I decided to hop in on the review thread bandwagon to help authors get more reviews either for their new missions, or to try and get it to qualify for rewards. My reviews will be not as in-depth as Stoutes or evil70th, but hopefully they will be able to help some. If you have a mission you want reviewing, please submit it below with the name, author name, and the faction. I will try to get to them as fast as possible .
If you want an in-depth spell-check review, let me know in the initial post.
Mission queue list
The Cats and Cradle, Part 1
"Into the Badlands.
Caitian's Gambit, part 1.
Covenant part 2 and 3.
Attumar: First Contact
The Caitian Gambit - Part 2 of 2 On hold.
Calarun system: Nice system, I see there are optional objectives which are always fun. All sorts of species are wanting this system. Noted no spelling or grammar errors in the story dialogue.
Moon Outpost: First impressions are WOW! I sometimes wonder how people make these custom structures on maps without going insane. It's bad enough trying to build a pre-made map. Phenomenal work. Lots of interactive objects outside of the main story to give some variety and background information. Wow I almost feel off the cliff, huge drop. You even built a base inside this giant rock. Apparently I drank an incredibly strong drink. So powerful it knocked me off my feet.
Temple: Same as before, amazing map work. Nice effects on the artifacts lighting up. Nice little mini-puzzle. Noticed a minor typo in the dialogue with the holograms. When the male one is talking about the primate super soldiers, soldier is spelled as solder.
Outpost upper level: Finding interactive objects on all level for optional content. Really helps add to the story. The voice was not what the creature I expected. Shouldn't bounds be bonds when you have to untie your allies? Nice effects with the "Voice"
Unknown location: And cliff-hanger!
Overall rating: 5 stars.
The maps were amazing. I think they were the best thing. I forgot I had run your other mission, the Nukara prime one long ago. Even though I could not remember much about it, the story was easy to follow and kept me interested. It's a shame that missions like this and others like Collateral Damage and Collectiveness Strikes gold aren't spotlights. That or not getting many plays.
Keep up the great work.
I am really curious to see what happens next. I might even get to part 2 today will have to see.
Unknown Location: Nice Elachi ambush. As with the previous mission, well done on the map and optional objectives. Spider Tholian, Spider Tholian, does whatever a spider tholian can. Some amazing trigger work here. No spelling errors noted.
Reactor: Same reactions as above, no spelling errors.
Surface: Awesome map! Super awesome huge ground battle.
Uncharted space: Super awesome space battle
5-stars, 100 dilithium tip. Notes were small since the mission was also small. Most of my likes were from the previous mission so no needed to keep repeating. The ground maps as always were well built and excellent, great job.
How did the splinter timeline come to be? Why is it wrecked by disaster? The key to it all lies with one Starfleet Admiral. Into Time's Eye now you must go.
Name: Time's Eye
This mission is a sequal to Of Terror and Darkness, and a conclusion to the mission series started with Of Morals and Ethics. This mission is dialogue heavy, with considerably more combat than the previous two. If you spam F through the dialogue, the mission won't make any sense at all. There are several optional easter eggs placed throughout the mission, so if you enjoy surprises then look around on the maps to see if there's something waiting for you.
