Foundry!!!!!!!!!

Today’s is supposed to be the big day! Foundry day! According to Dan Stahl, the Foundry has been on Holodeck (the live server) in internal testing for a few days. I’ve been keeping an eye in the Dev Tracker over the weekend and this morning but no mention of when it’s supposed to be activated. Of course Cryptic is a few timezones behind me, so their Monday hasn’t really started yet.

I haven’t said much about the Foundry, but I am looking forward to making some missions. I played with the Foundry a bit on Tribble a few months ago, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of time there only to have to recreate missions on Holodeck. I’m also excited to see some of the great content that people have been producing on Tribble get remade on Holodeck and played by a wider audience.

Update: I heard on Twitter from @StarbaseUGC that the Foundry goes live at 10 AM PDT (which is GMT-7).

Update 2: As of 1:18 EDT (GMT-4) Foundry is live! Hopefully it’s a smooth and easy day for the STO servers. Dan Stahl has posted an FAQ.

    Wow. Good news all around. I may have to find the time to try STO again.

      I’m looking forward to trying out the Foundry tonight. I have no idea what kind of missions I want to do yet. I’m need to see what’s possible first so I don’t get over ambitious in writing a mission. I would like to do some missions based on the planet my Kaes are from, although that’ll be a lot of work. I don’t even have a name for the planet. X)

      The FE ramp up is exciting but I’m not sure how likely that is to happen, so I’m trying not to get too pumped about the possibility of consistent weekly episodes. Honestly, I’m okay with there being a few weeks between FE series arcs. It gives me a chance to catch up my alts and play other MMOs.

      Let me know if you do decide to try th game again, I’m sure I can find you a trial key.
