I just recently upgraded to gold and wanted to play with the foundry stuff, My main and Romulan are both KDF, and I too am having this issue, where i go to create a KDF and character creation fails totally.

I am glad that there is a fix in the works but still kinda sucks that i cant make anything until then.

For the good that more reports might do, same issue here.

The information that might be useful:
1) I am not, nor have I ever been a Gold player. I made 1 zen purchase in the 18 months that I have been playing for 2000 zen
2) I have 6 published Federation Foundry missions and 1 unpublished KDF mission
3) I can create new Starfleet Test characters in the blink of an eye, but KDF ones lead me to "Character Creation Failed"
4) My foundry slots have been bought in 4 packs, 2 times, for a total of 8 Foundry Project slots
5) I have a total of 5 holodeck characters: 2 fed, 2 kdf, 1 rommy (fed ally)
6) I can still work on my KDF mission that is unpublished and edit already-published Federation missions
7) My ingame handle: @rahmkota19

Will send a bug report when I'm back on holodeck, when I do I will edit this post to have the ID.

I tested a fix for this and things looked good on my end. So I can say that a fix is inbound. Keep an eye on the patchnotes and once the fix is live let me know if you continue to have any problems.

Dear crypticfrost,

What i was wondering; I've seen STO using the ability to "update when needed" like with the latest Azura bug or when you start working on a foundry mission (the "contacting foundry update screen").

Is there any possibility it could be part of a hot-patch? Or are you forced to wait for the next update-thursday since it's a part of the character-creation screen (pre-foundry screen)?

YES, today's patch notes said KDF character creation should no longer fail!

As soon as the server is back up after maintenance, i'll hop on the foundry and test the fix.

Thanks in advance for the fix, even if it doesnt work it shows that the foundry is being cared about!

An complete answer on this would take more knowledge than I have. We do have some options for getting new code live outside of our regular updates. As I understand them, these options are all very effort intensive, usually needing our top people to implement and/or approve their use. As such they are only used for serious problems which are affecting the majority of our player base. Anything else is left to the usual update process.

That's really all I can tell you on the matter.
