Ok Ive had a couple ideas for foundry arcs but both were based upon a specific mechanics that I dont know if we can do as authors. In the temporal ambassador event/mission cryptic changes your ship into a freighter and later you get in an Ambassador Class vessel, which ofc you dont own. Can we as founder authors pull off similar mechanics? Assign a player to fly an X or change their ship from whatever they are flying to Y??

If not, can we trigger a holo-costume for the players vessel similar to when you go back in time to deal with the comet?

no.

Why not? Apparently that trick is hard to do in Cryptic maps and adding it to Foundry is simply too hard.

I'm not sure what you mean? Do you mean scale the level of the player?

yeah say you want players to fight at lv1 or lv33 or whatever. Again using temporal ambassador I know Cryptic can do it cause you use the Enterprise-C at lv40(iirc) regardless of your actual level but can we do that in the foundry

The mission always scales to the player's level. It's not something we can alter.

It also scales based on groups size.

One idea was a total redo of the romulan tutorial and possibly a few missions.

The other was a fed mission set in movie era(involving time travel obviously) in both you would need to fly stuff other than your lv50 ships with your twinked out farmer gear
