Some authors were wondering if we could get exploration to be the theme of the next challenge when it comes.

I am not an author, but, I am a player.

I would love to do an exploration mission. Especially if it has puzzles and mind games in it. All the shoot 'em up activity does get a little old.

I know a couple authors, ashvop chhhoooo... excuse me, that can really make their stories come alive.

An exploration by them would be incredible.

I love nice long walks in the country.
Especially if they're taken by people who annoy me!

The closest to "exploration' I will get is exploring the origins of my characters. Unless I can slot an exploration theme into one of my main series missions lol.

One of the older challenges was like that. It wasn't strictly exploration. I think the hook was "Finding a discovery that will change the way you look at the stars forever." or something like that. It's not strictly exploration but very similar.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Exploration itself is the perfect theme in lieu of the pockets of possibility the season 8 expansion has to offer. Voyager carved into a long-saught aspect that TNG had only begun to satisfy. Let the herald of the delta quadrant sing true to an immense desire to explore, I say.

This is a theme I've considered, but is it really "exploration" when you're telling the player where to go to start the mission, the objectives, etc.? I bet there are ways to do this once in the mission, though! Is that along the lines of what you're thinking? I'm definitely open to the idea and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Cheers,

Well, in the general sense of exploration, making there be multiple paths to an objective. Not just say, "go through this forest path and ignore the others." Adding stuff like bonus npcs, easter eggs etc.
