Did my Challenge #6 mission really impress you, BranFlakes?

You're kidding right?^^ How about giving us general environmental settings for the foundry first (i.e. map requires small craft, EV suit, no away team, melee weapons only etc....).

This topic was actually the original challenge for #6 but I changed it to "Beyond the Web" once I learned Tholians were being added

Cheers,

Oh, haha, so it was just coincidence?

By the way, did you get a chance to play through my mission?

Foundry challenge #9 (8 will be Romulan content):
Create a mission where the player spawns up without the away team, has to rely on melee weapons and uses EV suit.

I"m going to pass this time. I've enough work to do with my next KDF mission; it's going to have awesome maps and it takes time. And then, I need to work on my Romulan project. I really hope we'll get the foundry up on holodeck BEFORE the LoR update so that we can hit publish on day 1.

Good luck everyone.

I don't think i'll have time to do this one, but i'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Small craft FTW!

Woah, OK, maybe I will enter this one, but I want to first give some friendly advice, based on my experience making a shuttle mission called "Trojan Horse."

Please give yourself tons of time to test. Combat is very different depending on the type of shuttle, the nature of the reskinned mob, etc.

For example, I can't complete my shuttle mission with Mk XII purples on a captain's yacht. Other people find it incredibly easy.

Every mob is a weak Orion group. If you use fighters, they are just too hard to target, from my experience.

People either find the mission incredibly easy or incredibly hard. Plus, there are tons of folks who fly in with their escorts or cruisers, ignoring "THIS IS A SHUTTLE MISSION!" Then they complain about it being too easy or too tight for their Galaxy class ships to fit through.

It's definitely a challenge. Good luck all.
