It seems like an obvious choice for the next foundry challenge. Just to be clear, I do not mean "Rom faction only" missions, since that is not possible. I mean Fed/KDF missions that are written from a Rom faction point of view, now that the Romulan faction is a thing and any Rom player will be allied with Fed or KDF. Hopefully this will happen so that the new Romulan faction can get some missions that are really designed from the ground up from their perspective

Well, I have a Fed-allied Romulan mission that is 95% finished already, so that idea's just fine with me.

No spoilerz! (But I plan on straying away from "make a mission that features X faction". In regards to one that would be "make a mission that only members of the Romulan Republic will play," I would wait for the Foundry tech that allows authors to make missions that only Romulan Republic characters can play.*

*I don't know when this is happening.)

I'd really like to put my vote out there for refraining from Foundry Challenges for awhile.

The Foundry is a mess right now, everyone knows it.

To post another "Challenge" right now would be at best foolish, and at worst disrepectful to authors. The tool is broken. Crash to Desktop for many users. Klingon Foundry totally unavailable to many users, SLOOOOOOW Preview map load times, pathing issues, broken maps on missions that still can't be republished because of said breaks.

I repeat for emphasis , The Foundry Is a Mess.
It would be totally unfair to ask authors to partake in a challenge when the tool used to create missions doesn't even work properly.

Just my two strips of latinum,
Peace,

And quoted for emphasis!

The Foundry needs some serious attention from the Dev team right now - it's hardly the time to 'showcase' this (former) great feature when it's in such a terrible state of disrepair!
