserve, Peak: This is a simple map design with several tough battles that I would not recommend this map on Elite level. The story dialogue is well written. I noted a couple of items to consider changing:
-Check punctuation in the dialogue for spaces between the word and the punctuation.
-The console is buried in the snow. If this is intentional then consider changing the player animation to kneeling vice console interaction.

High Mountain Park Nature Preserve, Lower: This is a simple map design with several tough battles that I would not recommend this map on Elite level. The story dialogue is well written.

Andoria High Mountain Park, Breen Invasion: This is a simple map design with simple battle. The story dialogue is well written.

Andoria High Mountain Park, Ushaan Duel: This is a good map design with excellent story dialogue. I noted one item to consider changing:
-Check punctuation in the dialogue for spaces between the word and the punctuation.

---------End Report----------

Thanks again for authoring and for giving me the chance to review your work. Your map design and story dialogue have a lot of potential to become a great story about Andorian traditions and honor. I look forward to playing/reviewing more of your work in the future.
Brian
