# 1 New Foundy Assets Inbound

I realize with all the excitement around the new expansion stuff showing up on Tribble that not a lot of people pay attention to Red Shirt, but there was some Foundry goodness in the latest patch:

zer0niusrex sure is delivering the goods. It just feels as if she is going against the tide. Having all such assets isolated upon initial creation would have saved a lot of time, and would have enriched the community sooner. Let the past be the past, I know. But unless this has changed going forward, I fear poor Zero will be isolating Romulan expansion assets from maps, one by one, two years from now as well.

So I've had a chance to hop on Redshirt and test some of these things, and there's good stuff here.

All the gold plated starship models are here as well as a gold plated stand you can use. The other trophies are versions of the floor trophies. The Starbase and DS9 trophies are mini-versions of their larger brothers. Very useful in the right hands. The Bajoran trophy is a mini-version of Bajoran arch. It's just tall enough to walk through. String a bunch together and you could make a pipe the size of a large sewer drain. The Q chair is unfortunately just a little too small to sit in.

Everything you could want in isoliniar chips and GPL is here. The ICs come in assorted colors while the GPL comes in every variation from slips to strips to bars all the way up to 3/4-man-height stacks of bars. There's even a GPL-plated table.

The gold ore rock is huge and is enclosed in wooden scaffolding.

The DJ station and the shelf is self explanatory.

The Foundry now has a pool and poker table. The pool table includes pool cues and pool balls enclosed in a rack. Both these items are kickable. The cues are vertical until kicked, so you may need to build a rack of some kind for them.

The last thing is a new fish tank. This is better than it sounds. This is a large half-oval fish tank designed to sit against a wall. The really cool part is that it's not really a half oval. There are two sides to this tank. One has all the fish and decorations, the other is empty other than the backdrops and the wavy glass to look like water. This means you can put anything in this part and make it look like a water filled tank.

Hopefully this will give give you some ideas while we wait for this stuff to make it over to Holodeck.

Woohoo for props!

I love the mess hall stuff.

Please can we have some ceilings, floors and walls?

I love all these small things, but there are a few big things that could make a very huge difference.

I have also asked this on in the Redshirt forum, but where do the gold items actually come from? That huge rock and the gold bricks have never been used in-game, haven't they? Just curious why such a rock would suddenly appear out of nowhere.

Cool stuff this time around.


Would love some Bajoran assets next.

I think that I read somewhere that the art team makes tons of stuff in anticipation of it being needed.

Or, maybe we're seeing some kind of sneak peak at new content. I would buy a zoot suit for a return to the TOS gangster planet.

I second this. Plus I really want the Starfleet academy map :0{ (sad puppy face).

I'm grateful for the changes, but I can't help but wonder....

will they update these tools to be just like the tools from NWO so that one can do everything quickly and easily?
I would like for the devs to open a poll/feedback thread on what exactly the players would like to see in the near future for the game.
